Level 19 : Blinds 10,000/15,000, 15,000 ante

Duane Blanchard opened the action to 30,000 from the hijack and only the player in the big blind made the call.

Deardorff Doubles to Slow Down Sabe

Level 19 : Blinds 10,000/15,000, 15,000 ante

Joseph Sabe was running away with the chip lead and he nearly added more to his stack after Kristen Deardorff shoved all in for 240,000 from the hijack. Sabe called from the big blind and was in great shape.

Kristen Deardorff: {a-Hearts}{7-Hearts}
Joseph Sabe: {9-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}

The flop of {q-Spades}{10-Spades}{5-Diamonds} provided no immediate help for Deardorff who was looking for an ace. The {k-Diamonds} on the turn gave her a straight draw but it was the {a-Clubs} on the river that kept Deardorff in the tournament and slowed down Sabe.
