Chad Kitchen open-shoved from the cutoff for ~425,000 and Andrew Boccia reshipped from the small blind to get a quick fold from Jeff Trudeau Jr in the big.

Boccia: KsKc
Kitchen: AhJs

Kitchen was in bad shape against the kings, caught a piece of the Jd5h4d flop but it wasn’t enough as the board finished Ts and 2s to send him out in sixth place.

Karl Manouchakian

Karl Manouchakian took a major hit to his stack via Jeff Trudeau Jr. Unable to recover, he was eliminated a short time later in seventh place. Here’s how the hands went down:

Trudeau raised to 60,000 from early position and Manouchakian defended his big blind.

The flop fell Jh9c6s and Manouchakian checked. Trudeau bet 50,000 leaving himself about 250,000 behind. Manouchakian raised, sliding in a pile of blues in the pot that had Trudeau covered. Trudeau called off and it was showdown.

Trudeau: KdKh for an overpair
Manouchakian: KcTh for king-high and a gutshot

Turn and river: 2sJs

Trudeau’s pair was best. His stack was counted down to 255,000 and Manouchakian pushed a pile across the table. Manouchakian was left with just over 300,000 and went bust a few moments after when his AcTs was ran down by Filipp Khavin’s KsQh AIPF.

Filipp Khavin – 1,500,000 (50 bb)
Jeff Trudeau Jr. – 680,000 (22 bb)

Justin Zaki

Justin Zaki recently butt heads with Matthew Leecy and was left with only 120,000 after the dust of their hand settled. It played out as follows:

Zaki popped it to 60,000 from early position. Leecy was behind him in middle-position and made it 175,000 to go. The action mucked around, sending it back to Zaki. He called and the dealer burned and turned.

Flop: Qs8s6h – Zaki checked. Leecy bet 175,000. Zaki called.

Turn: Qs8s6h4s – Zaki checked. Leecy bet 335,000. Zaki called.

River: Qs8s6h4s – With a big pot built, the action got more deliberate. Zaki checked a third time and Leecy went into the thinktank. After a minute or two, he pulled out a mix of white and blue chips good for a 650,000 bet. Zaki called leaving himself only about 120,000 behind.

Leecy turned over As7s for an ace-high flush. Zaki’s hand hit the muck.

It was a short while later Leecy raised to 65,000 from early position and Zaki jammed his last roughly 120,000 from the big blind. Leecy called and turned over QhTc. Zaki’s AcKd was best, but Leecy flopped a 10 to send the Florida pro him in eighth place.

Matthew Leecy – 3,600,000 (144 bb)
Justin Zaki – Eliminated in 8th place ($13,944)

Matt Leecy opened to 60,000 from under the gun and it folded around to Andrew Boccia on the button. He moved all in for 505,000 to get a fold from the blinds. Leecy thought for half a minute and called.

Boccia: 9s9c
Leecy: AsTc

It was a coinflip and the all-low 7d3h2s7h5h run out was good for a Boccia double.

Jeff Trudeau Jr

Action folded to Justin Zaki and he opened to 60,000 from the button. Jeff Trudeau Jr moved all in from the small blind for 250,000 and Matt Leecy folded his big. Zaki did not wait long before he called to put Trudeau at risk.

Zaki: Ad5s
Trudeau: Ah6d

“Chop?” Trudeau laughed.

He was ahead but a chop was a real possibility after the KhQd3d flop but Trudeau locked up the double when he paired the 6s turn. Zaki was drawing dead to the Kd river and sent some chips to Trudeau.

The preflop action folded all the way around to Jeff Trudeau Jr. in the small blind. He called and Matthew Leecy promptly raised his option to 95,000 total in the big. Trudeau called and it was flop time.

Flop: Th8h5c – Trudeau checked. Leecy bet 110,000. Trudeau called.

Turn: Th8h5c5h – Trudeau checked again. Leecy bet again, this time 130,000. Trudeau called again.

River: Th8h5c5h7d – Trudeau checked a third time. Leecy bet a third time, 190,000. Trudeau through for a few moments, then slid forward two stacks of gray — a call.

Leecy turned over JsJd and Trudeau’s cards hit the muck.

Amelio Amato

On the second hand after the break, action folded around to Amelio Amato in the small blind and he moved all in for 355,000. Jeff Trudeau Jr took a quick peek at his cards and called.

