Henry Orenstein is one of poker's most significant figures, winner of the seven-card championship in 1996 and inventor of the hole-card camera. He's also a Holocaust survivor with nearly 100 patents to his name. He's back in World Series of Poker action here in Event #61, and doing quite well.
Yesterday, Remko Rinkema chatted with Nolan Dalla about Mr. Orenstein, and we encourage you to check out that video below:
Eric Buchman busted Chris Tryba and Jennifer Harman, who he crippled, also hit the rail in an earlier hand versus Jan-Peter Jachtmann.
On fifth street, Buchman bet with Tryba already all in. Matt Grapenthein called. Sixth street kept Buchman betting and Grapenthien calling after which seventh was dealt. This time Grapenthien check-folded when his opponent bet again.
Buchman: / /
Tryba: / /
Grapenthien: / /
Buchman showed for three of a kind sixes and Tryba showed his before hitting the rail.
On fifth street Eric Buchman bet and Jennifer Harman called. On sixth Buchman quickly bet again and Buchman called. On seventh Buchman bet in the dark and Harman shook her head as she put in the call.
Harman: / /
Buchman: / /
Buchman tabled and with two pair he took this pot down. Harman now sits on just 7,500 chips.
Players have been busting out at a rapid pace and we're already down to 39. The current average is 78,462 chips or 19 big bets.
On fourth street we picked up the action when Adam Friedman had hit a pair of queens. He bet and Steve Billirakis called after which Oxana Cummings folded. On fifth street Friedman bet again, Billirakis called.
Sixth street gave Friedman three of a kind queens and this time Billirakis snap-folded when Friedman bet.
Billirakis: / --fold
Cummings: / --fold
Friedman won the hand and is back up to well into six figures.
On seventh street, both John Cernuto and Oxana Cummings checked while Andre Akkari was all in.
Cernuto: / /
Akkari: / /
Cummings: / /
Cernuto showed for two pair and he took down this pot to knock out Akkari and take some chips from Cummings.
