Nicolas Levi Busts One
John Tabatai raised to 1,500 preflop and Nicolas Levi made the call behind him. Jomer Meelis reraised to 5,200 and Tabatai mucked. Levi bet 30,000 and Meelis made the all-in call. Their cards:
Levi: A Q
Meelis: A A
Board: 10 2 5 A K
Levi made a flush and Meelis was eliminated from the tournament in spite of his three aces.
Tilly in The Tank
Chris Moorman bets 1,600 from the cut-off and Hoyt Corkins raises it to 4,300 from the small blind. Jennifer Tilly pops it to 15,000 and Moorman folds. Corkins thinks for a few moments and elects to call. The flop comes 7s 7d 6d and Corkins checks. Tilly bets 25,000 and Corkins makes it 50,000. Tilly stands to see what he has left. He has roughly 60,000 in chips behind, while Tilly has a little under 70,000. Tilly goes into the tank for six minutes, repeatedly standing up to see all the chips and sitting back down, trying to make her decision. Eventually she mucks and says, â€œShow the bluff. I had to go all in or fold.â€
Shortly after this Tilly took a hit from Jim Collopy. It wasnâ€™t as damaging but after starting the day in the top 20, she now has 55,000 in front of her. Collopy has 50,000. But the clear chip leader of that table is Corkins who has 169,000 going into the first break of the day.
Brynn Kenney Almost Triples Up
Bryn Kenney moved all in for 18,575 on a A A 6 5 board after one player bet 10,000 and Faraz Jaka had made the call ahead of him. The original player to act mucked and Jaka made the call. Kenney flipped over A K, which held to win the hand and grow his stack to 75,000.
Roland de Wolfe Getting Low
Ludovic Lacay moved all in 16,300 with flop of 7 3 3 sitting on the table and Roland de Wolfe went into the tank for five minutes before he made the call. Their cards:
De Wolfe: K 7
Lacay: J J
Turn and River: 4 and A
Lacay doubled up to 50,000 after the hand while De Wolfe held 26,000.
