Can't Kill Kenney

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

Bryn Kenney just got here, but despite getting sat across the felt from Phil Ivey, he found himself in the right place at the right time right away.

Kenney: {x-}{x-} / {a-Hearts}{10-Spades}{3-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} / {x-}
Opponent #1: {x-}{x-} / {j-Clubs}{8-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} / {x-}
Opponent #2: {x-}{x-} / {k-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{9-Spades} / {x-}
Ivey: {x-}{x-} / {3-Spades}{7-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{j-Diamonds} / {x-}

There was a good chunk of change in the pot already when Ivey took control with a bet on fifth street, but Kenney made it two bets and both of the other players joined Ivey in calling. Everybody checked down sixth and seventh and Kenney managed to get them all to muck simply by showing the {a-Diamonds}.

Opponent: {x-}{x-} / {8-Spades}{10-Hearts}{j-Spades} - Folded

The action checked to Wasserson on fifth street, and he fired out a bet. Only Duhamel called. The 2010 WSOP Main Event champ led out for a bet on sixth, Wasserson raised, and Duhamel called.

Duhamel check-called one last bet on seventh, then mucked when Wasserson showed {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{7-Hearts} for a flush.

Parker "Doesn't Know What He's Doing"

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

Eli Elezra: {x-}{x-} / {j-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} / {x-}
Eric Wasserson: {x-}{x-} / {5-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{9-Clubs} / {x-}
Brock Parker: {x-}{x-} / {6-Spades}{2-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} / {x-}
Opponent: {x-}{x-} / {9-Hearts}{q-Hearts}

Two bets went in on third street, and the action checked to Wasserson on fourth. He bet, Elezra and Parker both called, and the same action took place on fifth.

Wasserson checked for the first time on sixth, Parker took the opportunity to bet, and Elezra put in a check-raise. Wasserson called, and Parker went into the tank.

"You need him for the fantasy team," Elezra said, looking at Wasserson who has a bet on every team against Dan Fleyshman's, which Parker isn't on.

"I don't know what I'm doing," Parker said, looking at all of the up cards.

Wasserson laughed, "That's good for us if he doesn't know what he's doing!"

Parker chuckled before throwing out a call. Elezra bet dark before seventh, only Wasserson called, and the two players chopped the pot:

Elezra: {j-Spades}{8-Clubs}{5-Spades} for a full house.
Wasserson: {4-Clubs}{3-Spades}{2-Hearts} for a six-five low.

Hellmuth Misses

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

Phil Hellmuth looked good to make a low and even scoop with a wheel in a hand just moments after late registering this event.

Hellmuth: {x-}{x-} / {2-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{a-Clubs} / {x-}
Opponent: {x-}{x-} / {a-Spades}{4-Hearts}{q-Spades}{8-Clubs} / {x-}

After calling bets on just about every street, Hellmuth sounded surprised to hear his opponent check in the dark. He then announced he had two pair, threes and fives, but his opponent showed {8-}{4-}{x-} for a better two pair.

Linde and Barer both checked on fourth street, and Barer led out on fifth. Linde called.

"Wheel," Linde said, showing {a-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{2-Spades}.

Barer nodded, then mucked.

George Danzer
George Danzer

As if current WSOP Player of the Year leader George Danzer's World Series wasn't going well enough, he's the first player past the 100,000-chip post here in the $10,000 Stud 8.

He just managed to win yet another hand moments ago making a full house on seventh street and scooping when his flush holding opponent paired up to miss his low.
