Joseph Bolnick
Joseph Bolnick

Charles Cohen raised from to 150,000 from the button and Richard Harwood re-raised to 450,000 from the small. Joseph Bolnick then went all-in from the big and Cohen snap-folded. Harwood called.

Harwood: {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}
Bolnick: {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}

The board came {4-Spades}{6-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{2-Hearts}...{9-Hearts}, giving Bolnick the rivered flush.

Harwood is down to just 450,000 after the crippling blow, while Bolnick is up to 3,100,000.

Preflop Raises Earning Extreme Value

Nivel 27 : 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

With our antes now at 5,000 per player, the small blind at 25,000 and the big blind paying 50,000, there is 120,000 in dead money up for grabs during each hand.

A simple preflop raise of 150,000, or three times the big blind, has been enough to drag the dead money on most of the hands dealt during this level. This means that any of our remaining seniors brave enough to expand their ranges and begin stealing can earn a near even return on a basic 3X raise.

James Jewell Keeps On Jammin'

James Jewell Has Made Jamming the Pot His Trademark Move

Current chip leader Craig Koch opened for 150,000 and James Hess made the call holding the button. James Jewell also came along from the big blind and we went to the flop three-handed.

Flop: {7-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{8-Hearts}

Jewell tapped the table for a check and Koch slid bet of 250,000 toward the pot. Hess quickly mucked his hand but Jewell slowly pushed his last 800,000 forward for an all-in. Koch appeared discouraged by this development and peeked back at his hole cards once or twice before tossing them to the dealer.

Hess Catches Koch

Nivel 27 : 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Craig Koch raised to 125,000 from the button and James Hess called from the small.

Both players checked down the {J-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} and {3-Clubs} turn. However, Koch fired a 100,000 bet when Hess checked the {J-Spades} on the river and Hess tank-called.

Hess: {A-}{10-} for ace-high
Koch: {6-}{7-} for seven-high

Hess snapped off the bluff dragged the pot thanks to his good read.

Cohen Lets Hess Play Catch Up

James Hess raised to 120,000 from the hijack and picked up Charles Cohen, who called from the small blind. The flop came {Q-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} and Cohen checked to Hess, who fired a bet of 155,000 into the middle. Cohen made the call and we were off to the turn.

Turn: {4-Clubs}

Both players checked the turn and the river card came {K-Spades}.

This time Cohen led out for a bet of 200,000 and Hess snap-called with his {K-Diamonds}{J-Clubs} for a rivered pair of kings. Cohen tabled his {J-Diamonds}{J-Spades} and told Hess "good hand sir, that's my fault" after letting Hess find his three-outer on the river.
