Geyer Busts Young

Just before the break, Justin Young open shoved all in for about 90,000. Action folded around to Adam Geyer, better known as "csimmsux" online, and he woke up with a monster in the big blind, and instantly called.

Justin Young: {j-Spades}{j-Hearts}
Geyer: {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}

The board ran out {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}{6-Spades}{5-Hearts}{q-Clubs}, and Geyer collected the bounty to boost his stack up to 450,000.

Last Woman Standing Doubles


Action folded around to the player on the button and he shoved all in for around 140,000. Jamie Kerstetter, the last woman remaining in the field, sanp-called from the small blind for 117,500. The big blind got out of the way and it seemed Kerstetter had caught the button on a steal attempt.

Button: {8-Hearts}{3-Hearts}
Kerstetter: {A-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}

The {7-Spades}{9-Spades}{4-Clubs} flop didn't change a thing, but the {5-Hearts} turn have the button a gut-shot straight draw. Luckily for Kerstetter, the {4-Hearts} blanked on the river and she doubled.

Latimer Caught Off Guard

After what looked like a standard raise preflop, three players, including Seyed Madani and Adam Latimer, took a flop of {6-Clubs}{2-Spades}{6-Spades}. First to act, Madani over bet the pot, going all in for about 300,000. The other player quickly folded, and Latimer expressed his feelings perfectly, as his eyes shot open and he said "Holy S**t." Latimer thought for about 30 seconds, before he let his hand go, giving the pot to Madani.

Seyed Madani 400,000 25,000
Adam Latimer 110,000 -40,000

Cartwright Must Be Doing Something Right


Kyle Cartwright moved all in from early position for 97,000 and cleared the field all the way around to the big blind, who quickly called with {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}. Cartwright wasn't happy as he tabled {7-Spades}{7-Clubs}. The {J-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{5-Clubs} flop gave the big blind a set and sent Cartwright reaching for his backpack.

Just as he was poised to leave, the dealer burned and turned the {2-Clubs}. "Clubs," someone said. Cartwright turned around just in time to see the {4-Clubs} spike on the river to give him the improbable flush. Cartwright jumped up and down in excitement as he took down the nearly 200,000 pot.

Another Player Gets the Gill-otine

Carter Gill has certainly been involved in a lot of hands today. The player on the button raised all in for his last 90,000 and Gill wasted no time in calling from the small blind.

Gill: {j-Spades}{j-Hearts}
Button: {a-Hearts}{3-Hearts}

While the flop of {7-Clubs}{3-Spades}{6-Spades} gave the button a few more outs, the {j-Diamonds} on the turn gave Gill a set and the win. The {9-Hearts} on the river was meaningless and Gill sent another player to the rail.
