Event #47: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Baldwin Doesn't Win


Three players created a pot of about 4,000 and saw a flop of {J-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{7-Hearts}. The big blind checked and Eric Baldwin bet 2,300. The player in Seat 1 announced a raise and before he could put anything in the pot, the big blind folded out of turn.

Seat 1 then threw in five yellow chips worth 1,000 each. Baldwin studied his opponent long and hard before tossing his cards into the muck. Baldwin took a small hit and is down to around 20,000.

King High is Good


Chris Moneymaker opened the pot from the cutoff seat with a 1,000-chip raise, and the player on the button re-popped it to 3,000. The action was folded around and Moneymaker called.

The flop came out {2-Hearts}{5-Spades}{a-Hearts} and both players checked. The turn card was a {4-Diamonds} and Moneymaker fired a 4,000-chip bet. His opponent called.

When the {a-Clubs} hit the felt on the river, Moneymaker check and his opponent fired a 6,000-chip bet.

Moneymaker tanked, said "What do you got over there?" and eventually called.

His opponent tabled {8-Hearts}{6-Hearts} and Moneymaker took the pot, showing {k-Hearts}{10-Hearts}.

Moneymaker is now up to 53,000 chips.

Little To None


We're not sure what happened but Jonathan Little has been eliminated. According to his Twitter:

"Out. Got in with AJ getting 3:1 vs AK. Always fun to play all day and get nothing. 6th time this series for me."

Aces for Hinkle

Blair Hinkle
Blair Hinkle

A player in middle position opened the pot with a 800-chip raise and Blair Hinkle called in the hijack seat. When action arrived to the player in the small blind, he re-popped it to 2,500.

The initial raiser called and Hinkle moved all in for an additional 5,025 chips. The small blind moved in for more and the initial raiser tanked.
After counting his chips, in a very strange way, he folded jacks face up.

Hinkle tabled pocket aces and the player in the small blind showed pocket kings.

The {6-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{a-Spades} board, gave Hinkle almost 20,000 chips.

Beasley is a Beast


The player on the button raised to 1,100 and Mike Beasley made the call from the small blind. Beasley then checked the {8-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} flop, allowing the button to bet 1,100.

Beasley called and checked the {10-Spades} on the turn. This time the button bet 2,100, and again, Beasley called. When the {10-Hearts} hit the river, Beasley led out with a bet of 2,100. The button called but mucked when he saw Beasley's {K-Clubs}{9-Clubs}. After the hand Beasley was up to around 47,000.

The Plan


Day 1B will play the same amount of time that Day 1A did, which means we will play for 45 minutes into Level 9 and then call it a night.
