Ron Lemmerman (Riverchasers)

Ron Lemmerman (Riverchasers)

After a heads up match in which the players were swapping chips nearly almost every hand it has finally come to an end. Fritz Barnes moves all covering Ron Lemmerman who has 4,500,000. Lemmerman makes the call and has Fritz dominated with his {ah}{7s}. Barnes holds the {kc}{7h} and will need some help to eliminate Lemmerman.

Both players flop a seven on the {7c}{9s}{2d} flop and Barnes will need a king and only a king to eliminate Lemmerman. The {kd} hits the turn and the crowd roars, it is now Barnes who is in command of the hand.

The {3h} completes the board and Lemmerman is eliminated in dramatic fashion. Lemmerman will be our runner up and collect $13,372 for his efforts.

Gus Pasquella (Riverchasers)

Gus Pasquella (Riverchasers)

Gus Pasquella limps from the small blind and Ron Lemmerman checks his option in the big blind. They see a flop of {kd}{9s}{8s} and Pasuqella checks. Lemmerman bets 1,000,000 and Pasquella check raises to 2,200,000. Lemmerman thinks it over for a bit and moves all in, covering Pasquella who has 2,800,000.

This makes Gus think it over for a bit, with his tournament life on the line. Eventually Pasquella makes the call and shows his {5c}{8c} for a pair of eights. Lemmerman shows {qc}{8h} and his queen kicker will play. The turn brings the {ks} and the {qd} completes the board giving Lemmerman the winning hand. Pasquella will be our 3rd place finisher collecting $8,172 for his efforts.
