Officla Heads-Up Chip Counts

[user80015]

Here are the official counts for the heads-up play. The players are now a 15-minute break.

Allen Bari 11,100,000 4,125,000
Maria Ho 1,875,000 -75,000

Sean LeFort Eliminated in 3rd Place ($348,128)

[user80015] • Level 32: 60,000-120,000, 15,000 ante
Sean LeFort - 3rd Place
Sean LeFort - 3rd Place

From the button, Sean LeFort raised to 240,000. Allen Bari reraised from the small blind to 660,000 and Maria Ho got out of the way in the big blind. LeFort tanked for a bit and then announced that he was all in. Bari met him with a snap call and tabled the {K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}. LeFort held the {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}.

The flop came down {K-Spades}{6-Spades}{4-Diamonds} and Bari's cheering section erupted as he spiked a set of kings. As it was realized earlier when Bari was all in against Ho, anything can happen with the turn of a card in this game and LeFort still had a backdoor flush draw.

The turn was red, but it was the {10-Hearts} and allowed LeFort to stay alive, albeit with just one out -- the case ten. Bari headed over to his rail and couldn't watch, fearing the worst even though he had a commanding lead with one card to come.

As Bari stood against the rail surrounded by his friends with his back to the action, the river completed the board with the {7-Clubs} and that was it. LeFort had fallen second place in this hand to Bari and that meant he was out in third place overall.

LeFort took home nearly $350,000 for his finish and now it's heads up between Bari and Ho. We'll have the official counts coming for you shortly.

LeFort Doubles Again

[user80015] • Level 32: 60,000-120,000, 15,000 ante

From the small blind, Allen Bari made it 300,000 to go only to have Allen Bari three-bet jam all in. LeFort made the call for his 1,945,000 in chips.

Bari: {Q-Diamonds}{9-Spades}
LeFort: {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}

With LeFort in the lead, the {10-Spades}{3-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} flop would change little until the {K-Hearts} on the turn gave LeFort the commanding lead. Needing a jack to take the pot, Bari wouldn't see it as the {Q-Hearts} landed on the river to gift LeFort the double.

Bari Flop Win

[user80015] • Level 32: 60,000-120,000, 15,000 ante

Allen Bari entered the pot from the button for 240,000 and Sean LeFort made the call from the big blind to see a {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{5-Spades} flop fall.

Bari's 180,000-chip continuation-bet was enough to produce a fold from LeFort.
