The table where the 'donkey' sits, keeps being interesting, as nobody really has a big stack but still no one plays too tight.
Our 'donkey' unfortunately lost a large portion of his chips losing on an Ace high board to a flopped and slow played top set. A few hands later he doubles up another player, when he hits top pair on Ten high flop with two clubs. He puts his opponent all in and he decides to call with his King high flush draw. The turn blanks but the river brings another club.
A couple hands later 'donkey' doubles when his held up against . But with around 15k he still has a lot of work to come back. Fortunately he never loses his smile, with or without chips.
Same goes for the short stack of the day, who requested a picture as a reward. That's the spirit!
I was following the action at table 9, when a the most active player of the table asked me to take a picture with his stack. This time I was not bad karma, as he sat out the hand but there was still a big pot brewing.
UTG raised to 1.5k and gets a call from the Cut Off, Button and Big Blind.
The flop is and it gets to the Button who leads out for 5k, only to see 3 calls.
The turn was the and again it got checked to the Button, who decided to risk all his chips and moved all in for 14.7k, he got 3 folds but the player in the Cut Off eventually decided to call.
Cards were revealed:
The river blanked and the player on the button almost tripled up, with solely a pair of sixes.
Before this hand happened I was told that the player asking for a picture recently doubled up with versus ,, getting it in after the flop and hitting runner runner Flush cards. He has a solid stack of 65k which is around double the average.
A player at table 8 asked me to take a picture of him. But apparently I wasn't good karma for him as during that hand he got involved in a pot where one player limped from Early Position and he (I don't know his name, let's call him Picture man) made it 1350, Big Blind called, limper called.
Flop is: and the initial limper moves all in for his remaining 8k. Picture man thought for a bit before calling, BB got out of the way.
Cards were revealed:
Picture man needed any ace or club, but turn and river blanked and the limper doubled up.
On the positive side, he earned an entry with his picture.
Table 3 seems to be one of the more active tables so far, since it not only had the first bustout of the day but also the following hand.
There is a raise-war between 3 players with 2 of them eventually ending up getting all in for a close to 60k pot:
Player 3 claimed he had also folded , which was no good news for Player 1 as he had less two outs. But fortunately for him the board brought another and and he took down that big pot with top two pairs.
Since action seems relatively slow compared to yesterday, most likely because players only can re-enter one time today and don't get another chance tomorrow, we have the chance to show you a picture of every current table in play.
