Dario Sammartino Chips Up Quickly to Start Strong in First $10K PLO8

Nível 10 : 800/1,600, 0 ante
Dario Sammartino
Dario Sammartino

Dario Sammartino didn't let a bit of a late entrance slow him down in Event #51: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship. Sammartino arrived a little more than halfway through the 10-level day, and he accumulated chips in fast and furious fashion, turning his 50,000 starting stack into 294,300 by day's end.

The young Italian has had a monstrously successful live tournament career, piling up over $6.5 million in cashes, but he has yet to capture World Series of Poker gold. He came close already this year when he finished third in the $111,111 High Roller for One Drop, and he's shaping up as a strong contender here in the first running of this PLO8 event.

Current WSOP Player of the Year leader Ray Henson also put a big stack in a bag, finishing with 169,200. He's having a fantastic WSOP thus far with a trio of final table finishes, including third place in the $1,500 PLO8.

Others bagging north of 200,000 included Ryan Miller (228,700), Sean Remz (224,700), Josh Arieh (212,500), and Tommy Chen (209,200) and Joe Tehan (200,300).

Overall, 116 players of the 207 total entrants made it through. Payout information was released by the WSOP after the close of registration when Level 9 began, and the impressive turnout resulted in a first-place prize of $511,147.

Some players who are no longer in contention for that half-a-million include Brandon Shack-Harris, Daniel Negreanu, Mike Gorodinsky, Stephen Chidwick, Mike Matusow and Nathan Gamble, who won the $1,500 PLO8 event just days ago.

Those who remain will come back to 1,000/2,000 blinds on Day 2, which gets going at 2 p.m. Tuesday. Come back to PokerNews then for more coverage of this new championship event.

Nível 10 : 800/1,600, 0 ante
Daniel Negreanu
Daniel Negreanu

Mike Sexton filled us in on the action leading up to Negreanu's shove on the turn. According to Sexton, it was a five-way limped pot and the flop came {9-Clubs}{7-Spades}{6-Hearts}. It checked to Negreanu in early position and he bet. Sexton called in late position and Gary Bolden called from under the gun.

The turn was the {A-Spades} and Bolden checked. Negreanu went all in for 11,600 and Sexton and Bolden both called. On the {8-Diamonds} river, Bolden bet the pot and Sexton called for less.

Negreanu: {9-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{A-Clubs}{4-Hearts}
Sexton: {10-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}
Bolden: {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}

Sexton had the nut straight for the best high and Bolden's low was best. Negreanu was eliminated and Sexton and Bolden chopped the pot.

"That's How You Win the Tournament"; Viacheslav Knocks Out Two

Nível 10 : 800/1,600, 0 ante
Viacheslav Zhukov
Viacheslav Zhukov

The player under the gun limped and Viacheslav Zhukov raised to 5,000 in the cutoff. Jon Turner raised the pot from the big blind and the initial limper moved all in for 30,800. Zhukov got a count and looked at both of his opponents' stacks. They were around the same amount.

Then he announced, "I'm not the favorite," and put forward a stack of pink chips to put Turner in. Turner called and was all in for 32,200 total. Zhukov had both his opponents at risk.

Zhukov: {A-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}
Turner: {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{3-Hearts}
Under the gun player: {A-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}

When they turned over their hands, tablemate Scott Bohlman said, "That's how you win the tournament," referring to Zhukov's two WSOP bracelets.

The board ran out {Q-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{5-Spades} {Q-Clubs} {2-Spades}. With no low available, Zhukov scooped the whole pot with two pair, queens and fives, eliminating Turner and the other all-in player in the process.

"That's how you win the tournament," Bohlman repeated as Zhukov stacked the chips.

Felipe Ramos Calls Correctly Against Scott Clements

Nível 9 : 600/1,200, 0 ante
Felipe Ramos
Felipe Ramos

The player under the gun opened to 3,000 and got calls from Scott Clements on the button and Felipe Ramos in the small blind. All three players checked the {9-Spades}{5-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} flop and the turn was the {7-Hearts}. Ramos bet out 5,500, the next player folded, and Clements called.

