Michael Palo raised to 20,000 in middle position, Hans Winzeler three-bet to 45,000 in the cutoff, and Jason Johnson cold four-bet to 95,000 on the button. Palo folded, Winzeler made a quick call, and the two checked on a flop of {3-Hearts}{j-Spades}{7-Spades}.

The turn was the {a-Diamonds}, both players checked again, and the river was the suicide king ({k-Hearts}). Check-check.

Nardello Over Siffledeen

• Level 19: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

We arrived to find about 160,000 already in the middle on a board of {3-Spades}{4-Clubs}{A-Hearts}{5-Hearts}. Quentin Siffledeen was heads up with Nicholas Nardello in the hand. The former came out with a bet of 100,000 straight and Nardello pushed forward calling chips.

The board completed with the {4-Diamonds} and Siffledeen went into the tank. About 90 seconds passed before he tapped the table. Nardello quickly checked it back and the hands were exposed. Siffledeen shrugged and rolled over {j-Hearts}{6-Spades}, prompting Nardello to show {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} for the win. Nardello raked in the chips and now has about 910,000 in chips.

The action folded to Matthew Waxman in the cutoff and he raised to 20,000. The button folded and Mark Evangelista in the small blind three-bet to 57,000. Waxman took his measured time before calling as the dealer spread a {9-Spades}{3-Spades}{3-Clubs} flop.

Evangelista open-jammed 257,000, and after rechecking his hole cards, Waxman announced a call.

Evangelista: {J-Clubs}{J-Hearts}
Waxman: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}

With Evangelista dominated, the {3-Hearts} and {8-Spades} on the turn and river would see him sent to the rail as Waxman climbed to 1,030,000 in chips.

Richey To The Rail, Hougaard Keeps Climbing

Brett Richey
Brett Richey

Brett Richey notched up his fifth World Series of Poker Main Event cash since 2006 during this tournament, but unfortunately for him he was just knocked out by Jesper Hougaard.

Richey finished 55th last year, his best result to date, and this year he will have to settle for a result in the low 300s.

The man who has two runner-up finished in pot-limit omaha events moved all in for 109,000 from middle position and Hougaard, the first player to win bracelets in both Las Vegas and Europe during the same year, called from the cutoff.

Hougaard: {K-Hearts}{K-Clubs}
Richey: {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs}

The board ran out {9-Spades}{4-Spades}{8-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} and Richey hit the rail. Hougaard, who was down to not a whole lot earlier, now sits on a nice stack during his fourth Main Event cash since 2007.
