Kings Give "Clementine101" A Double Up


Level 18 (2,500/5,000/625)

"kingboss93" raised to 12,000 under the gun, and a few seats over, "Clementine101" raised to 64,000, leaving himself just a few hundred behind. "kingboss93" raised to put him all in holding Ace-King, and "Clementine101" called with {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}. The kings would hold on a runout of {10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{7-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}, and he doubled up to just under 140,000.

"MrMonkeyJones" Doubles Into the Chip Lead


Level 16 (1,500/3,000/375)

After a min raise from "Schwibbs1", and two calls, including "MrMonkeyJones", "A Frequent ?" reraised to 33,000. "Schwibbs1" folded, but "MrMonkeyJones" put in a reraise to 72,000, only to see "A Frequent ?" five bet shove for over 200,000.

"MrMonkeyJones" called for just a bit less with {a-Clubs}{a-Spades}, and "A Frequent ?" was surely disgusted when he showed {k-Clubs}{k-Spades}. The board ran down {j-Spades}{4-Clubs}{3-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{4-Spades}, and the aces held up to secure a massive double up.

Big Double For "Paulie_Card$"


Level 16 (1,500/3,000/375)

"Paulie_Card$" min raised to 6,000 from under the gun, and chip leader "SanguineTears" reraised to 12,000. The big blind called, as did "Paulie_Card$", and the flop came down {j-Spades}{10-Spades}{2-Diamonds}. All three players checked, and the {10-Diamonds} hit the turn.

It checked to "Paulie_Card$", who fired 22,481. "SanguineTears" called, and the river brought the {7-Spades}. "Paulie_Card$" went for it all, moving all in for over 80,000, and "SanguineTears" called with just {a-Hearts}{8-Hearts}. It was no good, as "Paulie_Card$" had rivered a straight with {9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}.

Ladies Give "PhillyCanuck1" A KO


Level 13 (800/1,600/200)

"PhillyCanuck1" raised it up to 3,200, and "sussyouout187" reraised to 10,560 next to act. Action folded back to "PhillyCanuck1", and they called to see the flop of {j-Spades}{7-Clubs}{3-Hearts}. "PhillyCanuck1" led out for 12,560, and "sussyouout187" called. The {a-Clubs} hit the turn, and "PhillyCanuck1" moved all in, having "sussyouout187" covered by a few thousand.

They called with {9-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}, but they were in a world of hurt, as "PhillyCanuck1" showed pocket queens. No miracle nine on the river, and a nice pot was sent over to "PhillyCanuck."

Queen on the River for "GordonBombayV"


Level 12 (700/1,400/175)

"Thicc Rick" moved all in from under the gun for 19,000, and next to act, "GordonBombayV" moved all in for more. He showed {a-Spades}{q-Clubs}, but was well behind the {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds} of "Thicc Rick." The flop of {7-Clubs}{7-Spades}{6-Spades} brought some chop outs, but after a {5-Hearts} on the turn, a queen came on the river to save the day for "GordonBombayV", who collected the knockout.
