Andy in the Black

[user197301] • Level 3

Stud:

We caught up with the action as former WSOP Main Event final tablist Andy Black was involved in a hand against two opponents.

Black: (X)(X) - {K-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{2-Spades}
Opponent # 1: (X)(X) - {A-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{7-Hearts}
Opponent # 2: (X)(X) - {K-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{8-Clubs}

Opponent # 1 bet of 200 chips on fourth street and Black made the call, as did opponent # 2. Fifth and sixth streets were checked around and when the players received their down cards on seventh street, Black led out with a bet of 200. Opponent # 1 decided to keep Black honest and made the call, but mucked his cards when Black revealed the {A-Spades}{10-Spades}{3-Spades} for the nut flush.

Durrrr's Straight Downed By Boat

Tom Dwan from an earlier event
Tom Dwan from an earlier event

Stud:

We caught the action as Tom "durrrr" Dwan and two opponents were involved in a hand of seven card stud.

Dwan: (X)(X) - {7-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{8-Clubs}
Opponent # 1: (X)(X) - {7-Spades}{6-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{K-Hearts}
Opponent # 2: (X)(X) - {A-Hearts}{5-Spades}{J-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}

Dwan had raised a bet of 150 to 300 on fourth street and both players came along for the ride. The players all checked fifth and sixth streets, but the action heated up after the players received their last down card. The action checked to Dwan and he fired 150 into the middle. Opponent # 1 decided to check-raise, making it 300 to go and Opponent # 2 made the call.

With four cards to a straight showing, Dwan three-bet to 450 and both opponent's called. Opponent # 2, who declined to give us his name, flipped up his {A-Hearts}{A-Spades}{4-} for a winning full house. Apparently accustomed to shipping "durrrr" piles of chips, the dealer slid the pot towards Dwan, who graciously pointed out that his straight had been beaten.

Clements Scooped By Bellande and One Other

donpeters • Level 2

Omaha-8:

Jean-Robert Bellande, Scott Clements and a third player went to the flop of {Q-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{8-Clubs} after the action was capped preflop. Bellande was acting from the big blind, Clements in middle position and the third player on the button. On the flop, Bellande was first and checked. Clements bet, the button called, then Bellande raised. Clements and the button both called.

The turn was the {7-Hearts} and Bellande checked. Clements bet, the button called and then Bellande raised. Sound familiar? This time Clements didn't just call though. He raised and the button called. Bellande reraised, Clements capped it and the button called. Bellande also called.

The river was a {5-} and Bellande checked. Clements bet, the button called and Bellande called, opting not to check-raise for the third street in a row. Here's what the hands were.

Bellande: {Q-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{7-Clubs}
Clements: {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{3-Clubs}
Button: {A-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}

Bellande's queens full of sevens was the winner of the high half of the pot while the button took the low with his {A-}{2-}. Clements held a second-best low and second-best high to both of his opponents and got scooped. He dropped to 2,100 while Bellande's half of the pot put him up to 6,000.

Schwartz Doubles Back

donpeters • Level 2

Razz:

Ylon Schwartz: (X)(X) - {8-}{5-}{5-}{6-} - (X)
Opponent: (X)(X) - {8-Hearts}{9-}{7-}{K-} - (X)

Ylon Schwartz was short to start the hand and all in on sixth street. When the hands were opened on the end, Schwartz tabled {A-}{7-}{2-} to make a seven-six low and beat his opponent's {A-}{K-}{3-} for a nine-eight low.

Schwartz is back to 1,200 in chips now.

"Minneapolis" Jim Meehan Making Moves

[user197301] • Level 2

Former WSOP bracelet winner "Minneapolis" Jim Meehan was spotted engaging in quite a colorful conversation with fellow players and a floorman. Apparently, Meehan wanted to know whether "cold cocking another guy at the table" would mean sitting out a round, or would result merely in a one hand penalty. The question pertained to a previous tournament and Meehan's tablemates today were obviously enjoying the banter.

As far as the action on the felt is concerned, Meehan is holding his own there as well. We watched as Minneapolis Jim bet on every round during a hand of Omaha-8 with the board reading {6-Spades}{10-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}. Meehan forced his opponents to fold by the river, but tabled {8-Hearts}{9-Clubs} for a rivered straight to take the pot uncontested.

Somerville Out

donpeters • Level 2

Stud-8:

Player 1: (X)(X) - {2-Hearts}
Jason Somerville: (X)(X) - {8-Clubs}{2-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{4-Spades} - (X)
Player 3: (X)(X) - {5-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}{A-Hearts} - (X)
Player 4: (X)(X) {Q-Clubs}{5-}{3-Spades}{Q-Spades} - (X)

After the player with the {2-Hearts} brought in, Jason Somerville completed the bet. The next player raised, the fourth player called, the bring in folded and then Somerville called.

On fourth street, a lot of betting and raising happened to get the action capped. The player in the middle, Player 3, never raised, he just kept calling while Somerville and Player 4 raised and reraised the action. On fifth street, everyone checked and then on sixth street, the player with a pair of queens up bet and both her opponents called.

After seventh street, the woman with two queens bet, Somerville raised, the player in the middle called and then the lady called. Somerville turned over the {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} from his hand for eights full of fours. The player in the middle mucked and then the woman who had two queens on board showed the {Q-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} from her down cards to reveal queens full of threes. She won the pot and knocked Somerville all the way down to just 250 in chips. Shortly thereafter, Somerville was eliminated from the tournament.
