Hastoo Locks Up the Double on the Flop

• Level 26: 30,000-60,000, 7,000 ante

Omaha Hi-Low

A short-stacked Terrence Hastoo limped from the small blind and then called when John Kabbaj raised to 60,000 from the big. Both players checked the {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} flop, and then Kabbaj bet after Hastoo checked the {4-Clubs} turn. Hastoo only had 29,000 back and called it off with the {j-Spades}{3-Spades}{5-Hearts}{2-Clubs} for flopped quads. Of course that was good against Kabbaj's {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}, and he was pushed the pot after the {10-Hearts} was run out on the river.

Joe Tehan

Omaha Hi-Low

Joe Tehan raised from the button and found a customer in Thomas Keller in the big blind. The {2-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{6-Hearts} flop turned into a disaster for Tehan as he got the remainder of his stack in with just under four bets and was snap called.

Tehan: {2-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{7-Clubs}
Keller: {A-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}

Keller had top pair, the nut low and the nut flush draw. The {Q-Hearts} turn saw Tehan drawing slim as he needed to improve to a full house in order to avoid elimination. However, the {J-Spades} river was a blank for him and he has been eliminated in fourth place.

Red Alert For Hastoo

[user38873] • Level 26: 30,000-60,000, 7,000 ante

Omaha Hi-Low

John Kabbaj raised to 60,000 from early position and Terrence Hastoo called out of the big blind to see the {5-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{Q-Spades} flop. Both players checked and then Hastoo check-called 60,000 on the {5-Spades} turn. The {9-Hearts} river completed the board and Hastoo quickly check-called the 60,000 of Kabbaj.

"You have me out-kickered?" he asked when the Brit announced trip fives and that was indeed the case.

Hastoo: {3-Spades}{2-}{5-}{6-}
Kabbaj: {5-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{K-}

The ace kicker won the pot and Hastoo now needs a miracle very soon.

Aces Take It For Keller

[user38873] • Level 26: 30,000-60,000, 7,000 ante

Stud Hi-Low

So far there was barely any action in the seven-card stud orbits. Just now we saw a bigger pot with Thomas Keller betting through to sixth and then him and Joe Tehan checked seventh.

Tehan: {x-}{x-} / {7-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{J-Diamonds} / {x-} muck
Keller: {A-Spades}{A-Hearts} / {Q-Spades}{K-Spades}{5-Clubs}{8-Clubs} / {7-Hearts}

The Chips Are Flying

• Level 26: 30,000-60,000, 7,000 ante

Omaha Hi-Low

The blinds and limits are quite high, so each pot has the potential to swing fortunes.

In a recent hand, Christopher McHugh raised to 60,000 from the cutoff and then called when John Kabbaj three-bet to 90,000 from the big blind. When the flop came down {7-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{a-Clubs}, Kabbaj bet 30,000 and then called when McHugh raised to 60,000.

The {Q-Diamonds} turn saw Kabbaj check-call a bet of 60,000 and then both players checked the {4-Hearts} river. McHugh tabled the {a-Hearts}{a-Spades}{2-Clubs}{j-Spades} for a live-deuce low and trip aces. That was good for 3/4 the pot as McHugh matched his low.

Hastoo And Keller Take One Down

[user38873] • Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Omaha Hi-Low

Terrence Hastoo raised to 50,000 and Joe Tehan made the call to see the {9-Hearts}{4-Spades}{8-Spades} flop. Tehan check-called 25,000 and then both checked the {K-Hearts} turn. After the {K-Spades} river, Tehan checked once more and called off the 50,000 by Hastoo to muck when shown {A-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{10-Spades}{9-Spades}.

Thomas Keller raised to 50,000 and Tehan called, history repeated after the {7-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{9-Clubs} flop when he check-called 25,000. The {5-Hearts} turn was checked through and this time Tehan check-folded after the {2-Diamonds} river.

Erik Seidel Eliminated in 6th Place ($41,230)

Erik Seidel is eliminated in 6th place

Stud Hi-Low

Erik Seidel began the day as chip leader, but his quest for his ninth World Series of Poker gold bracelet just came to an end in sixth place.

It happened when Thomas "Thunder" Keller completed with the {A-Hearts} and Seidel raised to 50,000 with the {7-Hearts}. Keller three-bet to 75,000, Seidel called, and it was off to fourth street. Keller bet, Seidel called, and then Keller bet 50,000 on fifth. Seidel only had 28,000 back, and he seemed extremely hesitant to put it in. That said, he still did.

Seidel: {7-Diamonds}{6-Spades} / {7-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{5-Spades} / {3-Spades}
Keller: {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts} / {a-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{10-Spades}{9-Diamonds} / {9-Spades}

It was a bad spot for Seidel as his sevens were dominated by the aces and tens of Keller. Seidel had running straight and low options, but the {5-Spades} on sixth left him looking for either a five or seven on seventh street. That didn't happen though and he'll have to settled for sixth place and $41,230.
