End of Day 2 of Event #39: $2,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em/Omaha

• Level 18
David Lestock
David Lestock

David Lestock will be going into Day 3 as the chip leader just ahead of Kyle Zartman and Cameron New, he sits atop the podium at the moment with 452,000. Zartman has 450,000 and New 448,000 to lead the the remaining 22 players.

131 began today as we lost the likes of Dani Stern, Eli Elezra, Barry Greenstein and JP Kelly before the money. At this point David Williams took a commanding lead as he won a huge four-way all in pot in PLO, getting aces to hold to give him a stack that was five times the average at that point.

Williams was also responsible for eliminating the bubble stack, Greg Lee sending him home with nothing and putting the other 63 players into the money. Indeed, it was looking unlikely that anyone would stop the Team PokerStars Pro, but Williams lost a late big pot with top two pair against top set and was crippled as a result, going out late in the money.

Other players remaining in the event tomorrow include the ever dangerous Scott Clements, well-known for his Omaha prowess, former bracelet winner Rami Boukai as well as David Baker and the always entertaining Carter Gill.

We'll be restarting tomorrow at 3pm as this tournament attempts to play out amid the likely loud noise of the French and British crowds watching other finals.

On a board reading {K-Clubs}{7-Spades}{7-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}, Joe Hachem checked to Nathan Wade, who bet 36,500. Hachem then surprised the table by moving all in for 42,500 more. Wade did not look happy, but he made the call anyway.

Hachem: {K-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{8-Diamonds}
Wade: Mucks

The {A-Spades} was put out on the river as Hachem doubled to 190,000.

Zartman Eliminated Milisits

[user153638]

PLH

Just a few hands after doubling up, Ryan Milisits has hit the rail. It happened when Carter Gill opened for 12,000 from middle position and Kyle Zartman three-bet to 40,000 on the button. When action reached Ryan Milisits in the big blind, he four-bet all in for 105,000. Gill got out of the way while Zartman made the call.

Zartman: {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds}
Milisits: {J-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}

It was a classic race for Milisits' life, one that he lost as the board ran out {K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}.

Milisits' Tournament Life on the Line

[user153638]

Scott Clements raised from the cutoff only to have a short-stacked Ryan Milisits raised pot from the big blind. It was 32,500 more back to Clements, who though a moment before slamming down a stack of pink T5,000 chips. Milisits called off his remaining 8,500 and the cards were flipped.

Milisits: {A-Spades}{6-Spades}
Clements: {Q-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}

Milisits was ahead and stayed there as the board ran out {J-Spades}{3-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{3-Spades}. Clements congratulated his opponent and did not seem fazed by the hand,

Patterson Bluffs Hachem Off a Boat

• Level 18

PLO

On the river of a {10-Clubs}{10-Spades}{5-Hearts}{5-Spades}{3-Clubs} board, Joe Hachem bet out 15,000 only for Tyler Patterson to raise to 60,000. Hachem tanked for several minutes, "It's got to be quads, what else can you have?"

Finally he mucked and asked Patterson to show.

Patterson said, "I'm pretty sure I'm bluffing here..." turning over {Q-}{6-}{5-}{4-}.

Hachem jumped out of his chair, disgusted with himself before saying, "Nice bet...when did you grow such a big set of balls?" He also admitted that he made a full house on the river.

"I just wanted to get you off ace-five," replied Patterson.
