Shulman Jams the Flop

Allyn Jaffrey Shulman opened for a raise to 16,000, and Stephen Chidwick repotted to 60,000. Shulman made the call after everyone else had folded.

The flop came    , and Shulman must have liked what she saw because she moved all in, covering Chidwick. Chidwick tanked for about two minutes before softly pushing his cards to the dealer.

Nelson Doubles Through Chidwick

Tyler Nelson and Stephen Chidwick got all the money in before the flop. Nelson was holding      and we only saw Chidwicks     . Either way, the board ran out       and that was good for Nelson to get a full scoop for both the high and low. He's up close to 200,000 while Chidwick is hurting for some chips with just about 120,000 left.

Ari Engel Eliminated in 17th Place ($10,699)

Ari Engel

Ari Engel and Joshua Weiland got it all in before the flop.


The board ran out      , doubling Weiland up.

A short time later, Engel got all in with      against an opponent who held     . The player with the aces made a straight on the river, and Engel was done.

Meanwhile, at the other table, Mel Judah managed to quarter an opponent despite being well behind on the     flop. Judah had     , but his opponent had      for a wheel. The turn was a  , giving Judah the high, but the   river allowed him to chop the low.

Weiland Gets Some Back From Cai

Action folded to Joshua Weiland who potted from the button to 28,000. Zhen Cai in the big blind repotted and the two got it all in.


The board ran out       giving Weiland a seven-high straight and a deuce-three low, that was good enough to scoop the pot for a double.

Shulman Quarters Weiland

Allyn Jaffrey Shulman check-called a bet from Joshua Weiland after the     flop. She then check-called again for the last of Weiland's chips after the   turn.


Shulman had the lead for low, and both players had the same straight draw, but a high card would give Weiland the whole pot with ace-jack high. Unfortunately for him, the river was the  , giving both players their straights but Shulman the low, so Weiland only collected a quarter of the pot.

Engel Doubles Through Chidwick Early

Ari Engel

Ari Engel popped things off with a raise to 28,000 only to find a raise from Stephen Chidwick to 48,000. Action folded around and Engel met him with a call.

The flop came down     and Engel moved all in for his last 27,000. Chidwick snapped called and the two turned up their hands.


The turn was the   giving Engel the nut straight and leaving Chidwick drawing dead to any part of the pot. The river was the meaningless   and that was it. Chidwich was forced to cut out a piece of his stack and ship it over to Engel who got a much needed double up.
