Fred Conforti 1st place $121,105 and a 10K seat and the WSOP Ring

Norm is all-in again with QQ gets a call and doubles up again. Norm Ketchum 160K.
Sunday, 22nd of January 2006 10:09 PM
Since that monster hand, Norm Ketchum has been all-in twice. Once he got the call and once, NO WAIT twice now he gets a fold.

A REAL POT! Fred with AT goes all-in and is called by Norm with A8, there is a Ten on the river and Fred gets a monster double-up.

Bill Edler moves in with 99 and gets one call (both players we find out later had AQ) being that the draws are diminished. Bill doubles up to 185K.
This may take awhile OR we might be in the steakhouse in twenty minutes or there could be rain.

There is a huge mega-satellite going on here tonight, will get the numbers, but they are probably going to be 10 or more seats.
Sorry again folks, we had some miscommunication on that big pot won by Fred. Bill Edler was in that pot with Fred. So now Bill has about 90K and Fred just over 230K, leaving Norm will 490K. (approximately)
Sunday, 22nd of January 2006 07:58 PM
BAM! Fred takes AQ suited up against AT off from Norm and even with a scary flush board the AQ holds up and Bill has doubled up.
Sunday, 22nd of January 2006 07:52 PM
Bill Edler and Fred Conforti each have approx. 175K, leaving Norm Ketchum, our chipleader all day long, with 475K.

The short stacks get into it and all-in-to-it. Wayne Philpot shows KT and Fred Conforti shows 99. The board begins to straighted but it straightens to Fred's hand.

Just as I was getting a chipcount the two leaders got into a heads up battle 25K on the flop; 50K more on the turn and all-in and call on the river. Norm Ketchum shows a set of sevens; Fred Conforti shows two pair and Norm is now a massive chipleader.
Wayne Philpot 66K; Bill Edler 115K; and now Fred Conforti with 96K; thats over 350K for Norm.
Sunday, 22nd of January 2006 05:58 PM
Action, action we are looking for the action. You might think they are one off the bubble for a TV appearance here rather then over at the Stike.
Sunday, 22nd of January 2006 05:42 PM
Sorry folks, this was a 2,000 starting chip event. So there are 826,000 chips in play. So give Norm Ketchum 290K or thereabouts; Fred Conforti 240K or so; Bill Edler 170K or near abouts; and 110K nearly for Wayne Philpot.

Russ Sherrod makes a nice raise gets reraised all-in by Bill Edler and makes the call, of course, with his Pocket Rockets. Bill shows Pocket Jacks. But the flop is J66 and Bill has a full boat and Russ is drawing to the last two aces in the deck, it is not to be. Cracked Aces!
Russ Sherrod 9th place -- $7,810
Sunday, 22nd of January 2006 03:53 PM
Some generalized non-poker confusion at the moment.
