Jonathan Tamayo Eliminated In 4th Place ($84,516)


Aaron Steury looked to continue bullying his fellow players and raised to 80,000 from the small blind. Jonathan Tamayo made the call and the flop came {Q-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{5-Spades}. Tamayo's last 70,000 chips went into the middle and we were off to a showdown.

Tamayo: {Q-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}
Steury: {Q-Clubs}{6-Spades}{4-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}

Tamayo had flopped top pair but was trailing Steury's two-pair, queens and fives. The chip leader also held an open ended straight draw and Tamayo would need help on the turn or river. The {6-Clubs} on the turn only improved Steury's hand, giving him queens and sixes and Tamayo was down to his last chance, needing a nine, ten or ace to fall on the river.

River: {J-Diamonds}

With that, Jonathan Tamayo was eliminated in 4th place and he will take home $84,516 for his deep run.

Aaron Steury Pulling Away At Final Table


Adam Friedman raised to 80,000 from the small blind and Aaron Steury made the call from the big blind.

Flop: {5-Hearts}{8-Spades}{9-Clubs}

Friedman led out for 40,000 and was raised to 80,000 by Steury. After Friedman made the call we saw a turn card of {9-Diamonds}. Friedman check-called a bet of 80,000 and the river fell {A-Diamonds}. Another check-call by Friedman prompted Steury to table his {6-Spades}{7-Hearts} for a flopped nut straight and Friedman immediately mucked his hand.

Steury followed this win with another one against Michael Chow in Omaha-8 and he has now amassed over 2,300,000 chips.

After calling bets by Steury on all streets, Tamayo found himself all-in on sixth street and tabled his down cards: {6-Spades}{4-Hearts} for a 2-3-4-6-7 low. Steury flipped up his {9-Clubs}{9-Spades} in the hole for two-pair, jacks and nines.

Tamayo F-razz-ling Final Table

Nivel 26


Jonathan Tamayo: (X)(X) - {Q-}{8-}{J-}{2-}
Michael Chow: (X)(X) - {4-}{K-}{7-}{Q-}

Chow bet on third street and Tamayo came along. On fourth street, a series of bets and raises forced Tamayo all-in for his remaining chips and he tabled his hole cards: {4-}{3-} for a 2-3-4-8 low. Chow revealed his {7-}{5-} down cards for a 4-5-7-Q and Tamayo was well ahead.

The {5-} on seventh street completed Tamayo's hand, giving him a 2-3-4-5-8 low, and Chow's {8-} did not improve his hand. Tamayo scored a much needed double-up to move to 260,000, while Chow dropped to 820,000.
