More Names Swell the Field

[user252447] • Ниво 2: 25-50, 0 ante

At the end of the first level of play there are 2,031 entrants, breaking the 1,837 set last year.

Jennifer Tilly is in the field and we spotted her three-betting to 600 from the big blind to take it down.

David Peters looks like he lost some chips but got a little back with a well-disguised {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts} prompting his opponent to give and admiring, “Well played.”

A Little Pressure

[user252447] • Ниво 1: 25-25, 0 ante

There was a raise from under the gun to 75 and Jonathan Little and the two blinds called. Four players went to a flop of {j-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}. The blinds checked and the original raiser bet 150.

Little three-bet to 475 and when the blinds folded he got a call and they went to the turn card {10-Clubs}. The raiser check-called a bet of 800 from Little and the river was the {5-Clubs}. Checked to Little he moved all in.

After a few moments of staring at the board Little’s opponent folded and pot was pushed his way.

One Hand and Out

[user252447] • Ниво 1: 25-25, 0 ante

We arrived at the table to see an all-in and a call on the turn of a board showing {8-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}.

The player who moved all in asked Frank Patti, “You got a flush?” and turned over {5-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}.

“No.” Patti told him and turned over {10-Spades}{9-Diamonds}.

The river was the {k-Diamonds} and Patti made a higher flush leading his opponent to say, “Wow. One hand.”
