Peaches & Cream

Nivel 12

There are 112 players left as we've ticked down under 25% of our starting field still alive. It's getting cozy in here with just 14 tables in play.

Chainsaw Doubles

Nivel 12


Allen Kessler raised with the {K-Clubs} in the window, and he and Ylon Schwartz raised back and forth until Kessler was all in for 4,400. "I'm way ahead," Kessler said. "We know you're ahead, Chainsaw," someone at the table quipped. Kessler had started with split kings, and Schwartz rolled over {Q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}.

Schwartz board ran {Q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}, and those jacks were no good. Kessler's bare kings held as his cards came {8-Clubs}{K-Spades}{K-Clubs}{3-Spades}{6-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}, securing his double and moving his stack up to 11,200.

Monnette Busts One

No-Limit Hold'em

A short-stacked player moved all in for about 8,000 and found action from John Monnette in the small blind. Andrew Brown tanked a while in the big blind before folding {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} face up. Monnette tabled {A-Spades}{A-Clubs} and had his opponent's {K-Diamonds}{J-Spades} in bad shape. The board ran out {Q-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{5-Spades}, securing the pot for Monnette.

Buchman Scoops

Stud 8/b

Opponent: ({x-}{x-}) / {a-Clubs}{9-Spades}{2-Hearts}{a-Hearts} / ({x-})
Eric Buchman: ({x-}{x-}) / {4-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{4-Clubs} / ({x-})
Vladimir Kochelaevskiy: ({x-}{x-}) / {7-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{q-Spades} / ({x-})

We caught up with the action on fifth street, where it was checked to Buchman who bet. Both his opponents called, and on sixth, the gentleman with a pair of aces showing led. Buchman and Kochelaevskiy called.

On seventh the same action occured, and the player with aces showing opened {q-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} for just the pair of aces with no low. Buchman opened {10-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{x-} for tens and sixes with no low, and Kochelaevskiy mucked.

Buchman scooped, adding to his already above average stack.

Juanda Staying Put For Now

Nivel 11

A player in middle position opened to 1,700, and John Juanda reraised the pot to 6,250. His opponent called, and the two men took a {10-Hearts} {9-Diamonds} {6-Clubs} flop. When it checked to Juanda, he sat still for just a moment.

"Well, I don't think I have a choice," he said quietly, grabbing his last 11,050 chips and sliding them forward. His opponent tanked and folded, and Juanda is trying to make a little comeback today. He's up to 24,300 now, and he's apparently decided to get comfortable and forget about registering for the 5:00 P.M. tourney for now.

Parlare Su Twitter

Nivel 11

Earlier today, Italian Michele Limongi tweeted, "Domani per me un tavolino facile facile: Allen Kessler(VIN 3.000.000), Frank Kassela 2 bracc. e 3 milioni Fabrice Soulier anke lui non da meno."

Translation: Tomorrow I have a table of dummies: Allen Kessler, Frank Kasella (2 bracelets), and Fabrice Soulier .

Sarcasm is very hard to detect through text however, especially in a different language, so when Kessler found this tweet, he was very confused.

"Facile means easy," he said to Limongi.

"I was complimenting the players," Limongi responded in his thick Italian accent. "It is a saying. How did you find it anyway?"

"I searched my name," Kessler answered.

Limongi shrugged, "I hardly Tweet, and you can't say anything bad about players because they'll know, yeah?"

Tablemate Ylon Schwartz chuckled at the Italian's naivety.

"This is the table of death," Limongi added.

Limongi is right. Kassela busted earlier, but his seat was replaced by the aforementioned Schwartz, and they've since been joined by Vladimir Shchemelev and one of the chip leaders entering the day; Lamar Wilkinson.

Buona fortuna a tutti al tavolino.

Buchman Can Beat Trips

Nivel 11


Jerrod Ankenman completed with a five showing, and Eric Buchman either called or raised with a three in the door. We walked up heading to fourth street a the two men were heads-up.

Ankenman: (x-x) / {5-}{6-}{5-}{5-} / (x)
Buchman: (x-x) / {3-}{8-}{q-}{3-} / (x)

Anekenman check-called on fourth street (which leads us to believe Buchman three-bet earlier), and Buchman led out with bets on fifth, sixth, and seventh. When Ankenman called the last bet, Buchman announced his nine, showing {9x6x2x} for the ninety-eight. It was good, and it pushes Buchman up to 47,000.
