Mukul Pahuja Hanging Around

thehazyone • Level 8: 200-400, 50 ante

With two limps in front of him, Mukul Pahuja moved all in for 5,925 total. The blinds quickly folded and the two limpers joined in the folding frenzy as well. Pahuja, the World Poker Tour Player of the Year, is looking to add to his impressive year and add to the 8 WSOP cashes he already has.

Doing It Backwards

thehazyone • Level 7: 150-300, 50 ante

We walk by Tony Cousineau's table and he shares with us his Millionaire Maker double entry story. "I played the Razz until 3 am last night," he started.

"There was no way I was getting here at 11 am so I decided to skip Day 1a and got down here to play 1b. I busted out within the first hour. I was all set to go home when another player suggested I just late reg for Day 1a. I figured it was still 15 big blinds and with this prize pool it was worth a shot so here I am."

Cousineau has chipped up a bit since he sat down and if anyone knows how to grind a short stack, it's Cousineau.

Russell Thomas Outdrawn

thehazyone • Level 7: 150-300, 50 ante

We get to the table with approximately 9,000 in the pot and Russell Thomas all in on a {Q-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{8-Clubs} board. An older gentleman two seats to his left called and a player in the 10 seat tanked for a bit before folding {A-}{Q-} face up.

"You got me?" asked Thomas, as he turned over {K-Hearts}{K-Clubs}.

"Not yet," said his opponent, turning over {J-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}.

The turn was the {9-Diamonds} giving Thomas's opponent a straight and leading him to say "now I do."

Only a ten would save the day for the 2012 WSOP Main Event 4th place finisher but it was not to be as the river was the {6-Clubs}.

Koon Check-Raises the Turn

Jonathan_Zaun • Level 7: 150-300, 50 ante

Sitting in the big blind, pro Jason Koon watched a player in middle position raise the action to 600, and after engaging in a bit of banter, he decided to call and see a flop.

After the dealer fanned the {8-Hearts}{9-Spades}{3-Clubs} across the felt both players tapped the table, and when Koon saw the {k-Diamonds} fall on the turn he checked again.

"That's more you..." offered Koon at the sight of the cowboy.

The other player took the bait and fired out a bet of 600, but Koon quickly pumped it up to 2,600, the smile he had worn throughout the hand now long gone.

His opponent studied for a moment before taking the hint, and his cards went sailing into the muck,

We got to the table with the board showing {5-Clubs}{3-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and a short stacked Nick Guagenti all in for his last 2,400. His lone opponent tanked for a bit and then made the call. Guagenti turned over {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds} and was ahead of the {6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} his opponent held. He would have to fade the gut-shot straight draw or a 6 to stay alive. The turn was the {10-Hearts} and the river was the {J-Clubs} and the young pro scored the double up.

One is All He Needs

Jonathan_Zaun • Level 6: 100-200, 25 ante

With his stack shortened to just 2,150, and 200 of that already in for the big blind, Erik Seidel watched as fellow pro Adam Friedman opened the betting to 400.

When the action folded around to Seidel, he quickly pushed his remaining chips forward for the three-bet shove.

Friedman was pained by the spot he found himself in, and after shaking his head a bit and getting a count, he decided to lay down.

"I only looked at one..." offered Seidel as he dragged the small pot with a smile.

"You know, I had a feeling you did," replied Friedman. "Which is why I probably should've called."
