Zinno Chips Up Before Dinner

Pot-Limit Omaha

Anthony Zinno won the last hand of Razz when he forced a fold from Nick Schulman on seventh street with the low runout showing. The game type then switched and Daniel Negreanu won two pots without showdown.

Last but not least, Matt Glantz limped in the small blind and Zinno min-raised to 24,000 for Glantz to call. Both checked on the     flop and Glantz bet the   turn for 23,000 in an attempt to get rid of his last yellow chips before the race off. They checked the   river and Glantz announced ace-ten, which Zinno had beat with the     .

"Is That a Boat?"


Josh Arieh's surge continued recently in a pot with Robert Campbell.

Campbell completed on third street showing an  , and Arieh made it two bets to go with a  . Campbell called and they went heads-up to fourth street.

Arieh bet fourth and fifth streets, then check-called a bet from Campbell on sixth as their boards read,

Josh Arieh:   /    
Robert Campbell:   /    

Finally on seventh, Arieh check-called one more bet from Campbell, who showed    .

With the overhead lights glaring onto the cards, Arieh couldn't immediately see Campbell's holding from across the table and asked, "Is that a boat?"

Indeed it was, as Campbell's bluff had failed.

Arieh apologized and ensured he wasn't slow-rolling Campbell as he turned up     for a final hand of      , to take the pot and boost his stack over two million.

Seven Card Stud

Eli Elezra:    /      /  
Dan Cates:    /      /  

Eli Elezra bet on fourth as Dan Cates check-called and then Cates bet all the way on every further street. Once Elezra called on seventh, Cates conceded "you win" without showinw his cards.

Elezra tabled the     and Cates was somewhat befuddled to have been called down by just a pair of eights.

Schulman Continues to Surge

Nick Schulman

No-Limit Hold'em

Two players who not long ago were nursing short stacks have solidly rebuilt to the point where they could start blasting away at each other in a big bet game.

On a turn board of     , Chris Brewer led into Nick Schulman with a roughly pot-sized bet of 75,000. Shulman responded with a raise to 330,000. Brewer had a little over 800,000 behind and gave his next move some thought before ultimately folding.

Schulman's over 1.3 million chip stack is now one of the largest in the room with 15 players left.

Brian Rast

No-Limit Hold'em

The   completed the board and Campbell led out for 110,000. Rast called and Campbell tabled    for trip tens. Rast mucked and was left with a very short stack.

Rast was eliminated a few hands later in Stud after getting all-in against Jesse Klein and losing with a pair of eights against Klein's pair of queens.

Schulman Chips Up Without Showdown

Limit 2-7 Triple Draw

Nick Schulman raised from under the gun and was three-bet by Anthony Zinno in the small blind. Chris Brewer came along from the big blind and Schulman also called. It was a fair fight on the first draw as they all took one each. Zinno checked, Brewer bet and received two calls.

They all drew one each once more and now it checked to Schulman, who bet and was called only by Brewer. Schulman patted while Brewer took one and the latter then check-folded to a bet. As the far shortest stack not that long ago, Schulman has suddenly reached a seven-figure mix and is right in the middle of the pack.

Arieh Wins, So Does His Team

Josh Arieh

Limit 2-7 Triple Draw

Proudly sporting his Atlanta Braves cap today, Josh Arieh just won a big triple draw pot to boost his stack among the chip leaders.

Arieh raised in early position and got called by Mike Wattel on the button and Robert Campbell in the big blind.

Campbell drew two, Arieh drew one and Wattel drew one.

Campbell then checked to Arieh who bet and got called by Wattel, before Campbell came in with the check-raise, which both his opponents called.

On the second draw, Campbell and Arieh both patted, while Wattel still needed two. Campbell bet and Arieh raised, eliciting a fold from Wattel before Campbell called.

Both players remained pat, and Campbell then check-called a bet from Arieh who tossed forward a wheel to drag a huge pot.

Shortly after, Arieh watched the final out of the World Series as his team wrapped up the championship.

A pretty good few minutes for the Atlanta native.

No Miracle Comeback for Friedman

Adam Friedman

Limit Hold'em

Adam Friedman raised from under the gun and Roman Yitzhaki three-bet on the button, Yuval Bronshtein called in the big blind and Friedman called. On the     flop, Bronshtein checked and Friedman bet to receive two callers.

The   turn brought another check by Bronshtein and Friedman bet with 8,000 behind. Yitzhaki raised and Bronshtein made it three bets. Friedman was pained, then laughed, and needed some time to make a decision.

"Just throw your hand in the garbage bin right there," Eli Elezra joked. Friedman then folded and Yitzhaki called. The   river brought a bet of Bronshtein and a fold frm Yitzhaki.

"Show at least one," Friedman demanded from his table neighbour and Bronshtein replied "I show, no worries, don't want you to get a heart attack" before flipping over    for the nuts.

"They will never hear the end of it if I come back from 8,000 chips and win this," Friedman said as he was forced all-in from the big blind in the next hand. Paul Volpe limped the button, Bronshtein folded    in the small blind and Friedman kept his cards face down, which everyone agreed to.

Volpe's    were exposed and he flopped broadway on the       board. "Let's see if I can at least chop this," Friedman said with a grin on the face, exposed    and left with a "thank god I didn't see this."

Schulman Rebuilds Through Negreanu


Daniel Negreanu completed on third street and only got a call from Nick Schulman, whose stack had been shrinking again. Negreanu then bet every street with Schulman calling down and their boards reading,

Daniel Negreanu:   /    / 
Nick Schulman:   /    / 

Schulman called a final bet on seventh street as well, with Negreanu showing      .

Schulman however made his hand on seventh street, showing       to pip Negreanu.

"I was rooting for a call", said Negreanu afterward as his chips were pushed to Schulman.

Campbell Crashes Out

Chad Campbell

Pot-Limit Omaha

After losing a big pot to Matt Glantz just prior when Glantz flopped the nut flush and got three streets of value, Chad Campbell was in the big blind and got it in for what appeared to be 98,000, which was called by Chris Brewer.

Chad Campbell:     
Chris Brewer:     

"Eights are in the lead," Daniel Negreanu said. Quickly after he added "not anymore" after the     flop.
