Event 46: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Brasilia Room Gold Section Walkabout

Here is our bright and early report from the Gold Section of the Brasilia Room.

We have last years World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event runner-up Martin Staszko in the field. Staszko can fund the $2,500 buy-in because he won $5,433,086 for that second-placed spot. English actor and great poker player within his own right, Michael Greco, is in the house. Greco is currently sharing table space with one of the up and coming youngsters Pratyush Buddiga.

World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner James Dempsey has just arrived with the remnants of last nights session coating his little purse (yes he has a purse). So how is Dempsey feeling?

"Absolutely under it mate," said Dempsey.

David 'Doc' Sands is also in the field and here he is getting involved in a heavy pot as early as Level 1.

Sands raised to 125 in early position, Ilkin Amirov called on the button before Yordan Jeliazkov also called in the small blind. Sands was next and he raised the stakes making it 1,150 to play. Amirov knew it was time to get out of Dodge, but Jeliazkov made another raise, this time for 2,600. Sands took a swig from his giant mug of coffee and then made the call. The flop was {J-Clubs} {8-Diamonds} {6-Spades} and a 3,525 Jeliazkov bet won the pot.
