Three-Way Action

Posted 2012-06-11 GMT-6

Folded to Ayman Qutami on the button, he raised it up. Matt Glantz called in the small blind, as did Jeff Shulman in the big blind. The {2-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} flop would see Glantz lead out and Shulman make it two bets. Qutami got out of the way and Glantz called.

An {a-Hearts} hit the turn and Glantz checked and then folded his hand as Shulman fired out a bet. As Shulman raked in that pot and we counted his chips, his father Barry Shulman could be seen peering over from the table next to him, as Barry is down to the final two tables of Event 19: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em.

Ron Burke - 17th Place
Ron Burke - 17th Place

The first elimination of the day has just taken place, with Ron Burke falling to the rail in 17th place. We caught the action from the turn with a board already showing {j-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{5-Spades} and Burke involved in the hand with Raymond Dehkharghani. Burke was busy leading on this street and Dehkharghani quickly made it an extra bet. That was enough to put Burke all-in as he committed his last 12,500 in chips.

Dehkharghani: {2-Clubs}{2-Hearts}
Burke: {a-Hearts}{q-Clubs}

Burke needed to catch some help on the river, but when a {7-Hearts} fell, it was all over for him as he goes home with a bittersweet $11,071.

ProckDown Early

Posted 2012-06-11 GMT-6

Andrew Prock hasn't had a great start to the day and we recently watched him rumble with Terrence Chan and then with Ron Burke.

It started when Chan opened it up from middle position. Prock called in the small blind and a {10-Spades}{4-Spades}{9-Spades} flop was dealt. Both players checked and a {q-Spades} hit the turn. Woodward led and Chan called as a {2-Diamonds} was dealt on the river. Both players checked and Chan's {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts} was good enough to take down the {9-Hearts}{7-Hearts} of Prock.

A few hands later and Prock would open it up from the cutoff holding {q-Spades}{4-Spades} and Ron Burke three-bet holding {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} on the button. Prock called and a {5-Spades}{2-Spades}{6-Hearts} flop was dealt. Prock led on the flop and Burke committed his last 5,000 in chips. The players turned their hands over and the dealer slammed out a turn ({q-Diamonds}) and a river ({k-Clubs}), sending the pot to Burke and more of Prock's chips away.
