Setbacks Don't Make Newhouse Hold Back

[user20283] • Level 25: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Just moments after doubling up a player Mark Newhouse was back at it again. Newhouse raised to 85,000 and this time it was Gianfranco Visalli who moved all in over the top. Visalli was all in for 570,000 chips and Newhouse tanked for a bit before tossing in the call.

Newhouse: {K-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}
Visalli: {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}

The board ran out {8-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{10-Hearts} and Visalli was knocked out with Newhouse hitting two pair.

Bozinovic Finally Dents Newhouse

[user249920] • Level 25: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
Vladimir Bozinovic doubled through Mark Newhouse.
Vladimir Bozinovic doubled through Mark Newhouse.

Mark Newhouse's seemingly unstoppable upward climb has finally been halted.

He opened on the button to 80,000, and Vladimir Bozinovic made it 220,000 in the big blind. Newhouse shoved all in, and Bozinovic called off his 1.715 million.

Bozinovic: {k-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}
Newhouse: {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}

The flop was massive for both: {a-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{k-Clubs}, giving Newhouse aces up and Bozinovic a set of kings. The {j-Hearts} helped Newhouse slightly as he added an extra out to possibly make quads, but the {8-Spades} river kept Bozinovic's kings full good.

Kyle Keranen raised to 100,000 in middle position and the action folded to Anh Van Nguyen, who moved all in for 620,000 out of the big blind. Keranen went into the tank.

"You have a small pair?" he asked Nguyen, who remained still, staring at one spot on the felt. "Pocket fours?"

Keranen thought a little longer, then finally released his hand.

"Everybody's gotta eat, man," Nguyen told Keranen as he raked in the pot.

"Nah," Keranen disagreed. "I want every chip in this tournament."

Newhouse Grabs Lead; Pahuja Eliminated During Level 24

[user249920] • Level 24: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante
Mark Newhouse

The final 20-minute break of the night has commenced.

Bruno Politano’s long reign at the top of the chip counts has finally ended, as he’s slipped to fifth during the past level, being overtaken by Mark Newhouse (7.2 million), Kyle Keranen (6.2 million), Scott Palmer (6.1 million), and Tony Ruberto (5.45 million). Politano still has plenty of chips with about 5.2 million.

Keranen had gotten into a rivalry with Curtis Rystadt, but took the role of big brother as he busted Stewart in a monster pot of over 4 million with the nut flush. Apparently, Keranen had gotten so fed up with Rystadt’s trash talk that he had complained to the floor. The knockout had to be sweet for him.

Scott Palmer dragged a huge pot from Mikiyo Aoki on his way to a top stack.

Mukul Pahuja, one of the hottest tournament players in the world, saw his deep run end during the level. On a flop of {a-Spades}{q-Hearts}{6-Hearts}, he had {a-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} for aces up only to run into the {a-Hearts}{q-Spades} of Zachary Hirst. Pahuja was unable to find a third six and hit the rail in 101.

Other notables seeing deep runs come to a disappointing end included Simon Charette (103rd), Jonathan Aguiar (105th), Manig Loeser (107th), Farid Jattin (109th), Vladimir Shchemelev (114th), Byron Kaverman (123rd), and Timothy Reilly (125th).
