[user217945] • Level 28: 60,000-120,000, 0 ante

Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo

Over the course of the day Kevin LaMonica has been calling David Singer his nemesis. He has consistently lost pots to Singer and just before break, Singer took a massive pot of him with quad jacks. But LaMonica finally struck back against Singer in the last hand.

LaMonica: {X-}{X-}/{7-Clubs}{A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}/{x-}
Singer: {X-}{X-}/ {3-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}/{x-}

LaMonica completed with the {7-Clubs} and Singer raised. LaMonica reraised and Singer called. On fourth, LaMonica bet and Singer called. On fifth, LaMonica bet and Singer called. On sixth both players checked. On seventh street LaMonica decided to bet again and Singer called. LaMonica showed {K-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} for two pair and that was good to take the pot away from Singer.

"You're Playing Me, Don't Throw Anything Away"

[user196616] • Level 27: 50,000-100,000, 0 ante

Omaha Hi-Lo

David Singer raised on the button and Kevin LaMonica defended.

On the {Q-Spades}{10-Spades}{5-Spades} flop and {J-Spades} turn, LaMonica led out and was called.

Both players checked the {9-Clubs} river and LaMonica showed {9-}{8-}{8-}{6-} for a straight.

LaMonica was joyful as usual and chuckled as he said, "You're playing me, don't throw anything away."

Omaha Hi-Lo

Max Pescatori opened. From the small blind, Kevin LaMonica raised. Action folded back to Pescatori and he raised again. LaMonica called.

The flop was {9-Spades}{3-Clubs}{3-Spades} and LaMonica bet. Pescatori raised and LaMonica called. The turn was the {7-Spades} and LaMonica checked to Pescatori who moved all in. LaMonica called.

LaMonica: {A-Spades}{4-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{J-Spades}
Pescatori: {A-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}

Pescatori was in good shape to take at least half of the pot but the {5-Diamonds} on the river changed everything. LaMonica made a straight and a low and that was good to scoop the pot and to eliminate Pescatori from the tournament. He will have to wait for another day to lock up his fifth bracelet but will collect $62,733 for his fourth-place finish.
