Team PokerStars Update

Posted 2010-11-13 GMT+8
Bryan Huang is leading the charge for Team PokerStars
Bryan Huang is leading the charge for Team PokerStars

Unlike yesterday where there wasn't a single Team PokerStars Pro representative, today sees five of them in the field, and one stuck in bed sick.

Tony Hachem kicked a goal early for the team after he found a double up with Kings, but since then he has slowly been leaking chips to sit with 25,600.

Celina Lin and Tae-Joon Noh are two Team PokerStars Pro Asia members that are looking for that vital hand to accumulate some much-needed chips as they both sit with 10,200 and 14,000 respectively.

However it is Bryan Huang and Raymond Wu who are waving the flag the hardest for the online giants as they sit with very healthy stacks of 51,000 and 35,000 respectively. Huang has been bounced around a few tables already, while Wu has found his groove on his starting table - although his chip trend has represented a roller coaster at times.

The sixth member that was expected to play today is 2005 World Champion Joe Hachem - who as mentioned earlier - is currently sick in bed.

With two more levels remaining in the day, it is expected that Joe may make an appearance, but if not, the remainder of his team will be doing their best to carry Team PokerStars into Day 2!

Zheng Flush'd Out

Jackson Zheng

Speaking to tablemate Gokhan Kursunlu, we were detailed the recent elimination of Jackson Zheng.

Holding {A-}{A-}, Zheng saw most of his chips enter the pot on the turn after being check-raised by a player holding {Q-Spades}{10-Spades} for a turned flush.

The river blanked out, and when the action was checked to him, Zheng moved all in, only to be snap-called by his opponent.

Small One for Noh

Posted 2010-11-13 GMT+8

Three players limped in to see a {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} flop fall with Tae-Joon Noh leading out for 500 from the big blind.

The player on the button made the call as the small blind passed before Noh check-called 1,000 when the {6-Diamonds} landed on the turn.

Both players checked the {A-Clubs} on the river with Noh's {5-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} besting his opponent's {3-Diamonds}{3-Spades} as he climbed to 15,000 in chips.

Raj Exits

Raj Ramakrishnan
Raj Ramakrishnan

Facing a raise to 600 from under the gun, Raj Ramakrishnan moved all in for 11,850.

An opponent in the cutoff four-bet all in for 24,150 to force the blinds and the original raiser to fold while putting the 2009 Aussie Millions final tablist at risk.

Ramakrishnan: {K-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}
Opponent: {A-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}

Unfortunately for Ramakrishnan, the board ran out {2-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} to see his tournament end well short of a Day 2 berth.

Jacks for Huang

Posted 2010-11-13 GMT+8

With the action folding round to Bryan Huang in the small blind, he bumped it up to 900 and found a caller in the big blind.

Huang fired out 1,000 on the {Q-Spades}{10-Spades}{8-Diamonds} flop with his opponent making the call before the {10-Clubs} landed on the turn and Huang checked it through. The big blind paused for a moment before splashing the pot with a bet of 2,500.

Making the call, Huang then proceeded to check the {10-Hearts} on the river before being faced with a 6,000-chip bet.

Now taking his time to contemplate the decision at hand, Huang would eventually make the call tabling his {J-Spades}{J-Diamonds} to best his opponent's {K-Spades}{9-Diamonds} while moving up to 43,500 in chips.

Carnevale Looking for a Birthday Present

Posted 2010-11-13 GMT+8
Happy Birthday Rennie!
Happy Birthday Rennie!

On a flop of {J-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{A-Spades}, Rennie Carnevale called a 1,800-chip bet before both he and his opponent checked the {K-Spades} on the turn.

With the dealer dropping the {J-Clubs} on the river, Carnevale's opponent shook his head seemingly in disappointment before checking as Carnevale fired out a bet of 1,800.

His opponent went into the tank for several moments before eventually folding as Carnevale raked in the pot to move to 35,000.

For the ANZPT Adelaide Champion, he is not just looking to make his name on the International circuit, but also bring home a very expensive birthday present as today is Carnevale's 22nd birthday!

Level 4 started


En Ain't Making Moves!

Richard En
Richard En

John Maklouf opened to 600 and found one caller before Richard En three-bet to 2,050 from the button.

The blinds agonized over their fold before Maklouf and the player caught in the middle quickly kicked their cards to the muck.

"I'm not a move player!" added En as he looked in the direction of the big blind who spent the most time deliberating over his hand.

"I don't make moves!" added En once again as he collected the pot to move over his starting stack. En now sits with 20,300 in chips.

Wu Chips Back Up

Posted 2010-11-13 GMT+8

The always aggressive and dangerous Raymond Wu has recovered slightly after recently doubling Nathaniel Seet.

On a flop of {10-Spades}{4-Spades}{8-Diamonds}, Wu fired out 1,275 only to have one player raise to 2,550 while another folded.

Wu made the call, and when the {K-Diamonds} landed on the turn, he checked the action over to his opponent who opted to fire out 3,500.

Wu responded by moving all in for 14,200 to force a fold from his opponent as he climbed back to 29,000 in chips.