They were heads up to the {A-Hearts} river and Ramos checked. Clements put out a stack of 5,000-denomination chips to pot and Ramos asked the dealer what the bet was. The dealer said it was 21,200 and Ramos went into the tank. After more than two minutes, Ramos tossed in a single chip to indicate a call.

Clements tabled {A-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} just a pair of aces for a high and a seven-five low. Ramos won the high with two pair, aces and deuces, and he had a six-five low, good for the scoop.

Chen Leaves Seiken Disgusted, Busted

Nível 8 : 500/1,000, 0 ante
Tommy Chen, pictured in a different event.
Tommy Chen, pictured in a different event.

On a board of {7-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{7-Spades}, Tommy Chen had a bet in front of him and Nicholas Seiken had raised pot. Chen put him all in and Seiken got his 70,000 in with {3-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} for trips, a flush draw and the nut low draw. Chen had {a-Spades}{3-Hearts}{2-Spades}{j-Spades} for aces and the nut low draw. The river was an {a-Hearts}, giving Chen better trips.

"Wow, you can chop it up" Seiken said, stalking away from the table briefly. Except, there wasn't a low, and he'd been scooped and busted.

"I guess he gets it all," Seiken said when he realized the full extent of the beat he'd taken. "You play PLO8 well."

"I put him on a three-two low draw," Chen said after Seiken had walked away. "What am I gonna do? Fold?"

Mike Matusow

Heads up on a flop of {K-Clubs}{8-Spades}{4-Hearts}, Mike Terronez was in late position and Mike Matusow was on the button. Both players had 3,000 in front of them already and Terronez bet 8,000. Matusow called and the river was the {5-Spades}. Terronez bet the pot, and Matusow called all in for 17,300.

Terronez had {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} for aces and fives and the nut low. Matusow had {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} for missed clubs and the nut low, good for a quarter of the pot.

With around 10,000 in the pot and the board reading {J-Spades}{7-Spades}{7-Hearts}, John Monnette checked in early position, and Mike Gorodinsky bet 5,700 on the button. Monnette check-raised to 13,000, and Gorodinsky moved all in for around 29,000. Monnette called, and Gorodinsky was at risk.

Gorodinsky: {A-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{4-Spades}
Monnette: {A-Spades}{7-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{10-Spades}

Both players had trip sevens with an ace kicker, but the {10-Hearts} turn gave Monnette sevens full of tens. Gorodinsky also filled up on the {4-Clubs} river, but Monnette's boat was better, and the 2015 WSOP Player of the Year was eliminated.

Monnette is once again at the top of the counts.

Heaps Again for Henson After Busting Katchalov

Nível 7 : 400/800, 0 ante
Ray Henson
Ray Henson

Another tournament, another big stack for Ray Henson, who can seem to do no wrong at the moment in the Rio.

He just busted Eugene Katchalov when the two got stacks in on a {10-Clubs}{7-Spades}{6-Spades} flop. Henson had {a-Spades}{8-Spades}{5-Hearts}{3-Hearts} for a low draw and a nut flush draw against the {a-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{j-Spades}{9-Spades} of Eugene Katchalov, with the latter flopping the nuts and holding a couple of blockers. However, the turn was an {8-Diamonds} to lock up the low for Henson and the river {2-Spades} gave him the nuts both ways.

Marco Johnson raised to 2,200 in the cutoff, and Jared Bleznick made it 6,100 on the button. Johnson potted it, and Bleznick moved all in for around 48,000. Johnson called and had Bleznick covered by a small margin.

Johnson: {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{4-Hearts}
Bleznick: {A-Spades}{A-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{2-Hearts}

They had similar hands, but the board ran out {10-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{3-Spades} {5-Spades} {2-Spades}. The river gave Johnson the wheel and the nut low to scoop the pot and send Bleznick to the rail.
