This Bag is Chainsaw-Approved

Nível 7 : 150/300, 25 ante

Allen Kessler got our attention to show us that he had Doyle Brunson's empty chip bag from the razz event. "Don't you wanna take a picture," Kessler asked.

He was very proud of his Brunson-signed bag and thought it would be "especially cool if he's still in."

He will be disappointed to find out that Brunson has busted, but this reporter suspects that he will still hang on to his souvenir.

Petersen's Aces Need a Medic

Mickey Petersen's aces got cracked.
Mickey Petersen's aces got cracked.

PokerStars Team Online Pro Mickey Petersen has been nursing a short stack for most of the day and seems unable to get anything going. He sat in the small blind with 5,300 chips and pushed all in after the hijack raised to 650 and the cutoff called. The initial raiser folded and 2008 bracelet-winner Nenad Medic in the cutoff called. Petersen flipped up {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}, looking to be poised to double, and Medic needed lots of help with {k-Hearts}{j-Hearts}. The board flopped badly for Petersen with {a-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{2-Hearts}, as Medic had made a flush. Petersen needed the board to pair or to find the fourth ace in the deck, but the turn and river of {8-Hearts} and {q-Spades} were of no assistance, and Petersen was forced to leave the table. Medic now sits on a stack of 14,200.

Cunningham Finds a Double

Nível 7 : 150/300, 25 ante

We caught the action with a board of {5-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{8-Hearts} and Allen Cunningham had bet 2,000 from the button. His opponent made the call and the river was the {4-Diamonds}. Cunningham's opponent checked and Cunningham stacked his last 4,950 and slid it toward the pot.

His opponent made the quick call, but mucked as Cunningham tabled the {k-Clubs}{j-Clubs} for top pair.

Peters Poised For Another Run

Nível 7 : 150/300, 25 ante

David Peters has built himself a healthy stack and we had seen him chipping up, but weren’t sure exactly how he got there.

So, we caught up with him at the start of dinner break and he let us know that there was one big hand where his pocket kings were able to beat queens and ace-king. “That pot was good for about 15K,” Peters told us.

Peters has three cashes at the WSOP so far this year and they have all been fairly deep runs. It’s still early, but he’s trying to position himself for another run deep into day two.
