• Level 32: 100,000-200,000, 200,000 ante

There was yet another three way all in and short stack Jerry Robinson had shoved with {q-Clubs}{j-Clubs}. He got two callers, one from Timothy Miles with {a-Spades}{k-Spades} and one from Adam Johnson with {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}.

The board ran out {k-Hearts}{3-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} and Robinson made his way to the exit and Johnson collected the pot.

Deeb Gets Lucky in Three-Way All in to Take the Chip Lead

• Level 31: 80,000-160,000, 160,000 ante
Shaun Deeb
Shaun Deeb

Christopher Fisher opened the button and Martin Carnero three-bet all in from the small blind. Shaun Deeb was in the big blind and he went all in too. Back on Fisher and he overcalled, making it a three-way all in.

Shaun Deeb: {a-Spades}{q-Spades}
Christopher Fisher: {q-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}
Martin Carnero: {a-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}

Fisher was looking good to eliminate two. Nothing untoward happened on the {4-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{5-Spades} flop. The turn was the {3-Spades}, giving Deeb a flush draw and a deuce for a wheel straight but instead it was an {a-Clubs}, giving Deeb a full triple up and leaving Carnero extremely short and Fisher in trouble too.

Devin Looney Eliminated in 19th Place

• Level 31: 80,000-160,000, 160,000 ante

Devin Looney has hit the rail, one place of a money ladder and that signals another table redraw.

Looney moved all in blind versus blind and Sergio Aguilar tanked before finding a call.

Devin Looney: {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts}
Sergio Aguilar: {k-Spades}{10-Hearts}

The {k-Hearts}{6-Spades}{a-Hearts} flop hit for both players but Looney still had the advantage. The {9-Diamonds} was safe too, but he couldn't dodge the {10-Clubs} on the river, to give Aguilar two-pair.

Jonathan Tamayo

Sergio Martiaguilar moved all in from the cutoff and Jonathan Tamayo, next to act, moved all in for less and the blinds folded.

Jonathan Tamayo: {6-Spades}{6-Diamonds}
Sergio Martiaguilar: {j-Hearts}{j-Clubs}

The board ran out {5-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{9-Spades}{k-Clubs}{10-Hearts}, which was no help to Tamayo and he was eliminated.

Steve Kelly Eliminated in 21st Place ($18,586)

• Level 30: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante
Steven Kelly
Steven Kelly

Steve Kelly moved all in and was called by Carlos Chang on his left. No one else wanted to get involved and they spun their cards on their backs.

Carlos Chang: {9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}
Steven Kelly: {a-Hearts}{a-Spades}

Chang was surprised to find out that he was in such bad shape and it was looking like he was going to take a hit when the flop came {7-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{j-Clubs}, although he'd picked up a gutshot, giving him six outs in total. The {4-Diamonds} turn was no help but a {9-Clubs} on the river was and Chang looked dumbfounded. Kelly seemed quite calm as he got up to collect his winnings.
