Antoine Saout Eliminated in 15th Place ($90,700)

• Nivo 24: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante
Antoine Saout - 16th Place
Antoine Saout - 16th Place

Pascal Lefrancois was in the hijack and opened with a raise. Antoine Saout was two seats down on the button and announced a three-bet to 133,000. Action folded back around to Lefrancois and he took his time moving out a four-bet to 314,000.

Saout thought for a moment before he began stacking up green T25,000 chips. He pushed forward a tower that totaled 581,000 for a massive five-bet. Lefrancois came right back over the top with an announcement of a six-bet shove. Saout called and the hands were turned on their backs.

Saout: {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}
Lefrancois: {K-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}

Both players were close in chips but it was actually Saout who was all in and at risk for his tournament life, as Lefrancois had him covered by just 68,000. Saout went to the community cards looking for an ace, but found no help on the {10-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} flop. The board paired deuces with the {2-Hearts} on fourth street, meaning Saout would have to drill the ace on the final card to stay alive.

It was not meant to be, however, as the {4-Spades} completed the board and eliminated Saout from play. He will collect $80,700 in winnings while Lefrancois has vaulted into the chip lead. He's now sitting on 4.6 million for the largest stack in the room.

Allon Allison - 15th Place

Shyam Srinivasan opened to 52,000 from early position, Allon Allison moved all in for 1.19 million from the small blind, and Srinivasan called the near 50-big blind shove.

Srinivasan: {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}
Allison: {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs}

Srinivasan held a dominating hand, and extended his lead when the flop came {q-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{2-Hearts}. Allison was drawing dead after the {8-Spades} turned, and a meaningless {6-Clubs} completed the board.

Allison busted in 15th place, earning $90,700, while Srinivasan chipped up to 2.97 million.

Tom Hall opened to 48,000 in early position, Mike McDonald called in the cutoff, and Shyam Srinivasan three-bet to 165,000 on the button. Hall folded, McDonald called, and the flop fell {j-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{6-Spades}. McDonald check-called a bet of 210,000, the turn was the {5-Spades}, and McDonald checked again.

Srinivasan fired out 355,000, McDonald called, and the {5-Clubs} completed the board. Both players knuckled, McDonald showed {j-Hearts}{10-Hearts} for a pair of jacks, and Srinivasan flashed {a-Spades}{k-Spades} before mucking.

Silver Applies Pressure

• Nivo 24: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante

Fabian Ortiz opened with a raise to 52,000 only to have Max Silver three-bet the action to 135,000. Ortiz called to see a flop and the two looked down as {A-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{7-Spades} hit the felt.

Ortiz checked to the raiser and Silver continued out for 120,000. Ortiz came over the top for 250,000 total. Silver put the pressure right back on Ortiz by moving out a three-bet to 575,000. Ortiz went into the tank for about a minute before finally deciding to ditch his cards. Silver was pushed the pot and has moved his stack up to 3.2 million.

Adrian Bussman Eliminated in 17th Place ($80,700)

Adrian Bussman

He won with a jack-high.

Shyam Srinivasan raised to 50,000 on the button, Max Silver three-bet to 125,000 out of the small blind, and Adrian Bussman moved all in for 442,000 from the big blind. Srinivasan folded, and Silver called.

Silver: {j-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}
Bussman: {5-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}

Bussman remained ahead after the {a-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{6-Clubs} flop, but the {6-Spades} on the turn gave Silver extra outs to counterfeit the Swede. Silver called for an eight, which would chop the pot, but the Brit took it all when the {a-Diamonds} completed the board.

Silver won with effectively jack-high, sending Bussman off in 17th place. There are two tables remaining, but there will be no redraw.

Tom Hall raised to 48,000 from early position and it folded around to Robert Auer in the cutoff. He announced an all in three-bet for 516,000 and it folded back to Hall who moved forward a call.

Hall: {A-Hearts}{10-Spades}
Auer: {K-Spades}{Q-Hearts}

Hall was out in the lead with ace-high heading to the flop and further extended his lead after pairing up with {A-Spades}{2-Spades}{8-Clubs}. Auer made a pair with the {Q-Diamonds} on the turn, but was ultimately eliminated after the {4-Clubs} finished off the board on the river.

Hall raked in the pot and now has 1.76 million in chips.

Roger Teska Eliminated in 20th Place ($70,700)

Roger Teska - 20th Place
Roger Teska - 20th Place

Roger Teska consumed several adult beverages during play the past two days, and after this bad beat to knock him out of the 2014 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event, he may be off to have some more.

The action folded to the American in the small blind, and he raised to 62,000. Madis Muur moved all in for effectively 857,000, and Teska tank-called.

Teska: {8-Spades}{8-Clubs}
Muur: {6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}

Teska was a big favorite heading into the flop, but after the dealer fanned {3-Clubs}{4-Spades}{5-Clubs}, Muur had a 36 percent chance of winning the hand. The {9-Spades} on the turn was a blank, changing nothing, and Teska was one card away from doubling up to over 1.7 million.

Unfortunately, it wasn't to be for Teska, and the {2-Spades} spiked onto the felt, giving Muur a straight. The American is eliminated in 20th place, earning $70,700, and Muur is over 4.23 million chips.
