Just before the level went up, Ryan Olisar raised to 12,000 from the button and was met by a three-bet to 30,000 from Olivier Busquet in the big blind. Olisar responded by moved all in and Busquet called off for right around 235,000.

Olisar: {k-Hearts}{q-Spades}
Busuqet: {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}

It appeared as if Olisar had picked a bad spot to shove, but then lightning struck when the flop fell {5-Hearts}{6-Spades}{k-Spades} to give him the lead with a pair of kings. Busuqet had gotten unlucky, and he watched helplessly as the {J-Spades} blanked on the turn followed by the {2-Hearts} on the river.

Busquet exits in 20th place, which means the field is just one elimination away from the three-table redraw.

Patel Ousted in 21st Place by Metalidi

[user153638] • Level 19: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

Talesh Patel moved all in for his last 27,000 from the hijack and was called by Artem Metalidi in the big blind.

Patel: {k-Hearts}{5-Spades}
Metalidi: {q-Spades}{6-Clubs}

Patel actually got it in good, but that didn't matter as Metalidi took the lead on the {q-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{3-Spades} flop. The {6-Spades} turn gave Metalidi two pair, which left Patel drawing dead. After the {A-Hearts} was put out on the river for good measure, Patel was escorted to the payout desk in 21st place to collect $15,567.

Cohen Fails to Win the Flip

[user153638] • Level 19: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

A short-stacked Jesse Cohen moved all in for his last 52,000 from the hijack and cleared the field to Gordon Vayo, who called from the big blind.

Cohen: {k-Clubs}{j-Spades}
Vayo: {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}

It was a flip, but Cohen was the one that needed to improve. The {4-Diamonds}{q-Spades}{7-Hearts} contained paint, but not a picture card Cohen needed. The {2-Diamonds} turn was no help, and it was followed by the useless {7-Clubs} on the river. Cohen missed and became the 22nd-place finisher.

"Did you have me?" Cohen asked his opponent in regards to an earlier hand. Vayo indicated that he did and would tell him his exact holdings later.

Toole Doubles Through Buddiga

[user153638] • Level 19: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

Action folded to Jake Toole in the cutoff and he moved all in for 80,000. Pratyush Buddiga called him from the big blind and Toole discovered that he was in trouble.

Toole: {a-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}
Buddiga: {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}

Toole's best shot at winning was to catch an ace, and wouldn't you know it, the {9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{a-Clubs} flop contained one; however, Buddiga held the only club. Toole had to sweat both the turn and river, but there was no reason to fret as it came the {5-Spades} and {6-Hearts} respectively.

Big Slick is No Match for Olisar

[user153638] • Level 19: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

Heinz Kamutzki opened for 12,000 under the gun, which inspired Ryan Olisar to shove all in for 104,000 from the hijack. John Andress then called from the cutoff, the button and blinds all folded, and Kamutzki got out of the way.

Olisar: {k-Diamonds}{j-Spades}
Andress: {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}

Olisar was in dire straight, but he found new life when the {10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} flop delivered him the nuts. The {Q-Diamonds} turn meant Andress could claim the pot with a jack on the river, but it wasn't in the cards as the {5-Hearts} blanked.

Busquet Gets Reiman on the Second Try

[user153638] • Level 19: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

Olivier Busquet opened for 12,000 under the gun and was met by a three-bet to 38,000 by John Andress in the small blind. Ty Reiman then four-bet all in for 93,000, Busquet moved all in over the top, and Andress got out of the way.

Busquet: {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}
Reiman: {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}

Both players held big hands, but of course Busquet's was way out in front. The {k-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{9-Hearts} flop gave Reiman two pair, but he was left drawing to running kings as Busquet hit top set. The {3-Diamonds} turn would be the final nail in Reiman's coffin, while the {7-Diamonds} river would be the last card he would see in Event #15: $3,000 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em before exiting in 23rd place for $15,567.

Kamutzki Doubles Through Reiman Who Then Doubles Through Busquet

[user153638] • Level 19: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

Heinz Kamutzki got his stack of 180,000 all in from the button holding the {k-Spades}{j-Spades} and was up against Ty Reiman, who held the {a-Hearts}{10-Spades} in the big blind. The {k-Hearts}{3-Spades}{4-Spades} flop gave Kamutzki a big lead, and he held it on the {8-Hearts} turn and {2-Spades} river. Reiman was left with just 47,000 after the hand.

In the next hand, Reiman got it in from the small blind and Olivier Busquet called him from the big.

Reiman: {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}
Busquet: {a-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}

Reiman managed to pick up a strong hand, and he successfully dodge diamonds and aces after the board ran out {4-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{9-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{7-Hearts}.

Meanwhile, Gino Levrini was eliminated from the tournament in 24th place.
