Kravchenko Busts in Razz



Alexander Kravchenko just busted out in 31st place, he couldn't beat Bruno Fitoussi for his tournament life in a hand of Razz.

Alexander Kravchenko{7-}{Q-} / {A-}{5-}{3-}{K-} / {5-}

On third street Fitoussi raised, and Kravchenko moved all in. The Russian pro got it heads up, and ended up with a queen-seven low. Fitoussi made a jack-ten low and raked in Kravchenko's final chips.

Bloch Sends Antonius Packing



Patrik Antonius came back from dinner with a short stack, and he didn't manage to put together a comeback. Andy Bloch knocked him out, and we are down to 31 players.

Andy Bloch{k-Diamonds}{2-Spades} / {K-Spades}{9-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} / {x-}
Patrik Antonius{4-Spades}{4-Hearts} / {2-Clubs}{A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{J-Clubs} / {x-}

Bloch completed it on third street and Antonius made the call. On fourth street Antonius bet and Bloch called. Fifth street still gave the Finnish pro the betting lead, and he bet, Bloch raised and Antonius called all in.

Antonius caught the {5-Hearts} and didn't improve his hand. Bloch turned over the {a-Spades} and knocked his opponent out with two pair kings and deuces.

Ivey Active

Phil Ivey
Phil Ivey


Phil Ivey was very active in the lastest round of Omaha H/L. He doubled up short-stacked Alexander Kravchenko when Kravchenko raised all in with {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}. Ivey called from the big blind with {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{10-Hearts}{9-Clubs}, but couldn't come out ahead when the board fell {6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}.

Still, Ivey has added about 100,000 to his stack since the break. In a hand against John Hennigan, Ivey raised from the cutoff and then called Hennigan's three-bet from the button.

The flop fell {10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} and Ivey check-raised a Hennigan bet. Hennigan called to see the {3-Clubs} turn and proceeded to call Ivey's bet. However, he folded to Ivey's river bet after the {3-Hearts} fell.
