Leah Doesn't See Seventh

[user198217] • Level 4: 150-300, 25 ante

We arrived at the table with the action on fourth, as Mike Leah bet and was called by both his opponents.

On fifth, all three checked, before aggression took over on sixth. Player 2 bet, player 1 raised and Leah folded his hand. We stuck around to see player 2 make the call, before calling the bet on seventh.

Player 1: {x-}{x-} / {K-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{4-Spades} / {x-}
Leah: {x-}{x-} / {7-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} (folded on sixth)
Player 2: {3-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{3-Hearts}{3-Clubs} / {J-Hearts}{J-Spades}{7-Spades}

The aggressor tabled his down cards for a full house, which was good enough to take it down.

Savage Hanging On

[user198217] • Level 3: 100-200, 25 ante

Player 1 brought in before Matt Savage completed. Player 2 raised and both called to see fourth street.

Savage checked, as he was then met with a bet and raise from his opponents. He called, the original better called and we saw fifth.

Savage checked once more, as did player 2, before player 1 bet. Savage called before there was another raise, which was called twice.

Player 2 showed a pair and bet, and was called. He followed suit on seventh, and found two callers.

Player 1: {x-}{x-} / {2-Spades}{5-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{5-Spades} / {x-}
Savage: {7-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{6-Spades}{3-Spades} / {7-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{K-Spades}
Player 2: {6-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{6-Clubs} / {A-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}

With Savage down to just 600 in chips, he was happy to at least chop half the pot, showing two pair for the high, and moving back up to around 2700 in chips.

Queens Up for Tryba

[user80015] • Level 3: 100-200, 25 ante

Catching the action on sixth we found one player betting 200 before Chris Tryba raised to 400. A third player flatted before the original bettor bumped it up to 600 as both Tryba and the third player smooth-called. On seventh there would be just one bet and two calls as each player's boards read as follows.

Tryba: {X-}{X-} / {J-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} / {X-}
Opponent: {X-}{X-} / {5-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{J-Hearts} / {X-}
Opponent: {X-}{X-} / {2-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{3-Spades}{7-Hearts} / {X-}

Tryba tabled his {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} for queens up as the aggressive betting player tabled his {A-Spades}{8-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} for a 7-6 low.
