Busted last level in both flights of Bay 101. Really trying to muster the desire to go to Thunder Valley, but seems unlikely. #MissCashGames— matt berkey (@berkey11) March 12, 2014

12k goin into last two levels of the night.— Joe Kuether (@jkuether3) March 12, 2014
106,850 last break going to 400/800. Played 3 pots in those 2 levels. All went well— Matthew Affleck (@mcmattopoker) March 12, 2014
Barry Greenstein was all in with [9c][8c] vs. his opponent's [Js][Td] on a [7h][9s][Ks][8h] board. Barry had two pair but would need to fill up as his opponent had the nut straight. The [Qd] river fell to send Barry to the rail and award the winner his Shooting Star bounty.
Meanwhile, Daniel Negreanu was eliminated after getting all in on a [5s][Ts][7h] flop with [As][7s]. Daniel's opponent flopped two pair with [Tc][7d], but Daniel was still 43% to win with flush and bigger two pair draws. The [Js] was just what Daniel needed, and he was now a 93% favorite to win as long as a ten or seven didn't hit the river. But alas, the [7c] popped up on the river to give an improbable elimination. Daniel was a Shooting Star yesterday but not today, so no bounty was awarded.
Ryan Riess's day was going along swimmingly after he won an all in after rivering a straight to beat two opponents, one of whom flopped top set. But more recently, Ryan ran pocket kings into to pocket aces, and was left with roughly 6,000 chips at 200/400 blinds.
It didn't take him much time to put them to good use. Ryan moved all in with [9s][9d] and found a call from Dan Heimiller who held [5c][3c]. It looked as if the defending World Series of Poker champ would be out the door after the dealer fanned the [Tc][3h][5h] flop, but Ryan found the [Th] on the turn to counterfit Dan's flopped two pair. Ryan needed to dodge a three or a five on the river to survive, and the [Td] river gave Ryan an unnecessary full house.
Ryan now sits on approximately 13,000, and he still has plenty of work to do before he is back to an average stack.
