Perfect Flop for Burns

Kahle Burns defended his big blind against a raise in middle position and checked the    flop. On the turn, Kahle donkbet and did so again on the river. His opponent put him all in after the final community card and Kahle snap-called after having flopped a full house with the  .

It was pretty much the worst river card for the opponent though, because the initial raiser held   and rivered the inferior full house.

Lim Mauled by Big Slick

Action folded to Kevin Gan in the hijack and he open-shoved for 5,250. Aaron Lim called from the button, and after both blind got out of the way, he discovered the bad news.


Both players shared an ace, but Gan's kicker had him well out in front. The flop solidified his lead by pairing that kicker, and the turn left Lim drawing dead. The meaningless was put out on the river for good measure, and then Gan was shipped the double.

More than a Little Hit

Jonathan Little

Action folded to Jonathan Little on the button and he raised to 600. The small blind folded, but Mark Greer opted to three-bet all in for 3,975 more from the big blind. Little asked for a count and then dropped in a call.


It was a good call by Little, but Greer was drawing to two live cards. The flop made things interesting as it gave Little two pair and Greer an open-ended straight draw. The turn was equally as exciting as for Greer as he picked up a flush draw. The dealer burned one last time and put out the . Greer hit his flush to double while Little took a big hit to his stack.

Hellmuth Strikes Out

Phil Hellmuth and PokerNews' Chad Holloway

Gary Benson opened for 600 and action folded to 13-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth, who was already all in from the big blind for his last 275.

"I haven't looked," Hellmuth said before revealing his hand.


Hellmuth seemed delighted to be in a race situation, but his enthusiasm dampened when the flop came down .

"Oh, that's not good," Hellmuth said. The turn left him drawing dead, and as the dealer put out the on the river, Hellmuth was already busy shaking hands with everyone at the table.

"What time do we start tomorrow? I should probably show up before 15 bigs," Hellmuth said before departing. For what it's worth, Day 1b will kick off at 12:10 p.m. local time on Friday, with Day 1c following later that evening at 6:10 p.m.

Once again there was action on Table 28, and it was Didier Guerin involved against Jackson Zheng this time. Guerin got it in preflop against Zheng with the . Zheng had the .

The dealer spread the flop, and Zheng was instantly dead. There was nothing that could save Zheng, but the river only put more salt into his wound as Guerin won the pot.

Aggressive Tactics Working for Lim

Aaron Lim has been amassing chips, and he's been doing so without seeing a flop.

In a recent hand, the player on the button raised only to have the small blind three-bet to 1,650. Perhaps smelling blood in the water, Lim announced that he was all in from the big blind. The original raiser folded, and the small blind, who had about 6,000 back, thought for a minute before releasing his cards.

In the very next hand, the player in the hijack opened for 650 and his counterpart in the cutoff called. When action reached Lim in the small blind, he evidently thought a three-bet was in order as he popped it to 2,325. It did the trick as both his opponents folded.

The action folded to Marko Piper in the small blind, and he raised to 700. In the big blind was Zane Ly, and he three-bet to 1,800. Piper called. On the flop, Piper check-called a bet of 1,800, but then check-folded the turn when Ly made it 3,600 to go.

Clements Rushing

Scott Clements

With $6,222,799 in live tournament earnings, Scott Clements has won plenty of poker tournaments, including two World Series of Poker gold bracelets. Both of those bracelets came from Omaha events, though, meaning this could be the ticket to Clements' first piece of hold'em gold.

Clements recently spiked a rush of cards that has seen him shoot up to 32,000. Since coming back from break, he's picked up some nice pots and also busted two players. One of those players was David Bowen, who four-bet shoved with but couldn't beat Clements' .

Givotovsky Five-Bet Jams Into Honeyman

Just before the last break, a big pot had developed between Dylan Honeyman and Alek Givotovsky. We arrived after action completed, but we were able to determine some details. From what we could piece together, Honeyman had opened with a raise from the button only to have Givotovsky three-bet from the big blind. Honeyman responded with a four-bet, and then called off for about 15,000 when Givotovsky five-bet jammed.


Givotovsky picked the wrong time to shove, and he was punished for it after the board ran out a dry . Honeyman doubled on the hand, while Givotovsky, who was crippled, fell shortly thereafter.

Piper picks on Giesbrecht

In the very last hand before the break, Sean Giesbrecht hit the rail in a confrontation with Marko Piper. Once again the pocket kings of Giesbrecht didn't hold up, this time he was defeated by   out of the blinds.

Piper pushed all in with top pair and a gutshot on the turn of an eight-high board when Giesbrecht bet 7,000 into a pot of 8,000. He got called and a deuce on the river improved Piper to a straight.

"I Just Got Off the Plane"

That's what Jonathan Little told us as he took his seat at Table 29.

"I didn't even know I could play today," he explained. Indeed he could, but just barely as he got in with literally less than two minutes to spare. Little said he was a bit tired, but he's going to try his best to tough it out for the last two levels.
