No-Limit

The last hand of the current no-limit hold'em round saw some big action. Jamie Rosen got things going with an opening raise from early position, and it folded to Daniel Idema who reraised all in from the cutoff for 374,000. Then Timothy Finne called all in from the small blind for his last 313,000. Michael Muchnik folded the BB, and Rosen thought a bit before making the call.

Cards on their backs...

Finne {A-Clubs}{k-Hearts}
Rosen {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}
Idema {A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}

The flop came {4-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{3-Spades} and Rosen's jacks were still best. But the {k-Clubs} on the turn put Finne ahead. The river was the {7-Spades}, and Finne scores a huge triple up, while Rosen took the small side pot.

Idema is out, Finne catapults to about 950,000 and the current chip lead, and Rosen slips toward the back of the pack with 380,000.

Dan Battle

No-Limit

Daniel Idema limped from the small blind and Danny Hannawa checked from the big blind.

The flop came down {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs}{10-Clubs} and both players checked.

They checked the {8-Hearts} turn as well.

When the {10-Diamonds} fell on the river, Idema check-called Hannawa's 22,000 bet.

Hannawa turned over {k-Spades}{5-Diamonds} to take the pot with kings and tens.

No-Limit

Jamie Rosen opened with a raise to 39,000, and Gavin Smith called from the button. Jarred Solomon took a peek to his right, then pushed his entire stack of 346,000 in from the small blind -- to the roaring approval of his supporters in attendance.

Dan Idema folded the big blind, and both Rosen and Smith quickly got out as well. "Show the deuce!" was the cry from the bleachers. Whatever Solomon had, he chose not to share.

Solomon has worked his way back to 420,000 now.

Solomon Flops Broadway to Stay Alive

No-Limit

Jarred Solomon moved all in for 119,000. It was folded around to Jamie Rosen in the big blind who made the call.

Rosen: {a-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}
Solomon: {j-Spades}{10-Diamonds}

"Jack-ball!" shouted Solomon's rail.

They didn't get the jack-ball, instead, they got something better. Solomon flopped Broadway when it rolled out {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}. Solomon's rail went wild.

The turn brought the {10-Clubs} and Rosen would need to catch one of the remaining jacks in the deck to eliminate his opponent.

Solomon's rail began shouting for a deuce so that their comrade's tournament hopes would stay alive.

The river brought the {10-Spades} and Solomon's rail went wild again, as they saw him double up.

Solomon Slide, Smith Surge Continue

Shamus

Limit

It folded to Gavin Smith who raised from the button, and Jarred Solomon called from the small blind. The flop came {6-Hearts}{9-Spades}{7-Diamonds}. Solomon checked, Smith bet, Solomon check-raised, Smith made it three bets, and Solomon called.

The turn was the {4-Diamonds}. Solomon checked, and when Smith bet Solomon went deep into the tank. He shook his head, grimaced, and held the brim of his cap as he contemplated what to do. The day hasn't gone so well thus far for Solomon, who began as our chip leader and now finds himself becoming dangerously short.

Finally Solomon let the hand go, preserving his stack of 125,000. Smith dragged the pot, and is now up over 1.2 million.
