PokerNews blogger Josh Cahlik has been eliminated. He got the last of his money in preflop with {A-}{J-} against two players — one holding {A-}{K-} and the other holding {A-}{10-}. Despite a jack in the window, a king flopped and then turned to eliminate Cahlik from the tournament.

Guillen Doubles with Aces

After the player in the hijack seat raised to 625, Angel Guillen reraised all in from the cutoff seat for 2,200. The button and blinds all folded before the hijack seat quickly announced a call.

Guillen tabled the {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds} and was in good shape against his opponent's {3-Spades}{3-Clubs}. The flop, turn and river ran out {K-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{J-Spades}{8-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} and Guillen doubled up.

Guillen is coming off of a solid performance down in Uruguay for the Latin American Poker Tour Punta del Este Main Event where he finished in second place for $126,240. That's a nice, hefty score, but it's actually only the third largest of the Mexican professional's career.

In 2009, Guillen had a great year on the live felt, earning himself just under a million dollars and blasting onto the poker scene. After finishing in the money in the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event for $27,500, Guillen took third in the LAPT Punta del Este Main Event for just shy of $100,000 in May. He then took to the World Series of Poker and placed second in the $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em event for $312,800 behind Keven Stammen. Just over a week later, Guillen was right back at another WSOP final table, but this time he took care of business and won the $2,000 No-Limit Hold'em event for $530,548. In total, Guillen has over $1.2 million in live tournament earnings.

Speaking of Guillen, Sarah Grant "wedged herself" between him and Andre Akkari earlier today.

Glantz Out


Matt Glantz has been eliminated. We're unsure of how the money went in, but when we arrived at the table, Glantz's {K-}{J-} was laid out against an opponent's {A-}{A-} on the {Q-}{5-}{2-}{9-}{7-} board. We're assuming the money went in preflop, but either way, Glantz is out the door.

Gates Busts 2004 Main Event Champ


Greg Raymer raised to 450 and Garry Gates called from the small blind. The flop came down {J-}{6-}{2-} with two hearts and Gates checked. The 2004 World Series of Poker Main Event champion fired 500 and Gates called.

The turn was an offsuit {3-} and Gates checked. Raymer checked behind. The river then completed the board with an offsuit {9-} and Gates fired 3,000. Raymer tanked for a bit and then called, leaving himself with just 100 chips behind. Gates showed a set of sixes and Raymer mucked his hand.

"All you had to do was make it an extra 100," said Raymer. Either that or he didn't care." Raymer then busted two hands later.
