Matt Affleck Wants that Green Up Arrow

We were able to catch Matt Affleck going all in preflop for 5,200. His opponent snap called with {J-}{Q-} and it would be five cards on the board that would decide Matt Affleck's tournament fate.

{K-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{10-Spades} all rolled off for the flop, giving Affleck quite the scare as his opponent had a lot of outs that could eliminate him. A turn-river of {2-Spades}{6-Diamonds} though, secured Affleck's double up.

[user68268] • Level 8: 200-400, 50 ante

The players are now on another 20-minute break. Maybe that guy will do 217 sit-ups this time.

Consistent Kabrhel

While walking around we spotted Martin Kabhril again in a growing pot. The board read {J-Spades}{5-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} and his opponent and just put a bet of 5,575 out at him. There was already well over 10,000 in the pot so we have to assume these two had been going at it before the flop.

After a long silence of deliberation and calculation by Kabrhel, he announced all in and put forward a giant stack of yellow 1,000s and blue 500s. His opponent had around 12,000 more so Kabrhel was essentially putting his opponent all in.

His opponent instantly called and showed {A-Hearts}{j-Hearts} for a pair of jacks ace kicker and Kabrhel flipped over {J-}{10-} for two pair jacks and tens. The river was of no help as a {4-} rung off.

Prager Building His Stack

[user198140] • Level 8: 200-400, 50 ante

Josh Prager raised to 1,100 from under the gun and was reraised when an opponent pushed all in for his remaining 2,625. Prager made the call.

Prager: {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}
Opponent: {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs}

The board ran out {q-Hearts}{q-Spades}{j-Hearts}{3-Spades}. Prager now sits with 18,200 in front of him.

Push Much?

[user68268] • Level 8: 200-400, 50 ante

Not that this has anything to do with the tournament, but a man just plopped down in front of our media desk and banged out 217 pushups, and that's only the amount we counted. Our guess is he already had 15 or so complete by the time we began paying attention and counting.

We've Found Our Chip Leader


Hello, Rick Romine! The guy has stacks and stacks of chips and we can only eye it up as about 114,000 or so. Mountains, we say. Mountains.
