Ivey Winning Razz

Posted 2012-06-18 GMT-6


Abe Mosseri brought it in with a {k-} showing and Ivey completed with the {a-}. Paul Sokoloff then raised it up with a {3-} and Ivey made the call, while the rest of the table was out of the way.

Ivey: {x-}{x-} / {a-}{4-}{3-}
Sokoloff: {x-}{x-} / {3-}{8-}{8-} (FOLDED)

On fourth street, Ivey led with a bet and Sokoloff called. Fifth street saw Ivey lead again, but this time Sokoloff folded and sent the pot to Ivey.

Chop it Up, Phil and Mori

Posted 2012-06-18 GMT-6 • Level 21

Omaha 8

John Monnette opened the action with a raise from under the gun. Mori Eskandani called a couple of spots to his left and Phil Hellmuth called out of the big blind. The {3-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} flop would see Hellmuth lead and Monnette call. Eskandani also called and a {5-Clubs} was dealt on the turn. This time the play would be checked to Eskandani and he would be. Hellmuth called and Monnette got out of the way as a {7-Spades} was the last card to hit the felt.

On the river, Hellmuth check-raised a bet from Eskandani and a call would see the two players turn their hands over.

Eskandani: {a-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}
Hellmuth: {j-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{9-Spades}

It was the full house for Hellmuth and the nut-low for Eskandani as they split up the pot.

A Couple of Oh-Eight Hands

Posted 2012-06-18 GMT-6 • Level 21

Omaha 8

Here is how a couple of small Omaha Eight-or-Better hands played out during these early stages of nine-handed play.

  • Hand One: Mori Eskandani opened up the action with a raise and only Paul Sokoloff called on the button. The {6-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{6-Clubs} flop would see Eskandani check and then raise when Sokoloff bet. It was enough to scare Sokoloff off as Eskandani took it down.
  • Hand Two: Folded to Paul Sokoloff, he called from the cutoff and Abe Mosseri called in the small blind. David Bakes Baker tapped the table in the big blind and a {3-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{k-Spades} flop was dealt. Mosseri simply led here and it was enough to take down the pot.

One for Hellmuth

Omaha 8

From middle position, Phil Hellmuth raised. Matt Waxman made the call from the big blind and the flop came down {Q-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{3-Hearts}. Waxman checked and Hellmuth bet. Waxman folded and Hellmuth won the pot.

Kelly Bests Ivey

Posted 2012-06-18 GMT-6 • Level 21

Omaha 8

Action folded to Dan Kelly in the cutoff seat and he raised. Phil Ivey made the call from the small blind and the flop came down paired with the {K-Spades}{10-Spades}{10-Hearts}. Ivey bet out and Kelly called.

The turn put trips on the board with the {10-Clubs}. Both players checked. They also both checked when the {7-Hearts} landed on the river.

Kelly opened the {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{4-Spades} for the trip tens on board plus ace-king high. Ivey mucked and Kelly won the pot.

Eskandani Loses Two Hold'em Pots

Posted 2012-06-18 GMT-6


From middle position, Mori Eskandani raised. Action folded to David "Bakes" Baker in the big blind and he reraised. Eskandani called.

The flop came down {10-Clubs}{9-Spades}{3-Spades} and Baker led with a bet. Eskandani called and the turn was the {J-Clubs}. Baker fired again and this time Eskandani gave it up.

A few hands later, Eskandani was in the big blind and called a raise made by John Monnette on the button to see the {A-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} flop. Eskandani checked and Monnette bet. Eskandani folded and has now dropped to under 200,000 in chips.

Brandon Shack-Harris Eliminated in 10th Place ($35,923)

Brandon Shack-Harris - 10th Place
Brandon Shack-Harris - 10th Place

Omaha 8

Brandon Shack-Harris has just been eliminated shortly after the break. It was during a hand of Omaha Eight-or-Better and it was against Phil Ivey.

Shak-Harris got the remainder of his short-stack in on a flop showing {a-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{a-Spades} and this is how the cards looked at this point.

Shack-Harris: {a-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{8-Spades}{3-Hearts}
Ivey: {a-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{k-Hearts}

Shack-Harris flopped the full-house, but the {9-Clubs} on the turn gave Ivey a better full house and with no qualifying low to show for, the {3-Diamonds} river changed nothing and Shack-Harris was sent home in 10th place. With that, we head to our unofficial final table.

Ivey Scoops Monnette

Posted 2012-06-18 GMT-6

Omaha 8

Phil Ivey raised in first position, and the action folded to John Monnette who defended his big blind. The dealer fanned {k-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}, and Monnette led out. Ivey called.

The turn was the {5-Spades}, and Monnette slowed down, check-calling a bet. The {q-Spades} completed the board, and Monnette check-called one more bet. Ivey tabled {q-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{2-Spades} for a set of queens and the second-nut low, and scooped the pot.

John Monnette 655,000 -135,000 neg
Phil Ivey 640,000 120,000 pos
