Table 28 Hijinks

"Man, you should have been over here earlier, PokerNews," said a player on Table 28. "We got people bustin' left and right, three-way all ins, callin' the floor ... Barry Shulman almost flipped the table!"

The chuckles all round dissipated when the cards were dealt out and the action folded to Shulman, who limped in from the hijack before the player on the button raised to 150. Daniel Neilson called from the small blind and the big blind folded to make it heads up to a flop of {6-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}.

Neilson and Shulman checked to the button, who led out for 200, but Neilson came back with a check-raise, making it 575 to go. Shulman and the button folded and Neilson picked up the pot.

Affleck Gifted Some Early

We caught up to the action to find Matt Affleck, Scott Montgomery, and two others see a flop of {Q-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{10-Spades}. After everyone checked it was the cutoff who bet 500. Only Affleck was willing to make the call.

On the {4-Hearts} turn Affleck moved all in for 1,900 and was called by the cutoff. Affleck held {A-Spades}{Q-Spades} and was way ahead of his opponent's {3-Clubs}{3-Spades}.

The river {6-Hearts} rolled off the deck, giving Affleck's trip queens the win.

Selbst Slips

The action folded around to Vanessa Selbst, who raised to 150 from middle position preflop. An opponent called from the hijack and the others got out of the way before Selbst bet 250 at the flop of {10-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}.

The hijack called, then both players checked the turn of the {5-Hearts} before Selbst check-folded on the {a-Spades} river.

Still A Line At Registration

The massive line for registration has shortened considerably. Checking with a few people in line, they said they've spent about 45 minutes waiting. They seemed in good spirits and said the line is moving quickly.
