Pickering Makes the Right Pick

[user38873] • Nivo 11: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Until the {5-Spades} {4-Clubs} {Q-Hearts} {2-Hearts} turn, there were already 49,000 chips in the pot between Jamie Pickering and Chuck Caris with the latter going all in for 24,600 chips. Pickering took some time, afraid of a possible over pair, before tossing in the chips and making the call.

Caris: {J-Hearts} {J-Spades}
Pickering: {A-Hearts} {Q-Spades}

The {Q-Clubs} on the river even gave Pickering trips and he jumped from just above average to a decent stack.

Shane Warne

We arrived at the table following a raising war between Michael Guttman and Shane Warne.

Warne: {k-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}
Guttman: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}

Warne was all in for 103,400 in chips and was in big trouble against Guttman’s pocket aces. That was until the dealer spread out the {k-Spades}{6-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{9-Clubs} board.

Warne made quad kings on his way to a massive double up that sees him sit behind a stack worth 230,000 in chips. Guttman still has 73,500 in chips.

Not a Good Day to Be a Donker

Chad_Holloway • Nivo 11: 800-1,600, 200 ante

Patrick Donker was clinging to a short stack of 6,000 when he got it all in preflop against Shao Liu, the decisive big stack at Table 29.

Donker: {q-Hearts}{10-Clubs}
Liu: {7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}

"Sit down, you got it," Liu said when Donker stood up. Donker was drawing to two live cards, but it did him little good as the board ran out a dry {6-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{5-Spades}.

"Alright guys," Donker offered before taking his leave from the tournament.

Battle of the Ace Rags

[user38873] • Nivo 11: 800-1,600, 200 ante
Tam Truong
Tam Truong

Tam Truong three-bet an open raise by Brendon Rubie for just over 20,000 and left himself 100 chips over. All other players behind them folded and Rubie put Truong all in, who accumulated the most chips in yesterday's day 1b.

The second day wasn't as pleasant, as Truong was in bad shape with {A-Spades} {2-Spades} on the button and Rubie had {A-Hearts} {7-Diamonds} on the cutoff. There were some chop outs on the {A-Clubs} {K-Clubs} {Q-Diamonds} flop, but the {6-Hearts} turn and the {3-Hearts} river sent Truong to the rail.
