Tehan Loses a Monster to Terrence Chan

Shortly after the tournament staff made the announcement that all remaining players were in the money, Joe Tehan lost a huge pot to Terrence Chan.

Chan made it 3,600 to go before the flop holding pocket queens. Tehan reraised to 7,500, after which Chan bumped it up again to 21,000.

Tehan immediately said, "All in," sending Chan into the tank. After running the math in his head, Chan made the call and was pleased to see Tehan turn over pocket fives.

The board came jack high, and Chan's queens held up, earning him the pot and the chip lead; he now has over 200,000 chips.

Tehan dropped to 60,000 on the hand.

Garland Walters Pops the Bubble

Facing a very large all-in bet, on a flop of {7-Spades}{2-Hearts}{6-Spades}, Garland Walters counted and recounted his chips before finally making the call with {A-Spades}{5-Spades}.

His opponent, facing potential elimination, reluctantly flips over a pair of jacks and has to sweat out two more cards.

The turn brought the {7-Diamonds} and you could practically hear the surrounding players thinking out loud, hoping for an ace or a spade on the river. Sure enough, the {A-Diamonds} fell on the river and the bubble player graciously shook Garland's hand before walking out of the tournament area.

One More Elimination Left

We lost one of the two players needed to reach the money. We're still hand-for-hand with one more elimination to go.

Greenstein Forces a Bubble Decision

Barry Greenstein
Playing hand-for-hand with only two players left before the money, Barry Greenstein and his opponent are heads-up with a flop of {K-Spades}{7-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}. Greenstein, in the big blind, bets 4,000 and makes it 8,000 to go. Without hesitation, Greenstein reraises to 27,000. His opponent goes into the tank and eventually folds the hand.

After the fold, Greenstein shows {9-Clubs}{6-Clubs} and smiles.

Nam Le Survives a Scare

Down to his last 10,400, Nam Le moved all in over the top of another player's all-in. The big blind considered making the call, but eventually mucked and revealed pocket jacks.

Nam turned over {10-Spades}{10-Clubs} and was in good shape against his opponent's {J-Spades}{7-Clubs}. The board came {A-Hearts}{5-Spades}{2-Spades}, increasing Le's stronghold on the hand. The {10-Hearts} on the turn cemented the pot for Nam, who eliminated his opponent from the tournament.

For dramatic effect, the {J-Diamonds} fell on the river, while everyone watching let out a collective "Ooooh!" as the big blind would've made the best hand on the river, had he called the preflop bets.

Nam Le now has almost 20,000 chips; the pot significantly improved his chances of making the money.
