Hand 167: Bac Hits a Miracle on the River to Win the Gold Bracelet

2nd Place Finisher Adam Geyer
2nd Place Finisher Adam Geyer
Here's how it went down:

Dao Bac completed the bet from the small blind, after which Adam Geyer made it 60,000 to go; Dao called.

The flop came {5-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{10-Spades}. Bac checked to Geyer who bet 30,000, which was met by a reraise from Bac; Geyer just called.

The {3-Clubs} came on the turn and Bac once again checked to Geyer, who bet 60,000. Bac then check-raised a second time, upping the ante to 120,000. By this time, Geyer found himself pot committed and moved all-in for 30,000 more; Bac called.

When they turned their cards over, Geyer held a commanding lead, revealing {A-Spades}{7-Hearts} for a pair of 7's with the top kicker; Bac showed a mere {4-Spades}{7-Spades} and was drawing to a 6 for a gutshot straight, or a 4 for two pair.

Amazingly, the {4-Hearts} was the last card off the deck, giving Bac his two pair and the gold bracelet.

For his second place finish, Adam Geyer received $86,691 in prize money.

Hand 166: Geyer Survives First All-in

Adam Geyer raised from the small blind and Dao Bac made the call. The flop came {9-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{5-Spades} and both players checked.

The {2-Hearts} fell on the turn and Geyer checked to Bac, who bet 60,000. Geyer then moved all-in for 15,000 more and Bac made the call.

When the cards were revealed, Geyer had the lead, showing {Q-Clubs}{J-Clubs} for top pair with a Jack kicker; Bac turned over {10-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} for a pair of 9's.

The river brought an irrelevant {8-Clubs}, and Geyer doubled up to right around 250,000 on the hand.

Dao Bac and Adam Geyer
Dao Bac and Adam Geyer
Adam Geyer completed the bet from the small blind and Dao Bac raised it up to 60,000 from the big; Geyer called.

The flop came {10-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{K-Clubs} and both players checked.

The {8-Spades} came on the turn and Geyer checked to Bac, who led out with a bet. Geyer then check-raised Bac, making it 120,000 to go, after which Bac reraised to 180,000; Geyer just called.

The {7-Hearts} fell on the river and Bac made one last 60,000 bet that was called by Geyer.

At the showdown, Bac revealed {J-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}; he had flopped a straight. Geyer mucked his hand and dropped below 200,000 chips as a result.

Hands 147 - 154

Very little action ensued over the next seven hands. For the most part, Bac and Geyer exchanged bring-ins and antes, but neither gained any significant ground.

Geyer did, however, take down a small pot on Hand 152. Bac had bet 60,000 on sixth street, but folded when Geyer raised it to 120,000.

Bac received the {A-Hearts} on fourth street and bet 30,000 and again, Geyer made the call.

Both players checked on fifth street, but Bac bet another 60,000 on sixth when he was dealt the {J-Hearts}; Geyer called.

Bac fired one last 60,000 bet on the river and Geyer folded.
