Seems to be that time again. I guess we will know pretty soon if we will have day 3 of NOT playing it out. The players are huddled together hashing it out. Seems to me that in the previous WSOP Circuit events this was not the case. However, instead of the exception, it has become the rule this time.
Approximate chip count:

We take a 15 minute break and move to the next level. The ante is 500 with 3K / 6K blinds.

Neal Gersony doubles through Chin Nguyen when his A Q held out over Chin's A 9. Seems lady luck is shining on Neal for a bit.

Neal Gersony pushd all in and got an immediate call from Kelly Smith. Kelly flipped over pocket cowboys and Neal showed the A J. The ace magnets worked (the K K) as the flop brought the Ace for Neal. The rest of the cards were unremarkable and Neal doubled through Kelly and his pretty pocket kings.

Neal raised to 12K. Right behind him Peter Lios pushed all in and as soon as he did Tony Licastro made it his bank to go. Whitey looked at his cards and was in dispair...letting us all know his pain. He laid down pocket jacks. Neal folded and we see the cards. Peter had big slick, the A K and Tony had a pair of sevens. The board brought small stuff and we lose Peter Lios to 7th for $12,880.

Whitey raised to 9K and got an all in from Syracuse Chris for 11K. Whitey called and showed the A K. Chris had a pair of hooks, the J J . The Ace fell immediately on the flop and Whitey went crazy. Tony Licastro said "you're gonna give me a heart attack". We lose Syracuse Chris Tsiprailidis to 8th for $9,660.

This time Neal Gersony and Kelly Smith go heads up with Neal all in. Neal has the Q 3 and Kelly the K 9. The flop brought the Q for Neal and he doubled though Kelly to stay alive.
Whitey and Arthur go to battle with Whitey all in. He turns over pocket nines and Arthur the A J. Whitey begins his ritual of yelling for all low cards and once again gets his wish. He doubled through Arthur.

In a classic matchup, we get a pair of jacks held by Tim going up against a pair of ladies held by Kelly. The board kept the queens strong and we lose Tim Dalessandro to 9th for $6,440.

Mark has the button. He moved all in for his 9K and was called by Chin Nguyen. Chin showed the K 2 and Mark the J T . THe flop brought the 5 8 9 giving Mark lots of outs. The 3 was a scare card as Chin held a spade. Sure enough, the A hit the river and knocked Mark Lunenfeld out in 10th for $3,864.

The players take a 15 minute break and we move to level 14. 500 antes with 2K / 4K blinds.
Sunday, 26th of March 2006 03:55 PM
Syracuse Chris moved all in with his tiny stack and got a call from Tony. It was A T vs A J for Tony. We get a ten on the turn and Chris lives to play some more.

Harry "Whitey" White moved all in and got his call from Tim Daledssandro. Whitey showed a pair of black tens and Tim the A J . With a great deal of yelling going on, completely by Whitey, the flop comes the 7 4 6 . The yelling continues as Whitely begs the dealer for low cards. The 2 and 4 answers his prayers and he doubled though Tim.

In a battle of the blinds, Arthur moved all in and was quickly called by a very short stacked Neal Gersony. Arthur showed the T 7 . I suspect he didnt think he was going to get a call. Ya think? Neal showed a little bigger hand with the K 3 . Toss up. The board brought an A 2 4 Q 2 and Neal stays alive with King high and doubled though Arthur.
Sunday, 26th of March 2006 03:44 PM
This time Kelly Smith raised to 10K from early position and got a call from Arthur in the big blind. The flop came the 8 T K . Arthur was first to act and made a move with a 20K bet. Kelly released his hand.
Sunday, 26th of March 2006 03:38 PM
Kelly Smith limped in and to Tony Licastro, he moved all in. Back to Chin Nguyen in the big blind, he folds and Kelly follows. Tony is sitting with the power to bully. Tough to be sitting across from him today.
Tony Licastro on the button makes the same move and picks up the blinds and antes.
Button starts on Peter Lios. Folded around to him, he makes the ole button move and picks up the blinds and antes.
