Alan's Goehring Home

From the Empire Casino...

Alan Goehring, who was fortunate to treble through his shortstack earlier on, is now finally out. He made his move for 2,350 after Irfan Hassan had re-raised Johnny Lodden's 1,400 pre-flop raise to 4,000.

Johnny called, and the two players, with Goehring fighting for his tournament life, saw a {K-Spades}{2-Hearts}{K-Clubs} flop.

Both players checked, and out came the {8-Hearts} turn.

This time Hassan bet 4k, but Lodden was having none of it and quickly stepped out of the way.

On their backs...

Hassan = {K-Hearts}{J-Spades}
Goerhing = {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}

River = {A-Clubs}

Madsen is Gone

Jeff Madsen
Jeff Madsen
After surviving all in after all in, Jeff Madsens luck has run out.

He shoves all in on a flop of:

{4-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{8-Hearts} and is quickly called by Shaun Deeb

Madsen: {K-Clubs}{8-Spades}
Deeb: {5-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}

A red queen on the turn sees Madsen drawing dead and he is out.

The players are now starting to drop like flies now, I dont know what they ate during the break but I dont want any.

Tino Lechich Claims Another Victim

THE FIFTY-- Australia's Tino Lechich has been our chip leader over here at the Fifty for most of the day, with a high point of 78,000 that slipped to about 56K around the dinner break. No worries for this one-man wrecking ball, though, as he just claimed another victim, taking out a short-stacked opponent with a set of queens and sending his stack back up to 65,000.

The New Murderer's Row

THE FIFTY-- With the flurry of post-dinner bustouts here at the Fifty, the floor has finally broken the second table of the day. After the re-shuffle, Table 22 ended up with a virtual Murderer's Row with Johnny Chan, Lee Nelson and Mads Anderson all seated next to one another.

Gold Rush

Big Slick gave me a big kick
Big Slick gave me a big kick
From the Empire...

Jamie Gold has just eliminated Chris Bruce from the feature table. As retold by Bruce himself, "I raised it up to 1.6k, Jamie made it 4k and I pushed for 30k. He called with Aces, I had Ace King, flop came rags."

Chris was so dejected that he decided to leave without undertaking interviews. His parting words were, "I'd only invested 1.6k, I didn't need to get involved."

Jeff Madsen Doubles Up - Again

From the Sportsman --

Never quite managing to top the starting stack, Jeff Madsen is proving knockout-proof today. This time it was Simon Taylor calling his 7,400 all-in with {Q-Clubs}{K-Clubs}, finding Madsen with {A-Spades}{8-Clubs}.

Flop: {J-Spades}{A-Hearts}{J-Hearts}
Turn: {A-Clubs} - no, wait, in all the confusion surrounding the swarming of the cameras, the dealer had already burned, and this Ace was meant to be the burn for the river, while the second burn was the turn. Confused? We were.

Real Turn: {J-Clubs} "New chop outs," murmured pessimistic Madsen...
River: {2-Diamonds}
