Mike Leah Dominating Early On

[user339872] • Nivo 6: 200-400, 50 ante

With the flop reading {Q-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} and around 1,500 in the pot, the big blind checked and Mike Leah bet 750. His opponent raised to 2,000 and Leah called.

The turn was the {Q-Hearts}. Again his opponent checked and Leah bet 1,500. His opponent check-raised for a second time to 4,600. Leah called.

The river was the {9-Clubs} and for the third time, his opponent checked. Leah pushed enough chips in the middle to cover his opponent, who finally laid his hand down.

Mike Leah is one of the more notable players from Canada, coming into the 2017 WSOP with over $5.8 million in live tournament earnings. He is quickly building a big stack and even Kristen Bicknell, who is sitting across the table from him, said "I think you're going to have a fun day."

Moorman Can't Raise

Chris Moorman

Chris Moorman opened the hijack and the button called. The player in the big blind squeezed all in for 775 and Moorman pushed all in over the top. The lady on the button folded only for the dealer then to notice that a reraise by Moorman wasn't permitted as it wasn't a full raise. The push became a call, and the button took back her cards and called as well.

The two players with an active hand both checked the {K-Spades}{10-Clubs}{Q-Hearts} flop and Moorman checked again on the {J-Hearts} turn. The button then moved all in and Moorman folded instantly. The big blind at risk showed {K-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} while the button tabled {A-Clubs}{9-Clubs} for Broadway. The {6-Hearts} on the river was a blank and the big blind said her goodbyes.

"Why didn't you raise?" the big blind asked, still with a smile on her face.

"I couldn't!" Moorman replied with some remorse.

Moorman, despite losing some chips in the hand, still up a lot for the day.

[user339872] • Nivo 4: 100-200, 25 ante

Matthew Leecy has found himself in the middle of the Amazon Room in the Rio Convention Center, but he is near the top of the chip counts early on in Day 1a of Event #5: THE COLOSSUS III - $565 Colossus No-Limit Hold'em.

Leecy just recently arrived at a new table with a rack of chips and he raised to 500 from early position. Both the button and the small blind called, and there were three players to the flop. The dealer fanned the flop of {Q-Clubs}{6-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and the small blind checked. Leecy bet 800 and both players folded allowing Leecy to scoop the pot and add to his chip stack.
