Hron Bows Out; Zack More Than Doubles

Chad_Holloway • Level 35: 30,000-60,000, 7,500 ante

Tom "Tailspin" Hron moved all in for 356,588 under the gun and Daniel "PepperPrince" Zack three-bet jammed for 447,624 from the button. Dennis "WhiteRuntz" Zollo, who had the biggest stack, then moved in from the small blind.

Tom "Tailspin" Hron: {k-Spades}{10-Spades}
Dennis "WhiteRuntz" Zollo: {a-Clubs}{q-Spades}
Daniel "PepperPrince" Zack: {j-Spades}{j-Clubs}

The board ran out {9-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{4-Spades} and Zack won the pot with jacks and fours. That sent Hron out the door in 21st place for $2,770.41,

Daniel "DNegs" Negreanu's Run at Bracelet No. 7 Ends in a Flip

Chad_Holloway • Level 34: 25,000-50,000, 6,250 ante
Daniel Negreanu
Daniel Negreanu

"dogmai" raised to 100,000 from middle position and Daniel "DNegs" Negreanu three-bet all in for 601,538 from the button. Both blinds folded and "dogmai" quickly called.

"dogmai": {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}
Daniel "DNegs" Negreanu: {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}

It was a classic flip and Negreanu was looking to improve to continue his run at a seventh bracelet. Unfortunately for the GGPoker Ambassador, the board ran out a lowly {3-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{4-Spades} and his run came to an end in 25th place for $2,770.41.

Uri "JanJurik" Avissar

AnthonyThompson • Level 34: 25,000-50,000, 6,250 ante

Scott "intheblack14" Epstein open-jammed for 411,508 from the cutoff and "dogmai" called from the button.

Action folded to Uri "JanJurik" Avissar who called off his 240,330 stack from the big blind and the three players tabled their hands.

"dogmai": {k-Spades}{j-Spades}
Uri "JanJurik" Avissar: {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}
Scott "intheblack14" Epstein: {a-Hearts}{q-Spades}

Avissar held the best hand and nothing changed after the {10-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{6-Spades} flop.

The {q-Hearts} turn paired Epstein's lady but it also gave "dogmai" an open-ended straight draw .

Luckily for Epstein, the {2-Clubs} appeared on the river securing him the pot and Avissar's $100 bounty.

Negreanu Hooks a Bounty

Chad_Holloway • Level 33: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

"3sleekgreek3" moved all in for 370,570 under the gun and Daniel "DNegs" Negreanu jammed for 890,968 next to act. The rest of the players folded and the hands were turned up.

"3sleekgreek3": {a-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}
Daniel "DNegs" Negreanu: {j-Spades}{j-Hearts}

Negreanu was ahead and improved to a set on the {10-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{a-Clubs} flop, which improved to a full house on the {a-Hearts} turn. However, the same card gave "3sleekgreek3" trip aces and had him drawing live to the river. Unfortunately for "3sleekgreek3," the {2-Hearts} was a brick and they were eliminated in 31st place for $2,247.69.

Aaron Klausman
Aaron Klausman

Aaron "air1227" Klausman moved all in for 291,533 from the cutoff and Ha "BigHeaded" Diep called out of the small blind.

Aaron "air1227" Klausman: {2-Spades}{2-Diamonds}
Ha "BigHeaded" Diep: {a-Hearts}{4-Spades}

It was a race and Klausman was looking to hold to double, but that proved easier than done as the {a-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{7-Spades} flop paired Diep. Neither the {5-Diamonds} turn nor {9-Hearts} river helped Klausman and his run came to an end in 33rd place for $2,247.69.
