Limit Hold'em

Samuel Golbuff made it two bets from the button and Salman Behbehani three-bet from the big blind. Golbuff flatted to see a flop, which came {5-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}.

Golbuff proceeded to call a bet from Behbehani on the flop, {J-Clubs} turn and {2-Spades} river. Behbehani flipped over {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds} for aces and fives. Golbuff couldn't beat it and mucked his hand without showing.

No-Limit Hold'em

From early position, Samuel Golbuff raised to 25,000 and then Brent Wheeler tank-shoved from the hijack seat for 161,000. Action folded back to Golbuff and he requested a count. Golbuff had 155,000 behind, which meant he had Wheeler covered by a little bit. Eventually, Golbuff called.

Wheeler held the {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds} and was in dominating shape to double up with the {K-Spades}{Q-Clubs} for Golbuff.

The flop and turn kept Wheeler in front with the {9-Spades}{9-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} falling, but the {Q-Spades} on the river smacked Golbuff with the winner and sent Wheeler to the rail.

Two in a Row for Gathy

Posted 2012-06-20 GMT-6 • Level 21

No-Limit Hold'em

From under the gun, Michael Gathy raised to 25,000 and Erik Cajelais called from the hijack seat. Everyone else folded and the flop came down {K-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}. Gathy bet 28,000 and Cajelais folded.

On the next hand, Joep van den Bijgaart raised to 25,000 from under the gun and Michael Gathy called from the big blind. The flop came down {10-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} and both players checked.

On the {J-Diamonds} turn, Gathy led for 32,000 and van den Bijgaart called.

The river was the {10-Diamonds} and Gathy bet 72,000. Van den Bijgaart folded and Gathy won the pot.

Tryba Comes Back Over the Top

Posted 2012-06-20 GMT-6

No-Limit Hold'em

Erik Cajelais min-raised to 24,000 from under-the-gun and action folded over to Chris Tryba in the cutoff, who three-bet to 58,000. It was folded to Michael Gathy in the small blind, who, after some deliberation, four-bet to 116,000. Cajelais quickly folded and action was back on Tryba, who moved all-in for 324,000. Gathy tanked, but eventually flicked his cards into the muck one-by-one and Tryba scooped the sizable pot.

Tryba is up to 470,000 following the hand while Gathy has slipped to 290,000.
