This latest hand got off to quite the start when Liv Boeree raised to 525 from middle position. The player in the cutoff then shoved all in for 1,925 and was followed an all-in four-bet from Sandra Naujoks on the button. Boeree got out of the way and let the two all-in players duke it out.
Naujoks needed some serious help, but she didn't get any as the hand played out with a board of .
Scott Seiver had been making the most of time in between hands at a cash game to go all in at his tournament table. It had been working well for him until he shoved for 2,625 in late position after two early-position players had limped.
The player in the big blind looked him up and the two previous limpers folded.
Seiver picked up a gut-shot straight-draw on the flop, but his opponent filled up when the came on the turn. Seiver was up and gone before the had time to land on the river.
Grayson Ramage was in the big blind when the button raised to 600. The small blind three-bet to 2,000 and when action got to Ramage, he jammed for his entire stack of 2,750. The button folded, but the small blind called.
All Ramage had to do was stay ahead, and he did just that as the board ran out .
With the double up, Ramage is now up to 6,400 chips.
A few hours ago we had taken a couple of strolls past Scott Seiver's table and each time we passed he was nowhere to be seen. Consequently we had assumed Seiver had busted once we saw him sitting at a $25/50 PLO game.
How wrong we were.
While walking through the cash game area, which is still surrounded by tournament tables, we were nearly knocked over by Seiver, who was rushing back to get into his cash game. When he got there he explained to Jason Mercier that he had returned to his table and "Someone had raised, so I sat down and jammed. The guy asked if I had somewhere to be and I said 'Yeah, the cash game.' Then the guy shook his head and said 'You probably don't even have anything' and folded."
Seiver then explained that "Tournaments are easy. I've picked up 1,000 chips every hour. Now I'm good for another hour."
