The Final Three Agree to a Deal, Victor Kruglov Is The Champion

With Victor Kruglov holding over 75% of the chips in play, the final three players started to work out making a deal. After the chips were counted, and Kruglov gave some extra cash to the other two, a deal was struck. Kruglov will take home nearly first place money, $90,300, for his impressive victory tonight. Scroll down for a breakdown of the chip chop, and congratulations to all three players on their big scores!

1. Victor Kruglov $90,300
2. Milton "AJ" Armstrong - $54,405
3. Arash Sarrah - $44,880

Sean O'Neill Eliminated in 4th Place ($26,225)

Victor Kruglov raised to 1.25 million on the button, and Sean O'Neill moved all in for just under ten million. Kruglov quickly called with [Ac][8h], and he would need some help against the [Jh][Jc] of O'Neill.

The flop of [10d][9d][8c] gave Kruglov bottom pair, and that would improve to two pair on the [Ad] turn. A six completed the board, and Kruglov scored the knockout to give him an overwhelming chip lead three handed.

Tri Nguyen Eliminated in 5th Place ($21,035)

Action folded to Tri Nguyen in the small blind, and he raised to 1.25 million. Victor Kruglov was in the big blind, and he moved all in, having Nguyen covered by quite a bit. Nguyen thought for about 20 seconds before saying "ok let's do it I call."

Nguyen: [Ks][6c]
Kruglov: [9h][9d]

Nguyen got some help on the [7h][6d][5d] flop, but he would get no further assistance, as the board finished out [3h] and [8d].

Nguyen, who did his best to liven up the table in the wee hours of the morning tonight, will take home $21,035 for his efforts, while Krugalov is in a great position, holding half of the chips in play four handed.

Sarrah Doubles Through Nguyen

Action folded around to the small blind Arash Sarrah, and he moved all in. Tri Nguyen snap called from the big blind, and confidently turned over [As][Jc]. However, he found himself dominated by the [Ah][Kh] of Sarrah. The flop of [Kd][7d][2h] virtually ended the hand, but of course it's never that easy, as the [Qs] hit the turn to give Nguyen a shot at a miracle runner runner broadway straight.

Instead, a third king came on the river, and Sarrah doubled up to nearly seven million while Nguyen dropped down to about 14 million.

Chip Counts From the Final Five

Blinds: 200,000-400,000 Average: 13,500,000

Sean O'Neill - 20,100,000
Tri Nguyen - 18,000,000
Milton Armstrong - 16,500,000
Victor Kruglov - 13,100,000
Arash Sarrah - 5,200,000

Peter Pellicer Eliminated in 6th Place ($16,120)

Action started with Tri Nguyen raising it up in early position. Peter Pellicer moved all in from the small blind, and Nguyen made the call for nearly all of his stack.

Pellicer: [Kd][Qs]
Nguyen: [Ah][4h]

Nguyen's ace high was in the lead, and he would keep that lead throughout the runout of [10d][10h][6d][6c][8h].

Krugalov Scores Big Double Through Nguyen

Action started with Arash Sarrah raising to 1.1 million in the cutoff. Chip leader Tri Nguyen called on the button, and Victor Kruglov responded with a three bet to 3.2 million. Sarrah tank folded, but Nguyen quickly called to see a flop of [9c][7d][5s].

Kruglov wasted little time in moving all in, and Nguyen let out a big sigh before lifting his cards up, and saying "ok let's go I call."

Kruglov: [As][Ac]
Nguyen: [9s][8s]

Kruglov's overpair was in the lead, but he still had plenty of outs to dodge from Nguyen. The [Qh] turn killed any backdoor out potential, and the [3h] on the river kept the aces in the lead for the win. Kruglov doubled up in to the chip lead with over 20 million, while Nguyen is down to about eight million.

Sarrah Doubles Through Pellicar

We had a second all in and call in as many hands right after Wayne Perry busted, but this time, the short stack was able to double up. That short stack was Arash Sarrah, and he was all in holding [Ac][Qc]. He was racing against the [10h][10d] of Pellicar, and the flop brought plenty of action, coming down [Kc][9c][5h]. This gave Sarrah the nut flush draw, but he wouldn't need it, as the [As] on the turn gave him top pair.

No miracles on the river meant that Sarrah doubled up to nearly 10 million while Pellicar dropped to 8.3 million.

Wayne Perry Eliminated in 7th Place ($11,780)

Wayne Perry took a few hits to his stack after the break, and his final chips went over to Tri Nguyen, who is now up to 14 million after scoring that knockout.

This leaves us with just six players. As of yet, there haven't been any talks of a chop.

