YorkshirePud • Level 9: 300-600, 75 ante

The players are heading for a 20-minute break while the green T25 chips are raced off and taken out of play.

Harder Hands Over 8,350 Chips

YorkshirePud • Level 9: 300-600, 75 ante

Christian Harder was in the big blind facing a raise to 1,300 from the player on the button. Harder moved all-in, covering his opponent, and that opponent instantly called, as would you if you had the {A-Spades}{A-Clubs} in your hand.

Harder revealed {Q-Hearts}{10-Hearts} and when the five community cards fell {10-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}, Harder had to hand over 8,350 of his stack, but still has 14,000 chips remaining.

Allen's Around Average

YorkshirePud • Level 9: 300-600, 75 ante

It's not been the greatest of World Series of Poker's for popular British pro Kevin Allen, mainly due to some terrible luck in some of the earlier events. So far in this event things seem to be evening out because as we approach the final break of the day and head rapidly towards the money places, Allen has 16,300 chips in front of him.

We caught a simple hand with Allen that saw him open to 1,500 from the small blind and win the blinds and antes. They all count when all is said and done.

Pilgrim Is Out

Dwyte Pilgrim
Dwyte Pilgrim

We caught the action after a flop of {a-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{5-Hearts}. Dwyte Pilgrim checked from the small blind and another player bet 2,200. Terik Brown called, as did Pilgrim. The turn was the {2-Hearts} and Pilgrim moved all in. The original bettor folded and Brown made the call.

Pilgrim: {a-Spades}{2-Spades}

Brown: {k-Hearts}{j-Hearts}

Pilgrim would need to catch an ace or two to stay alive, but the river was the {7-Spades} and Pilgrim was gone.

Mattern Takes One Down On The Turn

YorkshirePud • Level 9: 300-600, 75 ante

The action folded around to Arnaud Mattern on the button and he raised to 1,300. The small blind passed, but the big blind put in the extra chips needed to make the call.

The big blind then checked to Mattern on the {J-Clubs}{K-Spades}{J-Hearts} flop, Mattern made a continuation bet of 1,700 and it was quickly called. Mattern then bet 2,900 when his opponent checked the {Q-Hearts} turn and it was enough to win the pot and take Mattern's stack towards the 50,000 chip mark.

Mattern is now seated to the left of British pro Sunny Chattha who has 22,000 chips in his stack. If those two clash there could be fireworks!

Rhys Jones' attempts to turn 10 big blinds into over $300,000 has ended in failure as his seat is now occupied by another player. No doubt Jones will be attempting Operation Spin-Up Part Two in the next few days.

Liebert's Two Pair Not Good

[user269680] • Level 9: 300-600, 75 ante

Kathy Liebert got the last of her chips in from the button and the player in the small blind made the call.

Liebert: {q-Hearts}{3-Hearts}

Opponent: {q-Spades}{j-Spades}

"I think I need one of these," Liebert said, pointing to her three. The board ran out {5-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{3-Clubs} and Liebert got her three, but with the nines on the board, her opponent's kicker played and Liebert exited the tournament area.
