      I'm still looking for BongBob but have found quite a few other players.

      Thorsten77
      Nazgul
      RobbieV
      Bokkie
      JonathanLittle
      AaronLambert
      Mario "pokerccini" Puccini
      grezstar


      Thorsten77 is already busto, knocked out by recent bracelet winner Allen Bari
      Blinds 25/25, start stack 4.5k

      Bari minraised UTG, one all, Thorsten77 makes it 200 with JJ, Bari 4-bet to 450, fold, Thorsten wanted to 5-bet but just called figuring Bari is pretty weak.

      Flop 9 8 4 Bari bet, Thorsten raises, Bari 3-bets, Thorsten moves his chips to 4-bet all in, but Bari jumps the gun and goes all in out of turn. Seeing this and putting Bari on just a draw, Thorsten just calls to get it in on a safe turn.

      Turn 2x, safest turn ever. Bari jams and Thorsten makes the easy call.

      Bari shows T 7

      River J.


      Allen Bari

      Thorsten thinks he played the hand perfectly and he was right that Bari had nothing preflop. Unfortunately "hearts never lose"


      RobbieV meanwhile has doubled up.

      UTG limp, villain raise to 125, RobbieV calls with AK, SB calls, UTG calls.

      Flop K 8 3. check, check, original raiser c-bet 275, RobbieV calls, two fold

      Turn 4x. Villain makes it 900, RobbieV calls

      River T, villain goes all in and RobbieV calls

      villain shows 7 6 for the big draw that missed


      Nazgul has also chipped up a little. "I won a sick pot with 8 high"

      They are in level 3 now, blinds 50/100

      Chip counts:

      RobbieV 7.5k 9 players
      Nazgul 9k 7players
      Bokkie 16k 7 players
      grezstar 9k 7 players
      pokerccini 2.5k 6 players
      AaronLambert 12k 7 players
      JonathanLittle 4.5k 8 players
      BongBob 7k 7 players
      Iteopepe88 4.5k 8 players

      Bokkie doubled up twice in a row to get that monster stack. In the fir he 4-bet AK preflop and A came on the flop, Turn paired the board and they got it all in on the river. Villain had AQ

      In the next hand, UTG limp, Bokkie overlimps (he figured tha it was an easy squeeze for someone else and one player did raise to 250 (blinds 25/50). 3 called, Bokkie made it 1,350 villain raised 2k more, and Bokkie got it all in.

      Villain called QQ vs KK. Q comes on the flop and Bokkie sucks outs to double up again

      Blinds up to 100/200

      A few of our guys are busto. They are JonathanLittle, Iteopepe88 and Maddyhh.

      As for the rest, their chip counts are:

      Bokkie 9k 3 players
      RobbieV 16.5k 5 players
      Nazgul 5.7k 4 players
      BongBob 7k 5 players
      grezstar 4.5k 7 players
      AaronLambert 6k 7 players

      Bokkie just lost a big hand. He 3-barrel bluffed an OESD but villain called down with top pair.

      "I was pretty tight so far, so I hoped that he would fold top pair"

      RobbieV was down below 10bb, but doubled up twice in quick succession and is now the huge chip leader on his table. He had also knocked 3 players out.

      The big hand he lost to go short was TT vs 33 vs AK.

      The player with 33 went all in for 1.2k, RobbieV overshoved with about 8k, and the third player calls with 6.4k holding AK. Villain hit an ace to pick up the huge 150bb pot.

      RobbieV made it into Day 2 / Round 2 of the shootout.
      Nazgul busto 3rd
      Bokkie busto
      grezstar busto
      AaronLambert busto
      Maddyhh busto
      BongBob still in, 4 left, 7k chips blinds 150/300/25

      He took out Frenchman Team Winamax pro Tristan Clemancon heads-up.

      After that final knockout, RobbieV took out 7 of the 8 other players on the table.

      In 3 handed play, RobbieV got it in with AK vs 88 against the shortie and he hit a K on the river.

      They started heads-up with RobbieV holding a 32k to 10k chip lead.

      He said they played many small pot and villain gave him lots of pots. The key hand came when RobbieV picked up AJ, raised pre and got a call.

      Flop came A J 6 rainbow. RobbieV bets 600 into a 800 pot, villain makes it 1,600 and RobbieV flats.

      Turn K villain bets 850 and RobbieV calls again.

      River 8, villain checks, RobbieV jams and villain folds.

      In the last hand, villain opened to 450, Robbiev makes it 1,300, villain calls.

      Flop 8 8 6 , villain check, RobbieV makes it 1,600 and villain goes all in for 7.7k. RobbieV snap calls with KK, villain shows 77 and villain missed to give RobbieV the win.

      Nazgul busted when his straight lost to a flush.

      They went all in on the turn, villain had a gutshot, a pair and a flush draw while Nazgul had a straight. The flush hit on the river.

      Nazgul:" So sick, I keep losing when I'm so far ahead"

      Bokkie busted 2 hands after the 3 barrel bluff hand I posted earlier. He lost a flip with AQ vs JJ.

      Will go check on BongBob now. Let's hope he goes through as well

      Unfortunately, BongBob has also just busted out in 4th from his table.

      He shoved A 5 against a limper, and got called by 66. No help on the board and BongBob is out.

      I'm going to close out coverage today here, see you tomorrow to see if RobbieV can ship his second table!
