Decent Flop for Auger

Posted 2012-06-07 GMT-6

Action started with Donald Auger, and he raised it up. Ben Landowski was next to act, and he put in a third bet. It folded back around to Auger, and he called. The flop came all jacks, {j-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}, and Auger bet out. Landowski beat him into the pot, and the exact same thing happened on the turn, the {6-Spades}, and the river, the {9-Diamonds}. When Auger was called on the river, he showed {j-Spades}{10-Spades} for flopped quads, and Landowski chucked his cards into the muck.

After that hand, Auger is up to 605,000, while Landowski drops to 410,000.

David Arsht put in a raise from middle position and was called by Jeff Weiss and Al Barbieri, who were in the small and big blinds respectively. Action then checked to Arsht on the {2-Spades}{Q-Hearts}{9-Clubs} flop and he put out a bet. Weiss called off his last 7,000 while Barbieri got out of the way.

Showdown
Weiss | {A-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
Arsht | {A-Hearts}{9-Spades}

Arsht was in the lead with a pair of nine, but the {J-Spades} turn did give Weiss an open-ended straight draw headed to the river. "Here comes the king," Barbieri said. The dealer burned and put out paint, but it was the {J-Hearts}. Weiss collected his things and made his way to the payout desk to collect $26,401 for his seventh-place finish.

Al Barbieri started the action by raising in the cutoff, and Alex Queen three bet on the button. It folded back to Barbieri, and he made the call. The flop came down {8-Clubs}{6-Spades}{5-Diamonds}, and Barbieri check called a bet from Queen. The turn was the {9-Diamonds}, and Barbieri led out for 40,000. Queen had just a few thousand more, and he committed them to the pot. Barbieri called, and the cards were tabled.

Barbieri: {a-Clubs}{7-Spades}
Queen: {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs}

The turn was a cooler card, as it gave Barbieri the straight, and Queen a set. Queen would need the board to pair to survive, but the river was the {j-Hearts}. Queen will take home over $20,000 for his efforts, while Barbieri is now over 850,000.

The Sweet Life for Sugar Bear

Posted 2012-06-07 GMT-6

Glenn Engelbert raised from middle position and was met with a three-bet by Al "Sugar Bear" Barbieri on the button. Stephen Hung then made the call from the big blind, Engelbert called the the extra bet, and it was three-way action to the {9-Spades}{10-Clubs}{9-Hearts} flop.

After they had both checked, Hung and Engelbert called a bet from Barbieri before all three checked the {8-Spades} turn. The {8-Hearts} river saw it go check-check to Barbieri and he bet once again. This time both his opponents folded and he took down the pot without a showdown.

Play Slowing Down

Posted 2012-06-07 GMT-6 • Level 24

After the elimination of Lori Kirgan, play has slowed down immensely. There is no extreme short stack, and there is no dominant chip leader, so for many of the pots, the chips are simply being moved around the table.

Lori Kirgan Eliminated in 9th Place ($15,886)

Lori Kirgan was hanging by a thread on the short stack for most of the past couple levels, and her luck has finally run out, as she is the first victim of the final table. Al Barbieri raised it up to 40,000, and it folded to Kirgan, who tossed in her last 38,000. Everyone else folded, and the cards were tabled.

Kirgan: {a-Hearts}{j-Hearts}
Barbieri: {4-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}

The board ran out {k-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}, and Barbieri's straight was good enough to take the pot, and knock Kirgan out in 9th.

Queen Beaten By a Queen

Posted 2012-06-07 GMT-6

Ben Landowski raised from the cutoff and was met with a three-bet by Alex Queen in the big blind. Landowski made the call and then called a bet from Queen on the {9-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} flop. The {Q-Clubs} turn saw Queen bet, Landowski raise and Queen make the call.

Queen then check-called a bet on the {7-Spades} river, but mucked when Landowski revealed {A-Spades}{Q-Spades} for a pair of queens.

Arsht Takes The Chip Lead

Posted 2012-06-07 GMT-6

Action folded all the way around to David Arsht in the small blind, and he raised it up. Glenn Engelbert defended his big blind, and the flop came down {8-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{j-Clubs}. Arsht led out, and Engelbert called. The turn brought the {2-Spades}, and Arsht bet out again, but this time, Engelbert raised. Arsht didn't slow down, putting out a third bet, and Engelbert called. The river was the {6-Spades}, and Arsht bet out one more time. Engelbert called, and could only shake his head when Arsht showed {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} for a flopped set.

That pot gives Arsht the chip lead with 670,000, and an interesting note is that while Arsht is the oldest player at the final table, he has been the most aggressive of anyone at the table. Arsht has been putting constant pressure on his opponent all day, and it's paying dividends for him now.

David Arsht 670,000 139,000 pos
Glenn Engelbert 330,000 -234,000 neg
