Lamothe Lost; Pantaleo Put Out; Badecker Bounced

WPT BORGATA POKER OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP

Francis Lamothe

Francis Lamothe made his move with K9 suited and got looked up by Olivier Busquet, who held pocket 7s. The board came Q 6 3 4 T and Francis reported to the rail (32nd place, $13,008). Olivier has about 1.8 million.

Giuseppe Pantaleo, who has been on a downhill slide, got his last ~400k in and got called by John D'Agostino. Giuseppe's T8 suited was in bad shape against John's pocket Tens. The board came A J 5 6 9 and Giuseppe was busted. He earned 31st place and $13,008. John chipped up to ~1.91 million.

Brandon Novena opened for 55k from the cutoff, then Andrew Badecker moved all-in from the button for ~313k. After a bit of think-time, Brandon made the call. Andrew was ahead with AJ against Brandon's A9 suited. Of course we know the flop frequently changes everything. The board came 9 7 6 8 2 and Brandon took the pot with a pair of 9s.

Andrew Badecker, who won event 6, $250 No Limit Hold'em, ($28,067) was busted in 30th place, earning $13,008. Brandon chipped up to 2.9 million, good for the chip lead.
