Noah Schwartz is playing the 25k High Roller and he shares his opinion on many various topics during the break.

Cailly Retakes The Chip Lead

Posted 2012-04-30 GMT+2 • Level 32: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante

Lucille Cailly raised to 325,000, on the button, holding {A-Hearts} {7-Hearts} and Mohsin Charania called, in the big blind, holding {8-Spades} {7-Clubs}. The flop was {A-Clubs} {6-Hearts} {5-Diamonds} and what a great flop it was! Charania checked and Cailly bet 355,000 with her top pair. Charania doesn't mess about with the timing of his bets and he makes a quick call.

Turn: {5-Hearts}

Charania checked for the second time and, this time, so did Cailly.

River: {A-Spades}

Charania can only win this hand with a bet and a bet is what he made. The total price was 1,110,000 and the size of it pushed Cailly back into her chair. She quickly checked her cards, "call," fell out of her mouth and with that she took the lead.

A Good Round For Mohsin

Posted 2012-04-30 GMT+2 • Level 32: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante

Mohsin Charania limped from the small blind holding {10-Clubs} {7-Clubs} and Lucille Cailly checked in the big blind. The action checked through to the turn and a feint towards his chips was enough for the pot to be pushed in the direction of Charania.

-

Mohsin Charania raised to 330,000, on the button, holding {A-Diamonds} {7-Clubs} and Lucille Cailly called, in the small blind, holding {K-Diamonds} {7-Diamonds}. Bernard Guigon found {K-Spades} {Q-Spades} in the big blind and despite shoving the last few times he has played a pot, he decided to make the call.

Family Flop: {A-Hearts} {9-Diamonds} {4-Clubs}

The action checked to Charania on the button and he bet 355,000. Cailly had that look on her face, and she made the call. Guigon had both hands in front of his mouth as his brain whirred away, but he folded leaving the pair to see the turn.

Turn: {5-Diamonds}

Cailly moved her fist from temple to cheek; her face serious, and she announed, "check," and Charania checked behind.

River: {6-Hearts}

So Cailly missed her flush but it didn't stop her from betting. She moved 535,000 across the line and Charania called in a heart beat and took the pot.

Bernard Guigon Doubles Up

Posted 2012-04-30 GMT+2

Bernard Guigon moved all-in from the small blind for 1,830,000 and {7-Clubs} {7-Hearts} and Mohsin Charania called in the big blind holding {A-Spades} {5-Hearts}. Guigon has folded his way to this spot and he could be doubling up in five hands time.

Board: {J-Spades} {10-Hearts} {3-Clubs} {Q-Clubs} {Q-Diamonds}

Mohsin kept telling his friends on the rail that it was a bad call. Guigon, who has not played a hand, doubles up.

Sergio Castelluccio Eliminated in 4th Place (€400,000)

Posted 2012-04-30 GMT+2 • Level 32: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante
Sergio Castelluccio
Sergio Castelluccio

Sergio Castelluccio raised to 320,000, in first position, holding {J-Diamonds} {J-Hearts} and Mohsin Charania three-bet to 680,000 holding {8-Clubs} {6-Clubs} on the button. Lucille Cailly was next to act and she only goes and finds {A-Spades} {Q-Diamonds} in the small blind! Cailly is a relative cold four betting monster, at this final table, and one assumed yet another similar move from the classy French lady. She counted out a raise, but stopped in her tracks, and asked Castelluccio for a count. After receiving a reply she then reversed her decision and made the call. Bernard Guigon is the last post flop player to act, and he turned over {A-Diamonds} {6-Hearts}. He took an eternity counting out a raise and then he folded!

"All-in," said Castellucci in his sexy Italian drawl.

Charania ditches his hand and heads to the rail for a chat with Faraz Jaka and Cailly sinks deep into her chair. She seemingly hated the spot and really didn't know what to do.

"Call," she said before immediately rising to her feet with her hands behind her head. Remember Guigon folded an ace.

Flop: {10-Clubs} {9-Diamonds} {3-Diamonds}

Cailly places her palms of her hands on the final table and stares at the board.

Turn: {Q-Hearts}

A queen for Cailly and she moves away and the arms return to her head. Castellucci remains motionless in his chair.

River: {3-Hearts}

Castelluccio is out! Cailly flies over to the rail and high fives the blonde wig wearing fans.

Charania and Cailly Win Decent Pots

Posted 2012-04-30 GMT+2 • Level 32: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante

Mohsin Charania raised to 330,000, in first position, holding {10-Hearts} {8-Hearts} and took the blinds and antes.

Sergio Castelluccio raised to 360,000 in the small blind holding {9-Hearts} {8-Spades} and Mohsin Charania called in the big with {A-Spades} {5-Hearts}. The flop was {Q-Spades} {5-Spades} {4-Hearts} and Castelluccio made a c-bet of 300,000, which Charania called. The turn was the {4-Spades} and both players checked. The final card was the {6-Hearts} and there was 1.4 million in this pot. Castelluccio considered the bet, but eventually folded and Charania won the hand.

Sergio Castelluccio limped, on the button, holding {7-Hearts} {2-Hearts}, Mohsin Charania called in the small blind holding {Q-Clubs} {6-Spades} and Lucille Cailly checked her option in the big blind holding {K-Diamonds} {J-Hearts}.

Flop: {10-Spades} {8-Diamonds} {7-Spades}

A little bit of something for everyone and it was Cailly who bet first for 190,000. Castelluccio has hit middle pair and he raised to 530,000. Charania folded, but exposed the {6-Spades} in the process, and Cailly had the decision to fold or continue in this pot from a positional disadvantage. She pulled her chips back into her stack, added a few more hundred thousand to the stakes and moved 1,380,000 across the line and Castelluccio folded.
