Big Shove On Turn from Williams

donpeters • Level 36: 80,000-160,000, 15,000 ante

From the small blind, Josh Williams raised to 340,000. He was attacking Ryan Riess' big blind, but Riess pushed back with a reraise to 560,000. Williams called.

The dealer spread the {8-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} flop, and Williams checked. Riess bet 610,000, and Williams made the call.

The turn was the {J-Diamonds}, and Williams surprised Riess with an all-in shove for a ton of chips. Riess questioned why the bet was so large, but wound up folding with a shake of his head and letting Williams take the pot.

There hasn't been a whole ton of action coming from three-handed play, but who can blame the players? After all, the clocks have just ticked past 5:00 AM local time here in Hammond. Even one of Ryan Riess' supporters is passed out dead asleep in a chair on the rail. Here are three hands of action, all coming one after another.

On the first hand, Josh Williams had the button and folded before Riess raised to 325,000 from the small blind. Tripp Kirk defended his big blind with a call, and the flop came down {9-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}. Riess checked the flop, Kirk bet 265,000 and Riess called.

Then, the {K-Spades} fell on the turn, and Riess checked again. Kirk bet 400,000, and Riess called. After that, the {2-Clubs} completed the board on the river, and both players checked. Riess showed the {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs} for a top pair, top kicker, and he won the pot.

On the next hand, Riess had the button and opened the action with a raise to 325,000. Williams made the call from the big blind to see the flop come down {Q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{6-Spades}. Williams checked, Riess bet 315,000, and Williams called.

The {6-Diamonds} paired the board on the turn, and both players checked to see the {2-Spades} complete the board on the river. After they both checked again, Riess showed the {A-Hearts}{2-Clubs} to win the hand.

On the third and final hand of this trio, Kirk raised on the button to 325,000, and Riess made the call from the big blind. Following a {J-Hearts}{7-Spades}{4-Diamonds} flop, Riess check-folded to a bet of 265,000 from Kirk.

"We Don't Lose Flips"

SantanaBandana

Tripp Kirk opened to 325,000 on the button, and Ryan Riess moved all in for effectively 4.16 million from the big blind. Kirk thought for a few seconds then made the call.

Kirk: {k-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}
Riess: {10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}

"We don't lose flips," Ashly Butler, who is cheering on Kirk, said cooly.

The {j-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{2-Hearts} flop gave Kirk a leading pair of queens, and his friends erupted. The turn and river bricked {4-Clubs}, {2-Clubs} respectively, and just like that Kirk is back in the game.

Ryan Riess us 9,750,000 -4,695,000
Tripp Kirk us 8,320,000 4,620,000

Riess the Beast

donpeters • Level 36: 80,000-160,000, 15,000 ante

After Josh Williams limped in from the small blind, Ryan Riess raised to 375,000 from the big blind. Williams called and took a flop of {J-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{2-Clubs} before checking to Riess. Riess fired 420,000, and Williams check-raised to 925,000. Riess made the call.

The turn was the {Q-Hearts}, and Williams bet 550,000. Riess made the call to see the {8-Spades} complete the board on the river. Williams opted to go with a check, which prompted Riess to fire 1.725 million. Williams gave it up, and Riess won the pot.

Riess Can't Call Williams

donpeters • Level 36: 80,000-160,000, 15,000 ante

On the button, Josh Williams raised to 320,000. Ryan Riess made the call from the small blind, and the flop came down {A-Spades}{K-Spades}{Q-Spades}. Both players checked.

On the turn, the {2-Clubs} landed on the felt, and both players checked again. Then, the {A-Hearts} paired the board on the river. Riess checked, and Williams bet 450,000. Riess studied for a bit, then folded, and Williams won the pot.

Kirk Gets Some Back

Tripp Kirk raised to 355,000 from the small blind, Josh Williams defended his big blind, and the flop fell {6-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}. Kirk led for 325,000, and Williams called.

Both players checked after the {5-Hearts} turned, and Kirk checked again after the {4-Hearts} fell on the river. Williams slid out 435,000, and Kirk begrudgingly called.

Williams showed what looked like a {6-}, but we're not sure. Kirk had the best hand with {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts}, and scooped the pot.

Josh Williams us 12,550,000 -1,110,000
Tripp Kirk us 3,700,000 1,060,000
