Break Time

Shamus • Tase 15: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

Players are now on a 20-minute break. The big board is showing 146 of them are still with us.

Cody's Stack Halved

• Tase 15: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

Jake Cody had another player all-in for about on a {8-Clubs}{K-Spades}{5-Clubs} flop with about 130,000 in the middle. Cody held the {Q-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds} and his opponent the {A-Spades}{K-Hearts}. The {9-Hearts} turn and {2-Hearts} river failed to improve Cody's hand and his opponent doubled through him.

Cody is back down to 120,000.

Dozier Done


Deanna Dozier has been eliminated right before the end of Level 16. She'd slipped to around 30,000 a short while ago, with the end coming thusly...

Slaubaugh Climbing the Leader Board

Cody Slaubaugh has managed to have a great afternoon, now sitting behind one of the largest stacks in the room. We recently caught Slaubaugh in a hand against one opponent, catching the action from the turn of a {3-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} board. Slaubaugh's opponent bet 9,600 here and Slaubaugh called.

Both players then checked the {6-Hearts} river, at which point Slaubaugh's opponent said, "king-high." Slaubaugh then tabled his {a-Spades}{j-Diamonds}, with his ace-high enough to rake in the pot and add even more chips to his giant stack.

Cordero Scoops Massive Pot

We caught up with the action on a completed board reading {J-Hearts}{6-Spades}{10-Spades}{8-Clubs}{2-Clubs} with over 50,000 in the pot already. Alex Cordero was in the small blind against one other player in early position. Cordero had already moved all in for 111,000 and his opponent fell hard into the tank.

After a few minutes, Cordero's opponent announced, "Call," to put himself at risk. Cordero tabled {Q-Clubs}{9-Clubs} for the nut straight. His opponent stood stunned at what he saw and squeezed his hand into a fist - crushing his cards. When he let go, two crumpled kings lay in front of him for an overpair.

Cordero scooped the enormous pot and is now up to approximately 320,000.

Juste Collects from Collopy


Jim "MrBigQueso" Collopy opened for 4,800 from middle position, then Mario Sanchez Juste reraised to 10,000 from late position and Collopy called. The flop came {Q-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{K-Clubs} and Collopy checked. Juste bet 12,000, and Collopy called. The turn then brought the {5-Diamonds}. Collopy checked once more, and this time Juste pushed all in for 50,900 and Collopy instantly called.

Collopy had {2-Spades}{2-Hearts} for a set of deuces while Juste tabled {Q-Clubs}{J-Clubs} for queens and a flush draw. The river came the {8-Clubs}, completing Juste's flush and giving him survival and a large pot.

Meanwhile, Collopy was down to about 25,000, and soon was in shove-mode and saw his Event 59 run end not long after.

Brenes Bounds Home

Something over on Table 433 stole our attention just a few moments ago and that something was Humbertro Brenes. We knew Brenes must have been all in, simply because he was out of his chair and shouting as such. When we arrived at the table, Brenes' tiny chip stack was out in the middle of the felt and so too was his {k-}{5-}. Matthew Schultz's cards were also tabled, with Brenes coming up against {9-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}. The {q-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{3-Clubs}{9-Hearts} board was not friendly to Brenes, sending his chips to Schultz and heading to the rail.

Cody Continues to Dominate

Jake Cody

Jake Cody has chipped up in a big way since returning from dinner.

In a recent hand, the player on the button opened fro 5,000 and Cody flatted from the big blind.

Both players checked the {Q-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{K-Spades} flop, however, when Cody checked again the {6-Spades} turn, his opponent fired 6,000 into the middle. Cody paused and flung out three orange $5,000 denomination chips for a raise to 15,000 total. Cody's opponent tanked a bit and then announced he was all in for approximately 30,000 on top. Cody snap-called and hands were revealed.

Cody: {K-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} for top two pair.
Button: {K-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} for top pair.

Cody had his opponent drawing dead. A meaningless {3-Hearts} was too little too late for Cody's opponent and he was sent to the rail.

Cody is up to 190,000.
