Savelyev Wins the Pot Like a Candle in the Wind

Dmitry Savelyev
Dmitry Savelyev

Derek Lerner raised to 2,800 in the hijack and was called Dmitry Savelyev in the small blind as well as by the player in the big blind. On the {A-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} flop, it was checked to Lerner who led for 4,300. Savelyev came back with a check-raise to 10,300 which got the big blind out of the way. Lerner waited for a bit before he flicked his cards into the muck which gave the pot to Savelyev.

After the hand, Savelyev said, “I had a really good song going, Candle in the Wind, I had to win” and Lerner asked Savelyev if that meant he was bluffing. Savelyev responded by asking Lerner why he keeps on making him out to be a bluffer and the big blind noted that he hadn’t seen Savelyev miss yet. Lerner chimed in again saying Savelyev did bluff and Savelyev said he just wanted to know where he has at and would have folded if Lerner re-raised. In any case, Savelyev took down the pot to hit the 300,000 chip mark.

Musumeci Stuck in Reverse

Amanda Musumeci

Amanda Musumeci began the day with an above-average stack, but she has been unable to gain any momentum here on Day 2a. First, she doubled a short-stacked Donny Mizrachi when she jammed from the small blind with {K-}{J-} only to have Mizrachi snap her off with {Q-}{Q-}.

A short time later, an under-the-gun player raised to 2,800 and found callers in an early-position opponent and Musumeci in middle position. It was three-way action to the {A-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{5-Spades} flop, which saw the original raiser bet 4,100. The middle-position player folded, Musumeci called, and the {8-Clubs} hit the turn.

Both players checked the {8-Clubs} turn and then the UTG fired out 15,200 on the {10-Hearts} river. Musumeci quickly folded, dropping to 93,000 in the process.

Pillai Bests Baker

[user101598]

David Baker opened to 2,600 from the cutoff, Shankar Pillai three-bet to 6,200 on the button, and Baker four-bet to 16,100. Pillai tank-called.

The dealer fanned {6-Hearts}{5-Spades}{9-Clubs}, and both players checked. The {9-Spades} turned, and Baker led for 18,200. Pillai called.

The river was the {4-Clubs}, Baker checked, and Pillai tossed out 22,700. Baker looked unhappy, but made the call anyway. Pillai rolled over two black kings, Baker mucked, and Pillai pulled in the pot.

Hachem Hauls One in

Tony Hachem
Tony Hachem

We weren't there for the action, but when we recently walked by Tony Hachem's table we noticed he had a lot of chips in front of him all of a sudden. We asked the table what occurred and this is what we were told.

A player in early position preflop bet out, and received two callers. Action then made it to Hachem who grabbed a stack of orange chips and plopped them down in the middle of the table. The initial raiser then snapped all in. The other two players who were in the hand scattered away folding as quickly as they could and Hachem made the call. Hachem held {A-}{A-} and his opponent tabled {K-}{K-}. The flop, turn, and river blanked out for both players and it was Hachem's pair of aces that came out ahead. Crossing the 200,000 mark Tony Hachem is quickly making his presence known here as they day comes to an end on Day 2B.

A Snapshot of Lee and Hachem

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

Joe Hachem has been moved over to Doug Lee's table, taking a seat just to the left of Lee.

The two were in conversation when a hand arose in which it folded around to Hachem on the button, and Hachem raised to 2,500. The small blind folded, and as the short-stacked player on the big blind tanked a photographer started taking pictures of Hachem. Lee cheekily held up two fingers for rabbit ears behind Hachem for a moment, getting a brief laugh from the others and a grin from the 2005 WSOP Main Event champ.

Finally the big blind pushed all in for about 30,000, and Hachem said "yeah, yeah, whatever" as he tossed his cards in.

On the next hand, Lee raised to 2,800 from the hijack seat and only Hachem called from the cutoff. The flop came {A-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{10-Clubs}, and when Lee continued with a bet Hachem folded his {6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} face up. Lee showed one card -- the {A-Diamonds} -- and collected the small pot.

Lee has 136,000 now, while Hachem has 40,000.

"I Don't Want To Lie, But You're Going To Make Me Lie"

Patrik Antonius
Patrik Antonius

We just picked up the ever so notable Patrik Antonius (and his masseuse) in the tan section of the Amazon Room. We came in on a hand where on a board of {7-Spades}{3-Hearts}{q-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{a-Hearts} and with about 15,000 in the pot, a player in the cutoff bet out for 3,500. Antonius made a big raise to 16,700, and after some thought, the player folded to him. Antonius began stacking his chips and the player asked him, "Did you have it? Did you have anything at all?" Antonius smirked a little bit and one of the players on the table called out, "Aww look he's trying so hard not to laugh but he can't." Antonius then gave a laugh and said to them, "I don't want to lie, but you're going to make me lie" which gave the table a good laugh. He is up to 260,000.
