Bujtas Triples Up, Lefrancois Doesn't

Pascal Lefrancois

There was some commotion on one of the tables as there was a three-way all-in. Pascal Lefrancois was the shortest with 90,000 in the middle position, Laszlo Bujtas had 96,000 in the small blind while Kent Staahle had both of them covered in the big blind.

Pascal Lefrancois: {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}
Laszlo Bujtas: {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}
Kent Staahle: {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}

The board ran out {10-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{a-Hearts}{a-Spades} for Bujtas to hold with the aces and to even improve to a set on the turn and quads on the river to bust Lefrancois and earn a full payout from Staahle.

At the same time, Chris Brewer was eliminated from one of the other tables.

Davies Loses All in Two Hands

poolshir • Level 9: 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante
Seth Davies
Seth Davies

Seth Davies raised to 15,000 from the hijack and the action folded to Ben Heath in the big blind. He took some time and then three-bet to 50,000 for Davies' turn to consider his options. In the end, he opted to shove with the bigger stack. Heath called for the 229,000 he had in front of him.

Ben Heath: {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}
Seth Davies: {j-Hearts}{j-Clubs}

The board ran out {4-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{3-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} for Heath to hold with the rockets to double up with and leave Davies behind with a mere 21,000.

On the next hand, Davies pushed those chips in from the middle position and Christoph Vogelsang called from his direct left while the rest folded.

Seth Davies: {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs}
Christoph Vogelsang: {a-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}

The board ran out {9-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{10-Diamonds} for Vogelsang to flop a pair and improve to two pair on the turn to deal the final blow to Davies.

Dvoress Stacks Pardo

ajlamers • Level 9: 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante
Juan Pardo
Juan Pardo

Daniel Dvoress opened to 14,000 in early position and Juan Pardo three-bet to 32,000 from the cutoff. The action folded back to Dvoress who shoved all in and Pardo called off his stack of around 150,000.

Juan Pardo: {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}
Daniel Dvoress: {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs}

Pardo was looking for an ace to stay alive but the {9-Hearts}{6-Spades}{4-Hearts} flop provided no immediate help. The {10-Diamonds} on the turn and the {5-Spades} on the river also bricked out, sending Pardo to the rail.

Kings for Kaverman

ajlamers • Level 9: 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

Byron Kaverman raised it up from early position and Sam Grafton defended from the big blind. The flop came {10-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{4-Spades} and Grafton checked to Kaverman who continued for 28,000. Grafton called and the {a-Diamonds} landed on the turn.

Grafton checked again and Kaverman checked it back to the {7-Spades} on the river. Both players knuckled the table again and Grafton showed {9-Clubs}{4-Clubs} for sevens and fours. Kaverman turned over {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} for kings and sevens to scoop his first pot.

Vogelsang Has a Pair

Christoph Vogelsang

The flop read {8-Spades}{10-Spades}{2-Spades} with around 95,000 in the middle already.

Kent Staahle checked from under the gun but Christoph Vogelsang bet 23,000 from the hijack. Staahle responded with a reraise to 75,000 which Vogelsang called.

They both checked through the {8-Diamonds} on the turn to the {8-Hearts} on the river. Staahle took a few seconds and then led out with a bet of 50,000. Vogelsang took his time, sat up straight after about 20 seconds, and then flicked in the chips for the call when his time had almost ran out.

"Do you have a pair?" Staahle asked.

"I do," Vogelsang replied.

Staahle tabled the {a-Hearts}{j-Hearts} for Vogelsang to show to the {7-Spades}{7-Hearts} for his pocket pair to make a full house with the cards on the board to scoop the pot.
