David Gunas with the “Money Cape”

The first break has come and gone with ten players remaining and nine of them trying to catch Brian Altman at the top of the counts.

David Gunas is now sporting his traditional “money cape” at the final table. We first saw it when he won his first WSOP Circuit ring during the series at Hollywood and again when he finished second in Event 4 last week.

Richard Whitebrook

Richard Whitebrook open-shoved for 220,000 from middle position and it folded all the way around to A.J. Kelsall in the big blind.

“I really wish you were looser,” Kelsall told him. “It would be an easy call if you weren’t tight.”

Kelsall ended up calling with a chance to send the SHRP regular out.

Kelsall: Ks9s
Whitebrook: As5d

Whitebrook looked good for the double and the 7s7c2h flop changed nothing. The 8s turn was safe but Kelsall added a flush draw to the mix. The Kd river paired Kelsall’s king to give im the hand.

A.J. Kelsall – 800,000 (27 bb)
Richard Whitebrook – Eliminated in 13th place ($15,072)

Jason Hill

Staying with the early theme, Kammar Andries opened to 75,000 from the button and Jason Hill moved all in for 280,000 from the big blind. Andries called with a chance for three straight knockouts to start the day.

Hill: Ad2d
Andries: AhJs

“Again, you don’t even have to make a pair!” AJ Kelsall joked with Andries.

This big ace was outflopped on the 6h5h2h board but Andries slid his Ah forward to remind everyone he had the nut flush draw. The 5s turn was a blank and Hill doubled after the 3c river.

Jason Hill – 595,000 (20 bb)
Kammar Andries – 1,920,000 (64 bb)

Karthik Ramakrishnan

On the next hand, after Joe Elpayaa was sent out, Kammar Andries was at it again. Karthik Ramakrishnan open-shoved for 325,000 and Andries called. The button and blinds released and Andries had back-to-back big aces.

Andries: AdQh
Ramakrishnan: JcTc

Ramakrishnan had two live, suited, connected cards but neither paired or made a flush or straight on the 8s3h2d5s5h run out. Ramakrishnan was eliminated in 14th place and that result was good enough to send him to the top of the race for the Casino Championship.

Kammar Andries – 1,925,000 (64 bb)
Karthik Ramakrishnan – Eliminated in 14th place ($15,072)
