From 4 handed to 2 in a snap, as Joseph Umdenstock traps Eric Siegel, only to have the deck bail out the aggressive Siegel.
Joseph limped the SB with , and Eric overreacted, shoving 350,000 with pure trash, . Umdenstock snapped him off, but the board ran out absurdly, on the flop, but a hit the turn or river, crippling Umdenstock.
Cheerful all tournament, this beat affected Joseph U., who looked more grim and determined. However, he would not escape more trouble.
Instead, variance favored Barry again. Much as he had been cornered by Lisa Pickell, Barry cornered Umdenstock when he shoved second pair into Barry’s top pair. Would the poker gods flatten Barry out in return?
No. Joseph U. did not improve, and takes 3rd for $4,220.
Heads up begins after some preliminary discussion leads to no where but a restroom break. Barry begins with 22,000,000, Eric with 700,000.
No all in over the first twenty minutes. A ten high pot is split. Barry overall is still in charge and has pushed Eric down to 600,000.
No action for Barry with the nuts on beyond the flop – the tournament could have ended there.
