Thorsten Schafer Eliminated in 17th Place ($25,348)

Thorsten Schafer - 17th place
Thorsten Schafer - 17th place

Action folded to a short-stacked Thorsten Schafer in the cutoff and he out in a standard raise. Both the button and small blind folded, but Jason DeWitt pushed back with a reraise from the big blind. Schafer then moved all in, DeWitt called the additional chips, and it was time to show their holdings.

Schafer: {K-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}
DeWitt: {A-Spades}{K-Spades}

Schafer was sharing a king with DeWitt, but his queen was far behind his opponent's ace. The {5-Clubs}{A-Hearts}{9-Hearts} flop was disaster for Schafer as it paired DeWitt's ace. The {3-Hearts} turn and {J-Hearts} river changed nothing and Schafer's day came to an end in 17th place.

We didn't catch all the betting, but Chris Moorman was all in preflop holding {Q-}{J-} against the {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades} of McLean Karr. The {6-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{K-Spades} provided Moorman an open-ended straight draw, but neither the {7-Hearts} turn nor the {K-Hearts} river filled it. Moorman was eliminated in 18th place for $25,348.

Takashi Ogura Eliminated in 19th Place ($20,129)

Owen Crowe potted in early position only to have Sam Stein repot. Takashi Ogura then called off from the big blind and Crowe got all his money in as well.

Stein: {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}
Crowe: {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}
Ogura: {J-Spades}{J-Diamonds}

Ogura held the best hand preflop, but he quickly went from first to worst when the flop came down {8-Spades}{A-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}. Crowe had flopped a set to take a commanding lead, one he held as the {10-Hearts} hit the turn followed by the {6-Hearts} on the river. Crowe tripled on the hand while Ogura was eliminated in 19th place.

Mike Matusow Eliminated in 20th Place ($20,129)

Mike Matusow - 20th place
Mike Matusow - 20th place

Action folded to Robert Mizrachi in the cutoff and he raised to 29,000. Mike Matusow was next to act on the button and potted. The blinds cleared out of the way and Mizrachi moved all in. Matusow called all in for a total of 200,000 or so and the cards were turned up.

Matusow: {A-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}
Mizrachi: {K-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}

Matusow desperately needed an ace, but found none on the {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{10-Spades} flop. However, the {A-Hearts} spiked on the turn and left "The Mouth" jumping up and down shouting, "Yes! Yes! Yes!" As it turned out, Matusow's celebration was a little premature as the {K-Spades} rolled off on the river.

"Nooooo," Matusow bemoaned in good humor. He knew he had gotten lucky on the turn and didn't seem to mind the sweet justice of the river. Matusow was eliminated in 19th place.

Diamonds Are Solomon's Best Friends

• Nivel 20: 6,000-12,000, 0 ante

A mountain of chips surrounded the board of {5-Diamonds} {A-Diamonds} {7-Diamonds} {6-Diamonds}. Jarred Solomon checked, Jason DeWitt bet 75,000 and Solomon called. The river was the {K-Diamonds} putting an ace-king high flush on the board.

Solomon checked, followed by a check from DeWitt and Solomon turned over {Q-Diamonds} {9-Clubs} for the highest flush he could hold. DeWitt mucked his hand not having a diamond. Solomon said he was scared of the straight flush.

Jennifer Tilly Eliminated in 21st Place ($20,129)

Jennifer Tilly - 21st place
Jennifer Tilly - 21st place

On a flop of {K-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{5-Clubs}, Jennifer Tilly led out for 35,000 only to have Nicolas Levi put in a raise. Tilly called off for about 60,000 more and discovered the bad news.

Tilly: {3-Clubs}{2-Clubs}
Levi: {Q-Clubs}{10-Clubs}

Both players had flopped a flush draw but Levi's was the better of the two; however, the {3-Diamonds} turn delivered Tilly a pair and the lead. Obviously this is an elimination post, so you know the river was not kind to the Academy Award-winning actress. Indeed, the {Q-Spades} rolled off to give Levi a pair of queens and the win. Tilly was eliminated in 21st place.

Marco Traniello Eliminated in 23rd Place; Binh Nguyen in 22nd ($20,129 each)

Binh Nguyen - 22nd place
Binh Nguyen - 22nd place

Tommy Vinas raised to 25,000 under the gun and was met with a reraise to 90,000 by Marco Traniello in the hijack. When the flop came down {2-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}, Vinas check-called Traniello's all-in bet of 150,000.

Traniello: {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}
Vinas: {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs}

Traniello held pocket rockets but it was no good against the flopped set of Vinas. The {3-Diamonds} turn and {4-Clubs} river provided no help to Traniello and he became our 23rd-place finisher.

At the same time, Binh Nguyen was eliminated from a neighboring table in 22nd place for $20,129.

Somerville Muscles Tilly

• Nivel 19: 5,000-10,000, 0 ante

On the button Jennifer Tilly reraised Jason Somervile preflop. Somerville four-bet 135,000 more. Tilly sat back in her seat and counted her stack. She had 155,000 and had a short tank while thinking.

"Do you have a pair?" Tilly asked Somerville, who didn't reply and didn't look up. She kicked her cards into the muck and lamented, "No one ever folds to my raises."
