Jeremie Sarda Eliminated in 21st Place ($19,997)

[user217945] • Level 23: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante
Jeremie Sarda
Jeremie Sarda

Jeremie Sarda and Bart Lybaert discussed some of the action that led up to Sarda's elimination. On the flop of {Q-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{7-Clubs}, Sarda was facing off against Ihar Soika. Sarda said he check-raised a bet from Soika and Soika called.

The turn was the {7-Diamonds} and now, Sarda checked to Soika who put out a bet, and Sarda only called.

On the {6-Clubs} river, Sarda checked a third time and Soika moved all in with a covering stack. That's when we picked up the action.

Sarda was in the tank for over five minutes as he was thinking through the hand for all of his chips, and finally after a long time in the tank, he decided to call.

Soika turned over his {9-Clubs}{8-Clubs} for the stone cold nuts, a straight flush. This released a series of gasps from the rest of the table. Sarda could only muster {A-Clubs}{5-Clubs} for the nut flush. Sarda appeared as if he might get away from the huge cooler, but couldn't quite get there. Instead, he hits the rail in 21st place and will collect $19,997 for his run in this event.

The rest of the board was completed with the {3-Diamonds} on the turn and the {a-Diamonds} on the river. Not enough help for Azzaro as he was sent to the payout desk in 22nd place.

Vincent Arevalo Eliminated in 23rd Place ($19,997)

Vincent Arevalo
Vincent Arevalo

In a series of two hands, Vincent Arevalo found himself on the rail.

In the first hand, Hiep Doan opened with a raise to 65,000 and he was called by Vincent Arevalo in the small blind and Ying Chan in the big blind.

The flop came down {Q-Spades}{8-Hearts}{7-Spades} and Arevalo came out firing with a bet of 165,000. Chan called from the big blind.

The turn was the {3-Diamonds} and Arevalo bet again, making it 255,000. Chan called once more.

On the {8-Diamonds} river, Arevalo bet once more, this time making it 385,000. Chan raised, making it 800,000 and thinking that Chan had called, Arevalo turned up his cards.

"You're good," Arevalo said, showing {A-Spades}{9-Spades} for a missed flush draw. But since Chan had raised, Arevalo just folded his hand, and Chan didn't have to go to showdown.

Just a few hands later, Arevalo got it in with {A-}{J-} against the {A-}{K-} of Mike Addamo. The board ran out {K-Hearts}{9-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{6-Hearts} and Addamo held up with his kings to send Arevalo to the rail.

Jonathan Abdellatif was eliminated in unknown action. We do know from the floor staff, and from Abdellatif himself, that he got it all in preflop with {A-}{6-} against the {A-}{J-} for Ihar Soika.

Soika held up through the flop turn and river and he would send Abdellatif to the rail in 24th place to collect $19,997.

The flop came {9-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{k-Clubs}, Jacobson check-raised the 225,000 bet of Davidow to 575,000. Davidow looked at Jacobson and called.

The turn brought them the {a-Clubs}, Jacobson checked again. Davidow did the same.

The {8-Spades} on the river completed the board, Jacobson bet 750,000 and Davidow called with {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds}. Jacobson tabled {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds} for the bigger flopped set of jacks to win the pot.

Picking up the action on the turn the board was {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{Q-Clubs} and action was on Mark Sleet. Sleet put out a bet of 175,000 and that put Yin Wu into the tank. He thought for quite some time before moving all in for just 245,000 more. Sleet thought through the hand for a bit, then eventually decided to call.

Mark Sleet: {K-Diamonds}{10-Spades}
Yin Wu: {J-Spades}{J-Diamonds}

Sleet had the best of it on the turn with his trip tens and he held on through the {4-Diamonds} river as well. Wu was sent to the rail in 25th place and collected $19,997 for his finish.
