Barbara Garrett Breathes a Sigh of Relief

Barbara Garrett's heart nearly burst out of her chest when she looked down at A-A during the final hand. She moved her short stack all in, and survived the hand, increasing her stack to 13,000.

Now 271

We're down to 271 players. One left before we're done.

Moneymaker Loses Some . . . Well, You Know

An early position player raises to 3,500. The cutoff calls and Chris Moneymaker in the small blind raises to 13,500. The cutoff calls again. The flop is {4-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}. Moneymaker bets 10,000 and the cutoff raises to 30,000. Moneymaker seems angry with himself and thinks for awhile before folding.

A Fair Play?

A player in middle position raises to 4,000 and Ryan Fair on the button makes it 12,000. The opponent calls. The flop is {A-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs} and the opponent shoves for 22,000. Fair calls and shows {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds} for three aces to his opponent's {9-Clubs}{9-Spades}. The board finishes {K-Hearts}{6-Hearts} for the boat. Fair is up to 80,000.

Delainey Blakeney Out

Delainey Blakeney's opponent limps in late position. Blakeney makes it 8,000 on the button and her opponent re-raises all in. Blakeney calls and shows A-K to her opponent's 4-4. The board starts out well but finishes badly for Blakeney: K-Q-5-4-10. She is out. And on her birthday!
