HillKerby • Level 28: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante
Orlando Romero
Orlando Romero

Brandon Lombardo saw action fold to him in the small blind and went all in for 2.7 million. Orlando Romero quickly called in the big blind.

Orlando Romero: {k-Clubs}{k-Hearts}
Brandon Lombardo: {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}

Unfortunately for Romero and much to Lombardo's delight, an ace came on the turn as the board ran out {6-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{a-Clubs}{3-Clubs} to result in Lombardo hitting a much-needed three outer to win the pot. Stacks were counted afterwards, Romero's was totaled to be 2.13 million, and he wound up finishing in 10th place as a result.

Larson Stays Alive

HillKerby • Level 28: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante

David Larson, who folded his way down to 20,000 at one point within the last two hours has found a way to stay alive time and again. Just recently, he called off his remaining 315,000 in the big blind after action folded to Benjamin Craig in the small blind and Craig put him all in.

David Larson: {a-Spades}{8-Diamonds}
Benjamin Craig: {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}

The flop {2-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{j-Clubs} looked like it may be the end for Larson. The turn {7-Hearts} gave him chop outs, but he wouldn't need them as the river {8-Hearts} came to give him the best hand and score him the double.

Jason Seitz
Jason Seitz

Jason Seitz saw action fold to him in the cutoff and jammed for about 580,000. Mike Shin looked down at his cards in the big blind when it became his turn to do so and quickly announced a call as he tabled his hand.

Jason Seitz: {a-Spades}{6-Diamonds}
Mike Shin: {a-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}

Seitz was in trouble and the flop {9-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{2-Spades} did little more than bring him backdoor straight outs. The turn {8-Clubs} gave him more outs to a chop, but they missed on the river {4-Diamonds} and he was eliminated by Shin in 14th place as a result.
