Things haven't been going so well for Chris Ferguson of late. Down to just 850 after losing a big hold'em pot to Patrik Antonius, who was holding pocket jacks on a raggy board, Chris raised the very next hand and then called all in to a reraise from Mark Gregorich. Under the circumstances no one was expecting him actually to have a premium hand, but premium it was.
Allen Cunningham raises from early position and finds calls from Dave Ulliott, Jeff Lisandro on the button, and David Levi on the big blind.
The flop comes and Cunningham continues his aggression by betting, only to be raised by Ulliott. Lisandro calls, Levi passes, and Cunningham calls before the turn comes .
This slows them all down as they check it before we see the river . Ulliott bets 800 and only Cunningham calls, but he mucks upon seeing Ulliott's . Ulliott's nut low and two pair is good enough to scoop and put him on 9,300.
Tony Bloom has been moved next to Mike Matusow, and has been enjoying a very thorough massage since he arrived at the table. He seems to be entering a new phase of said massage, though, which for some reason involves him removing his watch, his gold chain, and any other metals and shiny things he may be wearing and tucking them in his top pocket for safekeeping. Let's hope he doesn't feel the need to remove anything else.
