Paul Kuchinski made his move on a flop of 3 10 3 and got the call from Jason Tolpin who had A 3. Paul had the K 4 and needed any to help him out. Unfortunately the 10 on the turn tossed out his outs and Paul Kuchinski finished 5th earning $2,400.

Jack Boghossian just got busted on a nasty hand. He re-raised Jason Tolpin with the rest of his chips and Jason called showing Q J. Jack was way ahead with A J and the flop came 10 9 5. The turn was a 7, giving Jason the extra out with an 8. Guess what shows? an 8 on the river and Jack Boghossian is out in 6th earning $1,965.

The man only known as Icman, raised on the button with Mario Rivas in the big blind. Mario makes a move all in for an extra 26k. Iceman tanks for a minute and makes the call only to see he's ahead with A J, while Mario has A 6o. The flop is Q K K. The turn is the Q giving the freeroll to Icman. The river is the 2 and Iceman defeats Mario Rivas who finished 7th earning $1,525.

Marisol Banuelos just got crippled. She commited 80% of her stack against the shorter stack of Ray Hariri who had J J to Marisol's A 10. The board was 10 6 3 3 9 and Marisol was left with 10k.
Marisol had to commit 3k to the big blind and Tamara Bostrom moved all in. Nick Hanna decided to move in too and we have a three way race with Marisol holding K J, Tamara Bostrom holding A 7, and Nick held A Q. The flop gave hope to Marisol with 10 3 K, but the turn was the nail in the coffin for the two ladies. The J gave Nick the straight and Marisol Banuelos finished 9th earning $875.
Tamara Bostrom finished 8th earning $1,090.

2 hands after the break, Jack Bogosian got his money in against two other players. The two players held pocket 8's and pocket 7's, while Jack had the Jack's. The board read 2 5 10 K K and Jack sent home two players.
Right after Jack put 2 down, Jason Tolpin pushed his opponent all in o a flop of 9 4 2. His opponent called showing the Q J and Jason held 9 6. The turn was a 6, killing his opponent and we are now down to 11 players. 2 away from the money.

Tamra Bostrom just put her stack in against two other players. The first player was trying to bluff and had 3 5. The second player had A J, and Tamra had the rockets. The board read 9 Q J 4 K and Tamra took out the two slightly smaller stacks and she's up to 30k.

Blinds are 600-1,200 with a 200 ante.
I didn't see the action unfold, but I did see Nick Hanna with an A Q in front of him and his opponent had pocket Queens. The board read K 9 A K 3. Nick doubled up to around 45k.
Monday, 11th of June 2007 11:15 PM
Jason Tolpin has lost about 7k of his stack, but only from the normal blinds and antes. He's grown quite restless in the past 20 minutes or so.

Mo Fathipour just got busted when he moved all in against the BB on the river. The BB flipped up K K and Mo mucked and walked out.

Not too many people at table 17 were happy to see that the chip leader, Jason Tolpin came to their table after his was broken down. We are at 4 tables with 28 people left in the tournament. The play is slowing down a bit with everyone holding a decent stack.
Monday, 11th of June 2007 10:21 PM
Blinds are at 300-600 with a 100 ante.
The chip leader by a landslide right now is Jason Tolpin with 50k.

"Hollywood" Tony Kayden must have some e.s.p. or something. While the dealer is shuffling up, Tony stands up and announces that he feels that this hand would be his all in hand. He sits down and has a player raise it up. He peeks down at the pocket Queens and announces he's all in. The rest of the table folds to the initial raise and he calls, showing A K. The flop is good for tony...7 8 4. The turn actually pops out an A and the river is just overkill with another A. Tony Kayden is gone.
Monday, 11th of June 2007 09:42 PM
Blinds are up to 200-400 with a 75 ante.
Mo Fathipour is still in. I haven't mentioned him before now because of the nature in which he came in. He got here in the third round and immediately moved all in with A K and his oponent had the same hand. Chop pot! Then, they moved him to a new table and he was there for about 15 minutes before he was moved AGAIN!

We are down to roughly 45 players with 5 tables still running. The mood has changed a bit in the past 30 or so minutes, from a jovial bunch to an almost cut throat group. I'm near Hollywood, so we probably have some aspiring actors that could get a good job in town.

The talk at the tables are all to do with Phil Hellmuth winning his 11th bracelet. He now stands alone atop the bracelet race.
Monday, 11th of June 2007 08:56 PM
Eddy Choi is doing the best. He currently holds on to a 20k stack, roughly.

So far, I see "Hollywood" Tony Kayden, James Carroll and one other player who has had some success in the past week or so. Mike Hauptman won event #13 which was a pot limit hold'em tourney. He then Parlayed his money into the WSOP pot limit hold'em event and came in 12th and cashed $21,512! He hopes to keep up the success!
Monday, 11th of June 2007 07:07 PM
I love no limit! We just lost our first player of the tournament. We must have a chip leader, so I'll keep up with his prgress over the next couple of minutes.
