Ebanks Shoves on Terry


Joe Ebanks knows a thing or two about six-max tournaments. He won the $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em - Six Handed Championship this summer at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas for $1,158,481. From under the gun, Ebanks raised to 700 before action folded around to Todd Terry on the button. Terry three-bet and made it 1,750 to go. The blinds folded and play fell back on Ebanks. He tanked for about two minutes and then moved all in for around 10,000 in chips. Terry quickly mucked and Ebanks scooped the pot.

Mikko Sundell Bites The Dust

We arrived at the table with the flop already splayed out on the felt and a lot of action between Mikko Sundell and Azusa Maeda. The flop was {J-Hearts} {5-Spades} {4-Spades} and Maeda had a bet of 6,350 in front of him from the small blind and Sundell had a bet of 2,750 in front of him from under the gun. Everyone was staring at Sundell to make his move and when he did it was for all of his chips. Back to Maeda and he made the call.

Big Three-Way Action Preflop Sends Kongsgaard Home

From middle position, Tyler Kenney raised to 725 to kick off the action on this hand. Soren Kongsgaard flatted from the cutoff seat and then play fell on Alessandro Speranza on the button. He three-bet to 2,475. The two blinds folded before Kenney four-bet to 6,175.

Kongsgaard tanked for a bit and then five-bet shoved for 18,850. Speranza didn't do anything right away. He took a little bit, double checked his hole cards and then eventually announced that he was all in. Kenney had about 20,000 behind and Speranza had him covered. Kenney gave it up though and let Speranza do battle with Kongsgaard on this one.

Kongsgaard: {A-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}
Speranza: {K-Diamonds}{K-Spades}

The flop came down {K-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{3-Hearts} and upon seeing it, Kongsgaard immediately stood from his chair and began turning around. That's when the {5-Spades} landed on the turn and left him drawing dead. By the time the {2-Spades} landed on the river, Kongsgaard was about 30 feet away from the table headed to the door. Speranza moved to about 60,000 in chips.

Nicolas Levi made a standard raise from the hijack and Krakow Matan three-bet on the button and Levi made the call. Both players shared a flop of {A-Hearts} {Q-Spades} {5-Spades} and Levi check-called a 2,000 Matan bet. Both players then checked the {Q-Diamonds} turn before Levi took the betting lead at the sight of the {6-Diamonds} river. The bet was 4,200 and Matan folded his hand without too much fuss.
