Event #7: €10,400 Main Event Championship

Lehavot Building, Palevic Breaking Down

One hand ago, Rifat Palevic raised to 20,000 to open the pot from early position, and Alexander Dovzhenko shoved all in for 212,000. Palevic started a little soak in the tank, and he's been taking a long while to make decisions as the night has progressed. On the other end of the table, Dermot Blain and Erik Seidel had been noticing that, and they started to quietly talk about that while Palevic was in the hand. He took offense.

With his voice growing a bit loud, Palevic furrowed his brow and said, "I can't play as fast as you. I am not internet player." After another couple seconds, he said, "Fine!" and slapped his {7-Hearts} {7-Diamonds} down on the felt. He gave Seidel and Blain a lecture for a minute, ending it with, "Please don't distract me while I am thinking!" He folded, and the next pot would not go well for him, either.

It was Amir Lehavot opening to 18,000 under the gun, and Palevic flatted to see the flop. Heads up, it came {6-Hearts} {2-Spades} {5-Clubs}, and Palevic check-called a bet of 25,000. On the {K-Diamonds} turn, Lehavot fired another 50,000, but Palevic check-raised to 146,000 this time. The call came, and Palevic fired another 125,000 after the {A-Hearts} turn. Lehavot paused to study, and he may have caught a read. Palevic hunched over and checked his cards a couple more times, let out a big sigh, and started fiddling around with his chips. A few seconds later, Lehavot stacked together his red T25,000 chips and slid out a big covering raise to put Palevic to the decision for all his chips. He still had about 320,000 left, and he tanked some more before fold-showing the {A-Spades}.

More for Moreau


From under the gun, John Duthie raised to 18,000. Chris McClung called from the cutoff before Steven Moreau reraised to 54,000 from the button. Action folded back to Duthie and he gave it some thought. In the end he mucked his hand and that opened up the door for McClung to back-raise all in. Moreau called and put himself at risk for 209,000.

Moreau: {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs}
McClung: {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs}

The board ran out {J-Spades}{10-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} and Moreau was able to double up.

Delayed C-bet from Antonius

[user68268] • Nivå 18: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Patrik Antonius raised from middle position to 16,000. Arnaud Mattern called from the cutoff seat and everyone else folded. The dealer ran out the {J-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} flop and Antonius checked. Mattern checked behind.

After the turn paired the board with the {J-Clubs}, Antonius bet 25,000. Mattern quickly folded and Antonius won the pot.

Guenegou Loses to Waxman's Trip Tens


Matt Waxman raised to 16,000 and Thibaud Guenegou called in position to take the {K-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{5-Spades} flop. Both players checked and the turn brought the {10-Clubs}. Waxman bet 25,000 and Guenegou called.

The {9-Hearts} landed on the river and Waxman bet 50,000. Guenegou called and Waxman showed him the {A-Spades}{10-Spades} for trip tens. Guenegou mucked and dropped back below 500,000.

Getzwiller Misses Big Draw and Busts


Sean Getzwiller was all in on the {9-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} flop against Max Silver, who made a big call of the shove with the {J-Hearts}{5-Clubs}. Getzwiller held the {A-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} and the 2011 World Series of Poker gold bracelet winner had to hit in order to stay alive.

The turn was the {10-Hearts} and the river the {K-Spades}. Both missed Getzwiller and he was eliminated from the tournament.

Tony G Doubles and Gets "First WSOP Penalty Ever"


Action folded to Tony G in the hijack seat and he raised to 21,000. Ilan Boujenah reraised from the button to 47,000 and play folded back to Tony G. He moved all in for 211,000 and Boujenah quickly called.

Tony G tabled the {J-Diamonds}{J-Hearts} and was flipping for his tournament life against the {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs} for Boujenah.

The flop came down {8-Spades}{6-Spades}{3-Spades} and Boujenah picked up some more outs to a spade flush. The turn was the {3-Clubs} and paired the board. The river delivered the {J-Spades} for nailed Tony G with a full house. Tony G gave out a big cheer and pumped his fist as he knew his full house was the winner and he would double up. The dealer had other things in mind though.

The dealer quickly swiped Tony G's hand, not seeing his full house and only seeing Boujenah's spade flush. Right when the dealer did this, Tony G began yelling at the dealer about incorrectly killing his hand. One of the things he said was, "How can you be so stupid?" as he was clearly upset the dealer almost cost him the pot because he was was now buried in the muck and only Boujenah's hand was on the table. Everyone else at the table made sure to pipe up and tell Tony G they all saw it and that it was fine, he'd win the hand.

The floor came over and checked in on the situation. Because of what Tony G said and his rant, he earned himself a one-hand penalty. "Make sure you write that," said Tony G," That's my first penalty of the WSOP, ever."

Corkins, Give Us a Wave

Hoyt Corkins raised to 18,000 under the gun, and Maria Ho flatted in position. Around in the big blind, Chris Moorman squeezed out {J-Hearts} {J-Clubs} and made a three-bet to what looked like 46,000. Corkins shoved, Ho folded, and Moorman made the call to put the cowboy at risk for the ~300,000 chips he had left. Corkins showed up {Q-Spades} {Q-Hearts}, though, and Moorman let out a wince upon seeing the bad news.

The {9-Clubs} {3-Diamonds} {7-Diamonds} flop was blank and clean, but the turn was a disaster for the American. The {J-Spades} was Moorman's two-out set, and Corkins could not catch back up on the {4-Clubs} river. The table offered their condolences, but that's all Corkins has left. After finishing in 15th place in this event last year, his run for revenge is over with about 40 players left.
