Schneider Fades a Ton of Geller's Outs

Level 6 : 300/600, 600 ante
Scott Schneider
Scott Schneider

Greg Geller raised to 1,600 from early position and then called when Scott Schneider three-bet to 4,200 from middle position.

When the flop came down {9-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}, Geller checked and Schneider bet 7,500. Geller responded by check-raising all in and Schneider called off for 39,400 total.

Scott Schneider: {a-Hearts}{a-Spades}
Greg Geller: {3-Clubs}{5-Clubs}

Schneider had pocket rockets while Geller had a ton of outs. The latter had flopped both a flush and open-ended straight draw, and he had two pulls at it.

Fortunately for Schneider, neither the {9-Spades} turn nor {5-Spades} river helped Geller and his pocket pair held.

Anderson Heads Back to Bemidji

Level 6 : 300/600, 600 ante

Eric Anderson, who many know for his seven years working for the MSPT, was just eliminated from the tournament.

It happened when he raised the cutoff to 2,000 holding the {a-Spades}{k-Spades} and the two players in the blinds called to see a {3-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} flop. Both blinds checked, Anderson continued for 5,000, and only the player in the big blind called to see the {8-Spades} turn.

The big blind then moved all in and Anderson called off his remaining 5,100. The player in the big blind simply said, "I'm on a draw," and tabled the {q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}.

While the diamond didn't come in, the {9-Spades} on the river was just as good and just like that Anderson's Big Slick went down in flames.

Sammy Aweida
Sammy Aweida

Todd Sipple found himself all in for 28,400 and flipping for his tournament life against Colorado's Sammy Aweida.

Sammy Aweida: {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}
Todd Sipple: {q-Clubs}{q-Hearts}

It was a classic flip and Sipple was just looking to hold to score the double. That's just what he did as the board ran out a safe {4-Spades}{3-Spades}{j-Clubs}{q-Spades}{q-Diamonds}.

Quack, Quack for Fetherkile

Level 5 : 300/500, 500 ante

Ryan Fetherkile limped from middle position and Josh "Lightning" Borders raised to 1,800 from the cutoff. The button and blinds all folded and Fetherkile called to see a {3-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{2-Hearts} flop.

Fetherkile checked, Lightning continued for 3,000, and Fetherkile woke up with an all-in check-raise to 12,000.

That did the trick as Lightning released his hand. Fetherkile then showed the {2-Spades}{2-Diamonds} for a flopped set of ducks.
