  • Sara Chafak marching on by : October 31, 2015

    Sara Chafak has been her usual quiet steady self and seems to come alive are just the right time. This time Eben Lottering shoved his short stack and Sara moved in over the top sending Jarred Solomon into the tank. Solomon let go of his 88 and Sara showed KK to Eben’s AQ. Eben went home and Sara has an average stack. Her only mistake in retrospect was not just calling Eben’s raise. She would have taken a chunk off Jarred ...

  • Insanity – the final chapter by : October 31, 2015

    Ring Chen was the happy recipient of 100k in chips from Peter de Necker. In exactly the same methedology as before, the action went  raise reraise reraise all in for what was ultimately a 200k pot. Rong Chen tabled AA (shocker) and Peter Q 7 off suit (shocker). This will be the last time de Necker is mentioned in the Main Event.Norman Keyser falls to Ben Cade. A 10 vs 55. Two tens on the flop for Cade. ...

  • Rags beat Hags by : October 31, 2015

    Ilija Martinovic and Hennie Appel tangled all the way to the river. Ilija scooped the pot with 6 2 off after out-flopping Hennie’s QQ. With a self-congratulatory salute and a very manly grabbing of his own biceps he cries “I love 6 2. Its my favorite hand” and scoops the chips….Chris Demaci falls to Chris Tucker. Demaci’s last stand came with 44 vs Ac Jd. The board paired with 10x 10c Qc adding Queens and Kings to Tucker’s outs. The turn low club, added the ...

  • Ladies no good for Xuan Liu by : October 31, 2015

    In what turned into a very good pot for defending champion Dylan Wilkerson, Xuan Liu was eliminated with pocket queens against Yu’s pocket Aces and eventual winner Wilkerson’s 10 8 off suit. Liu was all in on the flop and was called by Yu and Wilkerson. Dylan had hit the 8 and was delighted with the turn 10 when all the money went in. The river missed all of Yu’s and Liu’s outs and Wilkerson is looking good to run ...

  • Insanity – part deux by : October 31, 2015

    Edgar Antezana is probably still in shock after once again Peter de Necker made a crazy all in play. When I arrived at the table the laughter and the incredulity was rampant. I looked at the flop and saw 7 8 9 10 J rainbow. Edgar’s hand was AA and Peter’s 2 4 suited in clubs. Apparently all the money was in pre-flop! Split pot so loon out for part three a bit later… ...
