Event #43: $1,500 Limit Hold'em

Paul Mannoni Eliminated in 15th Place ($9,330)

• Level 19: 6,000-12,000, 0 ante
Paul Mannoni
Paul Mannoni

Paul Mannoni and David Chiu exchanged a series of raises both pre-flop and on the flop that would ultimately lead to Mannoni being all in. The flop was {9-Spades}{6-Hearts}{4-Spades} and Mannoni held {8-}{8-}. Chiu had {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}, however, and Mannoni would need help to not be eliminated. The turn was the {2-Clubs} and the river was the {10-Diamonds} and the Day 1 chip leader Mannoni was eliminated in 15th place for $9,330.

Chiu, in the meantime, has worked himself from a short stack to an above average stack and the five time bracelet winner is putting himself in position to go after number six.

Jon Seaman

We didn't pick up the action until Jon Seaman was all in on the river and was up against Bryce Landier on a {K-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{9-Clubs} board. Seaman had {9-Spades}{6-Spades} for a rivered full house, nines full of sixes but Landier had {J-}{J-} for a bigger full house and Seaman was eliminated in 18th place.

Last Break of the Day

• Level 18: 5,000-10,000, 0 ante

Twenty-minute break now and then just two more levels of Limit Hold'em action before the players bag up for the night.

Berry Johnston Eliminated in 19th Place ($6,048)

• Level 18: 5,000-10,000, 0 ante
Berry Johnston -19th
Berry Johnston -19th

Berry Johnston only had 2 big blinds after opening and folding on the flop a couple of hands previously. He put it in with {k-Hearts}{2-Hearts} and Mitch Schock would be the one to put him out with {a-}{k-}.

The dealer couldn’t do Johnston any favours and he made his way to the pay-out desk just as the penultimate level of the night was drawing to a close.
