$1,100 No-Limit Hold'em Accumulator



Benson Flush with Chips

[user153638] • Ниво 5: 100-200, 0 ante

Gary Benson, who survived the Day 1a field with 14,400, is back in action looking to accumulate some more chips to take into Day 2.

In a recent hand, a player in middle position opened for 700 and Benson called from the cutoff. Another player called from the big blind, and three players took a flop of {5-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{2-Diamonds}. The big blind wasted little time in moving all in for 2,400, the original raiser folded, and Benson made a quick call.

Benson: {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}
Big Blind: {10-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}

The big blind was ahead with top pair, but Benson had flopped the nut flush draw. The {7-Spades} turn didn't complete it, but the {J-Diamonds} river did. Benson collected the post and is up to 12,000, not too far off what he bagged last night.

Two Germans Left

• Ниво 5: 100-200, 0 ante

We haven't seen Heinz Kamutzki for a while, but Timo Pfützenreuter has joined the action and is sitting next to fellow German Ismael Bojang. Brendon Rubie is the short stack on that table, and Giacomo Fundaro also creates quite some action there, too.

It was Fundaro who had a set of tens on the flop and knocked out a short stack for 2,025, who held pocket eights. Shortly after that, the Italian raised from the button to 450, and Bojang defended his big blind. Both checked the {7-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} flop and Fundaro then bet 525 on the {K-Spades} turn. Bojang called, and then won the pot with a bet of 1,300 after the {9-Diamonds} river had completed the board.

Madsen Stars on Broadway

[user153638] • Ниво 5: 100-200, 0 ante

Just before the break, Mark Bartrom opened for 350 from middle position only to have 2006 World Series of Poker Player of the Year Jeff Madsen three-bet to 1,050 from the cutoff. The button and both blinds folded, and then Bartrom called to see a flop of {10-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{q-Clubs}.

Bartrom checked, Madsen bet 1,025, and Bartrom thought for 40 seconds before releasing his hand. It was a good thing he did too as Madsen showed that he had flopped the joint with the {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}.

Second Break of Day 1b

The players are on a second 15-minute break of the day.

Heimiller Joins the Action

• Ниво 4: 75-150, 0 ante

We just noticed Dan Heimiller sitting down and the American has had four cashes during the WSOP in the summer including the golden bracelet in the $ 1,000 No Limit Hold'em - Seniors Championship (Event #17) for a payday of $ 627,462 . Heimiller was on the same "short 21 hour flight" as Antonio Esfandiari and will try to accumulate as many chips in the current flight.

Bad Beat Story for Hoskin

• Ниво 4: 75-150, 0 ante

On the turn of a {8-Clubs} {10-Spades} {K-Spades} {7-Spades} board, Joel Hoskin got the remainder of his stack in with {A-Spades} {A-Diamonds} and found a customer in Tony Kambouroglou. The latter had flopped top pair with {K-Diamonds} {Q-Diamonds} and some of his outs were gone due to the nut flush draw of Hoskin on the turn.

It was the {Q-Clubs} on the river that sent Hoskin to the rail and he just shook his head. Not much you can do, that's poker.

Truong Trounced

[user153638] • Ниво 4: 75-150, 0 ante

"I'm out," Tam Truong informed us as he passed by our desk. He then explained that he lost with a full house to quads, though he was quick to point out his opponent had one-card quads (meaning three of the four were on the board). It made little difference as the result was the same.

"I'll see how I feel," Truong responded when asked if he'd be returning for the Day 1c flight.
