With two limps in front of him, Mukul Pahuja moved all in for 5,925 total. The blinds quickly folded and the two limpers joined in the folding frenzy as well. Pahuja, the World Poker Tour Player of the Year, is looking to add to his impressive year and add to the 8 WSOP cashes he already has.
We walk by Tony Cousineau's table and he shares with us his Millionaire Maker double entry story. "I played the Razz until 3 am last night," he started.
"There was no way I was getting here at 11 am so I decided to skip Day 1a and got down here to play 1b. I busted out within the first hour. I was all set to go home when another player suggested I just late reg for Day 1a. I figured it was still 15 big blinds and with this prize pool it was worth a shot so here I am."
Cousineau has chipped up a bit since he sat down and if anyone knows how to grind a short stack, it's Cousineau.
We get to the table with approximately 9,000 in the pot and Russell Thomas all in on a board. An older gentleman two seats to his left called and a player in the 10 seat tanked for a bit before folding face up.
"You got me?" asked Thomas, as he turned over .
"Not yet," said his opponent, turning over .
The turn was the giving Thomas's opponent a straight and leading him to say "now I do."
Only a ten would save the day for the 2012 WSOP Main Event 4th place finisher but it was not to be as the river was the .
We got to the table with the board showing and a short stacked Nick Guagenti all in for his last 2,400. His lone opponent tanked for a bit and then made the call. Guagenti turned over and was ahead of the his opponent held. He would have to fade the gut-shot straight draw or a 6 to stay alive. The turn was the and the river was the and the young pro scored the double up.
