Another Double For Robl

[user20283] • Level 9: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Andrew Robl's week has been quite interesting so far. He was the first player to bust out of the $100,000 event, rebought, and won the tournament. Today he was also among the first to be eliminated, he once again rebought and is now in great shape after doubling up again.

The flop read {Q-Hearts}{5-Spades}{7-Spades} when we saw 35,000 out in front of Robl while Kurganov had put out 85,000.

"I'm all in," Robl announced after a while and Kurganov made the call.

Robl showed {7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} for a flopped set and he got up from the table to sweat the turn and river versus Kurganov's {Q-Hearts}{2-Hearts}.

The turn brought the {6-Spades} and the river the {10-Hearts} giving Robl another double up.

Gruissem Eliminated, Seidel Back in the Hunt

[user68268] • Level 8: 6,000-12,000, 1,000 ante

Philipp Gruissem just raised to 25,000 and Erik Seidel decided to move all in for exactly 200,000 chips from the small blind. Gruissem took a look at his stack, did some counting, and made the call.

Gruissem: {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}
Seidel: {K-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}

The board ran out {3-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{K-Spades} and the river kept Seidel alive. Gruissem was left with just 42,000 chips and those went into the pot two hands later. Gruissem moved all in from the small blind for and Paul Phua called the little raise from the big.

Gruissem: {J-Clubs}{9-Hearts}
Phua: {A-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}

The board ran out {9-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{A-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} and that was it for the German top pro.
