Moussa Doubles Through Graydon

Action started with Bassel Moussa raising all in from under the gun to 322,000. Michael Graydon was next to act, and he shoved all in, having the rest of the table covered. Everyone else folded, and the cards were tabled.

Moussa: {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}
Graydon: {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}

The board ran all low cards, coming {8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{5-Spades}, and Moussa doubled up to 650,000, while Graydon drops to 1.05 million.

Christopher Odonnell Eliminated in 15th Place ($29,803)

Action started with Steven Goldberg raising in early position to 55,000. It folded around to Christopher Odonnell in the hijack, and he went into the tank for about 90 seconds. Eventually, he moved all in for his last 450,000. It folded back to Goldberg, and he quickly made the call for most of his stack.

Goldberg: {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}
Odonnell: {k-Hearts}{q-Spades}

The flop was a tough one for Odonnell, as it came {a-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{j-Spades}. He would need a ten and a ten only now to survive. The turn brought the {5-Spades}, and the river came the {9-Hearts}. Goldberg collected the bounty, effectively doubling his stack, while Odonnell hit the rail.

An International Group Of Players Left

• Nivo 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

We are down to our final 15 players, and we noticed when looking at the chip counts that there were a lot of flags represented. We did the counts, and there are nine countries represented in this event. We have six Americans, and two players from the Czech Republic.

After that, we have a player from Ireland, Italy, Great Britian, Denmark, Australia, Germany, and Lebanon. Will an American take home a bracelet on Independence Day? The odds aren't in their favor at this point!

Borg's Bluff Fails

Dmitrii Valouev raised to 45,000 and David Borg called from the big blind. The flop came down {7-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{9-Spades}, and Borg checked.

Valouev grabbed chips and fired out 55,000. Borg upped the stakes to 125,000, and Valouev moved all in for a total of 264,000. Borg didn't see this coming, he tanked for a bit and folded.
