Big Stumble for Binger

No-Limit Hold'em:

Frank Gary raises to 45,000 from the button. Nick Binger puts some thought into his reraise and then makes it 135,000 to go. Jonathan Tamayo folds and then Gary moves all in. Binger seems pained by this move and then decides he has to make the call, and does.

Binger is disgusted when Gary turns over {K-?} {K-?} and he holds {9-Clubs} {2-Clubs}.

The flop comes {8-Spades} {5-Hearts} {3-Clubs}, with a turn and river of the {3-Hearts} and {K-Diamonds} to follow.

Binger is now the short stack with 532,000 and this hand moves Gary up to 610,000.

"I Gotta Call"

No-Limit Hold'em:

Frank Gary folds his button, and Nick Binger limps from the small blind. Jonathan Tamayo raises it up, making it 51,000 to go. Binger calls.

The dealer spreads the flop: {6-Hearts} {A-Hearts} {4-Hearts}. Binger checks, and Tamayo bets 60,000. Binger calls.

The fourth card is the {J-Spades}. Both players check.

Fifth street comes the {10-Hearts}. Binger checks for the third time, and Tamayo bets 85,000. Binger says, "I gotta call," and he puts the chips in. Before he even has them counted out, Tamayo tables the nuts: {K-Hearts} {8-Spades}. His high flush earns him another big pot at the expense of Nick Binger.

Binger Coming Back

Limit Hold'em:

Nick Binger has the button, and he comes in raising. Jonathan Tamayo plays back, putting in a reraise. Binger re-pops it one more time, and Tamayo calls.

The flop is {Q-Spades} {6-Diamonds} {J-Clubs}. Tamayo check-calls a Binger bet.

The turn is the {8-Hearts}. Same action: check, bet, call -- both players acting very quickly.

The river is the {7-Spades}. Tamayo checks, and Binger bets a third time. Now Tamayo comes to a stop, as he purses his lips and stares at the board. After a minute, he does indeed fold.

With that sizable pot, Binger has re-taken the chip lead, and it comes in the middle of a stretch of five straight pots that he has dragged down.

Binger Gets Some Back

Limit Hold'em:

Frank Gary folds his button and Nick Binger raises from the small blind. Jonathan Tamayo calls out of the big blind. The flop comes {9-Clubs} {7-Clubs} {3-Diamonds} and Binger leads out. Tamayo calls.

The turn is the {9-Spades} and Binger checks. Tamayo bets and Binger calls.

The river is the {10-Hearts} and Binger checks. Tamayo bets again and Binger calls.

Binger shows {10-?} {8-?} and says "Ship it!" when he sees Tamayo flash {10-?} {6-?} and then slam his cards down.

Binger Slides Further

Limit Hold'em:

For the first time in recent memory, Frank Gary has gotten involved with Nick Binger deep into a pot and come out on top. Binger kicks things off with a raise on the button. Tamayo folds, and Gary puts in the call.

The flop comes {7-Spades} {3-Hearts} {6-Clubs}. Gary checks, Binger bets, and Gary calls.

The next card off is the {J-Spades}. Gary again checks, Binger keeps the lead with a bet, and Gary puts in a check-raise. Binger quickly calls.

Fifth street comes the {A-Spades}. Gary bets out, and Binger goes into the tank, shaking his head. After a few minutes, he slides his cards out from under his cap chip, and slides them into the muck.

Gary drags in a nice pot, and has chipped up to 446,000. Binger, meanwhile, has relinquished the chip led for the first time since the first level of today's action. He now sits with 793,000 and is trailing Jonathan Tamayo.
