Mase Goes For It on River

The action was recapped after it was finished. The hijack opened to 1,200 and it folded around to Mikki Mase in the big blind who three-bet to 3,200 which was called.

The flop came    , Mase led for 3,200 and the hijack made the call. On the   turn Mase bet again, this time to the tune of 4,500 and again the hijack called.

The   peeled off on the river and Mase sized up to 10,200. The hijack went deep in the tank but reluctantly made the call hoping the straight on board would be a chop.

Mase rolled over    for king-high but played the board with a straight and the hijack had    for a flopped set but chopped the pot with the board now playing.

When the   hit the river, Hendrix checked once more before Zukowicz pushed her entire stack of 62,000 across the line. Hendrix went deep into the tank, breaking down his stack of 19,700.

"I really want to believe you. It feels like ace-four more than aces," Hendrix said aloud as he was contemplating his decision.

Eventually Hendrix dropped some chips across the line to make the call and Zukowicz tabled    for aces up. Hendrix quickly showed    before tossing his cards face down into the muck and grabbing his bag to exit the tournament area.

Jeremy Ausmus

Altynai Fung raised it up to 4,300 preflop, getting the small blind, under-the-gun player, and Jeremy Ausmus, in early position, to come along for the ride.

On the     flop, action checked back to Fung, who continued for 14,000. The small blind and under-the-gun players got out of the way, putting the action on Ausmus. He thought for a bit, before tossing in a raise to 50,000, enough to put Fung all in. She thought only briefly before pushing her chips into the middle, making the call.

Altynai Fung:   
Jeremy Ausmus:   

Fung had flopped top pair, but that was no good against Ausmus' middle set. She would need some help to stay alive, but none would come on the   turn or   river. Ausmus' set was still best, and he scooped the pot while Fung left the table.

Prianos Put In Tough Spot

Ashley Frank opened to 1,000 from early position and was called by Ying Zhao in middle position as well as Marios Prianos on the button.

Frank checked on a flop of     and Zhao led out for 1,600. Prianos made the call while Frank folded to send the two players to the turn.

Zhao continued her aggression on the   turn, firing off 9,600. Prianos responded with a raise to 9,600 only to be met with all in shove for 31,300 from Zhao. The jam sent Prianos into the tank. He pondered over his decision for quite some time, asking the dealer to count out the shove before calculating how many chips he would have left if he called and was wrong. Ultimately he did commit calling chips to put Zhao at risk.

Ying Zhao:   
Marios Prianos:   

Both players had made two pair but Zhao's was better, putting her in a good position to get the full double. The   river changed nothing, bringing Zhao back up above starting stack while putting a large dent in Prianos' stack.

Colillas Cracks Aces to Bust Monroig

Ramon Colullas

The cutoff opened to 1,200 before Ramon Colillas made it 3,500 on the button. Michael Monroig then moved all in for around 10,000 in the small blind. The cutoff mucked and Colillas hesitantly called.

Michael Monroig:   
Ramon Colillas:   

Monroig immediately stood up and said "Oh boy," as the hands were exposed. The     flop gave Colillas an open-ended straight draw which immediately came on the   turn. The   river completed the board and Monroig left the table in disgust as Colillas dragged in the last of his chips.

It's been quite the spin-up for the PokerStars Ambassador as he had just 19,000 chips at one stage on Day 1d.

Wang Coolers "JBoogs"

Ebony Kenney was kind enough to relay a cooler hand at her table. The action picked up when Jeremy "JBoogs" Levin opened for 1,100 and it folded to Grant Wang on the button who three-bet to 4,200. Levin four-bet all in for 44,000 and it was back on Wang who was put in the tank. Wang eventually made the call and the cards were on their backs.

Jeremy Levin:   
Grant Wang:   

The flop came     and it looked like both players would likely chop until the   turn hit giving the ultimate sweat to Levin. When the   peeled off on the river it was the flush of Wang that coolered the popular "Hustler Casino Live" player and sent JBoogs to the rail.

The table also wanted Wang to be referred to as "Greedy Grant" as they all joked together about his nickname.

Grant Doubles Up with Aces

The three-way action was picked up with 11,700 in the pot and a flop of     having just hit the table.

Action checked over to Ryan Grant in late position, who fired out for 3,000. The button raised it up to 10,000. After a fold from the player between them, Grant thought for a moment before stacking his remaining chips into a single tower and placing them into the center, a shove worth 27,700 total. His opponent went into the tank for a couple minutes, before making the call. He got up as though to leave before the hands had even been tabled.

Ryan Grant:   

Upon seeing the hands, the opponent was quick to point out that he would have chips left, as he had around 40,000 or so in chips, enough to cover Grant, who was massively ahead. His opponent would need to hit runner-runner to make Broadway in order to take the pot and eliminate Grant. Instead, the   turn left him drawing dead before the   river completed the board, giving Grant the double up.
