Leo Fernandez Takes Really Gross Beat
Team PokerStars pro Leo Fernandez was down to his last 8,000 in chips when he got it in with AK. His opponent revealed AK and Fernandez looked like he was heading for a chop.
Instead, the board ran out Q10593, giving his opponent a spade flush and ending his tournament in the process.
Will Failla Runs Into a Bigger Draw
Will Failla was down to about 11,000 or so when his final hand came down. He, Rene Angelil and another unknown opponent saw a flop of 765 when we caught up to the action.
The unknown bet 1,000, Angelil called and Failla raised to 4,000. The unknown moved all in and Angelil folded. Failla called, stating that he wanted to gamble, with 108 for an open-ended straight draw and the ladder to a ten-high straight. His opponent showed A8, however, killing many of his outs.
The turn and river fell JQ and Failla was eliminated.
Luca Pagano Hunting For Another Final Table
One of the most successful players in EPT history is up to a healthy 45,000 after doubling up with pocket kings.
Luca Pagano bet the whole way on a board reading K7594 and called all in when his opponent raised on the river. Pagano didn’t see a flush in his opponent’s hand and was relieved to see his top set was good.
Pagano currently has the most cashes and final table appearances in EPT history, but is looking for his first victory here in this tournament.
Mike Matusow Sent To The Rail
Mike Matusow was short stacked when he made his final move with A-Q and was relieved to see that he was at least racing against an unknown’s pocket jacks. The board offered no help for “the mouth” and he was eliminated from the tournament.

The J 9 7 come out on the flop fiving Fernandez an open ended straight and Katchalov an inside straight. The turn is the 10 fulfilling Katchalov’s wishes, and giving him a straight to the king. The river is the 9 and Fernandez goes out in fifth place for $166,309.

Level 13 Recap
Jul 02, '07There were 40 players at the beginning of level 13 and now that number has decreased to just 33. Tournament offcials announced that hand for hand play would begin at 37 players, with the money starting at 36. Hand for hand play last around a half an hour until Mickey Appleman and Marco Traniello got tangled up in a hand. With the board showing A J 9 the two players got all their money in the middle and Traniello had Appleman well covered. Traniello showed A J 10 3 and Appleman turned over A 9 2 2. Appleman needed a nine or a two on the turn or river to stay alive. The turn brought the K and the river was the 4. Appleman was eliminated in 37th place, on the bubble.
Shortly before hand for hand play began, Dave Colclough and Ken Strandi were eliminated. Colclough got it all in preflop against Leo Fernandez. Colclough had A J 9 5 and Fernandez showed A K K Q and was in the lead with his kings. The board came 4 4 2 6 A and Colclough was sent to the rail out of the money. Strandi was all in preflop up against David Chiu. Chiu had K K 7 6 and was ahead of Strandi's A 9 9 4. The dealer put out K Q 9 Q Q and Chiu had the bigger full house.
After the bubble burst, Steve Sung took a big chunk out of Tim Phan's stack. A preflop betting war had Sung all in preflop for $230,000 against Phan who had him covered. Sung turned up A A 10 8 and Phan called with K K Q 4. The board bricked out for Phan when it came J 9 4 5 7 and Sung's aces held up. Sung doubled up to $460,000 and Phan was left with a huge dent in his stack.
The players seemed to relax a little after the bubble burst with Joe Beevers, Donnacha O'Dea and Doyle Brunson sharing jokes as the table passed around the payout structure.
Patrik Antonius is looking frustrated. He has been asked by the floor supervisor several times to remove his head phones. He was insistent that he wasn’t listening to music but has been asked to remove them all the same.
Roy Brindley, who is seated to Antonius’ right, told CardPlayer.com at break, ‘He's put on a great display on how to blow 250,000 chips! I don't know why he doesn't just throw his chips in the air and give some to everybody. It's been embarrassing. In the first 45 minutes he must have been in 15 pots and he's lost 14 of them and he's played 13 of them desperately badly and he's about to explode.’ Read Roy’s Pro Blog at CardPlayer.com.
Brindley lost a chunk of change at the beginning of level 14 when his A-A-Q-Q ran into Q-Q-10-J on a board of 2-10-10-J-8 and he looked exasperated, forming a gun with his fingers and putting it to his head.This tournament marks the seventh cash in the 2007 World Series of Poker for Michael Binger. The record number of cashes in any World Series is eight and it remains to be seen if Binger can tie or pass that record with only three events remaining.
