Event #3: End of Day 2

• Level 20: 4,000-8,000, 0 ante

Event #3 began Day 2 with 201 players and by the end, we have 25 remaining. Francesco Barbaro started the day in seventh place with 58,800 but has amassed a whopping 459,000 and is our chip leader. Matt Waxman is closely behind with only 1,000 less than Barbaro at 458,000.

Barbaro stormed into the lead early in the day when he bested our Day 1 chip leader Guillaime Rivet in a pot. Barbaro's {A-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{6-Spades}{5-Diamonds} was good enough on a {4-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} board to boost his stack to 211,000 at the time.

Other notables and big stacks include Vladimir Shchemelev at 335,000, Jimmy Fricke with 278,000, Humberto Brenes at 160,000 and Scott Clements at 84,000.

Those who were not lucky enough to survive the day but still left with some money included Jeff Shulman, Andy Seth, John D'Agostino, Josh Arieh, Bryan Micon, Ted Lawson, James Bord, Barry Greenstein, James Dempsey, Erik Seidel, Chau Giang, Men Nguyen and Allen Cunningham.

Players will return for play tomorrow at 2:30 p.m. in the Amazon Room once again. The $25,000 Heads-Up will continue as will the $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em and $1,500 Stud. Our first Limit and Pot-Limit Hold'em events of the series will also kickoff tomorrow with the $1,500 Limit Hold'em and $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em. Join us tomorrow once again for all of our coverage.

One Pair is Good For Half in a Four Way Pot?

• Level 19: 3,000-6,000, 0 ante

James Lenaghan was all in on a {K-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} board with three others in the hand. The rivered produced the {8-Spades} and was checked around.

Lenaghan: {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} for a pair of sixes and an ace-seven low.
Daniel Smith: {A-Hearts}{7-Spades}{3-Spades}{2-Clubs} for a pair of twos and the nut low.
Michael Deveronica: {A-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{3-Hearts} for a high card and the nut low.
Richard Monroe: {A-Spades}{J-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{2-Spades} for a pair of twos and the worst low.

Amazingly, Lenaghan’s pair was good for the high half of the main pot. Smith and Deveronica chopped the low half of the main as well as the low half of the side pot. Smith also chopped the high half of the sidepot with Monroe.

Allen Cunningham Eliminated in 26th place ($8,191)

• Level 19: 3,000-6,000, 0 ante
Allen Cunningham
Allen Cunningham

Preflop, Allen Cunningham raised to 16,000 under the gun, Jaime Kaplan raised to 24,000 in early position, Matt Waxman called on the button as did Cunningham who was left with 1,000 after the call.

The flop and turn read {Q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} and were checks all around. The river was the {4-Clubs} Cunningham and his one yellow chip checked, Kaplan bet 16,000 and Waxman went into the tank for quite a while before finally calling. Cunningham tossed in his final chip for his tournament life.

Kaplan announced he had a flush but Waxman had a better one showing {A-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} to scoop the pot and knock out Cunningham in 26th place.

Waxman has 470,000 and Kaplan is left with 140,000

The Ups and Downs of Scott Clements

• Level 19: 3,000-6,000, 0 ante
Scott Clements
Scott Clements

In a three way pot, Scott Clements led out for 8,000 on a {Q-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{3-Hearts} board, MIchael Simon called but Jacobo Fernandez check-raised to 16,000. Clements called and Simon folded.

The {J-Spades} came on the turn and Fernandez bet 16,000 with Clements calling to see the {5-Clubs} river. Fernandez fired again and Clements reluctantly folded, being showed {A-Hearts}{4-Hearts} for his trouble.

Clements was left short with about 40,000 and it all went in on the turn of a {A-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{A-Spades} board against Fernandez, after the former had made it three bets preflop and fired the flop and turn before being raised all in for his final 4,000.

Clements held {A-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} for a flush and trips leading Fernandez' {A-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{5-Spades}{5-Clubs} and the {10-Clubs} came on the river, allowing Clements to scoop and double back up.

Men Nguyen Eliminated in 27th place ($8,191)

• Level 19: 3,000-6,000, 0 ante
Men Nguyen
Men Nguyen

The drama has finally ended for Men Nguyen after some heated words were directed at him by James Lenaghan. In a previous hand where the action was on Humberto Brenes, Nguyen told him to ``Bet it like a man Humberto``. This clearly upset Lenaghan who asked for the floor to be called over. The floor gave Nguyen a warning and he asked ``What did I do?``. Lenaghan responded with ``You cheated in a lot of poker tournaments including this one``. Men said he was ``just joking around and they take it serious`` Lenaghan started chanting ``Cheater, cheater, cheater``.

The two tangle at last in what would be Nguyen`s final hand. Lenaghan raised and Men three bet from the big blind. Lenaghan put Nguyen all in and the players turned up their cards.

Nguyen: {7-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{2-Spades}
Lenaghan: {A-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}.

The board rolled out {K-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} and Lenaghan`s hand sent his foe to the payout desk.

Lex Veldhuis provided some insightful thoughts about Nguyen’s words on his twitter page to yet again: “Men The Master legendary quote #2: 'when did I ever cheat?'. He is on fire”.

Miguel Proulx Busts in 28th, Down to Three Tables

• Level 19: 3,000-6,000, 0 ante

Pot-Limit Omaha Bracelet Winner Miguel Proulx has busted in 28th place giving us our final three tables in the $1,500 Omaha Hi-Low Split 8 or Better.

Men Nguyen called the 6,000, then Proulx went all in for his last 11,000 and was called by Guillaume Rivet and Nguyen.

The flop and turn were {3-Spades}{8-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{A-Diamonds} and were all checks from Rivet and Nguyen. The river was the {7-Diamonds} Rivet bet 12,000 and Nguyen folded.

Proulx showed {A-}{8-}{10-}{Q-} for two pair but Rivet showed {5-}{6-}{x-}{x-} for a rivered straight and a low to take down the pot and eliminate Proulx.

We are down to 27 and we won't be short of action with only one level and change left in the night.
