Re: WSOP Main Event

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.

Re: WSOP Main Event The Numbers You've All Been Waiting For After four days of Main Event play, the official numbers are in! 6,358 players entered the 2007 WSOP Main Event, creating a prizepool of $59,784,954. 621 places will be paid, and each player who cashes will be guaranteed at least $20,320. First place will win $8,250,000. 2,415 fewer players entered the Main Event in 2007 than in 2006, but this year's number is 739 higher than when Joe Hachem won it all in 2005. Phil Hellmuth Eliminated Phil Hellmuth was all in for 400 in the big blind. He woke up to A-Q and was in a race situation with an opponent who held 10c.gif10d.gif. The flop was jc.gifjs.gif9c.gif. The qc.gif on the turn paired Hellmuth up, but his opponent now had a club flush draw with the 10c.gif in his hand. The river was the 6c.gif, making his opponent's flush and eliminating Hellmuth from the Main Event. We're sure to be hearing about that runner-runner flush for years to come on ESPN's broadcasts. After his elimination, a barrage of cameras followed the Poker Brat out of the Amazon Room and into the hallway. As Nolan Dalla announced to the room that Hellmuth had been eliminated the entire room clapped and cheered... that he was gone.

Re: WSOP Main Event Jeffrey Ury Cracks Aces To Double Up The oldest player in WSOP history refuses to lose. He called a 1,300 raise with da.gifqd.gif and saw a very nice flop indeed -- qs.gif4s.gifqh.gif. His opponent moved in and Ury called, again announcing, "I have a hand." as he turned over his trips. The other player turned over ah.gifas.gif and everyone at the table cheered as Jeffrey doubled up to 18,400. John Phan Makes A Big Laydown Two early position players limped as did John Phan from the small blind. The big blind checked his option and the four players saw the flop of kc.gifks.gif10c.gif. Phan led out for 600 and got two calls. The turn card came the ah.gif. All three players checked. The river came the 6s.gif. Phan bet 4,000 and the next player to act raised to 10,000. The player in between called and Phan went into the tank. After a couple of minutes, he showed his cards -- qc.gifjc.gif -- to his side of the table before folding. The raiser had A-A for a full house and Phan seemed content with losing the minimum on the hand. Good Bit of Betting Juan Carlos "The Matador" Mortensen limps in from middle position. A middle position player next to him raises to 3,400 and the button re-raises to 10,000. Mortensen makes it 20,000 to go and both fold. He's up to 75,500.

Re: WSOP Main Event Some Creativity From early position, Jimmy Dahlquist limped into the pot . . . which is often an ominous sign. Limping from early position? Hmm. The limping came to an end when a player in late position raised to 2,000 and the big blind popped it up to 7K. That's when Dahlquist came over the top of them all with a 12K re-raise. In nature, this kind of behavior normally signifies "I HAVE ACES." The late position player folded his tent but the big blind chose to call. The flop came 8-7-8, the big blind moved all-in for his last 20K, and Dahlquist called. The big blind turned over pocket Queens, and Dahlquist turned over Ace...Eight. That most fortuitous flop gave Dahlquist trips and the pot, which put him up to 88,000 in chips. Imper1um Eliminates Himself Left with only around 10,000 in chips, Sorel "Imper1um" Mizzi led out for 3,000 preflop. His opponent raised back for another 8,000, putting Mizzi all-in. Mizzi made the call and showed 7s.gif6d.gif while his opponent showed 9c.gif9s.gif. The flop was kh.gifkd.gifqd.gif and Mizzi began packing his stuff. The turn was the 2d.gif and the river was the da.gif. "Good game, guys," Mizzi said as he began to walk from the table. The dealer and table had to inform him of the rivered flush he had just made.

Re: WSOP Main Event David Benyamine Has Been Eliminated After raising to 600 and getting one caller, Benyamine and his opponent saw a 8-Q-7 flop. Benyamine called his opponent's 3,000 flop bet, and after both players checked a King on the turn, Benyamine moved in when another 7 fell on the river. But Benyamine's A-Q ran into his opponent's 7-8, and that full house brought an end to Benyamine's main event Chip Reese Eliminated The action was folded to Chip Reese on the button who raised to 2,000. Young Australian Julian Powell made the call from the small blind and the big blind folded. The flop came down kc.gif10s.gif6s.gif and Powell checked. Reese made a bet of 4,000, and Powell raised to 17,000. Reese went into the tank for a long time, eventually moving in for just over 30,000. Powell made the call. Reese turned over qs.gif7s.gif for a flush draw, while Powell had top pair with kh.gifjd.gif. Unfortunately for Reese, no spades emerged to help him dig his way out, and he will not see Day Two of this year's main event.

