Chris "rumpthumper" White has just outlasted a field of 57 in the partypoker US Network Online Series Event #5: $15,000 GTD, earning the top prize of $5,625 for his performance. White's victory took just under four-and-a-half hours, culminating with a come-from-behind victory heads-up against "Standoff23".

Earlier this week, White took second place in Event #2, and was able to avenge that for what became his second score of more than $5,000 in a partypoker US Network Online Poker Series Event (his first one came in June's series).

Event #4 Final Table Results

1Chris “rumpthumper” White$5,625
4Michael "miw210x" Wang$1,537
7Ryan “simlSgg” Hagerty$712

Ryan "Whosyourdoddy" Dodd, Alex "JinYang" Butcher, Michael “UFOLDIWIN” St. John, Angel "chromeking" Lopez, and Brian “TopCreature” Sherrier were among those that fell around the time that the registration period ended, and just 14 players remained some 15 minutes later.

Mike "MistaMenza" Menzer, Michael “IIIIIIIIIIIII” Haberman, and Eric "alwaysliquid" Vanauken" were among the next wave of eliminations and brought about the final table. "Doni34" was eliminated in eighth place some 40 minutes later to reach the money, and that number quickly became five after White scored a double knockout with pocket queens to two ace-kings.

Eliminations then occurred steadily, with "Ozzy_Rocks111" busting to eventual third-place finisher "marysgotqueens." White got the next knockout, eliminating Michael "miw210x" Wang in fourth place before "marysgotqueens" lost a coin flilp to "Standoff23" to bow out in third.

"Standoff23" entered heads-up play with around 60% of the chips in play, but quickly saw that lead dissipate as White clawed his way back to even and eventually pulled away. The final hand saw him hold all-in preflop with pocket fives to ace-ten, and all the chips were shipped his way along with a score of more than $5,600.

PokerNews will resume coverage on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. ET with Event #6: $5,000 GTD NLH Freezeout, which features a $215 buy-in and will allow players a maximum of one entry for the event.

"marysgotqueens": {k-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}
"Standoff23": {9-Diamonds}{9-Spades}

The two were in a classic coin flip situation and "marysgotqueens" was unable to hit a king or queen as the runout came {a-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{8-Hearts}{10-Hearts} to leave "Standoff23" on top. As a result, "marysgotqueens" finished in third place and earned $2,062 for their efforts.

Michael "miw210x" Wang: {5-Hearts}{5-Spades}
Chris “rumpthumper” White: {k-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}

Wang Working His Way Back


In Level 21 with blinds of 7,000/14,000 and an ante of 1,750, "marysgotqueens" opened to 42,000 in the small blind and Michael "miw210x" Wang three-bet jammed for 128,000. "marysgotqueens" called.

Michael "miw210x" Wang: {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}
"marysgotqueens": {q-Diamonds}{9-Spades}

Wang found himself way ahead and pulled even further out in front on the flop {6-Spades}{7-Clubs}{k-Spades}. The turn {j-Spades} gave them four outs to fade on the river, and they did so with ease as {k-Clubs} gave them trips en route to a double.

"Ozzy_Rocks111" Eliminated in 5th Place ($1,170)


In Level 21 with blinds of 7,000/14,000 and an ante of 1,750, action was heads up between "Ozzy_Rocks111" in the big blind and "marysgotqueens," who was in the cutoff. Stacks got in on a flop of {2-Hearts}{9-Spades}{10-Hearts} after "Ozzy_Rocks111" check-shoved for their stack and received a quick call.

"Ozzy_Rocks111": {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs}
"marysgotqueens": {a-Hearts}{j-Hearts}

"Ozzy_Rocks111" was ahead but still had 11 cards in the deck that would spell doom. One came on the turn {a-Spades}, leaving them in need of a two outer that never came as the river {2-Spades} completed the runout and resulted in them taking fifth place in the tournament.

Meanwhile, Michael "miw210x" Wang has found a couple of doubles and has chipped up to five big blinds, with a stack of 71,000.
