Young Gutted

Pot Limit Omaha

Justin Young was all in and at risk against John Monnette with the board reading {3-Spades}{q-Clubs}{2-Hearts}. Young's {a-Hearts}{q-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} was ahead of Monnette's {a-Spades}{8-Spades}{6-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}, but the {5-Spades} spiked on the turn to give Monnette an unbeatable straight.

Young was already gone by the time the {3-Diamonds} fell on the river, and Monnette dragged the pot in.

Clubs Always Get There

Nivel 10

Pot-Limit Omaha

Earlier in the day, we heard John Juanda lamenting the relationship between his middling chip stack and the registration period for today's 5:00 P.M. event. "That's a lot of time to go broke," he said, looking at his watch. Juanda just had his chance to duck out with dignity.

He opened the last pot to 1,200, and Katie Baxter three-bet to 3,200. Juanda shoved in for just less than 11,000 total, and Baxter made the call for most of her own chips, too.

Juanda: {A-Hearts} {A-Spades} {10-Diamonds} {3-Diamonds}
Baxter: {A-Diamonds} {A-Clubs} {K-Diamonds} {J-Diamonds}

The board ran out {J-Spades} {3-Clubs} {Q-Clubs} {6-Clubs} {4-Diamonds}, and everyone stared at the board for a moment. "Chop," Baxter finally surmised, and that wasn't the result either of them were looking for.

"That's boring," Juanda said. "I don't want to chop." He's still got those 11,000 chips, and Baxter her 13,000 or so.

"How do I not have clubs?" Baxter wondered aloud.

Buchman Doubles Opponent

No Limit Hold'em

Eric Buchman had an opponent all in with board reading {a-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}. Buchman's opponent was ahead with {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}, but Buchman was drawing to a flush with {q-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}. The turn ({5-Hearts}) and river ({q-Clubs}) both bricked though, and Buchman's opponent shipped the double.

Appleman Pours One Out

Nivel 10

We just heard about an odd occurrence with Mickey Appleman. Apparently, Appleman lost a pot in Stud, turned around in his chair, and poured a bottle of water out on the floor. It splashed on the legs of Brent Hanks next door, and Hanks was none too thrilled. One of our staff heard his reaction:

"Um, I know you don't like the water," Hanks said. "But next time you do that, could you not splash it on me?"

There is a confirmed wet spot on the floor near Table 354.

Woo Chopped by Deeb and Zaichenko

Nivel 9

Stud 8/b

Lou Hensley: ({x-}{x-}) / {k-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} FOLDED
Shaun Deeb: ({x-}{x-}) / {3-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{7-Spades}{10-Spades} / ({x-})
David Woo: ({x-}{x-}) / {2-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{9-Clubs} / ({x-})
Andrey Zaichenko: ({x-}{x-}) / {k-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{8-Spades}{7-Diamonds} / ({x-})

We caught up with the action on fourth street, where it checked to Deeb who tossed out a bet. His three opponents called. The same action occurred on fifth street, except Hensley bowed out. Woo and Zaichenko called one more bet on sixth, all three players checked on seventh, and the hands were opened.

Deeb: {k-Spades}{2-Clubs}{8-Hearts} - Low
Zaichenko: {k-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} - High
Woo: Mucked - Nada

Leah Razzed

Nivel 9


We watched Mike Leah get crippled in a Razz hand where he made two pair on seventh to double up a short-stacked opponent. It left him with just 175 chips, but he quintupled up on the following hand, back into contention. He worked it up to 1,300 the last time we walked past.

He's out of contention again. With a deuce showing, Leah completed, and Jimmy Fricke raised with a {6-} up. Jonathan Green called with a deuce, and Leah reraised all in for 1,300. Fricke and Green called with live action between them.

Leah: (x-x) / {2-}{6-}{k-}{10-} / (x)
Fricke: (x-x) / {6-}{q-}{7-}{4-} / (x)
Green: (x-x) / {2-}{4-}{8-}{4-} / (MUCK)

Green bet fourth and fifth streets with Fricke calling along, and Fricke took the lead with a bet of his own on sixth. Green folded, and Leah got to see what he was up against. The news wasn't good as Fricke tabled {2x5x} for the made seventy-six. Leah's {AxJx} was drawing dead, and he's been eliminated here near the end of the first level.

Fricke is up to 37,000 as he stacks those chips.

Richey Peaces Out

Nivel 9


Brett Richey got his last bet in on fourth street with {7-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} showing. Fabrice Soulier put him at risk, and the hands went like this:

Richey: [{3-Clubs}{2-Clubs}) / {7-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} / {x-}
Soulier: ({8-Spades}{6-Spades}) / {a-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{7-Spades} / {4-Diamonds}

Richey was drawing dead on sixth street, and opted to leave rather than sweat his last card. Soulier was shipped the pot, and is now about 25,000 chips.

Potter Leaves on Seventh

Nivel 9


Matthew Ashton brought it in with the {3-Clubs} up, and Jason Potter completed with the {K-Hearts}. A player in the middle called (he'd fold on fifth street), and Ashton called to proceed.

Ashton: (x-x) / {3-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} / (x)
Potter: (x-x) / {K-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{a-Hearts} / (x)

The eventual folder bet fourth street with {A-Diamonds} {Q-Hearts} showing, and Ashton and Potter called in turn. On fifth street, Ashton was the first bettor, and his bet was promptly raised by Potter, forcing the third player out of the hand. Ashton reraised, though, and Potter called. Potter called another bet on sixth street, and Ashton fired right back out on seventh.

Potter went into the tank for a long while, shaking his head and furrowing his brow as he contemplated. After several more shakes of the head and forlorn glares down at the cards, Potter tucked them under and folded.

He's down to about 18,000 now.

Kassela and Kessler Chop Opponent

Nivel 9

Omaha 8/b

Frank Kassela made it two bets from under the gun, Brandon Sharckharris called in the cutoff, and Allen Kessler called out of the small blind. The flop came down {5-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}, and Kessler led out. Both of his opponents called, and the turn brought the {j-Clubs}. Kessler led again, Kassela raised, and both Sharckharris and Kessler called.

All three players checked the {a-Hearts} on the river.

Kessler: {3-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{5-Spades} - High
Kassela: {a-Spades}{10-Clubs}{8-Spades}{4-Clubs} - Low
Sharckharris: Muck - Nothing
