Notables and Eliminations

Day 1a of Saturday saw a number of recognizable faces such as John Dolan, Ryan Lenaghan, Kathy Liebert, Dwyte Pilgrim, Chris Tryba, and Kyle Cartwright. Things however did not end well for these players as they were eliminated during the day. Of course, there were those of course who went on and proceeded to take another shot at it during the day 1b of Saturday, but unfortunately for Chris Tryba and Dwyte Pilgrim, things really weren’t going their way and they went bust for the second time.

A Quad of 3’s

Chris Tryba was eliminated the second time when he attempted to go for his 10-9 spades. Unfortunately for Tryba, one of his opponents raised. Later on, Tryba shoved all in, only to be snap called by the opponent. The board read 3, 10 and 3 during the flop, which gave Tryba a pretty good couple of pairs. His two pairs however, were no match for his opponent’s quad of 3’s as Tryba’s opponent already had the couple of 3’s preflop.

Dwyte Pilgrim on the other hand saw his elimination when he had a seemingly superior hand to his opponent at first. Pilgrim had the superior A-K compared to his opponent, who had A-3 . Unfortunately for Pilgrim, the board read 2, 9 and 3 during the flop. His opponent, Frank Wiese just shoved all in with his A-3. Pilgrim was then left to gamble for it, which he eventually went for. The turn and river cards both improved Pilgrim’s hand, but sadly for Pilgrim, so did they to Wiese’s as the two cards were a couple of A’s. Pilgrim’s three of a kind was no match for Wiese’s full house.

The Top 5 Spots

At the end of the day, Charley Leroi managed to let his stack grow up to the point where he was the leading chip holder. Of course, things are still to be determined as he is closely followed by a couple of players, Rex Clinkscales and Brian Senie with 109,000 and 105,500 chips respectively. Tied on fourth place are players Greg Whitworth and AJ Jejelow, both having 85,500 chips as James Henson settles in for the 5th leading spot with 84k.
