Seiver Gives Up

Andrew Robl opened for $2,500 and got three-bet to $8,500 by Patrik Antonius. Scott Seiver made it $24,000 to go from the button and Robl called. Antonius decided to let them duke it out heads up, and the flop came {8-Clubs}{a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}. Action checked through, and Robl checked the {j-Clubs}. Seiver bet $38,000, and Robl called. Both checked the {4-Spades}, and Seiver couldn't beat {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}.

Kirk Salty; Opts for Second PLO Flip Against Robl

Matthew Kirk
Matthew Kirk

After being bluffed by Andrew Robl, Matthew Kirk was vocally salty.

"How could you do that?" he asked. Kirk, who stated he didn't want to come back to the game after dinner, was apparently upset that Robl had talked him into it and then had the gall to bluff him like he did.

Robl offered him the chance to do another pot-limit Omaha flip for his stack, and Kirk accepted for his last $90,000 or so.

Each player was dealt four cards facedown, and then the dealer put out the {8-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{5-Diamonds} flop and {3-Diamonds} turn before Scott Seiver instructed her to put the river facedown. Kirk and Robl then began to peel their hands. While we didn't get a good look at their cards, we do know neither player made much. Heading into the river, all Kirk had was a pair of threes, which was good as Robl held what appeared to be {k-}{q-}{j-}{6-}.

Robl could win it with a lot of cards, and the {6-Hearts} river was one of them. Kirk quickly collected his bag and made a beeline for the exit, which prompted a short break in the cash game action.

Robl Pulls Monster Bluff

Paul Newey raised to $4,500 in the cutoff, and Matthew Kirk reraised to $18,000 in the small blind. Andrew Robl wanted to play for more and raised it to $50,000 from the big blind. Newey got out of the way, and Kirk put $100,000 in.

Robl opted to call after some thought, and {2-Spades}{2-Clubs}{7-Clubs} flopped. As has been the norm in many four and five-bet preflop pots at this table, Kirk fired small with $35,000. Robl contemplated a bit before calling, and the {a-Hearts} arrived on the turn. Kirk bet $50,000 this time, and Robl thought a couple of minutes and counted out his stack. He decided to move all in, and the Australian, who only had $90,000 behind, snap-folded.

Robl tossed {q-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} into the middle, showing the bluff and causing the table to go wild.

"If it's anything but a f****** ace I'm all in on the turn," Kirk said with disgust, adding that he had nothing as well. "So stupid. It's the only card I don't go all in."

"Look at the glow he has right now," Scott Seiver said of Robl.

Colman vs. Trickett: One Rivers Quads

Daniel Colman
Daniel Colman

Five players put in $2,500 each preflop and took a flop of {8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}. Scott Seiver checked from the small blind, Sam Trickett bet $6,000 from the big, and two other players folded. Daniel Colman then flatted from the button, Seiver got out of the way, and it was heads-up action to the {A-Hearts} turn.

Trickett was first to act and wasted little time in betting $22,000, which elicited another call from Colman. After the {7-Clubs} completed the board on the river, Trickett fired out $35,000 and Colman thought for a few moments before raising to $100,000 straight. Trickett wasted little time in making the call, but was left shaking his head when Colman tabled the {7-Spades}{7-Hearts} for quads.

Trickett fell to $410,000 after the hand, while Colman, one of the game's biggest winners, brought his stack up to $591,000.

Polk Back to Par

Doug Polk raised to $2,400 and got three-bet to $9,000 by Andrew Robl. Polk came back with a small four-bet to $22,000, and Robl shoved. Polk quickly called off his $126,000, and he was ahead with {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} versus {a-Spades}{q-Hearts}.

The players agreed to run it twice, and Robl found trip queens as {q-Spades}{8-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} hit the board, but Polk found the {k-Spades} river to secure the first half. Neither player hit anything on a {5-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{8-Spades} run out, and Polk scooped the pot to get to $255,000, good for a small profit if he hasn't reloaded at all. Robl, meanwhile, is down a bit to $1.3 million.

Faulty Deck

Doug Polk

Doug Polk opened for a raise and got a call from big blind Daniel Colman, who quickly check-folded the flop.

A non-descript hand for sure, except for one minor detail: the flop had {a-}{q-Clubs}{q-Clubs}. Players are reconstructing the hand to give everyone their money back and there's going to be a short break.

"You're a Beast Paul"

Scott Seiver raised to $3,500 and then called when Paul Newey three-bet to $9,000. The {q-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{9-Spades} flop saw Seiver check-call a bet of $12,000, and then both players checked the {J-Hearts} turn. When the {2-Diamonds} completed the board on the river, Seiver checked for a third time and Newey bet $20,000.

Seiver thought for a solid minute before making the call, but mucked just as soon as Newey tabled the {j-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} for two pair. Newey chipped up to $535,000 after the hand, while Seiver, who originally bought in for $250,000, dropped a bit to $619,000.

"You're a beast Paul," Andrew Robl complimented him after the hand.
