Who are the two remaining women, would be sick to have a women ship the main event, might perk up the female interest in the game if she does ship it. Could be massively +EV from a 'social' aspect anyway.
I'm thinking of stopping by the Rio tonight to catch a little of the action. Does anybody know what level/time/# of players they're playing to tonight or when I should go to avoid catching them during the dinner break?
Same question goes for tomorrow too, if anybody knows the details on the schedule.
Thai Tran raised it up from the cutoff seat, putting out what looked like 68,000 chips. Next door, Billy Kopp three-bet it up to 225,000 from the button. Next to act was Dennis Phillips, and he had that look in his eye. After about a minute-long staredown in the direction of his two opponents, Phillips four-bet raised it to 700,000 straight. Tran quickly folded, and Kopp followed suit, sending more than 300,000 uncontested chips over to Phillips.
That's the second time he has put in a preflop four-bet here at this featured table, and it's benefitted him to the tune of more than a half-million chips.
Kenny on the Short Stack
Kenny Tran opened, Joseph Cada reraised to 145,000 and Tran made the call. The flop came down . Tran checked, Cada moved all in, and Tran gave up his hand, leaving himself with 280,000 in chips.
True there are a lot of players that won't be afraid to play back at Ivey, but there are also a good number that will be afraid. Table draw at for tomorrow will be crucial for a number of players and I'm sure scared or not no one wants to be at his table.
