Monkey Business

• Level 14: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

The "banter" between Corey Zeidman and Michael Sigel has been going on for a while now to the point where both were complaining about the other. The tournament director came over and said he would stand at the table for a few minutes so that tempers wouldn't flare further.

At this point, Zeidman said that Sigel looked like a chimpanzee for which the former was given a one hand penalty. Zeidman complained that Sigel had been insulting him before and everyone else could vouch for this and that he [Zeidman] had not said anything back.

Either way, it's calmed down for now, although the floor are keeping an eye on the table.

Collopy Bubbles

• Level 14: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Jim Collopy was all in on fourth street once more against old foe Corey Zeidman.

Collopy: {x-}{x-} / {10-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}{3-Spades} / {x-}
Zeidman: {x-}{x-} / {2-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{8-Clubs} / {x-}
Reslock: {x-}{x-} / {6-Hearts}{6-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} / {x-}

Collopy was all in by fourth street and Ming Reslock ended up folding on seventh street to a Corey Zeidman bet. Zeidman showed {8-}{8-}{2-} for a full house and Collopy flipped {A-}{4-} for a wheel draw, just needing a low card but he could only catch the {9-Clubs} and was eliminated as a result.
