It looks like Vanessa Peng was the preflop raiser from under the gun, but we only joined the three-way flop as the dealer was spreading out . Peng's continuation bet of 2,200 got her heads-up with one opponent, but he'd end up being a pest for the remainder of the hand. Peng check-called a bet of 3,500 from the gentleman after the turn, and he bet another 5,000 following the river. Peng didn't like it, but she flicked the single calling chip into the pot.
The gentleman showed for top two pair, and Peng silently mucked, dropping back under starting stack to about 24,000.
Shawn "Lightning" Keller opened to 1,100 in late position, and was called by a player on the button, and another in the small blind. The dealer fanned , the player in the small blind checked, and Keller continued for 1,700. Only the player on the button called.
The two knuckled after the turned, and the river was the . Keller checked, and his opponent tossed out 3,900. Keller tank-folded, and saw his stack drop to 62,000 chips.
A very short stacked Greg "FBT" Mueller put his remaining 3,250 all in from the button. The small blind called, the big blind folded and the hands were tabled.
The board ran and Mueller doubled to just over 6,000. As the hand was being played out the ESPN camera swarmed his table. "That double up ended up costing me money, I'm still getting a massage," Mueller said.
The camera crew gave him a few chuckles and left the table. "Hey, don't go too far," Mueller said pointing to his stack.
Danny Suied was just the beneficiary of a pretty nice pot that nearly doubled him up.
It began with Mr. Soon-to-be-eliminated raising to 1,500, and Suied three-bet him to 4,100. The gentleman called, and they check-checked through the flop. The turn came a red , and Mr. Opponent fired out with a big bet of 10,000. Suied raised all in for the ~20,000 effective chips his opponent had left, and the call came quickly.
It was ace-king for the at-risk player, and Suied's already had him drawing dead to a chop. The river was a blank, though, and Suied is up over 80,000 after sending another player to the exit.
