Makhija Feeling Kingly

Although we missed the action and his opponent's cards were already in the muck, we just saw Amit "amak316" Makhija double his stack with the {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs} on a board reading {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{7-Spades}{j-Clubs}. He is now sitting with a much healthier 42,000.

Big Slick Works for Chan

[user153638]

Adam Geyer raised to 2,300 from early position only to face an all-in raise for about 10,000 total from Benjamin Chan. John Thompson then pushed all in himself from the small blind for about 20,000. Geyer got out of the way and the cards were turned up.

Chan: {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}
Thompson: {9-Clubs}{9-Spades}

It was a classic race for Chan's tournament life. His big slick needed to improve, which is exactly what happened when the flop fell {2-Spades}{K-Clubs}{J-Clubs}. Chan vaulted to the lead and stayed there as the {6-Clubs} turn and {J-Diamonds} river changed nothing.

Eights are Good for Ingles

Seyed Madani raised from under the gun to 2,700 and action folded to Jared Ingles on the button who re-raised to 7,300. Madani called and the flop came {9-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}. Madani check-called a bet of 3,500 from Ingles and the {7-Spades} appeared on the turn. Madani declared he was all in and Ingles called putting his tournament life at risk.

Ingles: {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}
Madani: {a-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}

Ingles eights were ahead of Madani's ace-high and the {5-Hearts} on the river changed nothing. After the hand Ingles' stack grew to around 41,000.

Nguyen Loses Ground Early

• Level 11: 500-1,000, 100 ante

When we came to the table, the flop read {q-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}. Stephen Chimelski checked in the big blind and 2010 November Niner Soi Nguyen had bet out 4,500. Chimelski thought for about 20 seconds before sliding in a call. The turn came the {9-Hearts}, and Chimelski bet out 7,000. Nugyen instantly moved all in and Chimelski instantly called.

Chimelski: {4-Hearts}{3-Hearts}
Nguyen: {q-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}

Nguyen flopped two pair but it was well behind Chimelski's turned flush. The river brought the {2-Spades}, and Nguyen shipped about 25,000 total to Chimelski, dropping him to 80,000.

Moriarty Busts Lamarra

[user153638]

Ryan Moriarty was in the cutoff and put in a raise to 2,400 after action folded around. A short-stacked Anthony Lamarra was in the small blind and opted to move all in for his last 10,000. Moriarty thought for about 30 seconds before making the call.

Moriarty: {6-Spades}{9-Spades}
Lamarra: {A-Spades}{4-Clubs}

Lamarra was ahead preflop, but the {6-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{Q-Spades} flop delivered Moriarty a pair of sixes to take the lead. The {4-Spades} turn gave Lamarra a pair, but he still needed to pair one of his hole cards to stay alive. The dealer burned and revealed the {5-Diamonds}, giving Moriarty the pot and sending Lamarra home early on Day 2.
