Corkins in the tank

This hands-per-hour rate at this table is not exactly what Joe Cassidy and Ashton Griffin are used to on the Internet. Actually, it's not what most people are used to live either. That's because Hoyt Corkins is taking a minute or more to make every decision. And three-handed, he has to make a decision fairly often.

This Hand Feels Familiar

The majority of the hands in the last few minutes have had the same pattern. Hoyt Corkins raises, Joe Cassidy folds, and Ashton Griffin three-bets. Corkins spends a minute in the tank and then gives up his hand.

Corkins Takes One from Cassidy with Ace High

Hoyt Corkins was in the small blind and raised to 12,500. Joe Cassidy made the call from the big blind.

The flop came down {K-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{8-Spades} and Corkins bet 10,000. Cassidy made the call.

The turn brought the {5-Diamonds} and Corkins reached into his stack again. He fired 40,000 and Cassidy took his time again while Corkins sat motionless under his cowboy hat and mirrored sunglasses. After a minute, Cassidy made the call.

The river was the {8-Clubs} and Corkins checked. Cassidy checked behind. Corkins declared ace high and tabled the {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}. Cassidy mucked and Corkins won this battle.

Cassidy Bullies Corkins

Joe Cassidy raised, Hoyt Corkins bumped it to 35,000, and Cassidy quickly moved all in. And Corkins went back to his familiar spot at the bottom of a very deep tank. Finally he gave it up, and Cassidy picked up some extra chips.

And We're Back

Hoyt, Ashton, and Joe are in their seats and ready to go.

Race 'Em

The players are on a short break while the staff colors up.

Big Fold for Corkins

Joe Cassidy

The two blinds were in action in this pot for the minimum. On the flop of {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{9-Spades}, Hoyt Corkins fired 4,500. Joe Cassidy made the call.

The turn brought the {7-Spades} and Corkins bet again, making it 20,000 to go this time. Cassidy called once more.

The river was the {5-Spades} and Corkins fired 32,200. Cassidy took a moment and then announced that he was all in. Corkins wanted a count and found out the total bet wad for 185,500. He then went into the tank. After a few minutes in the tank, Corkins fold the {A-Hearts}{10-Spades} for trip tens and gave up a good amount of chips.

Scott Seiver Eliminated in 4th Place ($115,000)

Scott Seiver - 4th Place
Scott Seiver - 4th Place
Action folded to Scott Seiver on the button, and he moved all in for 51,600. Ashton Griffin gave up his small blind, and Hoyt Corkins quickly made the call.

Seiver: {Q-Spades} {10-Hearts}
Corkins: {A-Hearts} {K-Hearts}

The {A-Diamonds} {7-Diamonds} {6-Diamonds} flop was bad news for Seiver, meaning he'd have to go runner-runner to survive. The {K-Hearts} on the turn was the first runner. A jack would give him a straight. "So you're saying there's a chance," said Seiver. But the {7-Spades} on the river was no help, sending Seiver packing in 4th place. He gets $40,000 for his eight bounties and $75,000 for winning his first table. He'll also get an additional $100,000 for accumulating the most bounties unless Hoyt Corkins eliminates Joe Cassidy and Ashton Griffin.

Corking Out the Double

Here comes the cowboy!
Here comes the cowboy!
Scott Seiver raised from the button and then Hoyt Corkins reraised from the big blind. Seiver moved all in and Corkins called.

Seiver: {5-Diamonds}{5-Spades}
Corkins: {J-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}

The board ran out {7-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{10-Spades} and the jack on the turn sealed things for Corkins. He was all in for 138,800 and now has nearly 280,000 chips.
