Event #18: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em


• Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

The players are now on their final 20-minute break of the evening. Two more levels will be played tonight, and assuming we don't find a winner tonight, we'll be back tomorrow for Day 4.

How Does He Keep Doing That?

This final table is going nowhere. Fast. Neither is Jordan Young, because he's managed to double up yet again, this time through Tristan Wade.

The action folded around to Wade who raised to 120,000 from the hijack before Young snap-shoved from the button for 665,000 with {A-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}. Wade snap-called, tabling {A-Clubs}{K-Spades} and from the look on Young's face, he wasn't liking his chances?

Why should he have worried? With his case of rungooditis now at a pandemic level, he was able to pair up (and double up) after the dealer spread the board of {9-Hearts}{A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{8-Clubs}.

Jordan Young 1,475,000 -75,000
Tristan Wade 1,200,000 -280,000

Le Picks Up Another Pot

• Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

The action folded around to Philippe Vert who raised to 130,000 before the flop; Allan Le called from the cutoff, so it was heads-up to a flop of {7-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}. Vert led out for 300,000, but folded after Le raised to 610,000.

And that's one of two flops we've seen for about 20 minutes. Honest!

Wade Bets Young Out of Pot

• Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Jordan Young opened for 135,000 from early position and action folded all the way around to Tristan Wade in the big blind. Wade called and the flop fell {5-Hearts} {K-Spades} {2-Clubs}.

Wade checked, Young bet 90,000 and Wade check-raised to 220,000. Young fired back making it 385,000, but Wade wasn't going anywhere and moved all in. Young tossed his cards in the muck and Wade took the pot.

Jordan Young Doubles. Again.

Allan Le opened for 120,000 in the hijack, Tristan Wade raised to 265,000 on the button and Jordan Young moved all in from the big blind. Le folded and Wade called. The hands were tabled and they're off to the showdown.

Wade: {3-Hearts} {3-Diamonds}
Young: {9-Hearts} {9-Diamonds}

The board ran {2-Hearts} {10-Spades} {Q-Diamonds} {4-Spades} {7-Clubs} and Young's hand held, again. Young has climbed his way back from one big blind to over 1.5 million.

Jordan Young 1,550,000 830,000

Le: {A-Diamonds} {10-Hearts}
Young: {K-Clubs} {4-Spades}

Board: {8-Diamonds} {3-Clubs} {K-Spades} {6-Diamonds} {7-Spades}

Koss Rides the Rollercoaster

Robert Koss: caught in the middle
Robert Koss: caught in the middle

In one of the biggest hands of the tournament so far, Jordan Young has scored an unlikely triple-up to stay alive at this final table!

The action folded to Young who open-shoved for 50,000 from the cutoff before Robert Koss reraised to 275,000 from the button. Philippe Vert then four-bet jammed from the small blind, making it 1,085,000 to and Stanley Tavanese folded his big blind before Koss double-fist-pump-snap-called.

Vert: {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}
Koss: {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}
Young: {K-Spades}{7-Diamonds}

Young's supporters went bananas when the dealer spread the flop of {K-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{5-Spades}, which improved to a full house when the {7-Clubs} appeared on the turn and held after the {9-Spades} bricked out on the river.

After the chips were cut down and sorted out, Koss was left with just 610,000, which went into the middle in the very next hand with {10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}. Casey Kelton called with {A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}, but the board was spread {9-Spades}{K-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{K-Clubs} to give Koss two pair and the double-up.

Philippe Vert 2,260,000 1,060,000
Robert Koss 1,220,000 -620,000
Jordan Young 295,000 245,000

Young All But Out

Jordan Young almost felted.
Jordan Young almost felted.

Foster Hays started the action by opening for 125,000 in late position and Tristan Wade raised to 260,000. From the button Jordan Young moved all in, Hays folded and Wade called.

Wade: {A-Diamonds} {A-Spades}
Young: {A-Hearts} {K-Hearts}

Board: {Q-Clubs} {9-Diamonds} {10-Hearts} {7-Hearts} {5-Diamonds}

The stacks were counted and Wade had just a tad less that Young. He was left with only 50,000 - one big blind.

Tristan Wade 2,320,000 1,255,000
Jordan Young 50,000 -780,000
