Event #49: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Lind Doubles


Facing a raise from the cutoff, and calls from both the button and small blind, George Lind moved all in from the big blind for roughly 7,000.

The cutoff folded but the button made the call.

Lind: {5-Spades}{5-Hearts}
Opponent: {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades}

The board ran out {K-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} to see Lind double through to 15,500 in chips.

Big River Call for Miner


William Miner opened to 525 from the cutoff and found a caller in the big blind.

The flop fell down {Q-}{10-}{7-} with two hearts and after a check from his opponent, Miner fired out 600 only to get check-raised to 1,750.

Miner made the call to see the {A-} land on the turn and a 2,000-chip bet follow. Miner again made the call as the {K-} landed on the river.

Facing another strong bet; this time amounting to 3,500, Miner went into the tank before stating, "I'm the worst!" and making the call.

Miner tabled his {Q-}{5-} for middle pair, and his opponent mucked his hand to see Miner pushed the pot to move to 22,000 in chips.

Ivey Sabat'd


In Event #26: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em / Six Handed Eddy Sabat managed to double through Phil Ivey numerous time before eventually going on to finish in the money at 64th place.

Approaching one of our PokerNews reporters, he imparted us with the fact that he truly does have the wood over arguably the greatest poker player.

After being crippled to just 200 earlier in the day, Sabat doubled in a blind-on-blind battle before it again, and then again before they both had their table broken.

Amazingly they both wound up at the same table where Sabat managed to spike one more double to see his once crippled stack swell to around 5,500 courtesy solely of Ivey.

With Ivey now crippled, he was unable to endure the Sabat-esque return to life and eventually made his way to the rail.

Shorr Can't Get Anything Going


There was about 1,600 in the pot and three players to the {A-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} flop. The big blind checked, Shannon Shorr bet 1,025 and the button made the call. The big blind then moved all in for a total of 4,600.

Shorr thought it over and then moved all in over the top, forcing the button to fold. Shorr turned over {A-Hearts}{J-Clubs} for top pair but was behind the big blind's two pair with {4-Hearts}{3-Clubs}.

The {10-Clubs} on the turn was no help to Shorr, although it did give him a few more outs. Unfortunately for him, the {7-Spades} on the river was not one of them. Shorr is down to just 3,400.

No Love for Phil?


"I wanna re-raise Phil Hellmuth so he can go psycho!" uttered a player on a table that was closely located to Hellmuth's.

I think everyone does buddy!

Bansi Busto


Praz Bansi has recently hit the rail.

Finding himself all in holding {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs} against an opponent's {J-Spades}{J-Diamonds}, the board ran out queen-high to see Bansi hit the rail.

Scott Gets Unlucky


On a flop of {2-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{2-Spades}, a player in middle position bet 1,000 only to have another player raise to 2,500. Kara Scott then moved all in for 850 more. The middle position player folded and the other made the call.

Scott: {A-Spades}{2-Diamonds}
Opponent: {K-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}

Scott was in a dominating position and even improved to a full house when the turn came {5-Clubs}. Unfortunately for her, the river was the {5-Hearts}, giving both players the same full house for a chop. Instead of doubling, Scott only has 4,000.
