Aces vs. Kings vs. Ace-King

Nivel 12

Limit Hold'em

Richard Sklar leaned back in his chair to tell our reporter about a hand that just went down on his table. The hand history wasn't overly detailed, but Sklar was able to get most of the key points across. The main thing was that three big hands clashed in a round of limit hold'em.

The three players were Sklar, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, and Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi. Sklar had ace-king, Grospellier had pocket kings, and Mizrachi held pocket aces. The action was capped preflop, and then there was lots of betting on the flop, turn, and river. Mizrachi's aces held up, and he was able to scoop a large pot and moved up to 122,000 in chips.

"That's how lucky this guy is!" exclaimed Sklar after telling the story of the hand, pointing to Mizrachi with a smile. "That's how lucky he is to get aces in that spot!"

"Yeah, but I wish it was no-limit hold'em!" yelled back Mizrachi.

Sklar was knocked back a little to 78,000, and Grospellier dropped to 38,000. Below are the rest of the counts from the table.

Duhamel Doubles Through Buchman

Nivel 11

Stud 8

David "ODB" Baker was the bring in and Jonathan Duhamel completed. Action folded over to Eric Buchman and he made it two bets to go. Phil Hellmuth, with the {A-Clubs} showing, went into the tank. About 30 seconds passed before Hellmuth picked up his cards and tossed them into the muck. It came back around to the short-stacked Duhamel who three-bet the action. Buchman called.

Duhmael paired his fives on fourth and shot out another bet. Buchman called and Duhmael moved all in for less than another big bet on fifth. Buchman called it, the hands were tabled, and the remaining streets were dealt.

Duhamel: {Q-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} / {5-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{8-Clubs}{10-Hearts} / {9-Diamonds}
Buchman: {J-Hearts}{J-Diamonds} / {7-Spades}{2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} / {x-}

Buchman took a quick look at his seventh-street card and then mucked his hand, allowing Duhamel to scoop with pot with his trip fives. The 2010 WSOP Main Event champion is now sitting around 16,000 in chips.

Baker Gets Hellmuth Going

Nivel 11

Phil Hellmuth last night on Day 1


David "ODB" Baker completed on third street and Phil Hellmuth put in a raise after which Baker made the call. On fourth street Baker called a bet from Hellmuth and the same thing repeated itself on fifth. Sixth street turned the tables and Baker checked to Hellmuth who bet again. Baker called and checked on seventh street.

Without looking at his seventh card Hellmuth bet and Baker quickly responded with a check-raise. Now Hellmuth grabbed his final card and peeked at it before putting in the call.

Hellmuth: (X-X) / {Q-Spades}{6-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{2-Spades} / (X)
Baker: (X-X) / {5-Spades}{8-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{K-Spades} / (X)

"Straight to the eight," Baker said as he turned over {4-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}.

Hellmuth mucked his cards and Baker said, "There's nothing I can do about that one, Phil."

"Nice hand buddy," Hellmuth responded sounding like he always does after losing a pot.

"What I could've done was fill up," Hellmuth then added, as most of the players started laughing.

Hellmuth lost a little at the start of today but he's still sitting on a good stack. Meanwhile Baker's started an upwards trend he very much needed after starting the day with very little chips.
