Eric Wasserson Eliminated in 7th Place ($17,161)

Eric Wasserson - 7th Place

It took less than one orbit at the seven-handed table for the next elimination to come, with Eric Wasserson being the player knocked out.

Wasserson's final hand began with him raising from middle position, then Scott Seiver three-bet from the button and when it folded back to Wasserson he thought a moment then called. Wasserson then drew one card and Seiver two, and when Wasserson led with a bet, Seiver quickly called.

Both took a single card on the next draw, with Seiver again calling a bet from Wasserson. Wasserson stood pat, Seiver took one card one last time, and when Wasserson tossed out his last 12,000, Seiver called right away.

Seiver quickly tabled his number three —       — and Wasserson showed his       before departing in seventh.

The final six players are taking a break now as preparations are made for the official final table.

Elezra Best Negreanu

On the first hand of the unofficial final table, Eli Elezra raised it up from under the gun, and Daniel Negreanu defended his big blind. Negreanu drew one, while Elezra drew two, and Negreanu bet in the dar. Elezra called, and the same drawing action happened. Negreanu bet, and this time, Elezra raised. Negreanu called, and said "you're gonna make me break the best hand," and discarded one. Elezra patted, and both players checked.

Elezra showed      , and Negreanu flashed a ten before mucking.

Alexander Condon Eliminated in 8th Place ($17,161)

Alexander Condon - 8th Place

Alexander Condon found himself having slipped back down to about 50,000 and was in the small blind when Eli Elezra raised the button. It folded to Condon who looked down at his hand and had to fold — he'd been dealt aces full.

On the next orbit, Condon was raising from under the gun and it folded to David Chiu in the big blind who three-bet and Condon called. Condon took two and Chiu one, then Chiu check-called a Condon bet. Chiu took two again while Condon stood pat, and again Chiu check-called after Condon bet his last 4,000 chips.

Chiu took one card on the third draw, and Condon tabled his      .

Chiu was drawing live with his     , and after picking up a   for his last card, Condon was eliminated.

There will be a short break while the remaining seven players redraw for seats around the not-quite-final final table.

Seiver Gets There

Daniel Negreanu raised it up on the button, and Scott Seiver called from the small blind. Seiver drew two, while Negreanu drew three, and Seiver bet in the dark. Negreanu called, then Seiver drew one while Negreanu drew two. The same betting action occurred, and Seiver took one, while Negreanu patted. Seiver checked, and Negreanu quickly checked behind.

"Good check," Seiver said as he rolled over      . Negreanu said he had a "bad nine," before mucking his hand.

Some for Seiver

Daniel Negreanu raised from the button and got one caller in Scott Seiver from the small blind. Seiver then rapped the felt to indicate he was standing pat, and after voicing a "Wow" Negreanu drew two cards. Seiver bet, and with some hesitation Negreanu called.

Seiver continued to stand pat the next two draws while Negreanu took one each time. Seiver bet after the second and Negreanu called, then both checked on the end.

Seiver tabled       and Negreanu nodded as he mucked his hand, with subsequent talk making it sound as though Negreanu had made a   .

Baker Takes Big One From Wasserson

Eric Wasserson raised under the gun, and David "ODB" Baker reraised next to act. It folded back around to Wasserson, and he called, then drew three. Baker drew two, and Wasserson check called a bet. This time, Baker drew one, Wasserson drew two, and the same betting action happened. Each player drew one the third time around, and Wasserson fired out this time.

Baker thought for a bit, then said "I should raise," before he tossed in the call. Baker showed      , and Wasserson shot up out of his chair, showed   , then mucked.

Michael Mizrachi Eliminated in 9th Place ($12,683)

Michael Mizrachi - 9th Place

Michael Mizrachi just found himself in a three-way battle with David "ODB" Baker and Daniel Negreanu in which he had position on the other two, but was playing with a short stack.

