Hands #26-30: Chan Doubles Up, Morgenstern Chips Up

• Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Hand #26: Martin Jacobson raised to 125,000 in late position, Taylor Paur called in the cutoff and Ying Chan called in the big blind. On the {3-Clubs}{10-Spades}{5-Spades} flop, Chan moved all in for 725,000 and after some long thought, Jacobson called. Paur folded and the hands were tabled.

Ying Chan: {A-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}
Martin Jacobson: {K-Spades}{7-Spades}

Jacobson was behind with his flush draw, but the {7-Hearts} turn improved him to an inferior pair. There was no spade, seven or king on the {5-Clubs} river and Chan got the double-up.

Hand #27: Bart Lybaert raised to 125,000 in the cutoff and the remaining players folded.

Hand #28: Lybaert opened to 125,000 again from late position and took down the blinds and antes.

Hand #29: Michael Addamo completed in the small blind and Jacobson checked his option. They checked the {7-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{J-Spades} flop and Addamo checked again on the {J-Clubs} turn. Jacobson bet 105,000 and that was good for the pot.

Hand #30: Anton Morgenstern raised to 110,000 in the cutoff and Addamo made it 400,000 on the button. The blinds folded and Morgenstern called.

They checked all the way down on a board of {Q-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds} and Morgenstern's {A-Clubs}{A-Hearts} for top set was good.

Cate Hall Eliminated in 8th Place ($65,875)

• Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Cate Hall
Cate Hall

Hand #25: Cate Hall raised from the under-the-gun position and action folded to Michael Addamo in the hijack. Addamo sized up Hall's stack and then decided to three-bet to 275,000. Hall shoved and Addamo snap-called.

Cate Hall: {10-Hearts}{10-Spades}
Michael Addamo: {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}

The flop came {5-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{5-Spades} to give them both full houses, but Hall needed a ten to double up. The turn brought the {5-Clubs}, meaning Hall could also survive if an ace, king, or queen came to split the pot. The {J-Spades} on the river wasn't that, though, and she was eliminated in 8th place for $65,875.

Hand #23: Anton Morgenstern raised to 110,000 from the cutoff and Michael Addamo (button), Martin Jacobson (small blind), and Taylor Paur (big blind) all called.

Hand #24: Paur completed his small blind and Bart Lybaert raised to 250,000 from the big blind. Paur called. The flop came {q-Spades}{7-Hearts}{k-Spades}, Paur check-folded to the 300,000 bet of Lybaert.

Hand #14: Lybaert raised to 125,000 from mid-position and was called Addamo and Jacobson in the blinds. They all checked both the {6-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{8-Spades} flop and {7-Clubs} turn, and the {8-Hearts} came on the river. Addamo checked, Jacobson bet 150,000. Lybaert called and Addamo folded. Jacobson tabled {k-Spades}{7-Hearts} for two pair, eights and sevens, to take the pot down.

Ihar Soika Eliminated in 9th Place ($50,678)

• Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Ihar Soika
Ihar Soika

Hand #6: Mark Sleet raised to 115,000 in middle position and got calls from Jacobson in the small blind and Ihar Soika in the big blind. All three players checked the {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds} flop, and the turn brought the {8-Hearts}.

Jacobson led 300,000, Soika called and Sleet made it 900,000. Jacobson folded and Soika went into the tank. He counted out his chips and thought for a while, eventually moving all in for just shy of 2 million total.

His shove was met with a quick call from Sleet, who had him in bad shape with boat over boat.

Ihar Soika: {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}
Mark Sleet: {K-Spades}{K-Hearts}

The {5-Hearts} river was no help to Soika and he became the first casualty of the final table, taking $50,678 for his 9th-place finish.

Hands #4-5: Three-bets Take the Pot

• Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Hand #4: Martin Jacobson raised to 125,000 under the gun and Anton Morgenstern three-bet to 400,000 in the small blind. Michael Addamo got out of the way in the big blind and after a few moments of thought, Jacobson let it go.

Hand #5: Taylor Paur opened to 110,000 in early position, Bart Lybaert made it 340,000 in middle position, and it folded back to Paur. He let it go and Lybaert took the pot.

Hand #1: Taylor Paur raised to 110,000 from the cutoff and the rest of the table folded.

Hand #2: Anton Morgenstern raised to 110,000 from the under-the-gun position and the rest folded again.

Hand #3: Ihar Soika raised to 110,000 from mid-position and Paur folded. Bart Lybaert was next up to act in the hijack and he three-bet to 340,000. The others on his left folded so action was back on Soika who called.

The flop came {9-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}, and Soika check-called the 150,000 bet of Lybaert.

The turn was the {10-Spades}, and Soika checked once more. Lybaert continued with a bet of 675,000. Soika looked at Lybaert and then called after about 30 seconds.

The {7-Hearts} completed the board on the river. Soika checked for the last time. Lybaert considered his options for a while and then took three green 100,000-value chips off a stack and pushed forward the remaining stack as a bet. The dealer confirmed the bet was for 1,700,000. This sent Soika deep into the tank.

Soika looked at his cards again and at Lybaert. Another minute went by and Soika looked at the board and Lybaert. This went on for about another two minutes. He then glanced at his cards once more. He cut out calling chips and then counted the remainder of his green chips. He then looked to be making the call but hesitated. Soika continued to stare at Lybaert for another two minutes or so and then called.

Lybaert flipped over {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts} for the flopped full house, aces over nines. Soika mucked.
