Dick Loses Some But Gets it Back

• Level 26: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Andrew Dick had seen about two million chips disappear from his stack but he recently got them back from one time chip leader Jonathan Dimmig and is creeping close to the nine million chip mark. Dimmig opened the action for 105,000 and Dick raised it up to 225,000. Dimmig said "how much you playing" and cracked a smile, as everyone at the table knew Dick had the chip lead. "Someone had to do that joke," Dimmig said as he made the call.

The flop came {J-Spades}{8-Clubs}{2-Spades} and Dick led out for 150,000 and was called by Dimmig. The turn was the {7-Clubs} and Dick bet again, this time for 400,000. Dimmig raised it to 800,000 and Dick didn't waste much time before making the call. The river was the {3-Diamonds} and Dick checked. Dimmig bet 800,000 and Dick quickly called. Dimmig turned over air... {K-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}. Dick had a legitimate hand {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds} for a flopped set.

Floor Threatens Sembera with Penalty

[user249920] • Level 26: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Larry Samet raised from the cutoff and action was on Michael Sembera, who had only about 11 big blinds left in the big blind. He tanked and tanked, and Maurice Hawkins finally called a clock shortly after saying he didn't want to be the guy who called the clock.

The floor began the 10 second countdown after almost a minute had passed, and Sembera pushed all in, taking down the pot when Samet folded.

After the hand, Sembera admitted he had known he was shoving and was simply stalling in hopes of a player busting at another table. The tournament supervisor overheard this, and he informed Sembera he would receive only a 10-second clock in the future, as well as a penalty, if it happened again.

Bart Lybaert
Bart Lybaert

In what is easily the biggest pot of the tournament, Bart Lybaert has been eliminated in 20th place and Andrew Dick has added to his chip lead and is now sitting with 8.575 million in chips. As told to us by Dick, it all started when Lybaert opened for the minimum and Dick called out of the big blind.

The flop came {K-Spades}{5-}{4-Spades} and Dick checked. Lybaert made a bet and Dick check-raised. Lybaert called.

The turn was the {6-Spades} and Dick check-raised again. Lybaert again called.

The river was the {10-Diamonds} and this time Dick moved all in. Lybaert made the call with {A-Diamonds}{A-Spades} but it was no good as Dick had {7-Spades}{3-Spades} for a flush. Lybaert is eliminated in 20th place and Dick sits with over four million chips than the next player on the leader board.

Sitting on only 170,000 chips, Jeremy Halaska had to make a move, and he pushed his stack in from the under-the-gun-plus-one position. Matthew Livingston made the call in the big blind and turned over {Q-Spades}{8-Spades} against Halaska's {A-Hearts}{5-Clubs}. The board ran out {7-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} and Livingston made the top pair to bust Halaska from the tournament in 21st.

Michael Stembera raised the pot under the gun, and Sean Prendiville shipped his last 300,000 or so. Jeffrey Coburn reshipped, covering Stembera, who folded.

Prendiville: {q-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}
Coburn: {10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}

The dealer put down three cards and turned them over as he prepared to spread them, and the window cards was the {10-Hearts}. Right behind it followed the {10-Spades} and the {3-Clubs}.

"He runs worse than anyone I've ever seen," Hawkins said of his former nemesis Prendiville. The {4-Clubs} turn and {9-Hearts} river put the official end to Prendiville's tournament.

Oh No!

• Level 26: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

With a flop of {Q-Spades}{J-Spades}{4-Diamonds}, Andrew Oh check raised Jonathan Dimmig's 65,000 bet to 135,000. Dimmig called. The turn was the {8-Diamonds} and Oh led out for 200,000 and was called quickly by Dimmig. The river was the {9-Clubs} and Oh bet a third time, placing out a bet of 300,000. Dimmig called and Oh said "good call" and wanted to muck his hand but was forced to show his {5-Hearts}{3-Spades}. Dimmig turned over {9-Spades}{8-Spades} for a flopped flush draw that turned into two pair.
