Level 8: Blinds 800/1600/300 ante
On 13 at the end of level 8, seat 2 opened to 3100 from EP and faced a small three bet to 8700. The field folded and seat 2 decided to continue with a call.
The flop came . The original raiser checked, and the 3 bettor, none other than WPT Borgata Champ Guo Liang Chen, now downbet to 7600.
Seat 2 called with hesitation – after all, he could be dead on this dangerous board.
The turn now complicated matters, but the action again went check small bet call.
On the river , a seeming blank, seat 2 suddenly led out for 17, less than one third pot. Liang snapped him off.
Seat table tabled , hoping to avoid a large bluffcatch, but Guo had it – , for a blocker play that had rivered two pair.
Liang is healthy with over 300,ooo, while the already short seat 2 is done.Tony Reed, a Parx 2/5 grinder who has been on PNIA, is in seat one on 13. Next to Liang Chen is Elan Chabi, who just lost with top set to seat 4. He’s still a little salty.
