Bonnie Overfield Eliminated in 8th Place ($17,520)

Bonnie Overfield - 8th place
Bonnie Overfield - 8th place

Timmi Derosa opened with a raise to 50,000 from middle position, and the table folded around to Bonnie Overfield who reraised all in for 352,000 from the big blind. Derosa instantly called.

Bad news for Overfield. She tabled {A-Spades}{K-Spades}, but Derosa had picked up pocket rockets once again -- {A-Clubs}{A-Hearts}.

The flop came {K-Hearts}{8-Spades}{5-Clubs}, pairing Overfield's king. But the turn was the {7-Hearts} and the river the {5-Diamonds}, and Overfield is out in eighth.

With that hand Derosa chips up over 760,000.


Loren Watterworth Eliminated in 9th Place ($13,688)

Sidsel Boesen raised to 36,000 under the gun and Loren Watterworth moved all in for 48,000 total. Action folded back to Boesen and she made the call for 12,000 more.

Watterworth: {A-Diamonds}{10-Spades}
Boesen: {A-Clubs}{J-Spades}

The flop came out {J-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{5-Hearts}, giving Boesen a commanding lead. The {A-Spades} on the turn left Watterworth drawing dead. The {9-Spades} on the river made it official and Watterworth was eliminated in ninth place for $13,688.

Boesen Bounces Back Through Chisholm


Kami Chisholm opened with a raise to 37,000, and Sidsel Boesen -- sitting to Chisholm's left -- pushed all in for 113,000 total. It folded back around to Chisholm who made the call. The players tabled their hands:

Chisholm {9-Spades}{9-Hearts}
Boesen {A-Spades}{K-Spades}

The flop came {A-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{8-Clubs}, and Boesen had paired her ace. The turn was the {4-Diamonds} and the river {Q-Hearts}, and Boesen doubled to just over 250,000. Chisholm, meanwhile, is still comfortably out in front with about 970,000.

Another Rare Flop


Allison Whalen was under the gun and she decided to limp. Action folded to Holly Hodge in the big blind and she checked her option.

The flop came {9-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}{J-Hearts} and Hodge checked. Whalen bet 30,000 and took down the pot.

Boesen Trying to Stop Slide


It has been a tough hour-and-a-half of poker for Sidsel Boesen. She was the chip leader when we began play today. But following a few laydowns and that double-up for Allison Whalen, Boesen found herself down at the bottom of the counts with less than 100,000.

She's trying to do something about it, though. Just now she open-raised all in from the hijack seat with her last 85,000, and won the blinds and antes. She's still short with about 110,000, with only Loren Watterworth with fewer chips than her at the moment.

Allison Whalen raised to 40,000 from the cutoff and was reraised to 110,000 by Sidsel Boesen in the small blind.

Whalen then moved all in for 155,000 more and Boesen called.

Boesen: {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}
Whalen: {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}

Whalen was way ahead as the board ran out {2-Spades}{8-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}. Whalen doubled to around 544,000 while Boesen, who started the day as chip leader, was left with a little under 100,000.

Some Final Table Support


Lee Watkinson has arrived to support his fiancée, Timmi Derosa. Watkinson, of course, has some significant final table experience of his own, having multiple WPT final tables, a WSOP bracelet (2006, $10,000 pot-limit Omaha), and perhaps most memorably, a WSOP Main Event final table appearance in 2007 when he finished eighth.

Derosa is in second place at the moment with 415,000, but like everyone else at the table is looking way up to Kami Chisholm and her 1,000,000-plus chip stack.
