Diaz Busts Just Short of Final Two Tables

Wilson Diaz got the remainder of his chips in against Warren Wooldridge.

Diaz: {j-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}
Wooldridge: {q-Clubs}{9-Clubs}

The board ran out {10-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{q-Hearts} and Diaz was sent to the rail. With Diaz's elimination we were left with only 18 players so they are now redrawing for seats at the final two tables.

Leecy Pulls One Over-ton

• Level 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Action folded to Matthew Leecy in the cutoff who raised to 50,000. Aaron Overton, who was on the button, re-raised to 130,000 and Leecy called. The flop came {10-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} and Leecy check-called a bet of 113,000 from Overton. The turn brought the {9-Hearts} and both players checked and saw the {7-Diamonds} come on the river. Leecy thought for a bit before firing out a bet of 425,000. Overton went into the tank before eventually saying "you've got it" and folding his hand. Leecy turned over his {k-Hearts}{q-Spades} showing that he had nothing but king-high to which Overton frowned.

Joshing For Position

Joshua Evans open shoved from early position for 148,000 and Jason Bigelow made the call in the big blind.

Evans: {10-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}
Bigelow: {A-Spades}{9-Spades}

The board came {2-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{4-Hearts} and Evans' solitary pair of deuces were enough to scoop the pot.

Jason Bigelow 420,000 -90,000
Joshua Evans 320,000 -205,000

Roy-alty

Harald Olsen raised to 40,000 and Sebastien Roy flat-called before James Matteucci reraised all in from the big blind for around 260,000. Olsen folded quickly but Roy snap-called with {K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds} dominating the short stac's {A-Hearts}{K-Spades}.

The board was the death-sentencing {K-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{7-Spades} followed by the {2-Clubs} and {2-Diamonds} which made little difference. We're now one player away from breaking to just two tables.

Alekhin Absconds With LaGarde's Chips

• Level 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

With the board reading {j-Spades}{7-Clubs}{5-Clubs}, Stanislav Alekhin bet out 78,000 and was called by Matthew LaGarde. The {k-Clubs} came on the turn and Alekhin bet again, this time for 150,000, and was again called by LaGarde. The river brought the {7-Diamonds} and Alekhin fired a third bullet into the pot, this one for 370,000. LaGarde decided he had had enough and folded and Alekhin showed his {a-Hearts}{8-Spades} bluff as he raked in the pot.

Diaz Doubles, LaGarde Losing Ground

• Level 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Matthew LaGarde raised an unknown amount and Wilson Diaz moved all in for 120,000 more. LaGarde decided to call and their hands were revealed.

LaGarde: {9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}
Diaz: {10-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}

The board ran out {j-Spades}{7-Spades}{3-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} and kings and sevens were good for a double up for Diaz.
