Week Sixeen - December 18-19

(C-Note: As always, what follows are televised-hand-by-televised-hand accounts.  Obviously, since it's only an hour show, most hands are not televised so you're going to see a lot of jumping of the dealer button. For more information on this and other poker precepts, visit Chris Wolvie's Poker Primer. In the meantime, here's Robert!)

Week 16: only 7 more tourneys after this one. People need to pony up and get those points. Joining Chad this week is a true poker legend Russ Hamilton.

This weeks Magnificent 7 are: Chris Hinchcliffe/Nick Boyeau/Howard Andrew/Max Pescatori (his 7th final table)/Kenna James/Tony Rulles/Robert Keith Young

Only 32 players entered this week's tourney so a slim $4,400 goes to the winner. Plus a trip to Mexico City.

Hand 1: Nick raises to $1,800 with Ad Kc, Tahoe is all in with 10d 10s, Kenna calls with 7-8 hearts. Flop is 6h/3d/6d. Turn is a 9h and a river with a 7s allows Tahoe more time and triples up.

Hand 2: Chris goes all in with J-9 of diamonds, Max calls with K-8 of spades. Flop is Ac/10c/Jc Turn is a 3c and the river is a 3d and Chris is out in 7th place.

Hands 3 and 4 were pure hell due to malfunctioning pens. So all I will tell you is that on hand 3 Tahoe was eliminated and in hand 4, Kenna doubled up. Before hand 5, I found a damn pen that worked.

Hand 5: Robert raises to $2,300 with Qh Qd, Tony goes all in with Ad 5s. Max calls with Ah 4d. Flop is Qs/Kd/10s Turn is a Kh and the river is a 5c and Robert wins the pot, but Tony is out.

Hand 6: Max raises to $2,600 with Ad 8h, Robert calls with Kh 9c. Flop is 8c/5s/2s Turn is 9s. Robert bets $3,000 with Max calling. River is 5c, Robert bets another $3,000. Max calls and loses the pot to Robert.

Hand 7: Max raises to $2,200 with Ac 9H, Kenna goes all in with Ah Jc. However, Robert raises to $7,000 with Qh Qd, Max folds and Kenna is about a 3-1 dog. Flop is 6c/9h/2c, Turn is 5s and the river is a 3h and Kenna rides off into the sunset bar. He is gone.

Hand 8: Robert calls with 7-K of clubs. Nick calls with 8c-6s. Max Checks with 9h 4d. Flop is 9d/Kh/8h. Nick bets $2,000, Max folds the best hand, Robert calls. Max may have had Foresight because the turn was a Kd. Nick bets $3,100 not knowing he couldn't beat Robert's Three Kings. Robert calls and a Qs comes out on the river. Nick bets another $3,100, so Robert calls and swoops up the pot.

Hand 9: Max goes all in with Ad 10s, Robert calls with 5c 5h. Flop is Ks/3h/9c. Turn is a Qh and the river is a Qd and max is out for the 7th time. When will he ever win. So we go to a battle of the youth.


Before Hand 10 comes about, there was a quick ID check to see if these two players were of legal age to be there. The check comes out ok and Matt Savage announces the tourney to continue.

Hand 10: Nick calls with 10h 6c, Rob checks with 10d 8h. Flop is Ks/6h/7h. Nick bets $1,700, Rob calls. turn is a 5c and the river is a 10c. Nick decides to go all in, Rob calls and doubles up nick.

Hand 11: Robert calls with Jd 8c, Nick checks with 5c 9h. Flop is Jc/Qs/5h. Turn becomes a 3s. Robert bets $1,600. Nick decides to go all in, Robert folds the best hand to give the pot to Nick.

Hand 12: Nick calls with 6-5 of Spades, Robert checks with 2-3 clubs. Flop is 2s/3s/Qc, Nick bets $2,400 but Robert Raises to $12,500. Nick gives it up anyways.

Hand 13: Robert calls with Kc 8d. Nick checks with 8s Qh. Flop is 7s/2c/Js Turn is a 5h, River is a 3h and robert wins the pot.

Hand 14: Nick goes all in with 7c 5d, Robert calls with Jc Kd. Flop is Kc/10c/9d. Turn is a Kh and the river is played out which was a 7d but Robert Wins the tourney and some nice money.

With $4,400 and Portable DVD player to take to Mexico City, Robert Keith Young takes home about $9,300 worth of goodies.

There was some great play here. Lets keep it up for the next 7 tourneys. For all of the deuces and treys that make the show possible, I'm the Ace of Spades, Robert Seidelman. Check, Change 100. Doesn't seem to work. So here is another one, Always go all in with A-A and always fold 7-2. I'll come up with a better one. Later.
