Levy Sent Packing


It wasn't a good day for Australian Poker Pro Grant Levy. He came into today with 67,000 in chips, but he wasn't able to get anything going. We caught his last hand of the day, where he shoved his last 11,200 in preflop with {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}. Unfortunately, he ran into another player's {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}. The board ran down {j-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{q-Hearts}, and Levy was sent to the rail.

Timex Busts "Patient" Opponent


Mike "Timex" McDonald led out for 16,600 on a board of {j-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{2-Spades}. His opponent moved all in for 59,400, then gave a little speech. We couldn't hear it clearly, but McDonald responded by saying, "You've been pretty patient."

McDonald screwed up his face, and tanked for the better part of two minutes. He eventually grabbed enough orange T5,000 chips to make the call, and committed them.

"Set of sixes?" McDonald asked, tabling {a-Hearts}{j-Clubs}.

His opponent sighed, then turned over two red eights. The {6-Hearts} completed the board, and the player was eliminated.

"I thought he had sixes," a player at the table announced after the hand.

"I too thought he had sixes," said another.

The entire table burst into laughter, but no one was happier than McDonald, who now has over 200,000 chips.

Baker Shoves


From under the gun, a player raised to 2,500. David "ODB" Baker reraised to 5,300 from the cutoff seat and the original raiser called to see the {J-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{8-Spades} flop. The first player checked and Baker bet 4,200. His opponent check-raised to 10,000 and then Baker moved all in for a little over 40,000. His opponent folded and Baker won the pot.

Margets Making Moves


We caught up with the action on a board that read {8-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{4-Hearts}{8-Spades}. There was already about 35,000 in the middle, when Margets checked to her lone opponent. He fired out 13,300, and after about a minute in the tank, Margets moved all in for alittle under 40,000 total. Her opponent immediately folded, and Margets showed {a-}{k-} for ace high. She cracked a smile after tabling her hand, and Ali Eslami simply commented "big pot".

After that hand, Margets is up to 88,000.

The turn was the {j-Spades}, and the player led out again. Eastgate moved all in for 35,000, and his opponent called.

Eric Baldwin
Eric Baldwin

The flop read {10-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{Q-Clubs} and Eric Baldwin was heads up in middle position against an unknown opponent in the small blind. The small blind was first to act and he patted the felt for a check. Baldwin on the other hand bet, and made it 3,400. The small blind then raised and made it 7,500. Baldwin sat completely still and thought for a good 30 seconds before making the call.

The {k-Hearts} on the turn saw the little blind tank for a little bit then check. Action then moved to the again motionless Baldwin and after another 30 seconds or so he grabbed a handful of chips and neatly placed a bet of 11,000. A minute or two went by of the small blind thinking before he eventually threw his cards away.
