Day 9: Nobles, Gold, Laak and Brenes
The only event running with any news to report as of 1 p.m. Saturday was the $2,500 NLHE Event 13. Dmitri Nobles got himself involved in a four-way pot early in the day.
After a pre-flop raise, four players saw the flop:
J♠ 8♦ 6♥
After everyone called the first player's bet of $275, the turn brought the 9♦. It got checked to Nobles, who bet $775, which was called by two players.
The river brought the A♣ for a board of J♠ 8♦ 6♥ 9♦ A♣.
Everyone checked the river, Nobles turning over 7♠ 5♦ for a straight to win a big early pot.
It looks like Gold was doing exactly what he does best again. After raising with A♠ K♥ in one of the first rounds of play, Gold slow-played the flop of A♣ Q♠#9S. When the A♦ came on the turn, Gold pushed his $3,000 stack and talked his opponent into calling off all of his own chips with A♥ 8♦.
Brenes managed to take about half of Laak's stack after flopping a set of threes. Phil never showed his hand, but judging by the unconnected board of Q♠ 3♦ 7♠ 8♣ 2♥, chances are it was a strong top pair or two.
