Play Ended

poolshir • Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Play has ended with 39 players left on the clock. A selection of chip counts and a recap of today's action is to follow.

Gonsalves Takes Chip Lead

poolshir • Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Markus Gonsalves raised to 25,000 from early position and was only called by the player in the big blind.

The flop came {4-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds} and Gonsalves called the 50,000 bet of his opponent.

The turn was the {5-Spades}, now Gonsalves called the 100,000 continuation-bet of his opponent.

The {j-Hearts} on the river completed the board, Gonsalves' opponent now checked. Gonsalves himself tanked for a bit and then decided to shove. His opponent looked at his cards once more and then folded.

Virani Takes Ferguson Out

poolshir • Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

The flop read {10-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{8-Clubs} and Chris Ferguson shoved from the big blind for around 120,000. Mohsin Virani, in late position, snap-called.

Chris Ferguson: {A-Diamonds}{10-Spades}
Mohsin Virani: {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs}

The rest of the board was completed with the {k-Hearts} on the turn and the {2-Hearts} on the river to eliminate Ferguson from the tournament.
