Toby Lewis - 22nd Place
Toby Lewis - 22nd Place

We are being told that a short-stacked Toby Lewis raised on the button and James Akenhead re-raised enough from the big to put Lewis all in. Lewis called.

Lewis: {6-}{6-}
Akenhead: {A-}{10-}

The flop ran out {K-}{K-}{3-}{10-}{3-}, leaving Lewis with an inferior two-pair and eliminating him from the tournament.

Frey: {K-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}

Ben Tollerene Eliminated in 23rd Place ($13,368); Sean Getzwiller Advances!

• Level 3: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante
Ben Tollerene - 23rd Place
Ben Tollerene - 23rd Place

With the board reading {Q-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{4-Spades} we found Ben Tollerene shoving his last 121,500 into the pot from the big blind against Sean Getzwiller.

Getzwiller contemplated for a while before eventually making the call and tabling his {J-Spades}{10-Hearts}. Tollerene shook his head and tabled his {8-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} for an elaborate bluff to fall in 23rd place while earning $13,368 in the process.

As Getzwiller secures his second WSOP final table for the series after winning Event #8: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em, he detailed to us that Tollerene kept barrelling into him - including a 40,000-chip bet on the turn - before eventually falling one place shy of a WSOP final table berth.

Seidel Doubles Through Frey

[user196942]

Erik Seidel raised to 7,000 from the button and Kyle Frey went all-in for 104,000 from the small blind. The big blind folded and Seidel called off his remaining 60,000.

Seidel: {10-Clubs}{10-Spades}
Frey: {A-Spades}{10-Hearts}

"Nice hand," Frey offered to Seidel.

The {J-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{J-Diamonds} board was safe for Seidel and he doubled up to about 130,000.

Frey is down to his last 40,000.

Gareth Teatum Eliminated in 24th Place ($13,368)

• Level 3: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante
Gareth Teatum - 24th Place
Gareth Teatum - 24th Place

A short-stacked Gareth Teatum has just been eliminated by Justin Bonomo after a preflop raising war saw Teatum all in from the small blind.

Teatum: {6-Spades}{6-Clubs}
Bonomo: {A-Spades}{K-Clubs}

With a classic coin-flip on the cards, the {K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} flop put Bonomo squarely in the lead. However ZeeJustin wasn't content with that, and was happy for the overkill as the turn and river ran out the {A-Hearts} and {A-Clubs} to end Teatum's tournament in 24th place.

Toby Lewis slips against fellow countryman James Akenhead

James Akenhead opened the button to 6,000 only to have Toby Lewis three-bet the small blind. The action returned to Akenhead who pushed for 143,500 and Lewis made the call.

Lewis: {A-Spades}{10-Hearts}
Akenhead: {A-Hearts}{J-Clubs}

The board was spread {5-Spades}{6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{7-Spades} to see Akenhead win this battle of the Brits as he doubles to 292,000 while leaving Lewis on just 42,000 in chips.

Marc Inizan Eliminated in 25th Place ($13,368)

Marc Inizan - 25th Place
Marc Inizan - 25th Place

Marc Inizan pushed his short-stack all in from the button and Mark Radoja made the call from the big blind.

Inizan: {A-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}
Radoja: {10-Spades}{10-Hearts}

With Inizan trailing, the {8-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{3-Hearts} flop gave him additional outs to a third nine, but when the {3-Diamonds} and {4-Clubs} fell on the turn and river, he was forced to farewell the tournament in 25th place while leaving Radoja and Yasuhiro Waki in a fairly even heads-up battle.
