Bryce "bullets91" Linville Eliminated in 11th Place ($8,582.11)

AnthonyThompson • Level 39: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante

Bryce "bullets91" Linville raised all in under the gun for 986,215 and Matt "Berkey11_S4Y" Berkey gave him isolation after he came over the top for 2,747,644 from the cutoff.

Bryce "bullets91" Linville: {a-Clubs}{4-Spades}
Matt "Berkey11_S4Y" Berkey: {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}

Linville was dominated and things got worse after a king appeared in the window on the {q-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{k-Clubs} flop.

The {3-Diamonds} turn was no help to Linville as he was drawing to a chop at best but the {3-Clubs} paired the board on the river ending his tournament in 11th place.

John Hinds
John Hinds

"samadhi" raised to 240,000 from the button and John Allan "beastro" Hinds defended his big blind to see a {6-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{a-Clubs} flop.

Hinds checked, "samadhi" bet 210,000, and Hinds called, which brought about the {5-Clubs} turn. Hinds checked, "samadhi" bet 575,000, and Hinds check-raised all in for 2,461,026. "samadhi" called and Hinds discovered the bad news.

John Allan "beastro" Hinds: {a-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}
"samadhi": {8-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}

Hinds had top pair but was drawing dead as "samadhi" had turned a straight. The meaningless {10-Spades} was run out on the river and Hinds took his leave from the tournament.

Taylor "Jokerfied" McFarland: {7-Spades}{6-Spades}
John "flukedogg10" Flukey: {a-Diamonds}{3-Spades}

Benjamin "Phenom7" Underwood Eliminated in 14th Place ($6,674.97)

Chad_Holloway • Level 37: 50,000-100,000, 12,500 ante
Benjamin Underwood
Benjamin Underwood

Benjamin "Phenom7" Underwood raised to 220,000 from the hijack and "samadhi" three-bet jammed from the button. Both blinds folded and Underwood called off for 2,163,245.

Benjamin "Phenom7" Underwood: {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}
"samadhi": {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}

It was a big flip and Underwood was looking to hold to survive. That proved easier said than done though as the {9-Spades}{q-Spades}{7-Diamonds} flop paired "samadhi."

The {6-Spades} turn gave Underwood both straight and flush draws, but the {7-Clubs} bricked on the river.

Sandeep "sansara52" Mathai Eliminated in 15th Place ($6,674.97)

AnthonyThompson • Level 36: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Sandeep "sansara52" Mathai raised all in for 555,624 from middle position and received isolation from Taylor "Jokerfied" McFarland who came over the top for 1,171,578 from the small blind.

Taylor "Jokerfied" McFarland: {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}
Sandeep "sansara52" Mathai: {7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}

It was a race with McFarland taking the lead after the {a-Clubs}{10-Spades}{8-Clubs} flop paired his ace.

The {3-Hearts} turn didn't change a thing nor did the {10-Clubs} river ending Mathai's tournament in 15th place.
