Four More Hands

GeoffFisk • Level 14: 1,500-3,000, 3,000 ante

The field will play four more hands, and after that Day 1b will come to an end.

Barbosa Turns Flush, Stacks Chips

GeoffFisk • Level 14: 1,500-3,000, 3,000 ante

With {5-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{a-Diamonds} on the board, Cleiton Barbosa bet 15,000 from the small blind, and his early-position opponent went all in for 130,000.

Barbosa made the call.

Opponent: {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}
Cleiton Barbosa: {7-Clubs}{3-Clubs}

Barbosa's flush was still not in the clear, with his opponent having plenty of river outs. The river came a harmless {7-Spades}, however, and Barbosa is up over the 300k mark in the aftermath, while his opponent is out of chips.

Colache Gets Paid on the River

GeoffFisk • Level 14: 1,500-3,000, 3,000 ante

Renata Colache opened to 6,000 from the hijack, the cutoff three-bet to 18,000, and Colache called.

Colache check-called a 12,500 bet on the {4-Clubs}{a-Spades}{2-Hearts} flop. Both players then checked the {k-Hearts} turn.

Colache bet 35,000 on the {q-Spades} river, the cutoff raised all in, having Colache covered, and Colache made the call, putting her last 30,000 in the pot.

The cutoff showed {a-Hearts}{k-}, but saw it was no good against Colache's {j-Clubs}{10-Clubs}, good for the broadway straight.

Ryan Jackson, on the button, and an opponent on the small blind got all of the chips in preflop, with Jackson having his opponent covered.

Small Blind: {a-Diamonds}{9-Spades}
Ryan Jackson: {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}

Board: {q-Hearts}{j-Spades}{5-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{5-Spades}

After scooping the pot, Jackson finds himself among the Day 1b chip leaders as the last level of the night approaches.

Studdard Doubles Up

GeoffFisk • Level 13: 1,500-2,500, 2,500 ante

The under-the-gun player opened to 5,500, another early position player three-bet to 20,000, and Darius Studdard four-bet all in for 48,000.

The under-the-gun player folded, and the three-bettor called, having Studdard covered.

Darius Studdard: {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}
Opponent: {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs}

Board: {5-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{k-Spades}{6-Clubs}{6-Hearts}

Studdard found a king on the flop, and the pair held through the runout, securing the double up.
