Cyndy Violette

Mark Dickstein brought it in with the   and watched as Cyndy Violette completed. John Monnette then put in a raise, Dickstein called and Violette three-bet. Both Monnette and Dickstein called before the former double-bet the turn. Dickstein got out of the way while Violette called off.

Monnette:    /      /  
Violette:    /      /  

Violette was behind Monnette's two pair, but she managed to pull ahead on fifth street with jacks and tens. Unfortunately for her, Monnette would catch the improbable seven on seventh to fill up and send her home in 11th place.

After Tim Finne brought it in with the  , Raymond Dehkharghani completed and was met with a raise by Jeff Lisandro. Finne got out of the way, Dehkharghani called and then Lisandro fired out on the turn. Dehkharghani called, which he would do on fifth street as well, before he bet on sixth after Lisandro checked. This time the 2009 WSOP Player of the Year did the calling, though he would ultimately check-fold to a bet on seventh.

Lisandro: (x-x) /      / (x)
Dehkharghani: (x-x) /      / (x)

Lisandro, who started the day with a big chip lead, was left with just 25,000 after the hand. Fortunately for him, he received a double just a few hands later.

Perry Friedman's Kermit shoes... just because

Perry Friedman completed with the   and received a call from Eugene Katchalov, who was showing the  . Friedman then bet the turn and fifth street, which saw Katchalov call the first bet and then raise the other. Friedman called and the proceeded to check-call bets on both sixth and seventh streets.

Katchalov:     /     
Friedman: (x-x) /      / (x)

Katchalov's trip kings was enough to rake in the healthy pot as Friedman simply mucked his cards.

Max Pescatori

While catching the eliminations of Yuval Bronshtein and David Rosenau, another player busted over at Table 448. We're not sure of the details, but we can confirm that Max Pescatori was eliminated by Perry Friedman in 12th place.

David Rosenau was all in on the turn with two pair and up against Huu Vinh's pair of nines. The latter was looking to pair up to eliminated his opponent, which is what he did on sixth street after catching running tens. Rosenau was unable to catch and became the 13th-place finish, which earned him a $13,834 payday.

Yuval Bronshtein

A short-stacked Yuval Bronshtein was all in on third and the red-hot John Monnette put him at risk.

Bronshtein:    /      /  
Monnette:    /      /  

Bronshtein got it in good, but as we said before Monnette is running hot. That was evidenced by the three eights he hit in a row to send Bronshtein to the rail in 14th place.

John Monnette completed with the   only to have Jeff Lisandro, who was showing the  , put in a raise. Monnette was the only player to make the call, and he proceeded to call another bet on the turn. Fifth street saw Lisandro check-call a bet, and that action was repeated on sixth street. Lisandro checked for a third time on seventh, and then folded to Monnette's bet.

Mike Sexton all in

After Bryn Kenney brought it in with the  , Huu Vinh completed and Perry Friedman called. Mike Sexton then sprung to life with a raise, Kenney folded and both Vinh and Friedman called. The turn saw Sexton led out with a bet, both his opponents called, and then he committed his last 10,000 on fifth street. Again Vinh and Friedman called before the former fired out a bet on sixth and drove out the latter.

Sexton:    /      /  
Vinh:     /     
Friedman: (x-x) /      / (x)

Sexton got it in with kings but fell behind when Vinh made two pair on sixth. Sexton was drawing live on seventh, but the   blanked and he was eliminated in 15th place for $12,035. Ironically, Sexton also finished in 15th place in Event #4 $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low 8-or-Better earlier in the series.

Bryn Kenney

Bryn Kenney completed showing the   only to have Huu Vinh raise with the  . From there, Kenney called, Vinh bet the turn, and Kenney called again. Fifth street saw Vinh check-raise, Kenney call and then both players checked sixth. Vinh fired out a bet on seventh, but he was met with a raise by Kenney. Vinh gave it some thought but opted to concede the hand.

Jeff Lisandro had the bring in with the   and was soon met with a completion from Cyndy Violette. Lisandro made the call and proceeded to call bets on every street except for seventh, which both players checked.

Violette's aces proved to the winner as Lisandro sent his cards to the muck.

Nick Schulman

A short-stacked Nick Schulman was all in on third while Mark Dickstein and Jeff Lisandro competed for a side pot. Lisandro ended up check-calling a bet on the turn before folding to Dickstein's lead-out bet on fifth.

Schulman:    /      /  
Dickstein:    /      /  
Lisandro: (x-x) /     fold

Dickstein held two pair and was way out in front. Schulman managed to pair his ace on sixth, meaning he was drawing live headed to seventh, but the   would be no help. Schulman finished in 16th place and will take home $12,035 for his effort.
