And Back to Even

[user76023]

PLH

Mitch Schock raised to 125,000 and Rodney Brown made the call before leading out for 110,000 on the {3-Spades}{10-Spades}{8-Hearts} flop. Schock announced a raise to 300,000 and Brown set him all in, Schock shrugged again and called.

Schock: {A-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}
Brown: {J-Hearts}{10-Clubs}

The {4-Spades} turn and {Q-Diamonds} river changed nothing and we're pretty much even. It's the long haul everyone!

Another All In and a Call

Chad_Holloway

PLH

Rodney Brown raised to 100,000 on the button and Mitch Schock made the call, leading to a {9-Spades}{8-Clubs}{7-Spades} flop. Schock checked, Brown bet 110,000, and Schock woke up with a check-raise to 350,000. Brown took his time before announcing a raise to 725,000, Schock said all in, and Brown snap-called off for a total of 1,455,000.

Schock: {9-Clubs}{6-Clubs}
Brown: {10-Clubs}{6-Hearts}

Schock had flopped top pair with an open-ended straight draw, but he was way behind the flopped straight of Brown. The {4-Diamonds} left Schock drawing to a chop with any ten on the river. Unfortunately for him, the {2-Clubs} was put out on the river and Brown doubled to a 2-1 chip lead.

Back to the Grind

Chad_Holloway • Level 26

There have been very few hands of note in the past ten minutes. It usually consists of raise and takes, or the occasional continuation bet seems to get the job done on the rare instances that we see a flop.

In a recent hand of PLO, Mitch Schock raised to 75,000 on the button and Rodney Brown called from the big blind. It went check-bet 120,000-fold on the {6-Hearts}{8-Spades}{6-Clubs} flop.

There's been a lot of that going on.

Rodney Brown raised to 80,000 and Mitch Schock made it a very small looking 165,000 which Brown called. The flop was {10-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{8-Spades} and Schock fired 225,000 before Brown made it 525,000, Schock shrugged and said, "I'm all in," Brown folded instantly.

All In and a Call

Chad_Holloway

PLH

Mitch Schock raised to 90,000 on the button only to have Rodney Brown three-bet to 255,000. Schock, who began the hand with around 700,000, announced that he was all in. Brown snap-called and suddenly the tournament was on the line.

Brown: {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}
Schock: {K-Spades}{6-Spades}

Brown's supporter, who clearly outnumber Schock's here in the "Thunder Dome," rose to their feet and began shouting, "Hold!" Both players were on their feet as the flop came down {Q-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{J-Spades}, giving Brown a pair of queens. Schock was in bad shape, though the {10-Clubs} turn made things interesting by providing him with an open-ended straight draw.

"Hold!" the crowd shouted for Brown. The dealer burned and put out the {9-Hearts}! Schock smacked the table in celebration as Brown's rail fell silent. Schock is back in action!

Schock Therapy?

[user76023]

PLO

Mitch Schock made it 75,000 on the button and Rodney Brown reraised pot to 225,000. Schock made the call and the pair proceeded to check down the {Q-Spades}{6-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{4-Clubs} to the river where Brown bet 250,000 and Schock folded.

The next hand saw Brown raise to 65,000 and Schock called this time. Again the board was checked down to the river of a {K-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{5-Spades}{5-Hearts}{10-Spades} board where Brown bet pot and Schock called.

Schock showed {K-}{10-}{x-}{x-} but Brown flipped {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}{10-Clubs} for yet another pot.

Post-Break Action Not so Thrilling

Chad_Holloway • Level 26

The action has been excruciatingly slow since the players returned from the break. Min-raises preflop have been the order of the day. An example of the types of hands we've been seen in the past ten minutes:

PLO

Rodney Brown raised to 80,000 on the button and Mitch Schock exercised his option in the big blind by making it 165,000 to go. Brown made the call and watched as the flop fell {Q-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}. Schock led out for 210,000 and Brown insta-folded.

That was a hand that actually happened, which happened to be our biggest post-break hand thus far.
