Nick McDonald Doubles Up, Now Hand For Hand on Bubble

Nick McDonald has played extremely patiently.  He was down to two big blinds when he picked up aces and was called by an opponent's pocket fours. 

The board ran out [kh][jd][10h][2d][qs], granting McDonald the double. 

We are now hand for hand on the money bubble. 

Gil Wasserman Cracks Aces (Event #1B)

Wasserman: [ks][kh]
Opponent:  [as][ac]

The flop comes [kd][js][9c], giving Wasserman a set of kings. 

Unfortunately for his opponent, the [7c] turn and [5d] river did not improve his hand, and Wasserman is awarded a full double up. 

Gil Wasserman - 285,000

The [kh] comes in the window, but unfortunately for the player in the cutoff, right behind it was the [6d] and the [7d], giving Dalgo a set.

Kyle:  [ac][kd]
Wright:  [as][10d]

Unfortunately for Wright, the [qd] turn and [jd] river do not improve his hand, and he is eliminated from play.

"Nut Low and Lowest Boat" (Event #3 - $300 PLO Hi/Lo)

Level 2
Blinds: 25/50

On a board reading [3s][3h][2d], both blinds check, and Tom Westort bets 200 from under the gun.  A player in middle position calls, as do both of the blinds.

When the turn comes the [4s], both blinds check once again, and Westort bets 750.  The player in middle position calls, as do both blinds.

The river is the [ad].  The blinds both check for a third time and Westort bets 3,300.  The player in middle position calls, the small blind folds, and the big blind tanks.  After a minute of thinking, the big blind hesitantly calls the bet.

"Nut low, and the lowest boat," Westort says as he turns over [jd][5d][2c][2h].

The player in the big blind mucks his cards, and the player in middle position turns over [8c][7d][5c][3c] for the same low, good for a quarter of the pot.

Westort is now sitting with 17,000 from a 10,000 starting stack. 

Morgan Litwin Puts Opponents to the Test (Event #1B)

Phi Thanh Nguyen Contemplates Calling Morgan Litwin's All-In Bet

Level 3
Blinds:  75/150

On a board reading [10s][6h][3s][5d], Morgan Litwin shoves all in from the small blind, and Phi Thanh Nguyen in middle position, goes into the tank.

After nearly two minutes of thinking about his decision, Nguyen hesitantly releases his hand.

Litwin shows [6s][6d], having flopped a set of sixes.

Even five minutes after the hand is over, the table continues to talk about the texture of the board, and the Nguyen's decision to fold.

Nguyen didn't show his cards, but said that he folded two pair.  Another player said he had folded jacks on the flop.

Morgan Litwin - 27,000

Nick McDonald Chipping Up (Event #1B)

On a board reading [9s][7d][3s][6c], Nick McDonald bets 575 in the hijack, and the player in the cutoff raises to 1,525.  McDonald smooth-calls the raise. 

McDonald leads for 2,200 when the river comes the [4c].  His opponent goes into the tank, and eventually mucks his hand.

McDonald is now sitting with 24,000 in chips.
