Event 40: $2,500 Limit Hold'em - Six-Handed

Early Scores

Shamus • Level 2: 100-200, 0 ante

Matt Glantz has arrived, taking a seat at a table where both Phil Ivey and Bob Lauria are playing. Meanwhile Game 5 of the NBA Finals between Oklahoma City and Miami has begun and can be seen on a couple of television screens along the walls.

Just now Glantz raised from the button, and Ivey folded the small blind as he looked past his opponents to see the start of the game. The big blind then three-bet, and Glantz called. The flop came {7-Clubs}{2-Spades}{A-Hearts} and Glantz called his opponent's bet. The turn brought the {10-Diamonds} and another bet from the big blind, and when Glantz raised his opponent gave it up.

On the next hand, the action folded to Ivey on the button who looked down long enough to raise, and he got a single caller from the same opponent Glantz had faced, now in the small blind. This time a single bet from Ivey on the {Q-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} flop was enough to force another fold.

Glantz is a little up from the starting stack with about 8,500, Lauria is sitting with about 7,500, and Ivey is down around 6,000. And Miami is up 11-8.
