(Remember, I've taken the “,000” off of the numbers, because
there is no point in typing the chip inflation.)
Too tired to keep up. Can barely watch. Enjoy the rest.
Cunningham is in all-in mode; he's just come over the top of Wasicka.
Three way flop between Gold, Wasicka, and Cunningham. They check through
J-A-9 (all hearts), and A comes on the turn. Gold takes a while
and checks, and Wasicka grabs some chips and bets a third of the
pot. Alan makes it 3,000 to go, and Wasicka moves in. Alan
tosses what I think was a small flush, and showed Alan nut-no-pair
with no heart draw. Alan says he had TT with T; I don't believe it.
Wasicka is reraising again; this time Gold and he got Gold to throw it.
Wasicka is the preflop reraising expert at this table, it seems.
Cunningham and Gold take a flop. Gold checks in the dark, and then check
raises on A-J-2. Cunningham moved in, and Gold folded after
goofing. I think Cunningham had at worst AQ and Gold had a bad
Gold's reraising takes another pot.
Another reraise by Wasicka. He's pushing hard preflop!
Cunningham raised, Gold called, and now Butler moved in, but he doesn't
have enough anymore. Cunningham and Gold will probably call and
check it down. Instead, Gold bets top pair on the turn, and busts
Butler. Everyone gets $400,000 more.
Cunningham is leading at every flop he sees and they are folding to him.
Cunningham's stack isn't that big, but he's really chopping to get
his stack up there.
Gold is back. Butler just pushed again. Cunningham has a decision. It
was probably a weak A, and he folded. Butler probably had AK.
Cunningham reraised Butler all-in preflop and Butler folded and Cunningham
showed but we couldn't see it. Meanwhile, Gold is not there
anymore; he's off naping or something...
Binger is really giving a good push. He just reraised an obviously weak
Wasicka. Maybe he had it, but regardless, he's transitioning into
more aggressive play now that he has chips, and that's very good
given how passive he was earlier.
Cunningham is really trying to bully the table and it is not
working. He's getting pushed around on most flops he tries to
make continuation bets. He probably should have shifted gears
like 10-20 hands ago.
Wasicka made it 1,000 and Binger quickly moved all-in. Binger must have a
hand, because Wasicka has been playing so tight. It's 5,700 more
to Wasicka; seems strange if he'd fold, but he really wants to
outlive Binger and Butler. Wow, I had that wrong, Wasicka made a
bad call. Binger has K K and Wasicka has K Q. Board of 3-7-Q-A-2 and Binger
has doubled up. All of Wasicka's good play and his lucky KT for
Binger just moved all in on a 7-3-2 rainbow flop with Cunningham pushing
the action, and Cunningham gave it up.
