Play has been slow and cautious thus far three-handed with few pots making it to the river.

Recently, Casey Sandretto opened to 200,000 on the button and was three bet to 800,000 by Bilguun Odgerel in the big blind.

Sandretto opted to fold as Odgerel extended his chip lead slightly.

Brandon Zuidema - 7,940,000

With 700,000 in the middle already on a flop of    , Narongsak Dhanjaichon bet 250,000 from the big blind and was called by Bilguun Odgerel in the cutoff.

The turn brought the   and Dhanjaichon now bet 425,000.

Odgerel moved him all in for 1,425,000 total and after some thought, Dhanjaichon called and was in deep trouble.

First, in a lengthy hand with a lot of deep thought involved, Bilguun Odgerel raised in the cutoff and was three-bet by Narongsak Dhanjaichon in the big blind.

Odgerel called to see the     flop. Dhanjaichon continued for 250,000 and was called.

On the   turn, he checked and Odgerel now took the betting lead, putting forward 550,000, which Dhanjaichon called.

The river brought the   and now Dhanjaichon led out for 650,000. After a couple of minutes in the tank, Odgerel moved all in for Dhanjaichon's remaining 1,480,000.

He now went into the tank and fifteen minutes after the hand began, Dhanjaichon opted to fold.

However, on the very next hand which was much quicker, he got his stack in against Brandon Zuidema with a chance to double or be eliminated.

Narongsak Dhanjaichon:   
Brandon Zuidema:   

The board came       and Dhanjaichon doubled up and took enough chips from Zuidema that Odgerel was now the chip leader.

Brandon Zuidema - 7,300,000

After several hands of smaller pots since the elimination of Angela Jordison, the final four players have been sent on a 15-minute break.
Monday, January 23, 2023 1:29 PM Local Time (about 6 days and 5 hours ago)


There will be no back to-back-victories here at Thunder Valley for High Roller champion Angela Jordison.

Action was folded to Brandon Zuidema in the small blind who inquired to Jordison about the size of her remaining stack, which was approximately 2,000,000.

Zuidema moved all in and Jordison snap-called. As was the case many times today she was in great shape, but that hadn't mattered so far.

Angela Jordison:   
Brandon Zuidema:   

"Don't do me dirty dealer," asked Jordison before the dealer spread a safe flop of    . However as has been the case for Jordison Monday, the poker gods were not on her side as the   fell on the turn.

Needing one of two queens to avoid elimination, the dealer instead put the   on the river, ending the Day 3 chip leader's day with a disappointing 5th place finish.


Brandon Zuidema - 8,360,000
Angela Jordison - eliminated

Monday, January 23, 2023 1:19 PM Local Time (about 6 days and 5 hours ago)

Casey Sandretto moved all in for his last 640,000 from the button and got called by Angela Jordison in the big blind.

Casey Sandretto:   
Angela Jordison:   

After losing a pot versus pocket sevens, Jordison was hoping to rebound with them herself.

The     flop looked great for her with a set of sevens, as did the   on the turn.

Sandretto called for an eight on the river to miraculously save him with a straight, and sure enough the   rolled off.

"I'm not running great," said Jordison after the hand as her stack has now dropped to just over two million chips.


Angela Jordison - 2,180,000
Casey Sandretto - 1,400,000

Monday, January 23, 2023 1:13 PM Local Time (about 6 days and 5 hours ago)

Brandon Zuidema limped his small blind and Angela Jordison checked her big blind to see a flop of    .

They each checked to the   turn and Zuidema now led for 80,000. Jordison raised to 25,000 and Zuidema called.

On the   river, Zuidema now checked to Jordison who bet 440,000.

Zuidema came back with a check-raise to 1,300,000, which Jordison called.

Zuidema rolled over    for a disguised flopped set and rivered full house as Jordison was forced to surrender another large portion of her stack.


Brandon Zuidema - 6,100,000
Angela Jordison - 2,700,000

After Angela Jordison raised to 125,000 in the hijack, Narongsak Dhanjaichon made it 280,000 in the cutoff.

Jordison came back with a four-bet all-in for approximately 1,300,000 effective.

Dhanjaichon mulled his decision and weighed ICM versus the value of a double up with a short-stacked Casey Sandretto under a million chips.

Finally Dhanjaicho decided to call and go with his hand.

Narongsak Dhanjaichon:   
Angela Jordison:   

A huge flip was in progress and after the dealer spread a flop of    , Dhanjaichon was on the verge of a big double up.

The board completed with the   turn and   river, taking the first significant chunk from Jordison's stack today.


Angela Jordison - 4,430,000
Narongsak Dhanjaichon - 2,630,000

Bilguun Odgerel is the new chip leader after taking a huge blind versus blind pot that has eliminated Kevin Vanderbeek.

Vanderbeek opened to 140,000 in the small blind and was three-bet to 440,000 by Odgerel in the big blind.

Vanderbeek then moved all in for 2,600,000.

Odgerel ran the math, thought for a while, then said he didn't think he could fold and made the call. It turned out he was in great shape.

Kevin Vanderbeek:   
Bilguun Odgerel:   

The board came       bringing no help to Vanderbeek and giving Odgerel the chip lead.

Ken Baime moved all in from the cutoff for his last 940,000 and was called by Brandon Zuidema in the big blind.

Ken Baime:   
Brandon Zuidema:   

Baime mentioned that he would have preferred a call in a previous hand that he'd moved in against Zuidema as he turned over his hand and saw that he was dominated.

The dealer spread a board of      , bringing no help to Baime and ending his day in 7th place.

Ken Baime - eliminated

Bilguun Odgerel defended his big blind to a raise from Angela Jordison in the hijack and the duo took a flop of    .

Odgerel check-called a bet of 90,000, but then on the   turn, the players each checked.

The river brought the   and Odgerel now led out for 260,000. Jordison quickly raised to 850,000, sending Odgerel into the tank.

In the end he chose to fold and Jordison tossed the    to the middle of the table for an ace-high bluff.

Ken Baime and Bilguun Odgerel saw a limped pot in the blinds with Baime then leading from the small blind for 75,000 on the     flop.

Odgerel called in the big blind to see the   turn and Baime led again, this time for 135,000.

Odgerel raised to 400,000 putting Baime to a decison for a large portion of his stack.

Ultimately he chose to fold and preserve his remaining stack.

Ken Baime - 820,000

After Narongsak Dhanjaichon raised to 100,000 in early position, Ken Baime moved in from the cutoff for 530,000. Dhanjaichon called and said it was close. He was certainly correct, but just on the wrong end of it.

Ken Baime:   
Narongsak Dhanjaichon:   

The board came      , brining the other two jacks to give Baime a double with trip jacks with the ace kicker.


Ken Baime - 1,310,000

Zuidema called to put Shainiuk at risk.

Roman Shainiuk:   
Brandon Zuidema:

Roman Shainiuk - eliminated
