Gomez the Lion Doubles

Diego Gomez
Diego Gomez

Diego Gomez is dressed in a lion "onsie" today and he just bounded around on stage in it after a roller-coaster board saw him double up.

The Spaniard opened to 140,000 and then four-bet all in for 1,285,00 after Ramzi Jelassi three-bet to 330,000 off the button. Call.

Jelassi: {a-Spades}{q-Spades}
Gomez: {10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}

The board ran {8-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{2-Clubs}.

Ramzi leapt into the lead but was powerless to the running clubs that cost him.

Gomez's celebrations were a little excessive but at least he's having fun. When he returned to the table after celebrating with his friends he sung, "I'm sexy and I know it."

New Level, Same Old Ramzi

[user76079] • Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

The first hand back from the break saw Mark Herm open to 135,000 from mid position. It was a dangerous ploy though as Ramzi Jelassi was in the big blind.

He picked up just where he left off in the last level and three-bet to 325,000. Herm tank-folded.

Gomez's River Bluff Gets Through

YorkshirePud • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

First to act was Mark Herm on the button and the American raised to 100,000. Aleh Plauski folded his small blind but the lion pyjamas wearing Diego Gomez in the big blind called.

Both players checked the {7-Hearts}{7-Spades}{a-Diamonds} and the {10-Hearts} turn and then Gomez checked the {10-Hearts} river. Herm had seen enough passivity and he took a stab at the pot with a 115,000 bet, only to see Gomez check-raise to 325,000. Herm made a frustrated fold and was shown the {Q-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} of his Spanish opponent.

Who said the old limp under the gun with aces was dead? Mark Herm just pulled off the retro move and it helped him to double up.

After Herm limped Ben Warrington shoved from the button and was snapped off.

Herm: {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}
Warrington: {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}

The board ran {2-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}.

Warrington picked up a Broadway draw but it never came in.

All Jelassi Right Now


Ramzi Jelassi seems to be in the zone today and is now up to a huge 8.6 million chips.

He called from the big blind after an open to 105,000 from Diego Gomez and a button call from David Boyaciyan. All three checked the {8-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} flop before Jelassi led out for 175,000 on the {4-Clubs} turn. Gomez folded quickly but Boyaciyan raised to 350,000.

Jelassi had an answer and it was to three-bet to 800,000. It did the job. as his Dutch opponent mucked.
