Khalafian Flush'd

Patrick Khalafian eliminated in 25th place

Nicholas Heather opened to 31,000 from under the gun only to have Patrick Khalafian move all in for 155,000.

With the action on Gerald Domagalski on the button, he made the call as Heather folded.

Khalafian: {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}
Domagalski: {10-Spades}{10-Hearts}

The flop of {J-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} was a sweat for both players with Khalafian needing to fade an ace, ten or running cards for a flush or counter-feit to stay alive.

The {5-Hearts} on the turn was not what Khalafian was looking for as he now had an additional nine outs to fade, and when the dealer burned and turned the {4-Hearts} on the river to complete Domagalski's flush, Khalafian headed to the rail.

Walker Walks


Andrew Walker pushed his last 105,000 in from middle position and Gerald Domagalksi made the call from the small blind.

Walker: {K-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}
Domagalksi: {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}

The board ran out {J-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{7-Spades}{9-Clubs}{A-Clubs} to put Walker on the rail in 26th place for a $13,524 payday as Domagalksi climbs to 525,000 in chips.

Action Slowing Down


Action has slowed considerably now that players have a little deeper stacks. Flops have become a rare occurence where a preflop raise is usually enough to take down the pot.

Four-Bet Success For Baker


Kyung Han opened to 28,000 from late position only to have Daniel Carter three-bet to 75,000.

With the action on David Baker in the cutoff he took his allotted time before sliding his whole stack - albeit 2,000 that were capping his cards - into the middle to amount to a raise of 220,000.

The blinds and Han quickly passed before Carter sat there counting his own stack while occasionally shuffling chips and rearranging the pyramid formation he had it in.

Eventually two minutes went by and Carter folded his hand to see Baker rake in the pot and move to over 335,000 in chips.

"Wrong Read"


Daniel Carter raised to 27,000 in late position and was called by Vahan Sudzhyan in the big blind. When the flop came {2-Hearts}{2-Spades}{3-Clubs}, Sudzhyan checked and Carter bet 25,000.

Sudzhyan reraised 55,000 more and Carter, who had the bigger stack, went all in. Sudzhyan, who had invested half his chips, quickly called and turned over {A-Spades}{10-Clubs}. Carter showed {7-Clubs}{7-Hearts}.

"Wrong read," Sudzhyan chastized himself. The turn was the {5-Diamonds} and the river the {5-Hearts}. Sudzhyan was eliminated while Carter's stack increased to 750,000.
