Secondary Table Hands #125-128: Brandon Steven Eliminated

• Level 19: 200,000-400,000, 50,000 ante
Brandon Steven

Hand #125: Christoph Vogelsang raised to 800,000 under the gun and he picked up the blinds and antes.

Hand #126: Cary Katz raised to 825,000 and Rick Salomon and Christoph Vogelsang called from the blinds. The flop brought out {Q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{3-Hearts} and all three players checked. The turn was the {6-Spades} and again the action was checked. On the river the {7-Diamonds} and no bets were tossed out once again. Katz showed {8-Clubs}{8-Spades} and he took down the pot, as Salomon showed {A-}{8-} and Vogelsang mucked.

Hand #127: Rick Salomon raised to 850,000 from the button and he won the pot.

Hand #128: Brandon Steven moved all in under the gun for 1,350,000 and the action folded to Cary Katz in the big blind.

"I haven't looked," Katz said as he reached for chips to make the call.

"At least look!" Steven cried, but Katz put in the call not knowing the strength of his hand.

Steven: {Q-Clubs}{9-Spades}
Katz: {10-Clubs}{7-Spades}

The board ran out {A-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{4-Spades}{6-Spades}{7-Hearts} and the river made Steven jump up from his seat. We're down to 10 players and there are now two tables of five until we lose one more. Daniel Negreanu was moved to the secondary table to balance things out.
