Austin Reilly

Austin Reilly opened to 260,000 from under the gun and Justin Sharpe three-bet to 625,000 next to act. The rest of the table released and Reilly announced all in. Sharpe quickly called the 1,470,000 shove and they were off to the races.

Sharpe: TdTh
Reilly: KhQh

Reilly needed to improve his two suited live cards but blanked the AdAs4s4h2h run out to fall short of his third WSOPC ring.

Justin Sharpe and David DiBernardi were heads up to a Tc4h2h flop and Sharpe checked from the small blind. DiBernardi bet from the cutoff for 170,000 and Sharpe check-raised to 475,000. DiBernardi called, the turn came 5s and Sharpe bet 685,000.

Another call from DiBernardi and Sharpe moved all in for 1,925,000 after the 2s. DiBernardi thought it through for a few minutes and called. Then quickly mucked when Sharpe showed Ah3s for the wheel to double big.

Philip: QhQd
Sharpe: Ac8s

Jason Earl Eskridge opened to 200,000 from the button and Jacob Ferro moved all in from the big blind for ~850,000. Eskridge snapped a call and Ferro was in trouble.

Ferro: KdQc
Eskridge: KhKs

Ferro needed a lot of help and found some hope on the Td9d3s flop. The Qd gave him 11 outs on the river but he blanked the 5h to exit in eighth place.

Nicholas Baurichter

Luis Galicia Garcia had the short stack to start the final table and hit the payout desk on the first hand. Shortly after, Nicholas Baurichter was all in for 255,000 with Simon Philip and Austin Reilly with live hands.

Philip checked the AhTh4c flop and Reilly bet 100,000. Philip folded and Baurichter chuckled and they tabled their cards.

Baurichter: AsAd
Reilly: AcJs

Baurichter was ahead with his set of aces and the rest of the table said “uh oh” when the turn came Qd. The Kc river was bad news for Baurichter and Reilly sent him out with the Broadway straight.

Austin Reilly – 2,650,000 (44 bb)
Nicholas Baurichter – Eliminated in 9th Place ($8,941)

John Utley

John Utley and David DiBernardi had two of the biggest stacks remaining and they went to battle against one another. In a three-way pot with the board reading 9d7d7s, the big blind player bet 250,000 and DiBerandi raised to 625,000. John Ultey called from the small blind after his check and the big blind released.

The turn came 2d and Utley checked once again. DiBernardi bet 750,000 and Utley moved all in for 2,925,000. After confirming the count, DiBernardi called and his nut flush Ad5d was ahead of Utley’s 8d6d.

Utley had one out, the Td for a straight flush, but he sent the big pot to DiBernardi after the 9s river. DiBernardi moved up to 8,130,000 (of 24.1 million in play) while Utley had to settle for $5,881.

David DiBernardi

Simon Philip

David Kolodny found a good spot to double into contention for the Event 2 final table. He open-shoved from early position and Simon Philip reshipped next to act. The good news for Kolodny was his pocket queens were dominated Philip’s pocket jacks. The bad news was when Philip turned a jack to send him out. Philip moved up to 1,525,000 while Kolodny collected $4,847.

That was one of the last hands of the level and the 14 remaining players are taking a short break.
