Luft Spikes Miracle Turn to Double Through Mandic

Nível 16 : 2,500/5,000, 500 ante

We arrived at the table in time to find Antonio Luft all in and at risk for his last 145,000 against Goran Mandic. The flop read {J-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} and both players had flopped sets.

Luft tabled {9-Diamonds}{9-Spades} and was dejected to find that Mandic held {J-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} for top set. Play was halted while the ESPN camera crew was called over. Luft stood up and stared at the board with a stunned look on his face. After about one minute, the dealer was instructed to roll out the rest of the board.

The dealer tapped the table and produced the turn card.

The {9-Hearts}.

Players around the table gasped and yelled in disbelief as Luft had spiked a fourth nine to make quads. Luft dropped to his knees with his elbows on the table as he stared upward, stunned. The {7-Spades} completed the board and just like that Luft found renewed tournament life. He now has about 300,000 in chips while Mandic's stack has dropped to 340,000.

Tournament Paused

Nível 16 : 2,500/5,000, 500 ante

The tournament has now been paused for over five minutes with all the dealers standing once their tables' hands are complete so that hand-for-hand play can begin.

Unfortunately a dealer in the Orange section began dealing another hand, and once that issue is resolved, hand-for-hand play shall be underway.

Herm Hooks Habib

After a player opened for 11,000 and Hasan Habib called, Mark Herm three-bet to 41,000. The original raiser folded, and then Habib called to see a flop of {7-}{5-}{4-}. Herm checked, Habib moved all in for his last 80,000 or so, and Herm snap-called.

Habib: {j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}
Herm: {4-}{4-}

Habib had the best of it preflop, but Herm flopped a set to take a massive lead in the hand. The {8-} turn meant Habib could chop with a six and still win with a jack, but neither card came as a {10-} blanked on the river.

Meanwhile, Malachy Hagan has also been eliminated from the tournament.

The Chip Lead Belongs to Dan Smith

Nível 16 : 2,500/5,000, 500 ante
Dan Smith
Dan Smith

We just witnessed an enormous pot over on Table 365 in the Amazon Orange section a few spots away from the money.

The action folded around to Stephen Graner in the small blind and he made it 17,500 to go. Dan Smith called from the big blind and the flop came down {2-Spades}{10-Clubs}{4-Hearts}.

Graner bet 25,000 on the flop and Smith made the call in position. The turn brought the {6-Clubs} and Graner bet another 65,000. This time Smith opted to raise it up to 175,000 and Graner went into the tank.

After a while Graner three-bet to 430,000 and this put Smith in the tank for several minutes. Eventually, with all the ESPN cameras rolling, Smith made the call.

The river brought out the {J-Clubs} and Graner paused for about a minute before checking to Smith. Smith started counting down his own stack and about two minutes later he announced, "All in."

Graner sighed.

Graner tanked.

About five minutes went by, as Graner started talking to himself before ultimately letting go of his hand. Graner pushed his cards to the muck and the ESPN production staff was about to grab his cards when Graner freaked out.

"You're not recording my cards! I paid $400 rake to play this tournament, you are not filming my cards!" Graner yelled.

Graner and the member of the production staff got tangled over the cards and eventually the dealer ripped the cards to the side.

"Don't film my cards! It's only Day 4 anyway, so who cares?" a very upset Graner yelled.

"I was going to show, but now I think that's unfair," Dan Smith said as he swiftly put his cards into the muck.

"He mucked his cards! Now you definitely can't show mine!" Graner yelled.

Eventually Graner's cards were mucked and we will never know what either player had. What we do know is that Smith is the chip leader right on the bubble!

Aces Twice For Garcia

Nível 16 : 2,500/5,000, 500 ante

"Don't do it to me dealer!" yelled William Garcia after shoving for about 77,000 from under the gun. The table folded and Garcia tabled {A-Spades}{A-Hearts}.

"Two out of three hands with aces," Garcia told us after the hands. "Didn't want to play any hands but wow!"

Double Clock

Nível 16 : 2,500/5,000, 500 ante

Christos Papulis raised to 11,000 on the button, and Jolmer Meelis went into the tank out of the small blind. The Dutchman — sitting with a stack of 38,500 — tanked for several minutes before the clock was called on him, and he subsequently allowed the clock to expire, killing his hand.

The next player to act was Ryan Tepen with 44,500 left, and he tanked for a long enough time for the clock to be called on him as well. Unlike Meelis, Tepen moved all in with one second remaining on his clock, confusing Papulis.

He tank-folded, and Tepen was pushed the pot.

Ivey Sets the Trap, Keranen Doesn't Bite

Nível 16 : 2,500/5,000, 500 ante

Jing Wang opened to 12,000 from under the gun, Kyle Keranan three-bet to 29,000 from middle position, and action folded over to Phil Ivey in the big blind. He thought it over for a moment before cutting out enough chips for a call and tossed them into the pot. Wang folded, and Keranen and Ivey went to the flop which came {7-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{3-Hearts}.

Ivey checked, Keranen bet 24,000, and Ivey called. Both players then checked the {10-Spades} on the turn, bringing the {K-Spades} on the river. Ivey quickly tapped the table and Keranen checked behind. Ivey rolled over the {K-Clubs}{K-Hearts} for a rivered set, and Keranen stared at the board for a few seconds before mucking his hand.

Daniel Alaei opened with a raise only to have Gaetano Preite three-bet from the small blind to 31,500. When the action came back to Alaei, he moved all in for 182,000 to put Preite to a decision.

Preite tanked for several minutes before eventually folding and slipping to 330,000 as Alaei climbed to 223,000 in chips.
