Event #8: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Dealer Tilting Turner?

• Level 15: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

Jon "PearlJammer" Turner has not had the best luck recently and an inattentive dealer seems to be making him impatient.

In a recent hand, a middle position player raised for 6,000 and Turner made the call from the small blind. The big blind folded but nothing happened for almost a minute. Turner eventually starting waving his arms and said, "Can we get this hand moving? I'd like to play this hand." The dealer apparently did not notice the big blind fold.

The dealer dealt out a flop of {10-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and both players checked. Again, nothing happened and Turner reminded the dealer that both of them had checked, clearly getting impatient.

Both players checked down the {Q-Spades} turn and {10-Hearts} river. Turner flipped up a pair of treys, which was good enough to scoop the pot. Turner is sitting with 150,000

Fish Fumbles

[user80015] • Level 15: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

Facing a raise to 5,000 from the hi-jack, Darryll Fish three-bet to 13,600 only to have the big blind move all in for 44,400. The original raiser folded, but Fish made the call.

Fish: {J-Spades}{J-Hearts}
Opponent: {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}

The board ran out {5-Spades}{8-Spades}{2-Spades}{3-Spades}{3-Diamonds} to see Fish's jacks cut up by a flush as he sinks to 37,000 in chips.

Young Counterfeited by Running Fours

• Level 15: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

Jordan "Jymaster11" Young continued his roller coaster ride on Day 2, after getting into an all-in confrontation with his {6-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}. The flop read {A-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{9-Spades} and the internet legend found his two-pair was ahead of his opponent's {A-Hearts}{K-Spades}.

The {4-Spades} on the turn was an interesting card for Young, keeping him in the lead while giving his opponent a backdoor flush draw. Young was poised to continue an incredible rush, in which he has repeatedly busted smaller stacks with inferior holdings, if he could dodge a four, an ace, a king or a spade on the next card.

River: {4-Hearts}

With that, Young's two-pair had been counterfeited and his short-stacked opponent collected a much needed double. The man known online as "Jymaster11" is still in healthy shape with a stack of about 220,000 chips.

As we go deeper into the night here on Day 2 of the $1,000 No-Limit Hold'Em event, Layne Flack and Eric Mizrachi were spotted toasting each other with plastic cups of beer and exchanging tips on their favored types of whiskey.

While many players around the Amazon Room can be seen sporting intensely concentrated gazes, both Flack and Mizrachi appear to be relaxed and in the mood to have some fun while they pursue this WSOP bracelet.

Cold Deck For Turner

• Level 15: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

Jon "PearlJammer" Turner raised under-the-gun for 5,000 and was met with an all-in raise for 70,000 from the cutoff. Turner called and was dejected to see his opponent turn over {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}, which was an overwhelming favorite to Tuner's {A-Hearts}{K-Spades}.

Turner mucked his hand when the flop came {3-Hearts}{8-Spades}{A-Clubs}, which left him drawing dead. An irrelevant {4-Spades} and {Q-Clubs} came on the turn and river respectively.

Turner still has plenty of chips to play with, however, and is sitting with 165,000.

Young Snags Gutshot

[user80015] • Level 15: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

From the hijack, Jordan Young opened with a raise only to get three-bet all in for a further 17,300. Young made the call.

Young: {8-Hearts}{4-Spades}
Opponent: {K-Diamonds}{10-Spades}

The board rolled out {J-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{7-Spades} to see Young snag a dirty gutshot on the river (to go along with his two live cards) to send another player to the rail while he soars to 235,000 in chips.

"That's his standard play!" stated one of Young's friends from the rail as they watched Jymaster11 tear this tournament up.

Bazeley Bangs A One-Outer

• Level 15: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

We Missed the action ourselves but caught up a tablemate of Jacob Bazeley who recounted the action for us. Apparently, after a player opened for 5,200 from under-the-gun and another player called, Bazeley re-shoved for approximately 42,000 chips.

Only one of the initial bettors came along and that player showed down {Q-}{Q-}, which was in great shape against Bazeley's {J-Spades}{J-Clubs}. The player who filled us in on the action also let us know that he folded a jack, so Bazely was down to exactly one card in the deck for his tournament life.

The flop of {10-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds} was extremely fortunate for Bazeley, as his miracle one-outer had been delivered. The turn and river didn't bring any help to his opponent and Bazeley found himself with the most unlikely of double-ups to remain healthy as we head down the home stretch of Day 2.
