Level 18: 2500/5K/ 500 ante

Hand for hand, 19 handed play lasts for over 40 minutes. Finally a player on the button shoves his short stack of 24K and gets looked up by Michael Laake (Sarasota, FL). The cards are:

Laake 10d8d
Opponent QcJc

The board is not kind to the all-in player as it comes 10h7h5d3d9s to burst the bubble when Laake makes his pair of 10s on the flop to eliminate his opponent in 19th place.

All remaining 18 players are now in the money and have consolidated onto 3 tables!

Event 13: Top pair, Top draw

Level 17: 2K/4K/ 500 ante

On a 8d9dJc flop, Dolphy Garricks (Miramar, FL) re-shoves his stack to isolate a player who’s already all-in. The cards are tabled:

Garricks: AdJd
Opponent: KsJc

Garricks has top pair and top kicker and has the nut flush draw. The turn and river bring 4d6c to complete Garricks’ flush and knock out his opponent in 20th place.

Event 13: I’ll show you, but just one time

$350 Buy-In Big Stack Six-Max No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 17: 2K/4K/ 500 ante

Morris Heider bets out 11K from the cutoff position. Dolphy Garricks (Miramar, FL) has the button, and makes the call directly to Heider’s left. The flop comes 9s6hJd and Heider checks. Garricks then fires out 13K. Heider mucks. Garricks then says “I’ll show you just this one time, but that’s it” as he turns over the Jh to prove he wasn’t bluffing. Garricks is sitting on about 250K (~63bbs). Nice and neighborly, that’s what poker is all about.

24 players remain in Event 13, paying top 18.
