Secondary Table Hand #149: Final Hand Before Redraw

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

Hand #149 Christoph Vogelsang raised to 800,000 from the cutoff and Daniel Negreanu flatted from the big blind. The duo saw {A-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{2-Hearts} touch down on the felt and they both checked. The {K-Spades} was the turn and two more checks allowed the board to finish with the {6-Clubs}. Negreanu bet 1.2 million and Vogelsang went into the tank.

After about 90 seconds, Vogelsang tossed out a call.

"I have a king," said Negreanu, rolling over {K-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}.

Vogelsang mucked his hand and Negreanu picked up the pot.

Secondary Table Hands #143-148:

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

Hand #143: Tom Hall called from the small blind and Cary Katz checked from the big blind. The flop came down {K-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{8-Spades} and Hall bet 600,000, which was enough to take down the pot.

Hand #144: Cary Katz limped from the small blind and Daniel Negreanu raised to 1.1 million from the big blind. Katz folded.

Hand #145: Cary Katz raised from the button to 1,025,000 and took down the blinds and antes.

Hand #146: Tom Hall raised to 850,000 and took down the blinds and antes.

Hand #147: Cary Katz raised to 850,000 and Tom Hall called from the big blind. The hand was checked down on a {2-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{6-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{3-Spades} board and Hall showed {K-}{J-}. Katz tabled {K-Hearts}{Q-Spades} and he won this pot.

Hand #148: Daniel Negreanu raised to 800,000 under the gun and Cary Katz called from the big blind. The flop came down {K-Clubs}{2-Spades}{6-Diamonds} and Katz lead for 1,000,000.

"I don't have the king," Negreanu smiled as he folded his cards and Katz raked in this pot.

Feature Table Hand #114: No Repeat for Esfandiari

[user101598] • Level 19: 200,000-400,000, 50,000 ante
Antonio Esfandiari is eliminated
Antonio Esfandiari is eliminated

Hand #114: Tobias Reinkemeier raised to 900,000 from the small blind Antonio Esfandiari moved all in for 5.05 million out of the big blind, and Reinkemeier called.

Reinkemeier: {a-Spades}{j-Clubs}
Esfandiari: {a-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}

Esfandiari's contingent was rather silent, whether it be because it is very late or their man was dominated we don't know. They didn't call for any cards as the dealer fanned {9-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}, and the Magician's fate was sealed when the {j-Spades} fell on the turn.

A meaningless {5-Diamonds} completed the board, adding a little bit of salt to the wound, and Esfandiari was eliminated two places shy of the money. The inaugural ONE DROP champion will still retain the largest single prize with the over $18 million he won in 2012, but he will not make a return trip to the final table.

The final nine players will now move into the mothership and battle it out on the biggest bubble in poker.

Two more checks allowed Salomon to table a winning {A-Hearts}{4-Spades} for a pair of aces.

Hand #141: Salomon completed his small blind and Christoph Vogelsang checked the big blind. The two checked down an entire board of {2-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{5-Spades} and Vogelsang tabled a winning {A-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} for ace-high.

Hand #142: Negreanu opened to 800,000 from the cutoff and picked up the blinds and antes.

Hand #134: Rick Salomon raised under the gun to 900,000 and Christoph Vogelsang called from his left. The action folded to Daniel Negreanu, and he three-bet to 2,200,000 from the big blind. Salomon folded and Vogelsang gave it some thought.

"I mis-clicked man, I was trying to make it 3.2 million," Negreanu said.

Vogelsang ultimately called and the flop came down {6-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{4-Hearts} and Negreanu bet 2.5 million. Vogelsang folded and Negreanu showed {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}.

"I would've felt so sick if I went bust there. I was just thinking 'fold, fold, fold'" Negreanu said, as he wasn't happy with his preflop three-bet. "I've mis clicked five times already in this tournament, I just keep messing up with these chips."
