Oliver Bet-Folds

[user101598] • Ниво 5: 200-400, 100 ante

An opponent in the One Seat opened from early position, Chris Oliver called near the button, and the blinds released. Both players drew one card, Oliver's opponent checked, and Oliver tossed out around 2,000. His opponent check-raised all in for 5,600 total, and Oliver tank-folded.

Oliver is now down to just 10,000 chips.

[user101598] • Ниво 5: 200-400, 100 ante

When we reached his table, Daniel Negreanu called the all in of an opponent who stood pat.

"I'm breaking this," Negreanu said, tossing out the {10-Spades}.

"I have the nuts," his opponent grinned, tabling {7-}{5-}{4-}{3-}{2-}.

Negreanu laughed, showed {8-}{7-}{6-}{3-}, and flipped over his new card; a {j-}. Negreanu is still around starting stack though; he's got 26,000 chips in front of him.

Тагове: Daniel Negreanu

Oh, Another By the Way

[user66118] • Ниво 5: 200-400, 100 ante

Phil Hellmuth is here. In case that last post wasn't a good indication of that. He joined just as registration closed, and we also see John Juanda, Erik Seidel, and Michael Mizrachi, Jason Mercier, Erick Lindgren, and Huckleberry Seed.

What a Brat


Under the gun, Phil Hellmuth raised to 1,400, and Eli Elezra three-bet to 3,500 from the hijack seat. When the action came around to Andrew Brown in the big blind, he four-bet to 11,000, but Hellmuth still wanted to play for more. He came back over the top with another raise to 24,000 straight, and that finally won him the pot right there.

A Numbers Game

[user66118] • Ниво 5: 200-400, 100 ante

The numbers are in for Event #16. And they're good. A total of 126 players turned up for this event, a nice increase from the 101 last year. Their money has generated a prize pool of $1,184,400, and that will be divided among the last 14 players.

The bottom level is worth $24,043, and the prize jumps over $50,000 for the final six. Get to three-handed and you'll be guaranteed at least $143,833, and the eventual champion of this event will walk away with $367,170 and a priceless WSOP bracelet.

A Bad Eight?

• Ниво 5: 200-400, 100 ante

Nick Binger raised to 1,200 from under the gun, Jon "PearlJammer" Turner called and Layne Flack raised to 4,600. Binger opted to fold while Turner called.

Turner drew one card while Flack stood pat. Turner then bet 10,000 and Flack called all in for around 9,000. Turner declared "bad eight" which elicited a chuckle from Flack who replied "Is there such a thing?" Turner's "bad eight" of {8-}{7-}{6-}{4-}{3-} was good enough and Flack was sent to the rail.

Turner now has around 52,000.

As the World Turns

• Ниво 5: 200-400, 100 ante

John Hennigan was just eliminated by Roland Isra. We missed how the betting went but Isra showed {9-}{8-}{7-}{5-}{2-} which was enough,and Johnny World mucked his hand and made his exit from the table.

First in from the cutoff seat, Tom Dwan made it 1,100 to go, and Scott Seiver called from the big blind. They each took one card, and Seiver check-called 2,500 from "Durrrr".

Seiver's {J-} {10-} {6-} {4-} {3-} was the winner, and he's up to 44,500 with that pot. Dwan is down to 13,000, there or thereabouts.
