On a tear Reka Hellgato takes her pocket kings the distance and picks up a 22K pot.
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 11:50 PM
In heads up play, Reka Hellgato takes back the chip lead. She pitted her pocket jacks against pocket nines held by her opponent. Nothing arrived for the nines on the board and Reka scoops a monstere 45K pot.
Devi Ortega made the call when a player in early position raised only 600. Devi was in the big blind and was already in for half the bet. The flop brought the 9 5 X. Ortega put her opponent all in and was called. Devi showed a 9 5 and her opponent, a pair of aces. Slow play kills. The aces are cracked by two silly pair and she is out of the game. Devi Ortega grew her stack to 53K.
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 11:34 PM
Monica Champa answered an all in raised happily as she held pocket aces. Her opponent showed the As Js. The flop brought the Ks 9h 4s. Not good for Monica. She is in the lead but has to get past the potential flush. The turn was good for her as it came the 4h but the river brought bad news when the 7s slipped in the back door.
Level 10 begins. 200 antes with 600 / 1200 blinds.

Players left are all in the money.
With the board showing the 5h Ad Tc, Laurie Scott bet 15K which put her opponent all in. Laurie showed the Ac 2c and the contender the Ah Kh. The turn brought the 4d followed by the 3d. Laurie caught perfect perfect for a running straight. She ousts another and builds her stack to 50K.
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 10:05 PM
From early position, Anjela Brunson raised to 3K. A competitor in middle position pushed all in for 7500 and Brunson immediately called and flipped over pocket ladies. The all in player showed the Ks Jh. The flop came the Ah Qd 5c giving Brunson a set but the contender a draw for broadway. The turn brought the Jc and the river the Kc. Lots of help, but not quite enough. Anjela Brunson takes the pot and has almost 60,000 in chippage. She is now our current chippie.
Wowie...ONLY 128 left....and they made this a two day event......Who wasnt thinking on that one?
Under 140 players now. Count Kathy Liebert out of the ladies event.
We move to Level 9. Ante is 100 with 400 / 800 blinds.
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 09:27 PM

Sunday, 09th of July 2006 08:18 PM
With the board showing the 9s Qd Th 4c, Heather Spain pushed all in and had a caller. Heather had pocket kings and her opponent pocket nines. Heather had some making up to do. Any jack or king would do it. Yep, just as suspected, the Kh hit the river and with set over set Heather Spain scoops a big pot. She is up to 25K.
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 07:49 PM
Last years champion is gone. Jennifer Tilly moved all in preflop on the button and Heather Embry in the small blind jumped in with her. Tilly showed a pair of threes and Embry the As Qh. The board brought the Js 9d 7s 4s and Tilly was looking safe, sorta, as any spade, A or Q would take her threes down. Sure enough, the Ac hit the board and Jennifer Tilly relinquishes her crown.
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 05:53 PM
More name players who have passed out. Erica Schoenberg, Maureen Feduniak, Ricki Lake, Alexandria Vuong, Cyndy Violette and Jennifer Leigh.
La Sengphet has taken the lead. Another unknown player, La has reached 32K. She is followed by Reka Hellgato who maintains 23K and Katie Porello who is sitting safe with 18K.
Players take a dinner break and will return at 7:15pm.
There was a raise from middle position to 800. Folded around to the button, she pushed all in for 4250. La Sengphet came over the top of both raisers and pushed all in for 21K. The middle position raiser had 3K and called showing the Th Ts. The button showed the Ks Ah and La the Js Jc. The flop came the Jd 3d 2 giving La Sengphet a set. Both the all in players were way behind. They were virtually drawing dead, but, we have all seen stranger things happen. Not this time. The 6h hit the turn and it was all over. Two more players go home. The Kd on the river was just for show.
Reka Hellgato maintains her lead with over 23K.
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 05:41 PM
In an allin raise preflop, Suzanne Mead tossed 2K in the middle and got a call from Kathy Liebert. Mead flipped over the Ac Jc and Liebert the Tc 5d. The flop brought the Kd Qd 3d. The A J was ahead and looking for a one of the two tens left in the deck to fill in the straight and The Tc 5d is begging for a 5 or a diamond. The Th hit the river, a two outer and Mead filled her straight. Liebert has 9 outs to catch a diamond, but, no such luck. The Js fell on the river and Mead doubled through Lieber.
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 04:54 PM
We are now starting Level 6. The ante is still 25 but the blinds go to 150 / 300.
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 04:53 PM
Kelli Griggs raised to 1200 from early position and got a rerasie from Joann Cordero to 1600 all in. Griggs called and showed the Ah Ks. Cordero th As Js. The board brought the Ad 6d 3c 8s 2s and the king kicker made the hand. Griggs knocks out Cordero and grows her stack to 9K.
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 04:10 PM
The winner from last year, Jennifer Tilly took down a nice pot when her K K won against an A T suited. She is up to almost 10K.
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 03:30 PM
Level 5 begins after the break. The blinds remain at 100 / 200 but they add a 25 ante.
