Hand #48: Seiver Doubles Through Colman

Webjoker • Level 21: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

Hand #48: Action folded to Daniel Colman in the small blind. The EPT Monte Carlo Super High Roller winner found the {Q-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} and pushed all in to put Scott Seiver in the big blind at risk. Seiver made the call with the {A-Spades}{4-Spades} and a 2,190,000-chip pot emerged.

The {A-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} flop helped Seiver, but Colman did have outs. The {10-Clubs} on the turn wasn't one of the cards he needed to hit, and the {3-Spades} on the river was a blank as well to give Seiver the double up.

Hand #46: Daniel Colman raised and took down the blinds and antes.

hand #47: Scott Seiver opened with a raise to 185,000 with the {A-Clubs}{10-Hearts}. Vladimir Troyanovskiy reraised to 450,000 on the button with the {J-Clubs}{J-Spades}, and then Sven Reichardt reraised all in for 2.505 million with the {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds} out of the small blind. Play folded back to Troyanovskiy, and he went into the tank.

After a minute and a half in the tank, Troyanovskiy folded, and Reichardt won the pot.

Hands #43-45: More Shoves from Trickett

[user68268] • Level 20: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Hand #43: From under the gun, Sam Trickett raised all in for 1.185 million with the {A-Spades}{K-Clubs}. Olivier Busquet was in the small blind with the {A-Diamonds}{8-Spades} and requested a count on the shove before folding. Morten Klein folded from the big blind, and Trickett won the pot.

Hand #44: Action folded to Klein in the small blind, and he raised to 175,000 with the {J-Clubs}{5-Clubs}. Trickett reraised all in from the big blind with the {A-Spades}{8-Diamonds} for 1.365 million. Klein quickly folded.

Hand #45: Sven Reichardt raised from under the gun to 160,000, and Vladimir Troyanovskiy called from the big blind with the {9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}. The flop came down {K-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}, and Troyanovskiy check-folded to a bet of 150,000 from Reichardt.

Hand #42: Sam Trickett opened to 160,000 with {7-Clubs}{6-Clubs} from early position. Next to him was Dan Shak with {A-Spades}{8-Spades} and he three bet to 425,000.

Action folded to Olivier Busquet in the big blind, and he looked interested. "Aces, that's why!" shouted commentator James Hartigan as the graphics showed Busquet had {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}. Busquet made it 930,000 and Trickett got out of the way. Shak pushed all in, and Busquet snap called.

Shak shook his head a little bit and awaited the flop as he saw he was far behind. The {5-Clubs}{3-Spades}{7-Spades} flop was good for Shak, but the {Q-Clubs} on the turn and {Q-Diamonds} on the river were of no help.

Hand #37: Daniel Colman raised to 160,000 from middle position with the {K-Spades}{J-Hearts}, and Scott Seiver called from the hijack seat with the {8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}. The flop came down {K-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}, and Colman checked. Seiver bet 175,000, and Colman made the call.

The turn was the {Q-Clubs}, and both players checked to see the {A-Spades} land on the river. Colman checked again, and Seiver tossed forward 275,000. Colman went into the tank and eventually called with the best hand, and he won the pot.

Hand #38: Seiver raised to 175,000 with the {K-Spades}{Q-Hearts} and won the pot.

hand #39: Colman opened from under the gun to 175,000 with the {7-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} and won the pot.

Hand #40: In the cutoff seat, Dan Shak raised to 175,000 with the {J-Hearts}{10-Hearts}. Vladimir Troyanovskiy called on the button with the {K-Spades}{Q-Clubs}, and everyone else folded before the flop came down {7-Spades}{5-Spades}{4-Clubs}. Shak and Troyanovskiy both checked.

The turn was the {7-Hearts}, keeping Troyanovskiy in the lead with king high. Shak decided to take the lead, though, and bet 300,000. Troyanovskiy eyed him for a bit, but then folded, and Shak won the pot.

Hand #41: Dan Shak raised to 175,000 from the hijack seat with the {A-Hearts}{10-Hearts}, and Sven Reichardt reraised to 450,000 on the button. Play folded back to Shak, and he folded, giving Reichardt the pot.

Hands #34-36: Olivier Busquet Hits Miraculous Runner-Runner to Double

Hand #34: Vladimir Troyanovskiy opened to 175,000 from the hijack with {Q-Diamonds}{9-Spades}. Everyone folded their marginal hands, and Troyanovskiy took it down uncontested.

Hand #35: Troyanovskiy opened with {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades} in early position to 175,000, and again took it down without anyone putting up a fight.

Hand #36: Sven Reichardt opened for 160,000 from middle position and Olivies Busquet three-bet all in for 1,545,000 from the button. Reichardt instantly called. Busquet had {A-Spades}{2-Spades} and was in big trouble against Reichardt's {K-Diamonds}{K-Spades}.

Commentators Joe Stapleton and James Hartigan remembered Busquet's eighth-place finish in the EPT Monte Carlo Super High Roller: "History likely to repeat itself, as Reichardt almost flops him dead. Less than one percent equity," they said after the {8-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{K-Clubs} flop gave Reichardt a full house.

Scott Seiver wasn't convinced of Busquet's nearing bustout though, and talked about the option of getting runner-runner eights. "Or ace-ace!" he added after the {A-Hearts} hit the turn.

It was still a long shot for Busquet, but he did have a chance. The {A-Diamonds} hit the river and the table and commentators were in shock, though some acted like they had seen it many times before. With their online backgrounds, they most likely have.
