Piccioli Beats The Smiling Adomkevicius


Bryan Piccioli raised to 700 and Pokerstars Team Pro Joao Nunes called in the cutoff before Aneris Adomkevicius three-bet to 2,325 in the big blind. Piccioli and Nunes made the call, and we were three way to a flop of {A-Diamonds} {6-Diamonds} {5-Hearts}

Adomkevicius bet 2,850, Piccioli raised to 5,800, Nunes folded and Adomkevicius made the call. The turn was the {3-Diamonds} and Adomkevicius checked. Piccioli bet 7,275 and Adomkevicius smiled, feinted to bet and then folded before tapping the felt and saying, "nice hand."

Short Ones

  • George Danzer lost more than two-thirds of his stack in the first level. He's re-building, slowly. We caught the Team PokerStars Pro opening to 700 from the hijack and continuing for 800 on a {10-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} flop. A player on the button called but folded on the flop.
  • Dermot Blain doubled up Roger Suter after putting him to the test for his tournament life. The two were heads up to the turn where the board read {8-Spades}{7-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}. Blain had 20,000 out in front of him to cover the 17,800 Suter had behind. The Swiss tanked for a two minutes and called with {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} and was up against Blain's {6-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}. The river came {3-Hearts} and Blaina handed over the necessary chips
  • Talal Shakerchi has been moved tables and has dropped a few chips. He may be 100k down after going from chip leader to out in the Super High-Roller but he seems to be reveling in his environment away from his stress full day job as a hedge fund manager.

Ivey On The River


Andrew Chen raised to 600 on the button and Phil Ivey called in the big blind. The pair were soon staring at a flop of {8-Spades} {4-Hearts} {2-Spades} where Ivey check-called a 800 Chen bet. The turn of {6-Hearts} was checked through, and then Ivey bet 2,000 when he saw the river {2-Clubs}. Chen mucked his hand and Ivey won the pot.

Three Barrels For Chen


The action folded around to Andrew Chen, in the small blind, and he raised to 800. Ankush Mandavia was seated in the big blind and he made the call.

Flop: {9-Hearts} {7-Spades} {4-Diamonds}

Chen bet 900 and Mandavia called.

Turn: {K-Diamonds}

Chen bet 2,200 and Mandavia called.

River: {7-Diamonds}

Chen fired his third barrel of 5,250 and Mandavia called once more. Chen turned over {K-Hearts} {Q-Hearts} and it was good as Mandavia mucked his hand unseen.
