Saffari Scoops Wong

• Level 25

Omaha-8

Brandon Wong raised from the button and Sebastian Saffari three-bet from the small blind. Philip Sternheimer folded his big blind and Wong made it four bets to go. Saffari called.

The dealer fanned a flop of {2-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} and both players tapped the table to see the {q-Hearts} hit the turn. Saffari fired out a bet and Wong called. The river was the {9-Hearts} and Saffari fired one more bet. Wong called but mucked his hand after Saffari fanned {A-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} for a flush and a low. Saffari now has about 1.05 million in chips while Wong has fallen to around 1.35 million.

2-7 NL Draw Round

Shamus • Level 25

No-Limit 2-7 Single Draw

Two of the six hands were of the raise-and-take variety, both won by Brandon Wong. Another hand saw Sebastian Saffari open-raise for 41,000 from the button, then Philip Sternheimer shoving from the small blind and earning folds from both opponents.

The most involved hand of the half-dozen saw Sternheimer raising to 32,000 from the button and Saffari calling from the big blind. Saffari then drew two cards as Sternheimer stood pat, then Saffari tossed out a single green chip (25,000) as a post-draw bet. Sternheimer just called, and Saffari tabled {9-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{3-Spades}{2-Hearts}. Sternheimer showed he had a 10-low as he mucked.

• Level 25

Stud

This round of stud remained relatively tame with only one hand making it to a showdown. Though tame overall, Philip Sternheimer was able to take a fair sized pot off of Sebastian Safari in the following hand.

Sternheimer: {x-}{x-} / {9-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{A-Hearts} / {x-}
Saffari: {x-}{x-} / {8-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{3-Spades} / {x-}

Saffari was the bring in and Sternheimer completed. Saffari called and called another bet on fourth street. Sternheimer led out again on fifth and for another time on sixth. Saffai went into the tank on sixth but ultimately decided to take a look at his final card.

Sternheimer shot out one last bet on seventh and Saffari buried his head in his hand. He mucked his cards and Sternheimer dragged in the pot.

Saffari and Sternheimer Battle in Badugi

Shamus • Level 25

Badugi

"Badugi now," intoned the tournament director. "The game of kings." "Gotta make it a bracelet event," answered Brandon Wong, as the first hand of the round was dealt.

It was a lively Badugi round, with four of the six hands going to showdown. The two biggest hands during the sequence both involved Sebastian Saffari and Philip Sternheimer.

In the first, Saffari raised from the small blind and Sternheimer called from a seat over. Saffari took one card, Sternheimer took two, and after Saffari bet, Sternheimer called.

Saffari stood pat from that point forward, with Sternheimer drawing one card on each of the last two draws. Saffari led both times, with Sternheimer calling on the second round, then raising on the third. Saffari came back with a reraise back, and when Sternheimer called, Saffari showed his {6-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{A-Spades} for a 6 Badugi.

"I almost just called," said Sternhemier as he mucked his 8 Badugi, but Wong replied "three-handed… what can you do?"

Sternheimer got some back on the next hand, however, when the pair tangled again, Sternheimer ended up drawing a {9-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{2-Hearts}, and his hand beat Saffari's 10 Badugi.

Quiet Round of Limit Hold'em

• Level 25

Limit Hold'em

It was a relatively quiet round of limit hold'em here on the secondary feature table. Sebastian Saffari lost two pots at showdown during this round, one to each of his opponents.

In the first hand, Saffari raised from the small blind and Philip Sternheimer called from the big blind. The flop came {J-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{J-Diamonds} and Saffari led out. Sternheimer called and the {3-Clubs} fell on the turn. Saffari checked but then cut out a raise after Sternheimer led at the pot. Sternheimer called.

Fifth street was the {A-Clubs} and Saffari bet out once more. Sternheimer called and showed the {A-}{5-} for aces and jacks to beat Saffari's {5-Diamonds}{4-Spades} for jacks and fours.

The next hand, Saffari took a flop with Brandon Wong. The two saw {6-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} hit the felt and Wong check-called a bet from Saffari. The {10-Diamonds} hit the turn and Wong checked again. Saffari moved out one big bet and Wong stayed the course. The river was the {10-Spades} and both players checked. Wong showed {A-Spades}{K-Clubs} which caused Saffari to send his cards sailing into the muck.

Razz Appetizer Before Dinner

Shamus • Level 24

Razz

The final three players were able to play five razz hands before the end of the level.

Of those, none went to showdown. The most interesting came when Philip Sternheimer brought in with a {K-} showing, then called when Brandon Wong completed with a {9-}. Wong then drew {A-}{J-}{2-}, betting each street, while Sternheimer drew {5-}{Q-}{10-}, calling through fifth street but giving up on sixth.

Big Pot Poker

• Level 24

No-Limit Hold'em

Philip Sternheimer raised to 25,000 from his small blind and Brandon Wong came over the top for 80,000 from the big blind. Sternheimer called and the flop brought down {5-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}. Sternheimer checked and Wong wasted little time announcing 125,000. Sternheimer replied by moving all in and Wong went into the tank for well over a minute. In the end, Wong opted to lay it down and the pot was pushed to Sternheimer.

Wong had his revenge during the next hand. Sternheimer raised to 25,000 from the button and Wong three-bet to 85,000. Sternheimer called and the flop brought {10-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}. Wong once again fired 125,000 and Sternheimer called the bet.

The turn was the {8-Clubs} and Wong used both hands to move towers totaling 270,000 into the middle. Sternheimer quickly folded and Wong took down the pot.
