Daniel Fischer

Daniel Fischer from early position raised to a standard 13,000 with a call from Jonathan Spinks. Joseph Webber in late position however re-raised all in for over 250,000. The table folded over to Fischer who made the call, and after Spinks folded the cards were flipped.

Fischer seemed to have Webber dominated with    against Webber's    but the flop came     leaving Fischer drawing dead besides the possibility of a chop with a straight flush on the board. The turn came the   and Fischer hit the rail in 16th place.

Joseph Webber raised to 15,000 preflop and Andrew Pantling called in the big blind.

The flop came     and Pantling check-raised Webber's 25,000 bet to 51,000 which was called. Both players then checked the   turn before Pantling set Webber all in on for his last 87,000 on the   river. Webber snap-called having caught a two outer with    against Pantling's    to double back up.

Well, if table 280 continues like this, we'll be finished in around three more hands. Jon Spinks opened the button to 14,000 and Joseph Webber called in the small blind with Vitaly Lunkin calling in the big blind.

The flop was     and Webber bet 26,000 with Lunkin and Spinks both making the call. The   on the turn saw Webber not slowing down and he bet 78,000, Lunkin slowly made the call again and Spinks folded before the   river. Quickly Webber fired 150,000, Lunkin thought for a moment and made the call, Webber confidently showed    but it was no good against the Russian's flopped set holding of   .

Daniel Fischer opened to 12,000 from the hijack and got called by Andrew Pantling in the cutoff and Jon Spinks in the small blind.

The flop was     and Spinks checked, allowing Fischer to continue with a 27,000 bet, Pantling made the call and Spinks folded.

The   turn saw Fischer fire a second time, betting 52,000 only for Pantling to make it 131,000. Fischer tanked and then made the call before both players checked the   river. Fischer could only show    meaning that Pantling's attempted bluff with    was actually ahead all the way.

Frank Kassela - 2010 WSOP Player Of The Year

We have reached Day 3 and the final two tables here in the $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout.
Included in the stacked field field are four double bracelet winners including last year's WSOP Player Of The Year Frank Kassela, Vitaly Lunkin, Eric Cajelais and former $2,000 Shootout Champion David "The Dragon" Pham. The field also includes last year's $25,000 No-Limit Hold'em Six-Max Champ Dan Kelly who showed the most dominating performance at his table, finishing well before any of the others did. Other notables include Daniel Makwosky who has made three WSOP final tables, Lars Bonding who has made two WSOP Final Tables, and Jonathan Spinks who made a final table earlier this year in Seven Card Stud.

Until today, the format has been to play each table like a single table sit 'n' go, starting with nine on the first day and ten on the second day, each table playing down to a winner. Today, with our final 16, we will have two eight handed tables that will combine into a single table at the final 10. All players will start with 450,000 in chips and with a re-started structure unique to the day. Although there is a strict 10 level rule in place for all WSOP events this year, we are fairly confident that we will see a bracelet awarded today, and with this field, it is likely someone we have seen on the biggest stage in poker before.
