River Magic For Friedman

Nível 13 : 2,000/4,000, 4,000 ante
Perry Friedman
Perry Friedman

Perry Friedman was all in preflop against one opponent for their 80,000 stack. Friedman still had to call off a significant percentage of his stack and it was a cooler when cards were flipped.

Opponent: {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}
Perry Friedman: {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}

The board ran out {8-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{8-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{k-Hearts} to give Friedman top boat against his opponent, who took his exit with grace.

''That's the second time I've cracked aces in this tournament'' said Friedman, as he munched on a snack.

Nick Goulart's Story

Nível 8 : 600/1,200, 1,200 ante
Nick Goulart
Nick Goulart

Nick Goulart has worked up a decent looking stack of around 110,000 thus far and is looking good in his first ever WSOP bracelet event.

Nick, who is mostly used to playing cash games or sit and gos with his military buddies over the years, is looking to get his first WSOP bracelet. Deservedly so after serving in the U.S. Air Force for the last 21 years, mostly out of Travis air base.

Nick credits his spouse, Val with helping improve his poker game, what an ode to her it would be if he could ship the entire event.

There are plenty of stories coming out of this year's Salute to Warriors event, stay tuned for all the up to date stories and hands.

Andion In Massive Pot On The River

Nível 7 : 500/1,000, 1,000 ante
Alejandro Andion
Alejandro Andion

Alejandro Andion was heads-up against the cutoff on a {7-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}, the pot already at 70,000.

According to another player at the table, who helpfully filled PokerNews in on the action, apparently after a pre-flop limp from early position, Andion's opponent had bet and Andion three-bet the button. After getting called he continued, was called, then continued again on the turn when checked to. The opponent called again.

This time, on the river his opponent lead into him for 31,000 chips only to have Andion move all in for 99,500 total. The opponent had Andion covered by a few thousand, and after thinking for a couple of minutes if not more, the opponent perhaps begrudgingly let his hand go.

Daniel Weinman
Daniel Weinman

Dan Weinman has graced the Salute to Warriors event with his presence.

Weinman was just in a pot three ways to a flop, where he bet from under the gun after the big blind checked to him. His sizing was 2,500 and one player folded before the big blind called on a {9-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{2-Clubs} board.

To a turn of {8-Hearts}, after the big blind checked once again, Weinman fired 8,000 which got a fold from his opponent.

Weinman is in the hunt for Player Of the Year after cashing a whopping 12 events so far this series. With a 2nd place in Event #9, followed by his first bracelet in Event #30.

Weinman, with a new haircut, is second on the POY leaderboard behind Dan Zack.
