Gary Styczynski Wins Another Pot

Gary Styczynski just picked up another pot on a board of {J-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{3-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}. He bet the river, and Gumroyan folded. Here were the holecards:

Gumroyan: {Q-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}
Styczynski: {10-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}

Styczynski continues to increase his lead.

Gary Styczynski Increases His Lead

Gary Styczynski turns a pair of nines, while Varouzhan Gumroyan rivers a pair of eights. It's enough for Gumroyan to call a bet, and Styczynski extends his lead.

Approximate Chip Counts

Here are the approximate chip counts for heads-up play:

Gary Styczynski - 1.375 million
Varouzhan Gumroyan - 1.325 million

Hansu Chu Eliminated in 3rd Place ($114,278)

Gumroyan raises to 80,000, and Chu calls all in with {A-Hearts}{3-Spades}. Gumroyan shows {A-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}, and Chu will need to improve to stay alive.

The flop comes {Q-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}, and Gumroyan extends his lead with a pair of tens. Chu needs running threes to survive.

The turn card is the {8-Hearts}, and Gumroyan clinches the pot. (The meaningless river card is the {2-Diamonds}.)

Hansu Chu is eliminated in third place, earning $114,278.

Hansu Chu Loses More Chips

Hansu Chu raises to 80,000, and Styczynski calls from the big blind. The flop comes {5-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{2-Clubs}, and both players check. The turn card is the {2-Diamonds}, and they check again. The river card is the {K-Diamonds}, Chu checks, Styczynski bets 80,000, and Chu folds. Styczynski takes the pot.

The holecams reveal their hands:

Chu: {10-Hearts}{6-Spades}
Styczynski: {10-Spades}{4-Diamonds}

Blinds Increase

The blinds increase to 20,000-40,000, with limits of 40,000-80,000.

Soheil Shamseddin Eliminated in 4th Place ($75,771)

On a final board of {K-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{A-Spades}, Soheil Shamseddin was all in against Gary Styczynski after some betting along the way. They showed:

Shamseddin: {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs} for two pair
Styczynski: {Q-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} for an ace-high straight

Styczynski missed his flush draw, but rivered the nuts to win the pot. Soheil Shamseddin was eliminated in fourth place, earning $75,711. The next player eliminated will receive $114,278 for third place.

James Gorham Eliminated in 5th Place ($53,412)

With the board showing {2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{J-Hearts} on the turn, James Gorham is all in with {A-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} against Gary Styczynski's {J-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} -- a full house. Gorham must spike an ace or a deuce on the river to stay alive, but the last card is the {9-Hearts}.

James Gorham is eliminated in fifth place, earning $53,412. The next player eliminated will receive $75,711 for fourth place.
