How did Hakim Get the Chips?

Nível 6 : 250-500, 75 ante

There were seats to be filled on the table of Jeffrey Hakim and Ali Reza Fatehi, as Orpen Kisacikoglu and two other players had departed. The new faces included Pascal Hartmann, Andre Akkari and Dan Smith, and Hakim as well as Hartmann are the biggest stacks.

According to Hakim, he got into a five-way pot and defended the big blind with {10-}{9-}. On a flop of {8-Diamonds}{7-}{6-Diamonds}, Hakim check-raised from 5,000 to 16,500 and the initial bettor shoved for 70,000 with the {J-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} while one of the cold-callers got his remaining 7,000 behind in with kings. Hakim dodged the flush draw and claimed the big pot.

Jacobson Doubles Yaroshevsky

Nível 6 : 250-500, 75 ante

Daniel Dvoress opened the action and found calls in two spots; Martin Jacobson in the hijack and Igor Yaroshevskyy in the big blind.

Both Yaroshevskyy and Dvoress checked the flop of {9-Hearts}{4-Spades}{4-Diamonds} and Jacobson bet 2,000. Yaroshevskyy check-raised to 5,600 and Dvoress got out of the way. Jacobson called.

Yaroshevskyy bet checked on the {10-Hearts} turn and called as Jacobson bet 6,000.

The {8-Spades} hit the river and Yaroshevskyy checked again. Jacobson pushed and the decision was on Yaroshevskyy who had a little over 18,000 behind. He tanked for some time before he eventually called.

Jacobson showed {8-Clubs}{9-Clubs} but the pot went to Yaroshevskyy as the Ukrainian regular tabled {4-Clubs}{3-Clubs} for trips.

Lybaert Trending Up

Nível 6 : 250-500, 75 ante

After a player opened to 1,200 in early position and another player called, Bart Lybaert moved in for 13,000 on the button holding {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}. A player in the small blind reshoved for 19,000, the initial raiser called all in for 7,000 and the fourth player folded.

Lybaert was up against the {8-}{8-} of the small blind and the {K-}{K-} of the short stack. The board ran out {7-}{4-}{3-}{2-}{5-}, which gave Lybaert a wheel on the river to survive.

After winning a couple more smaller hands, Lybaert sits at 50,000.

Yachou Calls it Off

Nível 6 : 250-500, 75 ante

Farid Yachou and Pascal Hartmann saw a {6-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} flop in what looked to be a three-bet pot, with Yachou acting first in middle position. He checked and called 3,800. On the {10-Diamonds} turn, Yachou checked again. Hartmann shoved all in for about 19,000 effective, and Yachou quickly called.

Yachou: {10-Hearts}{7-Hearts}
Hartmann: {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}

Hartmann had the 2016 WPT Tournament of Champions winner in bad shape, and the {9-Spades} river was a blank.

Jozonis Falls

Nível 6 : 250-500, 75 ante

Lithuanian high-staker Tomas Jozonis couldn't get much going today and was down to his last 6,275. In early position, Jozonis picked up {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs} and went all in, but ran into the {A-Clubs}{K-Spades} of Anton Hrabchak.

Five blanks spelt the end for Jozonis, who quickly headed out of the tournament area.

Ensan Busts Fondrk

Nível 6 : 250-500, 75 ante

Picking up the action on the {Q-Hearts}{10-Spades}{2-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} turn, Miroslav Fondrk bet 2,500 with some 13,000 behind and Hossein Ensan moved all in to pick up a call by the player from Slovakia.

Miroslav Fondrk: {Q-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}
Hossein Ensan: {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}

Fondrk had some outs, but the {10-Diamonds} river was not among them, sending him to the rail. Ensan's roller coaster day brought him back to twice the starting stack, and the former EPT Main Event champion moved back above average.

Thorel and Yurasov Eliminated

Nível 6 : 250-500, 75 ante

Jean-Noel Thorel was all in preflop with next to no chips and a small side pot emerged between Sergio Aido and Celina Lin. The two remaining active players checked the {Q-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} flop and Aido's bet on the {6-Diamonds} turn forced a fold from Lin.

Aido tabled {Q-Diamonds}{8-Spades} for two pair and Thorel was already drawing dead with {A-Hearts}{4-Clubs}, the {3-Spades} on the river a formality.

Two tables over, Michel Pereira Marques raised and quickly called the shove of Ihar Soika for just 5,025 and tabled {K-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}. Soika was in desperate shape with {K-Spades}{Q-Clubs} but got there on a board of {J-Hearts}{10-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{A-Clubs}.

Back to the table of Aido and Lin, it was Dmitry Yurasov who was all in. Having lost most of his stack in a previous hand with Thorel, he was now the one at risk with {K-Clubs}{K-Hearts}. Unfortunately, Denes Kalo next to him had the only better pocket pair in {A-Diamonds}{A-Spades} and the board of {8-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}.

Yurasov was also done for the day, but may very well be back tomorrow for the Single-Day High Roller.
