Live Tournament UpdatesWaxman Teaches Bari that Limping Ain't Easy
Players returned from dinner break refreshed and ready to go. They were much more chirpy and still willing to get their chips in the middle.
It didn’t take long to break the first table after dinner and they are down to five table.
Matt Waxman continues to play his healthy stack close to the vest while the others continue to push things around.
He was responsible for one of the bigger hands of the day and it came at the expense of Allen Bari.
Action folded to the button who tossed in 4,000 for the called followed by Bari limping in from the small blind.
“Come on guys,” said Waxman as he checked his action.
All three checked the A♣ T♠#9 flop and Bari led out for 7,000 on the 4♠ turn. Only Waxman called before the J♦ river.
Bari bet 12,000 which Waxman raised to 36,000 after some consideration. Bari was then in no hurry to make up his mind.
“Sorry,” he said after he thought things over for a few minutes. Then he thought for another few minutes.
He eventually tossed in the calling chips and Waxman turned over K♦ Q♣ for the rivered straight.
The pot took Waxman up to ~235,000.
Really Bad Beat
Bad beats happen all the time, just part of the game. Tony Gargano almost topped them all after he busted out.
Tournament staff spent several minutes looking for him because he left his wallet, and everything contained therein, sitting at the payout window.
Andrew Robl and Erick Lindgren both offered to return it but Gargano was able to track down the missing item.
