Seiver Doubles Yet Again

Posted 3 hours 19 minutes ago • Level 27: 30,000-60,000, 5,000 ante

Ami Barer opened to 120,000 from under the gun, Scott Seiver moved all in for around half a million from the small blind, and Barer called.

Barer: {k-Hearts}{8-Hearts}
Seiver: {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}

The {6-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds} flop changed very little, and although the {q-Diamonds} on the turn confirmed that Seiver would not be eliminated, the two could chop the pot with a ten on the river.

The river was a brick ({5-Hearts}), however, and Seiver secured the double.

Rabinowitz Cracks Kings to Double Big

Ami Barer opened for 120,000 and received a call from Andrew Phaedonos. Darren Rabinowitz then moved all in from the small blind, the big folded, and Barer wasted little time in making the call. Phaedonos got out of the way and the cards were turned up.

Barer: {k-Clubs}{k-Hearts}
Rabinowitz: {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}

Phaedonos informed his friends on the rail that he had folded an ace, which meant there were just two left in the deck. The odds were against Rabinowitz, but that didn't stop him from taking the lead when the {5-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{a-Clubs} flop delivered him one of those aces.

Rabinowitz's rail, which includes reigning World Series of Poker Main Event champ Ryan Riess, went wild for their man while Phaedonos' rail, who are no doubt hoping their man would move up the pay ladder, were vocally disappointed.

Neither the {5-Spades} turn nor {2-Spades} river changed a thing and Rabinowitz doubled through Barer.

Posted 3 hours 34 minutes ago • Level 27: 30,000-60,000, 5,000 ante

Andrew Phaedonos moved all in over a completion from Ami Barer, and Barer tossed his hand in the muck to the applause of the locals on the rail.

Barer Trips Up Mizzi

Posted 3 hours 50 minutes ago • Level 27: 30,000-60,000, 5,000 ante

Ami Barer opened for a raise to 120,000 in the cutoff, Sorel Mizzi three-bet to 305,000 on the button, and both blinds released. Barer made the call.

Both players checked on a flop of {4-Spades}{7-Hearts}{3-Spades}, and Barer check-called a bet after the turn brought the {j-Clubs}. The river was the {j-Diamonds}, Barer led out for 420,000, and Mizzi tanked for a considerable amount of time before calling.

Barer showed {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts} for trip jacks, and Mizzi mucked his hand.

Sorel Mizzi opened for 120,000 from early position and Scott Seiver called from the button. Ami Barer came along from the big blind and three players saw a flop of {j-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}. Barer checked, Mizzi bet 220,000, and Seiver called.

Barer then woke up with a check-raise to 485,000, both his opponents called, and the dealer burned and turned the {J-Clubs}. Barer slowed down with a check, Mizzi did the same, and Seiver came out with a bet of 435,000. Barer quickly folded, and then Mizzi sprung to life with an all-in check-raise. Seiver, who only had 800,000 or so behind, snap-folded.

Ace-Ten for Everybody

Posted 4 hours 16 minutes ago • Level 27: 30,000-60,000, 5,000 ante

Sorel Mizzi opened for a raise on the button, Jake Balsiger called out of the small blind, and the dealer spread {3-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{4-Spades}. Balsiger check-called a bet of 235,000, and both players knuckled on the turn ({9-Diamonds}) and the river ({4-Clubs})

Both players showed {a-}{10-}, and chopped the pot.

Seiver Continues to Chip Up

Posted 4 hours 29 minutes ago • Level 27: 30,000-60,000, 5,000 ante

Andrew Phaedonos opened for 140,000 and cleared the field to Scott Seiver, who decided to look him up from the big blind. Both players checked the {2-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} flop, the {10-Hearts} turned, and Seiver took the opportunity to bet 200,000.

Phaedonos made the call, the {7-Spades} completed the board on the river, and the Seiver fired out four blue T100,000 chips for a bet of 400K. Phaedonos wasted little time in making the call, but he simply mucked when Seiver rolled over {2-}{2-} for a set.

Scott Seiver was second to act, and open-shoved for 575,000. The action folded to Jake Balsiger, and as players started to leave for break, the Octo-Niner called.

Seiver: {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}
Balsiger: {k-Spades}{j-Spades}

The dominant hand held up as the board ran out {6-Hearts}{7-Spades}{8-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}, and Seiver doubled.
