WSOPC-1 Michael Maarup Eliminated in 2nd place ($11,125)

Michael Maarup (2nd: $11,125)

It was a heated head's up battle as the two remaining players exchanged the chip lead several times.

On the final hand it was as classic as it could get!

Maarup: [Qh][Qd]
Quach: [Ah][Kh]

What were massive hands for both players, especially heads up, came to a sudden death play as it was a coin-flip with the big pocket pair for Michael Maarup versus the suited ace-king of Huy Quach.

Unfortunately for our 2nd place finisher the board ran out: [As][6s][5c][5h][8d] and as a result Michael Marrup earns $11,125 for his efforts!

Event #14 Structure

WSOPC-1 Alex Greenblatt Eliminated in 3rd place ($8,040)

Alex Greenblatt made a standard raise from the button, the small blind of Huy Quach, made the call, and the big blind folded.

The flop came: [Qc][Jc][5c]

Huy checked.  Alex stuck out a continuation bet, and Huy re-raised all-in. Alex called and saw that he was drawing very thin!

Quach: [6c][4c]
Greenblatt: [Qh][Td]

It was certainly the ideal flop and situation for Huy who flopped the queen high flush, leaving Alex way behind to runner-runner full-house.  The turn gave Alex a glimmer of hope: [5s]!  Now any queen or five would give him the winner.  It was a river [7s] that gave Quach another final table knock out, this time it was Alex Greenblatt's exit in 3rd for $8,040!

WSOPC-1 Anthony Nguyen Eliminated in 4th place ($5,915)

After losing a sizeable pot the hand before, Anthony Nguyen moved all-in pre-flop when the button of Huy Quach put in a raise.  Huy made the call and Anthony was at risk!

Nguyen: [Qs][Qh]
Quach: [Ad][Js]

Anthony was in great shape to land a huge double up, but the Poker Gods had other plans as the board ran out [Ah][Ts][8c][Ks][5d]!  As a result of the pair of Aces for Huy, he now becomes the overwhelming chip leader, while Anthony Nguyen is congratulated by his final table members on a game well played finishing in 4th for $5,915!

WSOPC-1 Jesus Sanchez finishes in 5th place ($4,430)

From under the gun, Jesus Sanchez moved all-in for roughly 200,000 and was called by Huy Quach in the small blind.  The big blind folded, and the cards were tabled.

Sanchez: [Kh][Jd]
Quach: [Ah][Jh]

The flop was a great one for Jesus who was dominated pre-flop: [Qs][Td][6c]!  Sanchez couldn't have asked for a much better flop given the circumstances, but the turn decided things: [Kc] giving Huy Broadway (the nut straight)!  The river was an insignificant [2c] and it was a 5th place finish of $4,430 for Jesus Sanchez.

WSOPC-1 Kirt Suihkonen Eliminated in 6th place ($3,375)

Kirt Suihkonen shoved [Js][9d] from middle position and was called by the big blind who had [Ad][Qc].

The flop came [Jc][6d][2c], giving Suihkonen the lead in the hand. However, the turn came the [8c], giving Suihkonen's opponent a club flush draw as well as his over cards! The river came a [Tc] giving the player the queen high flush and knocking Suhkonen out in 6th for $3,375!

Catching up with him afterwards, he was qouted as saying, "Too tired to play today.  Played 13 1/2 hours yesterday."  There's always tomorrow Kirt.  Good game.

WSOPC-1 Cludo Georgiasdis Eliminated in 7th place ($2,615)

We didn't catch the action as it happened, but Cludo Georgiasdis was the third casualty of today's final table.

WSOPC-1 Tom Bocknyski Crippled, Eliminated in 8th Place ($2,060)

We didn't catch the hand that busted Tom Bocknyski, but we did see the one that did most of the damage to his stack. Jesus A. Sanchez was all in and at risk pre with [Ks][10d] against Tom Bocknyski's [Ax][Kx]. It was a brutal run out for Bocknyski's as it came down [Ah][Ac][3h][Jc][Qc], giving Jesus A. Sanchez broadway after Bockynski flopped trips.

WSOPC-1 Robert Gau Eliminated in 9th Place ($1,650)

Robert Gau came the final table as the shortest stack, so we knew he would be getting his chips in the middle shortly into play.  Sure enough, we quickly saw Gau all in and at risk with [Jd][Jh] against Mike Maarup’s [Ac][Qc]. Maarup nailed the flop of [Ad][Qd][9h] giving him top two. Gau needed a two outer, but the [8s] on the turn and the [6d] on the river completed the board, making Gau our first player eliminated today.
