Flack on the Attack


Layne Flack is crushing his table right now, no one else is getting a look in.

Brian Brubaker raised from under the gun and was called by Josh Arieh and Layne Flack in the blinds. Arieh and Brunbaker drew two and Flack drew three.

Arieh then led for 2,500 and both opponents called. Arieh stood pat and the other two players drew two. Arieh's lead for 5,000 only attracted a call from Flack who went on to draw one. Arieh had one more 5,000 bullet in him and Flack called again.

"Ninety-seven," said Arieh. It was no good though as Flack opened {2-}{5-}{6-Clubs}{8-}{4-}.

Flack Lazer


Layne Flack raised the button and Brian Brubaker and Benjamin Lazer called out of the blinds.

Brubaker discarded two cards and his two opponents discarded three apiece. The action was then checked to Flack and he bet 2,500, called by both players.

Flack now stood pat as each of his opponents drew two. The action was checked to Lack once more and he fired 5,000 into the middle. Brubaker bailed and Lazer called and then drew one.

The last betting round saw Lazer lead for 5,000 and three-bet to 15,000 when Lack two-bet. Lack responded with a snap four-bet, and this prompted Lazer to fold.

Frederick Li Eliminated in 18th Place ($6,250); Berry Johnston Eliminated in 17th Place ($6,250)


When we reached Table 448, Frederick Li was all in and at risk against Benjamin Lazer. Lazer tabled {7-}{6-}{4-}{3-}{2-} for a seventy-six perfect, and Li flashed a nine before mucking his hand. According to a player at the table, four bets went in before the first draw, and Lazer drew one card two times. On the second draw he received the card he needed.

A few hands later, over on Table 447, Berry Johnston was eliminated as well.

Ohel Randy


Randy Ohel walked back into the tournament area and then realized there was a hand being dealt at his table. He sprinted over and just snatched his hand in time. He's probably wishing he was five minutes late as the second hand he played he lost.

The action was three-ways and by the time we got there all three were still involved at the third betting round. Ohel bet 5,000 and was snap-called by Julie Schneider, and called at a somewhat slower pace by David Baker.

Ohel: {4-}{8-}{3-}{6-}{2-}
Schneider: {6-}{2-}{3-}{5-}{7-}
Baker: {7-}{4-}{2-}{2-}{x-}

Schneider scooped the pot and was congratulated by both opponents.
