All in Action:
Damon Fine, the satellite king, opens in the cut off with A♣10♠
Imran Bhojani 3bets from the SB, Damon puts the balance of his chips in the middle.
Imran tables A♦3♠ and is behind
The board: 7♦3♣6♦ J♣ 5♥
This sends Damon to the rail for the night and Imran building up a formidable stack!
Damon will be back to give the Main Event another shot though
Some Chip updates in the Main Event:
Vaughan Thomson – 80 000
Jason Dominguez – 76 600
Muaaz Gani has also doubled up in the Main event, for those who don’t know, Muaaz is a short priced favorite to win this years Main Event.
We jump into the action on the turn, where we have an all in between Alvin Brooks and arguably the nicest player at The Sunbet Poker Series, Doc Eben Lottering
The board: 7♥Q♦9♦ 10♠
Alvin shows 9♥9♠
Doc shows Q♣10♣ needing some help on the river
Unfortunately for Doc it doesn’t come this time and runs out with the 6♦
Alvin scoops in a healthy pot
Blinds: 200/400 – 400 BB ante
We have an all in pre flop,
Mariette Language turns over A♣K♣
Agie Samodien shows A♥Q♠ and is up against the wall,
No help to Agie
This gives Agie some extra chop outs,
River: 3♥ bringing in one of the chop cards
Mariette unfortunately has to split the pot after being ahead the whole way
With players heading off to their first break of the day, here are some notable chip stack in the field:
Carel Snyman – 52 300
Lauren Piha – 62 300
Armandt Olivier – 37 300
Michael Clacher, our very own WSOP bracelet winner has informed me that he was close to getting above starting stack, but he is at a table full of sharks that keep picking off his bluffs.
More hand updates will follow later
