John Juanda Eliminated in 5th Place ($54,770); David Pham Eliminated in 4th Place ($89,736)

David Pham

We have just witnessed a double elimination here in the four-handed event and the tournament is down to three players.

Nick Schwarmann opened to 32,000 when first to act and David Pham called on the button. John Juanda called in the big blind and it was three-handed to the     flop.

Juanda checked to Schwarmann who made it 43,000 to play. Pham called, but Juanda sat riffling chips for the best part of a minute before swallowing hard and announcing he was all-in. Schwarmann instantly called, putting the action on Pham.

Pham asked if he called and lost would he finish fourth or fifth; there was a $34,000 between the two finishing positions. As Pham had a larger stack than Juanda, Pham would finish in fourth place if he called and lost. With that information processed, Pham called and we had a three-way all in!

Schwarmann showed    and Juanda asked Pham, "Do you have a draw too?" Pham did have a draw as he held   . "Well I have the best hand, now." Juanda showed   .

The turn was the  , a complete blank, but the river was the  , competing Schwarmann and Pham's flush, Schwarmann winning huge pot with the nut flush.

John Juanda0-375,000
David Pham0-430,000

Oliver Three-Bet Pham in Back-to-Back Hands

Justin Oliver has grown in confidence since moving to "The Mothership" and has started to three-bet David Pham relentlessly.

The first hand saw Pham open to 28,000 from the button and then fold when Oliver three-bet to 65,000 from the small blind.

The next hand, Pham opened to 26,000 and folded when Oliver re-raised to 60,000.

Pham needs to be careful because since losing that large pot to Oliver, he has been left with around 30 big blinds and they won't last long if you are raise-folding as often as Pham is right now.

Schwarmann Puts Juanda All-in

The action folded to John Juanda on the button and he raised to 24,000. Jared Jaffee folded his small blind but Nick Schwarmann had other ideas; one of those ideas was to raise all-in.

Juanda looked tempted to call before sending his cards to the muck.

"You probably had a small pair," said Juanda to Schwarmann just before Schwarmann showed him the  !

"I feel better now!" said Juanda.
