Cage Knocks Out Davies

GeoffFisk • Level 17: 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

A bottom two pair versus top two pair cooler left Scott Davies with five big blinds. On the following hand, Davies shoved that short stack, and Tom Cage made the call.

Scott Davies: {k-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}
Tom Cage: {a-Clubs}{8-Clubs}

Board: {9-Hearts}{8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{a-Spades}

The runout was more than enough for Cage to seal the elimination, with a full house coming in on the river. Davies finished in 17th place.

Elsewhere in the room, Scotty Yarnell was eliminated a few hands previously, going out in 18th place.

Craig Disalvo

Craig Disalvo, who started the day on 17 big blinds, is now sitting on an 80 big blind mountain after knocking out two opponents, including Day 1a chip leader Shawn Daniels.

Disalvo, Daniels and Rudy Wusstig went all in three-ways preflop, with Disalvo going into the hand with the biggest stack of the three.

Rudy Wusstig: {a-Diamonds}{10-Spades}
Shawn Daniels: {j-Clubs}{j-Spades}
Craig Disalvo: {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs}

Already in great shape when the cards were turned over, Disalvo left his opponents drawing dead when the {10-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{k-Spades} hit the board, giving him quad kings. The turn {2-Spades} and river {6-Diamonds} were just a formality, and Disalvo is now among the chip leaders.
