Hrabec Cracks Gardner's Aces Near Bubble

Nível 16 : Blinds 2,000/5,000, 5,000 ante
Roman Hrabec
Roman Hrabec

Roman Hrabec opened to 10,000 in the hijack and Anthony Gardner moved all in for 46,000 in the big blind. Hrabec thought about it and ultimately called.

Anthony Gardner: {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}
Roman Hrabec: {q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}

Gardner was a good favorite for a double, but the {8-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} flop instantly put him behind by giving Hrabec a flush. The {3-Clubs} turn left Gardner needing a diamond to survive with a superior flush, but the {9-Hearts} river bricked out to send him to the rail short of a cash.

Morstol Finds More Chips

Nível 15 : Blinds 2,000/4,000, 4,000 ante
Thor Morstol
Thor Morstol

Action folded to Aditya Systia, who made it 8,000 from the cutoff only to be met by a button reraise, to 25,000, from Thor Morstol. Systia decided that this was the time to take a stand and replied with a four-bet all in, for 194,000 total, covering Morstol.

Morstol snap-called and the players tabled their hands:

Thor Morstol: {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}
Aditya Systia: {a-Clubs}{q-Clubs}

Morstol was at risk but was on the right side of this cooler and the board ran out {3-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{2-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{k-Clubs} for a full double up, whilst Systia was left licking his wounds and around 4 big blinds to work with.

Gary Miller

Gary Miller opened to 6,500 from early position and picked up a single caller, Kyriakos Papadopoulos, from the big blind.

Both players elected to check their option and the {9-Hearts} completed the board.

Papadopoulos checked the river and Miller fired a bet of 12,500.

Papadopoulos took his time before calling the river bet but mucked his hand when Miller showed {a-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}.

Tommy Nguyen: {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}

It was the classic cooler, and the board ran out {a-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{q-Spades} to improve Stokkan to a boat, confirming his double.

Parker Talbot

PokerStars Ambassador and legendary sometimes-streamer Parker "Tonkaaaap" Talbot continues to chip up and holds one of the larger stacks in the room.

Talbot opened to 4,500 in middle position and Jinho Hong defended the big blind.

The dealer spread the {10-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} flop and Hong checked. Talbot bet 10,000 and Hong called.

The {4-Diamonds} landed on the turn and Hong checked again. Talbot bet 30,000 and Hong called again.

The {3-Hearts} completed the board and Hong checked once more. Talbot fired out another bet, this time for 75,000. Hong went into the tank and deliberated for some time, but ultimately folded to concede the pot to the Canadian.

Reard Reared by Ji's Jacks

Nível 7 : Blinds 500/1,000, 1,000 ante
Alexandre Reard
Alexandre Reard

In a three-way pot on a flop of {5-Clubs}{5-Spades}{7-Diamonds}, Alexandre Reard got his stack of 7,000 in the middle and was called by Min Ji, while the third player in the hand folded.

Alexandre Reard: {7-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}
Min Ji: {j-Diamonds}{j-Spades}

Reard had flopped top pair but couldn't get ahead of the overpair of his opponent as the board finished out {4-Hearts}{6-Spades} to improve the Frenchman to a meaningless two pair and mark his elimination, though he bought back in shortly after.
