Perry: {x-}{x-} / {2-Diamonds}{q-Spades}{3-Spades}{j-Hearts} / {x-}
Pace: {x-}{x-} / {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{7-Spades} / {x-}
Lee: {x-}{x-} / {4-Hearts}{k-Spades}{2-Clubs}{10-Spades} / {x-}

Ralph Perry was down to his last 10,000 after the redraw, and those chips went in the middle on the first hand of the final two tables. Mack Lee and Randall Pace both made the call, and from there, Pace led out all the way until seventh street. Lee came along each time, and on seventh, both players.

Pace revealed {a-Hearts} {q-Clubs} {3-Clubs} in the hole for a pair of aces, and Lee wasn't able to beat that, as he mucked his hand. Perry was drawing very live, showing the {8-Spades}{4-Spades}. He could catch a low and/or a flush on seventh, but he squeezed his card, and showed the {k-Clubs}. That wouldn't get the job done, and he was eliminated in 16th place.

On the other table, Matusow was able to get a full triple up, when he made a low on sixth street, and a flush on seventh to get back up to 100,000.

David Levi was all in on fifth street with a pair of fours and three cards to a low. His opponent, Dustin Leary, had a pair of queens. Leary's board ran out to give him three queens, while Levi could only muster finishing with a pair of fours.

With his elimination, Levi took 17th place for $6,551. The field moved to just 16 players left and we will post the redraw shortly.

James Van Alstyne Eliminated in 18th Place ($6,551)

[user68268] • Nivo 19: 6,000-12,000, 1,500 ante


James Van Alstyne({8-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}) / {4-Spades}{4-Hearts}{6-Spades}
George Danzer({8-Spades}{4-Hearts}) / {5-Spades}{6-Hearts}{7-Clubs}

Former World Series of Poker gold bracelet winner James Van Alstyne was all in on fifth street after he bet and George Danzer raised him all in. Van Alstyne called and showed that he had two pair, eights and fours, with three cards to a low. Danzer had made a straight on fifth street and also had an eight low.

Van Alstyne picked up the {A-Spades} and {10-Spades} on sixth and seventh, respectively, but that wasn't good to keep him alive. Danzer finished with the {A-Clubs} and {A-Diamonds}, keeping his eight-high straight and eight low the winning hand.

Van Alstyne finished in 18th place and earned $6,551.

Danzer Bounces Back

• Nivo 19: 6,000-12,000, 1,500 ante

Well as soon as we were talking about how rough a day Danzer has had, he takes two big pots to get back up to his starting stack of the day. We missed the first one, but on the second one, we saw him take a ton of chips from Mike Matusow. We caught the action on the turn, with the board reading {j-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}. Matusow check called a bet from Danzer, and the same happened when the {3-Hearts} hit the river. Matusow reluctantly called, saying "you probably have aces." Sure enough, Dazner rolled over {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{8-Clubs}, and Matusow mucked.

With that pot, Danzer is all the way back up to 180,000, while Matusow plummets to 38,000.

Ahmed Scoops Danzer

• Nivo 19: 6,000-12,000, 1,500 ante


It hasn't been a good start for last year's runner up George Danzer. He came into today as one of the top five stacks, but he has quickly lost two big pots, and is now one of our shortest. We caught up with the action between Danzer and Owais Ahmed on the flop, which read {8-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}. Ahmed checked, and Danzer bet out. Ahmed put in a check raise, and Danzer called. From there, Ahmed bet the {k-Hearts} on the turn, and the {7-Clubs} on the river. Danzer called both times, and Ahmed tabled {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}{4-Spades}{8-Clubs} for aces and sevens with an ave-four low. Danzer looked at his cards, said "I should have scooped that pot," and mucked his hand, dropping him down to 75,000. Meanwhile, Ahmed rocketed up to 270,000, putting him near our chip leaders.

David "Bakes" Baker({6-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}) / {6-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}

Picking up the action on fourth street, Kristopher Tong checked before David "Bakes" Baker bet. Tong check-raised, and Baker called. On fifth street, Tong led with a bet, and Baker raised all in. Tong called and revelaed his trip kings. Baker had a pair of sixes at the time, but also three cards to a low.

Tong picked up the {10-Clubs} on sixth, and Baker added the {7-Clubs}. Tong finished with the {5-Spades} on the river and had just trip kings. Baker had a straight draw and a low draw, but the {6-Hearts} gave him trip sixes and that wasn't good enough to give him any of the pot. He was eliminated in 19th place and earned $6,551 for his finish.

"Good Call Mike"

• Nivo 19: 6,000-12,000, 1,500 ante


Danzer: {x-}{x-} / {5-Spades}{3-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} / {x-}
Matusow: {x-}{x-} / {a-Hearts}{7-Spades}{q-Spades}{8-Spades} / {x-}

George Danzer completed after Mike Gorodinsky brought in, and Matusow was the only caller. From there, this was the action on every single street: Matusow would check, Danzer would bet fairly quickly, and Matusow would call. After he was called on seventh, Danzer said "just threes." Matusow asked if he had a low, and when Danzer said no, Matusow proudly showed the {7-Hearts} in the hole for just a pair of sevens, which was good enough to take the nice pot. "Good call Mike," is all Danzer could say as the chips went Matusow's way.
