Fung Splits the Pot But Loses a Round

• Nivo 17: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

With just less than 40,000 chips, Jesse Cohen moved all in from early position. It folded around to Anthony Fung in the small blind who quickly made the call and turned his hand, {A-Spades}{K-Spades}, face up. The only problem was that our Day 1 chip leader, Peter Hernandez, hadn't acted yet in the big blind and claimed to have {A-}{Q-}. He folded and Cohen also flipped over a suited Ace-King, {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}. The floor was called over and after the hand, Fung would be forced to sit out one round.

The board ran out {6-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{9-Clubs}{5-Spades} giving Fung a sweat, but still allowed him to at least gain something. The rail was calling for clubs the whole way and Fung turned and joked with them, "You guys aren't very nice. I already got a penalty!" They calmed down and Fung walked away with a smile because he will have 200,000 chips to come back to.

Rampone Sends Josephy Packing

• Nivo 17: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante
Cliff Josephy Eliminated in 37th Place
Cliff Josephy Eliminated in 37th Place

The final hand before the feature table broke may very well have been the biggest pot of the tournament. We caught up with the action on a board of {10-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{8-Clubs}. Cliff Josephy checked and Nicholas Rampone fired out a bet of 63,000 into an already large sized pot. Josephy made the call and we saw a turn of {2-Diamonds}. Josephy checked once more and Rampone announced that he was all in.

It was at this point that Josephy crossed his legs and let out an enormous sigh. Josephy counted all of his chips and then leaned his head back, the only phrase he could utter was "Wow". After around five minutes total of thinking, Josephy said "I call" only to hear Rampone reply "I have a full house". Rampone's {5-Spades}{5-Hearts} gave him fives full of eights and caused Josephy to send his cards into the muck.

According to Josephy's Twitter account, he held {A-}{A-} during this hand.

This massive pot brings Rampone's chip count up to around 630,000 and adds another WSOP bracelet winner to the list of people that he has busted from this tournament.

Dato Sends Another Home

• Nivo 17: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Richard Trigg raised under the gun to 8,000 and Andrea Dato re-raised all in on the button to about 130,000. Eric Ford was in the small blind with just 25,000. He thought for awhile, even apologized to the table for his extended tank, and eventually made the call. Trigg folded, claiming he had Ace-Queen which was great news for Ford. His {J-Diamonds}{J-Hearts} were up against the now underdog {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts} of Dato.

The flop came {K-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} and disappointed Ford right off the bat. He pleaded the dealer for a Jack but it wasn't to be. The {3-Clubs} and {9-Hearts} completed the board and Ford is busto.

McFarland did not look pleased.
