Two Leftover Hands from Level 22

[user153638] • Nível 23: 15,000-30,000, 4,000 ante

Level 22 recently ticked down, and there were two hands that unfolded near the end that we want to share.

Hand #1: Action folded to John Juanda in the hijack and he moved all in for 229,000. Philipp Gruissem called from the button, and both blinds got out of the way. Juanda tabled the {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}, a hand lucky in Asian culture, and then Gruissem said, "I got the luckiest hand in Germany." He then rolled over the {a-Hearts}{j-Spades}.

The "luckiest hand in Germany" proved not to be too lucky though as the board ran out a dry {7-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{9-Clubs}{10-Hearts} and Juanda was pushed the pot.

Hand #2: Stephen Chidwick opened for 55,000 under the gun and Martin Finger called from the button. The {6-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{a-Hearts} flop saw Finger call a bet of 75,000 from Chidwick, who then checked the {6-Clubs} turn. Finger took the opportunity to bet 120,000, Chidwick called, and then both players checked the {3-Diamonds} river.

It looked like Chidwick held eights (though the dealer scooped up his cards before we caught a good look), but either way it was no good as Finger took down the pot with the {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}.

Seiver Seizes Lead From Kitai’s Stack

• Nível 22: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante

Philipp Gruissem opened for 55,000 and, from the cutoff, Davidi Kitai three-bet to 133,000. Scott Seiver then four-bet to 300,000 from the button. Gruissem folded and Kitai elected to call.

The flop was {6-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{8-Clubs}. Both players checked and saw the turn card {j-Spades}. Two checks again and they went to the river {5-Diamonds}. Kitai checked and Seiver went for the red T25000 chips and bet 400,000.

Off came Kitai’s sunglasses as he stared into Seiver’s eyes. Seiver stared him back down. Kitai took several minutes to make his decision which was to make the call.

Seiver flipped over {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} and started grabbing the chips in the pot, sure he was good. He was as Kitai slid his cards to the dealer.

Three players saw a flop of {5-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{6-Spades}. Kitai checked, Seiver bet 58,000 which Finger called and the Kitai went for a check-raise to 235,000.

Philbort the Ladies Man

[user153638] • Nível 22: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante

Philipp "Philbort" Gruissem opened for 52,000 from early position and Davidi Kitai called from the button. The blinds both folded, the flop fell {8-Spades}{q-Hearts}{2-Clubs}, and Gruissem continued for 56,000, which Kitai called.

When the dealer burned and turned the {2-Hearts}, Gruissem bet 130,000, Kitai called, and the {9-Spades} completed the board on the river. Gruissem bet again, this time 250,000, and Kitai thought for about 45 seconds before making the call.

Gruissem tabled the {q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} for a full house, and that prompted Kitai to muck his hand.

Pascal Lefrancois Eliminated in 9th Place (€113,250)

Pascal Lefrancois - 9th Place
Pascal Lefrancois - 9th Place

Well, it didn't take long for the first elimination of the day.

Action folded to World Series of Poker bracelet winner Pascal Lefrancois on the button and he opened for 52,000. Chip leader Davidi Kitai then three-bet to 133,000 from the small blind, the big folded, and Lefrancois announced that he was all in for roughly 600,000. Kitai snap-called.

Kitai: {q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}
Lefrancois: {a-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}

Lefrancois had picked a bad time to shove as Kitai had woken up with a powerhouse hand. The {4-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} flop was no help to Lefrancois, but he did pick up a gutshot straight draw on the {J-Diamonds} turn. Unfortunately for him the {K-Clubs} blanked on the river and he hit the rail in ninth place for €113,250.

We're now down to the official final table of eight.

First Few Hands

• Nível 22: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante

Davidi Kitai opened the very first pot for a raise to 55,000 and won it unopposed.

The first flop that we saw was when Kitai opened under-the-gun for 55,000 and got calls from Philipp Gruissem in position and Pascal Lefrancois in the big blind.

The dealer put the first three cards out {j-Clubs}{q-Spades}{9-Spades} and a continuation bet from Kitai took it down.

The next flop saw Byron Kaverman open for 55,000 and Kitai defend his big blind. He then checked when the flop came {7-Clubs}{q-Spades}{a-Hearts}. A bet of 70,000 from Kaverman saw a fold from Kitai.

Just then Miao arrived to take his seat.
