Break Time

• Tase 18: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

Hand-for-hand play has now lasted an hour. The tournament officials have opted to send the players on a 15-minute break, and the level will go up when they return and continue to do so every subsequent hour.

Katchalov Tanks For Good While

• Tase 18: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

David ODB Baker and Eugene Katchalov built a big pot on a board of {9-Hearts} {J-Diamonds} {7-Hearts} {10-Spades} {6-Hearts}. Katchalov bet 36,000 on the river and Baker raised to 80,000.

Katchalov was in a shove or fold situation and tanked for several minutes. He eventually gave his cards up and showed {K-} {Q-} for a straight. Baker flashed {A-Hearts} {K-Hearts} for the nut flush.

Kessler Shoves

• Tase 18: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

Action folded around to Allen Kessler in the small blind and he moved all in for roughly 120,000. Brian Rast was in the big blind, but he didn't like what he saw and folded his hand. Kessler then showed {A-}{Q-} and the bubble continues.

Binger's Tank

• Tase 18: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

Hao Le, Nick Binger, and David ODB Baker all went to a flop together. The cards came {9-Clubs} {J-Clubs} {4-Diamonds}, Le checked, Binger bet 15,500 and Baker called. Le folded and the turn came {Q-Spades}. Baker and Binger checked and the river came {Q-Hearts}.

Binger checked, Baker bet 54,000 and Binger went deep into the tank. Several long minutes ticked off the clock while Binger was making his decision. He eventually folded and play moved on.

Short Stack Doubles

Action folded to Yung Hwang on the button and he raised to 10,000. A short-stacked Jonathan Sorscher then moved all in from the small blind for 60,000, which Hwang called after the big blind folded.



The ESPN cameras swarmed the table and the railbirds leaned in close; meanwhile, Sorscher had his eyes closed and declined to watch as the dealer ran out {3-Spades}{8-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{Q-Spades}. Sorscher's pair held and he doubled on the bubble.
