We caught the hand starting on fourth street, where Kelly bet and his opponent called. Kelly's bets were also called on fifth and sixth, both players checked on seventh, and Kelly opened {7-Clubs}{4-Spades}{8-Hearts} for a ten-eight low. It was good, and Kelly was awarded the pot.

Kornuth's New Groove

Limit Hold'em

Adam Kornuth has been jamming out on his Bose Headphones all day on Table 373, and for good reason; he is our chip leader as we near the money bubble.

Kornuth took down another pot recently to extend his lead. The board read {8-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{9-Clubs} when we reached the table, he and an opponent checked, and the turn brought the {7-Hearts}. Kornuth called a bet from his opponent, and the river was the {k-Diamonds}.

Kornuth's opponent check-called a bet, Kornuth opened {7-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} for a set of sevens, and he shipped the pot.

Hellmuth Out, Still Betting

Nivel 13

We've been listening to a conversation between Shaun Deeb and Phil Hellmuth for a long while now. It was partly because we were waiting for Hellmuth to make a move with his short stack. But we were enjoying the banter, besides.

The two were trying to negotiate a fair price to bet on Hellmuth to win this thing. He had about 9,000 chips when the conversation began, and Deeb offered to lay 110:1 odds.

"One-ten?!" Hellmuth was indignant. The two offered their arguments for each side of the bet, and Hellmuth tried to move the line. He considered for a moment, then suggested, "I'll do it for one-forty."

Deeb just laughed. "I don't set lines to negotiate. I set the line, and then that's the line if you want it."

"Come on," Hellmuth was working it out. "You gotta go a little higher, kid."

"All right," Deeb conceded quickly. "One-twelve." The table chuckled.

No-Limit Hold'em

As the two were talking, they mixed it up in a decisive pot. Hellmuth opened to 2,200 from late position, and Deeb three-bet to 5,500 on the button. The rest of Hellmuth's short stack went in, and his {10-Clubs} {J-Clubs} was trailing Deeb's {A-Spades} {K-Spades}.

The board ran {3-Clubs} {2-Spades} {7-Spades} {6-Hearts} {7-Diamonds}, and Hellmuth saved himself a little money by delaying that bet. He's out, and Deeb climbs to about 75,000 with that knockout. Deeb offered to carry the bet forward to the next event, and Hellmuth said he was on the way over to play the $1,500 Stud event next door. Deeb laid him 112:1 on winning, and Hellmuth promptly pulled $500 out and shipped it to Deeb.

How do we get people to throw money at us like that?

Boeken Busts Elezra


A short-stacked Eli Elezra was all in against Noah Boeken and another opponent before fifth street.

Elezra: {X-}{X-}/{5-Hearts}{K-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{3-Spades}/{X-}
Boeken: {X-}{X-}/{7-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{K-Spades}{J-Diamonds}/{X-}
Opponent: {X-}{X-}/{J-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{8-Hearts}/{X-}

Boeken bet fifth, sixth, and seventh street, receiving calls from the other player in the hand each time. Before the opponent called, though, Elezra turned his up cards face down and said his goodbyes to the tables. The third player in the hand called, but mucked when Boeken tabled {A-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} for jacks up to win the pot.

Expert Short-Stack Play

No Limit Hold'em

Phil Hellmuth opened to 2,100 from middle position, Shaun Deeb three-bet to 5,300 near the button.

"Wow, against Shaun Deeb," Hellmuth gushed. "This feels like a call."

He indeed called, leaving about 9,000 behind.

"Expert short-stack play," Deeb told our reporter. "Quote from Shaun Deeb."

The flop came down {2-Hearts}{5-Spades}{8-Clubs}, Hellmuth checked, Deeb continued and Hellmuth immediately open-folded {k-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}.

"That might've been good too," Hellmuth professed.

"You were crushed," Deeb countered, showing {a-Clubs}{10-Spades}.

Geyer Gets Some

Stud 8/b

Adam Geyer: ({x-}{x-}) / ({5-Spades}{j-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{9-Hearts} / ({x-})
Shaun Deeb: ({x-}{x-}) / {q-Spades}{6-Clubs}{j-Spades}{2-Clubs} / ({x-})

Geyer completed, Deeb raised, and Geyer made the call. Geyer called a bet from Deeb on fourth street, and after making an open pair of jacks check-called a bet on fifth. Both players checked sixth and seventh.

"Queens," Deeb announced.

"Jacks-up," Geyer responded, opening {4-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}. Deeb mucked, and Geyer shipped the pot.

Kochelaevskiy Wheels a Scoop

Omaha 8/b

When we reached their table, Vladimir Kochelaevskiy and Eric Buchman were heads up with the board reading {5-Spades}{9-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}. Buchman led out, Kochelaevskiy raised, and Buchman called.

The river was the {6-Hearts}, and Buchman slowed down, check-calling a bet from Kochelaevskiy. The Russian opened {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{4-Spades} for a wheel, which was good enough for the high and the low, and he scooped the pot.
