Aristidou Busts to Mai

Nível 8 : 400/800, 100 ante
Peter Aristidou
Peter Aristidou

From early position, Peter Aristidou moved all in for 6,450 and Tony Mai called from the button, the players in the blinds both folded. Aristidou showed {A-Clubs}{8-Clubs} and needed some help against the {A-Spades}{10-Spades} of Mai. On the flop {Q-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}, Mai's ten paired but Aristidou also had a flush draw.

#While the {K-Spades} turn didn't change much, the {6-Spades} river ended Aristidu's hopes in flight one and he left with a "well done" on his lips.

Benson Folds Queens; Shaikh Doubles with Aces

Nível 7 : 300/600, 75 ante

After a raise to 1,500, Adeel Shaikh three-bet to 3,300 with just under starting stack in total. Gary Benson gave it some thought and then mucked to see the initial raiser move all in. Shaikh snap-called and his opponent immediately asked "You got Aces?", which the Australian confirmed by flipping over {A-Diamonds}{A-Spades}.

"I folded queens. You were just too short," Benson added to the discussion and the opponent flipped over {K-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}. The board ran out {A-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{6-Hearts} and Shaikh doubled.

Dunst Eliminated by Nguyen

Nível 7 : 300/600, 75 ante

Tho "Tony" Nguyen has been responsible for the elimination of Tony Dunst. The latter three-bet shoved with {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs} and Nguyen woke up with the {K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds} from one seat over to hold up. Nguyen just now raised to 1,675 and the player in the small blind shoved for his last 20 big blinds.

Nguyen asked for a count and then pushed forward his stack of T-1,000 chips for the call with the words "I can't fold this hand." It was destined to be a very likely split pot with Nguyen's {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts} facing {A-Spades}{K-Clubs} and the board ran out {K-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{4-Spades}{10-Diamonds}.

Keenan's Aces Don't get Cracked

Nível 7 : 300/600, 75 ante

After a raise, James Keenan apparently just flat-called from the button and then faced a check-raise to 6,000 by the initial raiser on a flop of {9-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{4-Hearts}. Keenan then moved all in for just over 21,000 and his opponent called for a few big blinds less with the {Q-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}.

Keenan needed help with the {A-Diamonds}{A-Hearts} and picked up some outs on the {10-Hearts} turn. The dealer then burned and turned the {A-Spades} on the river and Keenan scored the big pot.

Daniel Levy

Daniel Levy is no longer in his seat and Nathan Gubieski confirmed the elimination of the Australian, who fell victim of a setup. Levy had flopped two pair with {A-}{4-}, but his opponent held {A-}{5-} for the higher two pair to send the Australian to the rail.
