Rollercoaster for Woodward

Posted 2012-06-11 GMT-6

Matthew Woodward has just gone on a bit of a roller coaster ride before the dinner break. Firstly, Woodward was left crippled when the following hand played out with Matt Glantz.

Folded to Woodward in the small blind, he raised it up holding {10-Clubs}{9-Spades}. Glantz was in the big blind and called holding {7-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}. The {9-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} flop would see Woodward lead and Glantz throw in an extra bet. Woodward then made it three-bets and Glantz called. The {3-Spades} turn and Woodward would bet as Glantz would put in a little extra and find himself all in. Woodward made the call and when the players turned their cards over, it was looking like Glantz would be sent home. However the {5-Spades} on the river had different ideas as Glantz doubled and Woodward was left crippled.

Woodward would then find himself all-in preflop holding {a-Spades}{4-Clubs} against the {k-Clubs}{j-Diamonds} of Andrew Prock. The board ran out {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}, with Woodward managing the double-up to survive.

Prock Can't Be Stopped

Posted 2012-06-11 GMT-6

Andrew Prock has been on a bit of a run lately and that has continued in the following hand against Jeff Shulman. It started when the action was folded around to Shulman whoi raised the button. Prock was in the small blind and made it three bets. A call from Shulman and the {q-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{7-Hearts} flop would be dealt. Prock led on the flop and then Shulman made it two bets. Prock called and a {5-Clubs} hit the turn. Both players checked here and then Prock led again on the {q-} river. Shulman stared him down before making the call.

When Prock tabled his {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs} for the nut flush, Shulman's cards would go into the muck and Prock would take down the handy pot.

Prock Giving Some Up

Posted 2012-06-11 GMT-6 • Level 23

Raymond Dehkharghani raised it up and Andrew Prock made the call out of the big blind. The {A-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{9-Spades} flop would see Prock check and Dehkharghani bet. Prock called and the {10-Diamonds} hit the turn. Prock again checked and Dehkharghani again bet. Prock opted to flick out another call and a {6-Diamonds} would be dealt on the river.

Prock checked yet again on the river and Dehkharghani yet again fired out a bet. Prock opted to commit to a call and then mucked his hand as Dehkharghani tabled his {j-}{9-}.

Matt Glantz: {6-Clubs}{6-Hearts}

Nicholas Derke - 8th Place

Nicholas Derke's last hand began when Andrew Prock opened the cutoff. Derke was on the button and made the call and a {9-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{7-Hearts} flop would hit the felt. Prock check called a bet here and a {k-Clubs} hit the turn. Prock again checked, but this time raised when Derke put in a bet. Derke then called all-in and turned over his {k-Spades}{j-Diamonds}, which would need help against the {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts} of Prock.

The {q-Diamonds} on the river wasn't what Derke was looking for and he was sent home in 8th place. With that hand, Prock takes a chip lead.

Woodward Gets the Triple

Posted 2012-06-11 GMT-6

Matthew Woodward and Raymond Dehkharghani capped the betting preflop to see all of Woodward's remaining chips enter the pot.

Woodward: {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}
Dehkharghani: {10-Clubs}{10-Spades}

Woodward would need to dodge some cards to stay alive and that's what he would do as the {k-Spades}{9-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{10-Hearts} board would give him a set and the nice pot.

Ayman Qutami - 9th place

We have just lost our first player here at the final table, with Ayman Qutami our 9th-place finisher. His last hand started when he opened it up from middle position. Andrew Prock was in the big blind and called as a {q-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{7-Hearts} flop was dealt on the felt. Qutami led and then called the extra bet from Prock. The {3-Spades} turn and Qutami would commit the last of his chips and turn over {q-Clubs}{j-Diamonds} to be in front of the {q-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} of Prock.

Unfortunately for Qutami, the {6-Hearts} on the river would give Prock two-pair, to see him rivered and eliminated.

No Action

Posted 2012-06-11 GMT-6 • Level 23

The last couple of hands have seen the blinds picked up without a contest. First Benjamin Scholl opened the pot and got no action and then Nicholas Derke did the same.

Prock Picking Them Up

Posted 2012-06-11 GMT-6 • Level 23

Nicholas Derke started the action from under the gun. Folded around to Jeff Shulman in the small blind and he tossed in an extra bet. Andrew Prock then four-bet out of the big blind and it was back on Derke who let his hand go. Shulman made the call and a {10-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{8-Spades} flop would be dealt on the felt.

On the flop, Shulman would check and one bet from Prock would be enough to see Shulman's cards into the muck.
