Klein "Missed Everything," Wins Anyways

mnuwwarah • Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 0 ante

Four players saw a {4-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} flop for the minimum, and only Steve Billirakis bowed out by the {10-Clubs} turn. Robert Paddock bet 52,000 when action checked to him, and Iori Yogo folded. Loren Klein made the call, and the {10-Diamonds} hit the river. Klein checked, and Paddock checked it back.

"I missed everything," Klein said, tossing {5-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} into the middle.

"You win," Paddock said with a slight smile.

Klein threw his other two cards into the middle: {k-Spades}{j-Clubs}. He collected the pot.

Shack-Harris Takes Two

[user38873] • Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 0 ante

Very fast paced action on both tables and the chips change their owner rather quickly. Brandon Shack-Harris just took down two hands in a row and is one of the top 5 chip counts at the moment.

In the first hand, he check-raised from 20,000 to 56,000 out of the small blind with the flop reading {4-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{5-Hearts}. John O'Shea had raised preflop and wanted to take it down with a continuation bet, but ended up folding.

One hand later, Shack-Harris called a min raise from Matt Ryan and found two pair with {A-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} on the checked through {Q-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{A-Clubs} board to scoop the second pot in a row.

Yogo vs. Klein

Chad_Holloway • Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 0 ante

Iori Yogo opened for 16,000 from the button only to have Loren Klein three-bet the pot to 56,000 from the small blind. The big folded, Yogo called, and the flop came down {7-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}. Klein was first to act and bet 48,000, which Yogo called.

Both players then checked the {Q-Hearts} turn and the {2-Clubs} completed the board on the river. Klein checked for a second time and Yogo thought for a few moments before spiking in a stack of orange T5,000 chips for a bet of 100,000. Klein released his hand.

On the {10-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} flop, the action between Greg Merson and Brandon Shack-Harris escalated with both players being all in and Merson at risk with less chips. Showdown:

Merson: {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}
Shack-Harris: {A-Hearts}{10-Spades}{6-Hearts}{5-Clubs}

The {5-Spades} turn and the {10-Hearts} river improved the hand of Shack-Harris to a full house and Merson headed to the payout desk.

Chidwick On The Rise

[user38873] • Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 0 ante

We didn't catch the pre flop action but Robert Paddock on the button and Stephen Chidwick in the small blind were still active on the {8-Clubs}{8-Spades}{9-Hearts} flop that was checked through. On the {8-Diamonds} turn, Chidwick check-raised to 60,000 and Paddock called to see the {K-Diamonds} river. Chidwick fired what looked like 85,000 and his opponent mucked the cards with the words "nice hand."

On the second table we saw the pre flop raise of Patrick Arena and Brandon Shack-Harris made the call. On the {4-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{9-Hearts} flop, Shack-Harris check-called 25,000 and then folded after the {8-Hearts} turn when Arena announced pot. He was shown {K-Hearts}{2-Hearts}.

Klein Pays Off Billirakis

mnuwwarah • Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 0 ante

Loren Klein raised to 18,000 from middle position and was called by only Steve Billirakis, in the cutoff. Klein continuation-bet 21,000 on the {3-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{4-Spades} flop, and Billirakis made the call after some deliberation. The {9-Diamonds} turned, and both players checked the three-flush board. A fourth diamond, the {10-Diamonds} completed the community, and Klein checked. Billirakis bet 35,000, and Klein thought for a minute or two before calling.

Billirakis showed {9-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} for a low flush, and Klein quickly mucked.

"Bet the turn and bust me," he said.

Billirakis did not respond.

Jorg Perleberg Eliminated In 15th Place ($9,299)

Jorg Perleberg
Jorg Perleberg

Robert Paddock opened to 13,000 and there was a call from Jorg Perleberg, the small blind and Ioro Yogo checked his option in the big blind. On the {4-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{9-Clubs} flop, Yogo checked and Paddock made the continuation bet. Perleberg raised pot to 111,000 and only had about 20,000 chips behind. Yogo reraised pot and Paddock quickly folded, Perleberg called.

Perleberg: {K-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{K-Spades}
Yogo: {A-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}

Second nut flush against nut flush, kind of a deadly setup. The {3-Spades} turn gave Perleberg some outs to survive but the {A-Spades} river was none of them and he has been eliminated.

Andrew Paterson Eliminated in 16th Place ($7,553)

Andrew Paterson - 16th Place
Andrew Paterson - 16th Place

Robert Paddock fired 30,000 after an {8-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} flop, and Andrew Paterson shipped for 130,000. Paddock called.

Paddock: {j-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{8-Diamonds}
Paterson: {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{9-}{7-}

"I like your hand," Paterson said.

He had good reason to, as the monster draw binked immediately on the {2-Diamonds} turn. The board paired on the river, but the {2-Spades} wasn't what Paterson needed to fill up.
