Henry Wong’s jacks rail Dimayuga

Level: 7 Blinds: 200/400 Ante: 50

Short stacked Derrick Dimayuga moved all in with 5450 and was called by two players, Clive Horng and Henry Wong. At the flop of K K 2, Wong bet 7000 for a side pot but Horng opted to fold. At the showdown, Wong had J J, Dimayuga had A 10, and with the turn of Q and river of 3, Wong railed Dimayuga.

Clive Horng catches a straight for the win

Level: 7 Blinds: 200/400 Ante: 50

We only caught the hand at the river betting with a board showing Q Q 9 4 J. First player to act checked to Clive Horng who bet 6000. He was called and Horng won the pot with 10 8 straight.

The coin flip goes to Terry Fan

Level: 7 Blinds: 200/400 Ante: 50

From utg, Terry Fan raised it up to 1000 and was called by the button player, but when action landed on the big blind, he repopped it to 4000. Answering back with his own reraise, Fan made it 7500 causing the button to fold, and the bb to move all in for just over 10K. Fan quick-called and here’s how it went down:

Fan: 10 10

Board: 3 2 7 3 Q

Fan survived the coin flip and was awarded all the chips in the middle.

Ryan Largo doubles up

Level: 7 Blinds: 200/400 Ante: 50

With a raised pot preflop before them, three players, including Ryan Largo, saw a flop land Q 9 8. Acting first, the bb checked, the mid position player bet 4000, and Largo shoved in his 10K chips. Largo was quickly called after the bb folded and as the cards were revealed,

Largo: Q J
MP: 10 10

The turn of 3 and the river of Q further improved Largo’s hand and he landed a double up.

Runas scooping up more chips

Level: 7 Blinds: 200/400 Ante: 50

Cristopher Runas railed a player and took down a healthy pot in a hand that had some strange action going on. It began with an early position player raising to 1100 preflop, was called by a mid position player, by Runas on the button, and by both the blinds. At the flop of 9 4 2, sb and bb checked, initial raiser bet 2400, Runas called, sb folded, and bb check-raised all in for his remainnig 6000. Oddly, the initial bettor folded, but Runas called. At the showdown, Runas had A 9 for top pair against bb’s 2 3. With the turn of 6 and river of 10, Runas was shipped the pot and railed one in the process.

Lindstrom rails two simultaneously

Level: 7 Blinds: 200/400 Ante: 25

Michael Lindstrom, Elmer Kalaquian, and a player on the dealer button seat were all in preflop.

Lindstrom: A A
Kalaquian: K K
DB: 8} 9

Board: 7 4 J 8 2

And just like that, Lindstrom eliminates two players.

Ryan Largo’s Aces almost cracked

Level: 6 Blinds: 150-300 Ante: 25

With his remaining 5000 chips, Ryan Largo went all in preflop and was called by H.D.Jin. Largo had A A against Jin’s J 10. When the flop landed 10 J 5, Largo fell behind, but with the turn of 4 and river of 4, Largo regained the lead with a higher two pairs and was very relieved. Largo doubled up.
