Skommo Dispatches One

MrCleverFox • Level 18: 3,000-6,000, 500 ante

On a board of {10-Hearts}{3-Spades}{2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} we saw Orjan Skommo make a bet and get called by another player.

The river dropped the {J-Diamonds} and that player moved all in against Skommo. Skommo snap called and tabled {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs} which was good against the players {4-Spades}{5-Hearts}.

With that Skommo has moved up the chip counts and one more has left the tournament.

We didn't catch all the action but Michael Katz was kind enough to inform us how Warwick Mirzikinian was eliminated just before break. Apparently Mirzikinian got it all in against another play on a flop of {K-}{K-}{2-} with {A-}{K-} against the other players {2-}{2-}. The board bricked out and the other player had a covering stack on Mirzikinian, eliminating him from the tournament.

The other player's name is Matthias Bednarek. After that massive hand, he has advanced to the top of the chip counts, while Mirzikinian was just left with a payout slip.

Barry Hutter is Trying to Reclaim the Chip Lead He Held After Day 1

We saw Ira Basil stand to make his exit from the tournament floor, while his entire stack was shipped across the table to Day 1 chip leader Barry Hutter.

The affable Canadian was kind enough to fill us in on the details of his bustout hand, one which had the table gasping when it was all said and done.

Apparently, Basil limped into the pot and watched as Hutter raised it up. Basil elected to make a three-bet and put the pressure back on Hutter, and Hutter simply moved all in to force Basil to the ultimate test.

When Basil snap-called, Hutter was sure his {10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} was trailing a premium hand, but surprisingly Basil tabled the {K-Spades}{6-Spades}.

Although the board ran out {j-}{7-}{5-}{6-} by the turn, giving Hutter a bit of a sweat, the river came clean and Basiil was eliminated in stunning fashion.

"I'm just shocked..." Hutter answered, after the dealer asked him to verify his count. "I don't know why he did that, I haven't gotten out of line all day."

Bazeley Gets Two Outered For The Chip Lead

MrCleverFox • Level 17: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

When we caught up with Jacob Bazeley he was involved in a pot with Christopher Kozlowski. The two got their money in on a board of {3-Spades}{2-Hearts}{9-Hearts}. Kozlowski was holding {6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} against Bazeley's {A-}{9-}. It looked great for Bazeley who was just two cards away from grabbing up the chip lead.

The turn came the {7-Clubs} keeping Bazeley in the lead. The dealer grabbed the last card, burned it, then put out the {6-Clubs} on the river, changing the entire outcome of the hand and giving Kozlowski the two outer he needed to survive and double up.

Bazeley had a big stack, so he is still alive with plenty of chips, but very frustratedly he picked up the {6-Clubs} off the table and checked it for marks before shipping the chips over to Kozlowski.

"I thought you had two overs," Kozlowski said after the hand.

"Good read," Bazeley said chuckling.

"No," Kozlowski said. "It was a horrible read."

Good read or not Kozlowski has jumped far up the chip counts.

Not The Right Bord

MrCleverFox • Level 17: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

In a recent hand Brian Bord, who happens to be the uncle of former World Series of Poker Europe Main Event Winner James Bord, was crippled by Thomas Hall.

We caught up to the hand on a board of {K-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{4-Hearts}. Bord had led with a bet of 14,000. In position Hall reraised to 36,000. Bord just called.

The turn came the {K-Diamonds} and Bord moved all in. Hall called all in with a shorter stack and the two men tabled their hands.

Hall: {K-Hearts}{6-Hearts}
Bord: {K-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}

Bord was in the lead, but Hall had many outs to either a chop or a scoop with any six, any heart or a board pair.

The dealer burned and put down the {5-Hearts} on the river, allowing Hall to nag a double up through Bord, while Bord was left with just around ten big blinds.

Bord was eliminated just a few hands later by Remi Subair.

Make That a Double

Jonathan_Zaun • Level 17: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante

Minutes after making a major move with {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}, Remi Subair is at it again, eliminating another player from the tournament after an all-in confrontation.

We heard Subair's call of "yes!" ring through the air, and it turns out his {K-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} prevailed against an opponent's {K-}{J-} after the board ran out {k-Spades}{4-Spades}{10-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}.

With the successive wins, Subair has moved above the 200,000 chip mark, and he is emerging as a force to be reckoned with midway through the day.

Mirzikinian and Nassif Decide to Chop One

Gabriel Nassif

We caught up with Gabriel Nassif and Warwick Mirzikinian on a flop of {K-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{8-Clubs} where Nassif had checked to Mirzikinian. Mirzikinian fired off a bet of 20,000 that Nassif called.

The turn brought the {10-Hearts} and both players checked to see the {9-Hearts} on the river. On the river, Nassif checked to Mirzikinian again and Mirzikinian shot off a bet of 30,000. Nassif called instantly.

Mirzikinian turned up {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} for a straight but Nassif turned up {K-Spades}{Q-Clubs} for the same straight.

"I couldn't decide if you had it preflop or not," Nassif said after the hand. "I guess I made a bad read."

Either way, it worked out for both of them and they chopped the pot.
