2009 World Series of Poker

Event 23 - $10,000 World Championship No Limit Deuce to Seven Draw

Steve Sung with the Soul-Read

Steve Sung opened for 48,000 and Villw Wahlbeck called from the big blind. Sung drew one while Wahlbeck drew two.

Sung checked to Wahlbeck, who bet 55,000. Sung made the call.

Turns out it was quite the soul-read, Sung turning up K-T-6-4-2 as Wahlbeck mucked his hand.

Schulman Recovers

It was a nine perfect for Nick Schulman that won a recent pot against Ville Wahlbeck. Wahlbeck opened the button to 45,000 and was called by Schulman in the small blind. Schulman drew one card; Wahlbeck took two. After the draw, Schulman led out for 80,000. Wahlbeck must have been suspicious; he called. But when Schulman showed down 9-5-4-3-2, Wahlbeck tossed his cards to the dealer.

Sung Stings Schulman

Steve Sung opened for 47,000 on the button, Ville Wahlbeck made the call from the small blind, and Nick Schulman put on the squeeze, reraising to 150,000 from the big blind. Sung called the additional 103,000 and Wahlbeck folded. Schulman stood pat and Sung drew one.

Schulman checked to Sung, who checked behind. Sung's T-7-6-4-2 was good against Schulman's J-T-8-7-5 and he raked in the pot.

Schulman Drags the First Pot

Nick Schulman opened the pot to 50,000 and was called by the big blind, Steve Sung. Sung took one on the draw; Schulman rapped pat.

Both players checked after the draw was complete, with Schulman showing down 10-9-8-5-4 to take the pot. It was, perhaps, not the most scintillating hand, but the players are fairly deep right now so we expect to see some cautious play.
