No End in Sight?

With the chip counts evening out once again, there's no way of knowing whether or not this tournament will end tonight - at least we can say that the next break isn't too far away!

Earlier, Eddie Blumenthal raised to 155,000 from the button and Geffrey Klein called before check-folding to Blumenthal's bet of 140,000 after the flop of {A-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}. Two hands later, another limped pot saw them go into a flop of {A-Clubs}{2-Spades}{2-Diamonds}; Blumenthal checked to Klein who opened for 75,000, only to fold after Blumenthal check-raised to 180,000.

Klein was able to recuperate those chips though moments later. Blumenthal raised from the button to 155,000 and Klein called before he led out for 75,000 after the flop of {9-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{4-Hearts}. Blumenthal raised to 210,000, but folded after Klein came back with a reraise worth 450,000.

Two More Boards

• Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

The chips keep swinging back and forth between Eddie Blumenthal and Geffrey Klein, but when you've got a bracelet on the line, you'd expect long, arduous battles like this. At least we've been able to catch two more full hands for you.

Earlier, Klein completed from the small blind and Blumenthal checked his option from the big blind to go heads-up to a flop of {K-Hearts}{8-Spades}{2-Spades}, which both players checked. Blumenthal then check-called Klein's bets of 75,000 on the turn of the {2-Hearts} and of 150,000 on the river {A-Spades} before showing down {9-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}, which was good enough to take the pot down.

A few minutes later, Blumenthal completed from the small blind and Klein checked his option from the big blind before check-calling Blumenthal's bet of 75,000 on the flop of {Q-Spades}{J-Spades}{5-Hearts}. Both players then checked the {Q-Hearts} on turn before Klein check-called Blumenthal's bet of 100,000 on the river of the {7-Clubs}.

Klein showed {J-Diamonds}{6-Spades} for two pair and the win. Grinders gonna grind.

Chalk Up Another for "Doc"

Geffrey "Doc" Klein completed from the small blind and Eddie Blumenthal checked his option from the big blind to see a flop of {J-Spades}{5-Clubs}{7-Spades}; Blumenthal check-called Klein's bet of 75,000 after the flop and did the same on the turn after Klein's bet of 150,000 on the turn of the {3-Hearts} before both players elected to check down the river {K-Spades}.

Klein tabled {J-Clubs}{2-Spades} and Blumenthal mucked his hand.

Klein's Trifecta

• Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Not to be outdone by Eddie Blumenthal, Geffrey Klein has proved that he can win three pots in a row too!

Klein completed from the button and Blumenthal checked from the big blind before both players checked the flop of {K-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}. Blumenthal then check-folded to Klein after his bet of 75,000 on the turn of the {K-Spades}.

In the very next hand, Blumenthal raised to 155,000 and Klein called before opening for 100,000 after the flop of {Q-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}. Blumenthal folded and straight after that, he checked his option in the big blind after Klein completed from the button to see another flop that read {8-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{2-Hearts}.

Blumenthal checked, Klein bet 75,000 and Blumenthal sent his hand into the muck.

Back to the Grind

• Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Despite all his hard luck, Eddie Blumenthal has composed himself and is back to work chipping away at Geffrey Klein's stack as this heads-up battle continues.

Klein completed from the button and Blumenthal checked from the big blind before check-calling Klein's bet of 100,000 after the flop of {K-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}. Both players then checked the turn of the {5-Clubs} before Blumenthal led out for 150,000 on the river of the {9-Spades}. Klein was having none of it and kicked his hand into the muck.

In the next hand, Blumenthal raised to 155,000 from the button and Klein called, only to check-fold after Blumenthal led out for 160,000 after the flop of {7-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}. The button switched back to Klein and this time he elected to complete from the button, only to see Blumenthal raise to 160,000 from the big blind.

Klein called, but then folded after Blumenthal fired out 155,000 on the flop of {K-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{4-Clubs}. Looks like we're burning the midnight oil tonight!

Klein Snatches Back the Lead!

Eddie Blumenthal just can't seem to catch a break, because despite all that hard work, Geffrey Klein has managed to double up again to take back the chip lead!

Klein raised to 170,000 from the button, but Blumenthal reraised to 500,000 straight from the big blind. Klein came back with a four-bet of 1.1 million, Blumenthal shoved and Klein snap-called.

Blumenthal: {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}
Klein: {A-Spades}{7-Hearts}

"Queen one time!" yelled a railbird from the rail. No dice - instead, Klein hit his pair on the flop of {K-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}. The turn of the {4-Diamonds} changed nothing and the repeat {K-Spades} on the river improved Klein to two pair. Blumenthal stormed away from the table, cursing under his breath and shaking his head, perhaps wondering why in H-E-double-hockey-sticks are the poker gods are being so unkind right now.
