Erick Lindgren Eliminated in 13th Place ($11,957)

[user38873] • Level 19: 4,000-8,000, 0 ante
Erick Lindgren
Erick Lindgren

In a previous hand, Erick Lindgren limped and then called a raise to 40,000 by Millard Hale to fold on the {5-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{A-Spades} flop after Hale bet the pot for 75,000. Shortly after, Lindgren limped again and Brandon Paster raised to 24,000 from one seat over. All opponents folded and Lindgren now reraised to 84,000. Paster pondered about his decision and ultimately made the call.

Lindgren had about 50,000 behind and moved all in after the {9-Spades}{6-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} flop. Paster made the call.

Paster: {Q-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}
Lindgren: {A-Clubs}{A-Spades}{8-Spades}{10-Diamonds}

Paster turned a huge double draw with the {10-Hearts} and the {Q-Spades} river saw him improve to a straight. Lindgren will have to settle for 13th place and headed to the payout desk.

Morgan Popham Eliminated in 14th Place ($11,957)

• Level 19: 4,000-8,000, 0 ante
Morgan Popham
Morgan Popham

Morgan Popham and Matthew Humphrey exchanged raises and Popham was all in and at risk. The hands were turned over and were as follows:

Popham: {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{5-Clubs}
Humphrey: {K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{4-Clubs}

The flop came {A-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} giving Popham a gutshot straight draw. The turn was the {7-Hearts} adding a heart flush draw to Popham's outs. The river, however, was the {K-Clubs} giving Humphrey a set of kings and the pot. Popham was eliminated in 14th place and Humphrey moved his stack to 410,000 with that pot.

Adam Laskey

We saw three players to the {9-Spades}{10-Clubs}{5-Hearts} flop and Adam Laskey bet 60,000. Gabriel Nassif folded but Brandon Paster raised the pot, Laskey moved all in and was quickly called.

Paster: {9-Hearts}{10-Spades}{Q-Spades}{K-Hearts}
Laskey: [QdKd9dJh|

Laskey had a ton of outs to improve but both the {6-Spades} turn and the {6-Hearts} river blanked. Paster scooped the pot with two pair, tens and nines. Once the stack was counted, Paster had 220,000 and his opponent was covered by a small blind only.

Adam Laskey Doubles Up

• Level 19: 4,000-8,000, 0 ante

Gabriel Nassif opened for a minimum raise to 16,000 and it was folded to Adam Laskey who made it 52,000 to go. Nassif made the call and the flop was {K-Spades}{6-Clubs}{6-Hearts}. Both players checked. Laskey bet 20,000 on the {2-Clubs} turn and Nassif made the call. The river was the {10-Clubs} and Laskey moved all in for his last 47,000.

Nassif rolled his eyes and asked "what is it, 47?" He tossed his hands into the air and leaned back. "Uuuuuhhhhhh," he moaned, flinging his hand several times towards the center of the table, his index finger extended. He counted the call out and set it squarely into the middle of the table. Laskey quietly, and proudly, turned over {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} for a flopped full house, kings full of sixes. Nassif mucked his hand and Laskey dragged the 250,000 chip pot.

Popham Doubles Through Valouev

[user38873] • Level 19: 4,000-8,000, 0 ante

Galen Hall opened the action with a raise to 20,000 and Morgan Popham reraised to 64,000. Dmitrii Valouev moved all in and Popham called off for 112,000 in total, Hall laid down his hand.

Popham: {K-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}
Valouev: {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{5-Clubs}

"King maybe?" asked Popham towards the dealer. The {3-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{J-Hearts} flop was no help, but the {J-Clubs} turn saw Popham muttering a "that will do." The {2-Diamonds} river was a blank and Popham doubled up.

Saul Takes From Hall

[user38873] • Level 19: 4,000-8,000, 0 ante

We saw a three-way flop of {7-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} and the action was checked around. On the {K-Diamonds} turn Kevin Saul bet 28,000 and Galen Hall called from the button, Morgan Popham folded. The {4-Hearts} river completed the board and Saul slid forward a stack of red T5000 chips.

Hall quickly called and then mucked when he was shown the {8-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{10-Spades}{K-Spades} for the nine high straight. The bet was for 90,000 and Saul then asked "Did you river the eight high straight?" to which he received the reply "yeah, and had the flush draw" from Hall.

[user38873] • Level 19: 4,000-8,000, 0 ante

The first couple of hands in level 19 weren't as exciting. The only interesting one saw Gabriel Nassif raise the small blind to 20,000 and Gabriel Nassif taking it down one seat over with a raise of pot size to 72,000.
