Judah Dodges Outs

[user249920] • Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 0 ante

Mel Judah and Alexey Makarov got all in before the flop.

Judah: {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{6-Clubs}
Makarov: {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{2-Spades}

Makarov had double-suited aces with an ace-deuce, a dream hand. The dream got a little scary when {2-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{k-Spades}, giving Judah two-pair. A {5-Spades} turn gave Makarov both nut flush draws, but Judah picked up the low with six-ace. The river was the {j-Hearts}, and Makarov flicked his cards to the middle in disbelief.

O'Shea Dealing With the Russian Tag Team

BrettC • Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 0 ante

Alexey Makarov, Andrey Zaichenko and Vladimir Shchemelev are three Russian poker giants, all seated at the same table here on Day 3 of Event #46. Sandwiched between the three of them is John O'Shea, who seems to be having a bit of trouble adapting to them.

In one hand, O'Shea opened to 25,000. In the next seat over Shchemelev potted it to 90,000. Action folded back around to O'Shea who let his hand go.

“Maybe that will teach you not to steal my big blind,” Makarov said to O'Shea. “If you try to steal my big blind, my friend will raise you.”

“I've to got deal with the Russian tag team here,” O'Shea joked. “I look at him you punch me, I look at you and he punches me!”

O'Shea is down a bit from where he started, is still alive despite being the tasty meat inside a Russian sandwich.

Matthew Lansdon opened the pot to 35,000 before the flop. Next to act, Alexey Makarov moved all in over the top for less than the pot. Action folded back around to Lansdon who called quickly.

Makarov: {A-Hearts}{7-Spades}{2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}
Lansdon: {A-Spades}{2-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{5-Spades}

The board ran out {10-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{K-Clubs} giving no player any pair or any low, but since Makarov was holding a pair of deuces in his hand he was able to score the elimination.

Chidwick Doubles Through Price

[user249920] • Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 0 ante

Stephen Chidwick got his last 50,000 or so in the pot preflop, and Robert Price made the call.

Price: {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Chidwick: {8-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{2-Clubs}

Chidwick's rags looked a lot brighter after the flop came {5-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{7-Spades}, giving him a freeroll for the whole pot and a lock for the low. An {a-Clubs} turn ended the sweat early, giving Chidwick a wheel.
