Brunson Still Surviving

Doyle Brunson

Early into the last level of the night and the "Godfather of Poker", Doyle Brunson is still kicking away with just shy of the starting stack. We recently caught Brunson in a hand against one opponent, with our reporter arriving to the table with a {a-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} already out on the felt. It was Brunson's opponent first to act on the turn and he bet 2,625.

When Brunson made the call, a {4-Hearts} completed the board on the river. This time Brunson's opponent bet 3,450 and Brunson responded by raising it to 14,325. Brunson's opponent thought for an extremely long time before eventually letting go of his hand and sending the win to Brunson.

As Brunson scooped up the pot, he tabled a {3-Hearts} of hearts and said something along the lines of, "Almost managed the straight flush."

Kelly's Kings


Dan Kelly opened to 800 in middle position, and David "Doc" Sands examined Kelly's stack before three-betting to 1,850 on the button. The action folded back to Kelly, who moved all in for around 13,000, and Sands made the call.


Everybody but Kelly and Sands nearly jumped out of their chairs when the flop fell {10-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}, giving both players sets. The turn and river came {8-Clubs}, {2-Clubs} respectively, and Kelly doubled to over 27,000.

Sands slipped to 21,500.

Mizzi Gets There

We don't know exactly how the action went before the flop, but we do know some significant raising took place between Sorel Mizzi and a player in late position. With around 6,000 in the pot before the flop, Mizzi's opponent was left with around 7,500. The dealer fanned the {10-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} flop and Mizzi pushed forward a bet that would put his opponent all in. The late position player quickly called and cards were tabled.

Mizzi: {A-}{k-}
Opponent: {9-}{9-}

The turn brought the {Q-Clubs} giving Mizzi a straight draw along with his pair draw. The {j-Hearts} on the river indeed gave Mizzi the straight and his opponent was sent packing. Mizzi now sits around 75,000 in chips.

Schwartz Mucks

We caught up with the action on a {3-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{7-Hearts} board, where Luke Schwartz was in a pot with one other opponent.

Schwartz checked from early position and his opponent bet 6,000 on the button. Schwartz called.

The {2-Clubs} completed the board and Schwartz checked once more. His opponent shrugged and said, "Ten."

"King-ten," Schwartz replied (in reference to his own hand).

His opponent then tabled {A-Clubs}{10-Clubs} for a pair of tens, ace kicker and Schwartz threw his hand upward into the muck.

Schwartz is down to 20,000.

Humberto Brenes - Eliminated

Humberto Brenes' seat is empty, and according to his former tablemates, he busted with {a-}{k-} against the {a-}{a-} of Keanu Tabali. Four bets went in preflop, the rest of the money went in on a flop of {k-}{5-}{5-}, and Brenes, despite turing a flush draw, couldn't catch up.

Uresti III One Step Closer


Lawrence Uresti III and Jillian Singerman started at the same table and had a little extra incentive seeing each other across the table. Both are competing in the Onnit Labs Last Sticker Standing Contest, where the last player standing will pocket a cool $5,000.

Singerman recently busted, but Uresti III has had a tumultuous, yet solid day. He was off to a great start with more than 70,000, then found himself back to about the starting stack. He has since moved back to about the 70,000-chip mark, but we just recently watched him take a minor hit.

Picking up the action on an {8-Spades}{5-Clubs}{2-Spades} flop, Uresti III was faced with a bet of 1,150 from an opponent. He called to see the {6-Diamonds} turn where his opponent bet again, this time for 2,300. Another call from Uresti III landed the {9-Clubs} river. Both players quickly checked and Uresti III tabled {K-Spades}{4-Spades} for a missed flush draw.

His opponent tabled {10-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} to take down the pot, but Uresti III still has more than double his starting stack, currently sitting with about 62,000.
