Event #2: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em (Eight Handed)



Kitai Takes a Hit

[user101598] • Level 7: 200-400, 50 ante

Davidi Kitai led out for 5,500 on a board of {6-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{8-Hearts}. One player called, another folded, and the turn brought the {6-Hearts}. Kitai tossed out a very small bet of what looked like 2,300, and the player called.

Kitai paused for a few seconds then turned over {7-Spades}{5-Clubs} for seven-high. It was his opponent's turn to tank, and after a beat or two he turned over {10-Spades}{10-Clubs} for a pair of tens.

Vedes Vanishes

[user101598] • Level 7: 200-400, 50 ante

Tommy Vedes open-shoved for 2,475 from under the gun, and the action folded to John Dolan, who called out of the small blind. Chris Moorman was tempted to either call or raise out of the big blind, but he eventually folded.

Vedes: {a-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}
Dolan: {a-Spades}{j-Diamonds}

Dolan held as the board came {10-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{4-Spades}, and Vedes was eliminated. Dolan now sits with 17,300 chips, while Moorman is sitting with around 100,000.

Just before the break, a very short-stacked Jason Mercier moved all in for 3,550 from middle position, and Michael "Gags30" Gagliano called on his direct left. The rest of the players folded, and the hands were opened.

Mercier: {10-Clubs}{8-Clubs}
Gagliano: {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}

The board rolled out {q-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{4-Spades}{7-Clubs}{6-Clubs}, and Mercier hit the showers.

BKiCe vs. Zugwat

[user101598] • Level 5: 100-200, 25 ante

Andy "BKiCe" Seth raised to 725 in early position, Steven "Zugwat" Silverman called in middle position, and a player in the big blind defended. The dealer fanned {6-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}, the player in the big blind checked, and Seth continued for 1,125. Only Silverman called.

The turn was the {j-Spades}, both players checked, and the {8-Spades} completed the board. Seth checked again, Silverman fired 4,000, and Seth quickly folded.

Lehr Ships the Cheese

[user101598] • Level 5: 100-200, 25 ante

Keith Lehr was faced with a 2,200-chip bet on a flop of {7-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}. He called.

The turn was the {9-Spades}, Lehr's opponent led out for another 5,500, and he opted to call.

The player gave up after the {q-Clubs} completed the board, checking to Lehr who knuckled behind. Frustrated, the player tabled {5-Spades}{4-Diamonds} for effectively five-high, which Lehr had beat with {9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} for nines and sevens.
