No Chiplead for Pollak, Guenan Rises to the Top

[user20283]

There's a thin line between begin chipleader or just one of the players. Guenan Flavien wasn't on our watch the entire day but due to the second to last hand of the day he emerged as our day one chipleader. In a huge pot between Flavien and Speranza he managed to double up to a massive 108,800 and we've got the details.

The board read {J-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{2-Spades} when Flavien checked to Speranza who bet 3,800. Flavien made the quick call and the {9-Spades} appeared on the turn. Flavien checked again and just like on the flop Speranza decided to bet. This time the bet was 9,500 but that didn't scare Flavien who called once again.

The river was the {K-Spades} and for the third time Flavien checked to Speranza who looked over at his opponents stack and decided to put him all-in. Flavien had 37,500 chips left behind which was still more than the average stack but within second he made the call. Speranza flashed {Q-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} and mucked when Flavien Guenan turned over his {A-Hearts}{J-Hearts} and raked in this massive pot.

Benjamin Pollak Grabs The Chip Lead At The Death

Benjamin Pollak
Benjamin Pollak

Benjamin Pollak is no stranger to being an end of day chip leader and he seems to have done it again after eliminating fellow countryman Nicolas Levi.

Levi started the action with a raise and Pollak called on the button with {Q-Spades} {J-Spades}. The flop was {Q-} {J-Spades} {4-Spades} and both players checked. The turn was the {7-Clubs} and once again both players checked. The final card was the {A-Spades} and Levi checked, Pollak bet 3,000, Levi check-raised to 10,000, Pollak moved all-in and Levi called.

Pollak turned over {Q-Spades} {J-Spades} and we do not know the Levi hand.

Casey Kastle Closing in on the Chipleader

[user20283]

We picked up the action from the turn and saw {A-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} on the board. Kastle bet 4,650 and his opponent, in the seat to his left, called. The river was the {3-Diamonds} and Kastle grabbed chips quickly and threw out a bet of 9,775. Tapio Vihakas folded quickly and got to see the {4-Hearts}{7-Hearts} Kastle was bluffing with. Both players are in good shape but Kastle is the front runner with a stack close to that of chipleader Alessandro Speranza.

Carlos Mortensen Leaves The Building

We joined the action on a flop of {9-Clubs} {3-Hearts} {2-Spades} and with 2,000 in the pot. David Peters checked from under the gun and Carlos Mortensen bet 1,700 from his short stack and Peters called. The turn was {5-Spades} and once again Peters checked and this time Mortensen moved all-in and Peters called quicker than Carl Lewis used to run the 100 metres.
