[Removed:326] Picks Up a Pot

After Chad Batista raised with pocket sixes, [Removed:326] re-raised with pocket Aces and Theo Tran called with {9-Clubs}{6-Clubs}. The {2-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{A-Clubs} flop gave [Removed:327] a set, but it didn’t get him any action as the betting was checked around. The {9-Hearts} hit on the turn and [Removed:327] ventured a 160K bet, but both Batista and Tran wisely folded.

So They Aren't Cursed

The third time was the charm today for pocket Tens. Shawn Luman raised to 80K and Isaac Haxton re-raised to 200,000. Luman moved in with {10-Clubs}{10-Spades}, and Haxton called with {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds}. That’s the very same confrontation that sent Arnold Spee out of today’s event, but this time the board read {6-Hearts}{J-Spades}{8-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}. Luman doubled up to 770,000, while Haxton’s stack fell to the exact same amount.

Arnold Spee Is Eliminated in 8th Place

Today might not be the day to play those pocket Tens. After Spee raised with {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} Isaac Haxton raised 200K more with {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds}. Spee moved in, Haxton called, and the race was on.

The {4-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} flop put Haxton firmly in the lead and the {2-Clubs} and {4-Hearts} on the turn and river brought an end to Spee's day. He wins $80,665 for his eighth-place finish.

Sorry for the delay in reporting, temporary technical difficulties.

Thierry Cazals Is Eliminated in 9th Place

After Shawn Luman raised Theo Tran, holding {J-Hearts}{J-Spades}, re-raised. Thierry Cazals made it another 100K to go with {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} and after Luman folded, Tran moved all-in. Cazals made the call, saw his predicament, and the {4-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{A-Hearts} board did not help. As the first elimination of the day Cazals collects $72,599.

Chad Batista Doubles Up

Yesterday Isaac Haxton got the better of Chad Batista, hitting 2-outers twice to stave off elimination. But this time the better hand held up for Batista, as he moved all in with {A-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} after Haxton raised with {A-Spades}{J-Spades}. Haxton though a bit before making the call and when Chad saw Isaac's cards he jumped out of his chair in disbelief. "Ace-Jack??" Batista said, perhaps remembering the bad beats from the day before.

But that was then, this is now, and the {6-Clubs}{A-Hearts}{3-Spades}{9-Clubs}{5-Hearts} board doubled Batista up at Haxton's expense.
