Total Entries: 107
Players Remaining: 4
Average Stack: 535,000
After the flurry of eliminations in Level 23, Level 24 was quite tame.
Near the end of the 30-minutes, a big three-way Stud/8 hand developed between Wink Winkelvoss, Jeff ‘Taxman’ Moses, and Mike Gabarick.
The TaxMan was applying pressure the whole way with an open pair of Aces, but the other two held on until the river. It was checked to Wink who bet (80,000) which the TaxMan called. Mike folded.
“Flush” said Wink. He three diamonds up and two in the hole to beat the TaxMan’s Aces and scoop the pot. That took his stack north of 1 million chips. The TaxMan was left short with about 90,000.
On the last hand of the level, Jeff ‘TaxMan’ Moses got some back. He got all-in on 5th street and called by Mike Gabarick. Mike whiffed and Jeff scooped to end the level.
