It took two hands to see Mike Schneider's tournament come to and end and this is how it went down. The first hand was between Schneider and Jeff Shulman. Schneider opened the pot in that hand and Shulman made the call in the big blind. Schneider then led on a {k-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{3-Spades} flop and then folded to a re-raise by Shulman. That left him with only 12,000 in chips - less than one big bet.

The next hand saw Schneider raise it up from under the gun, which put him all in. Andrew Prock made the call in the big blind and the two players turned their hands over.

Schneider: {a-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}
Prock: {q-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}

Unfortunately for Schneider, the board ran out {k-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{8-Spades}{q-Clubs}, with the queen on the river sending Prock the pot and sending Schneider to the rail.

Splitting Pots

Posted 2012-06-11 GMT-6

Jesse Martin started the action with an open from late position and Matt Szymaszek promptly put in the three-bet. Back on Martin and he made it four bets to go, whereby Szymaszek flicked out another chip to cap the betting. Martin called and a {6-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{4-Hearts} flop was dealt. Martin opted to check here and Szymaszek bet. A call from Martin and the two players would proceed to check down the {7-Clubs} turn and the {k-Spades} river.

Szymaszek: {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}
Martin: {a-Clubs}{q-Spades}

A friendly split pot.

Some Advice from Chan

Terrence Chan is no stranger to Limit Hold'em tournaments. He shares some advice for players who are making the transition from No Limit, to Limit Hold'em.

Prock Leaves Doug Short

Posted 2012-06-11 GMT-6

Andrew Prock was in the cutoff when he raised it up. Douglas Rutherford was on the button and three-bet. A call from Prock and a {j-Spades}{j-Hearts}{3-Spades} flop was spread on the felt. Prock opted to check-call a bet here and then do the same on the {q-Spades} turn. The {7-Clubs} river would see both players check and then Rutherford mucked when Prock tabled his {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}.

Overgard Up the River

Posted 2012-06-11 GMT-6

Folded to Samuel Overgard in the cut-off seat, he held {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts} and flicked in a raise to open the pot. Samuel Golbuff held {k-Hearts}{8-Spades} in the big blind and made the call.

Flop: {k-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}

On the flop, Golbuff checked and Overgard bet. Golbuff then check-raised and Overgard quickly made it three bets. Golbuff called and a {5-Clubs} hit the turn. Golbuff led here and Overgard committed his last 1,000 with a call.

Golbuff needed some help to stay alive here and it would come on the as a {10-Diamonds} gave him a set to take down the pot.

Samuel Golbuff 288,000 -39,000 neg
Chris Overgard 110,000 50,000 pos

Shei Doubles

Posted 2012-06-11 GMT-6

One of the first hands back from the break has seen Kenneth Shei double his stack. When we arrived at the table there was a flop showing {7-Hearts}{4-Spades}{j-Diamonds} and it was Shei in the small-blind seat and Ayman Quatmi in the big-blind seat. Shei only had a few big bets left and after check-raising and then calling a third bet from Quatmi, he was all in.

Shei: {j-Hearts}{8-Spades}
Quatmi: {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}

Shei was in front at the moment and it would stay that way as a {5-Diamonds} turn and a {3-Clubs} river hit the felt.

Kenneth Shei 110,000 55,000 pos
Ayman Qutami 70,000 -95,000 neg
