Chambers Triples


Carter Phillips opened to 200,000 from the button and Tom Chambers moved all in for 435,000 total. Joe Cada raised to 675,000 from the big blind and Phillips responded by moving 1,375,000 into the pot. Cada folded and the hands were turned up:

Phillips: {A-Hearts}{K-Clubs}
Chambers: {4-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}

The board fell {8-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{J-Spades} and Chambers was able to win the pot and triple up.

"I folded ace-jack," remarked a dejected Joe Cada after the hand.

Phillips Scores Huge Double Up

Carter Phillips Doubles Up
Carter Phillips Doubles Up

Tom Chambers opened in the cutoff to 225,000 and it folded to Carter Phillips who moved all in from the big blind for 2,440,000. Chambers called and showed {J-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}. Phillips had {A-Diamonds}{Q-Spades} and we were off to the races.

Phillips jumped into the lead on the {Q-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} flop by pairing his queen. It wouldn't be a race without a sweat, however, as the turn brought the {K-Hearts} giving Chambers outs to make a straight. The river bricked out though, bringing the {5-Hearts}.

This hand was a key double up for Phillips while crippling Chambers.

Najib Kamand - 5th Place
Najib Kamand - 5th Place

Carter Phillips opened to 160,000 from the button only to have Najib Kamand move all in for his last 1,350,000 from the small blind. Tom Chambers was in the big blind and also announced that he was all in. Phillips folded and the hands were shown:

Kamand: {A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}
Chambers: {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}

Chambers was ahead with the tens and stayed the way when the dealer spread out a flop of {8-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{5-Hearts}. Fourth street brought the {4-Clubs} and Kamand was one card away from elimination.

The {7-Clubs} was of no help to Kamand and he was sent home in 5th place to find solace in his $153,578 in tournament winnings.

Carter Climbing Back


Carter Phillips limped before the flop and it folded to Cherish Andrews who checked her option in the big blind.

The dealer put a flop of {7-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts} in the middle of the table and Andrews check-called a bet of 155,000. The {10-Spades} appeared on fourth street and Andrews checked for a second time. Phillips bet once again, this time making the magic number 350,000. Andrews called and we were off to the river.

The {7-Hearts} came on fifth and Andrews checked for a third time. Phillips announced that he was all in for his remaining 990,000 and Andrews folded after pondering for a moment.

Phillips is now sitting on a stack of about 2,200,000.
