Make a Wish

[user38873] • Nivo 19: 6,000-12,000, 0 ante

Daniel Laidlaw and Billy Argyros chopped with pocket aces each, then Joshua Budin somehow folded against the bet of Nikolaos Solomos.

Xen Xenofontos dropped down in the counts further and was all in for his last 24,000 on the flop {Q-Spades}{9-Spades}{8-Hearts} out of the blinds. Laidlaw called and had his opponent dominated, holding {A-Spades}{A-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{6-Spades}. Xenofontos flipped over {9-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{2-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and stayed in the tournament thanks to the {Q-Clubs} turn and {2-Hearts} river.

One hand later, Xenofontos bet the pot for 66,000 on the flop {A-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{4-Hearts} and Solomos folded the {A-Spades}{4-Spades}.

Budin Won't Fold Yet

[user38873] • Nivo 19: 6,000-12,000, 0 ante

On the three-way flop of {5-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{2-Spades}, Joshua Budin led for 23,000 out of the small blind and Daniel Laidlaw in the big blind as well as Nikolaos Solomos from under the gun called. The {9-Diamonds} on the turn saw Budin check-call a bet of 55,000 by Laidlaw while Solomos let go. Both players checked the {3-Clubs} river and Laidlaw gave up the pot, checked behind and announced eights before showing {8-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}.

Budin held the {Q-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{2-Hearts} for trips deuces and scooped yet another pot to increase his domination.

Xenofontos Pays Off Budin

[user38873] • Nivo 19: 6,000-12,000, 0 ante

Joshua Budin has increased his stack to half of the chips in play with five participants remaining. Xen Xenofontos defended his big blind until the river of a board {8-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{3-Spades}{J-Clubs}{4-Spades} and then faced the bet of 155,000 by his opponent. The pot until then was already close to 200,000 chips and Xenofontos then called only to see Budin flip over {A-Spades}{A-Hearts}{9-Spades}{4-Hearts} for the nut flush.

"Such a mistake," Xenofontos said to himself and his opponent, forfeiting a big portion of his stack with a straight.

Jarryd Godena

Jarryd Godena dominated the early stages of the day and ran pretty bad on the bubble. Just now, he got involved in a pot and repot hand from the small blind and Joshua Budin called from the button to create a massive pot of 180,000 chips before the flop.

On the {7-Hearts}{4-Spades}{2-Clubs} flop, Godena bet the pot with another 4,000 behind and Budin tanked before pushing his opponent all in.

Godena: {A-Spades}{K-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{6-Spades} for ace-high
Budin: {10-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{8-Spades}{7-Clubs} for a pair of sevens

The {3-Diamonds} turn and {3-Hearts} river both blanked to award one of the biggest pots of the tournament so far with just a pair of sevens. Godena headed to the rail in 6th place for a payday of AU$18,280.

Argyros Catching Up

[user38873] • Nivo 18: 5,000-10,000, 0 ante

On the bubble, Billy Argyros was left very short but has since increased the stack. Albeit still below the average, the Aussie icon with the plush crocodile is no longer in push or fold mode.

In a three-way limped pot, Argyros bet the {7-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} flop out of the big blind for 15,000 and Xen Xenofontos check-called out of the small blind. Both checked the {8-Hearts} turn and Argyros then bet the {4-Diamonds} river for 20,000. Xenofontos called with five-six for a straight and {10-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} for a flush, Argyros had the {J-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} for a higher flush.

Ilias Sagias

Ilias Sagias raised from early position to 35,000 and had very little chips behind. Xen Xenofontos called and they headed to the flop {K-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{3-Spades}. Sagias got the rest of it in and was drawing very thin.

Sagias: {Q-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{4-Clubs}
Xenofontos: {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{J-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}

The {2-Hearts} turn gave some hope with a straight deaw, but Xenofontos completed his straight instead with the {A-Clubs} river. Sagias was sent to the rail in 7th place for a payday of AU$15,465.

Budin and Xenofontos Chop It Up

[user38873] • Nivo 18: 5,000-10,000, 0 ante

On the flop {8-Clubs}{6-Spades}{5-Diamonds} with 80,000 chips in the middle, Joshua Budin aka "the berater" (according to the rail, Sam Higgs may confirm) led for 55,000 out of the big blind and Xen Xenofontos made the call. The {9-Clubs} on the turn saw Budin moving all in and Xenofontos called with the straight and a set.

Xenofontos: {8-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}
Budin. {A-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}

The {4-Diamonds} river was a blank and both players chopped the pot.
