Frauke Ritter Von Sporschill, as nice as she is -- I'm not going to lie to you, I'm happy I don't have to write that name again tonight -- is out in sixth place. Frauke moved in with , and got picked off by Anne Heft, who woke up with . No ace, no draws, and no help came for Frauke, who came all the way from Germany just to play in this tournament, was out in sixth place. Frauke can fly back to Germany and tell her friends that she was the chip leader entering the final table at the women's event of the WSOP, and then buy them many Steins of beer with the $37,448 she won for sixth place.
After seeing a flop blind on blind, Sally Boyer leads at the pot after making third pair with on a flop of . Frauke puts the rest of her small stack in with an open-ended straight draw, and Sally makes the call. The turn leaves Frauke with eight outs, and when the hits on the river, Frauke jumps up and down over and over with glee at hitting her card. When things calm down, Frauke has doubled through the chip leader, but is still short.
What did we say two hours ago? It works every time but the last, and the sixth time was not the charm for Mindy Trinidad, as she chose to push with under the gun, and was called by Randi Calabro with . The flop brought some help for Mindy, but the turn and river brought no further help, and "All In Mindy" was all out. Mindy spoke more than anyone at the final table, so now we have a tight AND quiet final table to look forward to. Mindy won $28,086 for her pushing.
With no action for almost three hours, we have had some serious action in the last few minutes...much of it at the expense of Katja Thater. Katja just ran into an unfortunate situation when she opened with for 100k, and was re-raised all in by the next-closest to her in chips. Sally Anne Boyer (who has played just four pots in three hours) moved in for 343,000 total. Thater tanked for a good two minutes, but made the call. Boyer flipped up , and for the first time in hours, Thater's dominance was at risk.
The board never gives Katja a chance except the two tens, and for the first time in hours, we have a new chip leader in Sally Anne Boyer.
