Mizrachi and Fitoussi Chop Abecassis' Money

We got to the table in time to see Michael Mizrachi, Bruno Fitoussi, and Michel Abecassis all commit 21,800 before the flop.

The dealer brought forth {2-Spades}{3-Clubs}{Q-Hearts} and Mizrachi wasted no time announcing that he was all in as he had both of his opponents covered in chips. Fitoussi replied by calling all in for his tournament life. Abecassis got out of the way and the hands were shown to find that Mizrachi was ahead.

Mizrachi: {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{4-Spades}
Fitoussi: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{5-Spades}

The turn was the {A-Spades}, which gave Fitoussi additional spade outs, but the {4-Diamonds} peeled off on the river, giving both players the wheel and forcing them to chop the pot.

Micah Smith out in 18th

Joe Hachem is in strong contention with just 17 players left after he just knocked out Micah Smith. The 2005 WSOP Main Event champion raised pre flop and was called by Ran Azor and Smith, who was in the big blind.

The flop came down {A-Spades}{3-Hearts}{6-Clubs} and Smith checked to Hachem who bet 4,500. Azor folded and Smith raised all in for right around 17,000. Hachem called.

Showdown:
Joe Hachem: {7-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{3-Spades}
Micah Smith: {A-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{10-Spades}{3-Diamonds}

The turn was the {6-Spades} and Hachem hit his full house. The river was the {10-Hearts} and Smith was knocked out.

Straight For Mercier

We caught up to find Jason Mercier and Sam Chartier looking down at a board that read {J-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}. Mercier bet 8,900 and Chartier quickly dipped into his stack and came out with calling chips.

The dealer tapped the table and brought forth the {8-Hearts} to complete the board. Mercier pondered for a moment before checking and Chartier checked behind.

"Straight," announced Mercier, tabling {J-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}. Chartier mucked his hand and Mercier dragged in the pot, bringing his stack just shy of the hundred thousand mark.

Kings In The Corning

We found four players looking down at a flop of {K-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{8-Spades}. Ran Azor checked to Micah Smith who also checked. Douglas Corning fired 7,000 and Joe Hachem got out of the way.

Azor called the bet and Smith decided to stick around as well to see the {3-Hearts} fall on fourth. There were two checks to Smith once again and this time he moved 25,000 into the middle. Azor got out of the way and Smith looked Corning up and down before announcing that he was all in, which actually was a bet for Corning's tournament life. Corning was all in for a total of 63,000.

Corning quickly called and showed {K-Clubs}{K-Spades}{7-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} for top set. Smith sighed and tabled {K-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{5-Clubs}.

The {2-Clubs} completed the board and Corning was able to scoop a massive double up.

Jan-Peter Jachtmann
Jan-Peter Jachtmann

Right after losing Aubin Cazals we also had to say goodbye to $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha winner Jan-Peter Jachtmann. Jani Sointula raised under the gun to 2,700 after which Jachtmann moved all in for just 6,000 chips. The action was folded back around to Sointula who called right away.

Showdown:
Jani Sointula: {K-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{4-Spades}{3-Diamonds}
Jan-Peter Jachtmann: {J-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{6-Clubs}

The board ran out {A-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{J-Spades}{5-Hearts} and Jachtmann was knocked out. We are down to 18 players and there will be a full redraw at this point.

Selbst Takes Care of Cazals

[user20283]

Vanessa Selbst had just eliminated French pro Aubin Cazals, and she was kind enough to tell us what happened. Selbst raised to 2,500 from the hijack after which Cazals made it 9,300 from the cutoff. Selbst called.

The flop brought out {8-}{5-}{2-} and Selbst put Cazals all in for his final 6,300. The Frenchman called it off and showed {A-Spades}{A-}{6-Spades}{6-}, and he was up against {9-}{7-}{7-}{2-} double suited.

The turn was a {K-} and the river a {6-} giving Selbst a straight. Cazals, who won the $5,000 Mixed Max bracelet this past summer was knocked out while Selbst added some more chips to her stack. She is going for her second bracelet this year after winning the $2,500 10-Game.
