Event #55: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Zo Mourning

• Ниво 8: 200-400, 50 ante

After building it up the last few levels, Zo Karim is mourning the loss of a few chips right now, having doubled up a short stack losing a classic race,

It was Karim's {10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} versus the shorty's {a-Hearts}{q-Clubs} and the {6-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{8-Spades}{7-Spades} run out ensured the double.

Sabat's Heater

• Ниво 8: 200-400, 50 ante

Eddy Sabat is now officially on a post-dinner heater and now has his stack in the 50,000-chip range.

One tablemate called him out on it, but Sabat was quick to point out this shorty had been all in behind more than once and is clearly, considering the odds of the hands he's played, getting a lot luckier just to stay alive.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the room, early chip leader and 2014 WSOP bracelet winner Davide Surianio has endured a table change and is simply treading water at this point.

Cantu Makes Some Noise

• Ниво 8: 200-400, 50 ante

Brandon Cantu is making the right kind of noise in this event. He just check called a 1,650-chip bet from one opponent on a board of {6-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{k-Hearts} with about 6,000 in the middle before checking in the dark.

His opponent also checked the {8-Diamonds} river and Cantu claimed kings-up, turning over {k-Diamonds}{9-Spades}. His opponent mucked and Cantu quietly raked in the pot and stacked the chips.

May The Schwartz Be With You

• Ниво 7: 150-300, 25 ante

November Niner Ylon Schwartz decided the best course of action following one opponent's raise and another's call on a {k-Spades}{4-Spades}{3-Clubs} flop was to put enough chips in the middle to cover both opponent's stacks.

Apparently it was the right one as they both folded and Schwartz won the decent sized pot without showdown.
