Mark Gryglik Crippled, Eliminated in 15th Place ($11,288)

Mark Gryglik
Mark Gryglik

Mark Gryglik was down to around 30,000 when he lost most of that in a hand against Ron Burke. Gryglik raised and Bruke made it three bets preflop. Gryglik called, and the players took a flop of {2-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}. Gryglik checked, and Burke immediatley bet enough to put Gryglik all in. Gryglik had about 9,500, and thought for about a minute before reluctantly folding.

Two hands later, Gryglik put his last 9,500 in under the gun. Action folded to Andrew Brongo, who raised to 15,000. Everyone folded, and the two players were heads up.

Gryglik: {k-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}
Brongo: {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}

Brongo was in a dominating position that only became more dominant when the flop came {8-Spades}{a-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}. The {10-Clubs} on the turn brought very brief life, but the river was the {5-Hearts}, and Gryglik was eliminated. Brongo is up to about 200,000 after the hand.

Ramdin Gets Coolered Again

Earlier we reported that Victor Ramdin lost some chips when his turned straight ran into his opponents quads. Well Ramdin has just lost another big pot at the hands of an even sicker cooler. Ramdin raised preflop, and got two callers, Ron Burke on the button and Andrew Brongo in the big blind. The flop came {j-Hearts}{7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}, and Ramdin bet. Burke was the only caller, and both players checked the turn, the {5-Hearts}. The river came the {7-Clubs}, and the fireworks began. Ramdin bet, and Burke raised. Ramdin then reraised, and Burke capped it! Ramdin called and flipped up {a-Hearts}{a-Spades} for a full house, but Burke showed {j-Spades}{j-Clubs} for a better full house! Burke shipped the pot, and Ramdin is knocked down to around 120,000.

We missed the action while we were writing up the previous two bustouts but when we returned, we found Sorel Mizzi’s seat empty. We know that the board was {8-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{K-Diamonds} and according to Victor Ramdin, there were three players in the pot. In the end, Leo Labbe was the beneficiary with {J-}{6-} over Mizzi’s {3-}{3-},

Leo Labbe limped in under the gun and action folded around to Andrew Brongo in the small blind. He called, and Matthew Suelflow checked his option. The flop came {2-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{6-Spades}, and Suelflow bet. Labbe raised, and Suelflow called. The turn brought the {3-Hearts}, and Suelflow once again led out for 12,000. Labbe just called this time, and the river came the {10-Spades}. Suelflow bet his last 11,000, and Labbe beat him into the pot. Suelflow showed just a {4-Clubs}{2-Spades} for a pair of twos, and Labbe rolled over {k-Clubs}{q-Spades} for top pair. Suelflow was elimianted, and Labbe upped his stack to 168,000.

Alexander Keating Eliminated in 18th Place ($8,850)

On the first hand of play, Jeff Shulman raised from the hijack and Alexander Keating made it three bets from the small blind. Shulman called as the players saw a {K-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{2-Spades} flop and Keating led out. Shulman made the call and Keating led out again when the {9-Diamonds} hit the turn. Shulman came back with a raise this time which Keating just called. On the {2-Clubs} river, Keating check-called Shulman’s bet.

Shulman showed {K-Diamonds}{K-Spades} for the nut boat while Keating threw over {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts} in what was a pretty sick hand to start the day to cripple Keating.

Two hands later, Dmitry Gromov raised in early position and Keating three-bet him on the button leaving himself with only 100 behind. Gromov just called but put Keating all in on the {7-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{3-Spades} flop. Keating made the call and was in the lead with {A-Spades}{6-Spades} against the {J-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} of Gromov. The {9-Spades} on the turn was safe for Keating and gave him a flush draw but the river was an offsuit {J-Diamonds} to give Gromov two pair and eliminated Keating.

Brongo Doubles Early With Quads

Andrew Brongo made it two bets and Victor Ramdin made it three bets on the button. Brongo called, and the flop came {j-Spades}{a-Clubs}{j-Hearts}. Brongo check called a bet from Ramdin, and the players took the {10-Hearts} on the turn. Brongo check raised, and Ramdin reraised to get Brongo's last chips in there.

Brongo: {j-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}
Ramdin: {k-Clubs}{q-Spades}

Ramdin turned the straight, but it was meaningless as Brongo had flopped quads. The river came the {8-Diamonds}, and Brongo doubled up to 81,000, while Ramdin dropped to around 210,000.
