Kid Poker, The Magician & a Professional Best Friend Seated at Table 39

[user153638] • Nivo 1: 25-25, 0 ante

Most of the time showing up late for a tournament doesn't have any repercussions, but every once in awhile they do. Case in point — Table 39.

That table was recently opened to accommodate some latecomers including Daniel Negrean, Jeff Gross and Antonio Esfandiari. Needless to say, that isn't a soft lineup.

In one hand we observed, a player in middle position opened with a min-raise to 50 and Negreanu called from the button. The player in the big blind came along, and then all three players proceeded to check it down as the board ran out {5-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{6-Spades}. The original raiser rolled over the {2-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} for two pair, and it was good as both Negreanu and the big blind sent their cards to the muck.

Table 29 Shaping Up to Be One of the Toughest

[user153638] • Nivo 1: 25-25, 0 ante

Table 29 is shaping up to be one of the more interesting lineups in the tournament. It currently houses two prominent female poker players in Vanessa Rousso and Sam Cohen, 2010 World Series of Poker champ Jonathan Duhamel, and the winner of Event #1 $1,100 No-Limit Hold'em Accumulator here at the WSOP APAC, Luke Brabin.

In an early hand at that table, Rousso opened the action with a raise to 75, which Cohen called from middle position. The player on the button made the call, and after Brabin and Duhamel folded from the blinds, three players saw a flop of {8-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}.

Two checks saw the player on the button bet 150, Rousso folded, and Cohen called to see the {K-Clubs} turn. Cohen checked for a second time, and then folded to a bet of 225 from her opponent.

Welcome to the WSOP APAC Event #4 $1,650 No-Limit Hold'em Terminator

[user153638]

It's a busy day here at the 2014 World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific. Event #2 $2,200 No-Limit Hold'em will crown a winner, while Event #3 $1,650 Pot-Limit Omaha looks to play down to a final table. Meanwhile, Event #4 $1,650 No-Limit Hold'em Terminator will kick off here in the Crown Poker Room.

So what does "Terminator" mean? It means that every player in the tournament will have a $500 bounty on their head. Knock someone out, win $500 — it's that easy. So, a third of each buy-in will be devoted to the bounties while the other $1,000 will go into the prize pool.

The Terminator tournament is one of the five new events on this year's WSOP APAC schedule, but it's not new to Australia. For years the Crown Casino has been offering the format including at their popular Aussie Millions series. Now, for the first time, the WSOP will award a Terminator bracelet.

The field is expected to be a mix of local Australian hopefuls and established poker pros. Among the latter we expect to see 13-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth; 2014 WSOP Player of the Year contenders George Danzer and Brandon Shack-Harris; reigning WSOP APAC Main Event champ Daniel Negreanu; and 2013 WSOP Main Event champ Ryan Riess.

Players will begin with 4,500 in tournament chips, and the plan for the day is to play 10 one-hour levels with a 15-minute break after every two levels. There will also be a one-hour dinner break at the end of Level 6. Late registration will remain open through the dinner break.

Cards will be in the air in a little over an hour, so stay tuned ... we'll be back!
