Last Hand of the Night

[user22113]
On the last hand of the night, on the only table with a hand still in progress, Kenneth Anderson was eliminated. Kenneth pushed with A-Q from the SB facing a raise from the UTG player, Andreas Hagen. Hagen eventually called with pocket sevens.

The flop came A-2-4 but the turn was the {7-Hearts} and Kenneth's night, and tournament, are over.

Andreas said he only called because, while making his decision, they made an announcement about the 2-7 Triple Draw tournament that is also running. "As soon as I heard the word seven over the loudspeaker, I made up my mind and called."

Tom McEvoy Triples Up

Tom moved all in from late position for his last 5,800. The button and BB called, and Tom holding two clubs, including the ace, flopped the nuts when {K-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{8-Clubs} came out.

The Grinder is Gone

[user22113]
After being one of our chip leaders for most of the day, Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi has been eliminated in 155th position.

Kevin Hildebrand from Cincinnati, Ohio found aces on the button and raised Mizrachi's big blind; the Grinder called. The flop came nine high and holding J-9, The Grinder moved all in. Kevin called and the turn and river proved no help for Mizrachi.

Redlin Takes a Bad Beat

gsqwared
David Redlin, who has been one of our top stacks for much of the day, took a nasty bad beat when he got all in with pocket kings against {K-Hearts}{10-Hearts} on a flop of {5-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}.

The turn brought a disastrous {10-Spades} for Redlin, who let out a frustrated "No!" as he went from top dog to underdog in a split second.

The loss hurt Redlin, but he's still in decent shape with right around 78,000 chips.

Eugene Todd Wins a Monster Pot

gsqwared
Eugene Todd came in for a raise from middle position and the action folded around to the small blind, who pushed all in for 21,800.

Todd went into the tank for quite some time before the clock was called on him. Typically, when a player uses the entire clock they either end up mucking their hand, or have it declared dead by the floorperson. Todd, however, waited until the last second and made the call, showing {5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}; his opponent turned over {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}.

Todd would get the best of this coin flip, as the board filled out {3-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{3-Hearts}. After the hand, Todd's chip stack stood right around 150,000.

The players are back and the cards are in the air.

Tilly Doubles Before the Break

gsqwared
Jennifer Tilly moved all in preflop for her last 13,500 chips. She was called by the big blind, who showed {3-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}; Tilly flipped over {A-Spades}{J-Hearts}.

Coincidentally, actress Tilly flopped a Broadway straight, and her opponent was drawing dead by the turn.

After the hand, Tilly stacked up 30,000 chips.
