NLHE $50,000 GTD Event 3 Day 1a 32/61
Jacco Vanlimpt and Peter Lawson are no longer in the tournament while the field has been reduced to the last four tables for Day 1a. The seat of Lawson is now occupied by Frederic Maniez, who was involved in a three-way hand with Stephane Marsal.
Layne Flack raised to 925 and Maniez called in the cutoff. Marsal shoved the button for 4,175 and Flack as well as Maniez called. On the Qh 8h 2c flop, the action of the two remaining active players went check, check. On the 9h turn, Flack check-called a bet of 3,000 and the 7c on the river was checked through again.
Flack showed Ah 10d, Maniez the Ac 9d and Marsal tripled his short stack with 7h 7s for a set.
Flack (45,000) and Maniez (40,000) are among the bigger stacks.
