We’ve lost one more player in Event 36 and we’re down to a final table of seven. This final table has been anything but slow with various players trading places for the chip lead and all-in shoves on almost every hand. It’s anybody’s guess who will walk out of this thing alive.
Here are the latest updates:
Jordan Smith bet 80,000 from the cutoff and Andrew Seden decided to jam the pot for his last 350,000. Smith called and flipped over A♠ 6♠. Seden could only shake his head as he showed K♠ J♠ having all his flush outs cruelly eliminated. The board came A♦ K♣ 8♣ 7♦ Q♦ to finish off Seden. On the bright-side he will receive $67,867 for his efforts.

Bad Card for Laurence Grondin
Laurence Grondin has been one of the biggest surprises of this tournament. The petite, tattooed woman has made a habit of aggressive play that has mostly worked out to her favor.
Sometimes poker is a fickle game, however, and Grondin just experienced that first hand.
In the hand Grondin bet 70,000 from middle position and Pat Atchison made the call from the button. The dealer put down 9♣ 8♦ 4♣ for the flop and Grondin C-bet to 95,000. Atchison wasn’t going away, however, as he fired 200,000 back.
Grondin made the call and then slowed her game down by checking the 6♥ turn. Atchison thought he read weakness and opted to move all-in.
Grondin insta-called and threw down T♦ 7♦ for the nuts. Atchison flipped over 7♣ 7♥ and, although he had some outs for a straight to chop, looked like he was about to give Grondin a huge double-up.
Instead the river came T♠ to complete Atchison’s straight and deny Grondin the full pot. That’s poker!