Fresh Counts From the Final Seven

Blinds: 150,000-300,000 Average: 9,650,000

Sean O'Neill - 16,100,000
Tri Nguyen - 11,700,000
Pedro Pellicar - 12,000,000
Victor Kruglov - 11,500,000
Wayne Perry - 7,000,000
Milton "AJ" Armstrong - 6,900,000
Arash Sarrah - 5,300,000

Ahmad Hooshmand Eliminated in 8th Place ($9,065)

On the very next hand, Ahmad Hooshmand moved all in holding [4h][4s], and Wayne Perry looked him up with [Ah][6h]. Perry shot out to the lead on a flop of [8h][7c][6d], and Hooshmand wasn't able to make a straight or a set from there, knocking him out in eighth place.

The final seven players are taking a break now. We will post updated chip stacks shortly.

Pellicar Doubles Through Hooshmand

Ahmad Hooshmand and Pedro Pellicar got into a raising war preflop that saw all of Pellicar's chips get into the middle. It was the classic preflop cooler, as Hooshmand held [Kc][Kh], while Pellicar had [Ad][Ah]. The board came down [Qh][9d][2s][10d][8d], and the aces held for Pellicar to score him a big double up to over 12 million, while Hooshmand is now down to about ten big blinds.

Wednesday, June 26, 2019

Jonathan Rosenthal Eliminated in 9th Place ($7,150)

Jonathan Rosenthal moved all in from early position, and action folded around to Wayne Perry in the small blind. Not realizing that a player was all in, Perry tossed in a chip to complete the small blind. After the dealer and other players told him there was a player who was all in, Perry attempted to muck his hand, folding his cards short of the muck so that they were easily retrievable.

At this point, multiple players at the table told everyone to stop so that the floor could come over and make a ruling.  Since Perry had tossed in a chip to signify a call, and since his cards were clearly retrievable, he was bound to the all in bet, and the players showed their cards.

Rosenthal: [7s][7h]
Perry: [Qs][5s]

The flop of [As][6c][2s] gave Perry a flush draw, and drew ooh's and aah's from the table. The turn [4c] brought no help, but the [4s] on the river changed everything, giving Perry a winning flush, and an unlikely knockout.

Kishor Deai Eliminated in 10th Place ($5,340)

Ahmad Hooshmand started the action by moving all in from under the gun for about four million. Everyone folded around to the big blind, Kishor Desai, who called all in for less.

Hooshmand: [Qs][Qd] 
Desai: [Ah][Kc] 

The board ran down [4h][3c][4d][Js][5c], and Hooshmand scored the knockout to up his stack to over seven million. 

Unofficial Final Table Photos and Chip Counts

Mats Gavatin looked to be in great shape to score a much needed double up when he got it in preflop holding pocket kings to the [Kc][Jc] of Tri Nguyen. However, the flop brought two clubs, and despite his great lead at the start, Gavatin was drawing dead when the flush came in on the turn.

This leaves us with our final ten players, and you can view those players, with their updated chip counts, below. Stay tuned to find out who takes home the title!

Seat 1: Victor Kruglov - 13,500,000

Seat 2: Sean O'Neill - 19,200,000

Seat 8: Arash Sarrah - 3,900,000

Seat 9: Tri Nguyen - 13,500,000

Seat 10: Jonathan Rosenthal - 2,100,000

O'Neill Leads as the Final Table Looms

We have now lost Mark Kawanaga in 14th place, Erdal Artek in 13th place, and new chip leader Sean O'Neill has just dispatched Ron Haeri in 12th place. O'Neill has been on a tear since we got down to the final two tables, as he now leads with a stack of over 18 million, Victor Krugolov is in second with 11.5 million, and Tri Nguyen is in third with just over 11 million himself.

When we lose one more player, we will combine to the final 10 players at one table. We will post photos and updated counts for all the players remaining then.

Fresh Counts From the Final 14

We lost Mark Jeans in 18th place, Ron Haeri in 17th, and Peter Cross in 16th place just now. They all took home $4,010. As we were getting counts for the final 15, Estrella Lim also busted, meaning we have just 14 left. Below you will see the counts for the final 14, listed by their current seat.

Final Break of the Night

Originally the plan was to play 14 levels tonight, but given the later start today, and the 1 PM comeback time tomorrow, the floor staff has decided we will only be playing 10 levels tonight.

That means that the 108 players who are now in the money will be coming back to play two more levels before play ends for the night around 1:20 AM local time.

No Hand for Hand Needed, We are in the Money!

The floor staff was getting to run hand for hand on the money bubble, but after counting the field and confirming again, they determined we were already down to 108 players, meaning we are now in the money!

Players are about to go on a break. When they return, we will grab updated counts for many of the notables still in the tournament.

The Money Bubble is Near

The clock says 118 players remaining, meaning we are exactly 10 eliminations away from the money now. Once we get down to the final 108 players, they will all have $450 locked up.

Once the bubble has burst, we will grab another round of notable chip counts for you guys.
