Welcome to the third and final day of action in the $10,000 World Championship of PLHo tournament here at the 2009 World Series of Poker.
Play started an hour ago with fourteen survivors still in contention for a $633,335 first prize and after sixty-minutes of action we've lost four of that lot already.
Here's the scoop:
Patterson Caked (14th)
Thomas Patterson entered the day with the short stack and wasted little time in making a move, getting all-in with J♦ T♥ against Billy Kopp's A♦ 5♣.
The flop brought an ace and Patterson couldn't recover, busting out instead in 14th place and earning $43,091 for his efforts.
Lennaard Nimoy'd (13th)
Controversial Swedish pro Ken Lennaard was next to go when his re-steal attempt from the small blind failed against button Isaac Haxton, who had raised preflop with A-K.
Lennaard had Q♥ T♥ and was drawing dead by the turn when two aces flopped. Haxton filled up on the river to add insult to injury and Lennaard was gone.
Kamran Man-Rammed (12th)
Michael Kamran raised the pot from the button and Billy Kopp put him all-in from the big blind. Already committed to the pot, Kamran made the call, turning up J♠ 9♠ and finding himself behind Kopp's A♦ 7♦.
The board brought a seven and three queens and Kopp's boat was more than enough to send Kamran to the rail, where he took a $57,645 payout for his time.
Kopp Robbered (11th)
After Davidi Kitai opened the pot from the hijack, Billy Kopp re-raised from the button and the action folded back to the Belgian Winamax pro.
Kitai thought it through before opting to flat call and the flop came 8♥ 4♦ 3♦.
Kitai checked to Kopp, who bet the pot and saw himself raised all-in. He made the call for his tournament life, turning up A♦ Q♦ for the naked flush draw against Kitai's pocket jacks.
The turn and river ran 4-8, both black, and Kopp was dishonorably discharged in 11th place, for which he'll earn $57,645.
Thus ten-handed, the field is playing out one more elimination before moving to the feature table.
