Another Pot for Ebanks

YorkshirePud • Nivel 8: 200-400, 50 ante

Joe Ebanks has sailed through the 30,000 chip barrier and it cruising in this tournament.

Facing an 850 bet from under the gun, Ebanks three-bet to 2,200 from his seat on the button. The player in the big blind tanked for almost one minute before releasing his hand. The initial raiser called and it was heads up to the {8-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{4-Spades} flop.

Ebanks made a continuation bet of 1,625 when it was checked to him but he checked behind on the {J-Spades} turn. The river brought the {A-Hearts} into play and Ebanks asked to see how many chips his opponent had behind. With that information processed, Ebanks bet 2,500 and his opponent snap-folded.

Brenes Put To The Test

[user250068] • Nivel 8: 200-400, 50 ante

The flop of {9-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} was already dealt and the big blind check called a bet of 1,450 from Humberto Brenes from under the gun. The big blind again check called, this time on the {3-Clubs} turn for the amount of 2,475. The {9-Diamonds} river prompted the big blind to lead for 10,000. After some thought and quite some time, Brenes opted for the fold.

Bonomo And Cunningham Tangle Again

[user250068] • Nivel 7: 150-300, 25 ante

Allen Cunningham opened for 900 from early position and Justin Bonomo was his only caller from the small blind. Bonomo checked called Cunningham's continuation bet of 1,100 on the {4-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{q-Clubs} flop. Both players checked the {3-Hearts} turn and the {8-Spades}river. When the cards were tabled, Bonomo won with {10-}{9-} for a pair of tens and Cunningham had {k-}{j-} for king high.

Ivey Flops the Nuts

YorkshirePud • Nivel 7: 150-300, 25 ante

A short-stacked player moved all in from the button after Phil Ivey had opened from under the gun. Ivey called and tabled {A-Spades}{K-Spades} which improved to a boat on the {A-}{K-}{A-} flop!

Ivey is now up to 18,500 and looks to be running good. That is not good news for anyone who faces the nine-time WSOP bracelet winner today.

Kamel Ruling in the Desert

YorkshirePud • Nivel 7: 150-300, 25 ante

British pro Tamer Kamel looks to be our chip leader thanks to his mountain of chips worth 45,000. We've not managed to catch Kamal in a hand so far today but we will keep trying.

Kamel only has one WSOP cash to his name; he finished 120th in a $1,500 No Limit Hold'em Six-Handed tournament at the 2012 WSOP, but if he continues in this rich vein of form he should add a second cash by the time this tournament ends. Kamel's largest career cash tops the scales at an impressive £79,950 ($120,311), which was his reward for finishing seventh in the recent EPT London Main Event.
