After playing three handed for about an hour, the final three decided to take a look at the numbers. After each player gave up a bit to get Clayton Holloway up to over $75,000, a deal was struck! Jerry Snell will take home the lion's share of the prizepool, $85,855, but all three of them will walk home with over $50,000.
Congratulations to all three players, and thank you to everyone who came out for this year's Summer Poker Series. We are taking two weeks off before we return on Sunday, July 28th, for the 2019 Legends of Poker series! Don't miss it!
1. Jerry Snell - $85,855 2. Clayton Holloway - $75,745 3. Andy Chang - $52,290
After a raise from Clayton Holloway, Sang Lee moved all in. Holloway thought about it for a bit before calling, but he didn't look thrilled about it.
Lee: [Ad][10d] Holloway: [Ac][2c]
Holloway was in rough shape, but that quickly flipped after the flop came down [10c][7c][6c], giving Holloway the nut flush. Lee would need running cards for a full house now, but the [Qc] on the turn sealed the deal.
This leave us with just three players now. Jerry Snell asked if they wanted to look at the numbers, but Holloway shot it down, so we play on. Here is how the final three stack up, with the blinds at 150,000-300,000. Jerry Snell - 28,900,000 Clayton Holloway - 21,000,000 Andy Chang - 7,800,000
Jerry Snell has just taken a stranglehold on this final table, after scoring a huge double knockout to get us to the final four players.
Action started with Daniel Song moving all in from under the gun. It folded to Parker Lee, who thought for a bit before moving all in for about five million. Snell was in the big blind, and he immediately sat back in his chair, and said "wow." After just a few moments of thought, Snell said "ok I'm all in too."
Snell: [Jh][Jd] Lee: [Ad][10h] Song: [Qd][Js]
Despite there being just one jack left in the deck, it would come on the flop of [Jc][10d][9h]. Lee was drawing very thin now, but Song could still triple up with a king or an eight. The board finished out [6s] and [3c], and Snell scored the double knockout.
After that pot, Snell has about half of the chips in play four handed.
Action folded to Parker Lee on the button, and he moved all in for just over two million. Daniel Song quickly called in the big blind with [Kd][Kc], and he was dominating the [Ah][7c] of Lee. The hand looked all but over after the flop came down [Ks][9d][6h], as Lee got up to start to head to the payout desk.
However, the dealer quickly burned and turned the [10c] turn and [8c] river, giving Lee a straight. He didn't realize it right away, nor did the rest of the table, and a delayed audible groan was let out by most of the table. Lee doubled up to just under 5,000,000, while Song is now the short stack with 2.5 million after those back to back tough hands.
Daniel Song and Clayton Holloway were heads up on a flop of [Ac][10s][8s], and Song check called a bet from Holloway. Both players checked the [3d] turn, and the river brought the [2s].
Song checked, and Holloway though for just a few moments before shoving all in. It was a big overbet of 6,700,000, as there was only about four million in the pot, and Song quickly told the table "wow I'm gonna need a couple of minutes on this one guys."
He later said that he had two pair, and thought for just about the two minutes before he called with [Ah][2h]. It was no good though, as Holloway rolled over [As][9s] for the nut flush.
Andy Chang, Kevin Babayan, and Clayton Holloway all saw a flop of [Qc][6s][8d]. Action checked to Babayan, who moved all in for about 5 million. Chang didn't take long to call for alittle less, and Holloway quickly got out of the way.
Babayan: [Ah][Jd] Chang: [As][Qh]
Babayan picked the wrong time to make a move, and he would need runner runner to win the hand. A six on the turn ended it, and Chang double up to 9.5 million.
This left Babayan with just a few big blinds, and he would get those chips in shortly after to the Ace-King of Sang Lee.
The final six are about to go on a break. We will post updated chip counts for everyone then.
Charles Silver was down to just two big blinds when he moved all in from early position. Andy Chang called, as did Jerry Snell, and the flop came down [Qh][9d][7c]. Both players checked, and the [Qs] hit the turn. Snell bet 300,000, Chang called, and the [2d] completed the board.
Both players checked, and Snell tabled [8h][8c] for two pair. It beat the pocket fives of Chang, and the [10s][7d] of Silver, who will take home $11,440 for his efforts. With that, we are down to seven players. They each will take home at least $14,670
James Alpert moved all in for 450,000, and a few seats over, Andy Chang reraised to 900,000. Parker Lee tanked for quite a bit before folding what he later claimed to be Ace-King, and the rest of the players folded as well.
Alpert: [Kh][9h] Chang: [As][Jd]
It ended up being a good fold for Lee, as the flop came down [Ad][Jh][Jc], giving Chang a full house, and leaving Alpert drawing dead to running kings or straight flush cards. The [10c] on the turn ended things though, and Chang scored the pot to get us down to the final eight.
