Holden Holds and Doubles


Action folded to Ben Lamb in the small blind and he raised to 525,000. Samuel Holden reraised all in for 3.24 million and Lamb quickly called.

Lamb's {A-Spades}{9-Hearts} was dominated by the {A-Diamonds}{J-Hearts} for the at-risk Holden. After the board ran out {8-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{2-Spades}, Holden doubled up to 6.75 million in chips.

Makievskyi Over 30MM


Anton Makievskyi opened to 450,000 from the cutoff seat, Sam Barnhart called on the button, and both blinds released. The flop came down {2-Spades}{a-Hearts}{7-Spades}, and both players checked. The turn was the {9-Diamonds}, Makievskyi fired 600,000, and Barnhart called.

The {2-Diamonds} completed the board, and Makievskyi slid out 1.1 million. Barnhart quickly folded, and Makievskyi added to his chip lead, becoming the first player with over 30 million chips.

Aleksandr Mozhnyakov Eliminated in 19th Place ($302,005)

Shamus • Level 32: 100,000-200,000, 30,000 ante
Aleksandr Mozhnyakov - 19th place
Aleksandr Mozhnyakov - 19th place

It folded around to Sam Barnhart in the cutoff seat who raised to 560,000, then Aleksandr Mozhnyakov reraised all in for his last 1.525 million from the small blind. The big blind got out, and Barnhart made the call.

Mozhnyakov: {K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}
Barnhart: {A-Spades}{10-Hearts}

A couple of live cards for Mozhnyakov, but none of the five community cards would hit his hand, as they came {4-Clubs}{3-Spades}{4-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}. Mozhnyakov is out in 19th, while Barnhart now has 6.245 million.

There will be a slight delay now as they redraw for the final two tables.

Gionni Demers Eliminated in 20th Place ($302,005)

With no love on the river, Gionni Demers is out in 20th place.
With no love on the river, Gionni Demers is out in 20th place.

Action folded to Gionni Demers on the button and he simply moved all in. The small blind got out of the way, but Konstantinos Mamaliadis snap-called from the big.

Demer: {A-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}
Mamaliadis: {K-}{K-}

Demer was in trouble and needed some help, his best bet being an ace. The {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} was not what he was looking for, and neither was the {6-Spades} turn. In order to keep his 2011 Main Event hopes alive, Demers needed to catch an ace on the river. Unfortunately for him, the {7-Hearts} blanked and he was eliminated from the tournament in 20th place.

Big-Stack Poker from Makievskyi


Khoa Nguyen raised to 450,000 from middle position and action folded to Anton Makievskyi in the big blind. He opted for a three-bet to 1.1 million, Nguyen called, and the flop came down {A-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}. Makievskyi was first and led out for 1.1 million, which Nguyen quickly raised to 2.5 million.

Makievskyi thought for a moment before sliding three stacks of lavender T100,000 chips into the pot, which constituted a raise to 6 million. Nguyen thought for about 45 seconds before caving to the pressure.

Lamb Defending the BB Again


Andrey Pateychuk raised to 400,000 and Ben Lamb called from the big blind, yet again defending. The flop came down {J-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{2-Hearts} and both players checked to see the {6-Hearts} land on the turn and put a fourth heart on board. Lamb bet 400,000 and Pateychuk called. The river paired the board with the {6-Spades} and Lamb bet 1.2 million. Pateychuk folded and Lamb won the pot.

Shih Shoves

Chad_Holloway • Level 32: 100,000-200,000, 30,000 ante

Anton Makievskyi raised to 450,000 under the gun and action folded to Konstantinos Mamaliadis, who made the call from the button. Kenny Shih then moved all in for about 3.655 million from the small blind, which proved enough to push both Makievskyi and Mamaliadis off their hands.
