Tournament swings are brutal, especially at these high blinds and antes and Mickey Woll just found that out the hard way as he went from being one of the bigger stacks at this BPPS 500 Final Table to out in a matter of two hands, with Vinny Masino doubling up through the big stacked player and then finishing the job he stared to send Woll to the rail in 6th place.
The action in the first hand was picked up pre-flop with Masino opening to 110,000 in late position, with Woll defending his big blind to see a flop.
Woll would then check, allowing Masino to continue for a half pot sized bet.
That seemed to be exactly what Woll wanted as he would check raise to just under 400,000, then snap calling when Masino moved all-in tabling for a flopped two pair.
Masino would be behind, but with two draws holding and with two cards to come was not in terrible shape.
The turn would brick out with the but the river was anything but a brick as the spiked to give Masino his gut shot straight and crippled the former chip leader.
Masino would step away from the table and say, “Now my hearts racing.” before sitting back down to stack up close to 3,000,000 in chips.
On one of the very next hands, Woll, who was crippled to just a handful of big blinds would be officially eliminated by Masino with Woll’s unable to improve against Masino’s .
Woll will make just over $8,500 for his BPPS 500 Final Table run as we are now suddenly five handed, confirming what Vinny Pahuja said about this level as there has been nothing but action over the last half hour.
Players are now five minutes from their next break, during which we will update the remaining chip counts.
