Event #23: $1,500 Eight Game Mix

Dia 1 Começado

Another Test of Versatility Starts Today as Event #23: $1,500 Eight Game Mix Kicks Off

Following the $1,500 versions of Dealer's Choice and H.O.R.S.E. events that have both found their winners earlier this week, the mixed-game action at 2019 World Series of Poker now moves on to Event #23: $1,500 Eight Game Mix, a three-day event which starts today at 3 p.m. local time.

The variety of disciplines included in 8-Game allows the participants to showcase their prowess in both limit and big bet games with the traditional H.O.R.S.E. disciplines enhanced by the presence of No-Limit Hold'em, Pot-Limit Omaha, and 2-7 Triple Draw. The event rules allow players an optional single re-entry should they need it.

This year marks the fifth time the $1,500 8-Game Mix has been included among bracelet events, with the debut edition won by none other than Phil Ivey back in 2014. The tournament then had a one-year hiatus before returning to the schedule in 2016, and it has become a permanent fixture ever since then.

The turnouts for the event undoubtedly prove the popularity of the $1,500 8-Game. Each of the previous four appearances on WSOP schedule resulted in a field attacking 500 entries, always falling just short of the mark. Paul Volpe, Ron Ware, and Philip Long have followed in Ivey's footsteps and emerged as champions.

Long's Strong Board Is No Good

Nível 1 : 100/200, 0 ante

Razz

Defending champion Philip Long was betting into the pot by the time the action was picked up. Long's board was tasty as he had three wheel cards out. But so was the board of Lisa Ahumada who called with three wheel cards of her own.

"Wow, strong boards," Long observed.

Long peeled a nine and Ahumada a ten and Ahumada call two more bets, prompting a showdown. Long announced he had a seven but his smooth seven finished second to Ahumada's rough six.

Long: {7-}{10-}{4-} / {3-}{2-}{a-}{9-}
Ahumada: {q-}{4-}{6-} / {5-}{3-}{2-}{10-}

Chow Turns a Set

Nível 1 : 100/200, 0 ante

Limit Hold'em

Gregory Donatelli raised in the first position and his neighbor Michael Chow called. Kenna James joined them from the small blind and they went to the {j-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} flop where James led out, receiving two calls.

The turn was the {2-Diamonds} and the action was checked to Chow who bet and both of his opponents called to see the {10-Clubs} river. Chow fired one more bet in position and only Donatelli looked him up.

James predicted Chow would roll over a flush but he showed {2-Clubs}{2-Spades} instead. Nonetheless, his hand was strong enough to beat Donatelli.
