Melanie Weisner has let her chips do the talking, fending off Ervin Tormos' advances in a recent hand.
We picked up the action between Tormos and Weider on a flop that read , which they both checked before Tormos casually threw out 3,500 on the turn of the .
"I'm only betting because he's writing stuff down," Tormos said, nodding in our field reporter's direction before turning his attention back to Weisner. "So, what's your name?"
"Melanie," was the abrupt reply.
"I'm Ervin," Tormos continued, before launching into his life story. Weisner clearly wasn't interested - she called his bet before the dealer produced the on the river.
"I check," Tormos said. "All in," Weisner shot back. Tormos' cheesy grin suddenly faded and his face went white.
"All in?" Tormos meekly replied as he checked his cards. Clearly they weren't that great, and he quickly folded. Weisner is back up to 34,500, while Tormos is steady at around 92,000. Stick to making moves with your chips, buddy.
We came in on the river of this hand between John Kim and Pokerstars Team Pro Jose Nacho Barbero. There was at least 50,000 in the pot before the river.
The board read and Kim checked in the big blind. Nacho bet 15,000 from the button and after about 3 minutes of tanking Kim re-raised to 54,00 on the very dangerous board. Nacho didn't take too long and certainly wasn't convinced Kim had much because he made the call flipping over for the low end of the straight. His read and call were right though as Kim showed for one pair.
Barbero is now in our top ten with 209,000 and Kim has fallen down to 65,000
Action folded to Orson Young in the small blind who raised to 5,100. Mark Bryan then shoved all in from the big blind but did not seem pleased when Young immediately called. His disappointment was understandable after the cards were turned up.
The flop put Bryan into the lead when it came but the on the turn flipped the tables yet again. The river brought an inconsequential and Bryan was sent to the rail.
All we saw was a board of and Alexandre Luneau all in. Anthony Spinella reluctantly called the 35,000 more and Luneau showed for trip two's. Spinella was visibly upset as he violently threw his hand into the muck.
He was hovering around the 300,00 mark before the hand, but is now down to around 225,000. Luneau after the double up has around 120,000
