The Blue Deck

[user101598] • Nível 10: 600-1,200, 200 ante

Someone accidentally bent one of the cards in the red deck during a hand on Table 352, and a tournament director peaked at the card, then went to get a replacement. The action in the hand folded to a gentleman on the button who made it perfectly clear that he wasn't acting until a new card was brought back.

"Why?" a short-stacked player asked him.

"I don't want to play with the blue deck," the man responded.

"Some of us are short," the player returned angrily. "We're missing hands because of this."

The player then called the clock, and about 20 seconds in, the floorperson returned with a new card. The gentleman who was waiting folded, and so too did everyone else. The dealer flipped the new card over, it was the {10-Hearts}, and then shot the floorperson a confused look.

Evidently it was the wrong card. The red deck went into the well, the blue deck was fanned onto the felt, and the entire table erupted with laughter.

Savage's Set

Matt Savage

Martin Torheim started the action on this last hand we witnessed by betting out 3,000 from early position preflop. A player on the button called, as well as a big blinded Matt Savage.

The flop came {3-Hearts}{5-Spades}{10-Clubs} and Savage broke in the action by checking. Torheim opted to bet, and made it 5,300. The player on the button called and Savage very quickly threw out a raise of 13,000. Torheim hesitated briefly and then threw his cards in the muck. The button player sat joyfully upset at the spot he was in. After a few moments of mild contemplation the button folded with a smile on his face, and Savage raked in the pot. Savage even showed his cards {3-Clubs}{3-Spades} to the table to much delight.

Don't Mess with JZ Scrilla

[user153638]

Jerid "JZ Scrilla" Zewin raised to 5,300 from middle position only to have the player on the button three-bet to 15,000. The blinds got out of the way and after a moment's though, Zewin splashed in the call. Both players proceeded to check the {8-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{10-Spades} flop and {K-Hearts} turn, but when the {6-Spades} peeled off on the river, Zewin bet a modest 5,500.

The button quickly called and Zewin confidently turned over {K-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} for runner-runner two pair. The button just stared blankly at the board before sending his cards to the muck. JZ Scrilla is up to 120,000.

D’Angelo Rakes in a Big One

Ryan D'Angelo
Ryan D'Angelo

We don’t know when the chips went in but Ryan D’Angelo just won a pot of around 180,000 on a {10-Spades}{5-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} board.

It appeared as though a player who was all in for around 48,000 at some point in the hand was eliminated holding {J-Clubs}{10-Clubs} for a pair of tens and a missed flush draw on the flop. Jean-Robert Bellande held {9-}{9-} for a pair of nines while Ryan D’Angelo had {A-}{10-} for a pair of tens with an ace kicker that was best. The pot brought D’Angelo well across the 400,000 chip mark making him among the chip leader while Bellande took a step back.

Saul Wins Some Back

Kevin Saul raised under the gun to 3,200 and was called by the player on the button. The flop brought {3-Spades}{J-Hearts}{9-Hearts} and Saul continued out for 4,100. His opponent raised to 10,700 and Saul made the call.

The turn brought {4-Diamonds} and Saul led out again, this time making it 14,500. His opponent pushed out a raise once again, making it 35,400 to go. Once again Saul made the call.

The {8-Diamonds} came on the river and Saul put out a rather small bet of 10,800. His opponent tanked before finally mucking his hand, bringing Saul up to 451,000 in chips.

Not Much vs. Lisandro's Lots

[user38338] • Nível 10: 600-1,200, 200 ante

Jeffrey Lisandro opened with a raise to 3,100 from early position, and it folded back around to the big blind who called. Both checked the {9-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{10-Clubs} flop and {4-Clubs} turn.

The river brought the {8-Diamonds} and another check from Lisandro's opponent. Lisandro bet of 3,500. His opponent immediately grabbed the calling chips and began shaking them in his hands, bobbing his head forward and looking at the utterly motionless Lisandro. Finally he tossed them forward to make the call.

Lisandro opened his hand -- {A-Clubs}{J-Clubs} -- and the table laughed in response. His opponent kept nodding, and it sounded like he said he'd made a straight on the river.

"I didn't think you had much," said Lisandro. "But give 'em time to find something," he added.

Lisandro has 94,000 as we move into the last half-hour of play for the night.

Spitzberg Avoids Further Skirmish with Kerstetter

[user38338] • Nível 10: 600-1,200, 200 ante

Paul Spitzberg raised from middle position to 3,200 and got one caller in Jamie Kerstetter from the button. The flop came {8-Spades}{7-Spades}{K-Diamonds} and both checked. The turn was the {8-Diamonds}. Spitzberg bet 6,100, then Kerstetter promptly raised to 15,500. Spitzberg took just a moment to consider, then let his hand go.

Kerstetter sits with about 110,000. Meanwhile, Spitzberg still sports one of the bigger stacks in the immediate vicinity with 308,000.
