Today’s Action

The eliminations were coming in in abundance from all corners of the Miranda Room here at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. Players like Georgios Sotiropoulos, Daniel Dizenzo, Andrew Teng, Tom McEvoy, Aurelie Reard, Kunal Patni, Dong Chen, Jeremy Ausmus, and Chen An Lin were all eliminated before the final three tables were being redrawn.

It then took less than an hour before the final eighteen players were known and redrawn again for the final two tables. Ian Steinman called Barber’s shove for his last nine million with pocket eights. Barber held the ducks and found another one on the turn to eliminate Steinman. Barber also took out Oswin Ziegelbecker in fifteenth place when Barber called the four-bet shove of Ziegelbecker with pocket kings. Ziegelbecker held ace-king and got no help of the board.

Andrew Barber
Andrew Barber finished second in the chip counts with 89,300,000

If you thought things were going fast already, the slew of eliminations kept going as the final eight players were reached 50 minutes later, even with a 15-minute break in between. Brazil’s Diego Lima fell in ninth place for $41,965 when he shoved with king-jack. Unfortunately for him, Depaulo held pocket kings and held throughout the board to bring only eight players to the final table instead of nine.

The eight remaining players played six hands before it was decided that they would bag up their chips for the final day on Sunday, June 30, to play down to a winner from noon local time with 19 minutes left in Level 42 which features a small blind of 1,000,000, big blind of 2,000,000, and a big blind ante of 2,000,000. They are also all guaranteed to cash for at least $53,925 when they return to the feature table to battle it out.

The final table will be streamed on CBS All Access from 1 p.m. local time with the hole cards exposed. As usual, the PokerNews live reporting team will be providing hand-for-hand coverage until the final cards have been dealt, so make sure to return.

Hand #1: Norson Saho pushed from the button and received no caller.

Hand #2: Ryan Depaulo limped the small blind and Juan Lopez checked in the big blind. The flop brought {9-Spades}{7-Hearts}{5-Spades} and Depaulo bet 2,500,000, which Lopez called. On the {a-Hearts} turn, a second barrel for 4,500,000 by Depaulo followed and Lopez came along to see the {k-Diamonds} river go check, check.

Depaulo turned over {7-Clubs}{6-Spades} and Lopez had that beat with the {j-Clubs}{9-Hearts}.

Hand #3: A walk for Sejin Park.

Hand #4: Andrew Barber min-raised to 4,000,000 first to act and Georgios Kapalas called in the big blind. On the {a-Spades}{6-Spades}{5-Clubs} flop, Kapalas checked and folded to a bet of 3,500,000 by Barber.

Hand #5: Depaulo raised to 4,000,000 from the hijack and scooped the blinds and big blind ante.

Hand #6: Action folded around to Barber in the small blind, he completed and Maksim Kalman raised to 5,000,000. They both checked through the flop of {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}{3-Clubs} to see the {q-Hearts} on the turn, on which Barber check-folded to Kalman's bet of 4,000,000.

Diego Lima moved all-in from the cutoff, the button folded, Ryan Depaulo instantly announced he was all-in as well and the big blind folded.

Diego Lima: {k-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}
Ryan Depaulo: {k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}

The flop came {j-Hearts}{7-Spades}{4-Diamonds} giving Lima some hope, but the turn {q-Clubs} and river {a-Diamonds} were not what Lima needed, sending him out of the tournament in 9th place.

Out of the small blind, Robert Sherwood raised to 6,000,000 and Georgios Kapalas moved all in from the big blind. Sherwood double-checked his cards and called all in for around 48,000,000.

Robert Sherwood: {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}
Georgios Kapalas: {a-Hearts}{q-Spades}

The Greek rail drew closer to the table and saw the flop of {q-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{2-Spades} improve Kapalas. After the {3-Diamonds} turn, Sherwood was down to two outs and the {3-Clubs} river came a blank to reduce the field to the final nine. They will now high card and redraw to the final table.
