Three More Hands

gaellej • Level 10: 800-1,600, 1,600 ante

The tournament director has just announced that each table will be dealt three more hands until bagging and tagging for the night.

Bonu Gets Away with a Stone-Cold Bluff

Leo_Contreras • Level 10: 800-1,600, 1,600 ante

The action was picked up on the river with the board showing the {a-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}.

A player checked to Andrew Bonu who bet 31,000 into the pot of over 40,000.

His opponent went into the tank for a long time and mucked his hand.

Bonu showed the {6-Hearts}{5-Hearts} for a stone-cold bluff missed flush and his opponent couldn't believe he folded the best hand.

Weathington Puts Pressure on Jones

gaellej • Level 10: 800-1,600, 1,600 ante

According to the table, Steven Jones raised and got called by two players, including Richard Weathington.

The flop brought the {q-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}. Jones continued for 8,500 and was again called by his two opponents.

The {2-Diamonds} hit the turn and Jones sent another bet for 25,000. Weathington pushed all in, covering Jones's stack worth around 150,000 chips. The latter tanked for some time and eventually folded his hand.

Weathington revealed the {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds} for a set of nines.

Briones Busts Weglarek

gaellej • Level 10: 800-1,600, 1,600 ante

The {9-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{8-Spades} was on the board after the turn with three players involved. Gili Prizament checked and Wesley Weglarek bet before Jorge Briones reraised it. Prizament let it go but Weglarek jammed before Briones snap-called.

Wesley Weglarek: {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}
Jorge Briones: {5-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}

Briones already had a straight and the {3-Hearts} completed the board on the river to eliminate Weglarek.

Full House Over Full House Elimination

Leo_Contreras • Level 10: 800-1,600, 1,600 ante

The action was picked up preflop when a player was all-in and at risk against Max Havlish.

Opponent: {q-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}
Max Havlish: {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}

The flop {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}{7-Hearts} appeared to be great for Havlish as he improved to trip aces but the turn {q-Clubs} gave his opponent a full house. However, the river {7-Spades} would give Havlish a bigger full house and he would eliminate an opponent from the field.

Korn Mucks River

gaellej • Level 10: 800-1,600, 1,600 ante

The player under the gun raised to 4,500 and it was called by Andres Korn and the player in the big blind.

The {9-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} was dealt on the flop and it checked to Korn who bet 5,500. Only the player in the big blind called and both checked on the {q-Spades} turn.

The {a-Diamonds} hit the river and the big blind led out for 8,000. Korn took a minute and ended up calling, but mucked his cards when his opponent showed {k-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} for two pair.
