Updates From Other Tourneys in Progress (Events 11, 14, 15, 16)

While our primary coverage is focused on the final two tables of Event 7 ($560 NLHE w/ $1 Million Guarantee), there are still four other events underway in other parts of the room.

They are down to 11 players in Event 11 ($2,200 NLHE), with the blinds at 800-1,600 and a 200 ante. The average stack has about 116,000 (72 big blinds).

There are still quite a few notables knocking on the door of this final table, including Tommy Vedes, Blaine Dermot, Ashton Griffin, Justin Conley, John Gordon, and Zachary Kessler.

Event 14 ($150 NLHE) ended last night with 19 players remaining, and they are just about to resume play at 3:00 pm.

The Seniors Event got underway at 12:00 noon (Event 15 – $240 Seniors NLHE), and attracted a field of 192 players. That number is unofficial, as we are still waiting for the prizepool to be announced. There are currently about 108 players remaining.

Event 16 ($350 NLHE 6-Max) kicked off at 1:00 pm, and the field is up to 161 players. Registration remains open a little while longer, and the prizepool information should be released a little later this afternoon.

Event 7: Campanello Reaches 16M; Chang Huang Out 18th

Now that the field is down to the final two tables in Event 7 ($560 NLHE w/ $1 Million guarantee), we’re going to amp up our coverage a bit and provide more hand updates. The stakes are getting higher and higher as they approach that first prize of $291,087.

At Table 1, Ray Piccin limps from the cutoff for 120,000, Johnny Miller completes the small blind, and chipleader Bryan Campanello checks his option in the big blind. The flop comes Jc10s9d, and it checks to Piccin, who bets 200,000. Miller and Campanello both call.

The turn pairs the board with the 9c, and Miller bets out 450,000. Both players call. The river is the 4h, Miller bets 840,000, and they both call again.

Piccin says, “Ten,” implying that he has two pair, tens and nines. But Campanello turns over Ks9s to win the pot with trip nines, and the other players muck. Campanello takes down the pot worth about 4.4 million in chips to increase his lead.

Bryan Campanello  –  13,600,000  (113 bb)
Johnny Miller  –  6,200,000  (51 bb)
Ray Piccin  –  5,400,000  (45 bb)

A few minutes later at the same table, Chang Huang raises UTG+1 to 330,000, Campanello reraises from the cutoff to 650,000, and Huang calls. The flop comes Kd7c3c, and Huang moves all in for about 2 million.

Campanello calls with JhJs, and Huang turns over Ac8c for a flush draw with an overcard. The turn is the Jd, the river is the 9h, and Campanello wins the pot with a set of jacks to eliminate Huang in 18th place and increase his chip lead even further.

Bryan Campanello  –  16,750,000
Chang Huang  –  Out in 18th Place  ($8,642)
