Chop Chop in First Hand after Dinner

[user197301] • Level 24


Aaron Steury raised to 40,000 before the flop and Paolo Compagno made the call. The dealer flopped {A-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} and Steury led out for 20,000. Compagno raised to 40,000 and and Steury made the call, bringing the {A-Spades} on the turn.

Steury slowed down on the turn and checked it to Compagno, who fired 40,000 into the middle. This bet was called by Steury and the dealer revealed the {5-Spades} on the river. Steury bet his last 3,000 and was all in for his tournament life after the Italian native made the call.


Steury: {2-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{6-Hearts}
Compagno: {A-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}

Steury's low of 7-5-3-2-A was good for the low half and Compagno's trip aces took the high half for a chopped pot.

Victor Ramdin Eliminated in 9th Place ($18,577)

[user197301] • Level 24


From under the gun, a short stacked Victor Ramdin made it 40,000 to go, effectively committing himself to this hand. Both Jonathan Tamayo and Denis Ethier made the call and we saw a flop of {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}.

Ramdin checked his action and Tamayo fired out a bet of 20,000. Ethier mucked his cards and Ramdin check-raised to 40,000, placing his last chips into the middle. Tamayo made the call to put the Team PokerStars Pro at risk.


Ramdin: {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{2-Spades}
Tamayo: {A-Spades}{3-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{Q-Spades}

Ramdin's pair of eights were crushed by Tamayo's flopped trip sevens and he would need to spike an eight in order to claim the high half of the pot. After the {5-Clubs} fell on the turn, Ramdin added a low draw to his slim chances. He would need to catch a four or a six in order to claim the low half of the pot, or an eight for the scoop.

River: {5-Spades}

With that, Tamayo filled up and Ramdin hit the rail in ninth place, earning $18,577 for his efforts.

Sarah caught up with Victor just before the final table.

Tristan Clemencon Eliminated in 10th Place ($18,577)

Tristan Clemencon - 10th Place
Tristan Clemencon - 10th Place


Tristan Clemencon was apparently unable to parlay his double up in the last update into any momentum and after Michael Chow raised to 40,000, the Frenchman decided to go all in blind for his last 60,000. David Baker came along as well and Clemencon would have to defeat two opponents in order to remain in the tournament.


Chow: {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}
Baker: {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{3-Spades}
Clemencon: {7-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{4-Spades}

The final board rained down {5-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} and Chow's top-two pair, aces and kings, were best after it was all said and done, besting Clemencon's smaller two pair. The Frenchman was eliminated in 10th place and will pocket $18,577 for his efforts.

Clemencon Drops the Guillotine on Ramdin to Double

Tristan Clemencon (Day 2) Of France Slices Victor Ramdin's Stack
Tristan Clemencon (Day 2) Of France Slices Victor Ramdin's Stack


Victor Ramdin made it 40,000 to go before the flop and Tristan Clemencon three-bet to 60,000. Ramdin decided to four-bet, making it 80,000 to go and the Frenchman threw his last chips into the pot.


Clemencon: {10-Spades}{6-Clubs}
Ramdin: {Q-Clubs}{8-Spades}

Clemencon would need to come from behind in order to survive his all-in confrontation.

The flop rolled out {J-Spades}{6-Hearts}{8-Clubs} and Clemencon had paired his six, but was still trailing the paired eight of Ramdin. The turn card brought the {9-Spades} and Clemencon picked up an open-ended straight draw, meaning he could now catch a queen, a seven, or a six for the double up. Pairing his ten would be no good as this would give Ramdin a straight.

River: {Q-Spades}

Ramdin's second pair gave the Frenchman a queen-high straight and Clemencon doubled up to approximately 260,000 in chips, while Ramdin fell to 240,000.
