Eskandani showed a flush with the {10-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{7-Spades} in the hole and Sokoloff mucked. Brown also mucked and was eliminated in 11th place.

Ivey Winning It

Posted 2012-06-18 GMT-6


Phil Ivey and Brandon Shack-Harris have just played two back-to-back hands of Limit Hold'em, with both hands going to Ivey. The second one played out like this.

Ivey opened from middle position and Shack-Harris three-bet out of the small blind. Ivey made the call and the two took to a {10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{k-Spades} flop. On the flop, Shack-Harris bet and Ivey called. The {j-Hearts} turn would see Shack-Harris check and then tank when Ivey bet. After quite some time, Shack-Harris opted to let his hand go and send another pot to Ivey.

At What Point, John?

Posted 2012-06-18 GMT-6

"At what point did you like your hand, sir?" Paul Sokoloff asked John Monnette.

At this point in time a Stud Eight-or-Better hand had played out, with Sokoloff tabling his {5-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{2-Spades}{7-Spades}{a-Clubs}{a-Spades}{a-Diamonds} (in no particular order) at showdown. Monnette had {5-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{k-Clubs} out on the board and mucked his hand, giving Sokoloff no response. And with that, the big pot was sent to Sokoloff.

John Hennigan - 13th Place

John Hennigan had a bad start to the day and has been the short stack for the last level or so. He recently saw his tournament life end in 13th place during a hand of Razz.

Hennigan was all-in against Paul Sokoloff and the cards were dealt face up from fourth street. Hennigan quickly flipped his cards into the muck as Sokoloff hit his {a-}{4-}{5-}{6-}{7-} on sixth street. Hennigan couldn't manage even close to that and made his way home.

Another for Ivey; Hennigan Left Short

Posted 2012-06-18 GMT-6


Phil Ivey: {x-}{x-} / {4-}{6-}{2-}{7-}
John Hennigan: {x-}{x-} / {2-}{J-}{4-}{9-} - fold

Phil Ivey drove the betting the entire way on this one with John Hennigan making the call all the way up until sixth street. He gave it up on sixth and was left with just 20,000 in chips.
