Event 3: $3,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em/Pot-Limit Omaha



Heavyweight Bluff

• Ниво 9: 500-1,000, 0 ante

One of those heavyweight pairings are playing their match at a frantic pace and also have a continual stream of conversation on the go.

Eric Froehlich raised to 400 and Shaun Deeb called quickly to see a {q-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{k-Hearts} flop. Froehlich continued for 500 and Deeb check-called to the {3-Hearts} turn.

Deeb went for the check-raise at this juncture when faced with a 1,300 bet. He made it 3,300 to go but snap-folded when shoved on.

"The only time I bluffed today....," said Deeb who down to 6,600 of his first bullet.

Vedes Busts

It was a surprise to see Tommy Vedes in one of the last matches to be completed in round two as he's normally a spin-up or bust-out quick kind of guy.

He lost a pot to go very short, managed to double-up, but busted the very next hand.

He shoved with {a-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{q-Clubs} and was called by his opponent holding {a-Spades}{6-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}.

The board ran out {j-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{6-Spades}{6-Diamonds}. Vedes stopped the dealer on the turn so he could work out the many out to look out for on the river. It only improved his opponent though and that was that.
