Days:

Four-Bet from Ryan

Posted 2011-01-28 GMT+12 • Level 20: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Michael Ryan raised from the button to 35,000. Sorel Mizzi reraised to 88,000 from the small blind. Ryan four-bet to 210,000 and Mizzi gave it up.

Ship 500K to Mizzi

Posted 2011-01-28 GMT+12 • Level 20: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

On the flop of {8-Spades}{7-Hearts}{3-Clubs}, Sorel Mizzi fired 50,000 and Sam Razavi made the call to see the {6-Hearts} fall on the turn. Mizzi raised the bet amount to 135,000 and slid it into the middle. Razavi called again.

The river completed the board with the {Q-Diamonds}. Mizzi fired 316,000 and was instantly called by Razavi.

Mizzi tabled the nizzletons with the {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}. Razavi showed the {3-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} for bottom set.

Gorr Spikes Double (Again)

Posted 2011-01-28 GMT+12 • Level 20: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Chris Moorman opened to 38,000 from under the gun only to have David Gorr three-bet the button to 113,000.

Moorman responded by making it 217,000 only to have Gorr move all in for 752,000 as Moorman made the call.

Gorr: {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}
Moorman: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Spades}

With Gorr in a flip for his tournament life, the {K-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{5-Hearts} flop would see him soar out to the lead before the {5-Spades} on the turn close the hand in his favor.

The meaningless {4-Spades} completed the river as Gorr moves to 1,538,000 while Moorman slips to 1,950,000 in chips.

Gorr Granted a Double

Posted 2011-01-28 GMT+12 • Level 20: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Chris Moorman opened to 38,000 from the button and both Jeff Rossiter and David Gorr defended their blinds.

Rossiter checked the {3-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{3-Clubs} flop before Gorr moved his 320,000-chip stack into the pot as Moorman quickly folded. Rossiter however made the call to put the local tournament veteran at risk.

Gorr: {Q-Hearts}{10-Spades}
Rossiter: {A-Clubs}{5-Clubs}

With Gorr needing to fade any club or ace, the {3-Spades} on the turn would mean a club falling on the river useless as now only an ace on the river would be his downfall.

Fortunately for Gorr, the river landed the {7-Hearts} to see him double through to 760,000 and leave Rossiter with roughly 1,395,000 in chips.

Shane Sigsbee Eliminated in 11th Place (AUD$100,000)

Posted 2011-01-28 GMT+12 • Level 20: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Shane Sigsbee - 11th Place
Shane Sigsbee - 11th Place

Shane Sigsbee open-shoved for 320,000 from the small blind and Chris Moorman made the call from the big blind.

Sigsbee: {K-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}
Moorman: {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades}

With Sigsbee dominated, the {A-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{9-Spades} flop would only see him pick-up a gutshot straight draw, and when the {6-Diamonds} landed on the turn, only four jacks would keep him alive.

Unfortunately for Sigsbee, the {Q-Diamonds} completed the board to sen him to the rail in 11th place for an AUD$100,000 payday as Moorman surges up the leaderboard to now sit with 2,500,000 in chips.

Just the Ol' Six-Bet for Moorman

Posted 2011-01-28 GMT+12 • Level 20: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
"That's how we do it!"
"That's how we do it!"

Chris Moorman opened to 38,000 from the cutoff only to have Jeff Rossiter three-bet to 95,000 from the button.

Once the blinds passed and the action returned to Moorman, he made it 160,000 to go.

Rossiter - now faced with a four-bet - didn't hesitate in sliding out 260,000.

With a decision now on Moorman, he responded by shipping 425,000 into the pot to force an eventual fold from Rossiter.

As Moorman rakes in the six-bet pot, he moves to 2,250,000 as Rossiter slips to 1,750,000 in chips.

Mizzi Finally Folds

Posted 2011-01-28 GMT+12 • Level 20: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Sorel Mizzi finished in third place in this event last year and is doing his best to get back to that position and best it this time around. When action folded to him in the small blind on this last hand, he limped in. Sam Razavi checked in the big blind and the flop came down {6-Spades}{5-Clubs}{5-Hearts}. Mizzi checked and Razavi bet 21,000. Mizzi made the call.

The turn card brought the {K-Clubs} out and Mizzi checked. Razavi bet 50,000 and Mizzi made the call to see the {4-Clubs} come on the river. Mizzi checked and Razavi bet 50,000. Mizzi mucked and Razavi won the pot.

Moorman Back Into Second

Posted 2011-01-28 GMT+12 • Level 20: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Three hands from the first orbit saw Chris Moorman pushed the pot as he climbed into second place on the leaderboard.

Raising to 38,000 on two consecutive times, Moorman happily picked up the blinds and antes. Then when in the small blind, he made it 42,000 to force a fold from Jeff Rossiter.

Randy Battle; Dorfman 1, Lew 0

Posted 2011-01-28 GMT+12 • Level 20: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
"I am the superior Randy!"
"I am the superior Randy!"

Randy Lew opened to 34,000 from under the gun only to have Randy Dorfman three-bet all in from the big blind.

A visibly distressed Lew thought for a while before pushing his cards towards the muck.

Schedule Plans

Posted 2011-01-28 GMT+12 • Level 20: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Tournament director Christian Vaughan just let the players know that if the field gets down to eight players quickly, they'll pause for a dinner break and then return to play down to the final six. The final table was originally set at seven players, which is accustomed to the Aussie Millions. If they get down to eight super fast, they might even just play straight through to six. We'll have to wait and see how it goes, but those are the ideas that have been tossed around between staff and players.
