2014 Coco Poker Open

Championship: Hass Takes Some From Hans

$2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 10K/20K/3K ante

Hans Winzeler opened to 40,000 and was called by David Hass. The flop came AdJd6c and Winzeler checked to Hass who bet 50,000. Winzeler made the call.

The turn was the 7s and Winzeler check-called another Hass bet, this time for 65,000. Both players checked the 6s river and Hass took down the pot with his AcQh as his queen kicker would play to best Winzeler’s As9s.

Championship: Hass Doubles Through Fariab

$2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 8K/16K/2K ante

In one of the biggest hands of the tournament, it was three-way action to the Ah8s7d flop before they checked it around. David Hass led out for 35,000 after the 9s turn and Iraj Fariab raised to 125,000. Cliff Gladston let his hand go and Hass three-bet shoved for 422,000.

Fariab took a few seconds before calling with an open-ended straight draw 6c6h but was drawing dead when Hass tabled JdTc. The river was the pointless Th to move Hass up among the leaders.

Championship: 11th Place – Roger Goindoo ($12,000)

$2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 8K/16K/2K ante

The other big hand happening at the same time Rober Goindoo all-in against Bruce Snell with AdJh versus 2h2s on the Js5s2c flop. There was no help when the 8h and 4s to put him on a very short stack.

Goindoo moved in a few hands later for just 21,000 and found four callers. His opponents checked down the TdTc7c8h board before Snell bet 30,000 on the 6h river. He got folds all around until Goindoo tabled KsQh which was no good against Snell’s Ah9c straight to send Goindoo out in 11th place for $12,000.

Championship: 12th Place – Richard Kirsch ($12,000)

$2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 8K/16K/2K ante

Two big hands were going on at the same time and the first one saw Skip McDonough get all-in against Richard Kirsch with KhKc dominating AdQd. McDonough lead in the hand was cemented immediately on the Kd9d7h flop but needed to dodge flush outs. The board finished 3c and 5h to send Kirsch out in 12th place for $12,000.

Championship Event: 13th Place – Abbey Daniels ($9,500)

2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 6K/12K/1K ante

Hans Winzeler opened for a raise to 25,000 and Abbey Daniels moved all in over the top. It was folded back to Winzeler who made the easy call with AsAc. Daniels had Ah9c and would get a small glimmer of hope on the Js9h4c flop but no nine would come on the turn or river and Daniels was eliminated in 13th place for $9,500.

Championship: 14th Place – David Nowling ($9,500)

$2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 8K/16K/2K ante

Just two hands after Noah Schwartz was sent out, David Nowling shoved his small stack after John Dolan opened for a min-raise. Action folded back to the November Niner and Dolan quickly called with Ah6h ahead of As5d.

Nowling picked up a gut-short Wheel draw on the Kc4d3c flop. Dolan hit the 6s turn and the tournament was done for Nowling on the 4c river. He picks up $9,500 for his 14th place finish.

David Nowling - 14th Place ($9,500)

Championship: 15th Place – Noah Schwartz ($9,500)

$2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 6K/12K/2K ante

On the last hand of the level, Raymond McDonough opened to 36,000 from early position and Iraj Fariab called before Noah Schwartz shoved in his short stack. John Dolan folded and Richard Kirsch immediately shoved all-in over the top.

McDonough and Fariab let their hands go and Schwartz saw his move with 8d6d was in trouble against the JdJs of Kirsch. Schwartz improved on the Ts8s3s flop but was unable to improve on the turn or river to go out in 15 place for $9,500.

Championship: 16th Place – Derek Alley ($8,000)

$2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 6K/12K/2K ante

Roger Goindoo was moved to Table 24 to balance the tables after Michael Beasley’s elimination and he wasted no time mixing it up. He was still unpacking his chips when he opened to 27,000 from early position.

Bruce Snell called in the small blind before Derek Alley shoved from the big blind for 195,000. Goindoo thought it over before finally calling with 7h7c, Snell got out of the way and Alley showed the flipping AsJs.

The board ran out Qs9h3h9d6h to finish the tournament for Alleh in 16th place for $8,000.

Championship: 17th Place – Mike Beasley ($8,000)

2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 6K/12K/1K ante

Mike Beasley opened for 26,000 and it was folded to Cliff Gladstone in the blinds who made it 61,000 to go. Beasley made the call and the two would see a flop of Js6h3s. Gladstone led out for 35,000 and Beasley made the call.

The turn was the 5h and Gladstone moved all in for an effective 140,000. Beasley went into the tank, taking time to pay the cocktail waitress for his food, and Gladstone eventually called the clock. Once he did that, Beasley quickly grabbed a stack of chips and slapped them down in the middle to indicate a call.

Beasley turned over 7s7d and would need to hit a seven or four on the river as Gladstone had the over pair with KdKc. The river was the Qs and Gladstone pumped his fists in celebration as Beasley was eliminated in 17th place for $8,000.

