$400+$50 Almighty Stack NLH Re-Entry
Level 15: Blinds 3000/6000/6000 BB Ante
Players Remaining: 290
Average chips: 205,000
Midway through level 14, Jeff Gross found himself bluffcatching against a substantial river bet as the original raiser – 85,000 on a queen high very dry board against Chris Serafin.
The bet was for half his remaining stack and might decide the fate of this flight for Jeff. He found a call, not believing Chris could have a random three that paired on the river. Unfortunately he was shown one of the few value hands that made sense for top two.
Gross drops below strarting while Serafin shoots to over 300,000.
The next hand, now on the cut-off, Joseph opened to 10,000, but was met with a jam for 100,500 by Yingxin Chen. Dan Heimiller and Gross folded in the blinds, and the decision was left solely to Chris. He tried to to elicit some information from Chen, but the dealer kept him to the strict sense of the rules. Serafin folded, and later claimed he had just diamonds and was considering puting a beat on a stronger hand – Chen claimed .
Next, Yvonne Burch limped in from the field, and Serafin got out of the way. Heimiller raised to 20,000 to isolate, but it ended up being more than he could handle. After the blinds folded, Yvonee jammed the rest of her starting stack.
The move caught Dan unprepared, and he folded quietly after some thought.
Then, big action. Serafin, clearly looking to run over the table, opened a little larger, 10,500, picked up Chen behind, and Gross jammed his remaining 90,000 in the center. Chris immediately rejammed, shutting out a disappointed Chen.
However, it had been purely for isolation – Chris held only , which was behind Jeff’s slightly. A ten fell, and Gross was out.
Serafin rises over 400,000 – in sight of the chip leaders. Two levels remain in this flight – time to think about bagging.
