"SpokyAct1on" Eliminated in 16th Place ($5,287.96)

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

Action folded to "alululululu" on the button and they moved all in for more than 3.5 million, which put the short stacks in the blin to the test. "SpokyAct1on" was in the big blind and opted to call off for 836,088.

"alululululu": {7-Spades}{a-Hearts}
"SpokyAct1on": {q-Spades}{q-Hearts}

"SpokyAct1on" woke up with a big pocket pair, but disaster struck when the {10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{a-Clubs} flop paired "alululululu's" ace. Neither the {3-Diamonds} turn nor {7-Clubs} river helped "SpokyAct1on" and they exited in 16th place.

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

"CalcFather": {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}
Scott "shaderade" Stewart: {10-Spades}{9-Spades}

The {9-Diamonds} turn paired Stewart and he was looking good to score a double until the {k-Clubs} appeared on the river ending hsi tournament in 21st place for $4,247,71.

"barguy": {a-Hearts}{5-Hearts}

"noz222" Can't Find Case Jack

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

John "flukedogg10" Flukey raised to 120,000 from the hijack and Christopher "BasIle28" Basile three-bet to 375,000 from the cutoff. "noz222" then moved all in for 495,811 from the big blind, Flukey re-jammed over the top for 2,575,404, and Basile got out of the way.

"noz222": {j-Diamonds}{j-Spades}
John "flukedogg10" Flukey: {k-Spades}{k-Hearts}

The {k-Diamonds}{q-Spades}{j-Hearts} flop gave both players a set, and that meant "noz222" needed to fine the case jack to stay alive. The {a-Hearts} turn wasn't what he was looking for and neither was the {a-Spades} river.

"noz222" was eliminated in 26th place for $4,247.71.

Christopher "BasIle28" Basile: {5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}
Kevin "GoneBananas" Garosshen: {a-Spades}{4-Hearts}

Garosshen was behind and nothing changed after the {9-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} flop.

Mike Matusow

Mike "mouth123" Matusow moved all in for 348,690 from middle position and "eric_shun" called from the big blind.

Mike "mouth123" Matusow: {k-Clubs}{8-Clubs}
"eric_shun": {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}

"eric_shun" woke up with the granddaddy of all hands and Matusow was in trouble. The {j-Clubs}{5-Spades}{7-Clubs} flop gave Matusow a club flush draw, but he missed when the {3-Diamonds} bricked the turn followed by the {k-Hearts} on the river.

Matusow took his leave in 30th place for $3,380.83.
