Arieh and Danchev Battle

[user80015] • Ниво 1: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

From the button Dimitar Danchev opened to 12,000 and Josh Arieh defended his big blind. The board of {9-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{5-Spades} was checked down before Danchev bet out 15,000 on the river to force a fold from Arieh.

On the next hand Danchev opened to 12,000 from the cutoff and Arieh again called from the blinds as the dealer spread a {8-Spades}{10-Hearts}{Q-Hearts} flop. Both players checked and when the {Q-Diamonds} on the turn paired the board, Arieh tossed in 18,000 to prompt a fold from Danchev.

PCA Champ Flops a Set

[user101598] • Ниво 1: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

Colin York raised to 12,000 on the button, Dimitar Danchev called in the small blind, and Maxx Coleman defended his big blind.

The trio all checked on a flop of {8-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}, and the turn was the {q-Diamonds}. Danchev led out for 32,000, both of his opponents called, and the river was the {a-Clubs}.

The 2013 PCA Main Event champion led out again - this time for 67,000 - and Coleman tank-called. York released his hand quickly, and Danchev revealed {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs} for a flopped set of nines. Coleman mucked.

[user80015] • Ниво 1: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

The action folded round to David Trager on the button and he raised to 13,000 with Douglas Foster defending his small blind.

The dealer fanned a {7-Spades}{7-Hearts}{2-Hearts} flop and both players checked as the {K-Clubs} landed on the turn and Trager's 13,000-chip bet was check-called by Foster.

When the {7-Diamonds} landed on the river, Foster reached towards his stack in readiness to make a bet and Trager quickly kicked his cards to the muck to see the pot pushed to Foster.

Bang! Bang! 12 Remain on Final Day of the Shootout

What the final 12 are playing for
What the final 12 are playing for

Welcome back to the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino and the 2014 World Series of Poker for Day 3 of Event #6: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout!

948 players began this tournament on Friday, and being a shootout format, it meant that whoever could be the last player standing on their table would advance to Day 2 and make the money of $4,411. 120 players survived into Day 2 where another shootout round would begin, but unfortunately for the likes of Josh Pollock, Allen Kessler, Greg Merson, Steve Gross, Christian Harder, Isaac Baron, Kyle Julius, Mike Matusow, Humberto Brenes, Eugene Katchalov, Joseph Cheong, David "Bakes" Baker and Shannon Shorr, they would all fall just shy of reaching the final day of play.

With 12 players currently remaining, the tournament has been altered to two six-handed tables until we reach our official final table of nine where everyone will have their eyes on the top price of a WSOP gold bracelet and $259,211 in prizemoney. Two-time WSOP bracelet winner Josh Arieh headlines the final 12, and with five other WSOP final tables to his name - including the 2004 Main Event - he is the most experienced WSOP player remaining. Jared Jaffee has a couple of WSOP final tables to his name and a recent WPT title while long-time WSOP grinder Alex Bolotin has seven WSOP final tables to call on including a win in the 2009 $5,000 Ante Up for Africa Charity Event.

However due to the unique shootout format it is truly anyone's tournament to win as less than three big blinds separate Steven Loube (361,000) and Steven Geralis (346,000) in chip counts. Here is how the final 12 will line-up.
