Andrey Zhigalov saw a downward trend in chips all level, and has hit the rail at the hands of Timothy Frazin, now boasting a 300,000+ stack. Zhigalov was all in for his last <10,000 straight away with / and had to sit and watch Frazin, Frank Labate and Kenneth Po carry on through the streets. It was Po betting and the other two in the side pot calling until sixth street:
The three with active stacks now checked, and it was Franzin who bet the 6,000 after the river was dealt. Labate called; Frazin announced, "Straight to the seven," amidst headshakes from Po and Labate. He showed / to scoop the giant pot.
Spurring the current table break is the elimination of the runner up in last year's $1,500 Stud event, Stud and Stud Hi-Lo legend Jeff Lisandro. He has to settle for $2,437 this year, and wait for a new day to try for his seventh bracelet.
Timothy Frazin scored a double knockout of Lisandro and another opponent on the hand, hitting trip aces to beat out a missed straight draw for Lisandro, and kings up for the third player.
Frazin has one of the room's biggest stacks after the hand, sitting at 285,000.
Timoth Frazin: //
Julien Martini: //
Timothy Frazin stood up from the table and thought for a couple of minutes, contemplating whether to call Julien Martini on seventh street. Frazin finally made the call and wasn't happy with himself after Martini showed for two pair .
Frank Labate was given a spin early doors by Andrey Zhigalov (all in by fourth street - his cards were on their backs showing ). Labate picked up a third four on fifth street which was enough to take the modest pot.
"Why did I know you were going to play with me?" asked Labate of Zhigalov.
"I would play any two," Zhigalov replied.
"Any three," Labate corrected, to general amusement around the table.
David Prociak and Jean Gaspard arrived at the river with a sizable pot in the middle, and it was Prociak taking it down, showing . Prociak is now at 160,000 chips as play continues on Level 16.
Constantine Moustakis has won back some chips after dwindling from his start-of-day chip lead high point, taking a pot from Andrew Van Dervolgen.
"It's gone pretty rough all day, I can tell you," he said, "I came back with a pile of chips..."
His win of the 22,000 pot boosts his stack, but it's still beneath the 76,600 he came back with today.
