Calenzo Out

Pitt's Aces are Good

• Nivo 15: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

Colby Pitt - (x) (x) / {a-Spades}{4-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{2-Clubs} / (x)
Mark Provenzano - (x) (x) / {2-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} / (x)

Provenzano brought it in with the {2-Clubs}, and Pitt completed with the {a-Spades}. The action folded back to Provenzano who called, and he also called bets on fourth, fifth and sixth street. On seventh, Pitt slowed down, checking to Provenzano who fired a bet. Pitt called, and Provenzano opened up {6-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{9-Hearts} for absolutely nothing. Pitt tabled {a-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{10-Clubs} for a pair of aces, and shipped the pot.

Bloch Sends Stjean to the Rail

• Nivo 15: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

Bloch: (x)(x) / {k-Spades}{a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{2-Spades} /(x)
Buchman: (x)(x) / {q-Spades}{6-Clubs} FOLDED
Stjean: (x){8-} / {6-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} / (x)

We caught the action on fourth street, where Andy Bloch bet and was raised by Larry Stjean. Eric Buchman called, and then Bloch put in a third bet. Stjean just called, and Buchman decided to get out of the way. Both players checked fifth street before Stjean checked called for the remainder of his chips on sixth street with a pair of eights, and was drawing thin against Bloch's {j-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} in the hole for two pair. Seventh street was no help for Stjean, and Bloch took down the hand with two pair to increase his chip total to 70,000.

Break It Up

• Nivo 14: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Players are now on a 15-minute break.

Table Redraw

• Nivo 14: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

With the elimination of Jungblut, the 24 remaining players are now redrawing for the final three tables. All of these players are guaranteed at least $3,711.

Gank Gone

• Nivo 14: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Brett "Gank" Jungblut has been eliminated from the tournament. We missed the hand, but he told us that he was drawing to a flush against an opponent who had tens-up. On seventh his opponent was dealt another ten - giving him a full house - and Jungblut no longer had a sweat.

Wise Out

• Nivo 14: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante
Alex Wice - eliminated
Alex Wice - eliminated

Just a half hour ago, Alex Wise was one of our chip leaders. Now, he's eliminated.

Bryan Devonshire - (x) (x) / {k-Spades}{2-Hearts}{6-Spades}{7-Clubs} / (x)
Alex Wise - (x) (x) / {9-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{5-Spades}{j-Spades} / (x)

Devonshire completed with the {k-Spades} showing, and Wise came along for the ride with the {9-Diamonds}. Devonshire led out on fourth, Wise called, and both players checked on fifth. On sixth, the two got three bets in, and Wise was all in for his tournament life.

Devonshire: {2-Clubs}{7-Spades}
Wise: {j-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}

Wise was drawing to a better two-pair, but that became irrelevant when Devonshire picked up the {2-Hearts} on seventh to give him an unbeatable full house. Wise was dealt a meaningless {6-Clubs}, and headed towards the rail.

Brown Busted by Buchman

• Nivo 14: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Buchman: {a-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} / {j-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{7-Clubs} /(x)
Brown: (x)(x) / {q-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{8-Spades} / (x)

Eric Buchman is absolutely on fire here in level 14. Shortly after busting Yarron Bendor, Buchman just added another notch to his belt, and this was a big one. Chad Brown came in for a raise on third street, and Buchman reraised him. Brown then check called fourth street, before committing the last of his chips on fifth street when the four came. Buchman called and revealed that he had a pair of jacks and that Brown would need to improve. He wasn't able to, as Brown had just king high by the end, with the {k-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} in the hole. Buchman is now the chip leader with 147,000.
