Ivey and Monnette Quartered

Posted 2012-06-18 GMT-6

Omaha 8

David "Bakes" Baker raised in early position, John Monnette made it three bets in middle position, and Phil Ivey made it four bets by the button. Baker made it five bets, and both Monnette and Ivey called.

The dealer fanned {2-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}, and Baker led out. Monnette and Ivey both called. The {9-Hearts} turned, and Baker bet all in for 16,000 (less than a big bet). Monnette and Ivey called 60,000 (the size of an actual big bet).

The {5-Clubs} completed the board, and Monnette led out. Ivey called.

"Nut high," Baker said immediately, and all three hands were opened.

Baker {a-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{j-Spades}{2-Diamonds}
Monnette {a-Spades}{9-Clubs}{3-Spades}{2-Clubs}
Ivey {a-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{3-Hearts}

Baker raked in half of the main pot, Ivey and Monnette both received a quarter, and Monnette took three-quarters of the side pot.

First Hold'em to Hellmuth

Posted 2012-06-18 GMT-6 • Level 23


Phil Hellmuth opened the first hand of the hold'em round from the cutoff and only Phil Ivey in the small blind would make the call. The {5-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{5-Clubs} flop would see Ivey check-call a bet from Hellmuth and the {5-Hearts} would fall on the turn.

Ivey again checked here and Hellmuth again bet. This time Ivey opted to fold, which prompted Hellmuth to ask, "Do you want me to show?" He didn't really get an answer before tabling his {a-}{k-}.

Waxman Hurting

Stud 8

Matt Waxman: {x-}{x-} / {10-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} (FOLDED)
Abe Mosseri: {x-}{x-} / {a-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}

When Phil Ivey brought it in with a {4-Hearts} showing, Matt Waxman completed with a {10-Diamonds} out front. Abe Mosseri then made it an extra bet to go and a call from Waxman would take us to fourth street. On fourth, Mosseri bet and Waxman called. On fifth, Mosseri again bet and this time, after much thought, Waxman let go of his hand and sent the pot to Mosseri.

Monnette Moving Up

Posted 2012-06-18 GMT-6

Stud 8

John Monnette has seen his stack increase to huge heights again, courtesy of a nice Stud Eight-or-Better hand. The hand in question began when Phil Ivey completed with the {3-Clubs}. Phil Hellmuth called with a {10-Diamonds} showing and Monnette completed. Ivey was out of the way Hellmuth called.

Monnette: {x-}{x-} / {6-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{a-Hearts}{a-Spades} / {x-}
Hellmuth: {x-}{x-} / {10-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{9-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} / {x-}

On fourth street, Monnette check-called a bet. On fifth, Monnette led and Hellmuth called. When Monnette paired his ace on sixth, he led again and Hellmuth called. On seventh, Monnette again bet and then showed his {j-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{3-Hearts} in the hole for an ace-high flush, enough to take the pot off Hellmuth.
