Hal Rotholz

After very little action at the final table, things blew up in one hand. It folded around to Thomas Elder on the button, he moved all in for 340,000 and Hal Rotholz called from the small blind.

“You don’t want me to wake up with a hand,” Maurice Hawkins said from the big blind.

He checked his cards and dropped in a barrel of 100K chips to cover Rotholz. He called for 750,000 total and a three-way all-in pot.

Hawkins: JcJs
Elder: 4h4d
Rotholz: 6c6h

Hawkins was in line for a double knockout but they all saw a four in the window of the AdQh4s flop. Elder took the lead for the main pot and stayed that way after the 7h turn and quad-giving 4c river. Elder tripled up, Hawkins earned a rebate from the healthy side pot, and Rotholz was eliminated in eighth place.

Thomas Elder – 1,070,000 (21 bb)
Maurice Hawkins – 2,700,000 (54 bb)
Hal Rotholz – Eliminated in 8th Place ($12,840)

There’s been little action over the first 30 minutes of the restart. Thomas Elder made a move with his short stack that wasn’t looked up, Anthony Astarita chipped up a little at the expense of Nick Palma.

But they are just relaxed and pushing around a few chips here and there.

Michael McCray

Anthony Astarita open-shoved for his 525,000 stack and Michael McCray reshipped for 565,000 from the hijack. The rest of the table folded and we saw the hands with Astarita at risk.

Astarita: TcTd
McCray: 8c8d

McCray’s pair was in trouble, picked up a gutshot draw on the 9s7d5d flop, but could not improve on the 2d turn or 3s river. Astarita doubled, McCray was down to 40K, and was gone when the big blind came around to get him.

Anthony Astarita – 1,150,000 (29 bb)
Michael McCray – Eliminated in 9th Place ($10,185)

Herbert Woodbery opened to 125,000 from middle position, Michael McCray moved all in for 350,000 from the big blind and Woodbery called.

McCray: AcKd
Woodbery: KcQs

McCray was looking good for the double and he got it after the dealer put out the Ah7d6d2c5d board.

“Everyone was pulling for the ace-king to hold, right?” Nick Palma joked with the table.

Michael McCray – 760,000 (19 bb)
Herbert Woodbery – 2,200,000 (55 bb)

James Calderaro

Nick Palma opened to 75 from the button and James Calderaro moved all in for 625,000 from the small blind. Hal Rotholz folded his big blind and Palma called at risk for 515,000.

Palma: KhKc
Calderaro: As8s

Palma had a big hand, Caldo picked up a spade draw on the Js7c2s flop but the Jh turn and 8h river sent the double to Palma.

On the next hand, Palma opened to 80,000 and Calderaro moved all in for 105,000 from the button. The blinds folded and Palma called.

Palma: KcJc
Calderaro: JhJd

Calderaro was way ahead but Palma picked up a flush draw/gutshot royal draw on the AcQc8d flop. The 8h turn changed nothing but Palma hit the 9c river for the club flush to send Calderaro out in 10th place while setting the Main Event final table.

Nick Palma – 925,000 (23 bb)
James Calderaro – Eliminated in 10th Place (10,185)
