Final Results

After returning from the break the players began to discuss how they would like to proceed. Since three of the five players were going to play in the $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. event tomorrow, and it was already past 3 a.m., the final five players came to gentleman's agreement to determine the final standings. Here are the final results:

1: Frank Kassela
2: Raphael Zimmerman
3: Mickey Mills
4: Randy Ohel
5: Andreas Krause

Check back in tomorrow for live coverage of the $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. event begining at 3 p.m.

Frank Kassela Doubles Up and Then Some

Frank KasselaFrank Kassela has now found himself on the winning end of the two most lucractive pots in the tournament. He was all in against Raphael Zimmerman, who had both Kassela and Erick Lindgren covered all in on a board of J10288. Their cards:

Kassela: AQ93
Lindgren: A5A9
Zimmerman: J1097

Kassela doubled up on the hand with his straight and eliminated Erick Lindgren in eighth place.



Erick Lindgren Doubles Up

Erick LindgrenRaphael Zimmerman raised 6,000 from the button on a flop of K84 and Erick Lindgren raised to 17,500 from the hi-jack. Matt Glantz mucked and Zimmerman raised enough to put Lindgren all in, who made the call. Their cards:

Lindgren: 8876
Zimmerman: KQ104

Turn and River: 97

Lindgren won the hand to double up and survive.



Money Bubble Sets In

The slow play of the money bubble has finally taken hold of this field. Eight players remain and only the top five are going to walk away with prize money. After sticking with it for this long these players are very unlikely to go down without a fight. This could take a while.
