Tiny Dots

• Nivo 27

Michele Limongi has been awkwardly fiddling with his glasses all night, and it's been entertaining to watch him squeeze out the dots on his tiny cards. After the last hand, he made a comment to the floor in the best English he could muster.

"Why, in the States, do you not use bigger cards? So they're easier to see?"

From across the table, John Monnette quickly piped up. "You can't squeeze big cards. Where's the fun in that?"

2-7 Triple Draw

John Monnette opened from the button, and Michele Limongi three-bet from the big blind. Monnette called taking two cards, and Limongi took one. Limongi bet, Monnette called. They each took one card on the second round, and Limongi fired again. It worked this time as Monnette folded with a curious look.

Bracelets and Such

• Nivo 27

It's probably a good time to mention that both Michele Limongi and John Monnette are gunning for their first bracelet here tonight. Limongi has had some good success in mixed games, with results that include a fourth-place finish in a H.O.R.S.E. event here in 2009. Monnette is newer to the game than Limongi, but he's already becoming a household name around the Amazon Room. It helps when you go heads-up with a guy named Ivey. In 2009, Monnette finished second to Mr. Ivey in a 2-7 No-Limit Draw event. He finished in fifth in the $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo Championship the same summer and has about $750,000 in career earnings.

And then there's Eric Buchman, by far the most accomplished player at the table. He's posted significant cashes in all disciplines of poker at the W.S.O.P., and he's the proud owner of one shiny gold bracelet. It came last year in a $2,000 Limit Hold'em event, and it came with more than $200,000. Still, that's only his fourth-largest career cash. The biggest one came the year prior when he binked more than $2.5 million for a fourth-place finish in the Main Event.

Monnette Pulling Away

• Nivo 27

Michele Limongi completed the small blind, John Monnette raised to 60,000, and Limongi called. The flop fell {j-Spades}{k-Spades}{j-Hearts}, and Limon check-called 39,000 from Monnette. Both players checked the {4-Spades} on the turn, and the {2-Spades} on the river, and Limongi opened {q-}{10-}{9-}{x-} for queen-high. Monnette opened {8-Spades}{6-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{2-Clubs} for a pair of fours, and shipped the pot.

No-Limit Hold'em

John Monnette opened to 50,000 from the button, and Eric Buchman three-bet jammed for 306,000. Monnette had the dealer break it down, and he scruffily considered for a bit before slipping his cards into the muck.

Buchman has three-bet shoved once and open-shoved the button once more in the meantime. He's worked his stack up to 450,000 again.

Buchman One Big

• Nivo 27

We just switched to no-limit hold'em. It's the Cadillac of Poker, you know. In any event, the button fell such that Eric Buchman had to post the lone big blind. He had already put the small blind out in preparation and was pestering Michele Limongi to put in his big. When the dealer corrected the blinds, Buchman put up a bit of a fight at having to post the extra 20,000. Just a little fight, though.

The result? He got a walk.
