Mike Sowers pushed all in from the button for 1.55 million and got a fairly quick call from Fabian Quoss in the big blind.

Sowers:{Q-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}
Quoss {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}

The race didn't last long as Quoss flopped a set with the {2-Hearts}{6-Spades}{8-Spades}. The hand was over when the turn brought the {K-Spades} and the river was a meaningless {2-Spades}.

Sowers left in fourth place and earned $194,931 while Quoss solidified his chip lead and now sits on a stack of 6.4 million.

Quoss the Bully

[user67765]
Thomas Keller raised it up to 210,000 from the button with chip leader Fabian Quoss moving all in from the small blind. A huge overbet by Quoss as he starts to bully the table with his big stack, but it got the desired result as Keller let his hand go.

Fabian Quoss - 4,570,000
Thomas Keller - 2,025,000

Sowers Wins a Small Pot

[user108095]
When Mike Sowers limped into the pot from the small blind, Thomas Keller checked his option and we saw a flop of {K-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}{7-Clubs}

Sowers then check-called Keller's 60,000 bet, and both players checked the {10-Diamonds} on the turn. When the river brought the {3-Hearts}, Sowers took the lead betting 105,000 and Keller folded.

Lemke Wins Blind Battle

[user67765]
In a battle of the blinds, Fabian Quoss limped from the small blind and Brian Lemke checked his option in the big blind.

The board of {3-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{5-Hearts} was checked to the turn where Quoss fired 100,000. Lemke made the call and the {10-Spades} hit the river. Quoss checked and then called the 150,000 bet from Lemke.

Lemke tabled {K-Spades}{J-Hearts} for a pair of kings to take it down.

Kicker Problems Leave a Sowers Taste

[user108095]
Mike Sowers raised to 155,000 from the button and got called by Fabian Quoss in the big blind.

Both players checked the flop of {5-Clubs}{K-Spades}{A-Diamonds} and the turn of {9-Diamonds}. When Quoss checked the {2-Hearts} on the river, Sowers bet 180,000 and Quoss called, turning over {K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts} and out-kicking Sowers' {K-Clubs}{7-Spades}

The board ran out {6-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{9-Spades}{8-Spades}{3-Hearts} and the tens of Quoss hold up to end the courageous tournament of Gerasimova in 5th place. She'll collect an impressive $142,688 for a tremendous tournament.

Sowers More Than Doubles

In a hand where Brian Lemke open raised to 165,000 from the cutoff and Mike Sowers moved all in for 905,000 from the button, Lika Gerasimova re-shoved for nearly 1.1 million. When Lemke folded, the hands were shown.

Gerasimova: {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}
Sowers {8-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}

When the flop came {5-Spades}{4-Hearts}{8-Spades}, Sowers took the lead, but still had a sweat when the turn brought a flush draw with the {9-Spades}. The {6-Diamonds} ended the drama though as Sowers chipped up to nearly 2 million while Gerasimova was left with just 180,000.

Three-Way Action is Good for Keller

[user108095]
Lika Gerasimova raised to 160,000 from under the gun and got called by Brian Lemke on the button and Thomas Keller in the big blind.

When the flop came {5-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}{6-Clubs}, Keller bet 350,000 and pushed both Gerasimova and Lemke out of the hand.
