Edit: Nvm, it starts at 1am on ESPN2.

Newhouse out in 9th :(

Edit: Now Politano.
Have to say that this is looking very easy for the big stacks at the moment.

Basically he came in playing far too many hands - we've seen over the years that 'tight is right' - Newhouse came in and typical of his style was very swingy. Then the following hand happened... at the start of the hand, Newhouse had 22m.

Mark Newhouse Eliminated in 9th Place ($730,725)

Hand #56: Andoni Larrabe had the button.

Jorryt van Hoof opened to 1.1 million from the hijack and Mark Newhouse came along from the cutoff. With the action on Will Tonking in the small blind, he three-bet to 3.75 million and van Hoof quickly mucked before Newhouse called.

The dealer spread a {2-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{J-Hearts} flop. Tonking led out for 3.5 million with Newhouse making the call. The {4-Hearts} landed on the turn and Tonking went into the tank before checking, then Newhouse bet out 4.5 million. Tonking called.

The river brought the {J-Clubs} and after the New Jersey native checked again, Newhouse moved all in for 10.2 million.

After about a minute of deliberating, Tonking announced a call and Newhouse flipped over his {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}.

However it would be Tonking's {Q-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds} that would see him scoop the pot to send Newhouse to the rail in back-to-back 9th places for a $730,725 payday as Tonking soared to the chip lead with roughly 48.5 million in chips.

Would love a Pappas/Jacobson HU but it'd be a helluva final table if it gets to that from here :shifty: :mrgreen:

Trying to avoid spoilers, started watching the final table last night but was still 9 players when I fell asleep.

I want to watch the whole stream at some point, so if anyone finds a link please let me know.

Edit: Found the first hour: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwpHDwTLzc4

Enjoy - I had a look for some YT links but couldn't find anything aside from the one you've got.

The guy who uploaded the one you found will probably upload all of them.

Sick final 3 skill wise. Compared to the dog awful heads up last year this will be class.

Reading the summary is sounds like Jacobson gave an absolute masterclass is exploitation shoving.

He did - he was so restricted as a shortstack and has absolutely bossed the table since chipping up. He's played fantastically.

Martin Jacobson. :wub:

I have to say I was equally impressed with the level of authority than Van Hoof imposed on the table when playing down from 9 to 3 as I was with the patience and calmness Jacobson exuded throughout.

It wasn't always the most exciting FT but enjoyable enough.

Still trying to avoid this thread as I'm only halfway through watching the main event final table. :lol:

Anyhow, had my first half-decent cash in a while with $280 for 8th place in $5 MTT.
Was 9th going into the final table but the guy on the right got knocked out in the 2nd hand with 55 < QQ.

After that the big stacks prevented me from making any moves and I didn't get any cards, so the first time it folded to me on BTN I pushed 8BB with K2s against the two other shortish stacks and one of them woke up with JJ.

Happy with $280 though as was short stacked for a long time once we reached three tables and so was expecting to only get about $100.
