Geshkenbein Guts Griffin

[user153638] • Level 17: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Ashton Griffin was recently eliminated from the tournament by Vladimir Geshkenbein. We missed the hand, but some players were kind enough to fill us in on some details.

Apparently it happened on a board reading {j-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{10-}{a-} when Griffin bet 58,000 only to have Geshkenbein raise all in. Griffin called off for approximately 180,000 holding {j-}{10-} for a full house, but it was second best as Geshkenbein held a superior boat with {q-}{10-}.

Hellmuth Sends Cantu Packing

After losing a few pots and dropping down to near 200K, Brandon Cantu opened for 12,000 from the button only to have Phil Hellmuth, who he battled against at the Event #7: $1,500 Razz final table earlier in the week, three-bet to 25,000 from the big blind.

Cantu responded by four-betting all in and Hellmuth snap-called.

Cantu: {a-Spades}{j-Diamonds}
Hellmuth: {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}

Cantu had picked the wrong time to shove as the "Poker Brat" had the best hand in poker. Cantu, who began the day as a big chip leader, wouldn't get so much as a sweat as the board ran out {7-Spades}{6-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{2-Spades}. Ship the pot to Hellmuth, who it should be noted is notching his 102nd WSOP cash in this event.

Wolters & Hutter Fall

[user153638] • Level 17: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Derek Wolters moved all in from the cutoff for his last 107,000 and two-time bracelet winner Brandon Cantu called him from the small blind.

Wolters: {a-Hearts}{10-Hearts}
Cantu: {j-Diamonds}{j-Spades}

Wolters was in need of some help, and while he didn't get much on the {7-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} flop, the {3-Hearts} turn was a pretty looking card as he picked up a flush draw. The {10-Clubs} river actually paired his ten, but it wasn't enough to overcome Cantu's fishhooks.

Meanwhile, Barry Hutter was eliminated in 33rd place in unknown action.

Vo vs. Cantu

[user153638] • Level 17: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Brandon Cantu opened for 12,000 from the cutoff and then called when a short-stacked Viet Vo shoved all in for 51,000 from the big blind.

Cantu: {a-Clubs}{3-Hearts}
Vo: {a-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}

Vo had the better kicker, and he was looking good through the {4-Clubs}{q-Spades}{6-Diamonds} flop. The {5-Hearts} turn made things interesting as Cantu picked up an open-ended straight draw, but it didn't come in as the {6-Hearts} blanked on the river.

Olisar Moves All In

[user153638] • Level 17: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Action folded to Ryan Olisar in the cutoff and he shoved all in for his last 66,000. Barry Hutter called from the small blind, and likely regretted it upon seeing the cards.

Olisar: {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}
Hutter: {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}

The board ran out a safe {j-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{6-Spades}{2-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} and Olisar was shipped the double.

Jarvis is No Toole

[user153638] • Level 17: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Action folded to former November Niner Matt Jarvis on the button and he raised to 8,500. Davidi Kitai called from the small blind, and then Jake Toole three-bet to 26,000 from the big. Jarvis responded by moving all in for right around 145,000, Kitai folded, and Toole wasted little time in dropping in a call.

"Nice hand," Jarvis said even before seeing the cards.

Toole: {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}
Jarvis: {a-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}

The {k-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} flop paired Toole, which left Jarvis in need of running cards. The {K-Hearts} turn made that impossible, and Jarvis was eliminated from the tournament after the {7-Diamonds} was run out on the river.
