Hairabedian Takes Some From Mizrachi

With the board reading {3-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}, Michael Mizrachi checked to Roger Hairabedian who tossed out a bet of 4,000. Mizrachi opted to check-raise and Hairabedian called.

The river was the {A-Diamonds} and Mizrachi wasted no time throwing a bet of 12,000 into the center.

Hairabedian pondered his action for a while before asking the dealer to spread the pot.

"A lot of money in there," said Mizrachi who sat staring at Hairabedian with his head resting on his hand.

Eventually, Hairabedian called and showed {K-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{A-Spades}{2-Clubs} for a flush.

"Good call," remarked Mizrachi, who flung his hand into the muck.

Jachtmann Grinding the Short Stack

We found Jan-Peter Jachtmann all in before the flop for his last 3,600 and was called by Michel Abecassis from the big blind.

Abecassis: {J-Spades}{7-Spades}{5-Clubs}{4-Hearts}
Jachtmann: {K-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{5-Hearts}

The board ran out {J-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{6-Clubs} and Jachtmann was able to take it down with his two pair of kings and sixes. While this double up was a step in the right direction, Jachtmann is still the shortest stack in the room.

[user20283] • Level 10: 500-1,000, 0 ante

The first 20-minute break of the day just started. We will be right back!

Kollmann From Hero to Zero


Erich Kollmann started the day with a sizable chip lead, but that must feel like a long time ago now. The Austrian pro did not have his day as he has just been eliminated by Ville Mattila.

Kollmann was seated under the gun and he opted to limp for 1,000. This invited many players into the pot, and after Joe Hachem had checked his big blind it was six-way action.

The flop came down {A-Clubs}{K-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} and Kollmann bet 4,000 after both blinds had checked. Mattila was the only player that called, and heads up they saw the turn.

On the turn the {3-Diamonds} showed up and Kollmann checked. Mattila fired out 9,000 and the Austrian check-raised to 25,000. Mattila tanked for a while and called. The river was the {Q-Spades} and quickly Kollmann moved all in for right around 45,000 chips.

Mattila didn't seem too happy about this but he finally called. Kollmann showed {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts} and that was no good against Mattila's {K-Clubs}{K-Spades}{J-Clubs}{2-Clubs}. Kollmann showed that he also had the {K-Diamonds}, and his tournament run was over. Mattila is now the chip leader.

Cazals Doubles Through Jachtmann

We caught up to find Aubin Cazals all in for his tournament life looking down at a board of {2-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{10-Spades}{7-Diamonds}. Jan-Peter Jachtmann was Cazals' sole opponent in the hand.

Cazals: {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{8-Spades}
Jachtmann: {7-Spades}{6-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{2-Spades}

Jachtmann held two pair but was behind the nut straight of Cazals. The {K-Clubs} completed the board and Cazals was able to score a double up to about 21,000 in chips.

Mizrachi Takes Out Hoang


On a {3-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} there were no less than four players involved, and the action was checked to Chuc Hoang. He bet pot, 6,000, and Michael Mizrachi called. Aurangzeb Sheikh folded after which Stephan Gerin called.

The turn was the {K-Clubs} and it was checked to Hoang again. He went all in for just 5,100 and Mizrachi opted to raise pot to 39,100. Gerin gave it some thought, but ended up folding after all.

Mizrachi showed {4-Spades}{5-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{9-Clubs} for a straight and was up against {A-Clubs}{3-Spades}{5-Spades}{6-Spades}. Hoang needed a six or a three in order to stay alive, but the river was the {7-Clubs}.

"Alright, good game," Mizrachi said immediately while Hoang took one final look at the board. He did not catch up and was knocked out. Mizrachi is in the lead with just 22 players remaining and a bracelet in back-to-back WSOPE seasons looks to be in the making!

Sointula Doubles Through Cazals

Aubin Cazals raised to 2,600 from under the gun and it folded around to Jani Sointula who three-bet with a pot-sized raise. Cazals was his only caller and the two were heads up to see a flop of {9-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{4-Spades}.

Sointula moved out a bet of an unknown amount and Cazals put him all in. Sointula was all in for a total of 17,100 and the hands were tabled:

Cazals: {Q-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{5-Clubs}
Sointula: {A-Diamonds}{A-Spades}{7-Spades}{4-Hearts}

The turn was the {4-Diamonds}, bringing a third four for Sointula. The {J-Spades} completed the board and Sointula was able to clinch his double up.

Kollmann's Bluff Fails


Erich Kollmann raised to 2,500 from early position and Michael Schwartz called. Schwartz was to Kollmann's immediate left and heads up they went to see a flop.

The flop came down {9-Spades}{3-Hearts}{10-Clubs} and both players checked. On the turn the {3-Clubs} hit and Kollmann bet 6,000. Schwartz followed with the call.

On the river the {K-Hearts} showed up and Kollmann threw out 12,000. Schwartz tanked for a long time, but eventually he pulled the trigger. Kollmann only showed {a-Clubs}{9-Clubs} and mucked his other two cards when Schwartz showed {A-Diamonds}{A-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}.

Kollmann is no longer the chip leader while Schwartz has had a nice start of the day.
