Ryan Eriquezzo Busts Lauren Kling & Matt Szymaszek to Take the Lead

Level 14: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

2117 Ryan Eriquezzo Eliminates Lauren Kling and Matt Szymaszek
Matt Szymaszek (far left) moves all in from the hijack for 42,100, Lauren Kling (center left) calls from the cutoff, and Ryan Eriquezzo (far right) moves all in over the top from the small blind for more than 200,000. Kling has about 100,000 left behind, and she tanks for a while before she calls.

Here are their cards in descending order of chip counts:

Ryan Eriquezzo:  AheartKspade
Lauren Kling:  JdiamondJspade
Matt Szymaszek:  AspadeJclub

The board comes Kheart5heart4club9spade6club, and Eriquezzo pairs his king on the flop to win the entire pot and eliminate both Kling and Szymaszek from the tournament.

Ryan Eriquezzo  -  400,000  (166 bb)

After a flop of 8club8diamond5heart, Ryan Eriquezzo (right) checks the big blind, Lauren Kling (left) bets 7,200 from the button, and Eriquezzo check-raises to 18,500. Kling thinks for a bit before she calls.

Eriquezzo Checks and Calls

Level 11: 600-1,200, 200 ante

On a 5spade3heart2heart flop, Ryan Eriquezzo check-calls a bet of 7,000 in a heads-up pot. The turn brings the Qspade and another check from Eriquezzo, and his opponent bets another 16,000. Eriquezzo pays off the bet, then another bet on the river.

At showdown, Eriquezzo's 9diamond9heart is the best hand, and that pot pushes him up into contention for the overnight chip lead.

Naoya Kihara vs. Ryan Eriquezzo

Level 11: 600-1,200, 200 ante

Naoya Kihara raises to 2,600 under the gun and Ryan Eriquezzo defends his big blind.

The flop falls QclubJclub8spade and Eriquezzo check-calls 2,600 from Kihara to see the Kheart turn. Both checked through to the Jheart river where Eriquezzo bets 12,200. Kihara mulls it over for about 30 seconds before he calls.
