Christian "Crisper" Pereira Eliminated in 4th Place ($28,105)

mnuwwarah

40,000/80,000 Stud

Christian "Crisper" Pereira completed with the {a-Clubs} and picked up a board full of Broadways three ways on fifth, however everyone checked to see sixth for free.

Pereira: {x-}{x-}/{a-Clubs}{j-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}
Dzmitry "Colisea" Urbanovich: {x-}{x-}/{6-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{j-Hearts}
"RaulGonzalez": {x-}{x-}/{3-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{3-Hearts}

Pereira bet and Urbanovich folded, but RaulGonzalez fired in a raise. Pereira called and then check-called the river, but RaulGonzalez had {3-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{k-Spades} for trips to take the pot.

Left with just over one bet, Pereira busted moments later.

Pereira Survives

mnuwwarah

40,000/80,000 Stud

Christian "Crisper" Pereira two-bet last to act with the {8-Diamonds} when "RaulGonzalez" completed in the cutoff with the {a-Spades} and they got all in on fifth when RaulGonzalez picked up a four-flush.

RaulGonzalez: {8-Spades}{j-Spades}/{a-Spades}{k-Clubs}{3-Spades}
Pereira: {8-Clubs}{q-Clubs}/{8-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{4-Spades}

RaulGonzalez bricked with the {7-Diamonds} but made jacks on the {j-Clubs} river. Pereira improved too, though, hitting the {q-Spades} for winning queens up after he bricked sixth as well.

Urbanovich Caught Bluffing

mnuwwarah

35,000/70,000 Razz

Jens "Fresh_oO_D" Lakemeier opened with a {3-} and Dzmitry "Colisea" Urbanovich two-bet it in the next seat with a {4-}. Lakemeier called and they traded off the lead as they took turns catching back on the next few streets until the river.

Lakemeier: {x-}{x-}/{3-}{8-}{q-}{10-}/{x-}
Urbanovich: {x-}{x-}/{4-}{j-}{7-}{7-}/{x-}

On the end, Lakemeier checked and Urbanovich bet. Lakemeier took some time then called, and Urbanovich showed {5-}{2-}{k-} for a jack-low. Lakemeier had {5-}{2-}{8-} for a ten-low.

"RaulGonzalez" in the Lead After Scooping Lakemeier

mnuwwarah

35,000/70,000 Omaha Hi-Lo

Jens "Fresh_oO_D" Lakemeier opened on the button and called a three-bet from big blind "RaulGonzalez." RaulGonzalez proceeded to bet it down on {6-Hearts}{j-Spades}{10-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}, with Lakemeier calling the whole way.

At showdown, RaulGonzalez produced {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}{5-Hearts}{4-Spades} for a straight and a strong low, enough to take the whole pot.

Action folded to the small blind, where Denis "aDrENalin710" Strebkov raised. "RaulGonzalez" called and {k-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} flopped. Strebkov bet and RaulGonzalez called. The turn was a {7-Hearts} and Strebkov bet again, leaving about 40K behind. That's what he called off when RaulGonzalez raised.

RaulGonzalez: {9-Spades}{2-Spades}
Strebkov: {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts}

Strebkov was unpaired and needed to find an ace or queen, but the river was a useless {4-Diamonds}.
