Lombardo Fires Twice

HillKerby • Level 33: 125,000-250,000, 250,000 ante

Brandon Lombardo raised to 600,000 on the button and was called by Landon Tice, who defended his big blind. The flop was {k-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{k-Spades} and Tice check-called a continuation-bet of 500,000 from Lombardo.

The turn came {j-Diamonds} and Tice checked once more. Lombardo fired a second barrel for 900,000 and Tice helicoptered his cards to the center of the table for Lombardo to take down the pot.

Landon Tice opened the action with a raise to 600,000 in the small blind to put action onto Jesse Vilchez, who defended his big blind. Action checked through to the river on a board of {7-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{j-Hearts}, where Tice threw out a bet of 400,000.

Vilchez thought for about a minute and then pumped it up to 1.2 million, sending action back Tice's way. Tice three-bet all in, putting Vilchez to a decision for his remaining 4 million or so, and Vilchez went into the tank for about a minute before committing what was left.

Tice showed {10-Spades}{7-Hearts} and Vilchez sent his cards to the muck, where they were neither retrieved nor exposed. Vilchez earned $91,502 for his third-place finish, while Landon Tice and Brandon Lombardo are now set to play heads up for the title.

The tournament clock has been paused and the two remaining players are taking a short break as chips are colored up before the match gets underway.

Tice Keeps Climbing

HillKerby • Level 32: 100,000-200,000, 200,000 ante

Landon Tice raised it up to 425,000 on the button and was called by Brandon Lombardo, who defended his big blind. Both players checked through the flop {j-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{4-Diamonds} and the turn came {8-Hearts}. Lombardo checked again and Tice fired out a bet of 650,000. Lombardo called.

The river was {3-Clubs}. Lombardo checked to Tice, who counted out a bet and set it onto the table. Lombardo asked how much.

"One-point-five (million)," said Tice. Lombardo took another five seconds or so to call.

Tice quickly and confidently flipped over {a-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} and Tice flashed him his cards to Tice, mentioning that the turn cost him once more before sending them face down into the muck.

Moments later, the pair were involved in a raising war preflop that saw Tice take another handful of big blinds off of Lombardo when the latter of the two blinked first and folded.

Sara Stohler opened the action with a raise to 500,000 in the cutoff and action folded around to Landon Tice, who checked to see how much Stohler had behind. Stohler told her 2.5 million, and then counted out 2.7 million and some change. Tice called.

The flop dropped {4-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{2-Hearts} and Tice checked. Stohler immediately pushed the rest of her chips into the middle and Tice called just as quickly.

Sara Stohler: {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}
Landon Tice: {a-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}

Stohler saw the bad news and asked the dealer for some help: "A nine would be nice," she said. Unfortunately for her, no such card came as the turn {q-Clubs} and river {6-Spades} completed the runout to end her bid in fourth place for a payday of $62,091.

Stohler Sees a Favorable Runout To Double

HillKerby • Level 31: 80,000-160,000, 160,000 ante

Action folded to Landon Tice in the small blind and he completed. Sara Stohler checked her option and the two went to a flop of {10-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{5-Hearts}. Tice bet 160,000 and Stohler shoved all in for 1.62 million, with Tice quickly making the call.

Sara Stohler: {9-Diamonds}{7-Spades}
Landon Tice: {q-Hearts}{2-Hearts}

Stohler found herself with the best hand but needed to fade hearts and queens to stay alive. The turn came {10-Clubs} and the river fell behind it {9-Hearts}, giving Tice a flush but also improving Stohler to a full house to earn her the double.
