Steinberg Puts on the Pressure

Posted 2012-06-19 GMT-6

Max Steinberg opened from under the gun for 90,000 and action folded around to Joseph Marzicola in the big blind who made the call.

The flop came {7-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} and Marzicola check-called a bet of 105,000 from Steinberg. The turn saw an {q-Hearts} land and Steinberg bet out 265,000 after Marzicola checked.

The river {3-Spades} saw more of the same with Marzicola checking and Steinberg betting. This time Steinberg announced all in and Marzicola went into the tank. Marzicola talked a little letting the table know he had a bust straight and flush draw, but he still thought he was ahead. In the end though he threw it away.

David Nicholson Eliminated in 6th Place ($75,314)

David Nicholson - 6th place
David Nicholson - 6th place

Action folded to Dylan Hortin on the button. He min-raised to 80,000 and found himself faced with a decision when David Nicholson three-bet shoved for 405,000 from the big blind. Hortin gave it some thought, but opted to call with {A-Spades}{6-Hearts}, leading Nicholson's {A-Hearts}{3-Clubs}.

"Six-ball!" shouted Hortin's rail. "Seven minus one!"

The dealer obliged, laying out a {7-Clubs}{6-Spades}{4-Hearts} flop to give Hortin a pair of sixes. Nicholson picked up a straight draw, but found no help from the {10-Diamonds} turn or {Q-Clubs} river to exit in sixth place.

Action this level has consisted of Matt Stout going all in and stealing the blinds and antes, or someone else raising and stealing the blinds and antes.

This hand however saw Max Steinberg raise it up to 90,000 only to be three-bet by Dylan Hortin up to 210,000. Instead of simply calling Steinberg four-bet to 390,000. Hortin folded and Steinberg took it down.

Steinberg Takes From Gerber

Posted 2012-06-19 GMT-6

Samuel Gerber opened to 100,000 on the button and Max Steinberg three-bet to 290,000 from the big blind. A call from Gerber landed a {5-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{2-Spades} flop.

Steinberg meticulously gathered chips for a bet and made it 330,000 for Gerbal to call. He didn't though, quickly folding his hand.

Steinberg Values

Posted 2012-06-19 GMT-6

Matt Stout raised it up to 90,000 from the hijack and Max Steinberg called from the big blind.

The flop came {k-Spades}{9-Clubs}{j-Clubs} leading to a Steinberg check and a 120,000 bet from Stout. Steinberg made the call and both players were witness to the {8-Clubs} on the turn. It was here that both players checked.

The {10-Hearts} on the river saw Steinberg take control with a tiny bet of 65,000. Stout made the call and Steinberg flipped over {j-Spades}{7-Clubs} for a straight.

Stout Doubles Through Gerber

Posted 2012-06-19 GMT-6

Action folded to Matt Stout on the button and he went all in for 405,000. Samuel Gerber was in the big blind after mulling it over for about 60 seconds, he called with {A-Hearts}{6-Spades}.

Stout tabled {K-Hearts}{9-Clubs} and scored the double up when the board rolled out {10-Spades}{9-Spades}{2-Spades}{8-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}.

"It's never easy," said a relieved Stout after he dodged the flush and straight draw. "I'm actually sweating."
