Johnny Lodden

Team PokerStars Pro Johnny Lodden took a break from FIFA 12 on his I-Pad to raise to 3,200 under the gun and Andras Kovacs called in the cutoff seat. The flop was {K-Hearts} {Q-Diamonds} {7-Hearts} and Lodden c-bet for 5,800 and the dark-shade wearing Kovacs made the call. The turn was the {5-Spades} and Lodden pulled back the trigger and shot 13,600 into Kovacs. Kovacs remained stoic and called the bet. The final card in this hand was the interesting {K-Clubs} and Lodden completed his three-barrels with a 22,600 bet. This time Kovac seemed a little phased and indeed he spent a good few minutes in thought mode before eventually mucking his hand.

He's on the Vampage

David Vamplew is on the comeback after winning a sizeable pot just towards the end of the level. Walid Bou-Habib opened to 2,600 from UTG. Vamplew made the call a couple of streets down and Ander Rezola also called from late postion.

Flop: {Q-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{7-Hearts}

All three players took their time but each checked.

Turn: {7-Spades}

Bou-Habib checked a second time, Vamplew bet 5,500 and Rezola made the call as did Bou-Habib.

River: {J-Diamonds}

Bou-Habib checked again and Vamplew thought for a minute before betting 14,000 with just a few thousand behind, Rezola tanked for a couple of minutes but then folded while Bou-Habib quickly called. Vamplew showed {J-Hearts}{J-Spades} and took down a healthy pot.

Tom Marchese, who won his seat online but never came, has been knocked out. He made it 30 minutes into level 11, so well done for that!

Romanello Goes Angheling

Paul-Silviu Anghel opened to 3,600 and then called Roberto Romanello's three-bet to 8,900 from the button.

Both players checked the {K-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{5-Spades} flop before the Romanian led out for 8,000 on the {2-Spades} turn. Romanello called to see the {K-Spades} river and Anghel checked, the Welshman set him all in for his last 18,000.

Anghel thought for a minute and called, Romanello showing {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds} which won since Anghel flashed {10-Hearts}{10-Spades} into the muck.
