Ivey's Kicker Is Better

Chad_Holloway • Level 2: 600-1,200, 200 ante

On the final board of {K-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{K-Hearts}, Phil Ivey checked to [Removed:283]. [Removed:288] fired a bet of 20,000 and Ivey tanked for a bit before making the call. [Removed:288] tabled the {A-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} for ace-ten high. Ivey showed the {A-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} for ace-queen high and won the pot.

Bulychev Getting Bullied


On a board reading {Q-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{8-Spades}{A-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}, Juha Helppi checked and watched Ilya Bulychev bet 9,000. Helppi responded with a check-raise to 35,000, and after thinking for about 90 seconds, Bulychev made the call. Helppi proudly rolled over {K-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} for the nuts, and Bulychev sent his cards to the muck.

That hand dropped Bulychev to just 68,000, though we assume most of his stack went to Talal Shakerchi, who is sitting with nearly 450,000.

One for Sahamies


Action folded to Dan Smith on the button and he put in a raise, how much we're not sure. What we do know is that both Artem Litvinov and Ilari Sahamies called from the small and big blind respectively, bringing about a flop of {K-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{6-Clubs}.

Two checks put action on Smith, and he took the opportunity to bet 7,000. Litvinov made the call, and after thinking for a solid minute, Sahamies opted for a check-raised to 22,000. Smith called, Litvinov folded, and then both players checked the {J-Spades} turn. The action repeated itself on the {5-Hearts} river, Sahamies sheepishly revealed {A-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}, and it was good as Smith simply mucked.

Negreanu Eliminated By Timex


We didn’t catch all the action, but we do know that Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu managed to get all in for about 200,000 with the {5-Spades}{3-Spades} on a flop of {6-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} and was up against the {7-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} of Mike “Timex” McDonald.

“Uh oh,” Negreanu said, “I only did it because there’s rebuys.”

The {6-Clubs} turn was bad for Negreanu as it improved McDonald to trips, but it’d be the {2-Diamonds} on the river that would improve the latter to a flush even though it made Negreanu's straight.

“I just swapped with ElkY, too,” Negreanu said. “Poor guy. Oh well, I’m going to take a nap.”

Sure enough, Negreanu exited the tournament floor, though it sounded as though he might return later in the day and rebuy.
