Here Comes Holz

mnuwwarah • Level 23: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Rainer Kempe made it 275,000 and Fedor Holz defended his big blind. They both checked a {9-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{5-Spades} flop and Kempe tapped the table again on the {a-Clubs} turn.

Holz bet 650,000 and Kempe folded. A hand later, Holz was at it again, shoving all in from the small blind and forcing the shortest stack at the table, Erik Seidel, to give up his big blind.

Seidel Doubles Through Holz

mnuwwarah • Level 23: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

From the small blind, Fedor Holz raised all in against Erik Seidel's big blind. Seidel made the call to put himself at risk for 495,000 with the {Q-Clubs}{9-Spades}. Holz had two under cards with the {8-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}, but was live.

The {Q-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{4-Hearts} flop improved Seidel to top pair, but he wasn't out of the Woods just yet. Holz still had an inside straight draw.

The turn was the {2-Spades}, and the river was the {10-Spades}. Both missed Holz and gave Seidel the double to back over 1 million.

Updated Chip Counts on Break

mnuwwarah • Level 22: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Phil Hellmuth just dropped a pot to Rainer Kempe in which Kempe bet 90,000 from the small blind on an {a-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} flop, and Hellmuth called on the button. Kempe check-called 80,000 on the {2-Clubs} turn, and both players checked the {4-Spades} river. Kempe won the showdown with a hand that used the {a-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{4-Spades} on the board, but his cards didn't appear on screen.

Hellmuth Folds Fives To Holz

mnuwwarah • Level 22: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Phil Hellmuth raised to 170,000 from the under-the-gun position, and Fedor Holz reraised from the small blind. Hellmuth gave it up, showing that he was folding the {5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}, and Holz showed just the {9-Hearts}.

On the next hand, Holz opened to 150,000 on the button, and everyone folded.

Broadway for Holz

mnuwwarah • Level 22: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

From under the gun, Fedor Holz raised to 140,000. Rainer Kempe made the call from the big blind, and the flop came down {K-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{5-Spades}. Kempe checked, Holz bet 135,000, and Kempe made the call.

The turn was the {K-Diamonds} to pair the board, and Kempe checked again. Holz checked behind, which paved the way for the {10-Spades} to land on the river. After Kempe checked, Holz took his time to mull over his decision. Holz even used one of his time extension plaques to give himself some extra thought. Eventually, he bet 465,000.

It was then Kempe's turn to go into the tank, and he used up two time extension plaques while thinking. In the end, Kempe decided to call, but could only muck his hand when he saw Holz had rivered Broadway with {A-}{Q-}.

Making It Rain(er)

donpeters • Level 22: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Phil Hellmuth made it 150,000 and Rainer Kempe stomped all over the raise, three-betting to 450,000.

Hellmuth folded, saying something about Kempe running over him as he showed {a-}{9-}. Kempe turned over the dominating {a-}{q-} proving he has both the stack, and now the cards, to do exactly that.

Hellmuth Gets Frustrated, Folds

donpeters • Level 22: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

A number of breaks have slowed the action.

Phil Hellmuth raised to 150,000 in the small blind, and Rainer Kempe called. Action was the same on a {2-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{k-Hearts} flop, and the {q-Clubs} hit the turn. Hellmuth fired 340,000 this time and was again called. A {10-Clubs} completed the board, and Hellmuth checked. Kempe bet 425,000 fairly quickly, causing Hellmuth to get out of his chair and pace around a bit in frustration. He said something to Kempe and shrugged at the heavens before sitting down and mucking.
