simkha • Level 27: 20,000-40,000, 0 ante

Action folded around to the blinds, Seth Zimmerman called from the small, and Rick Fuller checked his option.

The flop came {J-Clubs}{4-Spades}{4-Hearts} and Zimmerman bet 75,000. Fuller shoved and Zimmerman called with a covering stack.

Seth Zimmerman: {A-Spades}{J-Spades}{9-Clubs}{7-Clubs}
Rick Fuller: {Q-Clubs}{8-Spades}{5-Hearts}{4-Clubs}

Fuller had the lead with trips and Zimmerman needed to improve in order to stack him. The {10-Clubs} turn and {10-Hearts} river kept Fuller's hand best and he took the pot to double up.

Mats Rosen

Mats Rosen was in the small blind and got his stack in the middle before the flop against Maxime Heroux, who was in the cutoff and had him covered by a wide margin.

Mats Rosen: {Q-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{8-Spades}{7-Clubs}
Maxime Heroux: {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{5-Spades}

Heroux was ahead with his aces and Rosen needed help from the deck to survive. The board ran out {K-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{9-Hearts}{3-Spades}{2-Hearts}, which changed nothing, and Heroux took the pot to end Rosen's run in this event.

Trang Cracks Gordon's Aces in Brutal Fashion

Christopher Trang
Christopher Trang

Christopher Trang opened to 100,000 from under the gun with John Gordon quickly three-betting to 345,000. Trang then four-bet all in for 398,000 total with Gordon calling instantly.

Trang showed {K-Clubs}{K-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} drawing thin against Gordon's {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{J-Clubs}. The flop and turn of {Q-Hearts}{6-Spades}{8-Clubs}{J-Diamonds} had Trang one card away from elimination, yet the {5-Clubs} river fell to make Trang two pair against Gordon's aces and the near 800,000 chip pot was pushed to Trang leaving Gordon short stacked.

Rick Fuller opened to 100,000 from early position with Matthew Shepsky shoving all-in for about 90,000 total.

Shepsky's {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{10-Spades}{5-Clubs} was in bad shape against Fuller's {A-Spades}{A-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} as the two saw a board of {3-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{5-Hearts} laid out. Shepsky found life in the {K-Spades} turn needing to hold one more card to earn a double, but the river fell a {4-Diamonds} making Fuller a straight against Shepsky's set of kings and he walks away with a cash of $7,264.

Niklavs Zindulis got his {Q-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{10-Clubs} all in pre-flop against Jonathan Duhamel's {A-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} for his stack of 260,000.

The flop of {2-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{10-Spades} still held Duhamel in the lead. The {A-Spades} turn gave Duhamel top set and Zindulis a gutshot straight draw, however the river bricked on a {8-Clubs} and Zindulis is the latest to hit the payout cage in 17th.
