Event #13: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

So Long and Thanks for all the Schoenberg

Erica Schoenberg was down to her last 525 chips when she got it all in preflop and was called by a single opponent.

Schoenberg: {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}
Opponent: {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}

We didn't catch the cards, but what we do know is that Schoenberg lost the race and now has a beautiful afternoon to spend outdoors. Or at a cash game.

Early Exit for Yang


The 2007 Main Event Champ won't be adding another gold bracelet to his collection today. Jerry Yang was all in for his last 700 or so on a board reading {7-Spades}{5-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}.

Yang had made a pair with his {7-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}, but it wasn't good enough to overcome his opponent's {4-Clubs}{6-Clubs} for a flopped straight.

Yang was eliminated on the hand and became one of the early casualties on Day 1B.

Filippi Takes a Small Pot


Aciton has been pretty slow at the start of the tournament. Typical pots seem to be like the one that just occurred at Amnon Filippi's table.

With about 300 in the pot, Filippi bet 225 on a board reading {5-Spades}{3-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}. Filippi's opponent in Seat 2 promptly folded and gave up the small pot.

Action is sure to pick up as missing players take their seats and the levels tick away.

Three's Not a Crowd

Three gentlemen at Table 25 have been playing three-handed for over 25 minutes now. They've got more players assigned to their table, but they have yet to show. Steal those blinds, fellas.

"Not a Good Start"


Jerry Yang was sheepishly looked at out field reporter and said, "Not a good start." This was in reference to his stack of 1,150, less than half of what he started with minutes ago.

Yang might be comforted by the fact that players have already busted from the tournament, so having chips at this point is better than not having them at all.
