Schneider Bests Ortynskiy

mnuwwarah • Level 28


Tom Schneider completed the bet with a {2-Clubs}, and Viatcheslav Ortynskiy raised with {a-Diamonds}. Schneider made the call. He caught good on fourth, while Ortynskiy caught bad, and he took the betting lead. Ortynskiy called him down until they both checked sixth.

Ortynskiy: {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{8-Spades}
Schneider: {2-Spades}{5-Spades}{3-Spades}{q-Clubs}

Schneider sprung to life again on seventh street with a bet, and Ortynskiy made the call. Schneider showed {8-}{4-}{2-} for an eight-five, and Ortynskiy couldn't beat it.

Three-Way Action, but Little Chip Movement

• Level 28

Omaha Eight or Better

The players took the flop three-handed, a rarity so far for this contest, as Tom Schneider raised from the button, Viatcheslav Ortynskiy called from the small blind, and Owais Ahmed called from the big blind. All three players checked the {4-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}, and then Ortynskiy led out when the {6-Spades} fell on the turn. Ahmed called and Schneider folded, then the {j-Diamonds} completed the board. Ortynskiy checked, and then called Ahmed's bet. It was time for a showdown:

Ahmed: {a-}{3-}{q-}{10-}
Ortynskiy: {2-}{3-}{6-}{j-}

Ahmed won the low with his sixty-five. Ortynskiy won the high with his six-high straight, and the players split the pot.

Top Set Good for Ahmed

mnuwwarah • Level 28


Owais Ahmed raised on the button, and Viatcheslav Ortynskiy made the call from the big blind.

Ortynskiy check-raised the {10-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} flop, and Ahmed called. The turn came {6-Hearts}, and Ortynskiy fired a bet. Ahmed did the raising this time, however, and Ortynskiy called. The river brought a {4-Clubs}, and Ortynskiy check-called. Ahmed tabled {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} for top set.

"Nice hand," Ortynskiy said, patting the table.

Ortynskiy Catches Schneider

• Level 28


Tom Schneider limped from the small blind, and Viatcheslav Ortynskiy checked from the big blind. The players checked around on both the flop and turn as the board rolled out {q-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{3-Spades}, then Schneider pushed out a bet on the river. Ortynskiy quickly called, and Schneider turned over {9-}{7-}. Ortynskiy held {a-}{2-}, and his ace-high was enough to win the small pot.

Rep Porter - 4th Place.
Rep Porter - 4th Place.


Viatcheslav Ortynskiy completed the bet from first position, and Rep Porter raised him with all but his last few thousand.

"It's a gamble," Ortynskiy said, raising to put Porter all in.

Ortynskiy: {6-Spades}{7-Spades}{8-Diamonds}
Porter: {10-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}

Both players had the making of straights early on, and both caught good on fourth: Ortynskiy with a {4-Diamonds} and Porter with {a-Spades}. Neither got anything on fifth and sixth, and we headed to seventh with two gutshot straight draws and not much else. Porter tabled a {10-} for a pair of tens, but Ortynskiy spiked his straight with a {5-Diamonds} to send Porter to the rail.

Full Boat Good for Ortynskiy

• Level 28


Viatcheslav Ortynskiy completed on third street with a {7-Spades} showing, and Owais Ahmed ({6-Clubs}) was the only caller. Ahmed led out on fourth street after being dealt the {9-Clubs}, and Ortynskiy called with his {2-Spades}. Ortynskiy received the {7-Hearts} on fifth street and bet out, then called after Ahmed raised with his {3-Clubs}. On sixth street, Ortynskiy received the {10-Clubs} and Ahmed the {3-Diamonds}. Both players checked, and Ortynskiy bet out on the river. Ahmed went into the tank, thinking for longer than we've seen during most of this final table. After over three minutes, he elected to call. Ortynskiy turned over {7-}{2-}{a-} for a full house, and Ahmed mucked his cards.
