Shulman Takes One Off Scholl

Posted 2012-06-12 GMT-6 • Level 26

With the action on Jeff Shulman on the button, he raised it up and Benjamin Scholl called in the big blind. The {4-Spades}{3-Spades}{2-Hearts} flop would see Scholl check-raise and Shulman call the extra bet. Both players then checked the {a-Diamonds} turn and Scholl led on the {8-Hearts} river. Shulman called and then took down the pot when his {a-Clubs}{2-Clubs} hit the felt.

Prock The Casbah

Posted 2012-06-12 GMT-6 • Level 26

Andrew Prock took down a other small pot when Jeff Shulman folded {a-}{q-} on the turn of a {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{10-Spades} board, with Prock raking in the small pot. When he did so, his rail chanted a chorus of "Prock The Casbah". You have to wonder when they will run out of 80's tunes featuring the word "rock".

Prock You Like a Hurricane

Posted 2012-06-12 GMT-6 • Level 25

Andrew Prock was in the big blind when he called a raise from Jeff Shulman in teh small blind. The {k-Clubs}{k-Spades}{2-Diamonds} flop and Shulman would lead with a bet and receive a call from Prock. Both players opted to check the {q-Hearts} turn and then Shulman would fire a bet on the {2-Clubs} river. Prock called and then took down the hand holding {3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}.

This time when Prock raked in the pot, his faithful rail shouted out a chorus of "Prock You Like a Hurricane," of course in the tune of the Scorpions' 80s classic.

Walking

Posted 2012-06-12 GMT-6 • Level 25

The last few hands have seen the players each get a walk. The average stack compared to the limits is a lot better now and so play may finally slow down a little.
