      Nazgul and Bokkie are playing here.



      This is the last event before the Main Event and obviously the last Omaha event too.

      It is a triple chance event with $5k start stacks and 2 $5k rebuys.

      Bokkie was already all in on his table with his first stack within the first 10 hands.

      On a board of T 7 3, Bokkie got it in with David Willams.

      Q Q A 2 vs A T 7 3, Turn 5, River K and they chopped it up with Willams taking the high and Bokkie taking the nut low.

      David Williams, has a Chinese poker game also going on with Nenad Medic, Erick Lindgren and Noah Boeken

      Alexander Kuzmin on Bokkie's table

      This guy played with Bokkie, BongBob and Jens Kyllonen in the $10k PLO, he was pretty tilted on the table and was berating the Europeans.

      Nazgul has gone busto, I got the hands from the guys who won each of his 3 stacks, but can't be sure how accurate the hands are:

      In the first hand, they got it in on a Q 9 7 4 turn with Nazgul holding Q 9 A 5 and villain had Q 4 x x, he hit the 4 on the river.

      In the second Nazgul had bottom set and got it in with bottom set vs a flush draw with no low draw, one guy folded middle set and the flush draw hit.

      In the third and last hand, villain said he won the hand with the nut flush vs 2 pair, he didn't give more info than that.

      BongBob "I'm on Tilt already because everyone is so bad. I'm not sure if all of them played this game before."

      BongBob is sitting on something like 8k now, he rebought for a full stack early on.

      BongBob limped J 5 4 2, Carlos Mortensen on his right limped, another limped and the blinds also joined in.

      Flop J 8 2 SB donks 200 into 500, BongBob calls, Mortensen pots it to 1,300, SB calls, BongBob repots to put Mortensen in for his last 6k, Mortensen called and SB folded.

      Mortensen showed T 8 8 2 and BongBob missed his low draw as Mortensen Scooped with his set.

      Bokkie meanwhile has also rebought for the full amount and is sitting on about 13k, just under the starting stack.

      He said everyone is just limping on his table, "except me, I don't like it". He also told me that someone also got into a big hand with K J 7 2 and managed to split with the 7 2 for a low.

      Bokkie: "7 2 is like having nothing, and KJ ....."

      Dario Minieri, first time I've seen him this series.

      On my way back to post this update, one of the lady dealers behind Devilfish on an empty table asked him "do you know that guy in Table 22 Seat 4? I think he's famous." Devilfish looked and said something to insult the guy, and I interjected, "It's Alan Kessler right?"
      Devilfish: "Yea that him, is he famous?"
      Me: "Kinda I guess"
      Devilfish:" Kind of? In his own house maybe"
      Me: "Well, not as famous as you of course"

      Devilfish then turned around to the dealer and told her something like "I'm not famous for poker, but I'm famous for what I can do in bed."

      PokerNoob just signed in on a late registration.

      BongBob :"This is so sad, I think I want to go home, I can't watch this anymore. Most of these guy don't know what they are doing"

      On Bokkie's table, there was a pretty funny hand.

      UTG limped, Bokkie utg+1 raised, utg+2 3-bet and MP1 repot it, everyone folded including bokkie, utg+2 went all in and MP1 called

      It was A 2 2 4 ss for UTG+2 and A J T 2 ss for MP1. The board pretty much blanked and UTG+1 picked it up with his pair of deuces.

      Bokkie looked at me and said "and he called me a fish the other day" referring to MP1

      Alexander Kuzmin also looked at me and Bokkie and couldn't stop himself from giving out a wry smile.

      We've got quite a few late entries here, Gabriel Nassif and psychobenny are both playing now. durrrr, Huck Seed and Nick Schulman are also all playing now.

      Bokkie 27k
      PokerNoob 13k
      psychobenny 16k
      BongBob 23k
      Gabriel Nassif 42k

      I saw Bokkie win a nice pot after turning the nuts and redrawing to the new nuts on the river.

      On a board of 7 K T J after a 5 way limped pot, villain bet 1.5k, Bokkie made it 6k with A Q X X (with 9k behind) and villain called.

      River 6, Bokkie goes all in and villain mucks. "Nice turn for me, he had the straight too.

