      RobbieV and Nazgul are both scheduled to play in Day 1A while BongBob and Allanon are playing in Day 1B. I'm still not too sure when ScHnibL0r is going to play his Day 1.

      Day 1A is starting in an hour. Come back then for the updates!

      Nazgul was already put to an all in call on the river, but he folded eventually. Here's the hand:

      EP raised, BU called, Nazgul 3-bet the BB, EP folded and BU called.

      6 2 8, Nazgul bets 2,400, BU calls. Turn J, Nazgul bets 5,050, BU calls. River A Nazgul checks, BU goes allin for around 30k (overbetting the pot) and Nazgul tanks for a long time before folding.

      Nazgul had A K, villain didn't show. Nazgul: "Jacks or nothing".

      RobbieV also said that he would fold there. He thought the guy should have Jacks or possibly a lower set.


      RobbieV meanwhile also lost a pretty good pot after folding on the river. He had Q 6 vs the big blind. Villain check-called 400 and 900 on the flop and turn, and made a pot sized bet on the river and RobbieV folded. The board was Q J 6 3 J.

      And they say this is supposed to be the least busy of the main event days. It's already super hard for me to get from one section of the rail to another.

      He's a few interesting hands from RobbieV, he says he's been running really good and would have four stack already if they weren't playing so deep.

      In the KQ vs QQ hand he bet 400 on the flop, 800 on the turn and 1,900 on the river and got called 3 times. Villain did not 3-bet QQ pre-flop.

      He picked up KK two times. In the first one, he opened from the BU and SB called. Flop came J 4 J, SB checked, he bet 425, SB made it 1,025 and RobbieV called.

      Turn K, villain bet 1,800 and RobbieV called. River T, villain bet 2,300, RobbieV made it 8,100 and villain folded.

      ------

      In the other hand with kings, it was 5 way on the flop, oh 9 4 9, it was checked to RibbieV and he bet about half pot. BU raised it to 2k and SB insta called. RobbieV mucked his KK.

      Turn T, SB checks, BU bets and SB calls. River 9 and it goes check chedk.

      SB had J9 for quads while BU has TT.

      ------

      Nazgul lost a pretty big pot with flush over flush. Flop was 3 5 9 . Villain checked, Nazgul bet and villain raised it, Nazgul called with 6 7 for a double gutshot + flush draw.

      Turn Q villain checks and Nazgul bet again, villain calls. River 2 and villain check called again. Villain showed J T for a better flush.

      ------

      Meanwhile, ScHnibL0r made a double up and has around 45k chips now. He limp called with 4 4. Flop came 3 4 K rainbow, ScHnibL0r checks, villain bet, ScHnibL0r raises and villain calls.

      Turn 5 giving a flush draw, ScHnibL0r bets and villain calls. River 3 completing the flush draw, ScHnibL0r goes all in and villain calls with A K without a flush.

      Nazgul had to made a fold on the river after villain made a big check-raise on a flush board.

      Nazgul raised K J from MP, SB called and BB called. Flop came K J 6, both check, Nazgul bets, SB folds and BB called. Turn Q check, check. River 4 BB checks, Nazgul bets 2,300, BB makes it 10,500 and Nazgul snap mucks. BB showed 8 9

      -----

      ScHnibL0r busted two shorties since the last update. In the first hand, he open raised AA and one player to his left cold called. Flop came K 7 6, bet and call. Turn J giving a flush draw, Bet and call. River 8, ScHnibL0r bets enough to put villain all in, villain calles with KQ.

      In the next hand,.after one player limped, ScHnibL0r raised KQo from late position, a shortie with 13 big blinds went all in, the limper folded and ScHnibL0r calls. KQ vs 88 and ScHnibL0r hit the turn.

      There was an interesting hand with Nazgul:

      BU limped, and Nazgul raised from the BB to 950, the button theres in another 1,050 chips (which means he put in a total of 1,350) without saying anything, Nazgul requested the floor to be called to rule if it is a call or raise and the floor ruled it as a raise.

      BU threw in the 300 more required to make it a raise and Nazgul re-raised to 3,000 and BU called. The flop came A K Q, Nazgul bet out and Bu insta mucked.

      ______________

      ScHnibL0r lost a pretty big pot with a flopped flush. Villain who had just sat down open raised to 1,600 from UTG, MP called and ScHnibL0r called from the BB.

      Flop 3 2 2, ScHnibL0r checked, villain bet and both called. Turn J, ScHnibL0r checked, villain bet 2,500 and both called.

      River J, ScHnibL0r bets 5,450, villain makes it 15,000, MP folds and ScHnibL0r call after tanking. Villain shows AJ and ScHnibL0r told me he had 33

      Here are the chip counts before dinner the break, and some interesting hands to follow after that:

      RobbieV 43.5k
      ScHnibL0r 65k
      Nazgul busto
      Tonding 60k
      eleph 36k
      MongooseRus 28k
      Thorsten77 28.5k
      vedevas busto
      innerpsycho 42k
      akia 23k
      Jan1000 23.5k
      DrAction busto

      Nazgul was down to around 7k chips after losing the hand below:

      villain had opened for the 4th to 5th time in a row and Nazgul 3-bet with QQ, villain called.

      Flop A J 9, both checked. Turn A, villain leads out and Nazgul calls. River 9 villain bets half pot and Nazgul calls. Villain shows Q 9.


      In the final hand before he bust BU opened to 750, SB folded and Nazgul went all-in with 6.8k left. 99 vs AJ and villain hit an A on the turn.

      Original von elhh82
      EP raised, BU called, Nazgul 3-bet the BB, EP folded and BU called.

      6 2 8, Nazgul bets 2,400, BU calls. Turn J, Nazgul bets 5,050, BU calls. River A Nazgul checks, BU goes allin for around 30k (overbetting the pot) and Nazgul tanks for a long time before folding.

      Nazgul had A K, villain didn't show. Nazgul: "Jacks or nothing".
      After Nazgul bust, Villain said it was a bluff. But maybe he was bluffing when he said that.

      ______

      ScHnibL0r was put to another decision on the river and this time around he decided to fold it. MP3 had raised to 500, ScHnibL0r 3-bet it too 1,100, BB called and MP3 called.

      Flop 4 A 3, BB and MP3 check, ScHnibL0r bets 1,600, BB folds, MP3 makes it 3,500 and ScHnibL0r calls. Turn 2, both check, River 4, villain bets 6,000, ScHnibL0r tanks and looked like he was considering putting in a raise to put villain all-in and in the end just mucked the hand.

      He had around 30k left after the hand, but made a double up not long after this after cracking pocket aces.

      ScHnibL0r raised from UTG, MP1 3-bets it, all fold and ScHnibL0r calls.

      Flop 5 6 7. ScHnibL0r checks, villain bets 3,250, Hero makes it 8,075, villain puts enough chips to put hero all in, hero insta calls.

      Villain asks "A set?", and ScHnibL0r did indeed have one 77 vs AA. Turn
      5, River 7
