"Not a Lot of Diamonds Left"

[user153638] • Level 21: 6,000-12,000, 0 ante

David "Devilfish" Ulliott raised the pot (42,000) from the cutoff and received a call from Jason Mercier in the big blind. Both players checked the {9-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} flop, which was followed by the {8-Clubs} on the turn. Mercier was first to act and fired out 57,000, which Devilfish called. Both players then checked the {10-Clubs} river.

"Straight," said Ulliott.

"Straight," Mercier also proclaimed as he showed {K-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}.

"Diamond would have been nice. You're too lucky for that shit to come off," replied the Devilfish as he showed the inferior {A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}.

"Not a lot of diamonds left," was Mercier's reply as he stacked his newly won chips.

Bleznick Slips

The action folded around to Jared Bleznick who limped in from the small blind; Gregory Brooks checked his option from the big blind, so it was heads-up to the flop of {7-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{K-Spades}.

Bleznick c-bet 16,000, but Brooks called before both players checked down the turn of the {4-Diamonds} and the repeat {4-Hearts} on the river. Brooks opened {9-Spades}{8-Spades}{7-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} but his hand was best, so he picked up the pot.

Chop It!

All the money was in on a flop that read {A-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{2-Clubs}; Daniel Fuhs was the player at risk with {A-Spades}{J-Clubs}{10-Spades}{5-Spades}, but Jarred Bleznick was also holding the same two pair with {A-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{2-Hearts}.

Nothing changed after the turn and river ran out {7-Clubs}, {K-Hearts} and that can only mean one thing - a chopportunity!

Jared Bleznick 712,000 2,000
Daniel Fuhs 172,000 -21,000

Callaghan Chipping Away

David Callaghan has just doubled up through Michael McDonald as the action continues with our remaining 14 players in WSOP Event #35.

McDonald raised to 28,000 from under the gun and the action folded to Callaghan who re-raised to 96,000 from the small blind. McDonald called, then bet the pot after the flop of {5-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{2-Spades}, which was enough to put Callaghan all-in.

Callaghan: {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{4-Spades}
McDonald: {Q-Spades}{J-Hearts}{10-Spades}{7-Clubs}

"Man, that was a good flop for you," McDonald exclaimed. Indeed - it was in fact a good board for Callaghan all round, as the turn and river ran out {K-Hearts}, {4-Diamonds} to see Callaghan fill up and score the double up. He's now on 250,000 in chips as a result

Michael McDonald 320,000 -100,000
David Callaghan 250,000 -64,000

Moorman Takes a Stand


David "Devilfish" Ulliott raised to 30,000 from the cutoff only to have Chris Moorman reraise all in for 106,000 total. The blinds cleared out and Ulliott flashed his cards, refusing to call the additional 76,000. Moorman took down that pot, but he is still short stacked.

Chiu Takes A Big One From McDonald

Mike "timex" McDonald raised it up to 28,000 from the cutoff and David Chiu made the call from the small blind.

The flop came {8-Hearts}{q-Spades}{7-Clubs} and Chiu checked to McDonald who bet 45,000. Chiu called.

The turn was the {4-Hearts} and again Chiu checked to McDonald who bet 115,000. Chiu again called.

The river came {a-Clubs} and this Chiu one last time checked over to McDonald who this time bet 230,000. Chiu instantly made the call and showed {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{7-Spades} for a flopped set of sevens and a rivered set of aces. McDonald showed {10-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{9-Spades}{6-Diamonds} for just a pair of nines.

McDonald fell to just 420,000 after the hand and Chiu is now our chip leader with 1,200,000

David Chiu 1,200,000 170,000
Michael McDonald 420,000 -407,000

Winzeler Doubles Through Brooks

• Level 21: 6,000-12,000, 0 ante

Greg Brooks raised it up to 26,000 on the button and Hans Winzeler called from the big blind.

The flop came down {10-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} and Winzeler checked to Brooks who bet 31,000. Winzeler then check-raised to 81,000 and Brooks called.

The turn was the {2-Clubs} and again Winzeler checked to Brooks who this time bet 42,000. Winzeler again check-raised, this time the pot which put him all in for 234,000 total. Brooks took one more look at his hand and made the call.

Brooks: {a-Clubs}{5-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}
Winzeler: {q-Hearts}{3-Spades}{2-Spades}{2-Hearts}

Winzeler had turned the set and Brooks was drawing dead to a five. The river was the {4-Clubs} and Brooks shipped the chips over to Winzeler who now has 700,000. Brooks fell to just around 1,000,000

More Aggression from Devilfish


Jason Mercier raised to 24,000 under the gun and received calls from David "Devilfish" Ulliott on the button and Peter Jetten in the big blind. Action checked to Ulliott on the {2-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{10-Clubs} flop and he put out a bet of 30,000. Jetten wasted little time in making the call while Mercier got out of the way.

Both players checked the {7-Hearts} turn, which was followed by a Jetten check on the {4-Hearts} river. The Devilfish took the opportunity to bet 63,000, which was enough to push Jetten off his hand.

Bennani: {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}
