Schemelev Smiles

Stud 8

On third street the action was three handed between Scott Seiver, Chun Lei Zhou and Vladimir Schemelev. On fourth it was Schemelev who paired his hand and he bet, Zhou called and Seiver folded.

Fifth street had Schemelev betting again and Zhou called. On sixth street Zhou called another bet and on seventh it was Schemelev who checked. Zhou looked down at his cards, bet and his Russian opponent called.

Zhou waved his cards in a manner that suggested he did not have the best hand. Schemelev showed {10-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} and his pair of eights took down the pot. The Russian pro, who finished second in this event in 2010 and 10th in 2011, put up a huge smile and well into the next hand he kept it going.

"Look," Scott Seiver said, as he pointed at Schemelev, "He's still smiling!"

Schemelev indeed kept smiling as he's slowly rebuilding his stack.

Oppenheim Bets Every Street

[user153638] • Ниво 15


Gary Benson completed with the {J-Spades} and then called when David Oppenheim raised with his {A-Hearts}. Benson proceeded to call bets on fourth through sixth streets, and then Oppenheim fired one last time on seventh. Benson squeezed out his last card, but he must not have liked it as he folded his hand.

Benson: {x-}{x-} / {j-Spades}{4-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{5-Clubs} / {x-}
Oppenheim: {x-}{x-} / {a-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{5-Spades} / {x-}

Benson Bests Oppenheim

Josh_Cahlik • Ниво 15

No-Limit Hold'em

David Oppenheim and Gary Benson took a flop of {6-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}. Oppenheim checked to Benson on the button who fired out a bet of 25,000. Oppenheim came over the top with a check-raise to 53,000.

"How much is it?" asked Benson. "Hundred straight."

Without missing a beat, Benson cut out 100,000 in chips and pushed the three-bet forward. Oppenheim took a moment before tossing out a call. Fourth street paired the board with the {2-Spades} and Oppenheim checked. Benson flung 125,000 into the middle and Oppenheim let go of his hand. Benson picked up the pot and now has roughly 1.39 million in chips - almost exactly one million more than Oppenheim who sits at 395,000.

Hennigan Doubles Before Break

[user101598] • Ниво 15

Pot-Limit Omaha

Before the break, John Hennigan raised to 12,000 from under the gun, Robert Mizrachi called on his direct left, James Obst called in the hijack seat, Jason Mercier called on the button, and Frank Kassela called out of the small blind.

"Do I even have to look?" David Steicke said in the big blind.

He did look, then begrudgingly folded.

The flop fell {a-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{3-Spades}, Kassela checked, Hennigan bet the pot (66,000), and the action folded to Mercier. He rereaised, Kassela folded, and Hennigan called all in.

Hennigan: {k-Hearts}{k-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{4-Spades}
Mercier: {q-Spades}{7-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}

Mercier flopped the wheel, but Hennigan was drawing to a spade flush. He hit it on the turn ({3-Spades}), and the {j-Hearts} bricked off on the river. Johnny "World" doubled to 330,000 chips, while Mercier dropped to 806,000.
