WSOP Main Event

Re: WSOP Main Event Phil Ivey Has Been Eliminated After his stack was whittled down to around 35,000, Phil Ivey came over the top for all his chips after a kh.gif8c.gifac.gif flop. His opponent called and showed ah.gif8h.gif for two pair, while Ivey had a flush draw with qc.gif9c.gif. The 3h.gif and 6s.gif on the turn and river didn't complete Ivey's flush and one of the most feared players in the game has been eliminated.

Re: WSOP Main Event Mike Matusow Has Been Eliminated Down to his last 10,000, Mike "The Mouth" Matusow moved all in from the small blind after the player in the cutoff raised to 1,200. The other player called and flipped over pocket jacks, which had Matusow's pocket threes crushed. Despite a desperate cry of "Put a three out there!" from someone in the crowd, the board ran out qd.gif2h.gif9s.gif10c.gif10h.gif and Matusow's Main Event was at an end.

Re: WSOP Main Event Andy Bloch Has Been Eliminated A player in middle position raised to 1,200 and Bloch, holding kh.gifks.gif, raised to 4,000. The other player called and Bloch made a set on the 3h.gifkd.gif9d.gif flop. Both players checked, and on the turn came a card that Bloch will probably see in his nightmares, the jd.gif. His opponent checked, and when Bloch bet out for 5,000 the other player moved in for 7,000 more. Bloch called and found that his opponent held the da.gif10d.gif and had indeed made a flush. The 4d.gif on the river didn't pair the board and Bloch's day was brought to an end.

Re: WSOP Main Event Shannon Elizabeth Eliminated On a flop of Q-J-10, Shannon Elizabeth was all in with K-K. Her opponent flipped over Q-J for two pair. She still had outs with an open-ended straight draw. Unfortunately, she missed her draw and headed to the rail. "At least I went out with Pocket Kings," the 'American Pie' star said with a smile as ESPN cameras followed her out the door.

Re: WSOP Main Event Greg Raymer Eliminated Greg Raymer's J-T couldn't hold up to his opponent's 6-6 on a board of qh.gif9h.gif6c.gif2d.gifjd.gif and he made an early exit from this year's Main Event.

Re: WSOP Main Event Mr. Peanut vs. Mike "The Mouth" Matusow: Round 1 Mike "The Mouth" Matusow was playing tight poker for most of the afternoon. That is, until Mr. Peanut walked by the Bluff feature table where Mike is seated. Mike motioned to Mr. Peanut to approach the table. Upon approach, Mike jumped out of his seat and tried to wrestle Mr. Peanut to the ground. Mr. Peanut survived the sneak attack, and barely got away from Mike's clutches. After moving to the rail, Mr. Peanut began making gestures around his stomach, motioning that he won the tiff thanks to Mike's weight. Winner of Round 1: Mr. Peanut We'll keep you updated as the fight continues. "The Mouth" vs. Mr. Peanut: Round 2 After Mr. Peanut left Mike "The Mouth" Matusow's table area, the entire table began making jokes at Mike over the fight. "What's the matter, Mike? Don't like the nuts?" "He started it with me," Mike responded. "Everyone here saw it. He actually punched me when I tried to grab him." After the tournament staff moved T.J. Cloutier to Mike's table, Mike said, "TJ! You missed it! I just tackled Mr. Peanut! I don't know how I couldn't take him down..." Winner of Round 2: Mr. Peanut

Re: WSOP Main Event

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 :(
So, 2 out of 3 of my picks didn't make it past day 1 - any news on smiley Carlos? And is anybody else going to make a rash guess at the winner?

Re: WSOP Main Event 8 minutes ago Early and Unofficial Numbers The early (and unofficial) number of entrants today is 1,772, but registration will be open for another half hour. That sets the tentative total number of players at 6,347 or so -- more than in 2005, but less than in 2006. Given the conditions of the post-UIGEA poker world, that's a pretty impressive number.

Re: WSOP Main Event

I play again tomorrow. I've got an hour to find a hand to double up with before things get a bit desperate I reckon.
Do you have a table number yet? Or do you find that out tomorrow?

Yeah, I've got that. It's Table 58. It was supposed to be random, yet I'll be sat next to the same guy as I was in at the last table. :eyes

Re: WSOP Main Event Quads over Quads When you check with pocket threes and the flop is 7-3-3, you're trying to set up the kill. So it was for Ramesh Bavireddy. His opponent had pocket sevens! Fireworks were about to happen and on the river, the case 7 fell for quad sevens over quad threes. Christian Grundtvig his the case 7 for the miracle win. Bavireddy stood up and said, "That's unbelievable," in total shock, just like a bolt of lightning hit him as it happened in the film "The Cincinnati Kid." Grundtvig was up to 34,000 after the hand... but it wasn't easy.

