Shuttled Out

After doubling up Arnie Lim, Peter Smyth found himself in a tight spot. He put his chips at risk with {A-Spades}{8-Hearts} and was called by Kalan Shuttlewood. Shuttlewood tabled {7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} and the board did nothing for Smyth and just like that, he was gone.

Lim-ping Away

Arnie Lim just doubled through Peter Smyth in a hand that goes a little something like this.

All the chips were shipped in the middle preflop. Lim tabled {5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} and Smyth showed {k-Hearts}{8-Hearts}.

The board ran out {3-Hearts}{7-Spades}{q-Clubs}{q-Spades}{2-Diamonds}.

Lim doubled to 54,000. Smyth dropped to 35,000.

Two hands after doubling up, Lim was sent packing when he shipped his chips in the middle with {6-?}{6-?} and was called by Hienz Kamutzki with {A-?}{k-?}.

The flop brought trouble for Lim with the {4-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{q-Spades} and the {4-Clubs} turn and {7-Diamonds} river didn't help him out either and Lim was sent to the rail.

Confused Players

It's a bit more difficult for the players here at the Crown Poker Room to differentiate the tournament PokerPro tables from the cash game PokerPro tables. We've seen numerous occasions of cash game players trying to get in on the action and being turned away.

Khoueis Doubles Up

Suzy Khoueis has taken a few of Chris Brammer's chips with a double up.

Brammer raised to 10,000. Khoueis moved all her chips in the middle and the two went to the flop.

Brammer: {q-Spades}{10-Spades}
Khouiss: {4-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}

Flop: {k-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}

The turn brought the {k-Clubs} and the river {3-Spades} sealed the deal for Khoueis.

Brammer is still sitting pretty with 248,000 and Khoueis has 80,000.

Not Balanced

There's a slight imbalance in the final two tables. One table is loaded with big stacks and the other is full of shorties. We're sure to see some fireworks soon.

Chris Brammer Moves Over 200,000

Chris Brammer has just moved over the 200,000 chip mark, as he now sits on 220,000.

Brammer got into a pot with Peter Smyth recently. On a flop of {Q-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{q-Hearts} Smyth checked to Brammer who made a half pot bet of 8,000. Smyth called and the {4-Hearts} hit the turn.

On the turn Smyth led 16.000 and Brammer made the call. The river was the {10-Hearts} which both players decided to check. Smyth would muck when Brammer turned over {A-Clubs}{8-Hearts} for a flush on the river.
