Back in twenty minutes for the last two levels.
We walked up to a board of and Stephen Foutty had bet 35,000. Jai Gao was his heads up opponent and he thought for a moment before reraising all in. Foutty quickly made the call and turned over for the flush draw.
Gao had and had to fade hearts or a queen, but the turn sealed his fate. The inconsequential fell on the river and Foutty scored a big one, sending Gao to the showers.
Niall Farrell opened to 16,000 from middle position and Steve Chanthabouasy three-bet to 35,000 from the button. Action folded back to Farrell who made the call. The flop was and Farrell checked.
Chanthabouasy bet 35,000 and Farrell raised all in. Chanthabouasy snap-called and turned over for a set of nines. Farrell flipped over and was drawing to the flush. No spade on the or the river though and Chanthabouasy takes a big one, leaving Farrell with just a few big blinds.
We currently don’t have the full details but while Cuch was being eliminated on another table and counts were verified Scott Hertz too headed for the exit.
We’ll bring you more when we can.
Ken Weinstein was all in preflop with but it was Ademir Cuch who was at risk with the lower stack and the pair .
The board ran out with the queen right there on the flop to send Cuch to the pay-out desk, shaking hands and being hugged by friends on the rail as he went.
Jamie Kerstetter open shoved from middle position for 80,500 and Steve Chanthabouasy made the call from the big blind.
The board ran out and Kerstetter is out.
The field has recently re-drawn to the final three tables. A seating chart will be posted shortly.
David Melius was on the button and shoved for his last chips. He was covered by Jason Paster in the small blind who made the call.
Melius had and couldn’t believe he had run into the better of Paster.
The board ran out and quads jacks certainly did the job as Melius exited in 28th place.
