Couden Wins Last One Before Break

Jan_Kores • Level 30: 50,000-100,000, 0 ante

Joey Couden raised to 250,000 and Bruno Fitoussi called in the big. They checked the {3-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}{3-Clubs} flop and Fitoussi checked the {J-Hearts} turn again. Couden bet 175,000 and Fitoussi cut out a raise. He put in only 300,000 so he had to add two more red chips to make it 350,000 for a double raise. Couden called.

The {Q-Diamonds} river was quickly checked and Fitoussi showed {K-Spades}{J-Spades}{X-}{X-} but Couden immediately rolled over {7-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{3-Clubs} for trips and took down the pot.

That was the last hand of the 10th level of the day but the players used the option to play one extra level tonight. They took a 15-minute break and then come back to continue in level 60,000/120,000.

Eli Elezra: {8-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}
Joey Couden: {a-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}

The board ran out {4-Spades}{k-Diamonds} and Couden scooped the pot with a wheel to send Elezra to the rail in third place.

All In and Call and Chop

Jan_Kores • Level 30: 50,000-100,000, 0 ante

In a completed pot, Bruno Fitoussi and Eli Elezra put 200,000 in front of them on the {6-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} flop. The rest went in the {7-Spades} turn with Elezra holding {Q-}{7-}{3-}{3-} for the bottom set and a flush draw. Fitoussi had {A-}{Q-}{5-}{2-} without a flush draw, hoping to hit a five on the river. It was the {J-Hearts} instead and they chopped it.

Joey Couden limped in from the button and called when Bruno Fitoussi made it 400,000 out of the small blind.

The rest of their chips went in on the {10-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{3-Spades} flop where Fitoussi potted for 900,000 and Couden shoved all in for effectively 255,000 more. Fitoussi called and found himself behind.

Bruno Fitoussi: {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}
Joey Couden: {K-Spades}{Q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{9-Clubs}

Couden flopped top two pair but the {3-Diamonds} turn brought a superior two pair for Fitoussi whose aces held up on the {2-Spades} river. Couden sent 1.55 million Fitoussi's way and the French two-time WSOP runner-up took over the chip lead.

Couden Takes a Big Chunk out of Elezra

• Level 30: 50,000-100,000, 0 ante

Joey Couden opened to 200,000 on the button only to see Eli Elezra three-bet to 650,000 out of the big blind. Couden called and a {3-Hearts}{2-Spades}{5-Spades} flop was dealt. Elezra check-called a bet of 350,000 and the {10-Diamonds} hit the turn.

Both players checked and their final card on the board was the {5-Hearts}. Elezra checked and Couden bet the pot, enough to cover Elezra, and Elezra was forced to fold.

Elezra and Couden Split

Jan_Kores • Level 30: 50,000-100,000, 0 ante

Joey Couden limped on the button and Eli Elezra checked his options. They checked the {4-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} as well and Elezra led out 200,000 on the {A-Diamonds} turn. Couden called and the {5-Hearts} completed the board.

Elezra fired 600,000 and Couden didn't waste much time before calling. They chopped the pot as Elezra made a six-low with three-deuce but his straight was no good against Couden's {6-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{X-}{X-}.