      Gabriel is running pretty hot on his table, in one of the first few hand, Mike Matusow to his right opened to 650, Gabriel pots it with A K 9 2 ds.

      Flop A K J check check

      Turn 3 check check

      River X Mike bets 5k, Gabriel minraises to 10k and Mike calls with A Q J 3

      The in another big pot he won recently, he inadvertently slowrolled his opponent.

      He raised with A A 8 7 unsuited and villain called

      Flop A Q 8 Gabriel bet 1,400 into a 1,650 pot, villain repots and Gabriel tanks thinking that he might be behind against vilain who probably has a low draw and a good high hand. He tanked for 2 minutes and villain said: "I hope you're not slowrolling me with a set of aces"

      At this point, Gabriel thought that villain read his hand and was levelling him into callin so he tanked for another 2 minutes. The clock was called and finally he called.

      villain had A Q K K and was pretty much drawing dead against Gabriel. After that, his table couldn't stop making fun of his "slowroll"

      Opponent: "I've played millions of hands and have never seen anything like this"

      Mike Matusow: "I've played for a long time and never seen anything like this too"

      Gabriel: "I feel like an idiot"

      Jacques Zaicik (an older French player) : "He is an idiot, I know, I'm his friend"

      BongBob was down to just 1bb and was moved to a table with durrrr and Nick Schulman. He lost a big pot in his starting table.

      UTG limped, BongBob limped wirh A 5 2 2, 2 more limped and the blinds joined in

      Flop 9 6 2 BongBob bet 1.1k into 1.5k, 2 called

      Turn 6 check, BongBob bet 1/2 pot 2.3k, BB pots it (but they miscounted the pot and it was only 4.8k, BongBob called since he got good odds because of the miscounted bet.

      River Q missing the flush draw, villain showes 10k into 20k, and BongBob called getting 3:1 odds.


      In the first all in at his new table, he was all in against durrrr and sucked out for a chop with A T 7 5 vs A J 7 4

      He then won the high hand in a 3 way all in between him, durrrr and another player. He made the flush with K 8 2 3 vs A J T 7 vs A J 8 2, the other two chopped the side pot on the board of Q T 7 4 5

      Then he scopped a pot BvB, Sb raised and BB called almost all in.

      Flop A 9 5, villain bets and BongBob calls with J T 9 4 vs T 7 6 3 and is now back up to 3.7k

      BongBob tripled up again to go up to 12k, and then got moved to Bokkie's table,

      at Bokkie table, he took down several medium sized pots and moved up to 30k. That's from 300 all the way to 30k, sick comback.

      Unfortunately, he lost a big hand and dropped back down to 17k now.

      BongBob raised UTG, CO called, SB called and BB called

      Flop K 4 Q BongBob bets 3.5k, BB goes all in for about 13k and BongBob calls with aces and the backdoor nut low draw but villain had a set of kings.

      Bokkie also took down a big pot vs David Williams.

      Williams limped in EP, Bokkie raised in CO, Williams called

      Flop 5 K 2 check, pot, call

      Turn 5 check, pot, Williams folds with less than 1 pot sized bet behind.

      Bokkie had A A K 4

      "He plays so horrible" referring to Williams

      BongBob earned a small double up from David Williams but Williams got a double up back from Bokkie at the second last hand.

      In BongBob's hand, it was A A 5 2 vs A K 7 4 and aces held.

      In Bokkie case, Williams pretty much commited himself with K Q 9 7 preflop, and Bokkie called with A A 4 T.

      Flop Q Q 5, Williams donks all in and Bokkie calls.

      Bokkie:"That's the worst you can do there, donk out on the flop. I can't bluff and I would fold if I don't have a big hand"

      Bokkie 45,450
      PokerNoob 56,400
      BongBob 25,500

      Gabriel Nassif



      162 left here, blinds 500/1k

      BongBob 18k
      Bokkie 45k
      Gabriel Nassif 45k
      PokerNoob 52k

      PokerNoob said he had already played a few sick hands on his table, but he will tell me later at the break.

      BongBob was already down to under 10k, but just won a nice pot to more then double up.

      BongBob limped in CO, BU raised, BB called and BongBob called.

