Rousso Done in by Honeyman

Pot-Limit Omaha

We missed the elimination of Vanessa Rousso, but the man that sent her packing, Dylan Honeyman, was kind enough to fill us in on what happened.

According to him, Rousso got her last 2,200 all in preflop holding {q-}{q-}{j-}{x-} and was up against his {10-}{9-}{8-}{7-}. The {8-}{5-}{4-} flop kept Rousso in the lead, and the {3-Spades} turn actually gave her a spade flush draw. Unfortunately for her, a non-spade {9-} spiked on the river to give Honeyman a winning two pair.

Hortin Keeps on Firing

Chad_Holloway • Nivo 5

Omaha Hi-Lo

Dylan Hortin raised to 600 from the cutoff and Daniel Negreanu called from the big blind to see a flop of {5-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{5-Hearts}. Negreanu check-called a bet of 300 and then check-called one of 600 in the {A-Diamonds} turn. When the {9-Diamonds} completed the board on the river, Negreanu checked for a third time and Hortin bet 600. It did the trick as Negreanu released his cards.

The Pat-Pat Man

2-7 Triple Draw

Mohsin Charania raised to 600 from the hijack and Rainer Quel defended from the big blind. The former drew two on the first draw while the later took three. Quel check-called a bet of 300, and then he drew one when Charania stood pat.

Quel check-called another bet — this time 600 — and then both players stood pat. Once again Quel check-called a bet, but he mucked when Charania rolled over a 7-5-4-3-2, otherwise known the nuts.

Time for Another Break

Two more levels are in the books, and that means it's time for the second 15-minute break of the day.

Esfandiari vs. Ashby

Chad_Holloway • Nivo 4

No-Limit Hold'em

Richard Ashby raised to 300 from the cutoff and received called from Jackson Zheng and Antonio Esfandiari on the button and in the small blind respectively. When the flop came down {6-Hearts}{4-Spades}{7-Diamonds}, Esfandiari checked and Ashby continued for 450.

Zheng folded, and then Esfandiari checked-raised to 1,175. Ashby called, both players checked the {A-Spades} turn, and the {Q-Diamonds} completed the board on the river. Once again both players checked and Esfandiari tabled the {7-Hearts}{9-Spades} for a pair of sevens. It was good as Ashby sent his cards to the muck.