Trudeau: Ad9c
Amato: Qs3c

Amato was live for a double, needed to catch, but missed the KsTd6d6c2h board to exit the final table in ninth place.

“Can we spread out a little to get that VIP experience,” Karl Manouchakian asked.

“Gotta make room for those guns,” Ken O’Donnell joked. “Karl will be in seats 3 through 6 today.”

Ken O’Donnell

The early action at the final table is pretty low key with the average stack sitting at 69 big blinds to start. The blinds went up but they’re still sitting 55 bigs deep so they are settled in for the grind.

The only big pot of notice went down between Ken O’Donnell and Jeff Trudeau Jr. O’Donnell opened to 45,000 from early position and Trudeau three-bet to 118,000 from the button. O’Donnell put in a fourth bet to 225,000 and Trudeau called to see the 9h6s3s flop.

O’Donnell tossed out a handful of blue 25K chips and Trudeau quickly folded.

Matt Leecy leads coming back for the Main Event final table

Only nine players remain in the Tampa Poker Classic Main Event and they return this afternoon for the last day of the tournament to play out the final table. One player is set to walk away with the title along with more than $112,000 and Matt Leecy returns with the best shot.

He leads the returning players with nearly 1.8 million but he has some tough competition behind him with Justin Zaki, Andrew Boccia, Jeff Trudeau Jr, Filipp Khavin, Ken O’Donnell, Amelio Amato, Chad Kitchen and SHR Tampa regular Karl Manouchakian trying to chase him down.

The stacks are deep and the structure is slow. Our first ever Tampa Poker Classic Main Event champion will have to work for it today in what we expect to be a long battle for the title.

The Main Event final table is set with nine players remaining and they will return on Monday at noon to play it out for the title.

Matt Leecy leads the way with Ken O’Donnell not far behind. Amelio Amato has the shortest stack but his 24 big blinds will still give him room to make moves.

Overall, the average stack sits at 69 big blinds at the restart so they will be in no rush to mix it up.

Everyone is guaranteed at least $11,245 but they all want to the $112,245 top prize as the Tampa Poker Classic Main Event champion.

Vitor Coelho

Before much of ado and counts were completed, Ken O’Donnell opened to 40,000 from under the gun and Vitor Coelho called in the small blind to see the 8c5c3s flop. Coelho checked, O’Donnell bet 30,000 and Coelho check-raised all in for ~320,000.

O’Donnell snapped a call as fast as possible.

O’Donnell: KdKc
Coelho: JcJd

A final table cooler for Coelho and he could not find a lucky save on the Qc turn or 7c river to exit in tenth place. He took home $9,462 and the rest of the table prepared to bag up for a return tomorrow.

Paul Vlahos

Paul Vlahos sent a double to Vitor Coelho and was left with 168,000. Those went in the middle from the cutoff and Justin Zaki was the only caller.

Vlahos: QhQs
Zaki: AcJh

Vlahos was looking good until Zaki smashed the AhJdJs flop. The board finished Kh and 5s to send Vlahos out in 11th place while setting up the final table ten.

Justin Zaki – 1,420,000 (89 bb)
Paul Vlahos – Eliminated in 11th place ($9,462)

Andrew Boccia was down to 76,000 and open-shoved from the cutoff. Matt Leecy called on the button, Chad Kitchen folded his small blind, and Jeff Trudeau moved all in from the big blind to get a quick fold from Dandrea.

Trudeau: 9s9c
Boccia: AdQh

Boccia was racing to stay in the Main Event and caught the river on the Td7c6dJcQc to triple up. It was barely a blip on the other stacks.

Andrew Boccia – 176,000 (11 bb)

Ioannis Patsourakis

We had two quick doubles after dinner with Amelio Amato and Vitor Coelho getting a reprieve. Soon after, Ioannis Patsourakis opened to 32,000 from under the gun and Karl Manouchakian defended his big blind to the Qs6s4h flop.

Manouchakian checked, Patsourakis bet 40,000 and Manouchakian check-raised to 150,000. Patsourakis announced all in and Manouchakian quickly called the 320,000 shove.

Manouchakian: Qd6h
Patsourakis: KsJs

Patsourakis was on a flush drew against Manouchakian’s two pair but blanked the Ah turn and 7d river to exit in 12th place.

Karl Manouchakian – 1,350,000 (84 bb)
Ioannis Patsourakis – Eliminated in 12th place ($9,462)
