Event #65: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em MAIN EVENT - World Championship

Set Over Set Sparks a Loud Cheer

ajlamers • Level 10: 800-1,600, 200 ante

A loud eruption in the Brasilia Bronze section from Robert Polanyi caught our attention. As we arrived at the table, the dealer was counting Polanyi's stack after the hand was complete. Three hands were still face up with the board reading {10-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{9-Hearts}.

One player already left his seat who was holding {k-Spades}{10-Clubs}, another player was left with around 2,500 chips holding {3-Spades}{3-Clubs}, and Polanyi tabled the best with {6-Spades}{6-Hearts} and he was the one receiving all of the chips. All of the chips got in the middle on the flop according to the table, and Polanyi's set of sixes proved to be victorious. He was all in for 138,700 and is now sitting on a stack over 330,000.

Cimbolas Shoves the River

Jan_Kores • Level 10: 800-1,600, 200 ante

In a five-way pot on the {2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{3-Spades} flop, Matas Cimbolas fired 1,500 in a middle position and his bet was raised to 4,000 by the player on the button. The rest of the players got out of the way and Cimbolas called.

The {7-Hearts} hit the felt on the turn and both players checked to see the {9-Hearts} river. Cimbolas moved all in for roughly 15,000, just about the size of the pot. His opponent let his cards go.

The action folded to Yevgeniy Timoshenko who raised it up on the button and was called by both the small and big blind. The flop came {3-Spades}{3-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} and both of the blinds checked to Timoshenko who bet 4,200. The small blind called while the big blind got out of the way.

The turn was the {2-Diamonds} and the small blind checked again. Timoshenko continued for another 14,000 and his opponent called. The river brought the {a-Diamonds} and the small blind led out this time for 15,000. Timoshenko quickly threw his cards away as he slipped below 200,000.

Volpe on the Rise

A player opened in middle position with a raise to 3,500 and Paul Volpe called on the button.

The flop was {Q-Spades}{9-Spades}{4-Hearts} and the middle position player led with a bet of 5,000. Volpe just called.

On the {9-Hearts} turn, the player led out again, betting 5,000 again. Volpe thought about it briefly then called again.

The river was the {8-Hearts} and the player bet 5,000 one more time. Volpe thought for a second then raised, making it 17,400 to go. The player thought himself for a bit then called. Volpe showed down his {J-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} and it was good for him to take down the pot as his opponent just had {Q-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}.

With that pot, Volpe moved to just under 270,000 chips.

Mateos is Missing

Adrian Mateos tweeted that he lost with ace-king suited against pocket aces and then missed a combo draw to join the rail in the last level of the night. On his former table, Giuliano Bendinelli was kind enough to provide the details for the last hand of the Spaniard.

According to Bendinelli, it was him that raised in the cutoff and Mateos called, as did Robert Kozik in the big blind. On a {A-}{Q-Hearts}{8-Hearts} flop, action checked to Bendinelli and his bet was called by both opponents. On the {6-Hearts} turn, Kozik and Bendinelli checked and Mateos moved all in for 31,000 into a pot of 29,000.

Kozik was the only caller with {A-}{10-} for top pair and Mateos missed out on a straight and flush draw with {K-Hearts}{J-} after a blank on the river.

Loncar Finds the Call Button to Double

mnuwwarah • Level 10: 800-1,600, 200 ante

A player under the gun was all in for about 55,000 and Michael Loncar was deep in the tank in middle position, having put in 15,000 with about 37,000 back. He thought for several minutes until someone finally called a clock. With seconds left, he announced a call.

Michael Loncar: {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}
Opponent: {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}

The {6-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{q-Clubs} flop left Loncar wanting but he got there right away on the {10-Spades} turn.

"There it is," he said triumphantly. "There it is."

The river was a {9-Spades} and Loncar collected nearly all of his opponent's chips. He thanked his tablemates for waiting so long to call a clock.

Some Small Hands in the Final Level

zedmaster84 • Level 10: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Matthew Klapstein has further increased his stack to become a contender for the overnight lead while Yueqi Zhu is catching up fast.

Jean Gaspard suffered a massive setback when his flopped flush with {6-Clubs}{2-Clubs} ended up second-best to the {A-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} for top pair of an opponent, because the turn and river paired the board twice to improve his opponent to a full house.

Bruno Politano raised to 4,000 and was called by one opponent on the button. On the {Q-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} flop, Politano's bet of 5,600 was raised to 12,700 and the Brazilian called before check-folding the {6-Hearts} turn to a bet worth 15,500.

One table over, Kristy Arnett raised to 4,000 and picked up three callers. The flop came {J-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{J-Hearts} and Arnett's shove went through without resistance.

Last but not least, Brendon O'Neal took on Will Kassouf and three-bet to 9,000 preflop. He made it 8,000 on the {J-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{2-Spades} flop and Kassouf called. On the {A-Spades} turn and {8-Clubs} river, both checked and O'Neal's {A-Clubs}{10-Clubs} won the pot.
