Porter Doubles Through Hughes

zedmaster84 • Level 32: 120,000-240,000, 0 ante

Rep Porter raised to 500,000 in the cutoff and Loren Klein in the big blind came along to see a flop of {K-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{6-Spades}. Klein checked and Porter's bet of 600,000 forced a fold.

Soon after, Brandon Shack-Harris raised to 500,000 first to act and Ryan Hughes three-bet the pot to 1,740,000 in the small blind, Shack-Harris folded.

Hughes limped the button the next hand and Porter filled up from the small blind, Shack-Harris checked the big blind. On the {J-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{6-Hearts} flop, Porter bet 700,000 and Shack-Harris folded. Hughes reraised the pot and Porter called all in for 2,260,000.

Rep Porter: {A-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{8-Spades}{8-Clubs}
Ryan Hughes: {Q-Hearts}{J-Spades}{9-Hearts}{4-Clubs}

The {7-Clubs} turn and {2-Spades} river ensured that the kicker played and Porter doubled, sending Hughes to the bottom of the leader board.

Wong Doubles Through Klein

Webjoker • Level 32: 120,000-240,000, 0 ante

Jerry Wong opened to 600,000 under the gun and his neighbor, Loren Klein in the cutoff, tanked for a bit before he called. The remaining players got out of the way.

Wong bet pot for 1,960,000 with 640,000 behind on {3-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{7-Clubs}. Klein moved in and Wong instantly called.

Jerry Wong: {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{2-Spades}
Loren Klein: {Q-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}

The {7-Hearts} on the turn did nothing and the {10-Spades} on the river didn't make a difference either. Double up for Wong who's now playing 7.3 million while Klein remains in the lead with 7.6 million.

Loren Klein made it 500,000 to go from the cutoff and Scott Bohlman three-bet the pot from the button. Action folded back to Klein and he checked for Bohlman's stack size, who counted it out for 2,050,000 in total. Klein gave it some thought and put together calling chips for the pot size, which was 1,860,000 in total. That almost prompted Bohlman to turn over his cards, Klein stopped him when a queen had flashed already.

"I'd be really mad when a queen comes," Klein joked and then he and Bohlman rooted for a queen.

On the {8-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{3-Spades} flop, Klein moved all in and Bohlman called it off.

Scott Bohlman: {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{8-Clubs}
Loren Klein: {K-Spades}{7-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{4-Spades}

"Wow, I have a live king. Come on, let's have a five on the turn, I helped you out before," Klein added and Bohlman indeed asked for a five after with a grin on the face.

The {6-Spades} appeared on the turn and Klein said "wow, that's almost a five, spades is even better."

After the {5-Diamonds} river, Klein indeed got there with a straight and Bohlman was eliminated in 6th place for $157,097.

Hughes Scores Runner-Runner Miracle

zedmaster84 • Level 32: 120,000-240,000, 0 ante

Out of the small blind, Ryan Hughes raised the pot to 720,000 and Rep Porter in the big blind three-bet the pot, Hughes called all in for his 2,290,000 and the cards were tabled.

Ryan Hughes: {Q-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{7-Spades}
Rep Porter: {K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{4-Spades}

"Stuff and a bit, a classic Omaha race," Loren Klein joked in table chat. The flop fell {5-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} and Hughes needed runner-runner outs to avoid elimination. The {J-Clubs} turn was one of them and he indeed got there with the {7-Clubs} river to hit the better two pair, double with jacks and sevens.
