Chino Rheem Losing Chips

Brett Richey doubles through Rheem
Brett Richey doubles through Rheem

The Chino Rheem juggernaut seems to have lost a wheel during the past few levels. Gone is the cheery face and now there sits a solemn look. Here is Rheem doubling up Brett Richey.

Richey opened up to 16,500 in mid-position, Rheem made the three-bet to 40,000 on the button, Richey shipped it for 88,000 and Rheem called.

Richey{A-Clubs} {K-Diamonds} {K-Hearts} {8-Spades}
Rheem{A-Spades} {A-Hearts} {7-Clubs} {4-Spades}

So Rheem was way ahead and we needed five cards in the middle of the felt. The flop was {K-Spades} {6-Clubs} {2-Spades} and Richey got a stroke of good fortune. The turn {J-Diamonds} and river {Q-Clubs} are woeful for Rheem and he is now down to 184,000 chips; Richey is up to 172,500.

Joseph Ressler and Dominique Mosley Are Out

Two quick eliminations take us down to the final three tables and 26 players. Firstly, our overnight chip leader, Joseph Ressler, has been eliminated at the hands of Robert Williamson III. Unfortunately, we do not have the details of the Ressler bust but we do have the details of the Dominique Mosley bust.

Vadzim Kursevich raised to 11,000 in mid-position, Mosely three-bet to 40,500 in the cutoff and Kursevich called. The flop was {Q-Diamonds} {5-Spades} {5-Clubs}, Kursevich put Mosley all-in and he called.

Kursevich{9-Diamonds} {7-Clubs} {6-Diamonds} {5-Diamonds}
Mosley{A-Diamonds} {K-Clubs} {K-Diamonds} {Q-Spades}

A great flop for Kursevich and the {6-Clubs}, {8-Diamonds} made it even better and Mosley was out.

Dutch Boyd Eliminates Jaspal Brar

Dutch Boyd has just eliminated Jaspal Brar. We caught the action on the turn with the board showing {10-Clubs} {6-Clubs} {6-Spades} {K-Diamonds} and three players in the hand. It seems that Emil Patel had opened from mid-position and both Brar (SB) and Boyd (BB) got involved from the blinds. Brar's stack was in the middle so the action was on Boyd who checked, Patel bet 16,000 and Boyd called. The river was the {9-Clubs} and Boyd went from checker to bettor making it 18,000 to play and Patel folded.

Boyd showed down {K-Clubs} {J-Clubs} {J-Hearts} {7-Spades} and Brar mucked his hand and left.

Table #434: WSOP Bracelet Winner Kovalchuk Out In Front

Things are tight and quiet on Table #434; in stark contrast with the Chino Rheem table for example. Table #434 does have plenty of World Series of Poker (WSOP) form with bracelet winner Oleksii Kovalchuk, 8 time WSOP bracelet winner Erik Seidel and the nearly-man of the WSOP Steve Merrifield all seated within a few breaths of each other. Merrifield has had a 6th, 3rd and 2nd in bracelet events so our fingers are crossed for him in Event #26.

Here are the current stats.
