Nacho Shoves on Kropacek

[user217945] • Level 2: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

After an open to 16,000 from the cutoff from Jan Kropacek, Nacho Barbero reraised all in from the button for 97,000 total. Action folded back to Kropacek who folded as well.

"I had a really bad hand," Kropacek said to Barbero after folding.

Even after picking up those chips, Barbero is still very short on chips.

Flopped Nuts Good For Naydenov

[user217945] • Level 2: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Simeon Naydenov has been winning small pot after small pot, gaining him a small chip lead at his table. Most recently he's taken even more chips from Kevin Vandersmissen.

After a bet and a call on a board of {K-Spades}{5-Spades}{2-Spades}{K-Hearts}, Vandersmissen and Naydenov headed for a river.

On that {9-Hearts} river, Naydenov put out a bet of 38,000. Vandersmissen tanked for a bit, but eventually threw in a call. Naydenov showed {A-Spades}{J-Spades} for the flopped nuts and Vandersmissen mucked, awarding another pot to Naydenov.

• Level 2: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Jan Kropacek opened the cutoff to 16,000 only to have Nacho Barbero three-bet to 35,000.

The action passed back to Kropacek and he moved all in for roughly 400,000 to put Barbero deep into the tank.

Nearly three minutes went by before Barbero mumbled, "sorry guys!"

A further two minutes before Barbero picked his cards up to be in view of the rail and some of the players before he mucked them wildly showing the {A-Clubs}{J-Clubs}.

The river was the {J-Clubs} and Watson slowed down and checked. Behbehani fired off 55,000 and after a spell in a tank, Watson called. Behbehani showed {K-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} for trips and it was good to scoop the pot as Watson mucked.

Small One for Kropacek

• Level 2: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Noah Bronstein opened his button to 16,000 and Jan Kropacek defended his big blind to see a {2-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} flop fall.

Bronstein tossed in a continuation-bet of 18,000 which was check-called by Kropacek as the {A-Clubs} on the turn went check-check.

The river of the {8-Clubs} saw Kropacek slide in a bet of 44,000, and after careful consideration Bronstein opted to kick his cards to the muck.
