Event #13: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout


Homer • Level 9: 600-1,200, 200 ante

Neither of our two matches seems to be close to finishing right now, both seem to be suffering from a lack of aggression.

Simon Outdrawn Again

Homer • Level 9: 600-1,200, 200 ante

Sam Simon can't beat his opponent. Earlier he lost with {A-}{J-} to {A-}{5-} when a five came on the river and just now he limp-called the shove with {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds} against {A-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} only for the board to come {J-Hearts}{4-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}.

"Oh my God," said a stunned Simon as he failed to win from a virtual lock position for a second time.

Homer • Level 9: 600-1,200, 200 ante

We have four players left to whittle down to two. Sam Simon, co-creator of the Simpsons is one of the remain four and chewing on the fattest cigar ever.

The English Are Coming, The English Are Coming!!

English had {6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} and his opponent had {a-Diamonds}{q-Spades}. The board ran out king high, and English won the hand and the table.
