Hands #10-12: Final Nine Players

Aug 28, 2014

Hand #10  –  Owen Crowe raises under the gun to 65,000, Massoud Eskandari calls UTG+1, and Richard Munro calls from the small blind. The flop comes [10d8c2h], Munro checks, and Crowe bets 70,000. Eskandari folds, and Munro calls. The turn card pairs the board with the [10s], and both players check.

The river card double-pairs the board with the [2c], Munro bets 125,000, and Crowe calls. Munro shows [AcKs] for the two pair on the board with an ace kicker, but Crowe turns over [7d7s] to win the pot with a higher two pair, tens and sevens.

Owen Crowe  –  2,300,000  (76 bb)
Richard Munro  –  730,000  (24 bb)

Hand #11  –  Keven Stammen raises UTG+1 to 70,000, Tyler Cornell reraises from middle position to 180,000, and Stammen calls. The flop comes [Qs5c3h], Stammen checks, Cornell bets 175,000, and Stammen calls. The turn card pairs the board with the [Qc], and both players check.

The river card is the [Ad], and both players check. Cornell shows [AsKs] to win the pot with two pair, aces and queens, and Stammen mucks.

Tyler Cornell  –  4,670,000  (155 bb)
Keven Stammen  –  910,000  (30 bb)

Hand #12  –  Harut Arutyunyan raises from middle position to 70,000, Taylor McFarland calls from middle position, and Massoud Eskandari calls from the big blind. All three players check to the turn on a board of [10h7s6cQd], Eskandari checks, and Arutyunyan bets 105,000. McFarland calls, and Eskandari folds.

The river card is the [7c], Arutyunyan bets 115,000, McFarland raises to 285,000, and Arutyunyan calls. McFarland shows [AdQh] for two pair, queens and sevens, and Arutyunyan flashes one card — the [Qc] — before tossing his cards in the muck (presumably with a lower kicker).

Taylor McFarland  –  1,990,000  (66 bb)
Harut Arutyunyan  –  1,530,000  (51 bb)
