Event 1B Officially On the Books

Players are now bagging and tagging in flight B of the $600 No Limit Hold’Em Multi Day Event here at Foxwoods.  This flight finished with 20:001 minutes left in Level 17 (2,000/4,000 blinds with a 500 ante).  The 33 players from this flight will join the previous 40 players from yesterday's 1A flight.  A full list of chip counts from this flight will be uploaded to for you in a bit.

Je Wook Oh Punishing the Bubble

Je Wook Oh raised to 9,000 in middle position.  The small blind smooth called, and the big blind shoved all in for 22,500.  Oh reraised to 70,000, and the player in the small blind folded his hand.

Oh:  [4c][4d]
Opponent:  [ks][qd]

The flop came [ad][5d][2c] keeping Oh in the lead, but that quickly changed when the [kc] came on the turn, giving his opponent a pair of kings.  Oh regained the lead when the [3h] came on the river to give him the straight and send his opponent home in 36th place, just four shy of making the money/Day 2.

Oh appears to be the chip leader in the room at the moment with just shy of 300,000.


5 Away From Bag and Tag in Event #1B

We are currently 30 minutes into level 16 (2,000/4,000/500) and we are five players away from bag and tag for the night.  33 of the 273 starting players in this flight will advance to Day 2 on Tuesday at noon.

Joe Grodowski Doubles Up

Joe Grodowski raised to 4,500.  A player in middle position called, the player in the cutoff shoved all in.  Grodowski called the all-in for less, and the player in middle position tank-folded his hand.

Grodowski: [8d][8h]
Button:  [as][kh]

The board ran out [10c][7c][4d][6d][5h] awarding Grodowski a full double up to 65,000.

Dinner Break Event Updates (1B & 3)

Event 1B ($600 NO LIMIT HOLD’EM MULTI DAY EVENT) is just about to go on dinner break, and Event 3 ($300 PLO HI / LO 8+ “With Re-Entries”) has 40 minutes left on their dinner break.

There are currently 74 players remaining in 1B, and they will be returning to 1,000/2,000 blinds with a 300 ante.  Flight 1B registration is closed and there were 273 entrants today.

Event 3 had 48 total entrants and there are currently just 12 remaining.  They will be coming back to blinds of 800/1,600.

Dave Lane Eliminates One

A player under the gun raised to 2,500.  Dave Lane was next to act and reraised to 6,000.  The original raiser said, "I am putting you on ace king, I call."

When the flop came [ah][2h][7s], the original raiser checked, Lane bet 15,000, and the player raised all in for nearly 40,000.  Lane thought for a moment and said, "I don't think you have an ace since you put me on ace-king pre-flop, I call."  Lane turned over [ks][kc].  His opponent showed [qh][jh] for a flush draw.

The turn and river did not improve his opponent's hand, so Lane would eliminate the player and chip up to just around 100,000.

Quad Jacks for Dale Phillips in Event #3 ($300 PLO HI LO 8+ With Re-Entries)

On a board reading [kh][jd][2c][js], Dale Phillips checked in the small blind and the player on the button announced, "pot," effectively putting himself all in.  Phillips quickly called.

Phillips showed [jc][jh][8c][6s], having turned quad jacks.

The [7c] came on the river and after counting out the chips carefully, it was determined that the player on the button had 100 remaining.  Phillips said to him, "I didn't reraise you, so you still have a chip left."  The player asked the dealer if there was still time to rebuy and upon hearing that the rebuy period was closed, the player opted to keep his single 100 chip, and threw his cards into the muck face down, never having exposed his hand to the table.

There are 36 players remaining in level 5 of Event #3, and the blinds are currently at 100/200.

Michael Dobbs Knocks One Out

On a board reading [10c][8c][6h][2h], a player in early position shoved all in and Michael Dobbs quickly called.

Dobbs had flopped a set holding [6d][6c] against his opponent's turned two pair holding [10d][2d].

The [8s] on the river gave Dobbs the full house and sent his opponent to the rail.

George Colli's Huge Quadruple Up

In a huge pre-flop betting war, there were four all-ins preflop on the Foxwoods feature table (streaming live at

Player Under the Gun: [qc][qd]
George Colli - Early Position:  [ad][as]
Player in the Cutoff: [kh][5h]
Robert Cournoyer - Button: [ah][kd]

(The player in middle position Joe Chividian announced that he folded pocket tens in the midst of all of the betting and raising).

The flop came [10c][7s][4s] to which Chividian sighed out loud as he would have flopped a set of tens, but had folded preflop.  The [kc] on the turn and [jc] on the river gave Cournoyer a pair of kings, which was enough to scoop the side pot.  But Colli's pair of aces would award him a full quadruple up and he is now sitting with around 45,000.
