Zinno Starts Hand Slowly, Picks Up Pace and Pot on Fifth Street

• Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

With both players dealt black aces first up, Zinno (with the {a-Clubs}) brought in the bet for 7,000. Elezra made the call with the {a-Spades}. Both players checked fourth street.

Zinno: {x-}{x-}/{a-Clubs}{4-Spades}{7-Spades}
Elezra: {x-}{x-}/{a-Spades}{10-Hearts}{9-Clubs}

Action on Elezra, he bet, only to find Zinno raising. That extra 50,000 was enough to win Zinno the pot.

Elezra Three-Bets and Barrels Out Zinno

mnuwwarah • Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Anthony Zinno defended the bring-in with the {q-Hearts}, while Eli Elezra had completed with the {a-Hearts}. A raising war ensued on fourth with Zinno raising and Elezra three-betting it.

Zinno: {x-}{x-}/{q-Hearts}{3-Spades}
Elezra: {x-}{x-}/{a-Hearts}{q-Spades}

Zinno called and then called one more on fifth when he got the {4-Spades} against the {9-Hearts} of Elezra. Zinno was then dealt the {10-Hearts} and Elezra the {3-Diamonds}, and a bet on sixth convinced Zinno to let it go.

Elezra Takes Rare Moment in the Tank

• Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Eli Elezra is very swift acting in Stud, so it was notable that he took some time over his decision in a pot that ultimately went to Anthony Zinno. Elezra had completed with the {a-Spades}, Zinno called with the {4-Diamonds}. Elezra picked up the {8-Spades} on fourth, Zinno the {10-Hearts}. Elezra fired again and was called.

Zinno: {x-}{x-}/{4-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}
Elezra: {x-}{x-}/{a-Spades}{8-Spades}{8-Clubs}

Elezra bet out again; this time Zinno throw in a raise to 100,000. Now Elezra took a rare dip into the tank and when he emerged it was to fold.

A back-and-forth hand just went down with Eli Elezra raising when Anthony Zinno completed with the {8-Clubs} against the {7-Diamonds}. Zinno called but picked up a pair of eights right away and fired a double bet. Elezra called then paired aces and bet fifth. Zinno then picked up two pair and bet sixth.

Zinno: {x-}{x-}/{8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}
Elezra: {x-}{x-}/{7-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{3-Clubs}

Elezra called and they took in seventh. Zinno fired again and Elezra was in there with a quick call. Zinno showed an airball in the hole, playing his board, and Elezra had {9-Clubs}{9-Spades}{j-Diamonds} for aces up.

Elezra Wins with a Raise on Fifth Street

• Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Zinno: {x-}{x-}/{3-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{6-Diamonds}
Elezra: {x-}{x-}/{4-Hearts}{8-Spades}{2-Diamonds}

Anthony Zinno, who'd bet fourth and fifth streets, faced a raise to 100,000 from Eli Elezra. Despite the low, rainbow nature of Elezra's shown hand, Zinno elected to fold and bring the final two players' stacks a little closer back to even.

Anthony Zinno completed with the {a-Diamonds} but Eli Elezra took over the lead when he started picking up a threatening board on fourth with clubs and a possible straight rolling off, along with a pair of sixes.

Zinno: {x-}{x-}/{a-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{j-Clubs}/{x-}
Elezra: {x-}{x-}/{4-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{6-Hearts}/{x-}

Elezra bet the end and Zinno called fairly quickly. Elezra didn't appear to believe his hand was good, flashing the {4-Hearts} for two pair, and Zinno indeed had aces up: {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{7-Spades}.

Zinno Rivers a Flush

• Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Anthony Zinno is regaining some of the ground lost in the last level to Eli Elezra. He defended with the {8-Diamonds} just now when Elezra, showing the {k-Spades}, made it 25,000 to go, and then bet when his eight paired. Elezra had picked up the {a-Spades}, and made the call, leading out himself when he paired higher with the {a-Clubs} on fifth street. Zinno called.

Zinno: {x-}{x-}/{8-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}
Elezra: {x-}{x-}/{k-Spades}{a-Spades}{a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}

Elezra bet again. This time, Zinno reached for more: he made it 100,000 and Elezra called. With the final card dealt, Elezra bet out 50,000. As soon as he received a call, he gathered up all of his cards to muck, pausing to hold them fanned briefly as if attempting to find some combination that beat Zinno's {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}/{8-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} ace-high flush.
