Last Hand Elimination
From middle position, Marius Hogtun min-raises to $20,000 and William Thorsson apprehensively calls from the big blind. The flop comes 1066, Thorsson checks, Hogtun bets $40,000, and Thorsson calls. The turn is the 10, Thorsson checks, Hogtun goes all-in for his remaining $100,000 and Thorsson instantly calls with KQ. Hogtun shows AK and the river is the 3, giving Thorsson a flush and eliminating Hogtun in 136th place. Sun Aug 06 01:12:00 PDT 2006

Thorsson Vs. Del Grosso
From the cut-off, William Thorsson raises to $35,000 and Marcello Del Grosso calls from the button. The flop comes 1065, Thorsson leads out with $40,000 and Del Grosso calls. The turn is the 2 and Thorsson pumps out $100,000. Del Grosso thinks and folds pocket 9's, face-up. Currently, Thorsson has $1,440,000.


So either cardplayer.com missed a million dollar plus loss in a pot or got the chip count wrong by over a million dollars. Does anyone know which it is?

Lesson being - ignore cardplayer, they basically pluck figures out of the air.
