All In Again

Daniel Negreanu was all in once again, this time for 20,000 from the small blind. All three opponents would come along again, trying to get rid of Kid Poker once and for all.

The board ran {2-Diamonds} {9-Diamonds} {5-Diamonds} {7-Spades} {8-Spades}, and again the three live players checked it all the way down.

Scott Clements tabled the best hand so far, showing {2-Clubs} {4-Diamonds} {7-Diamonds} {8-Hearts} for the diamond flush. The other two opponents couldn't touch that, and now it was on Negreanu to show. Once more, he sweated out his four cards. One by one, he peeled them off. {6-Diamonds}. "Diamond! Halfway there." {A-Spades} followed. Then came the {10-Spades}, a blank. Kid Poker really squeezed out his final card....... "Diamond! And the low! Scoop!" Negreanu slammed the {Q-Diamonds} on the felt, indeed scooping the pot with his big flush and the seventy-six low.

Negreanu won't go away, sitting now with 80,000.

Set of Aces Baby

Ben Boyd raised to be three-bet by Scott Clements. He called to see a {K-Diamonds} {6-Spades} {A-Hearts} flop. Clements bet and was called as he was on the {J-Spades} turn. Clements fired a third bullet on the {10-Clubs} river and Boyd decided to let it go.

Clement showed {A-?} {A-?} for top set on the flop.

Family Pot Looks to Bust Negreanu

Daniel Negreanu was all in before the flop, and all three opponents called him down, creating our first family pot of the evening.

The board ran down {6-Spades} {4-Spades} {J-Clubs} {A-Spades} {J-Diamonds} with the three live players checking it all the way down. Alaei tabled {J-?} {8-?} {6-?} {4-?} for a jacks full. Ben Boyd could do better, showing {A-?} {A-?} {7-?} {5-?} for the nuts, aces full.

Negreanu was still squeezing and sweating his cards. In front of him lay two of his cards, {K-?} {9-?}. He squeezed out a {2-?} and a {3-?}, locking up half of the pot with his nut low and staving off elimination for the time being.

John Monnette Eliminated in 5th Place ($97,422)

John Monnette - 5th Place
John Monnette - 5th Place
Daniel Alaei called, John Monnette was all in for just 15,000 (he managed to triple his 5k the hand before)in the SB and Ben Boyd checked his option. The {4-Diamonds} {A-Spades} {5-Hearts} was checked though before Alaei bet the {6-Diamonds} turn. Boyd called as as he did Alaei's bet on the {J-Clubs} river.

Monnette {10-?} {9-?} {2-?} {2-?}
Alaei {10-?} {7-?} {6-?} {3-?}
Boyd scoops the pot with {2-?} {4-?} {7-?} {8-?} for a straight.

Monnette leaves the arena to applause.


On the last hand, Scott Clements and John Monnette were tangled up on a flop that contained two nines. Monette picked up his last lonely pink T5,000 chip, and Clements tabled his hand, assuming that Monnette was all in. Clements' hand contained a third nine, and when Monnette saw that he was drawing to runner-runner, he folded and saved his last chip.

Negreanu was livid with Clements for potentially costing him a position, as Negreanu is very short on chips as well. In the end, the floor was called over, and it was ruled that Clements must serve a full one-orbit penalty for intentionally exposing his cards.

Alaei Takes a Small One

Scott Clements raised and was called by Daniel Alaei and Ben Boyd before a {9-Hearts} {Q-Spades} {9-Clubs} flop. It was checked by all three as was the {8-Diamonds} turn. The river {9-Diamonds} saw Alaei bet and only Boyd call.

Alaei scooped with {A-?} {6-?} {3-?} {3-?} as Boyd mucked.

Monnette Saved

On the next hand, John Monnette moved his 60,000 chips into the pot preflop. Scott Clements and Daniel Alaei called him down, and they would check it down to the river.

The board came {8-Spades} {5-Spades} {9-Spades} {K-Spades} {J-Clubs}.

Monnette: {A-Hearts} {Q-Clubs} {J-Spades} {9-Diamonds}
Clements: {A-Diamonds} {Q-Hearts} {2-Spades} {2-Diamonds}
Alaei: {9-?} {5-?} {3-?} {3-?}

Monnette had managed to make the winning two pair, scooping up the pot and tripling up to 180,000.

Monnette Very Low

On a flop of {3-Hearts} {5-Diamonds} {8-Spades}, Scott Clements checked to his lone opponent, and John Monnette put out a bet. Clements called.

The turn was the {4-Clubs}, and Clements check-called another bet. The river brought the {2-Spades}. To Monnette's surprise, Clements led out into him, sending the short-stacked player deep into the tank. He had just 60,000 chips left to fight with, and he was facing a decision for his tournament life. After some serious consideration, Monnette elected to let his hand go, choosing to save his chips for a better spot.

Negreanu Slides Down

Daniel Alaei raised from the cutoff seat, and Daniel Negreanu made the call from the big blind.

The board ran out {3-Clubs} {Q-Hearts} {J-Clubs} {9-Hearts} {4-Spades}. Negreanu check-called a bet on the flop, then led out with his own bet on fourth street. Alaei called, then bet fifth street when Negreanu checked. Negreanu considered very carefully before shrugging his shoulders and flicking in the 100,000-chip call. Alaei tabled {A-Clubs} {Q-Diamonds} {J-Diamonds} {9-Clubs}, his top two pair good enough to take down the full pot.

Negreanu is left with 230,000 chips after that misstep.

Alaei Stretches Lead

Daniel Alaei is a commanding chip leader now after taking a sizable pot from Scott Clements. There was action all the way on this one and we were left with a {Q-Spades} {10-Diamonds} {3-Spades} {7-Clubs} {9-Spades}

Alaei scooped the lot with {K-Spades} {K-Diamonds} {7-Spades} {6-Diamonds} for a rivered flush. We didn't get to see all of Clements hand but he did hold {Q-Hearts} {Q-Diamonds}.
