Kenny Tran Takes a Brutal Beat to End the Day

Kenny Tran called an opponent's all in and had him dominated-- with {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs} over {K-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}. The {A-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{9-Spades} flop was a great one for Tran, but the {10-Hearts} fell on the turn, opening up a gutshot draw for his opponent. The river was the {Q-Clubs}, his opponent making his straight, and Tran found himself the victim of yet another brutal suckout.

Gold Loses Ground

Jamie Gold just lost a big pot to end the night. On a flop of:

{10-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{3-Spades} his opponent pushes all in for about 25k. Gold thinks so long they call the clock and in the last few seconds he calls with {A-Spades}{7-Spades} and runs into {J-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}.

No help on the turn or river and Gold drops about 30k.

Patrik's Number One Fan

Patrik Antonius
Patrik Antonius
A man on the rail asked me to take his hat to Patrik Antonius to sign it. I duly obliged and it was only when I handed him the hat that I realised a TV camera was fixed on me.

So if you watch this on TV later on this year and see a guy pushing 30 with a beer gut acting like a Justin Timberlake fan to Antonius, its me.

Daniel Negreanu Speaking in Tongues

"Zwei biere!!"
"Zwei biere!!"
At the featured TV table, Daniel Negreanu made small talk with Daniel Zink, who happens to be German. Negreanu said the three or four phrases he knew in German. Zink laughed because they were totally random. Zink then said he knew only one phrase in Spanish, "Dos cervezas." At that point, Negreanu became the Tower of Babel and began speaking in tongues, in an odd mixture of German, Romanian, Spanish, German, and French. For about two minutes no one knew what he was saying.

TD Jack Effel announced to the crowd, "It's official, Daniel Negreanu has gone insane."

Huge Hand Busts Adam Junglen, Propels Aleksander Vathne Near Lead

Big Slick is no good for Adam Junglen
Big Slick is no good for Adam Junglen
Aleksander Vathne raised in late position after a couple of limpers entered the pot. Small blind Adam Junglen thought for a while and re-raised from 6,700 to 21,000. Back to Vathne, who thought for about the same length of time and threebet all in. It wasn't a tiny stack either - he had Junglen covered and this was going to be nearing a six-figure call if he made it. Probably for the first time I've seen at an event, Adam Junglen looked a bit uncomfortable, and muttered something to himself - whatever misgivings he might have had weren't enough to stop him calling, though.

Aleksander Vathne showed: {A-Clubs}{A-Spades}
Adam Junglen showed: {A-Clubs}{K-Hearts}

The board came out {3-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{K-Clubs}...{J-Diamonds}

And so the aggressive young player misses out on Day Three by eleven minutes.
