Duczak's C-Bet is Enough

DegenOnTour • Level 1: 150-300, 0 ante

Boris Kuzmanovic raised to 800 from the cutoff and Aaron Duczak three-bet to 2,200. Andy Black sat in the big blind and he thought about it for a minute, but he decided to let go of his hand.

The flop came down {8-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{5-Spades} and Kuzmanovic checked to Duczak. Duczak continued with a bet of 2,800 and that's what took down the pot.

Lecker Wins an Early Pot

DegenOnTour • Level 1: 150-300, 0 ante

Fabrizio Gonzalez limped from the under-the-gun position in one of the first hands of the day. Yotam Lecker completed his small blind and Roger Teska checked from the big blind.

The flop was {Q-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} and it checked to the limper, Gonzalez. He went for the same bet size as they had preflop when he bet 300. Lecker called, but big blind Teska mucked his hand.

The turn was the {3-Hearts} and both players checked to see the {7-Hearts} river complete the board. Lecker went for the good old river check-raise strategy. He checked to Gonzalez who then bet 1,100. Lecker bumped it up to 3,300 and it took about half a minute before he got called.

Lecker opened up {Q-Spades}{3-Spades} for a full house and he took the pot down with that.

The second of two starting days of Event #10: €10,350 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event will start at 12 p.m. local time at the King's Resort. Yesterday's flight had a total of 140 entries and only 73 survived Day 1A. Players that have busted out of the first flight have the option to reenter the tournament on Day 1B, or on Day 2 as registration for the tournament is still open until the end of the dinner break after the fourth level on Day 2.

Marco Slacanac ended Day 1A as the chip leader after he bagged 544,300 in chips. Vladimir Geshkenbein (500,000) and Alex Foxen (411,700) are second and third in the chip counts. Players started with 100,000 and the average chip stack at the end of Day 1A was 191,781. The players today will play the same seven 90-minute levels that the players on Day 1A played. They will start in the level 100/300 without an ante. The ante will come into play in the third level of the day, which will be 200/400 with a big blind ante of 400.
