Event #38: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em

Event #38, AKA "The Think Tank"

• Nivo 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

The remaining 13 players have slowed down to a snail's pace as the action continues here in the Amazon Room. Here's just a small sample of the riveting action.

Earlier on table 284, the action folded around to Daniel Aldridge who raised to 45,000 from the hijack before Matthew Lupton re-raised to 82,000 from the cutoff. After three minutes in the tank, Aldridge four-bet it to 700,000 and with only 340,000, Lupton tanked for almost two minutes before folding his hand.

Meanwhile on table 278, Robert Cheung announced a "straight all-in" from early position, but everyone else laughed before folding to him. Is there a difference between an all-in and a straight all-in?

Then back on the other table, Ryan Laplante raised to 55,000, but all the others elected to fold. "You guys can still read me!" Laplante laughed as he showed {Q-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}.
