Re: WSOP Main Event

Who,s going to win then ? my 3 picks are Tj cloutier, william thorsen and mmmmmmm Chris Ferguson. lets see if anyone on here can pick the winner or more likely someone to make the final table:ok
OK then, my fairly predictable 3 to make the final table are - Phil Ivey, Carlos Mortensen, Andy Black. I expect GaF top advise that they have all been knocked out already :(

Tax free for brits' date=' not for yanks. ha ha.[/quote'] There was an article in Poker Player a couple of months ago, it appears that if you win then 30% will be withheld. You can claim it back, but they recommended that you get the forms filled in before you go as it could ages to get money from Uncle Sam.

Sat, 07 Jul 2007 03:52:26 Andy Black Eliminated In two hands and in quick succession, Andy Black is out. First hand: A player limps, Black raises to 24,000 on the button, and his opponent calls. The flop comes J-10-6 with two hearts and both players check. The turn is the 8d.gif. Black's opponent checks, he bets 8,000 and is called. The river is the 3h.gif. Black bets 15,000 and his opponent calls. Black announces he has nothing. His opponent has 7-7 and takes it. Second hand: Soon after, Black is busted when on a 3-4-3-7 board, Black bets, another player goes all in, and Black calls with 4-5. His opponent has A-A, the river is a jack, and Black is out and leaves in a hurry. Black was the chip leader for a good part of the day, but it did not last. 450 left at the end of day 1..... Teddy Sheringham out Julian Gardner 143,700 Joe Beevers 96,000

Re: WSOP Main Event 4 minutes ago The First Bust Out of Day 1b One player raises to 300, another player reraises from a blind position to 1,600, and the first player calls. The flop comes 8-4-2, and the player in the blind position bets 3,000. His opponent min-raises to 6,000, and the first player moves all in. His opponent calls with 4-4 for middle set, and the first player shows J-J for an overpair. The next two cards are blanks, and the guy with pocket jacks (who was in the blind position) goes home as the first bustout of Day 1b. Yes, he went broke in the first ten minutes with pocket jacks, no set, no draw. According to the opening seating chart, the player eliminated was Timo Maymann. But we haven't been able to confirm that. 20 minutes ago Instant I.D. As 2006 World Champion Jamie Gold tried to enter the Amazon Room he found he didn't have his seat card. And as security won't let anyone inside without their seat card, that posed a bit of a problem. Gold wanted to go to the registration window but security wouldn't let him in without I.D. Well, there are HUGE posters of every Main Event champion hanging around the room and Gold reached inside the frame of the door, pointed up, and said, "Dude, look up, that's me!" Other people waiting outside the tournament room verified Gold's identity and the guard let him inside to get a new seat card. Sat, 07 Jul 2007 10:41:25 A couple hours to go.... There is only a couple of hours to go before the start of Day 1B. Yesterday there were 1287 starters for Day 1a. Rumor has it there will be quite a few more today. Stay tuned as we bring you all the action as it unfolds from the Amazon Room.

Re: WSOP Main Event

0 minutes ago The Second Bust Out of Day 1b One player raises, and gets four callers. Five players see a flop of K-Q-4 with two spades. The original raiser bets 1,000, another player raises to 3,500, and the raiser calls. (The other three players fold.) The turn card is the 9s.gif, putting three spades on the board. Unfortunately, we don't know how the action went on the turn. The river card pairs the board with another Q, so the board is K-Q-4-9-Q with three spades. There's a lot of potential on that board. On the river, both players get all their money in the pot. The original raiser excitedly says, "Top pair" and shows K-J offsuit. He has two pair, kings and queens, with a jack kicker. The other player says, "Full house," and shows 4-4 for fours full of queens. The player with K-J missed being the first bustout by about a minute.

Re: WSOP Main Event Don't want to steal your thunder GaF but i really can't believe some of the play: Mike Wattel Eliminated Flop: 7c.gif4c.gif2c.gif After a huge pot was built preflop and on the flop, Mike Wattel pushed all-in after the turn was the 6s.gif. His opponent called and Mike said, "Well, I've got two aces," and turned over pocket rockets. His opponent, surprised by the strength of his hand, sighed heavily as he turned over Ac.gifJh.gif. Unfortuantly for Mike, the river was the 9c.gif, giving his opponent the nut flush. Ouch!! :loon Must be well gutting to go out to crap like that.

