Oliver Three-Bet Pham in Back-to-Back Hands

YorkshirePud • Level 22: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

Justin Oliver has grown in confidence since moving to "The Mothership" and has started to three-bet David Pham relentlessly.

The first hand saw Pham open to 28,000 from the button and then fold when Oliver three-bet to 65,000 from the small blind.

The next hand, Pham opened to 26,000 and folded when Oliver re-raised to 60,000.

Pham needs to be careful because since losing that large pot to Oliver, he has been left with around 30 big blinds and they won't last long if you are raise-folding as often as Pham is right now.

Schwarmann Puts Juanda All-in

YorkshirePud • Level 22: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

The action folded to John Juanda on the button and he raised to 24,000. Jared Jaffee folded his small blind but Nick Schwarmann had other ideas; one of those ideas was to raise all-in.

Juanda looked tempted to call before sending his cards to the muck.

"You probably had a small pair," said Juanda to Schwarmann just before Schwarmann showed him the {A-Clubs}!

"I feel better now!" said Juanda.

David Pham raised to 30,000 from the cutoff and Justin Oliver reraised to 60,000. Pham 3-bet to 150,000 and Oliver called.

Pham continued for 150,000 on the {3-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} flop and Oliver called. Both players checked the {2-Spades} turn.

Pham led for 140,000 on the {4-Spades} river and Oliver moved all in for 360,000. After some serious thought, Pham eventually called Oliver's all in.

Oliver showed {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds} and Pham tried to muck his cards. He was instructed he had to show his hand because it was an all in with a call but he still wouldn't turn over his hand. Finally, the tournament director turned it over to reveal {j-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}.

Daniel Park has busted in sixth place at the hands of Jared Jaffee.

John Juanda made it 25,000 to play from the button, Park three-bet all in for 122,000 in the small blind and Jaffee called in the big blind. Juanda folded.

Park: {Q-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}
Jaffee: {A-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}

"Dominated!" said Park when he saw Jaffee's hand.

Flop: {10-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} - The flop gave Park some outs to a straight, but kept Jaffee ahead.

Turn: {4-Hearts} - The turn failed to change the course of the hand.

River: {5-Clubs} - Park missed his out and is now watching from the sidelines.

Pham Counterfeited

YorkshirePud • Level 22: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

Nick Schwarmann set the price to play at 25,000 from the small blind and Pham tossed in some orange 5,000 chips to make the call. The {7-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{10-Hearts} flop saw Schwarmann check-call a 37,000 bet from "The Dragon," and Schwarmann then check-called a 44,000 bet on the {K-Clubs} turn. Both players checked the {10-Clubs} river.

Schwarmann flipped over {A-Hearts}{3-Clubs} and Pham mucked.

"The river counterfeited me," claimed Pham.

"You always have a pair!" joked Schwarmann.

"I know why they call you 'The Dragon,'" said Justin Oliver, "It's because you breathe all this bulls**t out all the time!"

Pham took that last comment in the spirit it was intended and all three players burst out laughing.

Pham and Schwarmann Continue to Butt Heads

YorkshirePud • Level 22: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

David Pham and Nick Schwarmann are the tournament's chip leaders and they are continuing to butt heads. Surely it is only a matter of time before another huge hand develops.

Pham opened on the button and Schwarmann defended his big blind with a call. Schwarmann then check-called a 28,000 bet on the {9-Hearts}{4-Spades}{5-Diamonds} flop, before both players checked the {8-Spades} turn. Schwarmann then checked the {J-Clubs} river, only to see Pham bet 67,000.

Schwarmann's face spoke a thousands words; he did not believe Pham's story. One minute passed before Schwarmann picked up his card, and threw them into the muck.

"Nice hand, sir. I had a nice pair," said Schwarmann.
