Its an amazing skill to learn how to lose all your chips efficiently. Its worth practicing once or twice. When Jay got down to one chip, he got pocket Aces and doubled up. With those two we saw Ed with pocket Aces, Jay drew to two pair. 24 vs. 36, Ed wins with a pair of twos. Are you detecting a pattern? Jay finally went out when all of his 1 chips got rivered by Ed.

Let me make a prediction in exactly three hands:
2nd place Jay Vogel $27,490
There will be a short pause while the players have a conversation. I believe there will be an end to the tournament shortly.

Dan Waldberg puts all his chips in with A2 but has to make a set of deuces to beat two pair from Mike White, no matter Dan doubles up and keeps playing.
Friday, 20th of January 2006 06:33 PM
Dan let his BB go but gets 4500 into the next pot and its three way action. A big bet post flop from Jay Vogel gets both players to lay down Dan has 4K left.
Friday, 20th of January 2006 06:29 PM
Dan Waldberg is back on the short stack clock and in the Big Blind.
Friday, 20th of January 2006 06:11 PM
Randy King moves in with and gets called by Charles Lineberry showing . The board is a turn making a pair of queens for Randy but a river which makes the straight for Charles.
Randy King 6th place -- $8,245

Short stack: Daniel Walderg 12,100 & Rany King 9,900

I just lent one of my best poker lines to Kaelaine who is reporting the Main Event over at the Goldstrike. Its hard to follow all the players all the time and sometimes you report a player busted only to find them alive and full of chips a few minutes later I told Kaelaine she could use my dodge: "All reports of player bustouts should be considered 94% accurate." At the final tables, like this one, we shoot for a slightly higher percentage.

Hours of Boredom interrupted by moments of Sheer Terror or something like that or thereabouts. A far amount of pre-flop raising here followed by a lot of folding.
Friday, 20th of January 2006 05:00 PM
and a big CLASH, Glen Robertson and Charles Lineberry get all their chips in, Charles has Glen covered, Glen has 18,300. Glen shows and Charles shows and the board is blank, blank, blank, blank, blank,
Glen Robertson 8th place ---- $5,500
Friday, 20th of January 2006 04:53 PM
Our short stacks, if you can call them that, are: Randy King, Jason Johnson, Daniel Waldberg, & Glen Robertson all between 19K and 23K.
Friday, 20th of January 2006 04:44 PM
Mr. Corrado makes a similar all-in reraise and takes down the pot.
Friday, 20th of January 2006 04:40 PM
Mr. Lineberry picks up a nice pot by reraising all -in and thereby inducing a rapid fold.
Friday, 20th of January 2006 04:32 PM
100 ante 500/1000 blinds one hour rounds here at the final table
Friday, 20th of January 2006 04:30 PM
Our first action is big action; Stephen Seibert moves in with TT and gets a call from Mike White with AK. An ace on the flop is all it takes.
Stephen Seibert 9th place ----- $4,125
Friday, 20th of January 2006 04:20 PM
Average stack has 10 rounds of blinds and antes and 32 Big Blinds. It could be a very long day.
Friday, 20th of January 2006 04:15 PM
Interesting chip counts to begin today, at players are within 5500 of average, no big stacks and no short stacks.
