McGuiness Flushes Schwartz

John McGuiness raised from the small blind and Ylon Schwartz made the call from the big.

A flop of {J-Clubs}{9-Spades}{J-Diamonds} brought a 40,000 bet from McGuiness and raise to 80,000 from Schwartz. McGuiness put in a three bet and Schwartz put him all in. When the hands were shown, McGuiness' {Q-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} was ahead of Schwartz's {Q-Spades}{7-Hearts}.

That lead held as the turn and river came {6-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}, giving McGuiness the winning flush.

Barry Greenstein Eliminated in 5th Place ($57,671)

Barry Greenstein - 5th
Barry Greenstein - 5th
Ylon Schwartz raises preflop to 80,000 and Barry Greenstein calls all but about 30,000 of his remaining chips.

The flop is {K-Diamonds} {2-Hearts} {2-Spades} and Greenstein moves in with {8-Hearts} {6-Clubs}. Schwartz calls with {Q-Hearts} {Q-Diamonds}. The turn is the {10-Clubs}, the river is the {9-Clubs} and Greenstein is eliminated.

McGuiness Doubles Through Lopez

Lopez makes it 80,000 from the small blind and John McGuinnes makes it 120,000. Lopez makes the call.

The flop is {K-Clubs} {Q-Hearts} {10-Diamonds}. Lopez gets him all in with {A-Spades} {7-Diamonds} against {A-Hearts} {Q-Diamonds}. The turn is the {7-Hearts} which gives Lopez a chance to win the pot, but the river is the {4-Spades} and McGuiness doubles up.

Schwartz Wins Again

John McGuiness raised from the cutoff and Ylon Schwartz and Barry Greenstein both called.

A flop of {9-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{2-Spades} brought checks from Greenstein and McGuiness, a bet from Schwartz, a call from Greenstein and a fold from McGuiness.

Both remaining players checked the {6-Diamonds} on the turn and Greenstein bet 80,000 at the {A-Hearts} on the river and Schwartz called, showing the {8-Hearts}{9-Hearts} for a pair of nines, which was enough to take the pot when Greenstein folded.

Over to Limit

We're now playing 20k/40k blinds with 40k/80k limits

Another All In Move from Lopez

Barry Greenstein made it 60,000 to go from the button and Karlo Lopez moved all in from the small blind.

John McGuiness didn't like this development, as he stood up saying, "Oh my God. This is sick, sick, sick," before finally mucking his hand from the big blind. Greenstein folded with much fewer theatrics, and Lopez took the pot.

Lopez Shoves and Wins

Bahador Ahmadi raised to 62,000 from middle position and Karlo Lopez moved all in for an additional 236,000 from the button. Action folded back to Ahmadi, who tanked briefly before folding.

Greenstein Doubles Through McGuiness. Again.

John McGuiness raises to 60,000. Bahador Ahmadir flat-called and Barry Greenstein moved all in behind from the big blind for 154,000.

McGuiness moves all in for 479,000 total, but Ahmadir doesn't fold immediately. He thinks for a good couple of minutes before folding.

McGuiness shows {K-Hearts} {J-Hearts} and Greenstein holds {A-Diamonds} {10-Clubs}. The board comes {3-Hearts} {9-Clubs} {A-Clubs} {7-Diamonds} {6-Spades}.

Greenstein is back up to about 400,000.

All In = All Win for Ahmadi

Bahador Ahmadi made it 62,000 to go after the game had changed to No-Limit Hold'em. Karlos Lopez raised 162,000 more from the big blind.

Ahmadi responded by moving all in for an additional 360,000 or so and Lopez tanked for nearly two minutes before releasing his hand.
