Guifang Liu Four-Bet Shoves Jacks to Bust

Nível 29 : 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Kent Coppock opened from under the gun and John Hanna in the small blind responded with a three-bet to 540,000. Guifang Liu in the big blind then moved all in for just under 1,700,000 and with Coppock having a quick think before folding Hanna made the call.

John Hanna: {q-Clubs}{q-Hearts}
Guifang Liu: {j-Diamonds}{j-Spades}.

The board ran out {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}.

The stacks were counted and Hanna did indeed have Liu covered, sending the latter to the exits.

Chad Davis is Out

Nível 29 : 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Ralph Massey opened the action and both Kent Coppock and Chad Davis moved all-in. Massey folded to let the other two players fight it out.

Kent Coppock: {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}
Chad Davis: {10-Spades}{9-Clubs}

The flop {J-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{Q-Spades} gave Davis some outs but the {2-Spades} on the turn and the {6-Spades} on the river didn't help in the end.

Anthony Utnage Dominated and Out

Nível 29 : 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Anthony Utnage shoved his short stack in the middle and Tony Sinishtaj, who had him just covered, moved in, too. No other callers, so the cards were on their backs.

Anthony Utnage: {q-Hearts}{9-Hearts}
Tony Sinishtaj: {a-Spades}{q-Hearts}

“If you lose this one it’s not your day,” said Utnage of Sinishtaj’s dominating hand.

The cards ran {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} to bust Utnage.

Early Fireworks; Steven Lauson Triples

Nível 29 : 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Chad Davis, Steven Lauson, and Alex Masek got all the chips in the middle preflop on the very first hand of the day. Masek had the biggest of the three stacks with 1,005,000, Davis had 460,000, and Lauson was the shortest with 380,000.

Masek held the only pocket pair of the bunch with {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}, but had to fade a fistful of overcards since Davis tabled {K-Clubs}{J-Diamonds} and Lauson showed {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}.

The flop fell {10-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{2-Clubs} to give Lauson the nut flush and a near lock on the hand. The {3-Clubs} on the turn gave Davis a king-high flush for the side pot, and although the {8-Clubs} showed up on the river to give Masek a set of eights, it was too little too late. Lauson scooped the main pot to triple and Davis took the side pot but was left with only a single big blind.

Daniel Placencia Early Day 3 Exit

Nível 29 : 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Farid Labib-Kiyarash opened the action and Daniel Placencia moved all in for 855,000. Taylor Black called and it got back to Labib-Kiyarash who thought for a moment or two before folding.

Daniel Placencia: {q-Hearts}{j-Hearts}
Taylor Black: {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}

The board ran out {7-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}.

Placencia picked up the flush draw on the flop, but bricked out to be one of the first eliminations of the day.

A total of 18,054 entries and 9,074 unique players over six starting flights generated a prize pool of $9,027,000 with the eventual winner guaranteed $1,000,000.

Day 2 was a whirlwind of eliminations as the field was scythed down from a starting number of 634 to today’s returning 41 players after 10 one-hour levels of play wrapping up at 3 am.

Raul Martinez Requena from the U.K. is the man out in front as the Day 3 chip leader on 5,270,000, while Erkut Yilmaz sits in second on 5,150,000 with Pojana Jenne currently in third with 4,700,000.
