Katja Gets the First Bad News She Has Had in Hours

Mindy Trinidad and Katja Thater get it all in with {A-Diamonds}{8-Spades} for Mindy, and {6-Clubs}{6-Hearts} for Katja. The flop {10-Hearts}{6-Spades}{3-Hearts} puts Katja WAY ahead with a set of sixes, but the turn {9-Spades} brings some outs for Trinidad. Mindy can double through Katja with a seven. and indeed the {7-Hearts} comes on the river to save Mindy from elimination. Katja Thater goes backwards for the first time in a long time.

Interesting Play From the One Seat

Randi Calabro hasn't played many pots. So, it could have been a sign when she moved from early position. Vanessa Selbst must have thought Randi was on a move, cause she re-raised with a A-7. Unfortunately, Calabro had {a-Spades} {Q-Clubs}, and had Selbst crushed. The board brought an ace, but no seven, and Randi Calabro doubled up through Selbst, who may be tilting a little.

We Gotta Get Out of This Place...

Not a lot of action, and the players are playing with as much hesitation as this reporter has ever seen at a WSOP final table. The players are playing right into Katja's hands. No one is contesting her, and she can wait to pick good spots to play big pots in.

Missing: Chip Leader

Its been easily an hour since our chip leader entering the day, Frauke Ritter Von Sporschill has played a hand of any significance. Since taking a bad beat on an A-K vs A-K hand early on - Frauke has been virtually silent. She is still third in chips, but like the rest of the table is a far cry from Katja's monster stack.

How do you say “Table Captain” in German?

Katja is starting to dominate the table, and seems in complete control. Katja doesn’t sit at the table, she sits on her legs, which makes her sit up a little higher than the other players at the table, as well as making her look like a tiger waiting to pounce, which is exactly how she is playing.
