Andy Hwang vs. Michael Aron

Level 9: 400-800, 100 ante

Michael Aron raises to 1,800 from early position, Champions Club member Andy Hwang calls from the small blind, and the player in the big blind calls.

They check to the turn of a Kspade9spade6heart4diamond board where Hwang bets 3,500. Only Aron calls to see the 9club river where Hwang bets 8,000. Aron tanks for a bit before he calls, but mucks when Hwang tables JheartJclub.

Zo Karim Eliminated

Level 9: 400-800, 100 ante

After a flop of Kheart9club3spade, the big blind bets 3,900, and Zo Karim thought for a bit before moving all in from the cutoff for 20,200.

The big blind quickly calls with Kdiamond9diamond (two pair, kings and nines), and Karim turns over Jclub10spade (gutshot straight draw). Karim needs to improve to stay alive.

The turn is the 5diamond, the river is the 7spade, and the big blind wins the pot with two pair to eliminate Karim from Day 1B.

Jake Bazeley Doubles Through Vanessa Selbst

Level 9: 400-800, 100 ante

After a few raises preflop, Jake Bazeley and Vanessa Selbst are heads-up to a flop of QdiamondJdiamond6diamond. Selbst bets 5,300 and Bazeley calls. The turn is the Aheart and Selbst takes a few moments before announcing she is all in. 

Bazeley snap-calls off his 26,600 chips and tables AdiamondQdiamond. Selbst takes a few moments before eventually tabling AspadeKspade and is drawing dead. 

The river is the inconsequential 2heart and Bazeley doubles up. 

Jake Bazeley - 76,000
Vanessa Selbst - 18,200

Aaron Massey Has Played One Hand Since Dinner

Level 8: 300-600, 75 ante

Aaron Massey bought in for his fourth bullet late in Level 4, before the second break of the day. He played his first hand and doubled up to about 60,000, which you can read about here.

Then the field took a 15-minute break, and when they returned, Massey didn't win a single hand for the next two hours.

Then the field took their 90-minute dinner break, and Massey didn't play a single hand for all of Level 7 and the first 45 minutes of Level 8.

That's when he finally played another hand ...

After a flop of 9heart4heart3diamond, Massey got it all in from middle position for 37,675 with 10spade10diamond for an overpair. George Dolofan (UTG+1) has his stack covered, but has a lower pair -- 6diamond6club.

The turn is the 10heart, the river is the 2diamond, and Massey wins the pot with a set of tens to double his chip stack to about 91,000.

Immediately after the hand, Massey calls out to Zo Karim, seated at the next table, and he says, "Zo, I just played my first hand!"

Aaron Massey  -  91,000  (151 bb)
George Dolofan  -  67,000  (111 bb)

Both players check and Cardin shows Aclub3club. Her two pair gets counterfeited and Purvis tables Adiamond7club. His seven kicker plays to give him the pot.

The flop falls Qheart5club2club, Moorman continues for 4,400, and Clinkscales calls to see the 4spade turn. Moorman bets 11,000, Clinkscales calls, and the 5diamond river completes the board.

Both players check and Moorman shows KclubJclub for a missed flush draw. Clinkscales tables KspadeQspade for a pair of queens to win the pot.

Rex Clinkscales - 103,000

Jared Jaffee Returns to the Tournament

Level 8: 300-600, 75 ante

Earlier, we posted a tweet that WPT Champions Club member Jared Jaffee was taken to an urgent-care facility by David Tuthill during the dinner break. We're happy to report that Jaffee has returned to the tournament.

Jaffee tells us that he's feeling fine, and he's rebuilding his energy with a sandwich that resident food connoisseur Zo Karim had waiting for his return.

Dimmig Finds an Ace to Double

Level 8: 300-600, 75 ante

Jonathan Dimmig gets his last 22,000 into the middle on a flop of 8club3spade3diamond from late position and gets action from the big blind. 

The big blind is in the lead with his QclubQspade against Dimmig's AheartKheart. The turn is the 9club and Dimmig begins to get out of his seat and collect his belongings, but the Aclub falls on the river to give him the pot. The big blind lets out a loud groan and gets out of his seat and walks away from the table in disgust as the pot is pushed to Dimmig. 

Jonathan Dimmig - 56,200
