"pay4medsch00l" Wins partypoker US Network Online Series Phase ($13,597.50)


On Sunday night, the partypoker US Online Network PKO Series wrapped with the conclusion of the Phase Multi-Flight $75,000 GTD Main Event. Players had qualified all week long via $35 buy-in qualifier flights, and there was to be a $320 direct buy option for Day 2. However, a software glitch at the start prevented the expected late registration period, meaning only 79 players got in.

By the time the error was discovered, play was well underway, so the partypoker US officials opted to continue the tournament as was, and given there was only $27,604 in collected buy-ins, those players enjoyed a juicy overlay thanks to the $75,000 guarantee. Not only that, because the usual payout structure remained in place, everyone in the tournament received a minimum payout of $218.

After six and a half hours of six-handed play, "pay4medsch00l" emerged victorious to claim the title and $13,597.50 first-place prize.

Others to cash the tournament were "monge" (7th - $2,363), Brian "TopCreature" Sherrier (9th - $1,275), "Allyoucaneat" (17th - $660), BorgataPoker.com Ambassador Michael "Gags30" Gagliano (22nd - $488), Clayton "claytonfletcher" Fletcher (25th - $413), Mike "MistaMenzer" Menzer (45th - $300), Ryan "Whosyourdoddy" Dodd (52nd - $270), and Daniel "leinad" Buzgon (68th - $233).

At the final table, "pay4medsch00l" got to work with five left, which is when they picked up two black nines and held against ace-eight suited to send Anthony "Flawlessbinkage" Maio out the door. "pay4medsch00l" then began using the big stack to their advantage by moving all-in frequently to put the smaller stack to big ICM decisions. Eventually "IReadYrSoul" dispatched "ELITEMALESSO" in fourth place, and then "pay4medsch00l" woke up with aces to eliminate "IReadYrSoul," who check-jammed after flopping middle pair.

"pay4medsch00l" began heads-up play with a big lead and closed it out after calling "Ozzy_Rocks111's" three-barrel bluff.

"Ozzy_Rocks111" Eliminated in 2nd Place ($10,125)


In what would be the final hand of the tournament, which took place in Level 30 (200,000/400,000/50,000), there was 3.3 million in the pot and a flop of {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}{6-Clubs} when "pay4medsch00l" check-called a bet of 612,000 from "Ozzy_Rocks111."

On the {q-Hearts} turn, "pay4medsch00l" check-called one of 1.6 million and then checked for the third time on the {3-Diamonds} river.

"Ozzy_Rocks111" responded by moving all in for 3,833,398 and "pay4mysch00l" called with a six down for aces and sixes. It was good as "Ozzy_Rocks111" showed the {8-}{7-} bluff before bowing out in second place.

"IReadYrSoul" Eliminated in 3rd Place ($7,125)


Despite starting three-handed play with the chip lead, "IReadYrSoul" lost a series of pots to fall to the short stack.

Then, in Level 30 (200,000/400,000/50,000), "pay4medsch00l" raised the button to 400,000 and "IReadYrSoul" defended the big blind to see a {2-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} flop. "IReadYrSoul" checked, "pay4medsch00l" bet 643,500, and "IReadYrSoul" check-jammed for 3.4 million. "pay4medsch00l" called and the hands were turned up.

"IReadYrSoul": {6-Spades}{q-Spades}
"pay4medsch00l": {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}

"IReadYrSoul" had flopped middle pair but was behind the pocket rockets of "pay4medsch00l." Neither the {k-Clubs} turn nor {k-Hearts} river helped "IReadYrSoul" and they were ousted in third place.

In Level 26 (120,000/240,000/30,000), Anthony “Flawlessbinkage” Maio moved all in for 1,313,808 from the cutoff and "pay4medsch00l" called from the button. Both blinds folded and the hands were turned up.

Anthony “Flawlessbinkage” Maio: {a-Clubs}{8-Clubs}
"pay4medsch00l": {9-Clubs}{9-Spades}

the {8-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} flop gave "pay4medsch00l" top set and Maio was drawing dead after the {3-Spades} peeled off on the turn. The meaningless {q-Diamonds} was run out on the river and Maio bowed out of the tournament in fifth place.

"monge" Eliminated in 7th Place ($2,362.50)


It took awhile for the final table bubble to burst, but it finally happened when "monge" lost back-to-back hands in Level 25 (100,000/200,000/25,000).

In the first, "monge" raised the button to 600,000 and called when "pay4medsch00l" three-bet all in for 2,316,748.

"pay4medsch00l": {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}
"monge": {a-Hearts}{j-Hearts}

It was a flip and "pay4medsch00l" held after the board ran out a lowly {4-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}.

In the very next hand, "pay4medsch00l" raised to 400,000 from the button and called when "monge" three-bet all in for 950,352 from the big blind.

"monge": {10-Spades}{j-Diamonds}
"pay4medsch00l": {j-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}

"monge" was in a dominating position but disaster struck when the {9-Spades}{j-Spades}{6-Clubs} flop delivered "pay4medsch00l" two pair. The {6-Diamonds} turn and {a-Clubs} river were bricks for "monge" and just like that the final table was set.
