First Bracelet for Lindgren!

Erick Lindgren has done it! Defeating online young-gun Justin "ZeeJustin" Bonomo to take down the bling and the $374,505. Bonomo had high expectations for getting a bracelet this summer but will have to settle for second and $230,159. Read on for all the gory details.

E-Dog Does the Deed

Justin Bonomo began this match with a slight chip advantage but was worn down by Lindgren's relentless onslaught of aggression. Soon the tables had turned and it was Lindgren enjoying the larger of the two stacks.

More onslaughting and relentlessful play from E-Dog left Bonomo dangerously low going into the final hand.

The Death Blow

Lindgren opened from the button to $80,000 and Bonomo made the call. The flop came down T 5 3. Two checks later the turn brought the 4.

ZeeJustin fired $80,000 and Lindgren smooth-called. The river was the 8 and Bonomo fired again. This time Lindgren opted to raise, setting his opponent all-in. Bonomo made the call and tabled 5 4 for the turned two-pair. Lindgren did him one better and laid the A 2 down on the felt.

As there were no more cards to come E-Dog's wheel straight was good for the pot, the elimination and the win! Moments after the win Lindgren talked to PL.com about it all right here!

Robl Robbed (3rd)

Much to the dismay of the hoards of fans he had in the crowd, Andrew Roble is out third and we are now heads up. Justin Bonomo bet three times the big blind in front of Robl and the ShipItHolla Balla shoved in.

Zeejustin snap called and Robl looked like a slight favorite to double with A 2 to Bonomo's Q 5.

Andrew Robl
Balla busto!

All that changed drastically on the Q 9 8 flop and the Balla got no help from the 10 turn. When the 6 river fell Andrew "Nice2CU" Robl was sent packing fourth and will grab $144,337 for his efforts.

Now heads up Bonomo has $2.2 million to Erick Lindgren's $1.8 million.

de Wolfe Done (4th)

Roland de Wolfe has said his final goodbyes on the ESPN stage after getting his chips in good but failing to prevent Justin Bonomo from rivering him.

de Wolfe started the action in the hand making it $48,000 from the button while Bonomo called from the small blind.

ZeeJustin checked the 8 6 2, but when de Wolfe bet $85k he raised all-in. de Wolfe made the call for his tournament life and his K 8 was ahead versus Bonomo's A 9. The J turn kept him there. But when the Q peeled off on the river de Wolfe was sent to the rail in fourth ($117,030).

Roland de Wolfe
de Wolfe destroyed!

Thanks to the massive hand Bonomo is closing in on the $2 million chip mark and in command.

Now three handed Erick Lindgren has $1,430,000 in chips and Andrew Robl just $347,000.

Event 4 - Level 21 - Here We Go!

We're back from the dinner break and quickly and down to just four players. E-Dog Erick Lindgren has begun to take command and looks poised to grab his first ever WSOP bracelet, but only time will tell if Lindgren can get the monkey off his back.

Rheem Reamed (5th) $93,624

David Rheem came in to the final table with the chip lead but it didn't hold. The man they call Chino made it $50k to go pre flop from under the gun in what would be his last hand of this event. When it got around to Roland de Wolfe in the big blind he made the call. The A 10 4 was checked by both players.

David Rheem
Rheem runner-runnered!

The turn was the 9 and after de Wolfe checked Rheem bet. Once again, de Wolfe flat called taking us to the 8 river where de Wolfe checked, Rheem shoved and the call was made.

Roland was wielding the Q J for the straight and after Rheem mucked he was off to collect $93,624 for fifth.

Lindgren Grabs The Lead

Full Tilt Pro Erick Lindgren made it $33k to go before the flop and chip leader Justin Bonomo made the call. The flop fell 6 9 J and after ZeeJustin checked, E-dog fired out for $50,000.

Laying in the weeds, Bonomo decided to check raise it up to $140k and after a minute to think, Lindgren flatted him. The turn brought the 3 and Bonomo slowed down a bit deciding to check.

Erick Lindgren
Not a big dog anymore!

Not wanting to get check raised again, Erick checked behind him and the river brought the 7. Once again, Bodog Bonomo checked, but Lindgren would have none of it, sending a $220,000 bet in the middle.

Justin laid it down and Lindgren has grabbed the chip lead hovering around the $1 million mark.

Event 4 - Level 20 - Whoa Nelly!

