Bach Looking to Go Wire to Wire

David Bach has been chipleader after each of the first two days.
David Bach has been chipleader after each of the first two days.

Welcome to Day 3 of Event #33: $2,500 Seven-Card Razz. Fourteen players remain out of a starting field of 301, and the biggest name by far left among them also has the most chips: David "Gunslinger" Bach bagged up just north of 300,000, putting him 41,000 clear of his nearest competitor, Ivan Schertzer. Bach, a native of Athens, Ga., is attempting to pull off the rarely seen feat of leading a tournament at every major checkpoint; he closed each of the first two days as the chip leader.

Bach appears well-positioned to add a second bracelet to his collection. His first came in the prestigious $50,000 World Championship H.O.R.S.E. event in 2009, at which he collected over $1.2 million.

First prize in this tournament isn't quite that big, checking in at $178,052, but all the players will surely be hungry to get their hands on it, as well as the World Series of Poker gold bracelet. Fellow top-five stacks Schertzer (262,000 chips), Rick Fuller (205,000), Joel Alpert (197,500) and Brent Keller (188,500) won't be letting Bach simply waltz away with the prizes and glory. Bracelet winners Randy Ohel (175,000) Frankie O'Dell (155,000) also loom as threats.

We'll be bringing you all the relevant updates right here at PokerNews, so be sure to tune in for exciting conclusion to this event and the crowning of a champion. Play begins at 2 p.m.

Fuller Continues to Slide

Nivel 19 : 6,000/12,000, 1,500 ante

Joel Alpert, Rick Fuller and Frankie O'Dell each saw fourth street for three bets. Alpert, who had reraised on the first round, kept the lead on fourth with a {2-}{6-} when both of his opponents caught paint. O'Dell then bowed out on fifth with more paint, leaving Alpert and Fuller heads up.

Alpert: {2-}{6-}{k-}
Fuller: {6-}{k-}{3-}

Alpert bet again, and Fuller called. Fuller took an ever-so-slight lead on the board with an {a-} on sixth against Alpert's {4-}. Fuller went ahead and bet, and Alpert called. Fuller then put Alpert all in with one more bet on seventh.

"I made a number two," Alpert said, sliding his chips in and tabling {3-}{a-}{x-}. Fuller could only shake his head and laugh at his misfortune.

Fuller's dropped below the average stack after starting the day with a top-five stack.

Dealer Error in the Middle of Another Fuller and Alpert Duel

Nivel 19 : 6,000/12,000, 1,500 ante
Rick Fuller

Alpert: {X-}{X-}/{2-}{q-}{a-}{5-}{2-}
Fuller: {6-}{k-}/{8-}{9-}{j-}{j-}{5-}

On third street Joel Alpert completed with his {2-} showing. One other player called with a {10-} before Rick Fuller made it two bets with his {8-}. Action folded back to Alpert who made it three bets and only Fuller called.

On fourth street Fuller bet and Alpert called. On fifth street action was the same. On sixth street it was Alpert who bet and Fuller who called.

It was on seventh street that the dealer made an extreme error. He dealt both players their card face up instead of face down. Alpert received his {2-} while Fuller was dealt a {5-}.

"What are you doing?" Frankie O'Dell said angrily, standing up from his chair. "This is supposed to be the World Series of Poker."

The floor was called over and the ruling was made that since both players had the same disadvantage, they would continue the hand as normal. Both players checked on the river.

Alpert announced that he had a queen low, while Fuller announced that he had a jack low, showing his {K-} and {6-} under. Alpert stared at his hand for a while and snapped at the dealer when he went to grab it.

"I'll muck my own hand," he said, clearly a little frustrated at the situation.

Either way, Fuller was awarded the pot and he collected it quietly.

"It's better to be careful than fast," Randy Ohel said to the dealer after the hand, which most of the table agreed with.
