Event #29: $2,500 10-Game Mix / Six Handed

Kostritsyn Scores a Chopportunity

• Level 9

Omaha 8/B

The action folded around to Alexander Kostritsyn who raised from the small blind; Daniel Makowsky called from the big blind to go heads-up to a flop of {2-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{A-Clubs}. Kostritsyn led out, Makowsky raised and Kostritsyn called before both players checked the turn of the {6-Spades} and the river {k-Hearts}.

Kostritsyn tabled {A-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{8-Spades}{8-Clubs} for the high and Makowsky showed {J-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} for the low to chop it up.

Bach Doubles

• Level 9


David Bach: {7-Diamonds}{4-Spades} / {7-Spades}{10-Hearts}{6-Spades}{6-Hearts} / {6-Clubs}
David Stroj: {a-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} / {A-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{A-Spades} / {8-Clubs}

Having taken a hit earlier, Bach found himself all-in against Stroj by fifth street - although we weren't able to pick up the action, we can tell you that Bach was able to river sixes full to double up.

Longfellow Takes the Long Walk


Over on table 293, the action folded to Michael Wattel who raised before the first draw, only to see Erica Schoenberg reraise from middle position before Karen Longfellow called all-in for 1,900 from the big blind. Wattel called, then Longfellow and Wattel each drew one while Schoenberg stood pat.

Wattel checked to Schoenberg who bet; Wattel then check-raised and Schoenberg called before taking one on the second draw. Longfellow also took one, but Wattel stood pat and led out. Schoenberg called, then stood pat again on the final draw whilst Longfellow and Schoenberg drew one again.

Wattel opened the betting, but this time Schoenberg folded. Wattel tabled {2-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{5-Hearts}{6-Clubs} and Longfellow was eliminated.

Albini's in the Red, Juanda's Also Dead

• Level 9

Limit Hold'em

We picked up the action between Shaun Deeb and Steven Albini on a flop that read {10-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{j-Hearts}; Albini was the all-in player but Deeb had snap-called with {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs}. "I think you're drawing dead," Deeb quipped. He was soon eating his words after Albini tabled {J-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}.

"Ooh, maybe not!" Deeb exclaimed. He needn't have worried - the turn and river bricked out {3-Diamonds}, {5-Clubs} and Albini was sent to the rail.

And earlier, the cry of "Seat open, 276!" went up and we witnessed 2011 Event #16 champion John Juanda heading out of the Amazon Room. That'll be two down, 160 to go.

Day 2 - Cernuto's in Command!

"Miami" John Cernuto leads an all-star cast in Event #29!
"Miami" John Cernuto leads an all-star cast in Event #29!

The PokerNews Live Reporting Team are back in the Amazon Room and we are getting set for another exciting day of all-round poker action, with Day 2 of the $2,500 10-Game Mixed Event!

Yesterday's starting field of 431 players almost read like an honor roll of poker's finest, and indeed, it's one of those big names that tops the chip counts today - "Miami" John Cernuto.

The 67-year-old finance major-turned-professional poker player already has three WSOP bracelets to his name, across three different disciplines of the game. The first came in 1996 when he won the $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Split-8 or Better event, then he picked up the second in a $2,000 No Limit Hold'em event the following year before winning the $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha event in 2002. Add to that 49 WSOP in-the-money finishes, as well as a final table appearance in the WPT and over $5.1 million in tournament cashes since 1987, and you know that he's no easybeat.

Nor are any of the other 161 players that are returning today - just some of the names include Greg Raymer, Freddy Deeb, Lyle Berman, Jeff Madsen, the brothers Mizrachi (Robert and Michael), John Hennigan, Alexander Kostritsyn, Steve Zolotow, Mike Matusow, Alexander Kravchenko, John Juanda and Terrence Chan ... the list goes on!

It's going to go off like a frog in a sock here, so be sure to stay tuned with us right here at PokerNews as we bring you every blow-up, bad beat and boomswitch moment from 3pm PST (GMT -7). Game on!
