Stud 8

George: {x-}{x-} / {5-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{Q-Spades} / {x-}
Guss: {x-}{x-} / {9-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} / {x-}
Morrison: {x-}{x-} / {6-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{6-Clubs} / {x-}

Picking up with the action on fifth street, Chris George led out with a pair of fives. Brandon Guss cut out a raise and Dennis Morrison made it three bets to go. George and Guss called to see sixth.

On sixth street, Morrison made sixes, allowing him to lead out first. Both George and Guss called and the trio received seventh street. Morrison moved all in in the dark for his last 13,000 and both of his opponents called. Guss rolled over {K-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} for trip nines which was good enough to take the high.

George showed {8-Spades}{3-Hearts}{2-Spades} for an eighty-five which earned him the low. Morrison showed {K-Spades}{7-Spades}{2-Hearts} for sixes and an eighty-seven for the second-best hand in both the high and the low. He was eliminated from play in 22nd place.

Steury Hits Miracle To Stay Alive

[user272102] • Level 19


The chips all went in on fifth street and Aaron Steury was not a happy man when Adam Friedman's down cards were turned over. Friedman had {7-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} for a seven high straight. Steury had {J-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{6-Clubs} and was in dire straights. He stood up expecting to be eliminated. His sixth street card was the {Q-Spades} and Friedman said to him "you picked up a straight draw." It was a prophetic statement as Steury would squeeze his card and say "made it" as he turned over the{8-Diamonds}. Friedman sat there in shock and tossed the chips into the middle that Steury would be collecting.

Despite doubling immediately after being crippled by Joe Villella, Devin Hanneman has since been eliminated from play.

Boyd: {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds} / {2-Clubs}{3-Spades}{A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs} / {10-Hearts}
Hanneman: {6-Clubs}{10-Spades} / {10-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{6-Spades} / {x-}

Dutch Boyd was the bring in and Hanneman completed. Adam Friedman called from the next seat over and action folded back around to Boyd. He thought for a moment before raising the action, prompting Hanneman to go all in for his last 16,500 total. Friedman folded and the hands were turned up. Boyd led with his pair of aces and Hanneman looked to catch up with his pair of tens.

Despite making tens up, Hanneman failed to improve against Boyd's trip aces on fifth, ensuring his elimination in 23rd place. He collected $6,178 in prize money while Boyd boosted his stack to 305,000.

Villella Cripples Hanneman

[user196676] • Level 19


Hanneman: {x-}{x-} / {7-}{K-}{A-}{4-} / {x-}
Villella: {x-}{x-} / {6-}{3-}{9-}{k-} / {x-}

We picked up with the action on sixth street to see Devin Hanneman lead out with a bet and Joe Villella call. On seventh, Hanneman fired one last bet. Villella stood up from the table and announced a raise. Villella called, leaving himself with just about 5,000 behind. Villella rolled over {5-}{4-}{2-} for a sixty-five and the winning hand. Hanneman mucked his cards and watched as his opponent was pushed the pot.

Jang Won Lee Eliminated in 24th Place ($6,178)

Omaha 8

Jang Won Lee's demise all began in what David "ODB" Baker would call the dumbest pot in the history of H.O.R.S.E.

David BakerPretty sure I just lost the dumbest pot in the history of horse final 3 tables. Pot was massive I still have 90k

It started with Michele Limongi raising first to act. Baker would make it three bets and Jang Won Lee would make it four bets. Limongi and Baker would both call and we would see a flop of {K-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{4-Spades}. Lee would bet and get called by both Limongi and Baker. The turn was the {10-Spades} and this time Lee would check. Limongi checked as well and called after Baker bet with Lee folding and leaving himself with just 3,000 behind. The river was the {3-Spades} and both players checked. Limongi turned over {7-Spades}{7-Clubs}{6-Spades}{4-Hearts} for a rivered spade flush. Baker shook his head and muttered under his breath "he's been doing that all day."

The very next hand Joe Cassidy would raise, Lee would call off his last 3,000 and Limongi would call as well. Lee smiled at the action and said "look at that... yum, yum baby." Before the dealer put out the flop, Limongi said in a thick accent "I check dark." The flop came {Q-Spades}{10-Spades}{2-Spades} and Cassidy said "I guess I bet light." Limongi smiled and said "I call in the shade" as he made the call. The turn was the {4-Clubs} and Cassidy checked and said "I don't like it when your in the shade, it's creepy." Limongi said "I check also" and we were off to the river. Both players checked the {7-Clubs} turned over by the dealer and Lee would survive with bottom two pair with {4-}{2-}{X-}{X-} for the high end while Limongi would take the remainder of the pot with {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}.

The next hand saw five players seeing the flop including Lee and Limongi. Shannon Petluck would make bets on the flop and turn on the {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{J-Spades}{6-Diamonds} board and find one caller in Limongi. The river was the {10-Spades} and Limongi said "I bet" and after a few moments told Lee "you can go home." That was enough to get Petluck to fold and Limongi turned over {K-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{5-Spades} for the nut spade flush and with that Lee was eliminated in 24th place.

Gallo Doubles Through Lee

[user196676] • Level 19

Omaha 8

Mark Gallo raised from middle position and action folded around to Jang Won Lee in the big blind. Lee called and the two saw a flop of {4-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{A-Clubs}. Lee checked and Gallo fired out a continuation bet. Lee called and the {2-Diamonds} hit the felt on the turn. Lee checked again and Gallo moved all in for his last 2,500. Lee called and the hands were tabled.

Gallo: {A-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}
Lee: {K-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{2-Hearts}

The river brought the {A-Spades}, giving Gallo trip aces and a low for the scoop. He doubled to about 47,000 while Lee was left with just about 10,000 in chips.
