He's still not here.... but All-American Dave did just deliver food to his empty chair. C'mon Victor, your food is getting cold and stack is getting shorter!

Where's Victor?

BenLudlow • Level 1: 400-800, 0 ante

15 minutes into Level 1 and all but two players have sat down at their tables to start Day 2.

Those players are Iakov Nepomnyashchiy and Team PokerStars Pro (USA) Victor Ramdin. We'll let you know when our "fashionably late" players arrive, and since they haven't started with super deep stacks, for their sakes we hope that it's soon

Lubarsky Wins One Early

[user198174] • Level 1: 400-800, 0 ante

We found Hal Lubarsky putting out a bet preflop, only to be raised by the player immediately on his left. Lubarsky made the call and both players saw {2-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} on the flop. Lubarsky checked and his opponent, Steven Hustoft bet out. Lubarsky called, and both players got to see a turn.

With the {8-Clubs} on fourth street Lubarsky again check-called a bet from Hustoft. After the {8-Spades} spiked on the river we saw a repeat of action with Lubarsky check-calling another bet. Cards were then shown, and it was Lubarsky's {A-}{10-} pair of tens that was awarded the pot after Hustoft was only able to manage {A-}{K-} for ace high.

Five Bet Aggro Chop

Paul_Oresteen • Level 1: 400-800, 0 ante

Ivo Donev and Alexander Dovzhenko just played a hand where they five bet capped every street but the river. The board read {9-Hearts} {6-Spades} {7-Clubs} {2-Diamonds} {10-Clubs} and when it was all said and done Donev tabled the two red aces and Dovzhenko tabled the two black ones.

They chopped the pot, shook hands and complimented each other on how well they played their hands.