      Flop K 6 9 BB goes all in, BongBob calls and BU folds

      8 7 6 4 vs A T 2 4

      BongBob makes a straight with a T on the turn and another high card on the river meant he scooped.

      We're on break here, blinds will bw up to 600/1.2k after the break

      BongBob left his previous table with 15k but now has 55k already after going down to about 6k at one point.

      He first won a small hand in a 5 way pot where he turned a full house.

      He then doubled up against Sorel Mizzi. UTG raised, 2 called, Mizzi called in SB and BongBob called in BB with Q T 9 7 ds.

      Flop K J 7 rainbow and BongBob had two backdoor flush draws

      UTG c-bets, Mizzi pots it, BongBob goes all in and Mizzi calls with middle set J J x x, BongBob turns his straight and scooped the pot for a nice double up.

      Sick rollercoaster for him so far, 300 -> 30k -> 6k -> 55k

      BongBob 55k
      Bokkie 45k
      PokerNoob 25k
      Gabriel Nasif 40k

      Falling asleep here, most exciting thing that happened was Dario Alioto sitting down to Bokkie's right. He's short stacked tho and Bokkie sent him a welcome gift with a 3-bet on his second hand.

      Dario opened 3.2k in MP, Bokkie raises to 11k in HJ, Dario rank and folds with about 20k behind.

      dinner break here as well

      about the sick hand from PokerNoob, he was one outed in a huge pot by David Williams, PokerNoob had nut low, top pair and the nut flush draw while williams got it in with absolute junk. He hit a one out for the straight flush to scoop.

      Bokkie 85k
      BongBob 55k
      Gabriel Nassif 25k
      PokerNoob 9k

      Bokkie won a big pot without showdown.

      He raised UTg with JJ43 and got 3 callers

      Flop A 6 2, he bets 8k into 14k, one call

      Turn 6 he pots it and villain folds.

      He said he was planning to go all in on pretty much any turn card that is not a 4 or a 3, and the board pairing was pretty good for him as well.

      The BongBob rollercoasters rolls on, he lost a huge preflop all in pot to drop down to 7k, but then went back up to 40k now.

      He lost with AKT2 ds vs AQJT ss for a 50k pot.

      He then won a small pot to go back up to 7bb, and then won he big one.

      He had to get it in with 6 5 4 2 ds preflop, two players were also in and there was still some action between them on the K 7 5 flushdraw flop.

      BongBob hit a 3 on the turn to scoop the pot.

      On Bokkie's table, it was on the river with the board showing 7 3 4 5 4, Bokkie bet out, one called and Noah Boeken tank and called

      Boeken mucked, Bokkie tabled A2 for the nut low and straight, but villain won the high pot with 55 for the full house.

      I'm not sure what Boeken folded, but from what I heard in his conversation with Bokkie in Dutch, I'm guessing some combination of aces.

      I forgot to add that before that, BongBob and Bokkie played on the same table for a while, they actually went all in BU vs SB

      AK52ss for Bokkie, AAK4ss for BongBob, They chopped it up on a 6 8 7 Q 3 board with Bokkie taking the low and BongBob the high.

      The BongBob roller coaster has ended, he busted out in the last level, but I'm not sure how.

      In the hand a while before he went out, he folded and was down to 5bb

      On a flop of 3 T 3 villain checked, BongBob bet 5.5k into ~20k pot, one fold and villain calleed.

      Turn 7 villain bets enough to put BongBob pretty much all in, and BongBob folds with just 5bb left.

      Gabriel Nassif has also gone busto but Bokkie is doing well, and is up to around 150k now after winning two big hands,

      In the first, it was BvB, Bokkie opened for 7.3k and villain called

      Flop 9 6 8

      Bokkie bets, villain min raises and Bokkie announces all in (which is effectively pot), villain folds.

      Bokkie had A A 9 3. "He represented nothing there with a min raise, if h had T 7, he would raise bigger, it made no sense. I was going to go in with the A and any low draw."

      He then busted Noah Boeken. Bokkie raised HJ, Boeken called in BB

      Flop 7 K 3 Boeken check raises all in, Bokkie says, "oops, I call"

      A 6 J 2 vs A K 3 x and Bokkie scooped it with T Q on turn and river.

      Btw, I think Bokkie's parents just showed up to rail him.
