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,

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

battle of the youth.
