MonsterStack Action

After Katie "katelin" Lindsay bubbled the tournament in 330th place, the eliminations came at a rapid pace.

Among the notables to cash were eight-time WSOP bracelet winnerErik "NW1Time" Seidelman (321st - $895.96), Joon "jykpoker" Kim (157th - $1,231.95), Ian "apokerjoker2" Steinman (108th - $1,455.94), Ron "MacDaddy15" McMillen (65th - $2,127.92), Jason "haderade" Somerville (51st - $3,023.89), Louis "PokeThese" Lynch (31st - $4,367.84), Anthony "heheh" Zinno (22nd - $5,360.25), Robert "BustinBalls" Kuhn (19th - $5,487.80) and Thayer "Rasta_Raf" Rasmussen (8th - $17,447.13).

Final Table Action

Tom "4Logan" Dean started the final table as the short stack and he was the first to fall after his big slick was out-flopped by Chris "letsgetit888" Carey holding ace-jack.

Nick "DuckFlush" Pupillo came to the final table second in chips but lost two hands holding ace-queen to fall in eighth place.

Justin "Fatstax" Whitfield was the next player to fall when they jammed their stack into the middle after flopping an open-ended straight draw with ten-nine of diamonds and they were called by Torgerson who held king-ten of spades. Whitfield whiffed the turn and river ending their tournament in seventh place.

Brent "grebnrets" Roberts then bowed out in sixth place when his pocket eights failed to win a flip against Sam "texasmolly" Grizzle's ace-king.

Not long after, "letsgetit888" jammed his stack into the middle holding king-queen suited only to run into the ace-king of Torgerson. "letsgetit888" turned a queen only and it looked like they were going to double-up until Torgerson rivered broadway to send them home in fifth place.

Blair, who came to the final table as the chip leaders, found himself as the short-stack and he got his remaining chips in the middle after flopping an open-ended straight draw. Brandon "Omni27" Ienn called with trip sevens which held after Blair bricked the turn and river to end his night in fourth place.

Three-handed action saw the chips evenly dispersed until Sam "texasmolly" Grizzle three-bet jammed his remaining chips in the middle preflop after Torgerson had raised and was called.

Grizzle was racing holding queen-jack and took the lead after flopping a queen, but Torgerson spiked the river giving him a set of tens sending Grizzle out in third place.

Torgerson took a 2:1 chip lead into heads-up play and he chipped away Ienn until his remaining chips went into the middle holding ace-seven.

Unfortunately for Ienn, he was dominated as Torgerson held ace-eight and Ienn took his exit in second place for $106,508.19.

The next tournament on the schedule – Event #11: $500 No-Limit Hold'em Turbo Deepstack 6-Handed – will take place at 3 p.m. PDT on Saturday.
