Behbehani Soars; Kochelaevskiy Crippled

A series of preflop raises resulted in a 110,000 chip bet from the small blind from Vladimir Kochelaevskiy and a reraise all in from Salman Behbehani.

Kochelaevskiy tanked on his decision for a few minutes before finally throwing in the chips for the call.


Kochelaevskiy was way behind but still live if he could catch another ten for a set. The flop came down     opening up the possibility for a runner straight for Kochelaevskiy. The turn was the   materializing some of those outs, but the   was not what Kochelaevskiy needed. Behbehani scooped up the huge pot and Kochelaevskiy was left with very few chips.

Ahi Tuna Spicing Up Barbero's Play

Nacho Barbero

Jan Kropacek opened to 12,000 from the button, and as Nacho Barbero was delivered his lunch for the day - All American Dave's Mango Jalapeno Ahi Tuna - he three-bet the small blind to 28,000.

Kropacek would release and Barbero would start to chomp down on his lunch as "Redbull" Robbie Thompson sneaked over and had a look.

On the next hand Kropacek would open to 12,000 again - this time from the cutoff - and again Barbero would three-bet as he made it 29,000 from the button.

Kropacek folded and Thompson stated, "must be the tuna!"

"Giving me energy!" added Barbero before continuing, "or cards!"

Paging Mr. Kochelaevskiy

We are now an orbit into play on table 452 and Vladimir Kochelaevskiy has still not taken his seat.

Although an orbit is only costing him 15,000 - roughly 1/30th of his stack - an appearance soon may help his chances of making a run at a final table spot.
