Three to Pat for Seiver

mnuwwarah • Level 28: 50,000-100,000, 0 ante

A-5 Triple Draw

Scott Seiver opened button and Johannes Becker called out of the small blind. Becker took two and Seiver three, so Becker came out betting and Seiver called. Becker only snagged one against three, and he came out betting again. Seiver again called. On the final round, Becker took a card but Seiver patted.

Becker check-called the end and lost to eight-seven perfect.

Becker Bosses the Table

2-7 Triple Draw

It's a star-studded rail following the final encounter with Justin Bonomo and Dan Smith siding with Scott Seiver while Christoph Vogelsang rails Johannes Becker in the German booth.

Vogelsang has now more reasons to smile as Becker just won another pot against Seiver to pull further ahead.

Seiver drew two on the first draw in a hand of 2-7 Triple Draw and Becker took three. He fired a shell in position and Seiver called before discarding two. Becker drew one and fired again, getting a call again.

Seiver then changed one and Becker stood pat. Seiver checked one more time but finally gave up to Becker's final bet.

Becker Slowly Grinds It Up

Jan_Kores • Level 28: 50,000-100,000, 0 ante

A-5 Triple Draw

Johannes Becker is winning small but key pots and slowly increasing his stack. He's currently playing 1.2 million after a streak of hands against Scott Seiver which saw him claim a few bets.

Becker raised in A-5, then drew one on the first two draws and fired after both of them. Seiver called on both occasions, drawing two and one, respectively. Becker patted the last draw and Seiver took one again. The river was checked and Becker locked it up with {A-}{4-}{5-}{6-}{8-}.

Badugi

Scott Seiver raised on the button and Johannes Becker made it three bets in the small blind. Seiver called and took two, with Becker taking one.

Becker kept the lead and bet the next two rounds as each player drew one both times. On the end, it went check-check and Becker's {6-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{a-Diamonds} three-card was good for the pot.

He called a bet after the first draw and check-raised after the second. Becker called and snap-called one more bet on the final street.

A-5 Triple Draw

Jesse Hampton raised in the small blind and got action from Scott Seiver. Hampton took two and Seiver four. Hampton bet and Seiver called. Hampton patted and Seiver took two. This time, Seiver raised Hampton's bet. Hampton called and patted again. Seiver thought a bit.

"Stupid break," he said, throwing a card away.
