Event 12: Four-Way Action

$170 + $30 Deep Stack Double Play NLH (2 Re-entry)

Blinds have increased to 4k/8k with 500 antes.

A four-way confrontation took place on table nine.  Alex Takounakis of Alexandria, VA (utg) limped, then Glynn Myles of Pheonix, AZ (utg+1) raised to 27k.  Martha Patella (Massapequa Park, NY) was next to act and she flats the 27k.  Then Yves Grenon (Ottowa, ON) moved all-in.

 Table 9 Four-Way Pot

Everyone else dove for cover and it was back to Alex, who moved in for less than Yves.  Glynn opted out.  Martha gave it some thought, then open-mucked her pocket 9s.  Alex held pocket 5s and was crushed by Yves' pocket Jacks.  The board came 9 5 4 2 9 and Yves took the pot, chipping up to ~210k while Alex took the walk to the rail.  Martha was congratulated on her solid lay-down.