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 03:13 PM
Mimi Rogers answered an early position raise by moving all in for 1150 chips. The raiser called and showed Mimi pocket sevens. Mimi flipped over the As Js and spiked her ace on the flop. She is back up to 2600 chips.
Some other well known ladies who have left the building include Jean Gluck, J J Liu, Linda Johnson, Aidilly Elviro and Shannon Elizabeth.
Reka Hellgato has taken the lead as she has almost hit hte 20K mark. She is followed by Alina Farinas who sits at about 10K. Now, in 3rd position is Kathy Liebert, and that is funny as she is busy shifting from one tourney to another as she attempts to play the ladies event as well as the Omaha 10K event. Good luck to you Kathy!
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 02:40 PM
We move to Level 4. Blinds have increased to 100 / 200.
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 02:01 PM
Barbara Enright moved all in preflop and got a call from Lequita Taylor. Barbara showed big slick and Lequita the 7s 7d. The sevens held up against two overs and Barbara Enright goes home.
An unknown player, Alina Farinas is leading the pack with over 11K.
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 01:50 PM
A player we donít see much anymore has finished for today. Susie Isaacs moved all in from early position and got a call from Angela Louis who had her covered by one black chip. Angela showed the Ac Kd and Susie the Ah Tc. She is way behind. The board brought the Js 8s 2h 2c 4s to take Susie to the rail.
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 01:30 PM
Jennifer Leigh woke up with a hand she could bet the ranch on and moved all in preflop. She got a caller. Jennifer showed the Tc Td and had her opponent over powered as she held the 7s 7c. The board brought the Js 3h 2c Qh 4c and the tens were golden. Jennifer doubled up and is back to her starting amount, 1000 chips.
Players take a break. They will return at 120 pm to Level 3. 50 / 100 blinds.
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 01:04 PM
Heads up between Marsha Hassler and Cecilia Mortensen, we saw a flop of the Td 5d 2c. Marsha, UTG bet 300 and Cecilia called. The turn brought the 9d. Marsha made it 300 again. Cecilia raised to 825 which put her all in. Marsha felt fine to call and showed the Ad Tc. Cecilia showed the 2d 2s for a set of deuces. The river brought the dreaded Jd which gave her the nut flush. Cecilia Mortensen is out of the ladies event this year.
Some other players who are finished today are Sabina Gadecki, Jeanine Deeb and Sarah Bilney. I dont have a firm figure, but it appears that this ladies tournament has exceeded last years entries by over a half. With 601 last year, there are over 900 this year.
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 12:56 PM
Allen Cunninghamís counterpart, Melissa Hayden moved all in preflop for her last 375. Apparently she has run into a few bad hands. The cutoff and button call. It is two against one. The flop came the 9c 7d 2s. The cutoff made it 400 to go and the button called for the sidepot. The turn came the 2c. The cutoff merely checked and the button became the aggressor and bet 800. The cutoff got out of the hand and the button took the side pot. The button showed pocket queens and Hayden pocket fours. The river came the 6s. Melissa, being the sweetheart she is, wished everyone at the table good luck and went back to her outstanding photographic skills.
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 12:45 PM
Mimi Rogers continues her attack. In a battle of the blinds and with the flop of the 9c 5h 5d, Mimi Rogers checked from the small blind and the big blind bet 125 at the 50 chip pot. The turn brought the 2h. Mimi checked and the big blind fired 300 at the pot. Over the top came Mimi taking it to 800. The big blind, concerned, took a long look at the board. She finally folded, I guess deciding she could easily be beaten. Mimi is nice enough to show her the 5c for trips.
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 12:25 PM
After a flop of the Js 8c 2c, Ricki Lake placed all her chips, 1075 of them in front of her for an all in bet. There was 5-way action preflop. The other four skedaddle with that move and Ricki picks up the 225 in the pot.
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 12:15 PM
Level two has begun. The blinds are 25 / 50.
With another "star" in the game, is it respect or just no cards? Ricki Lake raised to 200 in early position and was answered with everyone folding.
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 12:05 PM
One player limped in and Kathy Liebert tossed 125 into the pot for a raise. The small blind didnít notice the raise. She broadcasted raise to 125. Now, does she have to raise another 100 to make good on that verbal? The floor said no. So, it was treated as a call. The flop came the 9h 6h 6c. Both the middle position and Kathy Liebert checked and the small blind fired 400 at the pot. Liebert came over the top to all in status for 1100 more. No callers. Kathy is up to 2300.
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 11:43 AM
Mimi Rogers almost triples up early. She is up to 2800 already.
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 11:33 AM
Oh no...one of my very favorties has been eliminated from the tournament early today. Vanessa Roussa, one of the young "up and comers" will get plenty of rest for her next event. Hahaha.....WRONG...she is playing in day 2 of the no limit game as well....hard to be two places at once I imagine.
Level one will begin with 25 / 25 blinds. Each player has been given 1000 starting chips. Last year there were 601 entries. It will be exciting to get the count for this year and see how much we beat last years record.
Sunday, 09th of July 2006 11:12 AM
