Fluss Crippled, then Eliminated

• Nivo 15: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

Schwartz: (x)(x) / {6-Spades}{7-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} FOLDED
Fluss: (x)(x) / {10-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{2-Spades} / (x)
Landry: (x)(x) {5-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} / (x)

Marc Fluss lost most of his chip stack on the hand above, where he raised after Ylon Schwartz completed. Kai Landry then reraised, and both players came along. All three players checked fourth street, with Schwartz taking the bet lead on fifth. Both players called, then Landry bet out on sixth aafter it was checked to him. Schwartz folded, but Fluss stuck around to the river, where both players checked. Landry flipped up {q-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{q-Diamonds} for two pair, and Fluss flipped up {8-}{10-} for a pair and missed straight draw.

Shortly after that, Fluss was eliminated when his split kings failed to improve against Eugene Katchalov's wired pair of aces.

Kai Landry - (x) (x) / {9-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} / (x)

Landry completed with the {9-Clubs} showing, and Devonshire raised with the {2-Spades} showing. Landry called. Landry then called bets from Devonshire on fourth and fifth, only to raise him on sixth street. Devonshire called.

On seventh, Devonshire checked (intending to check-raise he later said) and Landry checked behind. Devonshire tabled {j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} for jacks and deuces, but Landry showed {j-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} for a winning flush.

Devonshire is left with only 20,200 chips, while Landry is up to 105,000.

We caught up with the action on fifth street, where Deeb and Ghaneian got four bets in. Ghaneian did not raise on sixth however, opting just to call Deeb's bet. On seventh, Deeb check-raised Ghaneian, who called, and Deeb showed {k-Hearts}{a-Hearts}{10-Hearts} for trip aces. Ghaneian mucked, and Deeb is up to 92,000 chips.

Provenzano: {8-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} / {a-Spades}{j-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} / {k-Spades}

Mark Provenzano was all in for less then one big bet on third street, and he went heads up with Marc Fluss. Fluss hit his board pretty hard, making aces up on fifth street and improving to a full house on seventh. Provenzano was never able to catch up at any point in the hand, and was eliminated.

Weiss: {7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} / {a-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{q-Spades} / (x)
Isaia: {k-Clubs}{k-Hearts}/ {9-Hearts}{4-Spades}{3-Clubs}{3-} / {9-Hearts}

Stephen Wise has just been eliminated from the tournament. We saw him raise on third street, only to have Alessio Isaia reraise him. Weiss called, then checked call on fourth and fifth street, where he was all in. Weiss revealed sevens in the hole, while Isaia revealed kings in the hole for two pair. Isaia unneccessary improved to kings and nines on seventh, and Weiss was drawing very thin to survive. He took a look at his last card, then mucked his hand and headed to the rail.
