Blind Versus Blind Action

• Niveau 20

Limit Hold'em

It was Dennis Witol in the small blind that first offered Darren Kennedy the opportunity to fold before he looked at his cards. It was an opportunity that Kennedy passed on, which prompted Witol to call and Kennedy checked.

The dealer spread the flop of {6-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs} and Witol led out and Kennedy called.

The turn brought the {4-Spades} and Witol bet out again. This sent Kennedy into the tank and he eventually opted to fold his {9-Clubs}{9-Spades} face up. That got Witol to flash the {a-Clubs} with a smile as he returned his winning hand to the dealer.

Limit Hold'em

With the board showing {7-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{4-Spades}{j-Diamonds}, Sachin Bhargava put out a bet and had opponent Dennis Witol talking.

"I have no idea how to play Limit Hold'em. Can I phone a friend," he jokingly asked the dealer.

Witol eventually made the call, and Bhargava turned over {10-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} for a turned two pair. "Who are you? How do you have my number all day?," Witol said as he handed over the pot.

Saechao Eliminates Esposito

• Niveau 20

Stud Hi-Lo

John Esposito: {j-Clubs}{10-Spades}/{j-Spades}{9-Hearts}{a-Spades}{q-Hearts}/{6-Spades}
Kao Chieng Saechao: {k-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}/{2-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{a-Clubs}{4-Hearts}/{k-Clubs}

It was Saechao that fired a bet out on sixth street and Esposito made the call for less and was all-in. The dealer pitched seventh street face down and the at-risk player Esposito needed help as his jacks were behind the kings of Saechao. The final card proved to be of no help to Esposito, and it was the trip kings of Saechao that took down the pot and eliminated Esposito.