The last hour has seen not one, but two eliminations and we're down to just five players in the battle for the bracelet. Justin Bonomo and Erick Lindgren are in almost a dead heat for the chip lead and and would be controlling the table right now if they hadn't just headed out on a 60-minute dinner break.

Lederer Latered! (6th)

Mr. Full Tilt Howard Lederer made a raise from the before Bodog's new boy Justin Bonomo bumped it up from the big blind. Lederer flat called and Bonomo decided to bet before the flop rolled out. Leder then announced he would raise all in the dark and we were finally treated to the 5 2 K.

Howard Lederer
Professor: Taught a lesson!

The players stayed true to their words and the cards were turned over with Lederer holding 4 4 and Bonomo the A Q. Howard kept the lead when the 5 turn fell but the K was a different story. The board showed to pair and Lederer had been counterfeited. Thanks to Bonomo having the best kicker the Professor is headed to the cage to grab $74,199 for sixth.

Williams Wasted! (7th)

David Williams has left the building and he's taking the $58,515 he just won for finishing in 7th with him.

His final started with David "Chino" Rheem bumping it up from under the gun. Williams then raised and Rheem repopped him. With few other choices left Williams reraised all in and Rheem called. David held A 3 and was the slight favorite over Rheem's K 10 until the flop fell 10 5 8.

David Williams
Ace ball, no times!

The turn and river brought no help for Williams and he hit the rail.

Event 4 - Level 19 We Lose Another

Seven players now remain in the mixed limit event, whilst the crowd has lost a few spectators to the $10k mixed event.

Robl Is Too Slick

David Rheem raises to 24,000. Pat Pezzin moves all-in and Andrew Robl also moves all-in with Rheem folding. Pezzin can only show A-Q to Robl's A-K, the board offers no help and Pezzin is out in 8th place winning $46,812.

Dave Beats Dave

Back into the limit, David Rheem raises, and David Williams 3-bets. Rheem bets again and Williams moves in, Rheem calls and shows K T, Williams shows A 3 but is outdrawn on the T 5 8 6 7 board and is out in 7th place winning $58,515.

Choppity Chop

Suddenly we're getting a lot of chopped pots here in the limit section. First Justin Bonomo and Roland De Wolfe split a pot when then both make Aces up. Next, De Wolfe and Rob play a pot where they both show A-J on the river for another chopped pot. Finally Howard Lederer ends up all-in with A-J too against Robl's A-J, he's freerolling a flush draw on the turn but misses.

Event 4 - Level 18 All-ins Aplenty

And the final table has begun here in the Amazon Room, with a very tough field, Erick Lingren is looking for his first bracelet, as is Roland De Wolfe, who if he wins today, will become only the second player to complete the triple crown of WPT, EPT and WSOP bracelet wins.

Erick Lindgren
E-Dog going good.

The Classic 57-43

In the second hand of the final, Issac Haxton is out in 9th place winning $35,109 after his A K couldn't defeat Erick Lindgren's Q Q on a 6 2 5 8 7 board. 'E-Dog' has never won a bracelet, but might just be in line to pick up his first here today.

Ten Of Clubs? It's Good To See You

After the exit of Haxton, Andrew 'Good2cu' Robl doubled up the very next hand, he re-raised Justin Bonomo's opening raise of 16,000 to 42,000. Howard Lederer re-raised to 142,000. Bonomo folded and Robl dwelt up before moving all-in and being called.

Lederer showed A A whilst Robl held T T, the latter's supporters screamed "Tenball!" non-stop and were rewarded when the board came out K Q 5 T 8

Time For A Switch...

The game now moves over to limit hold'em, David Williams raises preflop and Eric Lindgren 3-bets from the big blind, William making the call. The flop comes out 9 6 6 and Erick check calls a flop bet from Williams. The 5 turn and K river are checked by both players and Lindgren's A Q is good.

Roland de Wolfe
Roland robbed.

Wolfe Dogged

Roland De Wolfe raises preflop and Erick Lindgren called. Roland bet every street of the K 3 9 5 Q with Erick calling him the whole way before check/raising the river. Roland made the call with A-K only to find Lindgren had rivered him with K-Q.

And Then Doubles...

Soon after, the Brit was all-in against David Williams on a 4 6 J board with 9 9 against Williams' 7 7. The turn was the 9 and now Roland had to avoid spades, he did just that, catching the J to house him up and keep him in the event.
