Level 9: Blinds 400/800/800 BB Ante
A quick stroll through the TTA (that’s Temporary Tournament Area to you noobs) reveals much multiway action.
In one interesting spot on 17 which seems standard for the BPO, the CO limped, BU called, the BB completed with , looking mischievous, then dark checked.
On the jack high board, the CO then led, only to be raised by the BU. and the BB folded, but the CO had hard time making sense of it.
When CO finally gave up, he was flashed a jack, but did not appear impressed by this card.
Meanwhile, an underrated table is 23, featuring Sunny Devore, Men Nguyen, the always active A.S, and Harry Weingord of the earlier set of deuces.
A.S., all in, first doubled with from the cut against on .
A.S. gave a little back with against . He led 2,000 into the six-way, 12,000 pot. The Master found a fold on the turn, however, after Harry Weingord value bet 5500, but A.S. kept him honest on the ace high board.
Nearby, as the action closed and break began, Welther Marmol, on his birthday no less, got a turn shove through two opponents to stay alive. The first one double checked with the floor if he could still rebuy before deciding – that must have have made Welther nervous!
On the , a lot of draws were available to Marmol, but he pulled it off. He’s healthy with 60,000.
