Daniel Colman opened to $3,000 and got a call from Paul Newey. Doug Polk made it $14,000 on the button, and only Newey saw the flop with him. Newey check-called $22,000, and it went check-check on the turn. Newey fired $32,000 on the river, and Polk thought about a minute before tossing in a call.
Newey announced a six, and Polk could beat that with . He now has more than $400,000.
Matthew Kirk opened for a raise and called a three-bet from small blind Sam Trickett to $17,000. Both checked the flop, and Trickett check-called $20,000 on the turn. He then check-called called $30,000 on the river, and his proved good.
Trickett's up to $316,000, while Kirk's down to $112,000.
Matt Kirk cold-called a Doug Polk three-bet to $17,000 after Paul Newey opened, and Scott Seiver made it $77,000 to go from the straddle. Only Kirk called, but he folded immediately to a small flop bet.
With 10 hours of cash action in the books, players packed their bags and headed out late last night at the Super High Roller Cash Game, with Antonio Esfandiari and Doyle Brunson having booked big wins while Jean-Robert Bellande and Matt Kirk took hefty losses.
The game is set to resume with a tentatively scheduled 3:30 p.m. start time here in Las Vegas at the Aria. We've just been given a line-up sheet for the $400/$800/$200 cash game, which features a $250,000 minimum buy-in.
It's a bit of a younger crowd than yesterday with more of an online poker background. Nosebleed cash superstar Doug Polk will be an interesting addition to the lineup. The shorter the table, the more in his comfort zone Polk will be, so we'll see how he adjusts to sitting eight-handed. Plus, holdover Matthew Kirk was the most aggressive player at the table yesterday and is now seated on Polk's left, which should make for a fun dynamic.
