Vitch Landsliding His Table

Jan_Kores • Level 20: 8,000-16,000, 0 ante

2-7 Triple Draw

Brian Hastings raised, Chris Vitch three-bet out of position and Hastings fired a four-bet. Vitch called and they went to the first draw where both rivals changed two.

That street was checked and Vitch changed one again. Hastings patted and bet in position. Vitch wasn't willing to give up and called.

They both patted the last draw and Hastings turned up nine-seven.

"I have an eight," Vitch said, briefly showing what looked like an eighty-seven.

Vitch seized another pot, tackling Hastings to a short stack while rocketing towards 500,000 himself.

McDermott Eliminated in Family Pot

mnuwwarah • Level 19: 6,000-12,000, 0 ante


All five players at Table 431 were in there on the second draw, and Timothy McDermott patted while Brian Hastings, Frank Kassela, Nam Le and Scott Seiver all drew one behind him. McDermott bet and it called around until Seiver popped it up. McDermott was all in for 14,000 and everyone else called.

McDermott broke and the others drew one until it got to Seiver, who bluffed throwing a card away and then pounded the table, getting a round of laughs.

"That would have been awesome," Kassela said.

"I thought it was in play," Hastings said.

"It was definitely in play," Seiver said.

Everyone checked the end and Kassela announced a ten. Seiver had it beat with {9-Clubs}{5-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} and took the monster pot down to force a redraw.
