Traniello Wins Back-to-Back Hands

[user169806] • Nivå 3: 150-300, 0 ante

Marco Traniello is up to 36,000 chips after winning back-to-back hands.

The first saw him open from the hijack to 750 and only Ramzi Jelassi in the big blind called. The flop came down {6-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{a-Clubs} and both players checked. The turn was the {7-Spades} and again both players checked. The river saw the {5-Diamonds} make an appearance and when Jelassi checked, Traniello bet 1,350 and took down the pot.

The very next hand the action folded to Traniello and he raised to 750. This time only Eugene Katchalov called in the big blind. A flop reading {3-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{4-Hearts} was checked by both players but the {5-Hearts} turn saw Katchalov bet 1,300 and Traniello call. The river brought the {6-Spades} into play and Katchalov bet again, this time 2,100 only to see Traniello raise very quickly to 5,900.

Katchalov went into the tank for over two minutes before he mucked his hand..

David Williams Busts

[user169806] • Nivå 3: 150-300, 0 ante

David Williams is sat in the lobby talking to Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi and Erik Cajelais so it is safe to say the man who was short-stacked is out of the Main Event.

November Niner Holden Gets Check-Raised


World Series of Poker November Niner Sam Holden raised from the cutoff seat and was called by the player on the button. The flop came down {10-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{8-Hearts} and Holden bet 1,100. His opponent announced a raise and made it 3,000 to go. Holden gave it a little bit of thought, but then folded and relinquished the pot.

Dwan Doubles

[user169806] • Nivå 3: 150-300, 0 ante

The action folded to Tom "durrrr" Dwan in the hijack and he moved all in for 2,950 chips. Next to act was Ami Alibay and he made the call. Both blinds folded and the cards were revealed.


The {k-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} was as good a flop Dwan could have asked for and he when the {9-Clubs} and {3-Diamonds} appeared on the turn and river respectively, Dwan doubled up to around 6,300
