Harwood Hanging Tough

After his recent knockout of Tommy Vinas, Richard Harwood looked to add another notch to his belt and called the all-in bet of another player.

Showdown:

Harwood: {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}
Opponent: {A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}

The player with all of his chips at risk was dominated by Harwood's stronger ace, and after the board rolled out {Q-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{6-Clubs} Harwood's two-pair sent another player to the rail.

James Pritchard Pushing Forward On Day 2

After a short stacked player raised all-in from under-the-gun, putting his last 35,500 at risk, James Pritchard called him down with {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds}.

The opponent's {J-Clubs}{K-Clubs} was dominated by Pritchard's big slick, and the final board of {6-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{3-Spades}{7-Clubs}{4-Hearts} offered no help. By eliminating this player from the tournament Pritchard boosted his chip stack to nearly 200,000.

Tommy Vinas' Two-Pair Taken Down On River

With the board showing {8-Clubs}{4-Spades}{J-Clubs}{A-Hearts} after the turn, Tommy Vinas shipped his last 50,000 or so chips into the middle. Richard Harwood decided to make the call and showed down {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades} for top pair, top kicker.

Vinas was in good shape with his {J-Spades}{8-Hearts} for a flopped two-pair and the river card would determine if he survived this all-in confrontation.

River: {A-Clubs}

Harwood found one of his outs and made trip aces to eliminate Vinas. Harwood now sits with over 300,000 chips and is becoming a force late in Day 2.

Bob Chow Chips Up With Quad Aces

• Level 16: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante

With the board reading {A-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} and over 44,000 chips already in the pot, Bob Chow heard his opponent say exactly what he wanted hear, declaring "I'm all-in." The stack at risk was over 80,000, representing a significant overbet of the pot, but Chow did not need to calculate pot odds or anything else for that matter.

Chow snap-called and proudly turned over his {A-Clubs}{A-Spades} for quad aces, while his stunned opponent showed down {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs}. Both Chow and the other had flopped their sets, but Chow held the more powerful pair in the hole and after the turn, he couldn't be beaten.

This win propelled Chow to 146,000 in chips while his opponent hit the rail wondering how he could have played the hand any differently.
