Bojang and Smith Tangle

Posted 2012-06-11 GMT-6

We only walked up to this pot after the river was out on the {3-Hearts} {7-Diamonds} {9-Diamonds} {4-Clubs} {Q-Hearts} board. Patrick Smith had a bet of 125,000 out in front of him behind a Bojang check. There was at least 300,000 in the pot, probably more than 350,000.

After a couple long minutes in the tank, Bojang surrendered, and he's dipped back below a million chips.

Delay Departs

Posted 2012-06-11 GMT-6

Justin McGill and Jean-Paul Delay got it all in before the flop with the latter being the shorter of the two stacks. He was ahead, though, and his {J-Spades} {J-Diamonds} had him in good shape for a double. McGill turned up {A-Diamonds} {9-Diamonds}, and things would improve for him in a hurry.

The board ran out {A-Hearts} {9-Clubs} {2-Hearts} {6-Hearts} {A-Clubs}, and that's the end of the day for Delay. He's off in 19th place, and we're in the middle of a redraw for the final two tables.

Wheeler Gets it In Early

Posted 2012-06-11 GMT-6 • Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Jason Wheeler opened to 35,000, and Gregory Ronaldson three-bet to 85,000 from the small blind. Wheeler considered for just a few seconds, then flicked the call into the pot.

The flop brought {6-Clubs} {6-Spades} {9-Diamonds}, and Wheeler called another 80,000 from Ronaldson. That brought them to the {2-Spades} turn, and Ronaldson loaded another bullet. He made it 180,000, but after some time in the tank, Wheeler moved all in for 275,000 on top, and that sent Ronaldson deep into the tank. Wheeler slid his chips into the middle, then laid his head on the rail to sweat it out. It would be several long minutes before Ronaldson let him off the hook, and the fold has given Wheeler an early chip boost.

More than a half-million dollars awaits the winner, and Gregg Wilkinson comes into the day with a big chip lead.
