Level 5: 150-300, 50 ante

There are a few thousand chips in the pot and the board reads KdiamondJdiamondJheart and Champions Club member Jordan Cristos bets 1,300. His opponent, who is in the cutoff, calls.

The turn brings the 6spade and Cristos bets 3,200. Again, his opponent calls.

The river is the 8heart. Cristos silently bets 10,700. His opponent thinks for a minute, then calls.

Cristos tables Jclub9heart for trip nines, his opponent mucks, and Cristos takes the pot.

Shannon Shorr vs. Andy Philachack

Level 5: 150-300, 50 ante

The player in the hijack limps in and Shannon Shorr raises to 1,200 out of the small blind. Andy Philachack calls from the big blind, the player in the hijack limp-raises all in for 5,575 and both Shorr and Philachack call.

The flop falls KspadeJspade3spade and Shorr bets 4,100. Philachack calls to see the 8club turn where Shorr shoves for about 17,500. Philachack tanks for a bit before he folds.

Shorr shows AspadeQclub, drawing against the hijack's AclubKclub. The 3heart river is no help to Shorr, securing the triple up for his opponent.

Andy Frankenberger Eliminated

Level 4: 100-200, 25 ante

After a flop of 8diamond6diamond2heart, there is some betting among three players to put about 7,000 into the pot before WPT Champions Club member Andy Frankenberger moves all in from the small blind for an additional 11,750.

The player in the hijack asks for a count and thinks for a bit before he moves all in over the top for 32,125.

The player on the button asks for a count of the hijack's stack, and thinks for a bit before he folds.

Frankenberger shows 7heart5heart for an open-ended straight draw, and the hijack turns over Kdiamond7diamond for a king-high flush draw.

The turn is the Jspade, the river is the 3heart, and neither player improves. The hijack wins the pot with king high to eliminate Frankenberger.

Matt Glantz Eliminated By Blake Purvis

Level 4: 100-200, 25 ante

A short-stacked Matt Glantz raised all in for 1,250 from under the gun and three players called.

The flop fell 8heart7diamond2diamond and Blake Purvis isolated the action and tabled JclubJdiamond. Glantz shows just the 2spade for bottom pair and improves to trips following the 2heart turn. However, the Jspade river gave Purvis jacks full of deuces, besting Glantz's Aspade2spade to score the elimination.

Blake Purvis - 62,000 (310 bb)
