Torelli asked for a count before eventually folding.
Daniel Negreanu is Eliminated
The short stacked Negreanu raised pre-flop with ace queen and was set all in by Doug Lee for 35,000, who was holding pocket threes. The flop brought a queen and everything looked good for a double up, however a 3 on the turn gave Lee a set and had Negreanu drawing dead.

Still Too Chicken
Feb 19, '09
With a pot worth 27,000 in the middle of the table and a board of Q4310, Andreas Hoivold bets 14,300 and Markus Lehmann goes into the tank. It seems to be all he has been doing lately.
He takes so long that players have time to leave the table, talk to friends, stretch their legs, and go to the toilet. He then folds.
"Show it!" he demands Hoivold, and then eventually talks him into it. Hoivold shows A9 for a simple ace-high.
Lehmann is seething.

Showdown At Table 9
A battle of huge chipstacks became a threesome in the final minute of Level 9, when veteran Eli Elezra was moved when Table 13 was killed. Elezra joined big stacks Mike Sowers and Raphael Zimmerman just as the blinds increased to 1000-2000.
Elezra brought with him 150,000 in chips, and in a matter of minutes had eliminated Ray Coburn. After an initial Elezra raise, Coburn came over the top to 12,500, only to have Elezra make it 40,000 to play. Coburn eventually committed all of his 57,000 into the pot and flipped over pocket queens, while Elezra showed kings. The flop of 10AK gave Elezra a set and left Coburn drawing to a gut-shot straight, but he failed to hit when the 6 and 2 rounded out play.
Sowers and Zimmerman had been butting heads earlier. On play had Sowers raise pre-flop, into a second raise of Zimmerman to 45,000. Sowers made it 89,600 and Zimmerman sent up the white flag. Sowers stands at 230,000 in chips, while Zimmerman would recover to amass 185,000.
Juanda's Time Runs Out
John Juanda elected to make a stand with his shortstack and moved all-in with 48,000 chips. David "Raptor" Benefield made the call with A-K, and a bullet on the flop sent Juanda packing just as Level 9 expired.
Tuan Le Wins Massive Pot
Tuan Le became one of the tournament chip leaders thanks to a well-timed value bet. After being checked to on the river, Le bet approximately 70% of his remaining stack. His opponent deliberated for several minutes before announcing a call. Tuan Le's set of sevens was good, increasing his stack to over 200,000.
Eric Seidel Eliminated
After battling a short stack for the last round, Erik Seidel called a 5,500 raise from the player on the button. Almost as soon as the A54 flop fell, Seidel bet his remaining 6,400 and was called by his opponent. Seidel turned over 43 while his opponent showed 97. The 9 on the turn took the lead away from Seidel, and the 5 on the river meant that Erik Seidel's run had ended.
David Bach Still Slingin'
David Bach won a massive pot when his pocket queens eliminated his opponent's pocket 8s. He now has over 190,000 and is among the tournament chip leaders.
Eugene Katchalov Eliminated by Eli Elezra
Eugene got it in with the nut flush draw against Elezra's trip deuces. Eugene hit his flush on the river, but it was too late as Elezra hit quad deuces on the turn.
Laak and Keller Go At It
On a board of JT732, Phil Laak made a bet of 23,300 into his opponent, Thomas Keller. Keller pondered for several minutes before calling. Laak turned over J7 and Keller mucked. Laak now has over 175,000, but Keller is still over 100,000.
Curtains for Kravchenko
Alex Kravchenko's A-T could not improve against his opponent's J-J and his night ended prematurely.
Phil Laak made it 4,500 from late position but was met with a re-raise by Jen Harman in the small blind. In typical "Unabomber" fashion, Laak laughed maniacally before folding his cards.
Phil Laak limped two off the button, eliciting a shout of, "Is that even allowed?" from his tablemate Shawn Keller. Harman completed from the small blind and Joe Patrick checked his option. The flop of 844 checked around, leading to the 5 turn. Harman led out for 4,000, Patrick quickly raised to 13,500, leaving himself only 12,000 behind. Harman thought for two minutes before sticking in a final raise. Patrick snap called. Harman's 74 was in front of Patrick's monster draw of 63. The river brought the 2, shipping the pot to Patrick and leaving Harman with only 23,000 near the end of the day.

Karam vs. Lehmann
Apr 13, '08
Marc Karam opens the pot with a standard raise and Markus Lehmann reraises to 1,675. "How much do you have," says Karam. Lehmann moves his arms away to reveal the rest of his stack and Karam makes the call. The flop rolls out 542 and Lehmann bets 2,500. Karam goes into the tank for a few minutes and then asks for a count. Lehmann has 5,150 left and Karam raises to exactly that amount to put Lehmann all in. Lehmann calls all in and flips up two kings. Karam shakes his head and says "I thought you had ace-king." He turns up two eights and the turn and river bring AJ. Lehmann takes dwon the pot and survives. "Nice hand," says Karam after the hand.
