Event 6: Paul Stanechewski eliminated in 6th ($1,114)

$120 + $30 No Limit Hold ‘Em

Blinds: 6k/12k/2k ante

Paul Stanechewski took a shot with the blinds going up and called all-in after a raise from Guigui. Andrew Frier also came along and they checked down the AdQh5c2cKs board until the river when Stanechewski rolled over Tc5s before Frier stopped him.

“I have to bet,” he said throwing out 40,000. Guigui folded and Frier showed JhTd for the Broadway straight. “If I don’t be the nuts, I get a penalty.” Stanechewski picked up $1,114 for his 6th place finish while Frier is up to 400,000.

Event 6: Mike Filipelli eliminated in 10th ($354)

$120 + $30 No Limit Hold ‘Em

Blinds 3k/6k/1k ante

Mike Filipelli was bringing up numbers for a 10-handed chop but no one else was buying it. Once the action was underway, he moved all-in with 8s8h after action folded to him. Andrew Frier considered his action before just calling the bet. Everyone else folded and Frier tabled AhAd.

It was over quick as Frier hit the AcTh7c flop leaving Filipelli looking for a miracle. The Kh locked up the hand to send Filipelli out in 10th place for $354.

Event 6: Albert Palma and Philllip Tyson eliminated in 11th/12th

$120 + $30 No Limit Hold ‘Em

Blinds 3k/6k/1k ante

The short-stacked table finally had its moment. Albert Palma doubled up Ron Blankenship leaving him with just a single 1k chip. He hit a flush with his first all-in but pushed his 6k in under the gun with Qc5c and was called by Phillip Tyson and Homer Molina in the blinds.

Tyson shoved all in on the 8d6h3h flop with two pair 8s3d against Molina top pair Ts8h and Palma was stuck with Qc5c. The Tc improved Wallace and the 5s river gave him the double elimination of Palma and Tyson.

The clock was paused to form the unofficial final table.
