Event 12: Movin' On Up

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

Table 20 was broken and Mike McGuinness (Toms River, NJ) was moved to table 4 with the ladies.  He wasted no time tangling up with Elizabeth Gray-Pardo.

 Mike McGuinness

On a flop of 9 5 4, Mike got all his chips in and called by Elizabeth, who held pocket 8s.  Mike's pocket 5s had flopped a set and left her drawing to just two remaining 8s, or runner-runner for a straight.

The last two came 2 9 and Mike filled up to double-up.  He's now sitting behind about 770k and challenging for the chip lead.  Elizabeth was left with less than 100k.

William Hart has grown his field-leading stack to about 820k.
