May The Schwartz  Be With You

• Level 15: 2,000-4,000, 0 ante

Sorel Mizzi and Noah Schwartz reraised each other preflop until Schwartz could all in.

Showdown:
Mizzi: {A-Diamonds} {A-Clubs}
Schwartz: {K-Spades} {K-Diamonds}

"I feel a king coming," Daniel Negreanu said.

Board: {10-Spades} {Q-Hearts} {8-Clubs} {8-Spades} {K-Clubs}

The table got very quiet when Schwartz spiked the king on the river. Mizzi dropped to 76,000 and Schwartz is at 236,000.

Former Champ Hanging in There

[user153638]

We still have one former $10K PLH Champion in the field today, that being Nenad Medic. Back at the 2008 WSOP, Medic defeated a field of 352 players to claim the $794,112 after defeating Andy Bloch in heads-up play. That final table was quite stacked to say the least as it also included Kathy Liebert, Mike Sexton, Phil Laak, Patrik Antonius, Mike Sowers, Chris Bell, and Amit Makhija.

In a recent hand, Medic raised to 9,500 from middle position and received a call from Yosuke Sekiya in the cutoff. Medic then check-called a bet of 15,000 on {Q-Clubs}{10-Spades}{9-Spades} flop, leading to the {9-Clubs} on the turn. After both players checked, the {J-Hearts} was put out on the river and Medic led out for 28,000, which caused Sekiya to insta-muck.

No Mercy for Mercier

Jason Mercier raised to 8,000 under the gun only to have Chris Moorman, who was next to act, raise to 17,000. Action folded all the way back to Mercier and he moved all in for right around 40,000. Moorman made the call and the cards were turned up.

Mercier: {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}
Moorman: {A-Clubs}{A-Hearts}

Mercier had run smack dab into the best hand in poker and needed major help. The {4-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} flop gave him a runner-runner flush draw, so it was quite interesting when the {7-Diamonds} hit the turn. Any diamond on the river would do it for Mercier, but it was not meant to be as the {K-Hearts} rolled off the deck.

Action Slowing Down

• Level 15: 2,000-4,000, 0 ante

Since returning from the last break the field has been trimmed to six tables. With the money starting at the final three tables we're not seeing the flurry of action like earlier in the day.

It seems that the $5,000 NL tournament is drawing more interest from the field. The event was originally scheduled to go for three days but the field size has mandated a fourth day. The tournament staff is having the players play ten levels regardless of field size. The event has reached a final table and will play the day as scheduled with the remainder of the final table to be played tomorrow.

O'Dwyer Doubles Through Oliver; Lewis Eliminates Benyamine

Chip leader Chris Oliver seemed to be unstoppable today, that is until he just lost {9-Clubs}{8-Spades} to Steve O'Dwyer's {K-Hearts}{Q-Clubs} on a board reading {J-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{A-Spades}{3-Hearts}. O'Dwyer doubled on the hand to over 125000.

Meanwhile David Benyamine was eliminated at the hands of Toby Lewis.

McLean Karr Busy Rebuilding

• Level 15: 2,000-4,000, 0 ante

McLean Karr's chip stack has fluctuated throughout the day, almost being felted at one point. On the button he raised to 9,000 and Robert Mizrachi called from the small blind. The flop fell {2-Hearts} {K-Spades} {5-Clubs} and both players checked. The {9-Hearts} prompted a 12,000 bet from Mizrachi and Karr called. The river fell {9-Diamonds}, Mizrachi checked and Karr bet 23,500. Mizrachi called and mucked after Karr tabled {K-Diamonds} {Q-Clubs}.

Karr has his stack north of 190,000.
