Dan Smith Eliminated in 4th Place ($134,119)

MartianNews • Level 30: 30,000-60,000, 7,500 ante

Bert Stevens opened to 126,000 from the button and Dan Smith shoved over the top from the small blind, totaling 1,449,802. Julian Stuer re-shoved and Stevens quickly folded, leaving just two.

Dan Smith: {a-Hearts}{9-Spades}
Julian Stuer: {q-Spades}{q-Clubs}

The flop rolled out horribly for Smith when {q-Hearts}{j-Spades}{3-Clubs} landed on the board, giving Stuer a set of queens. An {8-Spades} turn brought some straight outs for Smith but he failed to complete it on the {9-Diamonds} river. Stuer scooped and Smith was eliminated in fourth place.

Mark Radoja Eliminated in 5th Place ($102,725)

MartianNews • Level 30: 30,000-60,000, 7,500 ante

The action folded around to chipleader Bert Stevens in the small blind and he elected to move his entire stack into the middle. Mark Radoja snap-called from the big blind for his 1,248,587 and the two turned over their hands.

Mark Radoja: {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}
Bert Stevens: {k-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}

The flop again favored Stevens when {j-Spades}{3-Hearts}{2-Spades} fell on the virtual felt, giving Stevens the unlikely lead. A {q-Spades} turn left Radoja with one card to survive but the {q-Hearts} river was not it and he was eliminated by Stevens in fifth place.

Isaac Haxton Eliminated in 6th Place ($78,680)

MartianNews • Level 30: 30,000-60,000, 7,500 ante

Bert Stevens continued his final table aggression and raised to 126,000 from under the gun. Isaac Haxton shoved 403,663 on the button and Stevens snap-called, putting Haxton at risk.

Isaac Haxton: {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}
Bert Stevens: {j-Diamonds}{10-Spades}

The flop came down {10-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{3-Spades} and Stevens again out flopped an opponent. An {a-Clubs} turn and {7-Diamonds} river changed not a thing and Stevens scooped the pot, eliminating Haxton from the tournament in sixth place.

MartianNews • Level 29: 25,000-50,000, 6,250 ante

Bert Stevens opened to 105,000 and Daniel Dvoress shoved his 452,881 stack on the button. Stevens called with ease and the two tabled their hands.

Daniel Dvoress: {5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}
Bert Stevens: {a-Clubs}{q-Spades}

The flop came down {a-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} and Stevens took the lead with his flopped bullet. A {9-Clubs} turn left the Canadian needing a nickel to stay alive but the {a-Spades} river was not it and he was eliminated in seventh by the red-hot Stevens.

Julian Stuer opened to 114,999 from the button, Bert Stevens defended his big blind and the flop came down {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{7-Hearts}. Stevens tapped to Stuer, he bet 98,010 and Stevens check-raised to 346,020.

Stuer called and the {3-Diamonds} peeled off as a turn card. Stevens bet 326,383, Stuer called and a {9-Hearts} completed the board.

Stevens continued for another 335,451 and Stuer quickly shoved to 1,224,066. Stevens released his hand, sending the pot to Stuer.

Sami Kelopuro Eliminated in 8th Place ($46,158)

MartianNews • Level 28: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Bert Stevens opened to 84,000 from the cutoff and Sami Kelopuro three-bet shoved for a total of 815,767. Stevens snap-called.

Sami Kelopuro: {8-Hearts}{8-Clubs}
Bert Stevens: {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}

A classic race was afoot between the two and a {k-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{10-Hearts} flop rocketed Stevens into a crushing lead. A {6-Spades} turn left Kelopuro with one last chance for romance but the {q-Spades} river was not it. Kelopuro was eliminated and Stevens secured another large pot.
