Event #13: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Down to 15 tables

We're almost through Level 14 and we're down to 15 tables and 135 players. We're going to play through another four levels before coming back tomorrow. Stay tuned to see how many players are left at that point. Some huge stacks are emerging as smaller-stacked players are finding themselves having to gamble.

Hamby vs Deeb


Jared Hamby raised to 4,900 from the cutoff and was reraised to 12,700 by Shaun Deeb. Hamby made the call and the two players saw a flop of {K-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}.

Both players checked to the turn, which was the {9-Spades}. Hamby bet 13,500 and Deeb called. Once again, both players checked when the {J-Hearts} hit the river.

Hamby turned over {J-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} for a rivered pair, which caused Deeb to muck. Hamby was up to 105,300 after the hand.

Guagenti Off to the Races


Nick Guagenti called an opponent's all in with {J-Diamonds}{J-Spades}. His opponent held {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds} and the two were off to the races.

The flop came {10-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}, keeping Guagenti in the lead. The {2-Hearts} changed nothing and Guagenti needed to dodge both an ace and queen on the river.

The dealer burned and flipped over the {10-Clubs}, giving Guagenti the pot and bringing his stack to 220,000.

Failla Knocks One Out

Wil Failla was in early position when he raised to 4,500. The player on the button went all in for 21,000 and Failla tanked for a while before calling. Failla showed {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} and was ahead of his opponent's {a-Hearts}{j-Clubs}. The board didn't change a thing, and Failla is up to 130,000.

Black Goes Runner-Runner


At the river on a {8-Spades}{A-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{J-Clubs} board, Andy Black bet 8,000 and was raised by an opponent to 16,000. Black moved all in for 44,100 more and was called.

The unknown player showed {Q-Hearts}{J-Clubs} for two pair but Black hit a runner-runner flush with {K-Clubs}{7-Clubs}. Black doubled on the hand to 122,000.

Schwartz Likely to Feel This Blow for a While

A player from middle position raised to 4,300 and Ylon Schwartz pushed all in for 18,000. A player in the big blind called off his remaining 17,400, and the original raiser folded.

Schwartz: {k-Hearts}{j-Hearts}
Opponent: {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}

Schwartz picked up plenty of outs when the flop came {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}. He managed to find one of them when he made a flush through the {3-Hearts} on the turn. However, when the {7-Hearts} fell on the river, his opponent made a higher flush, crippling Schwartz.

Hamby on a Heater


Jared Hamby was in the small blind and moved all in over an opponent's original 4,600 raise for 32,500. His opponent called and showed {A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs} but was behind Hamby's {4-Clubs}{4-Hearts}.

The flop came {3-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}, which kept Hamby in the lead. The {A-Diamonds} on the turn paired his opponent's hand but also gave Hamby a wheel. The {6-Spades} on the river ensured Hamby the double up and he is now sitting with 68,000 in chips.

Ace on the River for Kellstrom

Dana Kellstrom is back towards the average stack size after doubling up with {a-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} against {j-}{j-}. Kellstrom hit an ace on the river, which was music to his ears, but not likely to his opponent's.
