Christoph Vogelsang Delivers a Double Knockout

Nível 7 : 300/600, 100 ante

Christoph Vogelsang, Claudia Woslki and Thomas Taylor managed to get all of their chips in the middle before the flop.

Vogelsang had both of his opponents covered, while Taylor had 17,000 and Wolski had 22,000.

The flop came {q-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{5-Spades}, giving Woslki top set and leaving Vogelsang with a gutshot, while Taylor was drawing very slim with backdoor outs to stay alive. Vogelsang exclaimed, "How does the queen come?!"

The turn was the {6-Spades}, and the river was the {10-Clubs}, giving Vogelsang the card he needed to make a straight, sending Taylor and Wolski home.

As Vogelsang raked in the chips he had a big smile on his face and said, "Never in my life have I hit such a hand."

Nível 7 : 300/600, 100 ante

The player under the gun raised and Igor Kurganov on the button three-bet to 3,900. Daniel Koop in the small blind cold called, the big blind folded and the initial raiser called.

Both Koop and the initial raiser checked on {3-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{J-Hearts} before Kurganov bet 4,400. Koop check-raised to 13,000 with 19,200 behind. The initial raiser tanked for some time but eventually folded. Kurganov moved in and Koop needed about four minutes before deciding to fold.

Ben Heath Busted

Nível 7 : 300/600, 100 ante
Ben Heath
Ben Heath

Ben Heath has fired his last bet in the PokerStars Championships Bahamas Main Event after crashing out in the penultimate level here on Day 1a.

Pre-flop, Heath was the only caller from the cut-off and he and the big blind went to the flop heads-up. The flop fell {5-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{9-Spades} and Heath made it 1,200 to go, the big blind calling. The turn of {3-Hearts} saw Heath weigh up his options after being checked to again. He decided to move all-in for his final 5,300, spinning it elegantly into the middle. He was quickly called, however, and his reaction ,"Rats", was brief but accurate to his hopes.

Heath held {J-Spades}{10-Clubs}, so had three outs, but was well behind his opponent's {K-Spades}{Q-Hearts} and in massive trouble. The river of {4-Hearts} confirmed his exit, and he made his way from the poker tables after wishing his opponents the best of luck.

Daniel Colman Gets the Job Done on the River

Nível 7 : 300/600, 100 ante

With 11,000 already in the pot from unknown preflop action, Sameer Aljanedi bet 5,000 from the small blind and Daniel Colman called from the cutoff.

Both players then checked the {J-Spades} turn, and Aljanedi checked for a second time on the {8-Clubs} river. Colman took the opportunity to bet 13,000, and Aljanedi thought long and hard before flashing the {q-Diamonds}{q-Spades} and laying down his hand. Colman declined to show his holdings.

Daniel Colman Busts One

Nível 7 : 300/600, 100 ante

Daniel Colman busted in third place in the $100,000 Super High Roller for $759,660 just before the dinner break. He bought straight into the Main Event and we just caught our first hand with him. Or at least the tail end of it...

On a flop of {5-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{7-Hearts}, Daniel Colman (under the gun) got it in against the player on the button. Colman had {7-Spades}{J-Spades} and was up against {K-Hearts}{J-Hearts}.

The {10-Clubs} on the turn and {9-Diamonds} on the river were blanks and Colman received a couple thousand in chips while crushing someone's dream.
