Look Out for Gary

EricRamsey
Limit Hold'em:

Jonathan Tamayo comes in raising, and Frank Gary calls. The flop comes {2-Diamonds} {8-Hearts} {4-Clubs}. Tamayo bets out, and Gary doubles the bet. Tamayo calls quickly.

The turn is the {6-Clubs}. Tamayo checks, Gary bets again, and Tamayo calls.

The river is the {3-Spades} and both players check. Gary turns over the winner: {J-Spades} {8-Diamonds}, and he rakes in a pot to increase his chip lead.

Back and Forth

EricRamsey
Limit Hold'em:

Jonathan Tamayo raises from the button, and both opponents call. The flop is {2-Diamonds} {8-Clubs} {J-Spades}. Gary checks, Binger bets, and Tamayo calls. Gary ducks out.

The turn brings the {3-Clubs} and the river is the {5-Hearts}. On both of those streets, Binger bet out and Tamayo called. Binger turned over {Q-Diamonds} {J-Hearts}, and Tamayo shrugged and tossed in his cards.

This three-way match has really developed into quite a horse race, as now everyone is hovering right around the 700,000 mark.

Sippin' On Champagne... A Little Early?

donpeters
Nick Binger's brother Michael, Michael's agent, and other friends ordered a couple bottles of champagne a little earlier. By time the bottles got to the stage area, Nick had lost his chip lead and is struggling to get his footing back. We don't know for sure if the champagne was in preparation for Binger's possible bracelet or if the spectators just wanted to sip the bubbly, but it could be the jinx keeping Binger from climbing.

Binger's railbirds can be seen with elegant glasses in their hands, filled with the light golden liquid, sipping away as they root on Nick.

A Few More Chips for Binger

EricRamsey
Limit Hold'em:

Nick Binger is on the button, and he comes in raising. Both Tamayo and Gary call. The flops shows up {3-Clubs} {K-Clubs} {9-Spades}. Action checks to the raiser, and Binger puts in a bet. Tamayo calls and Gary folds.

The turn is the {5-Clubs}, and the river is the {A-Spades}, with Tamayo check-calling a bet on both streets. After he puts in the river call, Binger tables {K-?} {3-?} for two pair, and takes down a much-needed pot here early in the level.

A Small Victory

EricRamsey
No-Limit Hold'em:

Frank Gary folds his button, and Nick Binger limps from the small blind. Jonathan Tamayo checks his option. The flop comes {3-Spades} {7-Spades} {5-Hearts}. Binger checks, and Tamayo bets 20,000. Binger calls.

The turn is the {Q-Clubs}. Binger leads out with a bet of 40,000 this time, and Tamayo calls.

The river brings the {K-Spades}, and both players check it down. After the action is complete, Binger turns over {K-Hearts} {8-Hearts}, and it's the winner. He drags in a nice little pot, and gets some of his chips back from his neighbor.
