Event #52: $2,500 Mixed Hold'em (Limit/No-Limit)

Sugarbear Busto

• Nivel 6

No Limit Hold'em

On a board that read {5-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{8-Spades}{J-Spades}, Al "Sugarbear" Barbieri moved his last 4,000 in after the tun with {Q-Clubs}{J-Diamonds} for a pair, but was called off by Scott Montgomery who had him outkicked with his {A-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}. Even though he still had a glimmer of hope with a nine to the straight or another queen to improve to two pair, the river was a blank and Barbieri is no more.

Montgomery is now up to 17,600 in chips.

Kabrhel Bests Durrrr

No Limit Hold'em

Tom Dwan raised to 800 preflop and was called by Martin Kabrhel in position. The flop came {6-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{9-Spades} and both players checked. The {3-Spades} turned and Dwan checked once again. Kabrhel bet out 1,475 and Dwan made the call.

The {J-Diamonds} hit the river and Dwan checked once more. This time Kabrhel fired out 3,675 and after some pondering, Dwan pushed out a call. Kabrhel tabled {K-Clubs}{J-Clubs} for a rivered pair of jacks. It was good, as Dwan sent his cards sailing into the muck.

Negreanu Doubles Up

• Nivel 6

No Limit Hold'em

The action folded around to a player in middle position who raised before Daniel Negreanu shipped his last 3,100 into the middle. The middle position called, showing down {K-Spades}{J-Spades} but was smashed by Negreanu's {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts} after he improved to trips on the board of {A-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}.

Negreanu is now back up to 7,000 and has some work to do.

Taguri: Daniel Negreanu

Matros Doubles

No Limit Hold'em

We caught up to see the aftermath of a hand where Matt Matros was able to double up. The board read {A-Hearts}{2-Spades}{A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} and Matros' had a winning {J-Spades}{9-Spades} sitting in front of him. His opponent called the all in with {5-Spades}{4-Spades} and neither of them got there with the spades, allowing Matros' jack-high to take it.

Hellmuth Strikes Out

Limit Hold'em

We got to Phil Hellmuth's table just in time to see Phil Hellmuth and another player all-in against Mike Layton on the board reading {Q-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{8-Clubs} before the cards were tabled:

Layton: {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}
Hellmuth: {10-}{10-}
Opponent: {K-}{9-}

The river was a useless {4-Diamonds} and Layton scored the double-KO along with more than 16,000 in chips. Probably no point in mentioning that Hellmuth was upset about his elimination, but such is the nature of the "Poker Brat" beast.

Kabrhel's Ace Is Superior

Limit Hold'em

After getting roughly 3,000 in the pot preflop, Martin Kabrhel and two other players saw a flop. A player from middle position moved all in for 200 more and was called by another player in late position. Martin Kabrhel raised and the late position caller folded. The hands were turned up to see Kabrehl was ahead:

Kabrhel: {A-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}
Opponent: {A-Hearts}{J-Hearts}

The turn and river came {9-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds} and Kabrhel's ace-king held, allowing him to scoop the pot and send one player home.
