Wood Doubles Through Lacourse

The button is with Jerry Yamachika in Seat 9. The action passes to Dale Eberle who min-raised to 60,000 before Dan Lacourse made it 160,000 to go from the cutoff position. It folded to Charles Wood who made the call for his last 120,000 chips in the big blind as Eberle stepped aside.

Wood: {K-Clubs}{10-Hearts}
Lacourse: {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}

The flop was a good one for Wood as it arrived {A-Spades}{5-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} to give Wood additional straight outs. The turn also improved his chances as the {Q-Spades} gave Wood outs to counterfeit Lacourse’s pair. However he didn’t need them as the {K-Diamonds} on the river sealed the deal and gave Wood a double up as his entourage cheered from the rail! Wood is now up to about 260,000 chips.

Jerry Yamachika Doubles Up

Dan Lacourse was on the button. Charles Wood raised under the gun to 125,000. Action was folded around to Jerry Yamachika, who reraised all in for 508,000 total. Charles Wood said call, but the action was not on him. Marc Fluss was still yet to act. Fluss thinks for a couple of minutes and then folds. Wood still called Yamachika's all in.

Yamachika: {J-Diamonds} {J-Clubs}
Wood: {10-Spades} {10-Hearts}

Board: {K-Hearts} {4-Spades} {8-Diamonds} {4-Diamonds} {3-Diamonds}

When the river card hit, Fluss jumped out of his seat as if he would have won the hand.

After the hand, Yamachika moved up to third in chips to 1,074,000.

Lacourse Does It With Reraise

The button is with Dale Eberle in Seat 6. The action folded around to Fred Berger in the small blind who announced a raise to 90,000 total. Dan Lacourse then declared a reraise to 300,000 in total. Berger thought for a moment before laying down his hand to give the pot to Lacourse.

Marty Wilson Eliminated in 9th Place ($34,312)

Marty Wilson - 9th Place
Marty Wilson - 9th Place
The button was with Ed Clark in Seat 3. Fred Berger raised to 90,000 and it was folded around to Marty Wilson who moved all in for 439,000 total. Berger then went into the tank. A call would involve most of his chips. He sat for about five minutes cutting chips and thinking about the call. Finally he made the call.

Wilson: {8-Hearts} {8-Diamonds}
Berger: {A-Hearts} {Q-Clubs}

A classic race situation was presenting itself. The flop crushed Wilson when the {Q-Hearts} {Q-Diamonds} {K-Hearts} hit the flop. Only one of the remaining eights would win the hand for Wilson. No help came for Wilson as the turn fell the {J-Hearts} and the river came the {7-Spades}.

Marty Wilson becomes our 9th place finisher and will receive $34,312.
