Michaelsen Doubles

Hans Michaelsen got his last 71,500 chips in the pot preflop holding the {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds} but found he was way behind his opponent's {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}. The flop of {q-Spades}{j-Spades}{5-Spades} gave Michaelsen a little hope at redemption, and the {j-Hearts} on the turn boosted him into the lead. The river was a meaningless {8-Clubs} and Michaelsen doubled to around 155,000.

Slaubaugh Slaughtered

Cody Slaubaugh
Cody Slaubaugh

Cody Slaubaugh raised to 9,500 under the gun and Joseph Urgo who was next to act made it 25,000 to go. It was folded back around to Slaubaugh who moved all in for 96,000 and Urgo made the call.

Urgo: {A-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}
Slaubaugh: {J-Spades}{10-Diamonds}

The {A-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} flop was bad news for Slaubaugh and the {A-Clubs} on the turn had him drawing dead. The {5-Hearts} river was merely a formality as Slaubaugh was eliminated and Urgo chipped up

New Chip Leader


We kept tabs on Lee Satterwhite for a little while earlier but with tables breaking so often, we lost him for a while. In any case, we've found him again with around 90,000 more than our next biggest stack and sporting a black Rio hat. While we were counting his stack, his daughter was even helpful enough to let us know how much Satterwhite had. She must be a pretty good chip counter because we calculated the same amount she told us.

"Every Pilgrim Reaches the End of it's Journey... Some Sooner Than Others"

With the board already reading {q-Clubs}{10-Spades}{8-Clubs}{7-Hearts} and 35,000 in the pot, a player in early position checked and Dwyte Pilgrim shoved all in for 71,000. The early position player tanked for a bit before finally deciding to call.

"Nice call" Pilgrim said as he tabled his {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}. The other player held the {k-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} and his pair of tens stayed as the best hand after the {6-Clubs} came on the river.

Both players had similarly sized stacks but after the chips were counted down the other player had around 10,000 more and Pilgrim was eliminated from the tournament.

Bertelson Makes Huge Call for Tournament Life


We caught up with the action on a {9-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} board where it appeared as though Glen Bertelson bet 9,000 from the big blind and Mark Schmid raised for an amount that we didn’t catch on the button. Bertelson called as the players saw the {10-Spades} roll off on the river. Bertelson checked and Schmid quickly moved all in which amounted to the 102,000 that Bertelson had left. Bertelson made the call and Schmid instantly mucked his hand. Bertelson turned over {Q-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} for just top pair and the floor was called over to determine if Schmid had to reveal his hand. Since it was an all in, Schmid did indeed have to show and the dealer flipped over his {8-Spades}{3-Diamonds} for an eight-high bluff. The call catapulted Bertelson’s stack to the chip lead while Schmid, the former chip leader, took a huge hit.

A Pair Bests Carroll

With the board reading {9-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{4-Spades}{q-Hearts}, a player in middle position bet 8,500 and James Carroll raised to 18,500. The other player called and the {j-Diamonds} fell on the river. The middle position player check-called a bet of 22,000 from Carroll. The other player showed the {K-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} for a rivered pair of jacks and Carroll mucked his hand claiming he had ace-high.

Carroll's stack was down to 31,500 after the hand.

James Carroll us 31,500

Heads up, Literally


Mitch Schock limped in middle position and Adam Cader raised to 8,500 in the hijack. The small blind three-bet to 19,500 and when it got back to Schock, he re-raised to 50,000 straight. Cader quickly folded but the small blind went into the tank. Some other players got up from the table to walk around as the small blind continued to ponder. Eventually, every single player at the table who wasn’t in the pot was up from their seats with the only people left at the table being the dealer, the small blind and Schock. The small blind eventually folded after several minutes and the players returned to their seats to play the next hand. The small blind was left with around 75,000 after the hand.
