Continuing the earlier post about the action at the 2010 WSOP Main Event Final Table…
After Nguyen was busted, the remaining 8 of the November Nine took a break. Break lasted more than 30 minutes.
Chip Counts after first break were:
- Matthew Jarvis – 10.125M
- Filippo Candio – 15.050M
- Jason Senti – 17.500M
- Michael Mizrachi – 18.050M
- John Racener – 24.175M
- Joseph Cheong – 29.675M
- John Dolan – 39.525M
- Jonathan Duhamel – 65.575M
First hand back went to Jarvis. Nothing special. He raised to 1.175M and all folded. The next hand, Candio went all in after being reraised by Duhamel. Duhamel called and the other players folded. Candio’s AA beat Duhamel’s AKo.
A lot of the hands never made it to show down. One interesting hand was between Cheong and Dolan. Jarvis had opened with a 1.425M bet. Cheong, on the button, reraised to 3.525M. Dolan, in the small blind, called after thinking a while. Duhamel in the Big Blind folded as did Jarvis when it got around to him again. Dolan checked the flop. Cheong checked as well. Both checked on the Turn. On the River, Cheong bet 8.5M. Dolan took his time considering his options. After two or three minutes of silence, he called. Cheong turned over Ac10c to make him the nut flush.
Cheong’s Nut Flush
The best rollercoaster hand was between Mizrachi and Jarvis. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out for Jarvis who was busted, leaving the tournament in 8th place. BUT it was a stunner that brought the crowd to its feet! Duhamel opened for 1.4M. Mizrachi called. Jarvis shoved All In for about 14M. Duhamel folded, and Mizrachi called after some consideration.
Mizrachi had AdQd. Jarvis turned over 9c9h.
- Puts Mizrachi ahead with a set of Queens
- Puts Jarvis ahead with a boat: Nines full of Queens
- Puts Mizrachi ahead with a boat of Queens full of Aces! Jarvis was busted in eighth place.
