Check-Raise Works for Derosa


After Sidsel Boesen folded, Timmy Derosa raised to 75,000 from the small blind, and Vanessa Hellebuyck called from the BB.

The flop came {2-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}. Derosa checked, and Hellebuyck pushed forward a bet of 120,000. Derosa then announced she was reraising all in, and Hellebuyck quickly stepped aside.

Final table, three-handed

Players are back in their seats, and our three-handed final table has resumed.


Take Five


Our last three players are taking a quick 5-minute break here before we move on to Level 24.

Steady As She Goes


Aside from that one "Action Flop," we've mostly been seeing a sequence of raise-and-take it hands over the last three orbits. Hellebuyck has edged out a bit further with more than 1.7 million. Derosa is at about 900,000, and Boesen has slipped below 600,000.

Meanwhile, a short break has been called for at the end of this level, coming in just a couple of minutes.

Action Flop


After Timmi Derosa folded on the button, Vanessa Hellebuyck called from the small blind and Sidsel Boesen checked from the big.

The flop came out {5-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} and Hellebuyck bet out 80,000. Boesen raised 110,000 more and after thinking about it, Hellebuyck reraised an additional 125,000. Boesen mucked and Hellebuyck increased her chip lead while Boeson continued to slide.

Derosa Likes Diamonds


Sidsel Boesen opened for 55,000 from the small blind. "I call," said Timmi Derosa with a slight shrug from the big blind.

The flop came monotone -- {9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}. Boesen checked. Derosa liked the look of all those diamonds, or at least wasn't bothered by them, and unhesitatingly bet 100,000. Boesen thought a moment, then tossed her cards dealerward.

Derosa has edged ahead of Boesen into second place, but both are still well behind Vanessa Hellebuyck.

Sidsel Boesen opened with a raise to 50,000 from the button, Timmi Derosa folded, and Vanessa Hellebuyck called from the big blind.

The flop came {7-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}. Hellebuyck promptly bet 80,000, and after a half-minute of consideration Boesen raised to 210,000. Hellebuyck tanked for a couple of minutes, then let it go. Boesen climbs close to 1.1 million, while Hellebuyck is at a little over 1.4 million.

One for Boesen


Timmi Derosa folded from the button, and Vanessa Hellebuyck completed from the small blind. Sidsel Boesen then raised to 32,000 from the big blind, and Hellebuyck called.

The flop came {6-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{5-Spades}, and Hellebuyck checked. Boesen cut out a bet of 65,000, and Hellebuyck let it go.

Hellebuyck is still well out in front with more than 1.5 million, which represents almost half of the chips in play. Boesen is second with 880,000, and Derosa has 745,000.