Re: WSOP Main Event

is our 1% playing yet gaf?
No idea mate - completely forgot :loon 25 minutes ago Simon 'Aces' Trumper Survives Quad Jacks With the board showing Js.gif9d.gif6h.gifJh.gif on the turn, a player bets 5,000, and Simon 'Aces' Trumper calls. The river card is the Kh.gif, and the first player bets 7,000. Trumper thinks for a bit, saying, "There's only one hand that beats me here." He thinks a little longer, and simply calls, leaving himself 2,000 in chips as he shows Kc.gifKs.gif for top full house on the river. Most people would have put their last 2,000 in the pot there, but Trumper's read was correct, as his opponent shows Jc.gifJd.gif for quad jacks. Trumper is down to 2,000, but most players in his situation would already be headed for the exit.

Re: WSOP Main Event Another legend is out: 9 minutes ago Barny Boatman Eliminated This hand occurred late in the last level. After a flop of Ah.gifQh.gif3s.gif, Barny Boatman is all in with As.gifKd.gif. His opponent shows Ad.gifKh.gif, and they both have top pair, top kicker. But his opponent is freerolling on a runner-runner heart flush, and the turn card is the Jh.gif. Anything but a heart is a chop, while a heart would send Boatman home in one of the most frustrating ways possible. The river card is the 2h.gif. Barny Boatman is eliminated in an A-K offsuit vs. A-K offsuit situation.

Re: WSOP Main Event Overacting Can Invoke the Wrath of the Poker Gods An early position player raises, Roland De Wolfe reraises 1,800 more from middle position, and the first player thinks for a moment. He holds his cards out as if he is about to muck, and asks De Wolfe, "Will you show me your hand?" De Wolfe says he will. The other player says, "Show me one card," and De Wolfe says he will, but only after the other player folds. The first player apparently changes his mind, and says, "All in." De Wolfe calls, showing 10d.gif10s.gif. His opponent shows ah.gifas.gif, and it was all a bit hollywood routine to entice action from De Wolfe. But the poker gods did not think kindly of his actions. The board came qc.gif10h.gif9h.gifkh.gif9c.gif, and De Wolfe cracks the aces with a full house, tens full of nines, busting the other player. Roland De Wolfe is up to 50,000 in chips, and he's smiling.

Re: WSOP Main Event The Ultimate Roller-Coaster OK, get a load of this hand. Think your hands only get sucked out/re-sucked on the internet? Well it happens in the Main Event too. Michael Lindermeyer moved all in on a flop of Qc.gifJc.gif8h.gif holding J-J and his opponent called with A-K. When the 10d.gif hit on the turn, his opponent jumped out of his chair as he made a straight. However, the 8s.gif fell on the river, pairing the board and giving Lindermeyer the winning full house. Lindermeyer is up to 33,000 and is still catching his breath after that roller-coaster ride of emotions.

Re: WSOP Main Event Just interesting to know... David Singer Eliminated, Not Without Controversy On a flop of ks.gif7s.gif4d.gif and facing a bet of 3,000 from a late-position player David Singer moved all from the button for 9,450. Here's where the hand gets interesting. As David's opponent was contemplating his decision his cell phone rang -- he removed it from his pocket, glanced at it and turned it off. Singer said nothing at first but made a motion to the dealer. Then his opponent said "I'll just pay you off, I'll call." At this point Singer said, "His hand should be dead," and requested a ruling from the floorperson. When the floorperson heard the situation she called for the Tournament Director to make a ruling. After a re-enactment of exactly how the player touched his phone, the Tournament Director ruled that his hand was not dead and he would be allowed to play. Singer then requested a higher ruling, saying, "I have a drawing hand here and I obviously don't want him to be allowed to call." This request was denied and the players' hands were tabled, with Singer showing4s.gif5s.gif for bottom pair and a flush draw and his opponent holding kd.gifjd.gif for top pair. The turn 10h.gif and river 8d.gif did not help Singer and he has been eliminated. As he left the table he was asking for a refund, saying, "Ever since I have been here, I have been told that if you touch your phone during a hand then your hand is dead." At this point we don't know if that request will be considered but we do know that David Singer will not be playing Day Two of the Main Event, and he's not happy about it.

Re: WSOP Main Event Seidel Eliminated A short-stacked Erik Seidel moved all in with ks.gif5h.gif and was called by an opponent who tabled pocket sixes. The board came js.gif8c.gif8s.gif5h.gif6d.gif, which left Seidel bidding adieu to the 2007 WSOP, and a successful one at that.

Re: WSOP Main Event Definitely fixed :tongue2 Superhero Superheroes can stop bullets right? Well "Johnny World" Hennigan has proved that he has more than just a superhero name when he cracked his opponent's aces just prior to the break. All in preflop, Hennigan held qs.gifqd.gif while his opponent held ah.gifda.gif. The jd.gif6d.gif7c.gif flop was no help, nor was the turn jh.gif. However, in the nick of time, on the river, the superhero caught the qc.gif to eliminate his opponent.
