The Polychronopoulos Defense

Nível 9 : 400-800, 100 ante

Eric Wasserson opened with a raise to 1,800 from middle position and he was called by Athanasios Polychronopoulos who defended from the big blind.

On the {J-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{8-Spades} flop both players checked to see the {A-Spades} on the turn. Polychronopoulos checked again, but this time Wasserson bet 2,000. Polychronopoulos called.

On the {4-Spades} river both players checked it down. Polychronopoulos showed {9-Spades}{5-Hearts} for a flush and Wasserson held on to his cards a bit before mucking. That allowed Polychronopoulos to take down the small pot.

Both players are sporting healthy stacks with Wasserson holding one of the largest in the room.

World Series of "I Busted the Main Event"

Nível 9 : 400-800, 100 ante
Joseph Cheong
Joseph Cheong

"We're like seven off the money guys," JC Tran said. "Tighten up."

Tran was referring to the Main Event of course, not this tournament.

"Shut up man," Joseph Cheong said. "I don't wanna hear about that."

Cheong, Tran, and Danny Wong have been having some alcoholic beverages while playing in an effort to loosen up from busting the main event.

Cheong then opened from under the gun + 1 with a raise to 1,800.

"Let the record show that I folded this hand to Joseph Cheong's under the gun plus one raise," Wong said, flashing his {7-Spades}{3-Diamonds} behind him.

Action folded around to JC Tran who called from the small blind.

"Wow, it's the best player in the world," Wong said point to Tran. "Against the second best player in the world," Wong continued pointing to Cheong.

On the {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} flop, Tran checked to Cheong who bet 1,500. Tran called.

"Oh my god, who has a king?" Wong said to no one in particular. "Who has a nine? Who has a king?"

The turn was the {2-Clubs} and Tran checked again. Cheong fired 4,000 and this time Tran folded. Despite all the fun the table seems to be having, Cheong and Tran have both still amassed big stacks here on day 1c. Wong on the other hand sits just a bit over starting stack.

Dunst Knocks One Out

Nível 9 : 400-800, 100 ante

Tony Dunst made it 1,700 to go preflop, then called an all in shove of about 11,000 from an opponent.

Dunst: {7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}
Opponent: {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}

They were off to the races, though the race didn't last long, as the flop of {9-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{5-Spades}, giving Dunst a set. The only way Dunst wasn't going to take the full pot was if the board ran out a straight for a chop, but the {5-Diamonds} on the turn gave Dunst a full house, and the pot.

Duong Can't Crack Kings

Nível 9 : 400-800, 100 ante

We arrive to the table to see Jack Duong all in under the gun for what appeared to be roughly 7,000. A player in the cutoff called and Angelo Scicchitano re-raised to what appeared to be 36,000 from the big blind. After a couple of minutes the cutoff player folded.

Jack Duong: {a-Hearts}{5-Hearts}
Angelo Scicchitano: {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs}

The board ran out {k-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{9-Spades}{3-Hearts}{10-Spades} and after Duong turned a flush draw he couldn't catch up on the river and Sciccitano added to his stack.

Catching Up With PokerNews' Players to Watch

Nível 9 : 400-800, 100 ante
Josh Reichard is one of PokerNews' Five American Circuit Players to Watch
Josh Reichard is one of PokerNews' Five American Circuit Players to Watch

Two of PokerNews' American circuit players to watch are seated just a few feet away from each other on adjacent tables.

Josh Reichard is seated on Miranda 631. We caught him in a recent pot with an opponent on a flop of {10-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}. Reichard was first to act and he checked over to his one opponent. She bet 3,200 and Reichard called.

On the {A-Spades} turn Reichard checked again and his opponent bet 5,000. Reichard released his hand.

"Whew," his opponent said. "I finally got there. Thanks for the chips."

"No problem," Reichard responded.

On the next table over, Johanssy Joseph raised from the button and took down the blinds, increasing his stack to just under 25,000. We'll be keeping a closer eye on these two players as the tournament goes one.
