Players are on a five-minute break.

Big Slick Goes Down in Flames for Rosen

Chad_Holloway • Level 30: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante

James "biggs2424" Anderson raised to 40,000 from the hijack and Frank "Spaghettiii" Marasco called from the small blind. Matthew "saul_goodman" Rosen then three-bet jammed for 457,610 before Anderson moved all in over the top. Marasco folded and the hands were turned up.

Matthew "saul_goodman" Rosen: {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}
James "biggs2424" Anderson: {10-Clubs}{a-Clubs}

Rosen got it in good but fell behind when the {10-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} flop paired Anderson. The {9-Diamonds} turn meant another diamond on the river would result in a chop, but the {9-Hearts} was not it. Anderson won it with two pair and Rosen exited in 21st place for $3,480.96.

Gisler Eliminated After Running Ladies

AnthonyThompson • Level 29: 10,000-20,000, 2,500 ante

Jon "jonnyg93" Gisler raised all in for 47,096 from the cutoff and Dylan "pokernpizza" Hortin called from the big blind.

Jon "jonnyg93" Gisler: {k-Hearts}{4-Clubs}
Dylan "pokernpizza" Hortin: {q-Hearts}{8-Spades}

The {j-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} flop paired both players and kept Gisler ahead until the {q-Spades} appeared on the turn, giving Hortin two-pair.

Gisler needed to spike a king, jack or four on the river to stay alive but it came the {10-Spades} and ended his tournament.

Daniel "spicoli24" Sepiol Poised For a Breakout

AnthonyThompson • Level 29: 10,000-20,000, 2,500 ante
Daniel Sepiol
Daniel Sepiol

Daniel "spicoli24" Sepiol has been a fixture on the Midwest poker circuits for a few years, spending much time on the felt on the Mid States Poker Tour, Heartland Poker Tour, and World Series of Poker Circuit, to name a few places the Indiana native has frequented. 2021 has served as a leaping pad for Sepiol to take a big step towards the next level, and his results leading up to the WSOP.com Online Bracelet Series speak for themselves.

Sepiol's first taste of success came in March during the 2021 MSPT Iowa Riverside $1,100 Main Event. Sepiol took down his first MSPT title, along with a career-high score of $162,781 for beating a field of 862 entrants. June was another lucrative month for Sepiol, as he earned $105,450 in a heads-up chop with Michael Newman in the Venetian Deep Stack Championship Series Event #45: $1,100 Ultimate Stack. He capped off his stellar month with a 45th-place finish in the Wynn Millions $10,000 NLH for $51,650.

Sepiol now sets his sights on the WSOP.com Online Bracelet Series, looking to continue his plethora of success in 2021. Will he continue the breakout year in his transition to the virtual felt? We'll be keeping our eyes on his performances all summer long.

Ryan Laplante
Ryan Laplante

Ema "Momma_says" Zajmovic moved all in for 167,712 from the button and Ryan "Protential" Laplante called from the big blind.

Ema "Momma_says" Zajmovic: {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}
Ryan "Protential" Laplante: {j-Clubs}{k-Clubs}

It was a flip and Zajmovic was looking to hold to stay alive. She did so on the {9-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{9-Spades} flop, but disaster struck when the {j-Diamonds} turn paired Laplante.

Zajmovic had plenty of outs but the {7-Spades} river was not one of them. Zajmovic was eliminated in 35th place for $2,859.
