Sergey on Fire


Sergey Lenyuk is now sitting on a pretty big stack after eliminating two players in a span of about fifteen minutes.

Pre-flop, the cutoff went all-in for his later 18,100 and Sergey made the call fro the big blind.

Sergey had {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}, which was ahead of the other player's {a-Clubs}{10-Hearts}. The board blanked out for both players, sending the cutoff to the rail.

Then, a couple of hands later, Sergey made a raise pre-flop and Colin Farr went all-in for his stack of 23,600. Sergey made the call and the cards were tabled.

Sergey showed {a-Spades}{10-Hearts} against Colin's {a-Clubs}{8-Clubs}. He was leading pre-flop and it got better as the flop cae {4-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}.

The turn and river blanked out, sending Colin to the rail. Sergey is now sitting on about 150,000 in chips.

New Chip Leader

Lei Long
Lei Long

We've got a new chip leader after a monster pot that just occurred a while ago.

Pre-flop, it was a three-way all-in between the Victor Chen, Lei Long, and the big blind, with the size of their stacks arranged from biggest to smallest.

BB: {a-Spades}{4-Clubs}
Lei: {q-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}
Victor: {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}

It was looking like Victor was about to eliminate two players simultaneously as he had pocket rockets and maintained his lead as the first four cards came {10-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{10-Spades}.

Not this time, though -- a queen landed on the river to give Lei a full house, denting Victor's stack and eliminating the big blind.

Lei is now at about 260,000 while Victor is down to 150,000.

Victor Chen
Victor Chen

Pre-flop, Victor Chen raised to 25,000 from the button and Carlos Chang went all-in for about 20,000 more. Victor made the call and the cards were tabled:

Victor: {j-Clubs}{j-Hearts}
Carlos: {a-}{k-}

Victor was ahead pre-flop but it wouldn't look so good as the flop came {2-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds} to pair Carlos' ace.

"Jack! Jack!" shouted Victor in vain as the {7-Spades} landed on the turn.

It was a different story on the river, though. "Oh my God!!!" screamed Victor, as the {j-Diamonds} appeared to give him the set and seal Carlos' doom.
