Rando Runs Into Bozdogan’s Cowboys

Level 13: 2,000/4,000 (4,000)
Entries: 67/252

Ali Bozdogan had his stack of 100,000 already committed from the small blind when Paolo Rando called off his stack from the hijack. Dean Laybourne, who had a bet already in front of him from the button went into the tank for a few minutes before apologizing to the table. Eventually, Laybourne opted to fold.

Paolo Rando: 1010
Ali Bozdogan: KK

Kings were good against tens the entire way after the A99102 ran out on the board.

“Did you have an ace?” Bozdogan asked Laybourne.

“I had ace-queen,” shared Laybourne.

“It a tough spot but you had to fold,” said Chris Read, who was also at the table to Laybourne.

Ali Bozdogan – 225,000
Paolo Rando – 0

The Price Was Right for Ganglbauer

Level 12: 2,000/3,000 (3,000)
Entries: 89/252

Markus Ganglbauer opened the button for 8,000 before Kieran Price three-bet jammed for less than 30,000 from the small blind. Ganglbauer snap-called and the cards were turned over.

Keiran Price: A5
Markus Ganglbauer: K10

Price was ahead after the 727 flop and his chances increased to double his stack after the blank 3 turn. The K river changed Price’s fortunes and he hit the rail near the end of Level 12 instead of doubling his stack.

Markus Ganglbauer – 200,000
Keiran Price – 0

Did the Four of Diamonds Help Burke?

Level 12: 2,000/3,000 (3,000)
Entries: 89/252

There was around 35,000 in the pot with the A95 on the board after the flop when a raising war took place between Giovanni Palella and Richard Burke.

Palella check-raised Nobel’s 10,000 bet to 35,000. Burke went into the tank for about two minutes before he jammed for 80,000. Palella paused for a few moments before he folded.

Burke looked back down at his cards and opted to show the 4. If he had another diamond, he had a flush draw. Otherwise, this card represented complete air. Either way, Burke earned the pot and chipped up during the penultimate level of Day 1d.

Giovanni Palella – 170,000
Richard Burke – 150,000

Final Break

Players are on their final break of Day 1d. Blinds will increase to 2,000/3,000 with a 3,000 big blind ante before progressing to 2,000/4,000 with a 4,000 big blind ante. The surviving players will bag up their chips after these two blind levels.

Kwiatkowski Wins a Flip Against Babatie

Level 11: 1,500/2,500 (2,500)
Entries: 114/252

Hendrik Kwiatkowski three-bet jammed for 36,000 and was called by Andrei Babatie.

Hendrik Kwiatkowski: 66
Andrei Babatie: KQ

Kwiatkowski was ahead on the 747 flop and had Babatie drawing dead on the 6 turn.

Babatie began to push his stack forward to Kwiatkowski.

“Wait,” said the dealer before dealing the 3 river. “Flush,” the dealer said.

Several players had a laugh with the dealer as it was late in the day and easy to miss that the board paired for anyone looking at it quickly. The dealer quickly realized that Kwiatkowski did indeed double and a big smile grew on his face as a result.

Andrei Babatie – 110,000
Hendrik Kwiatkowski – 80,000

Bouwmans Ousts Dufouleur

Level 11: 1,500/2,500 (2,500)
Entries: 117/252

Henricus Bouwmans opened the button for 8,000 before Lois Dufouleur jammed his stack of 47,000 from the small blind. Bouwmans asked for a count and called shortly after the amount was confirmed.

Lois Dufouleur: Q10
Henricus Bouwmans: KJ

The low 84325 board didn’t connect with either player. Bouwmans was awarded the pot with his king-high and Dufouleur will have to try again during one of the other three opening flights for a chance to find his way into Day 2.

Henricus Bouwmans – 180,000
Lois Dufouleur – 0
