Match 1: Hastings Steamrolling

Posted 2012-06-07 GMT-6 • Level 72

Brian Hastings opened for 48,000 on the button and Tommy Chen shipped all in. Hastings made the call to put his opponent at risk.


Chen {J-Clubs}{10-Hearts}
Hastings {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}

Chen was in bad shape and in need of some help. He found a little on the {3-Clubs}{7-Spades}{8-Diamonds} flop as he picked up a gut-shot straight draw to any nine, but the {5-Spades} turn and {3-Diamonds} river would both blank. Hastings took down the pot, chipping up to 1.92 million in the process, while Chen was forced to use his last lammer for 640,000.

Match 2: Easy Going

Posted 2012-06-07 GMT-6 • Level 72

Both players are taking it easy for the last couple of hands. Mo is still in the lead while Parker has two rebuy lammers left behind. With the blinds going up we are bound to see another all in since Parker doesn't have a lot of big blinds left.

Match 1: Back and Forth

Posted 2012-06-07 GMT-6 • Level 72

Tommy Chen and Brian Hastings haven't been mixing it up as of late. Preflop aggression has been taking down most of the pots, while the chip stacks aren't really fluctuating. As of right now, Hastings is sitting with 1.52 million with two lammers behind to Chen's 400,000 and one lammer.

Posted 2012-06-07 GMT-6 • Level 71

Brock Parker raised the button to 40,000 and Jason Mo made the call. The flop came down {K-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} and Mo check-called a 50,000 chip bet. The turn was the {6-Clubs} and both players checked. On the river Mo bet 100,000 and Parker moved all in for just 184,000 more.

Mo tanked for around three minutes talking to himself, but he finally made the fold. Parker is now back up to 564,000 and still on his first bullet.

Match 1: Chen Sliding

Posted 2012-06-07 GMT-6 • Level 71

Brian Hastings opened for 40,000 on the button only to have Brian Hastings make it 130,000 to go from the big blind. Hastings made the call and the flop came down {4-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{9-Spades}. Chen was first to act and led out for 130,000, but he was quickly met with a raise to 500,000 by Hastings. Chen thought for the briefest of moments before releasing his hand, dropping to 440,000 in the process.
