Event 5: $1,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Vayo and Wiedemann Chop 72nd-Place Money

donpeters • Level 11: 600-1,200, 0 ante

It doesn't happen too often, but it did in this case — both Gordon Vayo and Barry Wiedemann were elimination on the same hand during hand-for-hand play and will chop up the $2,432 that would be awarded to 72nd place. Each will take home $1,216, so it was a total loss for them here in Event 5.

Vayo was all in preflop with the {A-Diamonds}{Q-Spades} against Clayton Mozdzen's {K-Diamonds}{9-Spades} on the bubble. Vayo was all in for 11,000. The flop came down {K-Hearts}{10-Spades}{10-Clubs} and Mozdzen took the lead with two pair, kings and tens. The {J-Clubs} on the turn gave Vayo a Broadway straight, but the {K-Spades} on the river filled Mozdzen up and sent Vayo out the door in 73rd place.

On another table, Wiedemann was all in preflop with the {A-Spades}{Q-Spades} versus an opponent's pocket eights. The flop, turn and river ran out {K-}{10-}{6-}{4-}{2-} and Wiedemann was eliminated.

With those eliminations, the remaining 71 players are now in the money. Play has stopped for the night with 41:53 left on the clock in Level 11 and that's where things will resume tomorrow at 1:00 PM. We'll have a recap coming shortly, so stay tuned.
