There seems to be a few people watching this event - what would you like to know, anything, because it is a bit hard to meanigfully describe. Send me a note to above email address. I'll credit you in the BLOG.
Russ was leading the betting all the way as the board came Jc 9s Qd 4c 7c BUT the last club seemed to fit with David's hand as he called he slowly lifted his head in what could only have been triumph. As he did so Russ caught it and said "he's got it , he's got it".
Russ Ah Qh 6c 5h
So it is Russ 2nd collecting $191,610
and DAVID CHUI $347,410 and the jewelery.
Just as I typed the above David bets all the way and relieves Russ of 90K with Jacks and Sixes witha n Ace. He also wins the next on the flop. This puts Russ fairly low.
He is now all-in with Q 9 6 4 the board Q J 7 agaianst David's A T 9 4 ; Russ well ahead in this one. The turn is a 7 and the river aJack and Russ doubles up.
Heads up is a bit slower than picking on the low stack.
The game is 15,000 - 30,000 Limit Omaha Hi/Lo.
Haim takes a hit when David shows an Ace high straight to take a large pot as Haim tosses his cards in.
Russ scoops Haim with third nut low and a pair of tens in hand, this puts Haim under extreme pressure now.
Very next hand it is three way action Haim is all-in for about 30K. The board shows 8 A Q 7 K ,Russ' Ace 8 the high for two pair and David's 3 2 for nut low. Haim tosses his cards in , they inadvertantly turn over showing K Q T 8.
All of a sudden there aren't any short stacks. We only have 3 minutes to go in this level so the increase may produce a swing one way or the other. Just on the break Russ gets a few 5K chips from Hiam. 15 minute break.
Danny ( my mistake Jack has been calling him that all day ) splits one and scoops another to go to 105K in chips still trailing but not destitute now.
Eventually the odds of drawing out must catch you and it was so when Hiam's K K 6 Ace combined fairly well with a board of 9 8 6 8 K Danny was on his way to the cashier - with a demand for $84,225.
It was a three way pot that Stephen pushed all his chips into. He had Ah Th 8h 3h up against Daniel also all in after the turn betting wuth As Qd 7h 4s. Russ had called them all with 7c 4c 4h 2s. The board was Ad 6D Jc Tc 2c. Russ got 3/4 and Daniel 1/4 and Stephen nil. Except he collected $63,170 for fifth.
Daniel get 3/4s when all-in still v low of course
Stephen doubles up on the first hand back from the break at the expense of Hiam.
The game is 10,000 - 20,000 Limit Omaha Hi/Lo.
Stephen takes a large pot ( they are all large now ) again at the expense of Hiam.
Daniel is the low man now.
Russ goes heads up with David and makes nut flush nut lw with his Ace and 4 of diamonds - net profit 80K.
David repenishes his stack adding his pair of Kings to a board of 3 Q T 8 8 in a 3 way contest.
Both Stephen and Daniel are low now - they can get through the blinds but only 4 times each.
Hiroshi is up again with Ac 9d 4s 2c , he was re-raising Haim who called the extra 5K with Ah Ad 9c 8c . I was standing next to David Chui who quietly said "two face cards will flop" not with malace just a prediction. The flop Q Q 4 a Jack on the turn and Hiroshi needs a 4 - no it's a 2 and Hiroshi comes 6th in this event for $52,640.
Stephen doubles up with A T 5 4 the flop being T 4 J and the turn a 4 and river a 7. Initially Russ and David had called the all-in David giving it up on the turn and Russ' sidepot bet.
Its the end of this level - customary 15 minute break is extended to 90 minutes for dinner - return at 9:15 pm.
Russ isn't letting anyone push him around - David ch/rs him on turn , he 3 bets.
Hiroshi is down to 27K and Stephen only has 60K. Stephen is hardly playing now - the opposite of David and Russ.
Hiroshi survives his first all-in splitting a pot with Haim - Haim the low and Hiroshi the high.
The game is 8,000 - 16,000 Now.
David and Daniel chopped up Russ' contribution to a very large pot. David had last 3 for quads and Daniel had 4 2 for nut low - Russ having 5 2 for 2nd nut low, to a board of 6 3 3 A 3.
Absolutely no change in chip positions - the only thing to note is that David is playing a lot more flops now - including 3 betting preflop.
Too many 1/4s and misses put Allen out today.
The final hand against Hiroshi was Q 5 3d 2d vs As K T 2s - the board of 3h 6s Ks Td 8h of very little help to the all-in player. 7th for Allen and $52,640.
As we come to the end of this level no-one is desperately low , Hiroshi and Stephen have the smallest stacks
Almost no change - Russ increases his lead . Russ taked down a large put from David Chui - no showdown , Russ showing two Aces.
Russ finds a great card on the river to pick up 3/4 of a pot against Allen who had many outs to scoop.
Allen A 6 5 5, Russ A 6 3 2, - Board J 8 4 J and 6.
Allen is very low now - 15K.
Stephen played a sizable pot against Allen - Allen showing a flush to win with no betting on the river, so Stephen is the lowest stack, about 65K.
Russ and Allen go at it. Three clubs on board and only two low cards makes Russ' nut flush the NUTS - 40K+ profit.