Championship: Winzeler Bluffs Van Sanford

2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 6K/12K/1K ante

Ryan Van Sanford opened for 26,000 and found one caller in Hans Winzeler. The flop came 8c7s7d and Van Sanford led out for 38,000 and was called by the chip leader. The turn was the 5d and Van Sanford bet again, this time for 69,000. Winzeler again called.

The river was the 7h and Van Sanford sat still for about twenty seconds before tapping the table. Winzeler thought for a moment and put out a bet of just under 100,000. Van Sanford folded quickly and Winzeler turned over Td9d for a draw that didn’t get there.

Championship: 18th Place – Luis Santoni ($8,000)

2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 6K/12K/2K ante

Luis Santoni raised to 27,000 from middle position and called a 65,000 three-bet from Hans Winzeler to see the QcJs5h flop. Santino checked and Winzeler asked how much Santoni was playing.

Winzeler then pushed out enough 25k chips to put Santoni all-in and he took his time before the shrugging call with KsJd for second pair. Winzeler turned over KcTh for the open-ended straight draw which got there right on the 9h turn to send Santoni out in 18th place for $8,000.

Championship Event: 19th Place – Alex Bolotin ($7,000)

2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 5K/10K/1K ante

Alex Bolotin opened for 20,000 and Iraj Fariab raised it up to 45,000. It was folded back to Bolotin who moved all in and he was quickly called by Fariab. The two were off to the races with Bolotin holding QcQd and Fariab AdKc.

It’s been Fariab’s day thus far and that would continue when the board ran out Tc6d6cAs9s to give him a pair of aces. Bolotin was eliminated in 19th place for $7,000 and the tournament staff is redrawing the final two tables.

Championship Event: 20th Place – Jason Weber ($7,000)

2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 5K/10K/1K ante

On a flop of 9d3s2d, John Dolan bet 20,000 and was called by Jason Weber. The turn was the 8h and this time Dolan bet 54,000 and Weber moved all in for approximately 200,000. Dolan made the call with KsKd and Weber would need a miracle on the river as he had only a pair of threes with his Kd3h. The river was not the miracle he needed as it was the Qc and Weber was eliminated in 20th place for $7,000.

Jason Weber - 20th Place ($7,000)

Championship: 22nd Place – Jason Mercier ($7,000)

2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 5K/10K/1K ante

A short-stacked Jason Mercier moved all in under the gun and it was folded to chip leader Hans Winzeler in the big blind who took his time before deciding to call. Mercier held AhTh and Winzeler 6c6h.

The flop came JdTc2c to move Mercier into the lead. The turn was the As giving Mercier two pair and only a six on the river would send him home. The dealer put out precisely that with the 6s and Mercier was eliminated in 22nd place for $7,000.

Championship: 24th Place – Tim Miles ($7,000)

2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 5K/10K/1K ante

Noah Schwartz opened to 23,000 from middle position and former chip leader Tim Miles moved all-in from the button for 129,000 total. Schwartz took his time and ran through the math, mostly audible, and finally tossed in calling chips with 7d7c.

Miles was flipping for his tournament life with Ah8s. The Th9c5d flop changed little but Miles hit the 8h turn while also giving Schwartz an open-ended straight draw. The 6c dropped on the river to give Schwartz the hand and send Miles out in 24th place for $7,000.

Miles had a healthy chip lead for much of the Championship Event but ran into trouble late in Day 2 and wasn’t able to comeback.

Championship: Gladstone Doubles

2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 4K/8K/1K ante

A short-stacked Cliff Gladstone moved all in for 85,000 and was called by Jason Weber. The rest of the table folded and Gladstone turned over QhJs and was in trouble as he was dominated by Weber’s AcQs.

The flop, however, came QcJh8s prompting Gladstone to say “oh wow” as he had flopped top two pair. The turn and river bricked out 4d3d to give Gladstone the much needed double up.

Championship: 26th Place – David Poces ($7,000)

2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 4K/8K/1K ante

David Poces moved all in under the gun for 74,000 and it was folded to Iraj Fariab who unaware that Poces had moved all in made a call for the 8,000 big blind. The floor was called over and despite Fariab’s protests and several other players at the table agreeing with Fariab it was ruled that he would have to call the 74,000 as it was his obligation to pay attention to the action at the table.

The remainder of the table folded and Fariab turned over Ah6d and it looked as if Poces and his AdKd would be the beneficiary of Fariab’s mistake. As often happens in poker though that was not what would happen here as Fariab would hit the Jc6c3s flop to give him a pair of sixes. The turn was the Jh and the river was the Jd and Poces was eliminated in 26th place for $7,000.

Championship: 27th Place – David Diaz ($7,000)

2,500 No Limit Hold’em Championship Event
Blinds: 4K/8K/1K ante

Mike Beasley opened for 18,000 and a short-stacked David Diaz moved all in for approximately 65,000. It was folded back to Beasley who wasted no time in calling and turning over AhKh. Diaz was in bad shape with his AcTd and would receive no help when the board ran out Ad9s4d5h5c. Diaz was eliminated in 27th place for $7,000.
