Martin made the call and a   fell on the turn. This time Martin would opt to check-call and the   would complete the board on the river. When the player's turned their cards over, Martin's pair of sixes was enough to take down the hand and rake in the pot.

Matt Glantz - 6th Place

Matt Glantz has made it two eliminations in just half an hour here as he makes his way way to the rail in 6th place. The hand in question began when Jesse Martin raised it up from the cutoff. Glantz called in the big blind and a     flop was dealt. Glantz led here and Martin called.

The   on the turn would see Glantz flick in the remainder of his chips, which equaled just less than a big bet. Martin made the call and turned over   , well ahead of Glantz's   . When the   landed on the river, it was all over for Glantz.

Jesse Martin just taken down two hands in a row. The first hand saw him simply open it up preflop and pick up the blinds, while the second hand was a little more eventful. From the cutoff, Martin opened it up and received the lone call from Matt Glantz in the big blind. The     flop was slammed on the felt and Martin bet after Glantz checked. A call and the   hit the turn. Glantz would again check-call and the   would complete the board. This time both players checked and Glantz mucked his hand as Martin tabled his   .

Matthew Woodward - 7th Place

It only took a few minutes after the dinner break for this tournament to head to six-handed play. Here is how that panned out.

A short-stacked Matthew Woodward opened it up from middle position and Benjamin Scholl called in the big blind. A     flop would see Scholl check and Woodward bet. Scholl then made it two bets and Woodward committed the last of his chips.

The players turned their hands over, with Woodward holding    and needing some runner-runner help against the    of Scholl. The turn ( ) and river ( ) weren't what Woodward was looking for as he exits the tournament in 7th place.

Matthew Woodward has just gone on a bit of a roller coaster ride before the dinner break. Firstly, Woodward was left crippled when the following hand played out with Matt Glantz.

Folded to Woodward in the small blind, he raised it up holding   . Glantz was in the big blind and called holding   . The     flop would see Woodward lead and Glantz throw in an extra bet. Woodward then made it three-bets and Glantz called. The   turn and Woodward would bet as Glantz would put in a little extra and find himself all in. Woodward made the call and when the players turned their cards over, it was looking like Glantz would be sent home. However the   on the river had different ideas as Glantz doubled and Woodward was left crippled.

Woodward would then find himself all-in preflop holding    against the    of Andrew Prock. The board ran out      , with Woodward managing the double-up to survive.

Andrew Prock has been on a bit of a run lately and that has continued in the following hand against Jeff Shulman. It started when the action was folded around to Shulman whoi raised the button. Prock was in the small blind and made it three bets. A call from Shulman and the     flop would be dealt. Prock led on the flop and then Shulman made it two bets. Prock called and a   hit the turn. Both players checked here and then Prock led again on the   river. Shulman stared him down before making the call.

When Prock tabled his    for the nut flush, Shulman's cards would go into the muck and Prock would take down the handy pot.

Raymond Dehkharghani raised it up and Andrew Prock made the call out of the big blind. The     flop would see Prock check and Dehkharghani bet. Prock called and the   hit the turn. Prock again checked and Dehkharghani again bet. Prock opted to flick out another call and a   would be dealt on the river.

Prock checked yet again on the river and Dehkharghani yet again fired out a bet. Prock opted to commit to a call and then mucked his hand as Dehkharghani tabled his   .

Matt Glantz was under the gun when he raised it up. Andrew Prock then three-bet on his left and it was back on Glantz, who put in the remainder of his chips. Prock made the call and the two players turned their hands over.

Nicholas Derke - 8th Place

Nicholas Derke's last hand began when Andrew Prock opened the cutoff. Derke was on the button and made the call and a     flop would hit the felt. Prock check called a bet here and a   hit the turn. Prock again checked, but this time raised when Derke put in a bet. Derke then called all-in and turned over his   , which would need help against the    of Prock.

The   on the river wasn't what Derke was looking for and he was sent home in 8th place. With that hand, Prock takes a chip lead.

Nicholas Derke0-141,000

Matthew Woodward and Raymond Dehkharghani capped the betting preflop to see all of Woodward's remaining chips enter the pot.


Woodward would need to dodge some cards to stay alive and that's what he would do as the       board would give him a set and the nice pot.

Ayman Qutami - 9th place

We have just lost our first player here at the final table, with Ayman Qutami our 9th-place finisher. His last hand started when he opened it up from middle position. Andrew Prock was in the big blind and called as a     flop was dealt on the felt. Qutami led and then called the extra bet from Prock. The   turn and Qutami would commit the last of his chips and turn over    to be in front of the    of Prock.

Unfortunately for Qutami, the   on the river would give Prock two-pair, to see him rivered and eliminated.

Folded to Matt Glantz in the small blind, he put in the raise. Jeff Shulman then promptly three-bet in the big blind and Glantz made the call.

The     flop would see Glantz check and Shulman bet. Glantz slid out the call and a   was dealt on the turn. Again Glantz checked and Shulman bet. Glantz took his time before letting go of his hand and sending the pot to Shulman.

The last couple of hands have seen the blinds picked up without a contest. First Benjamin Scholl opened the pot and got no action and then Nicholas Derke did the same.

Monday, June 11, 2012 6:30 PM Local Time

Nicholas Derke started the action from under the gun. Folded around to Jeff Shulman in the small blind and he tossed in an extra bet. Andrew Prock then four-bet out of the big blind and it was back on Derke who let his hand go. Shulman made the call and a     flop would be dealt on the felt.

On the flop, Shulman would check and one bet from Prock would be enough to see Shulman's cards into the muck.

Monday, June 11, 2012 6:24 PM Local Time

Jesse Martin made it two bets from the hijack and Raymond Dehkharghani made it three-bets from the small blind. The     flop would see Dehkhargahni lead with a bet and Martin Call. The   turn and Dehkharghani would lead again. Martin announced a raise and Dehkhargahni made the call.

When the   completed the board on the river, Dehkhargahni led and Martin called. Dehkharghani's    was good enough for a broadway straight and good enough to see Martin's cards into the muck.
