Level 22: 6,000/12,000 with a 2,000 ante
Players Remaining: 7 of 178

Raffaello Locatelli raised to 31,000 from middle position and Wally Maddah defended his big blind. They went heads up to an Ah5h4c flop. Maddah checked and Locatelli bet 36,000. Maddah called.

The turn fell the Kd and Maddah checked again. Locatelli raised the bet, pushing forward 88,000. Maddah thought for a bit, then matched the bet sending the action to the river.

The river board

Fifth street came the 2d and Maddah kept up his story, checking a third time. Locatelli kept up his story, too, doubling down by shoving forward an all-in bet. The amount was 218,000 and Maddah him covered only slightly. After a couple agonizing minutes of thought, Maddah called.

Raffaello Locatelli river shove

“Can you beat a seat?” Locatelli said turning over 2s2c for a rivered set.

Maddah couldn’t, frustratingly tabling AxJx for top pair. He was left nearly bust — one big blind — while Locatelli stacked a pile.

Raffaello Locatelli – 715,000
Wally Maddah – 18,000

Martin Ryan

With four seconds remaining in the day, Alan Throw was eliminated in eighth place to set the seven-handed final table. The redrew seats, played one hand to run out the clock, and bagged up for a 1pm return tomorrow.

Martin Ryan will return with a healthy chip lead as he shoots for his tenth WSOPC ring but he has a lot of talent trying to chase him down.

Phil Hui

Another 45-minute level is nearly in the books and we lost two players in recent action with six WSOP Circuit rings (and one WSOP bracelet) walking out the door.

SHRP and WSOPC champ Raminder Singh exited the tournament in 12th place and he was followed by five-time WSOPC winner Phil Hui.

11th: Phil Hui – $1,576
12th: Raminder Singh – $1,576

Bryce McVay

With the elimination of WSOP Circuit winner Justin Sharpe and former SHRP champ Paul Balzano, the Six-Max event is down to the last two tables.

Bryce McVay is way out front with 790,000 heading in the penultimate level of the day and looking for his first WSOPC ring after several close calls. He has ten WSOPC final tables to his credit, including Event 1 to start the series, but he’s waiting for the jewelry.

13th: Paul Balzano – $1,137
14th: Justin Sharpe – $1,137

Event 7: No Hurry; No Worry

Fred Dabus cashed in another SHRP event

The stacks are still deep in the Six-Max event, 42 big blinds average, so there’s no hurry at the moment. They took a break as the 500 denom chips came out of play and did the grind for most of a 45-minute level with only four players hitting the payout desk.

15th: Edward Jaffy – $1,137
16th: Riley Fuller – $1,137
17th: Fred Dabus – $1,137
18th: Jose Parra – $1,137

Event 7: James Salmon Eliminated on the Bubble

Level 18: 2,500/5,000 with a 500 ante
Players Remaining: 18 of 178

It was a long process playing into the Event 7 money. Taking two minutes off the clock per hand, they went through more than a love to lose one player.

That one player was former SHRP champ, James Salmon. He was all in for 52,000 with KsQd against Kd8h but was unlucky on the 8h5s2hKcQd run out. Salmon almost found a save when another player at risk at a nearby table, but a river flush left Salmon as the sole player eliminated.

There’s plenty of talent still in contention for the title including Phil Hui, Justin Shape, Martin Ryan, Raminder Singh, John Holley, Bryce McVay, and Paul Balzano.
