Grand Lamb Larceny

In one of the biggest pots on the feature table today, Ben Lamb has moved up to more than 9.7 million after a massive three-way pot against JP Kelly and Erick Lindgren.

From under the gun, Lindgren raised to 110,000 and the action folded around to Kelly who called from the button before Lamb also called from the big blind to see the flop of {10-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{8-Hearts}.

Lamb opened for 190,000 and both Lindgren and Kelly called and the action repeated after Lamb's bet of 550,000 on the turn of the 6c. However, Lamb fired out a bet worth one million on the river of the {9-Spades}, forcing Lindgren out of the way, but Kelly went into the tank for over five minutes before laying his hand down.

With that, Kelly is down to almost 2.3 million, but Lindgren is now on life support with almost 1.2 million.

Tony Takes One

Tony Hachem
Tony Hachem

Martin Staszko raised to 105,000 from middle position, then it folded to Kyle Johnson who called from the cutoff. The button got out, then Tony Hachem reraised all in for 1.3 million. The big blind folded, and Staszko immediately tossed his cards away as well.

Johnson thought for a few moments, giving Hachem a chance to speak up. "I don't want to play after the flop with you guys," he grinned. Johnson nodded, saying "I don't think I can call you" before folding as well.

After getting short earlier in the evening, Hachem has worked his way back up to 1.52 million.

Bonding Applies Pressure


Lars Bonding raised to 100,000 from middle position only to have Martin Staszko three-bet to 245,000 from the button. Both blinds got out of the way and Bonding made the call. The {K-Clubs}{6-Spades}{3-Spades} flop saw Bonding lead out for 170,000, Staszko raise to 375,000, and Bonding three-bet to 900,000.

Staszko gave it some thought, ultimately deciding to let his hand go.

Goodbye Gorelik

Not long after Jean-Robert Bellande had been eliminated from the secondary feature table, Aleksandr Mozhnyakov raised to 120,000 from the hijack position before Guy Gorelik shoved from the button for a total of 935,000.

The others got out of the way and Mozhnyakov snap-called, tabling {K-Diamonds}{K-Clubs} against Gorelik's {A-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}.

Despite pairing up on on the board of {8-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{6-Spades} Mozhnyakov's kings had Gorelik crushed and another one bites the dust. Mozhnyakov is now on more than 6.2 million.

Robinson's Straight


Board: {9-Spades}{6-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}

Nelson Robinson led out for 130,000, and David Bach, the original raiser, made the call. The river was the {10-Hearts}, and Robinson led again - this time for 350,000. Bach went into the tank, and started staring Robinson down.

"I guess you coulda made the straight," he said finally.

After another minute or so in the tank, Bach made the call. Robinson rolled over {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} for said straight, and Bach mucked his cards.

Bellande Busts

Shamus • Level 26: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Jean Robert Bellande
Jean Robert Bellande

Jean-Robert Bellande persevered with a below-average stack for much of Day 6, successfully working his way up through several pay jumps. His run has finally come to an end, however, after putting his last 900,000 or so in the middle with {A-Spades}{10-Spades} and running into Tri Huynh's {A-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}.

The flop came {J-Hearts}{A-Hearts}{7-Spades}, giving Huynh two pair and leaving Bellande in dire straits. The turn brought the {4-Diamonds}, making the river {6-Hearts} no matter, and Bellande has been eliminated in 65th place, having made it a few spots deeper than his 78th-place finish of a year ago.

Huynh adds more to his stack, and now sits around 6.1 million.

More Chips For Moore

Christopher Moore raised to 110,000 from under the gun and was called by Sam Barnhart from the cutoff. The flop came down {A-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} and Barnhart called a bet of 175,000.

The turn brought the {10-Diamonds} and Moore checked to Barnhart who pushed out 200,000. Moore made the call and the two saw the {A-Diamonds} pair the board on the river. Moore checked once again and Barnhart pushed out 200,000 more. Moore decided on putting out a check-raise, and made the action 700,000 to go. Barnhart made the call and tabled {A-Clubs}{2-Clubs} for rivered trip aces. Unfortunately for Barnhart, Moore held {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts} and his queen kicker played.

Moore was able to drag the pot, bringing him up to 4,600,000.

Pocket Rockets for Kaplan


Action folded to Per Linde on the button and he raised to 105,000, which was quickly raised to 245,000 by Gregory Kaplan in the small blind. The big blind got out of the way while Linde made the call. Both players proceeded to check the {8-Spades}{7-Spades}{3-Hearts} flop, leading to the {K-Spades} turn.

Kaplan ended up check-calling a bet of 350,000, and the {6-Diamonds} was put out on the river. Both players checked and Kaplan rolled over {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds} for the winner.

Bazeley Busts, Sousa Soars


Samuel Holden opened to 100,000 from middle position, Mario Silvestri called in late position, and Jacob Bazeley moved all in for 760,000 from the cutoff. Fabio Sousa then re-shoved for 1.1 million from the big blind, and the action behind folded.

Bazeley: {q-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}
Sousa: {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}

Bazeley was in bad shape, and things only got worse when the flop fell {5-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{k-Hearts}. He was drawing dead after the {a-Spades} turned, and the {j-Clubs} completed the board. Shouts of "Vamo!" erupted from the rail, and Sousa walked over to celebrate as Bazeley packed his things.

Bazeley's Main Event is over, while Sousa is now sitting with more than 2 million chips.
