No Good For Nacho

MrCleverFox • Level 1: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

After losing a pot to Sumanth Reddy when Reddy turned a set, Jake Schwartz is right back around his starting stack after taking one off Nacho Barbero.

From under the gun Barbero opened to 13,000. In the next seat over Schwartz called. Everyone else folded and the two took to a flop of {Q-Spades}{8-Clubs}{9-Spades}. Barbero led out with a bet of 13,000 and Schwartz called.

On the {K-Spades} turn, Barbero led again with a bet of 21,000. Schwartz didn't waste any time calling.

The river was the {7-Diamonds} and Barbero slowed down and just checked. Schwartz fired a bet of 35,000 that Barbero called after some consideration.

Schwartz turned up {K-Clubs}{J-Clubs} and it was good enough to take down the pot after Barbero mucked.

Paging Mr. Kochelaevskiy

[user80015] • Level 1: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

We are now an orbit into play on table 452 and Vladimir Kochelaevskiy has still not taken his seat.

Although an orbit is only costing him 15,000 - roughly 1/30th of his stack - an appearance soon may help his chances of making a run at a final table spot.
