  1. BoooDaniel Negreanu Eliminated in 4th Place ($80,000)Daniel Negreanu limped on the button with Qc5c , David Benyamine completed in the small blind with Kd9s, and Giovanni Safina checked his option with As 2d .The flop would create fireworks for sure coming down Kc 9c Qd. Benyamine checked, as did Safina and Negreanu bet 40,000 before Benyamine raised it up to 120,000. Negreanu moved all in, and Benyamine quickly made the call. The Kh on the turn ended all the drama, and the 2s on the river was just for kicks. Benyamine had Negreanu barely covered, and now has 694,000. Daniel Negreanu earned $
  2. Just hate that.. I dunno. I know Gibler has had a loose image early.. but he still had to put another like 3.7 mill in on top of his 4 bet. I dunno, guess he had the chips.
  3. Weeeee! Nice binkage!Anyone else hate D'Angelo's call??????????? Or is that standard?
  4. This break is so dumb. 1.5 hoursish in...ugh!Great match so far.. pretty exciting with the commentary.
  5. Sick sick sick structure for this years circuit events! $345/555 buy in NL events start with 10k chips and 45 min levels. Tons of levels might I add! Gonna be pretty awesome!$5k main event has 30k chips and 75 minute levels. (not that I'll be playing this one, just an FYI).
  6. Still don't think it's a better structure than The Venetian.Venetian still offers all the middle levels, has a much smoother blind structure and antes.
  7. Was a bit slow for our first Chicago event, but decent over-all. I think the bears game definitely affected business. We're there again next Thursday, so hopefully more of you can show up. Thanks for those who did. Off to bed, g'night!
  8. It's our first time venturing into the city, so hopefully we'll get at least 50 for the MINI deepstack. We've been running BIG Deepstacks the last couple weekends, those may be more up your alley Suited_Up. $200 buy in, 30 min levels 15k chips to start. Not sure when the next one of those is, but our mini deepstacks have an excellent structure still with a lot of play early on.Hope you can make it out.
  9. I'll pass that along, thanks Jeff.

  11. Now don't quote me on this, but I had a situation before in the 2-5 game at the Horseshoe, where I called a guys bet on the river and he insta-mucked. Someone asked to see my hand, and the dealer said that since the called hand mucked, I didn't have to show my hand, which I gladly didn't, and thought that I wouldn't have to show.I've kinda adapted this rule for when I'm dealing as well. I really think that since they mucked, you shouldn't be forced to show a winning hand, sine them mucking equals you winning anyway, regardless of your two cards.Mucked hand heads up = other guy winning.

  12. Got 49th in the event today for $717. Was fun, but they sped the structure up wayyy too much. Took more than 25% of the play out of the tournament. Instead of 40 minute levels, they had 30 minute. Plus they skipped two early levels, which really sucked. 100-200-25 to 200-400-50 is a rough jump. Also skipping 75/150 level was no good.Oh well, was fun. Was the only circuit event I played in, so I'm happy with the cash. Can't wait til next year!
  13. Also playing the Sunday event. I hope they get between 500-700 for it. Maybe more.
  14. Girlfriend is there playing the 550 today. She just texted me and says there's only like 300 people reg'd for it so far. I'm sure it'll increase to around 5 by the time the cards are in the air, but just an FYI for anyone curious.Good luck today!
  15. I'll take 25 on the Fish +3. Shipping from Nevett (Toronto)
  16. I'm guessing 7 or 8 tables for the deepstack. Could be more though, as we had well over 300 people through the doors yesterday.Leaving now for the event, will check back later.
  17. Chicago Charitable Games is at The Odeum in Villa Park today. We had a great turn out last night, and I'm sure it'll be even busier today.We're also running a $200 Deepstack with 15k chips / 20 minute levels starting at 4pm. $100 2nd Chance to follow at 7:30 if anyone is in the tourney mood before the WSOPC enters town.Hope to see some of you out there, starts at 2pm.RyanChicago Poker Live
  18. Up to 65.5k now. Weeeeeeeee!I dealt to Fluffdog once! Weeeeeeee Brag post.
  19. Naw, none was yours. Mike told me where you were sitting, but I wasn't really sure who he meant by Andy or I would've popped over to say hello. I was there from 5pm to about 1:30am.First table broke and I went to eat buffet so I cashed out +200 for the session. After buffet I was in for 300 and cashed out +617. Sweet at 1/2 for sure. I dunno, game seems so soft, I don't see a point to moving to 2/5. Plus I don't have the b/r to play 2/5 and play the number of hands that I like to play.
