Frank - 15th Place

With his recent elimination in 15th place, Frank Kassela is now on his way to the other side of the Amazon Room to take part in the Event 18: $2,500 Seven Card Razz.

The last hand of Kassela's night began when Matt Matros opened to 26,000 from under the gun. Randy Christing called on the button and then Kassela three-bet all in from the button. Matros made the call and Christing got out of the way as Kasella got to his first, turning over {a-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}.

Matros held {a-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} and would need some help to take down the hand. The help didn;t come on the {5-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{6-Spades} flop, but the {a-Diamonds} turn was a good one for Matros. A brick on the river and it was all over for the 2010 World Series of Poker Player of the Year

The remaining players are about to embark on the final 60-minute level of the evening.


Currle and Radoja Trading Chips

We came to Table 440 with a board showing {7-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{k-Spades}{8-Hearts} and Jonathan Currle and Mark Radoja rumbling in a hand. There was already a fair chunk of change in the pot at this point and Radoja had fired out 16,000 on the river. Currle popped it back to 81,000 and it was back on Radoja who thought for a while before flicking in the call.

"I have two-pair," said Currle as he tabled {k-Hearts}{8-Spades}.

It was good enough to take down the pot and see his stack increase to one of the larger ones in the room.

Asad Goodarzy Eliminated in 18th Place ($17,323)

Asad Goodarzy - 18th Place
Asad Goodarzy - 18th Place

The first elimination after our table redraw has just occurred. The player in question was Asad Goodarzy. It was all-in preflop for Goodarzy holding {3-Clubs}{3-Hearts}. Unfortunately he would run into the {4-Clubs}{4-Spades} of Mark Darner and by the time the {10-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{7-Clubs} board had run out, it was all over in 18th place for Goodarzy.
