We picked up the action between Travis Pearson and Kevin Chance just after the first draw; Chance check-called Pearson's bet, then Pearson stood pat and Chance drew one before check-calling Pearson again. Chance took one more card and checked, but Pearson bet all-in for about 25,000.
Pearson called, showing down the () for A-B-C, but was crippled to just 25,000 when Pearson showed down a badugi of . Then in the very next hand, Chance got it all-in after Kendall Fukumoto raised from early position.
Fukumoto patted all the way while Chance drew one per draw to end up with an badugi to trump Fukumoto's badugi and double up.
During the last 12 hands (six each of Razz and Limit Hold'em), we only saw one flop. True story.
With no hands getting anywhere near fourth street in Razz, the game switched to Limit Hold'em, then in the fifth hand of that discipline, the action folded to Brian Haveson who raised from the small blind. Travis Pearson called from the big blind, but then folded after Haveson led out on the flop of . How excitement!
The action's coming quick, so we'll give you the short version of this one.
Travis Pearson was all in with split sixes, and Shaun Deeb's split tens had him in a world of trouble. Pearson had a gutshot draw on sixth. He missed, but he did pick up a third six to take the lead with trips. Deeb needed a ten. He peeked, quickly mucked, and Pearson has found the first double back to about 150,000.
On fourth street, D'Agostino led out with the bet, and both opponents called. Deeb picked up an open pair on fifth, and he checked. D'Agostino bet all in for 15,000, and Hall completed the bet to 50,000. Deeb spent a long while in the tank, fighting with the decision before he finally, and reluctantly, released. D'Agostino was at-risk and heads-up.
Hall: () / / (x)
D'Agostino: () / / (x)
A few of the railbird pros near us began muttering about the isolation, but Hall was drawing live for the scoop. D'Agostino pulled the on seventh street to make two pair, and Hall's blank means he has to settle for half the pot.
Deeb was a bit frustrated with the way that hand played out.
On fourth street, Fukumoto and Haveson checked, and Pearson bet all in for his last, lonely 4,000 chips. Fukumoto tried to complete it to 25,000, but the rules prohibit a check-raise in that spot. It was a call, and Haveson flicked the 4,000 into the pot as well. Pearson was at risk.
On fifth, both live players checked, and Fukumoto bet on sixth street. Haveson called, and they both checked again through seventh street.
Haveson showed for a decent low, and Pearson tabled for aces up. Fukumoto was working with / , drawing live to scoop. He pulled a blank , though, and Haveson and Pearson chop it up.
