We missed the preliminary betting but caught up on a hand involving David Bach and Paolo Compagno.
Bach: (X)(X) - - (X)
Compagno: (X)(X) - - (X)
Compagno fired bets of 24,000 on fifth and sixth streets and Bach called both times. On seventh street, Compagno bet 24,000 more and Bach looked him up, showing down the for two pair, nines and threes. Bach was beaten, however, by Compagno's in the hole, which made a full house.
This hand crippled David Bach and left him with only 25,000 chips to attempt a comeback. Compagno built his stack to 330,000 with the victory.
We caught the action before the flop as Ron Ware raised to 20,000 and Denis Ethier three-bet to 30,000. Ware made the call and the flop fell . Ethier checked and Ware fired a bet of 10,000, which Ethier called. The turn fell the and both players checked it.
Ethier bet 20,000 and Ware raised it, making it 40,000 to go. This was enough to force the fold and Ware chipped up to 505,000 on the hand, while Etheir slumped to around 270,000 or so in chips.
