Gill Fills Up Double


On a {A-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} flop we found the action checked to Farzad Bonyadi who fired out 20,000.

Dana Gill check-raised all in for 75,500 and Greg Dyer made the call before Bonyadi kicked his cards to the muck.

Gill: {5-Spades}{4-Spades}
Dyer: {A-Hearts}{J-Hearts}

With Gill in the lead, the {5-Clubs} on the turn, followed by the {J-Clubs} on the river would see his two-pair best Dyer's aces-up as they both moved to relatively equal chip stacks of 220,000.

Aces-Up for Bonyadi Stacks Molson

[user80015] • Level 19: 3,000-6,000, 500 ante

Will Molson was all in for his last 14,500 with both Farzad Bonyadi and Dana Gill making the call from the button and big blind respectively.

Gill fired out 14,000 on the {A-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} flop with Bonyadi making the call as the {7-Clubs} landed on the turn. Gill however would take a more passive route by check-folding to a 35,000-chip Bonyadi bet.

Molson: {Q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}
Bonyadi: {A-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}

The river landed the {K-Clubs} and Molson was forced to hit the rail as Bonyadi climbs to 255,000 in chips.

Little Surges with Flopped Set

[user80015] • Level 19: 3,000-6,000, 500 ante

With around 60,000 in the pot and the flop reading {Q-Hearts}{5-Spades}{10-Hearts} Jonathan Little managed to get what remained of roughly his 180,000-chip stack into the middle against Will Molson.

Little: {5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}
Molson: {A-Hearts}{6-Hearts}

The turn and river landed running eights with the {8-Diamonds} and {8-Clubs} to see Little move to 435,000 as Molson is crippled to 14,000 in chips.

Sergey Makes a Straight


On a board reading {9-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{10-Clubs}, Michael Hahn led out for 26,500 from the big blind. Sergey Rybachenko called from the button to see a river.

The river came the {7-Spades}, slowing down Hahn, who checked. Rybachenko bet a paltry 28,000 and Hahn couldn't resist the odds to make a call. Rybachenko flipped over the {K-Hearts}{J-Diamonds} for a straight and Hahn mucked his hand.
