Baker's Queens Drown on the River

From what we could piece together, Isaac Baron had raised preflop and gotten two callers. Baron then continuation-bet the {6-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} flop, David "ODB" Baker raised from the cutoff, Jesse Sylvia called from the button, and Baron got out of the way.

Both Baker and Sylvia checked the {5-Spades} turn as well as the {4-Hearts} river, prompting the former to roll over {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs}. Sylvia then revealed {7-Spades}{7-Hearts} for a rivered straight and the win.

Kaiser Rolls Out in 105th


Aaron Kaiser was just all in for about 475,000 and at risk with {A-Spades}{Q-Spades} against Jean Malherbe's {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}.

The flop came {J-Spades}{10-Hearts}{J-Diamonds} and Malherbe's kings were still ahead. The {3-Spades} then fell on the turn to give Kaiser a flush draw. "Oh no!" said Malherbe, who anticipating the worst went ahead and carved the necessary chips out of his stack to pay off Kaiser.

Malherbe's preparations were unneeded, however, as the river brought the {Q-Clubs}, eliminating Kaiser in 105th.

Greenberg Doubles and Leaves Chang Short

Timothy Chang
Timothy Chang

Action folded to Timothy Chang in the small blind and he raised all in, having Ben Greenberg covered by a little bit in the big blind. Greenberg called with the {K-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} and was dominating the {K-Clubs}{9-Hearts} for Chang.

The board ran out {J-Clubs}{8-Spades}{6-Spades}{5-Spades}{10-Diamonds} to give Greenberg the double up to nearly one million. Chang was knocked back to 100,000.

Moreno Riding the Pyne

Richard Pyne (Day 4) knocks out Michael Moreno
Richard Pyne (Day 4) knocks out Michael Moreno

Erik Hellman opened in late position, Michael Moreno three-bet jammed on his direct left, and Richard Pyne re-shoved from the small blind. Hellman released, and the hands were opened.

Moreno: {a-Clubs}{4-Clubs}
Pyne: {q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}

"Ace!" Moreno exclaimed as the dealer rapped the table.

The {5-Spades}{10-Clubs}{8-Hearts} flop brought backdoor flush and straight draws for Moreno, but the {j-Diamonds} on the turn crushed those dreams immediately. The {10-Spades} on the river ended his 2012 Main Event, and he was off to the cage to collect his prize money.

Pyne, who is sporting a shirt with his two kids on it, is now nearing 2 million chips.

Makhija Doubles Through Holden

Amit Makhija- Doubles Up
Amit Makhija- Doubles Up

On the very next hand, Marcel Luske raised to 65,000 from under the gun, and Sam Holden three bet to 155,000 in middle position. Action folded to Amit Makhija in the small blind, and he assembled a big four bet of 440,000, and slid it into the middle. Luske quickly got out of the way, and it was back to Holden. He tanked for about a minute before announcing all in, and Makhija snap called.

Holden: {j-Hearts}{j-Hearts}
Makhija: {a-Clubs}{a-Spades}

Makhija was way out in front, and he was looking to dodge a jack to double up. The flop brought a ton of paint, but it was safe for Makhija, coming {k-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{q-Hearts}. The {10-Clubs} on the turn gave Holden some more outs, and he was looking for an ace or a nine to score the knockout. It didn't come though, as the river was the {7-Clubs}.

Makhija doubled up to 1.549 million, while Holden plummets to 422,000.

Roh No!

We caught up to find John Roh all in for his last roughly 375,000. Roh was holding {A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts} and was racing with Yuval Bronshtein's {10-Clubs}{10-Spades}.

The board came down {4-Spades}{J-Hearts}{6-Spades}{7-Hearts}{8-Hearts} and Roh's ace-king failed to improve. Roh's Main Event has come to an end while Bronshtein's stack has increased to about 2,260,000.

Salaburu Over 6 Million


Robert Salaburu raised to 65,000 from under the gun, and Marcel Luske made the call. Action folded around to Amit Makhija in the big blind, and he also called. The flop ran down {3-Clubs}{9-Spades}{5-Clubs}, and Makhija checked to Salaburu, who fired out 30,000. Luske put out a raise to 150,000, and Makhija got out of the way. Salaburu called, and the turn brought the {A-Clubs}.

Both players checked, and the river was the {q-Spades}. Salaburu fired out 250,000, and Luske folded after about 20 seconds of thought. Salaburu showed the {3-Spades}, before collecting the pot.

Salaburu jumps to 6.07 million, while Luske drops down to 937,000.

Filippi Nails the Turn and Doubles Through Clemencon

Amnon Filippi
Amnon Filippi

From under the gun, Amnon Filippi raised to 63,000. Tristan Clemencon flatted from the cutoff seat and everyone else folded before the two players were presented with the {8-Spades}{7-Hearts}{5-Spades} flop. Filippi led with a bet of 90,000 and Clemencon raised to 231,000. Filippi called.

The turn was the {Q-Diamonds} and Filippi checked. Clemencon announced that he was all in and Filippi reacted as if he couldn't believe what he just heard before snap-calling. He tabled the {Q-Hearts}{Q-Clubs} for top set and Clemencon flew out of his chair and turned over the {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds} in disgust. Clemencon took a few moments away from the table while the cameras rolled and Filippi quietly waited to see if the river brought the case seven.

The river completed the board with the {J-Spades} and Filippi had successfully doubled up. He moved to over 2.6 million while Clemencon was knocked all the way back to just over one million.

Despite all of his poker success, that includes lifetime tournament earnings in excess of $2.8 million in live events, Filippi has only cashed in the World Series of Poker Main Event one other time. In 2007, he finished in 498th place for $27,282. He's nearing the next pay jump that will more than double that result, but with the chips he recently picked up on this double up, Filippi could very well be in for the run of his life.

Buchman Keeps Barreling

Eric Buchman
Eric Buchman

We caught up with the action on a {J-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{A-Hearts} flop, where Eric Buchman was heads-up against Marty Zabib.

Zabib checked from the hijack seat and Buchman fired 180,000 into middle. Zabib made the call to see a turn, which brought the {J-Spades}.

Zabib checked again and, undeterred, Buchman fired for 250,000. Zabib quickly folded and Buchman scooped the pot.

Buchman is up to 1,550,000, while Zabib slipped to 1.3 million.
