Phil Ivey: {x-}{x-} / {k-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{7-Spades}{a-Clubs} / {x-}

After taking a few hits, Ivey is climbing back up to the average stack, thanks to a made flush in a three-handed scoop.

Ivey and Glantz both checked to a third player on fifth street, and he tossed out a bet. The two players called. The trio all checked on sixth, and Glantz led out on seventh. The player in the middle called, Ivey raised, and Glantz begrudgingly folded.

The player in the middle found a call, and he mucked when Ivey showed {8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{3-Clubs} for a flush.

Juanda Jumps Up

[user127999] • Level 4: 800-1,600, 200 ante

John Juanda got really short and got it in on third street showing just an ace.

Proving it's not easy to beat a five-time WSOP bracelet winner, Juanda managed to make a pair of aces by the time it was all said and done and doubled up when his opponent couldn't beat it or show a low.

More for Matusow; Seed Chipping Up

[user101598] • Level 4: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Mike Matusow: {x-}{x-} / {a-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{3-Hearts} / {x-}
Matthew Wood: {x-}{x-} / {2-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{4-Spades} / {x-}

Wood brought it in, Matusow completed, and the action folded back to Wood, who called. Wood checked with his pair of deuces on fourth street, Matusow bet, and Wood called.

Both players checked on fifth, and Wood led out on sixth. Matusow called. Wood slowed down again, check-calling a bet on seventh street, then mucked when Matusow announced two pair and showed down {j-Hearts}{5-Spades}{4-Hearts} for just that.

Prior to Matusow scooping the pot, Huck Seed, who had just joined the table, won three straight pots to chip up to 81,000.

Hellmuth Gets Some Back

Phil Hellmuth started to get a little short and found himself calling a Ted Forrest bet on fifth street moments ago.

Hellmuth: {x-}{x-} / {3-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} / {x-}
Forrest: {x-}{x-} / {6-Clubs}{2-Spades}{5-Clubs}{q-Spades} / {x-}{x-}

Hellmuth took the lead on sixth street and bet out. Forrest called, but joined Hellmuth in checking seventh. Hellmuth could claim only the kings he had showing and it appeared Forrest missed a chance at a low as he mucked and handed Hellmuth the pot.

Bonomo Booming

[user127999] • Level 4: 800-1,600, 200 ante
Justin Bonomo
Justin Bonomo

Justin Bonomo managed to squeeze a little value out of Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier and a little more out of David Bach to scoop a pot and move above the 70,000 chip mark.

Bonomo: {x-}{x-} / {10-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} / {x-}
Bach: {x-}{x-} / {j-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs} / {x-}
Grospellier: {x-}{x-} / {5-Hearts}{5-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} / {x-}

Bonomo bet on fifth and found both opponents willing callers, but when Bach made aces on sixth, he led out. They went three handed to the river and after Back and Grospellier checked, Bonomo bet. Only Bach called, but he mucked when Bonomo showed a couple more diamonds for the flush.
