Final Four

Only four players remained at this point and Thang Luu was the chip leader with over $700,000.

Luske Hands Tough

Marcel Luske was now the short stack at the table, but he was not about to go lightly to the rail. He moved all in on every other hand during one stretch. One time he took only a quarter of the pot, but he made up for that by taking three quarters of the pot the next time he pushed all in. He even scooped a pot with A K K 3 on a board of Q 10 9 4 J. If someone wanted to eliminated the Duthcman from the tournament, they were going to have to accomplish the task by force.

Marvin Ryan Doubled Up

On a board of Q 10 9 8 6 Marvin Ryan moved all for his tournament life. He turned up A J J 10, which was good enough to survive. He then went to celebrate his victory with his supporters on the rail of the ‘No Limit Lounge’.

The Hive

The final table of this event is tucked away in a corner behind the ‘No Limit Lounge’. The wall of the sequestered web cast table is on one side, and a thick wall of railbirds is on the other. This has given the final table a feeling of seclusion all its own, which makes for an interesting atmosphere.
