Event #51: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Monster Stack

Merry Christmas

• Ниво 17: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Is exactly what Soi Nguyen said a few minutes after an opponent five bet shoved jacks into him.

Nguyen had {a-}{a-} and it held to push him up among the leaders with over 400,000.

Sevens for Pollock

[user80015] • Ниво 16: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante

Josh Pollock opened to 6,500 from early position and only the big blind came along as the dealer spread a {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} flop. Both players checked as the {5-Diamonds} landed on the turn and the big blind bet out 4,000.

Pollock called as both players checked the {9-Spades} on the river.

The big blind tabled his {K-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}, but it would be Pollock's {7-Hearts}{7-Spades} that would see him scoop the pot to move to roughly 265,000 in chips.

O'Brien Runs Good

• Ниво 16: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante

Dan O'Brien managed to get one short stack all in and his {6-}{6-} was slightly ahead of that opponent's {a-}{j-}.

A jack on the flop changed all that, but all you Dan O'Brien fans need not worry. He hit a six on fifth street to make a set and bust the shorty.

Metaal Pays Off

[user252447] • Ниво 16: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante

Govert Metaal opened for 6,500 and got one caller in the small blind.

The flop was {9-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{5-Spades} and they both checked. The turn card was the {10-Hearts} and Metaal faced a bet of 7,000. He made the call to go to the river which was the {3-Spades}. Another bet of 8,000 this time from the small blind and Metaal flicked out the calling chips. He couldn’t beat {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts} though and lost the pot.

Simon Trumper shipped his short stack in with {8-}{8-} and got looked up by an even shorter player with {a-}{j-}.

There was an ace on the flop, but an eight on the river and Trumper busted his opponent to move up and out of the danger zone.

Vengrin Doubles

• Ниво 16: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante

Matt Vengrin decided {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} was a good hand to go with.

Lucky for him he got it in against a player with {a-Spades}{k-Clubs} and found the {3-Spades}{k-Spades}{10-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{4-Spades} more than favorable.
