Jesse Sylvia Doubles Thru Galen Hall

Level 19: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Galen Hall raises under the gun, and Jesse Sylvia moves all in from the hijack for 92,000 more. Hall stands up to get a good look at the other tables while he thinks, almost as if he's checking out the other short stacks, but he isn't at risk and they are still a few spots away from an increase in the payouts.

Hall eventually calls with KdiamondJclub, and Sylvia turns over 9club9spade. Sylvia will need his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board comes Qheart8heart6diamond6spade2club, and the pocket nines hold up for Sylvia to win the pot and double up in chips.

Jesse Sylvia  -  250,000  (31 bb)
Galen Hall  -  363,000  (45 bb)

After the hand, Sylvia assumes that Hall was doing some complicated ICM calculation when he was looking around the room, but Hall says no. Hall says he was simply trying to figure out which player would most likely be moved to their table to replace Sylvia if he had busted.

Dethroned Chipleader Galen Hall

Level 13: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante

2034 Chipleader Galen Hall
Galen Hall had the chip lead at the last break, and gave his thoughts to the WPT tournament from the table.

Hall has since slipped a bit (he's currently sixth in chips with about 270,000), and last night's chipleader Peter Neff has regained the top spot with about 375,000.
