End of Level 20: Limits 8,000/16,000
Total Entries: 89
Players Remaining: 9
Average Stack: 198,000
On the last hand of O/8, Joel Gumbiner scooped a pot from Jeff Jerome and chipped up to ~357,000. Jeff was left with only 83,000.
The game changed, but Joel’s hot streak did not. He pulled the first pot of Razz, taking his stack close to 400,000 and possibly the chip lead.
Wendy Freedman then tangled with Ross Hoffman. He completed on third and she made it two bets, which he called. They were heads-up with her betting 4th and 5th streets and getting called. Ross led on 6th and Wendy raised. Again he called.
After their final cards were delivered, Wendy bet, Ross raised, Wendy made it three bets and Ross flatted.
Wendy produced 4 3 2 in the hole for a 6-4 low. In a weird coincidence, their hands were almost identical with Ross holding 5 3 2 as well, but his 4 was paired so his best low was a Jack-6.
Wendy scooped the big pot.
End of level and the final 9 head off on a break.
