Live Tournament Updates

Shooting Star: David Williams

Level 11: 600-1,200, 200 ante

2565 David Williams

Prior to 2010, David Williams standout accomplishments were a series of second place finishes. He was runner-up to Greg Raymer at the 2004 WSOP Main Event. He finished second to Daniel Negreanu at the WPT’s Borgata Poker Open back in Season II. Last May, he changed all that with a career-defining win at the WPT Championship event, where he defeated Eric Baldwin heads-up to claim his first WPT title as well as $1,530,537.

That victory bumped up Williams’ lifetime earnings to more than $8.2 million and marked his 10th career WPT cash and fourth career WPT final table. In addition to the Borgata Poker Open and the WPT Championship, Williams also final tabled the Mirage Poker Showdown in Season V and here at the Bay 101 in Season IV. Williams also has a WSOP bracelet and a reputation as a renowned Magic the Gathering player.

Shooting Star David Williams Eliminated

Level 11: 600-1,200, 200 ante

4896 David Williams Eliminated
Photo: See that empty seat behind the chips? That seat belongs to David Williams. But as soon as he saw the flop, he left the table, and by the time the river card arrived he was completely out of sight. Shannon Shorr (top right) takes it all in stride.

Shooting Star David Williams gets it all-in preflop for his last 25,000 or so holding 8diamond8heart to Kevin McGowan's Aclub10club.

The KclubJclub10heart doesn't leave Williams much hope, as it gives McGowan a pair of tens, the nut flush draw, and a gutshot royal flush draw. Williams grabs his bag, gets out of his seat, and heads fr the door, only turning back long enough to see the 9club come on the turn, leaving him drawing dead.

Williams is long gone by the time the 4club comes on the river, which leaves McGowan wondering if the Shooting Star is going to pose for a picture and sign his bounty t-shirt.  Williams does return a couple of minutes later to bid McGowan and the table farewell.

Kevin McGowan  -  60,000
David Williams  -  Eliminated

Setback for David Sands

Level 11: 600-1,200, 200 ante

David Sands raises to 2,700 from under the gun, Marco Johnson calls from middle position, Jeff Sluzinski calls from the cutoff, and the player on the button moves all-in for 17,600.  Sands thinks about it a while before calling.  Johnson quickly folds.

The all-in player gets out of his seat and starts to stretch while he waits for Sluzinski to make a decision.  Sluzinski gives the player a quizzical look and studies him a minute before folding.

Sands shows KclubQdiamond and the all-in player is in great shape with AclubKdiamond. Sands fails to improve on the 10spade6diamond5diamond4heart5club board and the other player doubles up.

David Sands - 70,000

Nick Grippo Eliminated by Shooting Star Jonathan Duhamel

Level 11: 600-1,200, 200 ante

With the board showing Kheart8club5diamondQdiamond on the turn and about 35,000 already in the pot, Nick Grippo bets 12,000 from the big blind, and Shooting Star Jonathan Duhamel calls from the cutoff.

The river card pairs the board with the 5spade, Grippo bets 25,000, and Duhamel thinks for a bit before moving all in for about 76,000. Grippo asks for an exact count before he calls with a similar stack.

Duhamel turns over 8heart8spade for a full house, eights full of fives, and Grippo mucks. The chip stacks are counted down, and Duhamel has him covered, so Nick Grippo is eliminated from the tournament.

Shooting Star Chau Giang Doubles Up

Level 11: 600-1,200, 200 ante

Shooting Star Chau Giang open shoves all-in for his last 26,800 from early position and the player in the cutoff moves all-in behind him for slightly less.  Amir Lehavot is in the small blind and gives it some thought before folding.  The player in the big bind folds as well.

Gian turns over 10spade10diamond and he is up against Aclub7club.  The board runs out 9spade6diamond4diamond43clubKspade and Giang takes the pot to double up.
