Hastings on the Ropes

Brian Hastings

Brian Hastings opened to 13,000, and Michael Mizrachi defended. The dealer spread out {6-Spades} {6-Hearts} {3-Diamonds}, and Mizrachi led out with 12,000 himself. Hastings called that bet, and he called another 15,000 after the {9-Clubs} turn. The river brought the {J-Clubs} and another bullet from Mizrachi -- 40,000. Hastings spent the next several minutes in the tank, but he eventually resigned himself to the call for about 25% of his remaining chips.

Mizrachi said, "Nine," and tabled {9-Hearts} {2-Hearts}, and Hastings' cards hit the muck. He's now dangerously short on chips with only about 110,000.

Chips Count
Michael Mizrachi us 1,026,000 126,000
Brian Hastings us 110,000 -85,000
