Cameron Loses To Quads... Again


Mike Cameron has just lost to quads... again. This time on the {6-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{K-Clubs} board, Cameron moved all in against Will "The Thrill" Failla, but was met with a snap-call.

Failla held the {8-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{4-Spades} for quad fives and Cameron was in disbelief, again, that he had run into quads. Cameron only showed two cards, the {10-Spades}{10-Clubs} for a full house on the turn.

Before the last break, Cameron lost to Mohsin Charania in a quads-over-quads battle. Still, Cameron has chips, but things just don't seem to be going his way.

The players are on their final 20-minute break of the day.

"Bad Luck" Busts Staszko


Tristan Clemencon opened to 800 from early position, and three players called, including Bryn Kenney on the button, and Martin Staszko from the small blind. The flop came down {k-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}, and the action checked to Kenney, who tossed 2,000 forw. Staszko potted, making it 9,600, and Clemencon re-potted. The action folded back to Staszko, who called all in.


The turn and river came {q-Clubs}, {3-Diamonds} respectively, and Clemencon won the pot.

"Bad luck," Staszko muttered, then left.

8888 > 4444


When we reached Table 5, Mohsin Charania and Mike Cameron were heads up with the board reading {j-Spades}{4-Hearts}{8-Spades}{4-Diamonds}. Charania check-called a bet of 7,600, and the {8-Diamonds} completed the board. Charania checked, and Cameron fired 16,500.

"Pot," Charania announced after thirty seconds or so.

Cameron quickly re-potted, and Charania got the rest of his chips in the middle. Charania tabled {a-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{7-Clubs} for quad eights, and to the astonishment if everyone, Cameron tabled {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{4-Spades} for quad fours.

"Sorry man," Charania told him.

Charania doubled to around 140,000 chips, while Cameron was cut down to about 70,000.

Kirk is Here to Win


Over on Table 4 in the Gold Section of the Brasilia Room, Matthew Kirk and Nikolai "Googles" Yakovenko are butting heads. When we reached the table moments ago, Yakovenko was asking a floorperson if Kirk could be penalized for calling the clock too frequently on Yakovenko. Kirk defended himself, saying that Yakovenko was taking a long time on every street, and the floorperson cooled things down for the time being.

A hand later, Yakovenko mucked, and left the table to further explain what was happening to the floorperson. While he was gone, Kirk admitted that he was needling Yakovenko a little too much, and that he was a bit rude during a hand Yakovenko was playing. He was still upset however, and upon Yakovenko's return to the table, the two squabbled a little more. Kirk put an end to the conversation:

"I'm going to three-bet you every time you open. Either I'm going to be out, or you're going to be out."

Yakovenko didn't respond verbally, rather he took to Twitter:

The very next hand, Kirk opened to 1,500, and David "Doc" Sands three-bet to 4,500. Brian Rast four-bet to 14,900 from the small blind, and Kirk went into the tank. He examined Sand's stack, which was only 24,000 or so, then looked down at his own chips.

"Well, I came here to win," Kirk announced, grinning.

He called, and so did Sands. The flop came {4-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}, and Rast led out. Kirk and Sands quickly folded, and Rast raked in the pot.
