Geyer Gone

Adam Geyer - Eliminated.
Adam Geyer - Eliminated.

Adam Geyer, who finished 45th in this event last year, was all in and at risk against Anthony Gregg moments ago. Geyer ({10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}) and Gregg ({a-Clubs}{k-Spades}) were racing, but the {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} flop gave Gregg a commanding lead. Neither the turn ({8-Clubs}), nor the river ({4-Diamonds}) helped Geyer, and he was eliminated from the tournament.

Greenstein Goes For Broke

Faraz Jaka came into the pot with a raise to 20,000 from the hijack, and Barry Greenstein three-bet to 60,000 in the small blind. Jaka gave it a good stew, and he eventually announced an all-in four-bet. Greenstein quickly shifted the rest of his 267,000 chips into the middle, and Jaka knew that was bad news for his hand.

Jaka: {A-Diamonds} {10-Diamonds}
Greenstein: {A-Clubs} {A-Spades}

The board ran out {4-Clubs} {9-Hearts} {7-Spades} {Q-Spades} {10-Spades}, and Greenstein smashes the double to move over the half-million-chip mark for the first time in 2012.

Mikhail Shikhworich opened from under the gun to 16,000 before play moved to Carlos Mortensen in middle position. Mortensen reraised all in for 145,000. In the cutoff seat, Charles Furey reraised all in himself and Shikhworich folded.

When the hands were opened, Mortensen revealed the {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs} and Furey the {Q-Spades}{Q-Hearts}.

The {A-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{3-Spades} board didn't give Mortensen any help and he was eliminated from the tournament.

Peters Binks a Double

There was about 60,000 in the pot when we walked up to the turn of a {4-Spades} {J-Hearts} {6-Clubs} {5-Hearts} board. It was heads-up, and David Peters was leading the betting with 32,000 chips. Sergio Garcia raised all in behind him, and Peters called off his last 108,000 chips to put himself at risk.

Peters: {A-Clubs} {A-Spades}
Garcia: {K-Diamonds} {J-Diamonds}

The river was the blank {4-Diamonds}, and Peters has doubled his way back up to about 285,000, essentially trading places with Garcia.
