Tabatabai Doubles; Baker Cooked


We arrived at the table just in time to see John Tabatabai being pushed a pot. We're not sure when the money went in, but we can confirm that Tabatabai just double holding {5-Spades}{5-Clubs} on a {7-Spades}{5-Hearts}{10-Spades}{4-Clubs}{K-Clubs} against the {A-Spades}{J-Spades} of his unknown opponent. Based on the cards, we're guessing the money went in on the flop.

Meanwhile, David "ODB" Baker, who has been nursing a short stack much of the evening, has been eliminated from the tournament.

Kollman Succumbs

Erich Kollmann
Erich Kollmann

A short-stacked Erich Kollmann moved all in for 575 from the cutoff and received calls from Marc Barller in the small and the player in the big blind. Both those players proceeded to check it down as the board ran out {A-Spades}{8-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}, and Bariller showed {2-Spades}{6-Hearts}. The big blind then showed {8-Clubs}{5-Hearts} for the win as Kollmann simply mucked.

Curious George Sends Some to Carbon


We happened upon Table 10 just as the dealer was pushing Bourcier de Carbon a sizable pot. From what we could piece together, there was already quite a bit in the middle when de Carbon bet 3,000 on the river with a board reading {J-Hearts}{10-Spades}{7-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{5-Spades} and received a call from Gil George. De Carbon tabled {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts} for a full house, and George shook his head before sending his cards to the muck.

Happy John Monnette

John Monnette
John Monnette

Yesterday John Monnette had a short and not-so-sweet day after busting in the first level. Monnette, who won a bracelet this summer and is contending for Player of the Year, opted to fire a second bullet here on Day 2 and it's paying dividends thus far.

In a recent hand, Monnette and a player in the small blind got the money in on a {8-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{A-Hearts} flop with the latter being all in for around 6,500. The small blind held {A-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} and was in dire straits against the {A-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} of Monnette. The {8-Hearts} turn ended any suspense as Monnette improved to a boat, which left the small blind drawing dead, and he was pushed the pot after the meaningless {K-Spades} was put out on the river. Monnette is now up to 30,000.

One for de Carbon


Action folded around to Bourcier de Carbon on the button and he put in a raise to 775, which Jean Paul Pasqualini called from the big blind. The {J-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{K-Spades} flop saw Pasqualini lead out for a modest 400, de Carbon call, and the {4-Spades} turn.

This time Pasqualini checked, and de Carbon sprung to life with a bet of 1,000. It proved enough to get the job done as Pasqualini gave up on the hand.
