Cody Bets Every Street

[user198217] • Level 5: 200-400, 50 ante

Jake Cody’s opponent was showing two- sixes on fourth street, but opted to check-call a bet. Fifth street came, as he checked again, but beat Cody into the pot with his call.

“There’s no point wasting his time,” said Cody’s opponent, happy to check-call it down.

The same happened on sixth and seventh, before Cody tabled his down cards, having two-pair, which was good for the entire pot.

Jake Cody: {A-Clubs}{7-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{3-Spades} / {A-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{6-Spades}
Opponent: {x-}{x-} / {6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{8-Hearts} / {x-}

Once seventh was dealt, Hellmuth opened {J-Hearts}{A-Hearts} / {Q-Diamonds} for two pair jacks and nines, and beat the {J-Diamonds}{K-Clubs} / {8-Diamonds} (pair of kings) to send Seat 6 to the showers.

Kassela KO'd

Frank Kassela
Frank Kassela

Chris Tryba completed and was met with one call before Frank Kassela two-bet. Tryba three-bet and both players called before he bet out on fourth. Kassela raised, Tryba three-bet and Kassela was all in for 900 as the unknown player folded as both player's boards ran out as follows leading into seventh.

Tryba: {A-Hearts}{2-Spades} / {A-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{7-Clubs}
Opponent: {X-}{X-} / {4-Spades}{10-Hearts} (folded on fourth)
Kassela: {J-Hearts}{6-Hearts} / {K-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}

With Kassela spiking his flush and taking one of Tryba's full house outs away, Tryba would flip and slam over his {3-Clubs} on seventh to make a bigger flush then Kassela. With Kassela drawing to the case {A-Hearts}, he would unfortunately only find the {Q-Spades} to end his tournament early as Tryba moved to 17,500 in chips.
