From the button, Jordan Young pushed in 62,000 leaving himself just 8,000 behind. Todd Terry made the call, and then when he realized that Young only had a few thousand more, they committed what remained and opted to just run the board out.

Young: {K-Hearts}{6-Spades}
Terry: {A-Spades}{5-Clubs}

The board was spread {9-Spades}{10-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} to see Young fall one place shy of his second WSOP final table this series as Terry emerges as the victor.

James Akenhead - 15th Place

On a {6-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts} flop we found James Akenhead seeing the last of his chips enter the pot against Jeffrey Gross.

Akenhead: {A-Spades}{3-Hearts}
Gross: {A-Clubs}{8-Hearts}

With Akenhead trailing in both hand strength and chip advantage, the {2-Hearts} and {4-Clubs} on the turn and river wouldn't be what he was looking for as he was bundled to the rail in 15th place as Gross advances through to the final table.

Terry Takes Huge Lead


Jordan Young opened his button to 8,000 only to have Todd Terry three-bet to 20,000 from the big blind. Young four-bet the action to 46,500 only to have Terry move all in for 249,000. Young made the call and the cards were placed on their backs.

Terry: {A-Spades}{Q-Spades}
Young: {A-Hearts}{10-Clubs}

The flop of {8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} saw Young flop a straight draw, but when the turn and river rolled out the {K-Spades} and {K-Clubs}, he would slip to just over 100,000 as Terry climbs to just under 500,000 in chips.

Gavin Smith raised to 10,000 from the button and Dan Smith three-bet enough to put Gavin all-in. Gavin pushed his remaining 95,000 into the middle.

Gavin: {A-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}
Dan: {3-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}

The flop came {K-Clubs}{6-Spades}{3-Hearts} and Gavin got up out of his seat, realizing he was drawing to a runner-runner straight.

The {7-Hearts} and {7-Diamonds} came on the turn and river respectively, leaving Gavin second-best and ending his tournament life.

Our PokerNews reporter saw Erik Seidel exiting the room, and quickly headed over to his table to investigate the demise of the poker legend.

Speaking to the two remaining players and the dealer, they informed us that Nikita Lebedev held {J-}{9-} to Seidel's {Q-}{J-}. Not only was there a nine on the flop, but also one on the turn and river to send Seidel to the rail in 17th place while leaving Lebedev and Kyle Frey heads up with Levedev holding a near seven-to-two chip advantage.

Frey Doubles Through Seidel....Again


On a {4-Spades}{6-Hearts}{10-Clubs} flop, Erik Seidel check-called a 13,000 bet from Kyle Frey in a blind vs. blind situation.

Both players checked when the {10-Hearts} fell on the turn.

When the {6-Spades} river came, Seidel checked and Frey went all-in for his last 40,000. Seidel tanked, but eventually tossed in a call. Frey tabled {Q-Diamonds}{10-Spades} for tens-full. Seidel mucked.

JP Kelly Eliminated in 18th Place ($13,368); Tom Marchese Advances!

JP Kelly - 18th Place
JP Kelly - 18th Place

On a {7-Clubs}{8-Spades}{3-Spades} flop we found JP Kelly raising himself all in against Tom Marchese.

Kelly: {A-Spades}{2-Spades}
Marchese: {7-Spades}{7-Hearts}

With Kelly needing to spike a spade or running cards for a straight, the {5-Diamonds} on the turn would be one of his runner-runner outs.

Unfortunately for the former bracelet holder, the {J-Diamonds} on the river wouldn't be his ideal card as he was bundled out in 18th place as Tom Marchese advances through to the final table.
