Break For the Last Seven

• Ниво 24: 12,000-24,000, 0 ante

The remaining seven players have been sent into their second 15-minute break of the day.

Mark Zullo Eliminated in 8th Place ($16,986)

Aces don't seem to be the winning hand on this final table. All players who have departed so far fell while holding the bullets in their hands. That also applied to the most recent casualty, Mark Zullo.

Zullo was in the third position and he raised pot, leaving himself only 13,000 behind. Igor Sharaskin called from the big blind and put his opponent at risk when the {Q-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{A-Clubs} appeared in the middle of the table. Zullo had no option but call.

Mark Zullo: {A-Spades}{A-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}
Igor Sharaskin: {10-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}

Zullo had flopped the top set but he needed to fade another club to stay ahead. The dealer was against that, though as he revealed the {9-Clubs} on the turn, completing Sharaskin's flush draw. Zullo now hoped for the board pairing, but the {8-Diamonds} was a blank shot.

Mark Zullo walked away in the last hand before the break, taking $16,986 for eighth place. The remaining players are guaranteed at least $22,456.

Zullo Pays Off Groth

• Ниво 24: 12,000-24,000, 0 ante

Mark Zullo limped in from the cutoff, and Tyler Groth checked his option in the big blind. On the {K-Spades}{3-Clubs}{3-Hearts} flop, Groth checked, and Zullo bet 25,000 in order to pick up a call by Groth.

The same action repeated on the {2-Hearts} turn, with a check, a bet of 60,000, and a call, before Groth bet the {Q-Diamonds} river for 125,000.

Zullo was in the think tank for a minute and sighed, then called the bet with less than that behind. Groth announced a full house and rolled over {K-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} for kings over treys, which was good enough to win the pot.

Brown Spikes a Three

[user340093] • Ниво 24: 12,000-24,000, 0 ante

Neighbors on the final table, Mark Zullo and Adam Brown faced off in a pot while sitting in the blinds.

Zullo limped from the small blind, and Brown checked his option in the big. They both checked the {Q-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{7-Spades} flop, keeping the pot small.

The turn card was the {3-Hearts}, and Zullo bet 25,000. Brown called.

Zullo bet out another 60,000 on the {4-Diamonds} river, and he received a snap-call. Zullo showed a bluff with {A-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}, while Brown's {A-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{3-Spades} improved to a full house on the turn, likely making the call-down much easier for him.

Groth Takes from Zullo; Sharaskin from Taylor

• Ниво 24: 12,000-24,000, 0 ante

Mark Zullo raised to 55,000, and Tyler Groth three-bet the pot to 201,000 on the button. Zullo double-checked the remaining stack of Groth and called, before checking the {9-Spades}{5-Spades}{5-Diamonds} flop. Groth immediately moved all in, and Zullo folded after brief consideration to get shown {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}.

One hand later, Darren Taylor limped in, and Igor Sharaskin raised to 72,000, which Taylor called. The flop came {Q-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{3-Spades}, and Taylor checked. Sharaskin continued for 76,000, and that ended the hand right there.

Casey Carroll Eliminated in 9th Place ($13,026)

Right after the elimination of Bruno Politano, Casey Carroll raised the pot out of the small blind, and Tyler Groth reraised all in. Carroll called all in for slightly less.

Casey Carroll: {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{2-Hearts}
Tyler Groth: {A-Spades}{K-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}

"Oh my god," Groth sighed, but his emotions suddenly changed on the {K-Hearts}{J-Spades}{4-Spades} flop when he improved to a set. One ace remained in the deck, and Carroll also had a gutshot straight draw to avoid elimination. However, both the {9-Spades} turn and {6-Hearts} river were blanks.

The stacks were counted, and Carroll had 174,000. Groth had that covered with 230,000, and Carroll was eliminated in ninth place for $13,026. All eight remaining players are guaranteed at least $16,986 for their efforts now.

Bruno Politano Eliminated in 10th Place ($10,129)

Coming back for the final day with the shortest stack, Bruno Politano fought bravely but his tally eventually couldn't last longer than until the unofficial final table.

Politano's final hand started with Allan Le's open from the lowjack. Le raised to 52,000 and Politano shoved all in from the button. He cut his chips so that everyone could make a quick count, and it was 179,000 total. Le didn't hesitate and called.

Bruno Politano: {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{2-Spades}
Allan Le: {K-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{9-Spades}

Politano had aces but Le held double suited one-gappers, seeking a drawy flop to have a chance for the knockout.

Le got more than that as the dealer rolled over the {3-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}, hurting Politano's feelings. "He flopped a flush," Politano informed his fans in the rail, with a heart-broken voice.

The turn {7-Hearts} left Politano drawing that as he knew he was going to depart in 10th place before the {4-Spades} landed on the river. The 888 Ambassador picked up $10,129 for his efforts and the tournament continues with the official nine-handed final table.

Zarin Doubles Through Taylor

[user340093] • Ниво 24: 12,000-24,000, 0 ante

Still shaking after the recent massive encounter, Darren Taylor raised to 52,000 from the hijack, only to see button Jonathan Zarin move all in for 158,000.

Taylor asked for a count, then called, and the cards were turned over.

Jonathan Zarin: {K-Hearts}{K-Spades}{7-Spades}{J-Diamonds}
Darren Taylor: {A-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{J-Spades}{3-Spades}

Zarin's spades were higher Taylor's, strengthening his already-better hand. The board, however, wouldn't provide flush for any of the players, as only red cards hit the felt. The dealer revealed the {Q-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{7-Hearts}, improving Zarin's hand to a king-high straight.

Massive Double for Taylor

• Ниво 24: 12,000-24,000, 0 ante
Darren Taylor

In a three-way limped pot on a {5-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} flop, Tyler Groth in the small blind, Darren Taylor in the big blind, and Mark Zullo checked to see the {2-Clubs} on the turn. Groth checked, Taylor bet 26,000, and Zullo called before Groth also called. The {J-Clubs} on the river saw a bet of 100,000 by Groth and a fold by Taylor, who was shown {6-Clubs}{3-Clubs} for the straight flush by Groth.

The very next hand, Groth limped the button, and Taylor raised to 96,000 in the small blind. Groth called, and the flop fell {K-Spades}{8-Clubs}{6-Hearts}. Taylor checked, Groth bet 216,000, and Taylor subsequently check-raised all in. Groth asked for a count, and Taylor was at risk for 594,000, which Groth called by tossing in a single chip.

Darren Taylor: {K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}
Tyler Groth: {6-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}

"He got kings and the six. The guy is dead, let's fucking go," the British rail of Taylor said. Technically, Groth was not drawing dead but needed running treys for quads to avoid a huge setback. The {7-Spades} turn locked things up for Taylor, and the {4-Clubs} river was a mere formality.
