Ricardo Ibañez - 5th place
Ricardo Ibañez - 5th place

A flurry of action in our first hand as Ricardo Ibañez moved all in over the top of an Andrei Stoenescu raise and was snap-called by the Romanian.

Andrei Stoenescu: {Q-Spades}{Q-Hearts}
Ricardo Ibañez: {A-Spades}{2-Diamonds}

The chance of a first ever Spanish winner was virtually gone after the {Q-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{J-Clubs} flop and Ibañez was out after the {7-Diamonds} turn and {6-Diamonds} river.

Stoddart on the Spot


Here's a sequence of photos from that pot between Fraser MacIntyre and Bruno Lopes. Well done, Neil Stoddart.

A big pot just now, one that must have taken ten minutes to play out.

It began with Bruno Lopes raising under the gun, and he found calls from both Ricardo Ibañez and Fraser MacIntyre. They were in the small and big blinds, respectively. The dealer spread out a {9-Clubs} {2-Spades} {6-Spades} flop, and Lopes continued out with 150,000. That folded Ibañez quickly, but MacIntyre clicked in a check-raise to 300,000. Not to be outdone, Lopes raised it right back to 675,000 total, and MacIntyre called the remainder to see the next card.

It was the board-pairing {6-Diamonds}. When MacIntyre checked to him again, Lopes fired out another 620,000. But he was check-raised again. MacIntyre shoved all in, and Lopes was put to a decision for the ~1.9 million he had left in front of him.

Lopes needed several long minutes to think it over, and he looked quite uncomfortable as he shifted in his chair and ran through the hand in his head. After some time, he asked MacIntyre if a fold would coax a show. The Scot initially declined, but after about 30 seconds he reconsidered. He mentioned that they'd been having a good time, and he offered to show one card if Lopes folded.

"You won't show both?" Lopes asked?

"I'll show you both if you call. I'll show you one if you fold. I think that's a pretty fair deal."

Lopes agreed with that assessment, and after another couple minutes, he folded.

True to his word, MacIntyre spread his two cards out in front of Lopes and let him pick one — the {10-Hearts}. He's now got a massive chip lead after that big pot, and we'll have counts for everyone during the upcoming break.

Ibañez Bluff Fails

• Ниво 28: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Ricardo Ibañez check-raised Bruno Lopes 135,000 flop bet on a {A-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{2-Clubs} to 275,000 but then gave up after he was called, the {7-Clubs} turn and {9-Diamonds} was checked down. Ibañez showed {J-Hearts}{10-Clubs} and Lopes won the pot with {A-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}.

Stoenescu Yields to the Four-Bet

[user66118] • Ниво 28: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Under the gun, Bruno Lopes raised to 135,000, and Andrei Stoenescu three-bet to 290,000. When it came back around to Lopes, he added another half-million to his raise to make it 635,000 total. Stoenescu surrendered.

Mac and Cheese

Fraser Macintyre is well and truly back on the right track after forcing Ricardo Ibañez off his hand in a three-bet pot.

Macintyre opened to 125,000 from under the gun and was called by Bruno Lopes before three-bet to 325,000 from the small blind. Macintyre called but Lopez didn't have the goods to continue.

The flop came {9-Clubs}{10-Spades}{2-Clubs} and Ibañez led for 375,000, only to face an all-in shove from Macintyre. He tanked for a few minutes and let his hand go.
