Dan on Dan Crime

Level 4 : 100-200, 0 ante

Dan O'Brien opened to 400 from under the gun, Daniel Weinman three-bet to 1,100 on his direct left, and the action folded back to O'Brien, who called.

The flop came {8-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{k-Hearts}, O'Brien checked, and Weinman tossed out 1,075. O'Brien check-raised to 3,100, and after 20 seconds of thought, Weinman called.

The turn brought the {10-Spades}, both players knuckled, and a repeat ten - the {10-Diamonds} - completed the board. O'Brien fired out 7,275, leaving less than 2,000 behind, and Weinman tank-folded.

"Where Are You From?"

Level 4 : 100-200, 0 ante
Nick Jivkov - Bracelet winner
Nick Jivkov - Bracelet winner

Nick Jivkov opened to 500 in middle position, and the action folded to Ryan Fair, who three-bet to 1,425 out of the big blind. Jivkov called.

The dealer fanned {5-Spades}{7-Spades}{10-Hearts}, and Fair led out for 1,675. Jivkov thought for a bit, then reached for chips, firing out, 4,175. This sent Fair deep into the tank.

"Where are you from?" he eventually asked Jivkov, who responded only with an icy stare.

Jivkov, a 2012 World Series of Poker bracelet winner, calls the Windy City of Chicago his home, and the Chicagoan snap-called when Fair moved all in for effectively 14,375.

Jivkov: {7-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}
Fair: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}

The turn and river came {3-Diamonds}, {j-Hearts} respectively, and Jivkov doubled to around 32,000 chips. Fair was left with just 3,000.

Kessler Misses Out on Value

Level 3 : 75-150, 0 ante
Allen Kessler
Allen Kessler

During every event at the 2013 World Series of Poker, there is a random drawing to give away $100, which will go directly into that players WSOP.com account when the site eventually launches. If you are wearing a WSOP.com patch when your seat is drawn, then you win an extra $400.

Everybody knows that Allen Kessler hates giving away the slightest bit of value, and moments ago his seat was called over the loud speaker. Kessler was not wearing a WSOP.com patch, however, and missed out on $400 of equity. Antonio Esfandiari shouted this out for the entire field to hear, prompting many of the players to burst into laughter, and at the time Kessler was faced with a big river bet for half of his stack against Brandon Meyers.

The board was {5-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{6-Spades}, and according to Jesse Martin, Kessler check-raised on the flop and then led out on the turn. On the river, he checked to Meyers who flipped out a single pink T5,000 chip. Kessler folded, leaving himself with 11,600 chips, while Meyers now has 35,000.
