The final nine have returned for minor placings to be decided – and after only one and a half levels there are only six left!
The action was so fast nay the time I returned with a coffee the ninth player had been eliminated and was walking to the cage so I can’t reveal the hands to you.
Christophe eliminated in 9th position
Eliminated by Lisa Shanahan who is building on her already impressive chip stack.
Joelle eliminated in 8th position
Andrew “Maddog” Shanahan and Joelle got it all in on a flop of:-
2h 3c 5d
When the cards were exposed, this is why we saw :-
Joelle – Jh Ac 2d Ah
Maddog – 3d 3s 8s 8c
Maddog’s set of 3’s was well in the lead with Joelle looking for an Ace, running hearts, a 4 plus some other running cards to unlikely to mention …
Maddog makes another set on the turn!
Maddog takes out Joelle and builds the chip tower a little taller!
Constantine eliminated in 7th position
It would all go in pre-flop (again) Constantine’s tournament life on the line with Tetsuya making the call.
Constatine – AKJ9
Tetsuya – AQK4
The board J Q 6 6 2
Ace queen wins the pot and we lose another player.
Tetsuya eliminated in 6th position
Probably the strongest player on this Omaha table, Tetsuya has been a regular visitor to the shores of New Caledonia for the NCPO at APT events.
Tetsuya was all-in pre flop with two callers, Joseph and Maddog
Flop 5d Ah 7c
Joseph makes a 1/3 pot sized bet and Maddog folds
Tetsuya shows – Ks 10s 8d 7d
Joseph shows – 3h 6h 5c 7h
Tetsuya holds a pair of 7’s against two pair and needs a King or a ten to take the lead, straight draws up and down – running flush etc etc … in terrible shape!
Two pair holds and Tetsuya is eliminated 6th
We have five players left in the hunt, two Australians and three French! Who will take the trophy???