Re: WSOP Main Event 4692b089285b7.jpg Hellmuth Arrives with his entourage Hellmuthian Arrival Phil Hellmuth was supposed to arrive in an Ultimate Bet racing car. Since he crashed it in the parking lot yesterday afternoon, Hellmuth arrived in a limo wearing a racing uniform and carrying a helmet. Eleven women (each representing one of the eleven bracelets he's won) greeted him and escorted the Poker Brat from the parking lot down the long corridor in the convention center leading up to the Amazon Ballroom. It was a frenzy of media and fans who chased him down the hallway like he was the reincarnation of The Beatles. Hellmuth posed for photos and signed autographs as ESPN's film crew captured his every move. He finally entered the Amazon Ballroom, two hours late, and with his eleven escorts trailing behind him. He eventually took his empty seat. His tablemates joked that he should wear the racing helmet so he didn't have to hide his face with his hands. Phil Hellmuth has finally arrived to play in the WSOP main event. He begins his quest for bracelet #12 and his second overall World Championship. Although Hellmuth was not seriously injured, he woke up this morning sore and stiff. He admitted, "I've won tournaments before when I was hurt. I've won bracelets when I've been in more pain."

Re: WSOP Main Event whats going on with the dealers? quads galore!!!!! John Racener Slow Plays Quad Jacks There was 4,000 in the pot and jc.gifjs.gif6d.gif5c.gif was on the board. The 3h.gif came on the river, Racener bet 6,000 and his opponent called. Racener turned over jh.gifjd.gif for quads, his opponent mucked his cards and Racener moved up to 46,250. Tommy Vu Doubles Up With Quads After a flop of 10c.gif9s.gif5d.gif, Tommy Vu moves all in for 4,500, and his opponent calls with ah.gifas.gif. Vu shows 9d.gif9h.gif for middle set. The turn card is the 3h.gif, and the river card is the 9c.gif -- Vu finishes the hand with quads, doubling up to 11,500 in chips. Tommy Vu is in a wheelchair today, but we have yet to determine the cause. Other than the the fact that he is in a wheelchair, he appears to be in good health. It's Fun to Flop Quads On a 9-5-5-A-2 board, Jan Johannessen bet 2,000 on the river and Oscar Schweinebarth called. Johannessen proudly displayed his 5-5 for flopped quads, while Schweinebarth showed K-K. Johannessen was up to 14,000 after the hand. Michael Craig - Author, Two-Time WSOP Final Tablist With the board showing ac.gifah.gif3d.gif2d.gifas.gif on the river, Michael Craig bets 2,000, and his opponent calls. Craig shows da.gif10h.gif for quad aces, and his opponent mucks. Craig is up to about 23,000 here in the first hour. Craig has reached two WSOP final tables this year, and he is really hoping to make it three. Day 1D= Quads Mania! On a flop of K-J-T, James English moved all in for 14,000 holding T-T and was called by an opponent with K-K. Miraculously for English, the case ten fell on the turn, making him quads and doubling his stack up to 30,000. all in the last 2 hrs ffs

Re: WSOP Main Event Theo Tran Makes a Good Laydown to Carlos Mortensen Theo Tran bet 1,500, Carlos Mortensen raised 4,500 total, and Tran called. The flop came 10d.gif9s.gif7c.gif, Mortensen bet 7,000 and Tran shows his pocket queens before he folds. Mortensen shows his pocket aces, and then rakes in the pot. Razor Plays Like a Little Girl "Cocktails!" John "The Razor" Phan yelled from his table after winning a hand. Phan made it 1,200 to go preflop when his opponent came over the top for another 2,800. Phan called and the flop was qc.gif5c.gif3c.gif. Phan checked the flop, but his opponent led out for 5,000 and Phan made the call. The 9c.gif fell on the turn and both players checked. After the 10c.gif on the river, and with the board showing all clubs, Phan led out for 3,000 and his opponent called. Phan turned over 8s.gif8c.gif for the flush and his opponent mucked. "I need more cocktails," Phan said after winning the hand. "I'm playing like a little girl trying to donk off all my chips." Magician Gives Away Secrets Antonio Esfandiari, known for being a magician before turning to poker, wants to let everyone in on a bit of poker strategy: "Everytime I have a decision to make, I think, 'What would David Benyamine do?' and then I do the opposite," Esfandiari said. "It usually works out." Esfandiari and Benyamine have been at the same table for the second part of the day, both involved in multiple pots, and both jokingly giving one another a hard time.
