Woods Gains Momentum and Takes Chip Lead

[user153638] • Ниво 25: 13,000-25,000, 0 ante

Kim Nguyen raised on the button and Darren Woods made the call. He then check-called a bet on the {K-Clubs}{A-Hearts}{A-Spades} flop, which he also did on the {7-Hearts} turn. When the {9-Clubs} peeled off on the river, both players checked and Woods showed {10-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} to take down the pot.

Woods has the momentum here in the early stages of heads-up play. He now has the chip lead with 1.65 million to Nguyen's 1,000,000.

Samuel Golbuff Eliminated in 3rd Place ($85,616)

Samuel Golbuff (3rd Place- $85,616)

Samuel Golbuff raised from the button only to have Darren Woods reraise from the big blind. Golbuff made the call and watched as the flop fell {3-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{9-Diamonds}. Woods led out, Golbuff raised, Woods three-bet, and Golbuff called all in.

Golbuff: {5-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}
Woods: {K-Spades}{K-Hearts}

Woods had a monster and Golbuff was in bad shape; however, the {2-Clubs} turn gave him an open-ended straight draw and reinvigorated the Golbuff rail. Their enthusiasm quickly diminished when the dealer failed to deliver a Golbuff-kind card, instead putting out the {J-Diamonds}.

Golbuff was eliminated from the tournament in third place for $85,616. Meanwhile, Nguyen (1.5 million) entered heads-up play with the chip lead against Woods (1.15 million).

Golbuff Triples, Still Short

[user101598] • Ниво 25: 13,000-25,000, 0 ante

Sam Golbuff raised with the button, and was called by both Kim Nguyen and Darren Woods. The flop came down {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}, Nguyen and Woods checked to Golbuff who moved all in for less than a bet (19,000), and both Nguyen and Woods called. The action was checked down as the board came {6-Spades}, {5-Diamonds}, and Golbuff opened {7-Spades}{3-Clubs} for a runner-runner straight!

Even funnier, Nguyen and Woods both had king-seven.

Golbuff tripled, but is still short with 200,000 chips.

The river was the {j-Spades}, Golbuff check-called one more bet, and Nguyen opened up {a-}{5-} for trip fives. Golbuff mucked, and Nguyen pushed her stack above 1.5 million chips.

Sam Golbuff raised under the gun and Alexander committed his last 32,000 to the pot. Both Kim Nguyen and Darren Woods came along from the blind and it was four-players to the {2-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{7-Clubs} flop. All three active players checked and watched the {8-Spades} hit the turn. Action checked to Golbuff and he fired out a bet. Nguyen then raised, Woods three-bet, and Golbuff folded. Nguyen and Woods raised back and forth until the action was capped, creating a monster pot.

When the {10-Spades} peeled off on the river, Nguyen checked and Woods bet. Nguyen called and showed {10-}{9-}, which is exactly what Woods held. Kuzmin showed {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs} and became our fourth-place finisher ($57,236) as Woods and Nguyen chopped up his chips.

The same action occurred on the {8-Clubs} turn, but when the {3-Spades} hit the river and Woods bet, Nguyen laid down her hand.
