Stevens Shoves into Shorty

Nível 9 : 500/1,000, 100 ante

Terence Stevens opened to 3,100 from early position and all opponents, including Kevin Blackwood on the button, folded - Almost all. The player in the big blind was curious enough to call, and then check the {4-Hearts}{10-Spades}{8-Diamonds} flop. Stevens glanced over at the stack of his opponent, which amounted to roughly 15 big blinds, and then moved all in.

"I guess I am supposed to get it in preflop," the short stack said, folding and claiming pocket nines.

Farrell Chips Up

Nível 9 : 500/1,000, 100 ante

Niall Farrell joined the small blind in defending his big blind against an early position raise.

The flop fell {a-}{10-}{7-} with two diamonds and Farrell joined the small blind again, checking. The original raiser made it 3,000, the small blind shipped it in for 25,000 and Farrell called. The original raiser released and the small blind showed {a-}{j-}.

Farrell had {a-}{10-} and two pair held after a turn that gave the small blind a straight draw and a brick on the river.

Liu Doubles Through Park

Nível 9 : 500/1,000, 100 ante

Jun Young Park raised to 2,200 and called the three-bet of Xuan Liu from one seat over for 5,100. The Korean then fired the {9-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} flop for 4,800 and called the shove of Liu for 16,800 with the {K-Clubs}{Q-Clubs} for a flush draw.

Liu was ahead with the {A-Diamonds}{A-Hearts} and no further club showed up, instead the board completed with the {5-Spades} turn and {2-Diamonds} river to give the Canadian a straight.

The table broke straight after and there are just nine tables remaining in the Exhibition Hall.

Mooney Felted

Nível 9 : 500/1,000, 100 ante

John Thomson already had a bigger stack and just added the remainder of Geoffrey Mooney's chips to it as well. Thomson had raised and was flat-called by Mooney to see a flop of {A-}{10-}{8-} with two clubs. Thomson continued and then called the shove of the fellow Aussie with {A-}{Q-}, Mooney only had {A-}{6-}.

Fish Knocks Out Two Shorties

Nível 9 : 500/1,000, 100 ante

First Darryll Fish looked up a short stack for 6,000 with {A-}{Q-} versus {K-}{Q-} and won, the same then happened again for 3,500 with {A-}{10-} versus {K-}{J-}. With those two eliminations, the American has almost doubled up the stack and moved up to more than average.

At the same table, Jesse Sylvia is trying the same but his all in move was not rewarded with a call.

Liu Shoves; Park Busts One

Nível 9 : 500/1,000, 100 ante

Jun Young Park opened and then folded to the shove of table neighbor Xuan Liu. One hand later, the Korean flat-called the all in of a short stack for 1,900 and the player in the big blind called as well. On the flop {A-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}, Park bet 3,100 and that isolated successfully.

The short stack held {4-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}, Park the {7-Clubs}{7-Spades} for a set. Neither the {Q-Hearts} turn nor the {10-Spades} river changed anything and Park claimed the pot to boost his already impressive stack.

Marcus Stacked

Nível 8 : 400/800, 100 ante

Van Marcus, Australian Poker Hall of Fame member, may very well become the first player on six digits in Flight 4. A few minutes ago he raised to 1,500 with pocket sixes and found two callers, heading to a flop of {Q-}{9-}{6-}. Marcus fired 3,000 and was raised to 7,000 before pushing all in. The opponent called for another 7,000 on top with {A-}{Q-} but stood no chance against Van's bottom set.
