Event #11: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

But It's Far From Over


Kyle Winter open shipped from under the gun for his last 50,000 chips or so and James Campbell was his only caller.

Winter: {K-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
Campbell: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}

The flop fell {4-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{A-Clubs}.

"It's over," somebody on the rail said.

It wasn't over however, because when the {5-Clubs} turned and the {4-Clubs} rivered Winter had himself a winning flush.

Campbell is down to 180,000 chips and Winter is up to 110,000 chips.

Hakim is Livin' the Dream

Jeff Hakim and Collin Cushman built a pot of about 45,000 heading to a flop of {4-Hearts} {10-Clubs} {9-Spades}. First to act, Hakim fired out a pot-sized bet. Cushman moved all in for about 100,000 total, and he was called very quickly to put his tournament life in jeopardy.

Hakim: {K-Spades} {K-Hearts}
Cushman: {A-Spades} {K-Clubs}

The turn {J-Hearts} opened the door a crack, giving Cushman four outs to the gutshot and the double up, but a deuce on the river ushered him out the door and sent the pot over to Hakim. He's all the way up to 382,000 now, and challenging for the chip lead.

It's About the Muney


Hue Mun just doubled through Khoa Nguyen over at Table 370.

Nguyen opened to 15,000 and the action folded to Mun who re-raised all in to 41,000. Nguyen thought momentarily before calling and the hands were opened:

Nguyen: {A-Clubs}{9-Hearts}
Mun: {A-Spades}{10-Diamonds}

The board ran {5-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{8-Spades}{6-Clubs}{J-Hearts} and Mun doubled to 85,000 chips. Nguyen is still sitting just above average with 165,000 chips.

Also Before the Break...

Yat Cheng opened to 12,000 from middle position, and Kyle Bowker moved all in with {A-Diamonds} {K-Hearts}. Cheng snapped with {A-Clubs} {A-Hearts}, and the board of {10-Clubs} {10-Hearts} {6-Clubs} {6-Diamonds} {8-Hearts} didn't change a thing. Three pair is good for Cheng, and Bowker will get to take the rest of the night off.

Sorry, Jason

Apologies for referring to Jason Young as Orson Young in an earlier post. Apparently someone is a fan of typos on our player list.

And apologies to Jason for what happened just before the break. Just a few hands after crushing Jesse Rockowitz, Young ran his pocket queens into pocket kings for a pot worth almost 300,000 chips. The kings held, and Young is right back down to 150,000.

Cousin Orson is nowhere to be found.

Hold Everything

The clock has been paused for an extended 25-minute break, during which the black T100 chips will be raced off and colored up.

We'll be back before you know it.
