Lau Takes From Mizrachi

[user38873] • Nível 25: 40,000-80,000, 0 ante

Ka Kwan Lau and Robert Mizrachi had tangled in several smaller pots after the two table redraw and Lau came out on top of the latest confrontation.

Both invested 240,000 in a battle of the blinds to see the {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{5-Spades} flop on which Mizrachi checked and folded to a bet of 200,000.

James Chen then chopped with Mizrachi when they both had ace-king on a board of {10-Spades}{6-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{7-Spades} to see Mizrachi drop below three million in chips.

Alex Epstein raised the button to 200,000 and Ben Tollerene got his stack of 650,000 in from the big blind. Epstein glanced over his shoulder to check the tournament info screen, shrugged and made the call.

Ben Tollerene: {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{8-Hearts}
Alex Epstein: {q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{4-Hearts}

While Tollerene hit top two on the {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{2-Clubs} flop, Epstein had picked up the nut flush draw. Sure enough, the {2-Hearts} followed on the turn and Tollerene was in need of an ace or king. The {4-Clubs} river was a blank and Epstein scored the second knockout in quick succession.

"I am on team get there," Epstein said in table chat while he raked in the pot. Tollerene was eliminated in 11th place for $92,102 and the field will combine to one table once they have nine players remaining.

Seidel Doubles Through Chen

Erik Seidel
Erik Seidel

James Chen raised first to act to 240,000 and Erik Seidel defended the big blind. On a {j-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{4-Spades} flop, Seidel checked and Chen continued for 240,000. After some consideration, Seidel announced pot and slid forward a raise to 1,000,000.

Some discussion broke out on the table on how much the check-raise could be, which happened to be 1,200,000, and Chen eventually shrugged and tossed in the chips.

Technically, Seidel was not all in yet but they tabled their cards anyway.

Erik Seidel: {k-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{4-Hearts}
James Chen: {a-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{7-Hearts}

The {2-Clubs} turn and {10-Hearts} river were no threat and Seidel doubled his stack of 1,290,000 to put a dent into Chen's steamrolling performance as of lately.

Tollerene dropped to around 450,000 and then raised the pot twice to build his short stack again.

Ka Kwan Lau opened to 200,000 and Evan Krentzman three-bet to 680,000 with 40,000 behind. The action was on Matthew Gonzales who stood up and eyed the other table.

"Clock," said James Chen and after a brief back and forth, with Robert Mizrachi pleading Gonzales' case, he was allowed some more time.

"He's usually quick," Mizrachi explained to Chen. Eventually, Gonzales folded and Lau moved all in. Krentzman called.

Ka Kwan Lau: {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{2-Spades}
Evan Krentzman: {k-Spades}{q-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{8-Spades}

Krentzman flopped two pair on the {10-Hearts}{6-Spades}{q-Diamonds} flop. The turn was the {2-Diamonds} and Krentzman clapped his hands together in apparent celebration after the {6-Diamonds} river. He leant forward wiggling his two pair on the table.

However, Lau had made a full house - sixes full of deuces - and Krentzman was eliminated.
