Hakim Ready for Another One

Nível 18 : 3,000/6,000, 1,000 ante
Jeffrey Hakim
Jeffrey Hakim

In a pre flop all in Jeffrey Hakim just had {A-Clubs}{A-Spades} against Rasmus Agerskov's {A-Diamonds}{8-Spades}.

The flop was pretty comfortable for Hakim with {A-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}. The {5-Diamonds} on the turn sealed the deal and Hakim was already sure of busting his Danish opponent. The {8-Hearts} on the river didn't do much, but Frenchman Jerome Zerbib screamed at the top of lungs. He thought Hakim had suffered a horrendous beat but quickly recovered and apologized.

Zerbib is an emotional player, that we're sure of after a day with shouts of joy and rants of misfortune.

Why Poker Will Never Be Like an Action Movie

Staring at the clock at a poker tournament is like watching the denouement of an action movie. But even though the bubble burst today with red, blinking figures reading 00:01, we never reached armageddon. The PokerStars blog explains how Stephen Chidwick defused the bomb and saved the world (at the cost of his tournament life).

Geilich Chipping Up Steadily

Nível 18 : 3,000/6,000, 1,000 ante
Ludovic Geilich
Ludovic Geilich

Ludovic Geilich is a happy man at the moment, talking strategy and hand ranges with a couple of his table mates. He earlier claimed to have been card dead all day but that hasn’t stopped his increasing his stack. As he succinctly explained to the table: “Had one oh five bascically trebled through and nobody’s seen anything. COME ON!”

Aces Cracked Twice

Nível 18 : 3,000/6,000, 1,000 ante

Two hands from the feature table, both involving Pasquale Grimaldi and both saw aces getting cracked.

In the first Julia Vassort was all-in for 104,000 with {A-Spades}{A-Clubs} from under-the-gun+1 and Grimaldi, who had 180,000 total, made the call with {9-Diamonds}{9-Spades}. The {5-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{9-Spades}{10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} board meant Grimaldi flopped a set and Vassort was eliminated.

A couple of hands later Grimaldi opened with {A-Spades}{A-Hearts} and then called after Gheorghe Gradinaru moved all-in for 209,000 with {8-Diamonds}{8-Spades}. The {8-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{6-Spades} board gave Grandinaru the win and boosted him to 437,000 whilst Grimaldi is down to 83,000.

A few hands later Grimaldi was out when his K-6 lost out to Florian Montes' K-Q.

Huge Double Up for Tatu Maenpaa

Nível 18 : 3,000/6,000, 1,000 ante

Tatu Maenpaa is now up to almost 700,000 after getting a huge double up against Giuliano Bendinelli. The Italian opened to 12,000, Maenpaa three-bet to 29,000 on the button, back on Bendinelli he four-bet to 72,000. After a couple of minutes thought Maenpaa five-bet to 120,000 total with roughly 220,000 behind.

Bendinelli had roughly 415,000 behind and he elected to use all of it and announced all-in, after a quick look at his cards Maenpaa announced call.

Bendinelli: {A-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}
Maenpaa: {K-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}

The {10-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} board kept the Finn in front, he had 339,000 to start the hand so is up to 690,000 whilst Bendinelli is down to 151,000.

Ziyard Can't Win

Nível 18 : 3,000/6,000, 1,000 ante

Zimnan Ziyard hasn't been running all that well the last couple of levels. First he had to fold an overpair of jacks on the river against Dimitri Holdeew who check-raised the river big.

Just now he lost with {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs} preflop all in against Carlo De Benedittis' {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds} for 59,000 each. The {3-Spades}{Q-Hearts}{2-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} board wasn't doing the gentleman who started the day out in second place any good.
