Binger Brothers


The Binger brothers, Michael and Nick, are now seated at the same table. Michael is doing a bit better than Nick with nearly five times as many chips at 156,000 to 33,000. It'll be interesting to see if these two tangle with each other or not.

Sands Makes Correct Call


David "Doc" Sands and Brian Rast were heads up with the board reading {2-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{9-Clubs}. Sands checked, and Rast bet 3,500. Sands tank-called.

The turn was the {7-Hearts}, and Sands checked again. Rast fired 6,700, and Sands tank-called.

The river was another three - the {3-Spades} - and Sands checked a third time. Rast reached for orange T5,000 chips, and tossed four of them forward, making the bet 20,000. Sands, who only had 23,600 in front of him, tanked for over a minute before making the call.

"Aces," Rast announced.

Sands didn't say anything. Rast finally showed {a-Clubs}{a-Spades}, and Sands responded by tabling {q-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{x-}. Rast mucked his other two cards, and Sands dragged in the pot.

"Four Seats Open!"


Prior to seeing the {4-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{3-Hearts} flop, John Juanda and one other player were all in while three other players all made the call and were still in action. Of those three, Brian Hastings and Joe Kushner were included.

Kushner was first to act on the flop and put out 45,000. Hastings was next up and raised all in. The third active player in the hand also called all in and here's what was revealed.

Kusher: {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{4-Spades}
Hastings: {K-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{10-Spades}{5-Spades}
Opponent: {K-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}
Opponent: {9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{5-Hearts}
Juanda: {10-Spades}{8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{5-Clubs}

The turn was the {3-Diamonds} and the river the {Q-Clubs}. On the turn, Kushner made threes full of aces and that held up to take down the entire pot. In the process, Kushner busted four players, including Hastings and Juanda, en route to 325,000 in chips.

"Four seats open!" yelled Mohsin Charania from the table. "If this was a shootout table, you'd be doing pretty well," he added.

Farha Doubles Through Froehlich


Three players limped in before Eric Froehlich raised to 4,800. Three players called, including Sammy Farha, and the flop came down {3-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{9-Clubs}. The action checked to Froehlich, who bet 9,300, and Farha moved all in for a total of 39,800. The action folded back to Froehlich, who went into the tank.

"It'd be easier if another card was a heart, and not just the ace," Froehlich told Farha, who smiled.

After tanking for a little longer, Froehlich called.


The {3-Diamonds} on the turn paired the board, giving Farha a full house, but if a queen spiked on the river, then Froehlich would win the pot. A meaningless {7-Spades} completed the board however, and Farha raked in the massive pot.
