Christopher George Eliminated in 14th Place ($32,439)

Christopher George - 14th Place
Christopher George - 14th Place

Christopher George was all in on fourth street with the ({8-Hearts})({6-Clubs}) / {4-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}. He was up against the ({Q-Clubs})({7-Hearts}) / {Q-Spades}{Q-Hearts} of Dario Minieri.

Minieri picked up the {9-Hearts}{2-Clubs}-X to finish with trip queens while George could only muster the {J-Spades}{4-Spades}-X for a pair of fours. He was eliminated from the tournament while Minieri moved higher to 440,000.

Johnson Doubles


Marco Johnson was all in on fourth street with a hand of ({8-Spades})({4-Spades}) / {2-Spades}{3-Hearts}. He was up against Vladimir Schmelev and the ({K-Diamonds})({8-Diamonds}) / {K-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}. There was some confusion about the betting on fourth street and first everything was cleared up to see that Johnson was all in for 96,000 total. Once that was cleared up, the hands were run out.

Johnson: ({8-Spades})({4-Spades}) / {2-Spades}{3-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{Q-Spades} / ({3-Spades})
Schmelev: ({K-Diamonds})({8-Diamonds}) / {K-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{A-Diamonds} / ({4-Hearts})

Johnson pulled a flush and a low on the last card he was dealt in order to scoop the pot and double up to about 225,000 chips. Schmelev was left with 240,000.

Minieri Rolls Over George


Christopher George had his stack decimated when he took his split aces up against Dario Minieri's gutshot wheel draw. Minieri hit a deuce on the river to fill it and doubled up, leaving George on an extreme short stack once again.

Huge Scoop for Harman


Alessio Isaia (X)(X) / {5-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{J-Spades}{9-Spades} / (X)
Marco Johnson (X)(X) / {3-Spades}{5-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds} / (X)
Jennifer Harman (X)(X) / {A-Clubs}{2-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{6-Hearts} / (X)

We happened upon the action on fifth street with Harman betting out and both Isaia and Johnson making the call. Harman led again on sixth street and both opponents called. Harman and Isaia checked the river and with the action on Johnson, he exasperatedly knocked the table.

Harman showed {4-Hearts}{4-Spades}{Q-Spades} for two pair queens and fours. Johnson missed his low draw and Isaia mucked, Harman scooping the pot. She's up to 560,000 while Isiaia is down to 275,000 and Johnson is on 115,000.

Team PokerStars Hurting

Dario Minieri
Dario Minieri

The two remaining members of Team PokerStars Pro are Dario Minieri and George Lind. Minieri is part of Team Italy and Lind part of Team Online. Both of them have about 75,000 chips are are sitting at the bottom of the pack. It's going to take some work if they are going to climb out of the gutter and represent for PokerStars.
