Hand #114

Patrick Silvey open shoved for about 150,000 and was called by Arthur Vea in the blinds.

Silvey: {A-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}
Vea: {8-Hearts}{8-Clubs}

The flop fell {K-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} giving Vea a set of eights, but Silvey held the only diamond.

Silvey and his rail must be tired, because when the {A-Spades} turned they all thought he was ahead. The {10-Spades} was dealt on the river and finally Silvey realized Vea flopped a set.

What Silvey can be sure of is that he’ll receive $15,677 for his 5th place finish when he visits the cage here at the Rio.

Hand #108

Kent Washington reached his second ever World Series of Poker Final Table this evening, but he was unable to win a coveted bracelet.

Washington was very short when he moved all-in with {K-Hearts}{10-Spades} and was called by Christopher Reider who held {Q-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} in the big blind.

The {5-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{J-Spades} have Reider a pair of sevens and the best hand, sending Washington to the rail in 6th place. He won't leave empty handed though, Washington will receive $11,829 for his efforts.

Can we say free-rolling in the Main Event?

Hand #103 - Arthur Vea

Arthur Vea has been on a roller coaster at the final table, and this hand was one of his ups.

Vea open-shoved 200,000 on the button and was snapped off by Hoai Pham in the big blind. The hands were tabled:

Vea: {A-Spades}{10-Hearts}
Pham: {K-}{K-}

The {5-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts} flop kept Vea alive, and the {10-Clubs} on the turn shot him in to the lead.

Pham threw his hands in the air in disgust and found no help from the {J-Clubs} on the river.

With a little bit of luck Vea doubled to about 400,000 chips.
