Lars Bonding

Dan Kelly opened on the button for 25,000 and Lars Bonding moved all in from the small blind, instant call from the youngster.


The board came      , Kelly fading the brief danger of a gutshot to increase his stack to just shy of a million chips.

Robert Smith

On a flop of     Joseph Webber bet 55,000 from early position and got a call from Robert Smith on the button.

The turn came a   and Webber bet even bigger this time, 125,000. Smith again just elected to call.

The river was a   and Webber started to count out a bet but eventually just said, "You know what, I'm all in." Smith made the call with his last 240,000.

Smith turned over    for trip aces, but Webber turned over    for trip aces with the superior kicker. It was close, but Webber had him covered and Smith hit the rail, bubbling the unofficial final table.

The final ten players have condensed into one table on the main stage. One more elimination and we will have our "Official" WSOP Final Table.

Andrew Pantling

Andrew Pantling had just been moved across tables and Dan Kelly made it 25,000 from early position, Robbie Verspui called from the button and Dan Makowsky made the call in the small blind before Pantling moved all in for just under 200,000.

Kelly quickly mucked, Verspui also thought about it but then folded but most surprisingly of all, Makowsky snap-called.


The flop couldn't really have been more decisive coming     and Pantling packed his bags as the   turn and   river sent him home.

Erik Cajelais, who earlier in the level was down to only 85,000 chips, has now worked his way up to well above the day's starting stack.

The table folded around to Dan Kelly in the small blind who raised it to 20,000. Cajelais in the big blind then raised it to 58,000. Kelly took some time then moved all in with a snap call from Cajelais.

Kelly had    and Cajelais had   .

The board ran out        and Cajelais fist pumped and doubled up to around 700,000. Kelly took a small hit but still has around 810,000

David Robinson

Dan Kelly raised to 18,000 and David Robinson moved all in from the small blind for 185,000. Lars Bonding in the big blind asked for a count and then made the call, Kelly quickly folded.


The board came       and Robinson fell to the Dane who is mounting a remarkable comeback.

Friday, June 10, 2011 3:27 PM Local Time

Lars Bonding and Frank Kassela got it all in preflop, Kassela had    and Bonding had   

The door card was the   but the rest of the flop ran out to show    for a flopped set by Bonding. The rest of the board ran out    and Kassela was crippled

We came in on a flop of    

Andrew Badecker bet 28,000 on the flop, Andrew Pantling called and Vitaly Lunkin folded.

The turn was a   Badecker checked, Pantling bet 50,000 and Badecker called.

The river was the   and again Badecker checked but this time Pantling went all in. Badecker had about 324,000 behind so he took his time with the decision but eventually called showing    to the    of Pantling; flush over flush.

After the hand, Pantling is back down to around 500,000 while Badecker has moved up to 850,000

Eric Yates

On the button, Eric Yates raised the pot to 20,000 preflop. Andrew pantling in the small blind re-raised to 54,000 and Yates called.

The flop was     and Pantling bet 55,000. Yates reluctantly splashed the pot with his call.

The turn came   and Pantling bet 101,000. After a little thinking, Yates moved all in for about 200,000 more and Pantling called. Yates showed    and Pantling had    for a flopped flush. The river was a   and Yates was eliminated.

Pantling moves up to around 950,000 and is challenging Dan Kelly for the chip lead.

Friday, June 10, 2011 2:51 PM Local Time

Lars Bonding, who was just crippled by Dan Kelly, has life again after a double-up against David Robinson.

We didn't see the action, but Bonding had    and Robinson had   . An ace on the baord was enough to double him up to about 320,000. Robinson on the other hand is left with under 200,000

Friday, June 10, 2011 2:46 PM Local Time

Dan Kelly

I don't know but maybe someone put something in the water today because these players are not playing as slowly as we expected. Dan Kelly opened to 12,000 preflop with Erik Cajelais and Lars Bonding both making the call to see a     flop.

It was checked to Kelly who bet 42,000, Cajelais folded but Bonding check-raised to 109,000 only for Kelly to then move all in for a total of 509,000. Bonding shrugged and called.


The   gave Kelly additional outs, now any king, queen, ten or eight would allow him to double up, any other card would spell his doom. The   hit the river much to Bonding's disappointment and Kelly moved into the chip lead, Bonding has around 120,000 remaining.

Friday, June 10, 2011 2:40 PM Local Time

Jon Spinks raised to 14,000 from the button and Joseph Webber made the call to see an     flop. Webber check-called a bet of 18,000 on the flop and then another of 48,000 on the   turn before both checked the   river. Webber showed    for a missed gutshot and flush draw and Spinks sighed and mucked his hand.

Lars Bonding

Lars Bonding fired out 21,000 on a flop of     against Robbie Verspui and the Dutch player made the call in this Euro vs Euro battle. Verspui also called another [47,000 on the   turn before both players checked the   river.

Verspui showed    but he had been pipped by the rivered flush for Bonding, the Danish player holding   .