Re: WSOP Main Event Gus Doubles Up On a flop of kc.gif7s.gif4d.gif, the BB leads out for 2,200 and Gus Hansen calls from the button. The turn card is the 3s.gif. The big blind bets 6,000 and Hansen makes the call. The river is the 10s.gif and the BB checks. Hansen moves all in for 13,675 and the BB calls. Hansen shows 6s.gif4s.gif for the backdoor flush, and the BB mucks. "Kid Poker" Takes Down a Big One Daniel Negreanu limped in from early position. Action folded around to the big blind who checked his option. The two took a flop heads up . . . 4h.gif3s.gifjs.gif The big blind bet 3,000 and Negreanu promptly called. The turn brought the 9c.gif. The big blind bet 10,000 and again, Negreanu looked him up. The river came the 6c.gif. Without hesitation, the big blind pushed out 20,000 chips. Daniel took his time, at one point saying "Why does that scare me so much? (as he pointed to the 4h.gif) Eventually Negreanu made the call. The big blind turned over jd.gif9h.gif but Daniel had that beat holding the 3h.gif3c.gif. Negreanu is now a force with 95,000. Theo Tran vs. Carlos Mortensen Board: 8d.gif5s.gif3c.gifas.gif7c.gif In early position, Theo Tran bets 1,500 and Carlos Mortensen calls. On the flop, Tran bets 2,500 and Mortensen makes it 6,000. Tran calls. On the turn, Tran checks. Mortensen bets 10,000 and Tran calls. On the river, Tran checks again, Mortensen makes it 14,000, and Tran calls. Mortensen shows 5-5 and is up to 75,000.

Re: WSOP Main Event Keikoan Wins 100K Pot! It is a battle of the blinds, between Fabio Monteiro and Matt Keikoan. Monteiro completes from the SB and Keikoran makes it 2,100 from the BB. Monteiro calls and the flop comes kh.gif7s.gif6s.gif. Monteiro check-raises to 30,000 behind a 3,000 bet from Keikoan and Keikoan makes the call. The turn card is the jc.gif. Monteiro fires out 30,000 and Keikoan moves all in for 67,000. Monteiro insta-calls and opens as.gifkd.gif, but Keikoan has the ks.gifjs.gif. The river card is the 2d.gif giving Keikoan the pot and taking his stack up to 170,000. Brandi Hawbaker Eliminated Board: kh.gif6d.gif5c.gifqd.gif7d.gif Preflop, in middle position, Teddy "Iceman" Monroe raises and Brandi Hawbaker re-raises all in for 11,000. Monroe calls and shows kc.gifqc.gif. Hawbaker has as.gif7s.gif. The flop brings a K and Hawbaker is out. After the hand: Monroe: "Sorry, Brandi." Hawbaker: "Go **** yourself." 17 minutes ago | Posted by Reporter Players Are On a Break Tournament staff are coloring up the 25 chips and then the players will go on a break.

Re: WSOP Main Event Rule #1 - Don't Bust Joe Hachem Joe Hachem showed up at his table shortly before tournament director Jack Effel went through a reminder of some of the most important rules. Hachem addressed his table and said, "Remember rule #1, boys. Don't bust Joe Hachem." The River, Of Course There are a million bad beat stories in the big city, and Rob Kovar now has one of his own. After seeing a 10-10-7 flop Kovar and Cyrus Farzad ended up with all the money in the middle. Kovar held Kings, Farzad had Queens. A nine on the turn...and a Queen on the river to crack Kovar's Kings and send him out of the tournament. Montel Williams Chip Mystery Solved Tournament Directors Jack Effel and Jimmy Sommerfeld went to the surveillance tapes regarding Montel Williams' missing 5,000 in chips and discovered that the chips were mis-counted before they went into his bag at the end of Day 1. Williams indeed had the correct amount in his bag (15,900) though 20,900 was written on the front and included in the official end of Day 1 chip counts. Williams was satisfied with the ruling and thanked them for their efforts.

Re: WSOP Main Event Joe Hachem Eliminated Joe Hachem raises to 2,700, the small blind calls, and the big blind calls. The flop comes as.gif10c.gif10d.gif, the small blind checks, the big blind bets 12,000, Joe Hachem moves all in, the small blind folds, and the big blind calls with da.gifqh.gif for two pair, aces and tens, with a queen kicker. Hachem shows ah.gif8c.gif for two pair, aces and tens, with an eight kicker. Hachem is in trouble, and needs to catch an ace, a king, or runner-runner eights to stay alive. The last two cards come 7d.gif9s.gif, and the queen kicker plays. Joe Hachem, the 2005 WSOP Main Event Champion, is eliminated from this year's event.
