And Ivey Gets Them Back

Happy_Freaked

In two hands Phil Ivey just got some chips back as he's now back up to 1.36 million. From the small blind Ivey raised it up and Scotty Nguyen defended his big blind. The flop came down {A-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} and Ivey bet, Nguyen called.

The turn, the {10-Diamonds}, got checked by both players and the river was the {J-Spades}. Ivey put in another bet and Nguyen followed with the call. Ivey tabled {5-Spades}{4-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} and raked in this pot.

The very next hand Ivey raised it up from the button and Meng La called from the big blind. The flop came down {Q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{9-Spades} and La check-raised Ivey who followed with the call.

On the turn and river, the {5-Diamonds} and {6-Spades}, Ivey check-called 50,000 chip bets and La mucked when he got shown {A-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}{7-Spades}. Ivey is back up there while La is now really short once again.

Meng La Stays in There

Meng La

Meng La is experiencing some serious swings as he was just almost knocked out but found a way to stay in the game. First La raised from the button and Ivey called from the big blind.

The flop came down {J-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} and Ivey lead out. La called and the turn was the {3-Diamonds}. La called another bet and the river brought out the {5-Diamonds}. This time La folded when Ivey threw ou another 50,000 and he was left with just 49,000 chips.

On the very next hand La was all in. He put his final chips at risk from the under the gun position and both Nguyen and Ivey called. On a {a-Hearts}{3-Spades}{2-Spades}{8-Clubs}{10-Hearts} board the hand got checked down and Ivey showed {4-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{Jc]{9-Hearts} for the low. La tabled {J-Hearts}{9-Spades}{A-Spades}{5-Diamonds} for the high and they chopped the pot.

On the third hand La got his 74,000 chips into the pot and was up against Ivey in search for a double up.

Ivey showed {K-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{3-Hearts} and he lost against {a-Spades}{Q-Hearts}{9-Spades}{6-Diamonds} when the board ran out {A-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{2-Spades}{8-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}. We are still four handed while La remains with the short stack.

La Crippled

Happy_Freaked

From the button Scotty Nguyen just raised it up and Meng La three-bet from the small blind. Nguyen called and the flop came down {A-Clubs}{10-Spades}{8-Hearts}. La bet 25,000 and Nguyen followed with the call. On the turn the {3-Spades} hit and Nguyen called a 50,000 chip bet.

The river was the {5-Clubs} and this time La check-called a bet. Nguyen turned over {J-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} and scooped the pot with a wheel. La is now really short and in need of a quick double up.

Two For Cassidy

Happy_Freaked

Meng La was first to act, and made it two bets. Joe Cassidy called on the button, and Scotty Nguyen defended his big blind. The dealer fanned {k-Spades}{7-Spades}{7-Clubs}, and Nguyen checked. La continued, Cassidy raised, and both Nguyen and La released.

A few hands later, Cassidy raised out of the small blind, and his neighbor Phil Ivey called. The flop was {q-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}, and Cassidy check-called a bet. The {9-Hearts} turned, and Cassidy checked again. Ivey bet, and this time, Cassidy check-raised. Ivey called.

The {8-Hearts} completed the board, and Cassidy led out for the first time. Ivey called, then mucked when Cassidy tabled {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{4-Hearts}.
