Tony G Three-Bet Folds

donpeters • Level 10: 6,000-12,000, 0 ante

Dan Smith raised to 24,000 on the button and Tony G reraised to 84,000 from the small blind with 196,000 behind. When action got back to Smith, he reraised the pot to put Tony G all in. Tony G tanked and tanked, but eventually his hand was declared dead as the timer ran out.

"What'd you have?" asked Tony G. "Will you show me?"

"I'll show you for $1,000," responded Smith, but the dealer had grabbed his hand just as Tony G was agreeing to that.

"Will you tell me?" asked Tony G.

"For $1,000," responded Smith.

"No way," finished Tony G with a laugh.

Gimme a G

Tony G raised to 40,000 to start the action, and Mikhail Smirnov three-bet to 150,000 from the small blind. That covered The G, and he called all in for his last 140,000. The cards were turned up, and it was a horse race.

Showdown
Tony G: {10-Diamonds} {10-Clubs}
Smirnov: {K-Clubs} {J-Spades}

The {9-Spades} {2-Clubs} {A-Hearts} flop was a good start for Tony G, now just two cards from the double. The turn {3-Spades} was safe, too , and the river {5-Hearts} cinched up his double.

That pot moves Tony G back into the mix with 292,000, while Smirnov's stack barely shows any sign of that encounter. He's still got about 1.2 million chips and more than half of all in play.

Gus Hansen Eliminated in 5th Place

Gus Hansen - 5th Place
Gus Hansen - 5th Place

Gus Hansen raised from the button to an unknown amount and Mikhail Smirnov reraised to 100,000 from the small blind. After Joe Hachem folded his big blind, Hansen reraised again and then Smirnov shoved all in. Hansen called and put himself at risk with the {A-Spades}{J-Clubs}. Smirnov held the {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}.

The flop came down {9-Spades}{8-Clubs}{7-Spades} and Hansen had missed so far. The turn {2-Diamonds} didn't help him and neither did the {5-Clubs} on the river. Hansen was left with no chips left as they all went Smirnov's way and he was eliminated on the bubble.

Hansen made his way to the rail, collecting his belongings over by the media desk where he was heard mumbling, "F*** me in the ass," as he walked off.
