$100,000 Super High Roller

Gruissem vs. Seiver

Scott Seiver limped from the small blind holding {10-Hearts}{4-Hearts} and Philipp Gruissem checked his option from the big blind with {J-Clubs}{7-Clubs}. Seiver then check-called a bet of 75,000 on the {7-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{6-Spades}, but opted to check-fold his lowly pair of fours to Gruissem's 160,000 bet on the {2-Diamonds} river.

Gruissem Can't Hero Call

• Level 18: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Philipp Gruissem opened to 110,000 with {q-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} from under the gun, Scott Seiver defended his big blind with unknown cards, and the flop fell {k-Spades}{6-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}. Both players checked.

The turn was the {8-Diamonds}, the two checked again, and the river was the {6-Spades}. Seiver led for 160,000, and Gruissem tank-folded.

Seiver showed his cards after the hand, and he had {9-Hearts}{2-Hearts}.

Seiver Shoves On Gruissem

Action folded to Scott Seiver in the small blind and he just limped with {5-Clubs}{5-Spades}. Germany's Philipp Gruissem was in the big blind and opted to three-bet to 150,000, which inspired Seiver to simply move all in. Gruissem quickly folded and Seiver took down the pot.

Katz Doubles

Cary Katz, after jamming from the small blind with kings, woke up with {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts} on the button the next hand. He raised to 90,00 on the button, Nick Schulman three-bet jammed for effectively 565,000 from the big blind with {a-Spades}{8-Diamonds}, and Katz snapped it off.

Schulman shook his head unhappily at the sight of Katz's hand.

"This is my first aces of the event," Katz announced.

The {j-Spades}{10-Clubs}{6-Clubs} flop fell, giving Schulman a few backdoor draws, and the turn was the {7-Spades}, keeping the straight draw alive.

The {5-Spades} bricked on the river though, and Katz doubled.

Greg Jensen Eliminated in 6th Place ($286,200)

Greg Jensen
Greg Jensen

Greg Jensen is quite the successful hedge fund CEO, and it was a surprising, and incredibly kind gesture, when he informed everyone that he was donating all of his winnings to the victims of the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. Jensen's generosity will see $286,200 donated, the prize he earned for finishing in sixth place.

His demise came after Nick Schulman opened for 80,000 on the button and Jensen shoved all in for 710,000 from the small blind. The big got out of the way and Schulman snap-called.

Showdown
Jensen: {A-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}
Schulman: {K-Clubs}{K-Hearts}

It was a bad spot for Jensen, and he had just a 29% of keeping his tournament hopes alive. Unfortunately for him, that percentage only went down as the board ran out {3-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{4-Hearts}{5-Spades}. With that, the amateur who played the $100K on a whim was eliminated from the tournament.

Vladimir Troyanovsky Eliminated in 7th Place ($257,580)

Vladimir Troyanovsky - 7th
Vladimir Troyanovsky - 7th

Vladimir Troyanovsky open-shoved for 485,000 from late position with {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}, and Nick Schulmann snapped it off with {a-Spades}{a-Hearts} in the big blind.

The {a-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{6-Spades} flop put Troyanovsky in bad shape, and it was all over after the {7-Spades} turned.

A meaningless {3-Clubs} completed the board, and Troyanovsky was eliminated in seventh place.
