Bucci Doubles Again

[user249920] • Level 28: 50,000-100,000, 0 ante

Jim Bucci raised in the small blind and was called by Nick Kost. Bucci bet and got raised on the {3-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{7-Hearts} flop, and he got his last chips in.

Bucci: {a-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{k-Clubs}
Kost: [ts9d9c8]

Bucci had a nice draw with the nut low and the better flush draw, as well as bigger cards to make pairs. The {5-Diamonds} assured him of half of the pot, and the {4-Clubs} river gave him a flush for all of it.

McNeil Getting Short, Kost Takes Chip Lead

• Level 28: 50,000-100,000, 0 ante

Nick Kost opened for a raise and Calen McNeil and Jim Bucci called. The flop came {Q-Spades}{10-Spades}{6-Diamonds} and Bucci and Kost checked to McNeil who bet. Bucci and Kost called. The turn was the {9-Diamonds} and it was checked to McNeil who bet a 2nd time. Bucci got out of the way but Kost called. The river was the {7-Spades} and it went check-check.

Kost showed {A-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{2-Hearts} for two pair, queens and sixes. McNeil peeked back at his cards, looked at the board, and pushed his hand into the muck.

Bucci Scoops Raichura

[user249920] • Level 28: 50,000-100,000, 0 ante

Kal Raichura raised the button and called a three-bet from small blind Jim Bucci. Both players checked the {k-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} flop, and Bucci check-called the {8-Clubs} turn. The {3-Diamonds} river led two more checks.

Bucci's {a-Spades}{q-Spades}{8-Spades}{2-Clubs} gave him the nut low and a pair of eights, but all Raichura could muster was a pair of fours with {a-}{4-}{j-}{10-}.

From Outhouse to Penthouse, Raichura Takes Chip Lead

• Level 28: 50,000-100,000, 0 ante

Calen McNeil opened the action for a raise. Kal Raichura three-bet, Jim Bucci called, Nick Kost folded the big blind, and McNeil called. The flop came {K-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{5-Clubs} and it was checked to Raichura who bet. He was called by both players. The turn was the {6-Spades} and it was checked around. The river was the {10-Diamonds} and Bucci led out with a bet inducing a fold from McNeil. Raichura made the call and would take down the pot when his {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{3-Clubs} for the nut flush was better than Bucci's {A-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{6-Hearts}{2-Clubs} for trip 6's. With that pot, Raichura moved into the chip lead and Bucci trails the pack as the short stack.

Raichura would take another 300,000+ from McNeil a few hands later when he made a full house against McNeil's aces up to add to his chip lead and threaten McNeil's shot at winning back-to-back bracelets in this event.

Kost Takes a Chunk From McNeil

[user249920] • Level 28: 50,000-100,000, 0 ante

Calen McNeil raised under the gun, and Nick Kost three-bet from the big blind. McNeil made it four bets, and Kost called. Kost check-called the {9-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{8-Spades} flop, but he fired out on the {8-Hearts} turn. McNeil called, and the {4-Diamonds} prompted two checks.

Kost's {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} for aces with a king and a seven-deuce low bested the {a-Spades}{10-Spades}{10-Hearts}{2-Spades} of McNeil.

Raichura Crippled but Doubles Next Hand

• Level 28: 50,000-100,000, 0 ante

Kal Raichura was crippled in a hand against Calen McNeil when he called bets on the flop, turn, and river on a {Q-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{10-Clubs} board and McNeil showed aces up with {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{6-Clubs}. He would double up the next hand when he would get his last 165,000 in from the small blind and hit a full house. He's still the short stack and has just over three big bets.