They reached the first draw with Baker and Mizrachi each taking two cards and Negreanu one. Baker checked, Negreanu bet, and both Mizrachi and Baker called. Baker and Negreanu took one each on the second draw while Mizrachi took two, and again it checked to Negreanu who bet. This time Mizrachi committed his last 15,000 with his call, and Baker called as well.

The third draw saw Baker taking one, Negreanu standing pat, and Mizrachi tanking for a while before discarding two. Baker then check-folded to Negreanu's bet, with the latter quickly saying "Ten!" as he tabled      .

Mizrachi checked his cards, then shook his head when he saw he'd failed to draw a better hand and mucked.

After starting the day with one of the short stacks, Negreanu is now going to be taking the chip lead to the first break.

Baker Bests Wasserson

From the cutoff seat, Eric Wasserson raised. David "ODB" Baker reraised on the button, then play folded back to Wasserson. He made it four bets, and Baker called.

On the first draw, Wasserson took one and Baker took two. Wasserson fired a bet, and Baker called.

For the second draw, both players took one. Both players then checked.

On the third and final draw, both players took one again. Wasserson then led with a bet, Baker raised, and Wasserson called.

Baker showed the       for an eighty-six, and Wasserson mucked his hand.

Negreanu Chip Leader, Mizrachi Getting Short

Daniel Negreanu

We only caught the tail end of the hand that got Daniel Negreanu the chip lead, but we know that Negreanu check raised Michael Mizrachi after the second draw. Both of them stood pat, and Negreanu bet again after the third draw. Mizrachi called, and Negreanu showed      , which beat Mizrachi. Negreanu jumped up to 490,000 after that hand.

A few hands later, Mizrachi raised under the gun, and Eric Wasserson reraised from the button. Mizrachi called, then drew three, while Wasserson drew just one. Mizrachi check called, then drew one, while Wasserson stood pat. The same betting action happened, then the same draws, but this time, Mizrachi check folded.

Chiu Bets, Earns Fold

Alexander Condon raised from under the gun and David Chiu defended his big blind. Both took two on the first draw, with Chiu betting and Condon calling. Chiu took one on the second and Condon two, and again Chiu bet and Condon called.

Chiu then stood pat as Condon drew one, and when Chiu bet Condon went into the tank for more than half a minute before folding, showing his    as he did. Chiu grinningly showed two of his cards, too —    — and Condon had to laugh.

Eighty-Seven No Good for Elezra

Eli Elezra raised it on the button, and Alexander Condon reraised from the big blind. Condon drew one, while Elezra drew three, and Condon bet dark. Elezra called, and Condon stood pat, while Elezra drew one. Condon bet dark again, and Elezra called. Both players stood pat, and Condon bet a third time. Elezra called, and Condon announced "eighty six perfect", showing      .

Elezra cringed, then showed      . Afterwards, he said "I drew my perfect card and I still lost," he said with a frustrated smile.

Seiver's Ups and Downs

Scott Seiver just survived an all-in situation after committing his last chips in a hand versus Daniel Negreanu, then drawing one card to make an eight smooth —       — while Negreanu drew one to pair up on the end.

Seiver then lost some back to Eric Wasserson in a three-way hand that saw David "ODB" Baker hand in through the second draw, then Wasserson and Seiver made it to showdown with Wasserson showing an       and Seiver mucking.

With less than 80,000, Seiver again has just under five big bets with which to work.

Seiver Doubles With Wheel

Scott Seiver raised it up on the button, and Eric Wasserson called from the small blind. Wasserson drew two, while Seiver drew three, and Wasserson check called a bet from Seiver. Wasserson drew one, while Seiver stood pat, and Wasserson check called again. The same drawing action happened, and Wasserson bet enough to put Seiver all in.

Seiver snap called, and showed the nuts:      , which improbably he got after drawing three, while Wasserson shook his head, and showed      .

Scott Seiver raised from the cutoff seat, Eric Wasserson three-bet from the button, and after the blinds got out, Seiver called.
