Raymer in Trouble

[user249920] • Level 26: 30,000-60,000, 0 ante

Greg Raymer defended his big blind from a raise by Calen McNeil out of the small, and he called every street as the board came {7-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{a-Spades}.

McNeil showed down {3-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{5-Spades} for a wheel, and he scooped the pot.

The next hand, McNeil quartered Raymer to leave Raymer under two big bets.

Adam Coats
Adam Coats

Jim Bucci raised first to act and Adam Coats called. Nick Kost three-bet it and Bucci called. Coats made it four bets and Kost capped the action with a fifth bet. Both Bucci and Coats called and we had 450,000 in the pot pre-flop.

The flop came {6-Spades}{2-Hearts}{2-Spades} and Kost led out and was called by Bucci. Coats called and was all in for his last 20,000. The turn was the {Q-Spades} and Kost bet again. This time Bucci folded and the cards were turned over:

Kost {A-Spades}{9-Spades}{7-Spades}{2-Clubs} for the nut flush
Coats {A-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} for trip deuces with a low draw

The river was the {K-Hearts} and Coats was unable to improve and was eliminated in 8th place.

Raymer Dodges Tons of Outs

[user249920] • Level 26: 30,000-60,000, 0 ante

Greg Raymer three-bet from the big blind over an Alex Luneau open from the cutoff. Luneau called, and the flop came {4-Clubs}{j-Spades}{k-Spades}. Luneau raised Raymer's bet and the two got it in for Raymer's stack.

Raymer: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{5-Hearts}
Luneau: {a-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{7-Spades}{8-Spades}

Raymer asked for running hearts, but a {3-Diamonds} turn gave Luneau outs for the nut low. A {3-Clubs} river was a total brick though, and Raymer's aces up were good for a double.

Series of Big Hands

• Level 26: 30,000-60,000, 0 ante

We had a series of big hands go down in back-to-back-to-back hands. In the first hand, Greg Raymer would get crippled down to 120,000 when he would call Calen McNeil's pre-flop four-bet and then fold on the river on a {A-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{5-Spades}{5-Diamonds} board.

The next hand would see McNeil crippled Steve Chanthabouasy when he would hit a wheel on a {Q-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{6-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} board with his {A-Hearts}{K-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{2-Clubs} to scoop the pot. Chanthabouasy would show {A-Clubs}{A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{4-Clubs}.

Chanthabouasy would double up the next hand against Alex Luneau with {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{2-Clubs} against Lunea's {Q-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} on a {J-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} board to give him a Broadway straight.

McNeil Scoops Kost in Three-Bet Pot

[user249920] • Level 26: 30,000-60,000, 0 ante

Nick Kost opened for a raise in the cutoff and got three-bet by Calen McNeil on the button. Kost check-called the first two streets before it went check-check on the river as the board read {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}{3-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}.

Kost: {a-}{q-}{j-}{j-}
McNeil: {a-Spades}{4-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{q-Spades}

McNeil took high with two pair and low with a live six.

Lunea Scoops Coats

• Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 0 ante

Adam Coats limped from early position, Alex Luneau raised and it was folded back to Coats who made the call. The flop came {8-Spades}{4-Clubs}{Q-Clubs} and Coats check-called a bet from Luneau. He would do the same on the {K-Spades} turn and the {3-Hearts} river and would muck his hand when Luneau turned over {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} for two pair, kings and fours, and the nut low.

Alex Luneau 850,000 145,000

Konstantin Puchkov Eliminated in 9th Place ($20,181)

Konstantin Puchkov - 9th Place
Konstantin Puchkov - 9th Place

Greg Raymer raised on the button, and Konstantin Puchkov defended his big blind. Puchkov check-raised the {3-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{j-Diamonds} flop, and Raymer called. The {k-Hearts} turned, and Puchkov bet 32,000, everything he had. Raymer called off for 2,000 less.

Raymer: {a-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{k-Clubs}
Puchkov: {a-Spades}{7-Spades}{j-Clubs}{6-Spades}

Raymer's two pair was ahead, and the {a-} river gave him better aces up than his opponent. Nobody had a low.

The next hand Puchkov was all in from the small blind. Calen McNeil and Kal Raichura saw the {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{8-Spades} flop for three bets, and McNeil check-called. McNeil check-raised the {k-Clubs} turn, forcing Raichura to fold.

He showed {a-Clubs}{3-Spades}{6-Spades}{j-Spades} for a bluff to take the side pot, and Puchkov was a favorite to survive with {a-Spades}{3-Spades}{4-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}. The {q-Hearts} river gave McNeil broadway though, and Puchkov was the first to exit the official final table.

Chanthabouasy Doubles Through Puchkov

• Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 0 ante

Konstantin Puchkov raised pre-flop and Steve Chanthabouasy made the call. The flop came {A-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} and Puchkov bet. Chanthabouasy made the call. The turn was the {10-Hearts} and Puchkov would check-call Chanthabouasy's bet. The river was the {2-Hearts} and Puchkov would check-call Chanthabouasy's all in bet of 43,000.

Chanthabouasy {A-Spades}{10-Clubs}{4-Spades}{4-Clubs} for aces up with a live four was good enough to take the entire pot as Puchkow had {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{7-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}.
