Lew Eliminated; Kwon Advances

OHairDJ • Level 6: 1,500-3,000, 0 ante
Randy Lew Eliminated
Randy Lew Eliminated

Christoph Kwon chipped Randy "Nanonoko" Lew down with relentless aggression until Lew was critically short-stacked. In the second-to-last hand, Kwon raised from the button and Lew called. The flop came {3-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} and Lew check-called a bet from Kwon on both the flop and on the {3-Clubs} turn. When a {2-Hearts} completed the board, Kwon led out again and Lew folded with just a few thousand behind.

On the last hand, Lew raised all-in preflop and Kwon called.

Kwon: {Q-Clubs}{4-Clubs}
Lew: {10-Spades}{5-Spades}

The board ran out {A-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{7-Spades}{9-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds} and Lew had to settle for a second-round finish worth $4,118.

Tyburski and James Cohn Heads Up


With the recent elimination of Ricky Fohrenbach, James Cohn and Adam Tyburski have gotten heads up. Tyburski wasted no time two betting Cohn when facing a raise. Tyburski called and got to see a {8-Hearts}{A-Spades}{10-Hearts} flop. Tyburski then check-called another bet from Cohn.

The {j-Spades} on the turn brought a two bet from Tyburski and a call from Cohn. The river {6-Spades} had the same results with another two bet and another call from Cohn. Tyburski flipped over {K-}{Q-} for broadway and took the pot down.

A very short-stacked Luke Nettles opened from the button and Randy "Nanonoko" Lew three-bet from the small. Kwon folded and Nettles called all in.

Nettles: {Q-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}
Lew: {K-Clubs}{3-Hearts}

The board ran out {k-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{2-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and Nettles was sent to the rail.

Katchalov And Rybachenko Heads-Up


After the elimination of Matthew Schreiber, Eugene Katchalov and Sergey Rybachenko are heads-up.

Schreiber got it all in preflop against Katchalov holding {a-Spades}{7-Clubs} and dominated by the {a-Hearts}{10-Clubs} of Katchalov. The board ran out {6-Spades}{6-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{8-Hearts} and Schreiber hit the rail in third.

Katchalov is down two to one to Rybachenko, but he came back from 20-1 heads-up yesterday to score the win, so it's any man's game at this point. Katchalov is one of the hottest players in the world and should never be counted out.

That leaves us with two completed tables, two heads-up tables and the other six tables at three-handed or more. We are making progress though and our final ten isn't too far away.

Table 275

[user198174] • Level 5: 1,000-2,000, 0 ante

While we have two tables that are already completed with their winners going home to rest for tomorrow's final table there is still one table playing five handed. Table 275 still has Steven Hustoft, Ari Engel, Ha Pham, Brock Parker and Hal Lubarsky playing. Ironically the only person who has been eliminated at their table is Ben Yu, who came in second in this event last year. The table is tough, and is looking to go on for awhile. With no clearly dominate chip leader, any one player can win this table.

Pechie Bests Crain

Paul_Oresteen • Level 5: 1,000-2,000, 0 ante

Justin Pechie punished Eric Crain during heads up play. If Crain had a pair, Pechie had him outkicked. If Crain had two pair, Pechie held higher two pair. Sense a pattern?

Crain couldn't gain any traction and on his last hand he held {5-Spades} {3-Diamonds} and Pechie held {K-Hearts} {5-Diamonds}. As fate would have it, they both paired their five, but Pechie's king took the hand and earned Pechie as spot at the final table.
