Clash of the Titans

$200 + $30 Deep Stack Turbo No Limit Hold'em

Playing 50k/100k with 10k antes.

With two players all-in, Jeff Lee (Fort Lee, NJ) made the call holding A3. The board came 3 3 x A x and Jeff busted both of them. With that pot he chipped up to about 2 million.

Jeff then opened for 200k and seat 5 moved all-in for just over twice that. Jeff called, tabling A3 off (again). His opponent held AQ and the lead. This time Jeff got no miracle and his opponent doubled up. Jeff was left with about 1.6 million.

Giuseppe Pantaleo has about 2.2 million and Chris Bonita has about 1.75 million.

Soheil Shamseddin (cutoff) moved all-in and got called by Jerry Callahan in the big blind. Soheil's pocket Tens were a big dog to Jerry's pocket Aces. The board ran out J 5 5 3 A and Jerry took the pot. Soheil took 15th place. Jerry chipped up to ~2.1 million.

Tam Nguyen (Harrisburg, PA) got all-in holding pocket Tens against a player holding A3. The board came K 7 4 3 A and Tam reported to the rail in 14th place.

Playing 60k/120k with 20k antes:

On the river with a board of T T 4 3 A, Giuseppe Pantaleo moved all-in and got the insta-call from Jerry Callahan. Giuseppe held T8 for trip Tens, but Jerry tabled QT for the same hand with better kicker. Jerry doubled up to ~4.5 million to take a monster chip lead. Giuseppe was left with ~700k.

Ten players remain. They're coloring up some of the gray chips and moving to a single table, then taking a one-hour dinner break. Play will resume at about 8:30pm.

TJ has made the final table and wants to say "Hello" to his sons, Justin & Jonathan. Consider it done, TJ.
