Barer Going Backwards

Posted 1 hour 43 minutes ago • Level 28: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Ami Barer opened to 160,000 in the hijack, Sorel Mizzi called on the button, and both blinds folded. The flop fell {9-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}, Barer led out for 170,000, Mizzi called, and both players checked after the turn brought the {5-Diamonds}.

The action went check-check after the {k-Clubs} completed the board, and Mizzi took down the pot with {8-}{8-}.

Barer Loses Another One

Posted 1 hour 54 minutes ago • Level 28: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Ami Barer opened for 160,000 and Jake Balsiger made the call from the big blind. The 2012 World Series of Poker third-place finish proceeded to check-call a bet of what appeared to be 180,000, and then both players checked the {A-Hearts} turn.

When the {2-Diamonds} peeled off on the river, Balsiger led out for 280,000 and Barer snap-folded.

Barer Wins One, Barer Loses One

Posted 1 hour 59 minutes ago • Level 28: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Darren Rabinowitz opened to 160,000 in the cutoff, Ami Barer called in the small blind, and Andrew Phaedonos tank-folded in the big blind.

The dealer fanned {8-Spades}{4-Clubs}{7-Spades} and Barer quickly checked. Rabinowitz checked behind, the turn was the prettiest card in the deck - the {a-Spades} - and Barer led out for 150,000. Rabinowitz folded.

Ami Barer raised to 160,000 on the button, Sorel Mizzi defended his big blind, and the flop fell {2-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{7-Hearts}. Mizzi checked, Barer continued for 145,000, and Mizzi called.

The turn was another deuce - the {2-Spades}, and the pair knuckled. The river was the {a-Clubs}, both players knuckled, and Barer was forced to show {10-}{3-}. It was no good against Mizzi’s {a-Spades}{10-Hearts} for a pair of aces, and he picked up the pot.

Scott Seiver Eliminated in 7th Place (AU$170,000)

Scott Seiver - 7th Place

It's taken nearly three hours of play, but we've finally had our first elimination.

It happened when Darren Rabinowitz opened for 160,000 and was met by an all-in three-bet of just over a million by Scott Seiver from the button. Both blinds folded, Rabinowitz called, and it was off to the race.

Seiver: {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}
Rabinowitz: {a-Spades}{10-Diamonds}

According to the PokerNews Odds Calculator, Rabinowitz was a slight 55.24% favorite while Rabinowitz would win 44.40% of the time. Unfortunately for Seiver, this was one of those time as the flop came down {a-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{k-Spades} to pair Rabinowitz's ace and make him an 86.36% favorite.

The {3-Hearts} turn was a good card for Seiver as it gave him a 25% chance of hitting his flush, but it was not meant to be as the {J-Clubs} blanked on the river. Seiver was eliminated in seventh place for AU$170,000.

Let's Have Ourselves a Dinner Break

Phaedonos Doubles in Last Hand Before Dinner

Vincent Rubianes opened with a raise only to have a short-stacked Andrew Phaedonos three-bet all in from the big blind. Rubianes made the call and the cards were turned up.

Phaedonos: {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}
Rubianes: {q-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}

Phaedonos was ahead, and he took a hammerlock on the hand when the {3-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{a-Clubs} flop delivered him an ace. The {4-Spades} turn left Rubianes drawing dead, and after the {9-Hearts} was run out on the river, Phaedonos was pushed the pot.

We'll have updated counts for you shortly.
