Kiletto Eliminates Kabrhel

veunstyle72 • Level 10: Blinds 1,000-1,500, 1,500 ante

Action was caught on a {q-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{4-Spades}{4-Clubs} board. Lily Kiletto bet 15,000 and Martin Kabrehl shoved, for 63,500.

"Look at what is a folding face, cause she's going to fold", says Kabrhel to PokerNews. But Kiletto had others plans and she finally tossed a chip to call.

"Good call", said Kabrhel with {10-Spades}{9-Spades} for a busted straight and flush draw. Kiletto had {a-Clubs}{q-Clubs} for top pair, and that was enough to eliminate Kabrhel.

Wheldon Gets Max Value With Straight Flush

lewispowell2000 • Level 10: Blinds 1,000-1,500, 1,500 ante

Rupom Pal raised to 3,600 from the button and was called by the small blind and Graham Wheldon in the big blind.

The flop came {q-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{10-Clubs} and action checked through.

The {6-Hearts} was the turn and Wheldon bet 4,000 when checked to. Only the small blind called.

The river was the {9-Hearts} and Wheldon bet 10,500 when checked to. The small blind raised to 25,000 before Wheldon shoved for 60,000 effective. His opponent called. Wheldon showed {10-Hearts}{8-Hearts} for the straight flush while his opponent had {a-Hearts}{j-Clubs} for the nut flush as the small blind had been hit with the worst card in the deck on the river.

Wheldon collected his chips and was very happy to recap the hand to PokerNews.

Cechowski Keeps Climbing

veunstyle72 • Level 10: Blinds 1,000-1,500, 1,500 ante

In the hijack, Dylan Cechowski opened and Vincent Chauve called in the cutoff. The player on the button also called, so did the player in the big blind.

On a {k-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} flop, Cechowski bet 5,000, called by Chauve and the player on the button raised to 20,000. The player in the big blind folded and Cechowski announced all in. Chauve folded and the player on the button called for his last 60,000.

Button Player: {k-Spades}{q-Clubs}
Dylan Cechowski: {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}

The player on the button had top pair but Cechowski held an overpair, and after a {6-Spades} turn and a {8-Clubs} river, Cechowski was able to eliminate a new player.

Fields Wins Big Pot

lewispowell2000 • Level 10: Blinds 1,000-1,500, 1,500 ante

Joining the action on the river the board read {10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{2-Spades}{5-Hearts}.

There was about 70,000 in the middle and Eric Fields was on the button where he bet 52,200. His opponent in the big blind went deep into the tank where he asked "Ace-high is good?".

The clock was called and as the clock expired the big blind called. It was bad news as the famous Fields turned over {7-Clubs}{6-Clubs} for a straight as his opponent mucked and was left with scraps. The very next hand his opponent hit the rails.

WSOP Main Event Railbird Pays Back Daniel Negreanu Three-Year "Debt"

Daniel Negreanu

Daniel Negreanu has had a disappointing 2022 World Series of Poker, and that didn't change on Day 1c of the Main Event, but he did receive a good luck charm from one player on the rail, so there's that.

A wholesome moment took place Tuesday evening inside Bally's when Arash Shahi, a fellow Canadian from Toronto, approached the GGPoker ambassador who was seated at his table during the $10,000 buy-in world championship event.

Mobley Shows The Muscles

veunstyle72 • Level 10: 1,000-1,500, 1,500 ante

"There's a lot of action on this new table", just confessed Tim Reilly, who is playing his second bullet tonight.

"First bullet was post Main Event, but this time, it's different"

Action on this table came right after that conversation, with Izak Young who opened in early position. Just after him, Michael Mobley called, and they were heads up to the flop.

On a {4-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{9-Spades} flop, Young bet 4,500 and Mobley quickly called. Same scenario on a {k-Clubs} turn, but this time the bet was 15,000. On a {a-Hearts} river, Young bet again, 15,000, but Mobley moved all in. Young did not expect that, and folded to keep some chips behind.
