Greenstein Moving Back Up

Barry Greenstein
Barry Greenstein

Barry Greenstein seems to have been knocked down a little since the last time we saw him. When we caught up with him a few minutes ago we found him battling it out with a big blind player from middle position. We don't know exactly how the action went on the {5-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds} flop, but we know one of the players bet, and the other called.

The {J-Spades} on the turn saw the big blind check, and Greenstein fire out for 3,000. The big blind made the call and was allowed to see the river. After the {6-Diamonds} was fanned for the river the big blind checked again, and Greenstein placed a bet of 7,000.

After some inner debating the big blind made the call. Greenstein exposed {A-}{A-} for a pair of aces and the big blind flashed {K-Spades}{Q-Clubs} for a weaker pair of queens. Greenstein now sits around 50,000 in chips.

Barry Greenstein us 48,000 -7,250

Childs Chips Up

A player in middle position opened for 1,100 and action folded over to Lee Childs on the button, who clicked it back to 1,800. Everyone else folded back to the original raiser, who flung in a call.

The flop came {3-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} and Lee's opponent checked, prompting a 2,150 bet from him. His opponent quickly folded and Lee scooped the pot.

Childs is sitting on 65,000 at the moment.

Orange Section Breaking

[user145752] • Tase 5: 200-400, 50 ante

They just finished breaking up the Tan section of the Amazon room, and now they have moved onto the Orange section. They just broke Table #367, and they will break in ascending order from here. We are losing players fast and furiously in this last level!

ElkY Getting Low

We came upon Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier heads up in a pot with an opponent. The flop came down {4-Clubs}{5-Spades}{7-Diamonds} and Grospellier's opponent bet 2,300.

Grospellier called and the turn paired the board with the {4-Hearts}. This time Grospellier was facing a bet of 4,200. Grospellier shook his head and a look of misery wasted across his face.

ElkY has had trouble getting anything going today and his stack is looking meek at about 7,800.

Cordero Pays One Off


Alex Cordero is here, just a day removed from his third-place finish in Event 59: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em last night. Cordero was the end-of-day chip leader for the first two days of that event before Dominik Nitsche eventually passed him and everyone else to take the bracelet.

Cordero is doing what he can today to try to build a stack, though finds himself just a bit below the 30,000 with which he started as we move through the last level of the night.

Just now Cordero was involved in a hand with an opponent in which the pair had reached the turn with the board showing {4-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}. Cordero's opponent, playing out of the blinds, fired a bet of 3,300 (about two-thirds the pot), and Cordero called.

The river was the {K-Spades} and again Cordero's opponent was betting, this time tossing out a single orange (5,000) chip. Cordero plucked a matching chip off of his stack and set it forward to call, then nodded in acknowledgement when his opponent turned over {10-Clubs}{9-Clubs} for a flush.

Set For Lee

Action folded around to Bernard Lee's small blind and he raised to 1,125. The big blind opted to three-bet, however, making it 3,300 to go. Lee called and the two saw a flop of {J-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}.

Lee checked to the raiser and his opponent bet 4,400. Lee decided to throw out a check-raise, making it 10,975 to go and his opponent went into the tank. Eventually his opponent decided to call the bet and the {3-Clubs} fell on the turn.

Lee moved all in on the turn which would put his opponent's tournament life at risk for his last 30,000. His opponent folded and Lee showed {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs} for a flopped set of sevens. Lee is currently sitting on 95,400 in chips.

Lenaghan Scores a Double Through Farha

Action folded around to Sam Farha's button and he raised it up to 1,200. Ryan Lenaghan three-bet to 3,200 from the small blind and the big blind got out of the way.

Farha wasted no time four-betting to 8,200 and Lenaghan quickly five-bet the rest of his stack. Farha wasted no time calling and the hands were tabled to find Lenaghan dominated.

Lenaghan: {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}
Farha: {Q-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}

The flop came safe for Farha with {2-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{9-Spades} but the {A-Diamonds} on the turn flipped everything around. Farha let out a sigh under his breath at this card and the board was quickly finished with the {8-Hearts}.

Farha was forced to ship a double up to the seat next to him and this hit knocked him down to about 80,000 in chips.
