Event #36: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Carbonari's Fortunes Turn

We just wrote about how Daniel Carbonari had lost 140,000 to Scott Montgomery, but he recently had a change of luck and is back to about the same position he was in before those hands.

With only 108,000 in front of him, Carbonari was looking at a raise to 47,000 from our chip leader Timothy Beeman. He decided to shove all in for just 61,000 more and Beeman looked him up.

Beeman: {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs}
Carbonari: {j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}

It would take some work for Beeman's hand to improve, which it failed to do on a flop of {9-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}. The turn was the {4-Hearts} and the river came {3-Spades} which was good news for Carbonari, who now has 256,000 chips.

Carbonari Having Trouble With Montgomery

Two consecutive hands saw Daniel Carbonari lose a combined 140,000 to Scott Montgomery.

In the first hand, Montgomery had raised to 40,000 from middle position. Carbonari misread the raise and put about 20,000 into the pot. Once he was informed that the bet was twice that, Carbonari mucked his cards and lost the 20,000.

In the very next hand Montgomery raised to 40,000 once more. Carbonari called again, but this time for the right amount.

The flop came {3-Spades}{5-Hearts}{8-Spades} and Montgomery checked to Carbonari, who bet 60,000. Montgomery asked for a count and was informed that Carbonari had about 105,000. Montgomery then raised to 200,000 and Carbonari folded, leaving himself short.

Scott Montgomery made an early-position raise to 26,000. Luther Lewis decided to make a call in the hijack before Timothy Beeman three-bet to 77,000. Montgomery made the fold, but Lewis decided to see some cards and called.

With the chips he won in that pot, Beeman is now up to 1,100,000.
