Robinson Check-Raises a Pot from Zedan

MartianNews • Level 31: 80,000-160,000, 0 ante

Luis Zedan opened from the hijack to 450,000 and Ryan Robinson called in the small. The dealer fanned out {9-Spades}{8-Clubs}{5-Clubs} and both players checked to the {8-Diamonds} turn card.

Robinson checked to Zedan, he fired in 475,000 and was quickly check-raised to 1,000,000 from Robinson. Zedan just as quickly threw his cards into the muck, sending the pot to Robinson.

Razavi Doubles Through Zedan

BrandonTemple • Level 31: 80,000-160,000, 0 ante

Luis Zedan raised to 400,000 from under the gun, then called when Sam Razavi three-bet shoved for 570,000 in the big blind.

Sam Razavi: {a-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{7-Spades}{2-Spades}
Luis Zedan: {k-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{5-Hearts}

Zedan hit two pair on the {q-Clubs}{5-Spades}{q-Diamonds} flop, but Razavi turned the tables when he made two pair of his own with the {8-Clubs} turn. The {q-Spades} river gave Razavi the winner with three queens, ace-eight high, and he bumped fists with Zedan and said, "Yeah baby!" in response to his double.

Day Has Begun

The extra day of Event #30: $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha has now started.


Extra Day of Play For Event #30: $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha

Thida Lin

The final five players in Event #30: $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha required a fourth day to determine a winner of the $236,673 and the coveted WSOP gold bracelet. All five players are guaranteed $55,845 when they return to the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino at 12 noon local time. The 1,526 initial entries have been whittled down to just five players, and Luis Zedan wields almost half of the chips in play with 15,670,000 going into the final day. The next closest player within striking distance is Thida Lin (pictured left) with 6,190,000, an almost ten million chip difference in the top two spots.

The other three players in contention include Ryan Robinson (4,675,000), Ryan Goindoo (2,985,000), and Sam Razavi (1,050,000), who has some work to do in a hurry, as he starts the final day with under seven big blinds. With the volatile nature of PLO, however, any one of the four players chasing Zedan could flip the script and make a run for the bracelet, much like Zedan did to Anton Morganstern in Day 3 play yesterday.

Final Five Chip Counts:

Stay tuned for all the pots, wraps and double-suited aces as we prepare to report the award another WSOP bracelet!
