How the Action is Going

There hasn't been too much crazy action going on in the back corner of the Amazon room for the end of this Seniors Event. In fact, play has been really slow. The players are taking their time about each and every decision, trying not to falter even the tiniest bit.

Flops and other community cards have been scarce. Oftentimes, a simple raise and/or reraise is enough to take down a pot somewhat uncontested preflop.

Michael Davis Doubles Up

Michael Davis moved all in and got called by Art Duncan.

Davis: {A-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}
Duncan: {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}

Duncan held the lead all the way to the river on a board of {J-Clubs}{10-Spades}{2-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}, but lost to a three-outer when Davis spiked the {3-Clubs}. After the hand, Davis was up to 646,000 while Duncan slipped to 170,000.

I Told You So

After Tom Thomas' bust out, Scott Buller looked over to his buddies on the rail and said, "Remember what I told you yesterday. He wouldn't make the final table."

Thomas was the chip leader coming into today, but fell a few spots out of the final table. Buller then looked to the tournament director and continued.

"I told you he wouldn't make it. He kept calling with king eight and king seven, you can't win like that."

"Maybe the money doesn't mean anything to him." responded the T.D.

"To some people it don't, but you should still want to play it out for the game if you love the game." finished Buller.

Buller's Tens Sucked Out On

Richard McCall raised to 100,000 from middle position. Scott Buller asked for a count on the raise amount and then announced that he was all in. When action got back to McCall, he made the call, saying "All right, let's go. You got me now, but let's go."

Buller then tabled pocket tens and McCall showed two overs with {K-Clubs} {Q-Clubs}.

The flop was clear for Buller, {6-Spades} {5-Hearts} {5-Clubs}. The turn brought the {A-Clubs} to give McCall a flush draw. The river was the {3-Clubs} and completed McCall's flush.

After counting out the chips and sending them over, Buller just sat with an emotionless face.

"It doesn't even look like any chips are gone." said Ted Garner pertaining to how big Buller's stack is.

"That's the difference between you and me, I can see that they're gone." responded Buller.

Garshofsky Doubles Up

In a three way limped pot, Art Duncan bet 100,000 on a flop of {3-Spades}{6-Spades}{7-Clubs}. Action moved back to Mitch Garshofsky who check-raised all in for an additional 54,000.

Duncan: {8-Spades}{6-Hearts}
Garshofsky: {5-Hearts}{4-Hearts}

The board finished {10-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}, and Garshofsky doubled to 310,000.

Beck Doubles With Suited Connectors

Richard McCall limped in from the cutoff seat and then Robert Beck raised all in for 161,000 total. The big blind, Barry Bounds made the call before McCall got out of the way. Bounds tabled {A-Spades} {K-Hearts} and Beck held {7-Spades} {6-Spades}.

The flop was huge for Beck when it came {8-Clubs} {7-Clubs} {7-Hearts}. The turn was the {Q-Diamonds} and the river the {4-Hearts}. Beck earned the double up to over 350,000.
