Day Two Chip Leader? Keep An Eye On Table Eight!

Hoyt Corkins - leading the way

We have been saying it all day, but the magical table eight seems to be where it is all happening. It will be surprising if the chip leader does not rise out of the mayhem that is table eight. With fifteen-minutes of the level remaining we watched a few hands so see who was favourite to come out of the pack.


Hand 1

Rifat Palevic raised to 5,100 in early position and Anthony Lellouche raised to 13,700 a few seats to his left. Action on Tom Bedell in the big blind whio started to think.

"zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz," snored Palevic at the top of his voice.

"Alright I call," said Bedell.

The flop was {K-Hearts} {3-Clubs} {2-Clubs} and the action checked to Lellouche who bet 16,400. Bedell folded but Palevic check-raised to 34,300 and Lellouche folded his hand after Palevic told him he had nothing but knew he had nothing either.

Hand 2

Ifergan raised to 4,200 under the gun and folded to a 10,250 Cody three-bet from the button.

Hand 3

Robert Mizrachi raised to 5,000 in early position and Hoyt Corkins called. The flop was {J-Spades} {10-Clubs} {4-Hearts} and Mizrachi bet 5,300 before folding to a 20,000 Corkins raise.

Hand 4

Cody raised to 4,500 from the hijack and three players called. The flop was {A-Spades} {Q-Diamonds} {9-Spades} and Cody won the pot with a 12,500 c-bet and flashed the {A-Diamonds}.
