Hands 140-142: Mutke's House is Undervalued

Jonathan_Zaun • Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Hand #140: Cada took it down with a raise to 130,000 from the cutoff.

Hand #141: Polychronopoulos raised to 140,000 holding the button, stealing the blinds and antes.

Hand #142: Polychronopoulos made it 120,000 to go from the cutoff, Mutke came along from the big blind, and the flop fell {4-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{j-Spades}. Mutke check-called a bet of 155,000 by Polychronopoulos, and the turn came {3-Clubs}. Mutke checked a second time, and Polychronopoulos continued with a bet of 275,000. The deliberate Mutke then pondered his options for a minute or so, riffling chips and gazing at the board, before ultimately making the call. Both players checked the river, and Mutke rolled over {5-Spades}{5-Clubs} for a rivered full house.

Hands 135-139: Do You Limp the Button? All the Cool Kids Are Doing It...

Jonathan_Zaun • Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Hand #135: Polychronopoulos received a walk in the big blind.

Hand #136: Cada raised to 140,000 under the gun, Mutke mucked his small blind, and Polychronopoulos three-bet to 260,000, forcing Cada to release.

Hand #137: Polychronopoulos limped in on the button, Carlton mucked his small blind, and Cada checked his option. The flop rolled out {5-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{5-Hearts}, and both players checked down, as they did on the {5-Clubs} turn. When the {K-Hearts} hit the board on the river, Cada checked for a third time, and Polychronopoulos bet 425,000 to take it down.

Hand #138: Carlton limped in on the button, Cada completed the small blind, and Mutke checked his option. They checked the {10-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{4-Spades} down, seeing the {6-Clubs} fall on the turn. Cada led out for 75,000, Mutke called, and Carlton mucked. When the river came {5-Diamonds}, Cada led out for 120,000, and Mutke looked perplexed, asking Cada something quietly while thinking things through. Scratching his forehead as he pondered, Mutke stared at his stack and appeared to count, before finally tossing in the crying call. Cada opened the {J-Spades}{2-Spades} and his top pair was good enough.

Hand #139 Joe Cada raised on the button and Athanasios Polychronopoulos called from the big blind. They both checked to the river of a {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{6-Spades}{Q-Clubs} board where he bet 175,000. Cada folded.

Hands 133-134

123md • Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Hand #133: Athanasios Polychronopoulos raised from the button and Everett Carlton three-bet all in from the small blind. Joe Cada folded his big blind and Polychronopoulos folded as well.

Hand #134: Joe Cada raised to 140,000 from the small blind and Manuel Mutke called from the big blind. Cada continued for 120,000 after the {K-Spades}{K-Hearts}{6-Spades} flop and Mutke called. Both checked the {3-Spades} turn and {7-Spades} river with Mutke showing {4-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}, good enough to take down the pot.

Hands 130-132: Mutke Makes it on the Turn

Jonathan_Zaun • Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Hand #130: Polychronopoulos raised to 140,000 from the cutoff, taking down the blinds and antes.

Hand #131: Cada raised to 130,000 on the button, and the uncontested pot was pushed to him.

Hand #132: Mutke opened for 120,000 holding the button, Polychronopoulos folded his small blind, and Carlon called to defend his big blind. Both players checked the flop of {9-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}, and the turn came {10-Clubs}, prompting both players to get their chips in the middle. Mutke's {K-Spades}{Q-Clubs} was good for the Broadway straight, which was a virtual lock against Carlton's {Q-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} busted bluff. The river failed to deliver a chop, and Mutke doubled to nearly 2 million, while Carlton dropped to less than 1.9 million.

Hands 124-130: Carlton Banks

Jonathan_Zaun • Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Hand #124: Polychronopoulos jammed from the small blind, forcing Carlton to an all-in decision, but the experienced WSOP Circuit grinder got out of the way.

Hand #125: Polychronopoulos limped in on the button, Carlton also called from the small blind, but both folded when Cada raised to 200,000 from the big blind.

Hand #126: Carlton raised his button, collecting Cada and Mutke's blinds.

Hand #127: Carlton open-shoved under the gun, and the action folded to Polychronopoulos, who paused for a moment before folding.

Hand #128: Mutke raised his button 120,000, and Carlton called out of the big blind. The flop rolled out {7-Clubs}{2-Spades}{10-Hearts}, and Carlton checked, prompting a bet of 100,000 by Mutke. Carton then reraised to 320,000, and that forced Mutke off the hand.

Hand #129: Polychronopoulos limped in on the button, Carlton completed his small blind, and Cada checked his option. The flop fell {a-Hearts}{10-Spades}{8-Spades}, Cada checked, Polychronopoulos bet 80,000, and Carlton called while Cada got out of the way. The turn came {8-Clubs}, and after unknown action, Carlton checked the river {9-Clubs}. Polychronopoulos then bet 500,000, and after thinking it through for over a minute, Carlton looked him up with {9-Spades}{4-Spades}, which was good against Polychronopoulos' {2-}{2-} bluff.

Hands 118-123: Cada Getting Involved

Jonathan_Zaun • Level 28: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Hand #118: Cada put his new chips to use, raising to 140,000 from the small blind, but he was met with resistance in the form of a reraise by Mutke, and Cada's cards were mucked.

Hand #119: Cada won the blinds and antes with a button raise to 130,000.

Hand #120: Cada raised from the cutoff, making it 130,000 to play, and Polychronopoulos flatted from the small blind. The two saw a flop of {a-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} and checked it down, bringing the {J-Hearts} on the turn. Polychronopoulos led out for 180,000, and that was enough to earn the win.

Hand #121: Carlton won it with an all-in shove for just over 1 million out of the small blind.

Hand #122: Unknown action occurred on this hand.

Hand #123: Cada opened for 120,000 on the button, and Polychronopoulos three-bet to 285,000, forcing Cada to muck his hand.
