Final Table Update #3
Baker: did we say he's in trouble?
Another level has come and gone and we've yet to see an elimination. That's not to say there hasn't been plenty of action, although there hasn't been. Anyways, here's the scoop:
Vaswani = The Nuts
Ram Vaswani, David Mosca and David Baker see a flop come 9♠ 6♠ 5♠. Baker bets out, Mosca folds and Vaswani raises. Baker calls and the turn is the 2♥, prompting a check from Baker and a bet from Vaswani. Baker calls and the river is the 4♠. Baker again checks and Vaswani again bets out. Baker calls, but mucks after Vaswani shows A♠ J♠ for the nut flush, leaving himself nearly crippled and in dire need of improvement - and fast.
Earlier in the proceedings, Vaswani took another large chunk off of Baker when he turned a straight with J-10 on an A-8-7-9-8 board, thus contributing to further to Baker's sticky situation.
Kings No Good
Ishak Noyan raises from UTG+1 and Rayvenia Puckett re-ups from middle position. Ram Vaswani calls in the small blind and Noyan four-bets it. Both players call and the flop comes Q♥ 6♣ 5♦. The action checks to Puckett, who bets, and after Vaswani folds Noyan raises and Puckett re-raises. Noyan calls and the turn is the 2♦, prompting a check from Noyan and a bet from Puckett. Noyan flat-calls and check-calls the 4♠ on the river, but when Puckett turns up pocket kings he triumphantly slams down a pair of red aces.
It's the second time Puckett has seen her kings cracked, having earlier fallen to Ram Vaswani's rivering a flush to put more of a dent in her stack.
