Milas Gets There

[user127999] • Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Eric Milas open shoved from under the gun for 168,000 and Bob Bounahra made the call from the big blind.

Bounahra showed {9-Clubs}{9-Spades} while Milas turned over {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}, and appeared it was all Bounahra on the {9-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{8-Spades} flop. However, Milas picked up a flush draw on the {4-Diamonds} turn, and got there on the {a-Diamonds} river to double up.

Dan Alspach - 13th Place

Dan Alspach shipped all in for 53,000 under the gun, and Jeff Gross made the call. Dominik Nitsche raised to 125,000, and action folded back to Gross. He went into the tank for a couple of minutes before folding.

"I should be beating you," Nitsche said, turning over {a-Hearts}{9-Hearts}.

"You're not beating me," Alspach said, showing {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}. "You have two overs."

The dealer spread the flop: {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}.

"Now, you're beating me good," Alspach observed dryly.

The {8-Diamonds} brought a sweat by giving Alspach a flush draw, but the {10-Clubs} river didn't improve him and he was eliminated.

Thayer Rasmussen opened the betting to 35,000 before Bob Bounahra three-bet, making it 125,000. Mickey Petersen then went deep in the tank on the button before calling all in for less.

Rasmussen stepped aside and it was Bounahra's {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs} versus Petersen's {k-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}. The board came {2-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{4-Spades}{k-Hearts}{3-Hearts}, and Petersen's short stack was shipped over to Bounahra.

Thayer Rasmussen raised to 35,000 in early position, and Louis Campbell pushed all in for about 160,000. Erwann Pecheux asked for a count before shoving from the big blind, and Rasmussen quickly folded.

Campbell: {q-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
Pecheux: {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}

Pecheux had Campbell dominated, and the {k-Hearts}{6-Spades}{a-Clubs} switched Campbell's outs from tens to jacks. The {7-Hearts} turn and {2-Hearts} river didn't save him, and he collected a 15th-place ticket.

D'Alesandro Doubles

[user127999] • Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Mickey Petersen opened with a raise and Dave D'Alesandro came over the top all in for 161,000 total.

It folded back to Petersen who made the quick call with {a-Diamonds}{q-Spades}. D'Alesandro had him out-kicked though, and his {a-Spades}{k-Clubs} cleaned up after an {8-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{9-Spades}{9-Diamonds} board was revealed.

With that, Petersen is in shove-or-fold mode and D'Alesandro is looking healthy again.

Billy Horan pushed all in from the cutoff, and David Lucchesi called off for less on the button.

Horan: {a-Spades}{9-Spades}
Lucchesi: {k-Diamonds}{j-Spades}

Lucchesi had live cards, but it was brick city on the {10-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{4-Spades}{7-Spades} board.

"Well, I made $3,000 by folding," Dan Alspach said, laying the empathy on thick.

Thayer Rasmussen is in good position to take down the bracelet.

A tough and experienced field of 16 remains, ready to fight for a first-place prize of $335,000 here at Event #21: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em. Former November Niner Bob Bounahra leads the way with just over 1,000,000, while online pro Thayer "THAY3R" Rasmussen is hot on his heels with 933,000.

While the remaining field is predominantly American, there will be plenty of European flavor as well, featuring sponsored pros Erwann Pecheux (France, 258,000 in chips), Mickey Peterson (Denmark, 231,000), as well as World Series of Poker Circuit national champ Dominik Nitsche (Germany, 707,000) and David Burt (UK, 237,000).

Cards are set to be in the air at 1 p.m. local time, and we're coming back to Level 22 (8,000/16,000/2,000), meaning over half of the field will be under 20 big blinds. So, expect the action to be hot out of the gate and don't go anywhere as we bring you all of the relevant updates right here on PokerNews until a champion is crowned.
