Lavoie Eliminated on the Money Bubble by Kohlberg

Level 18: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Michael Lavoie raises under the gun to 30,000, Curt Kohlberg reraises UTG+1 to 65,000, and Lavoie moves all in for 165,000.

Kohlberg calls with KheartKspade, and Lavoie turns over AdiamondQdiamond. Lavoie needs to improve to stay alive.

The board comes Jclub8diamond8spade6club7club, and Kohlberg wins the pot with his pocket kings to eliminate Lavoie on the Money Bubble.

Curt Kohlberg  -  788,000  (78 bb)
Michael Lavoie  -  Eliminated

Both Michael Lavoie and Nick Schulman (who was at a different table) were eliminated on the final hands of the level that extended into the dinner break.

In fact, a lot of the remaining players left for dinner when there were still 38 players remaining, two spots away from the money. When they return, they'll learn that the Money Bubble burst before hand-for-hand play could even begin.

The remaining 36 players are all guaranteed at least $30,085 each.

Schulman Eliminated on Money Bubble by Hawkins

Level 18: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Yuval Harosh min-raises under the gun to 20,000, Maurice Hawkins calls from the button, and WPT Champions Club member Nick Schulman calls from the big blind.

The flop comes Jdiamond10diamond3x, and it checks to Hawkins, who bets 35,000. Harosh accidentally folds out of turn, and then action is on Schulman, who check-raises all in for about 150,000.

Hawkins calls with AdiamondKdiamond for a gutshot Royal Flush draw, and Schulman turns over Q-9 for an open-ended straight draw. Schulman needs to improve to stay alive.

The turn is a 2, the river is the Aspade, and Hawkins wins the pot with a pair of aces to eliminate Schulman from the tournament.

Maurice Hawkins  -  830,000  (83 bb)
Nick Schulman  -  Eliminated

Anthony Gregg Doubles Thru Nick Schulman

Level 18: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Maurice Hawkins min-raises under the gun to 20,000, Anthony Gregg calls UTG+1, Nick Schulman calls from the hijack, and Abe Korotki calls from the big blind.

The flop comes Qspade5diamond3heart, and it checks to Gregg, who bets 47,000. Schulman raises to 104,000, and Korotki and Hawkins both fold. Gregg calls.

The turn card pairs the board with the 5heart, Gregg checks, Schulman bets 116,000, and Gregg tanks for more than five minutes before he moves all in for 294,000.

Schulman calls with AspadeQclub for two pair, queens and fives, but Gregg turns over KheartKspade for a higher two pair, kings and fives. Gregg needs his hand to hold to stay alive.

The river card is the Kclub, and Gregg wins the pot with a full house, kings full of fives, to double up in chips.

Anthony Gregg  -  898,000  (89 bb)
Nick Schulman  -  200,000  (20 bb)

Palermo Flushes Thru Stammen With A-K vs. A-K

Level 18: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Leonardo Palermo moves all in from the hijack for 180,000, and Keven Stammen moves all in over the top from the button. Everyone else folds.

Palermo shows AspadeKheart, and Stammen turns over AheartKdiamond -- it'll be a chopped pot unless somebody makes a flush.

The board comes 9spade6diamond5spade10spade6spade, and Palermo defies the odds by making an ace-high flush on the river to win the pot and double up in chips.

Leonardo Palermo  -  383,000  (38 bb)
Keven Stammen  -  265,000  (26 bb)

Near the Money Bubble

Level 18: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

With 38 players remaining in the tournament, action is much slower than it was earlier today, as the field is knocking on the door of the Money Bubble.

As soon as one more player is eliminated, the field will begin hand-for-hand play until the Money Bubble has burst.

The final 36 players will finish in the money, guaranteed at least $30,085.

Keven Stammen raises to 20,000 under the gun, and Loni Harwood three-bets to 48,000 in the cutoff. When it comes back around to Stammen, he moves all in for 235,000 total, and Harwood calls with the covering stack.

Stammen shows AdiamondKheart, flipping for his tournament life against Harwood's JspadeJclub.

The board runs out 9diamond4club2diamond3heartAspade, and the ace on the river saves Stammen's day. He doubles up with a pair of aces.
