Hanneman Holds On


The action has slowed to a crawl recently, and its with no thanks to Devin Hanneman who is currently the short stack of the field, and happily blinding down, hoping perhaps to jump a pay bracket.

"Go home short stack..." joked Mark Johns, "...and stop ruining our game!"

"I'm waiting to be rolled up..." replied Hanneman, "...or better!"

Hanneman currently has about 10,000 in chips, which is only good for about seven more antes!

Reslock Scoooooooops



Reslock: X-X / {5-Hearts} {9-Hearts} {k-Hearts} {4-Hearts} / X
Phillips: X-X / {2-Hearts} {a-Clubs} {k-Diamonds} {4-Spades} / X
Lisandro: X-X / {7-Hearts} {6-Clubs} {3-Hearts} {5-Diamonds} / X

Ming Reslock has a very healthy stack after scooping a three-way hand of stud hi/lo. Dale Phillips had the betting lead on every street, and checked it each time. Jeff Lisandro bet fourth and fifth streets and was called by Reslock and Phillips. On sixth street, Lisandro also checked to Reslock's four-heart board. She bet and was called by Phillips and Lisandro.

Both men checked the river to Reslock, who again fired a bet. Phillips folded, but Lisandro called, perhaps just hoping to win half. He got nothing when Reslock turned up {6-Hearts} {2-Diamonds} {3-Clubs} for a 6-5 low and a heart flush.

Reslock now has 165,000.

Mozdzen Super Short



We caught up to Clayton Mozdzen on the turn of a {q-Spades} {9-Hearts} {3-Clubs} {5-Diamonds}. He checked from the small blind to button player Charles Wey, who bet. Mozdzen then check-raised, with Wey calling.

Mozdzen fired a bet on the {5-Spades} river. Wey sighed but made the call, and a good call it was. Mozdzen showed a busted draw, {j-Hearts} {10-Hearts}. Wey took down the pot with top pair, {q-Hearts} {8-Clubs}.

Mozdzen now has only 19,000 in chips.

Here Comes Ivey!



David Baker raised the button and Phil Ivey made the call in the big blind. They saw a flop of {3-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{A-Clubs} and Ivey checked to Baker who fired a bet. Ivey made the call.

The turn was the {2-Clubs} and this time Ivey led out with a bet. Baker made the call. The same sequence went down on the {2-Spades} river as Ivey showed {5-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{4-Diamonds} for the wheel which was good for the high and the low.

Baker mucked and Ivey scooped to move up to 229,000, with Baker back down to 205,000.

Steve Sung Eliminated

Steve Sung - eliminated
Steve Sung - eliminated


Steve Sung has been perilously short-stacked for the better part of an hour. On a board of {7-Hearts} {10-Clubs} {4-Clubs} {j-Spades}, Scott Siever checked to Sung. Sung bet and was raised by chip leader Ryan Hughes. Seiver called the raise cold and Sung also called all in. When the river fell {k-Clubs}, Seiver check-folded to a single bet from Hughes.

At showdown, Hughes tabled the nuts, {a-Clubs} {2-Clubs} {j-Clubs} {7-Diamonds}. Sung mucked and was off to get paid.

Hourani Out as Aldridge Scoops With Aces



Clayton Mozdzen was the bring-in, with Adam Hourani completing. Kenneth Aldridge, Zachary Milchman and Mozdzen all made the call.

On fourth street, Hourani was all in for his last chips with Aldridge and Milchman calling as Mozdzen stepped aside.

Aldridge led out with a bet on fifth, with Milchman calling, before the roles were reversed on sixth. On the river the two live players decided that a check was correct and the cards were tabled.

Mozdzen: (X-X) / {3-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}
Hourani: (X-X-X) / {Q-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}{5-Spades}{2-Clubs}
Aldridge: ({A-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{4-Spades}) / {3-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{A-Spades}
Milchman: ({7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}) / {5-Hearts}{A-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{K-Hearts}

When all was said and done, no one could show a low and Aldridge's pair of aces was good enough for the high. He scooped the monster pot to move up to 180,000 with Milchman back to 95,000 and Hourani on the rail.

Juanda Razzes Bonyadi



Juanda: X-X / 6-2-5-5 / X
Bonyadi: X-X / 7-2-A-J / X

John Juanda's been quietly building a stack all day. He played a recent hand of razz against Farzad Bonyadi and took it down uncontested. Juanda completed third street, bet fourth street and bet fifth street, with Bonyadi calling each time. On sixth street, Bonyadi took over the betting lead when Juanda paired fives. Both players checked to the river.

At the river, Bonyadi checked again. Juanda, ever aggressive, fired out a bet. Bonyadi tanked for about forty seconds before finally folidng his hand.

Hourani Sinking



Hourani: X-X / {k-Clubs} {3-Diamonds} {5-Spades} {a-Spades} / X
Aldridge: X-X / {a-Diamonds} {2-Spades} {4-Clubs} {3-Hearts} / X

The decisions are becoming weightier and weightier as we push deeper into the money. Short-stacked Adam Hourani faced a big one in a pot against Kenneth Aldridge. Hourani checked sixth street and called a bet from Aldridge. On seventh street, Hourani checked again and Aldridge bet again. Hourani tanked for about a minute before making the call, leaving himself only 26,000 behind. Aldridge opened {a-Hearts} {3-Spades} {3-Clubs} for a full house, treys full of aces. It was good.
