Butzhammer's Spades

• Level 17


Rocha: {x}{x} / {Q-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{9-Clubs} / {x-}
Butzhammer: {x-}{x-} / {6-Spades}{9-Spades}{Q-Spades}{A-Hearts}/ {x-}

We arrived at the table on fifth street to see Thomas Butzhammer drop out a bet. Alex Rocha called and the two received their sixth street cards. Butzhammer checked over to Rocha who had four clubs showing. Rocha bet and Butzhammer called.

On seventh, Butzhammer checked once again. Rocha fired out and Butzhammer came over the top with a raise. This immediately made Rocha stir in his seat as he sighed and flung out a call. Butzhammer rolled over {A-Spades}{8-Spades}{6-Hearts} for an ace-high flush. Rocha mucked his cards and Butzhammer took it down.

Cantu Doubles Through Ivey

• Level 17
Brandon Cantu
Brandon Cantu

2-7 Triple Draw

We arrived at the table in time to find a sizable pot building pre-draw between Brandon Cantu and Phil Ivey. On the first draw, Ivey took two new cards and Cantu followed suit. Ivey led out with a bet and Cantu raised all in for 1,000 more. Ivey called.

The second draw saw Ivey pull one new card while Cantu once again opted for two. On the final draw, both players took one.

Ivey: {8-}{5-}{4-}{2-}
Cantu: {8-}{7-}{6-}{3-}

Ivey squeezed his card out first.

"It's a no spotter," said Ivey, rolling over the {2-Hearts} and pairing his deuce.

Cantu then squeezed his card.

"No spotter," he said. "Er- wait. It's a two spotter. Sorry about that." He tabled a {5-}, making his eighty-seven and ensuring a double up.

At that, Ivey rolled his eyes and let out a chuckle, eliciting a big laugh from table mate Daniel Negreanu. Cantu raked the double and now has about 30,000 in chips.

Guo Doubles Through Ethier

• Level 17

Omaha 8

The flop read {K-Clubs}{A-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} and Yuebin Guo was heads up with Denis Ethier. Guo checked, Ethier led out and Guo came over the top with a raise. Ethier called and the {4-Hearts} dropped down on fourth street. Guo continued out and Ethier once again slid out a call.

Fifth street was the {J-Spades} and Guo bet one last time. On this street, he was all in for his final 3,700. Ethier called but mucked his cards after Guo showed {A-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{K-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}, playing his ace-queen for Broadway. Ethier mucked and is now down to just 11,000. Guo, on the other hand, has about 46,000 in chips.
