Jetten and Lamb Chop Up Phua’s Money


2018-07-25 18:58:17 +0900

Paul Phua moved all in from early position with a shove for around 250,000. Peter Jetten was next to act and he thought for a while before calling. Ben Lamb called as well so it was a three-way race.

"Ace-king, ace-king," Phua said pointing to Lamb and Jetten and he was right.

Peter Jetten: {Ad}{Kc}
Ben Lamb: {Ah}{Ks}
Paul Phua: {Jh}{Th}

The board ran out {7h}{7d}{8c}{6s}{8h} and Lamb and Jetten held the best hand with their ace-high and Phua was forced to commit 90,000 to the pot to be chopped and to pay an extra 72,000 on top to Lamb. After the hand Phua was left with right around 60,000 chips.

Greenwood Sends Nitsche Out


2018-07-27 14:51:15 +0900


Dominik Nitsche limped in the small blind and Luc Greenwood asked Nitche how much was his total. Nitsche quickly replied that he had 29,700 and Greenwood moved all in. Nitsche snap-called.

Nitsche: {Ks}{Qs}
Greenwood: {Qd}{Ts}

Nitsche had a dominating hand but he was no longer ahead when the {Js}{7c}{Tc} flop appeared. Greenwood caught a ten but Nitsche still had a solid equity with an open-ender and a backdoor flush draw. The rest of the board, however, bricked out and the {3d} turn and {6h} river sent Nitsche to the rail.
