Hand #346 - Joe Cada Moves In

Cada smiles at his cheering section.
Cada smiles at his cheering section.
Joe Cada has the button. He sticks out 3 million again, and Moon has three-betting on his mind. Eight million is his standard three-bet, and that's what he makes it this time too. We haven't seen a four-bet from Cada in this spot yet, but he appears to be contemplating something this time. Indeed, after 30 seconds or so, Effel announces, "Joe's gonna re-raise all in." The dealer stands to break down Cada's stack, and Moon learns it's another 50,550,000 to make the call.

Moon counts down his own stack to see what the damage is before re-affirming the total with the dealer. He eventually stands from his chair, and a hushed reaction courses through the crowd. Players who stand usually call, and Moon looks to have the bracelet in his vision.

But not this time. He folds after another minute or so, and Cada drags the chips.

Moon - 127,850,000
Cada - 66,950,000

Hand #344 - Joe Cada

Joe Cada has the button. Three million it is, and Moon makes the smooth call this time. The flop brings {8-Diamonds} {10-Clubs} {10-Spades}. With Moon checking in front of him, Cada stacks out 3 million chips and plunks them into the pot. Not wasting any time, Moon calls before seeing the {9-Clubs} hit the turn. Both players check in turn this time, and the {7-Spades} makes for a very interesting board. Moon passes again, and Cada bets 5.75 million. A quick call from Moon sees Cada table a six to fill in the ten-high straight. Moon flashes his cards and mucks, sending the chips to Cada.

Hand #342 - Darvin Moon

Joe Cada has the button. He raises to 3 million once again. Apart from two walks, Cada has raised every hand from the button. Moon seems to realize that, as his three-bet frequency has picked up. He does so this time too, re-raising to 8 million and taking the pot with no contest.

Hand #339 - Joe Cada

Darvin Moon has the button and almost a three-to-one chip lead. He raises to 3.0 million and Joe Cada calls. The flops comes {6-Diamonds} {4-Hearts} {K-Hearts} and both check.

The turn is the {Q-Diamonds} and both check again.

The river is the {J-Clubs} and both players check again. Cada shows ace high and Moon mucks.

Hand #338 - Moon Takes a Chunk From Cada

Joe Cada has the button. He puts in his standard raise to 3 million, and Moon slides in the call to see a flop of {3-Hearts} {5-Diamonds} {A-Clubs}. Moon leads out with 5 million chips, drawing another pause from Cada. In retrospect, it looks like he was just stacking out a raise during that think time. He shoves out 13 million chips, and Moon immediately reaches for re-raising chips. The crowd comes to life as Moon pulls five stacks of beige chips from his pile, one-by-one into his staging area. As soon as his hands go behind the chips and they begin to inch forward, Cada's cards hit the muck.

Moon's half of the audience explodes in a boisterous ovation as Moon rakes in a big pot. He's got nearly a three-to-one chip lead over Cada now.

Moon - 145,200,000
Cada - 49,600,000
