Ethier Eliminates Marcus with Lowly Pair of Deuces

Stud-8:

We caught the action with Kevin Marcus all in against Denis Ethier in a hand of Stud-8.

Marcus: ({9-Diamonds})({A-Spades}) - {2-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{10-Hearts} - (X)
Ethier: ({A-Hearts})({2-Hearts}) - {5-Spades}{7-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{8-Clubs} /-({2-Clubs})

We missed the preliminary betting but at some point Marcus committed his last few chips. Ethier squeezed his final down card on seventh street and revealed just a pair of deuces. Marcus had many high cards showing and could not make a low, but he could pair any of his cards to win the pot and survive his all-in confrontation.

We did not see what Marcus was dealt on seventh street, but apparently the dealer tossed him a brick because he soon departed the Amazon Room with a 17th-place finish.

Lake Drowned by Friedman

Stud:

Scott Lake and Adam Friedman were spotted engaging in further combat over another hand of seven-card stud.

Lake: (X)(X) - {10-Spades}{3-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{2-Hearts} - (X)
Friedman: (X)(X) - {6-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{4-Clubs} - (X)

On third street as Lake bet 10,000 and was reraised by Friedman. Lake responded with a four-bet and Friedman made the call. Friedman then led out for 20,000 bets on fourth, fifth, and sixth streets. On the last bet, Lake went into the tank for over three minutes before eventually deciding to muck his hand.

Friedman showed {K-}{K-} for his down cards and after this hand he vaulted to over 560,000 in chips, while Lake sank to just under 240,000 on the day.

Day 3 of $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. Event Ready To Begin

Day 3 of Event # 17, the $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. tournament, will begin with 17 players looking to finish things off and claim the coveted gold bracelet that defines poker greatness. After a grueling two days of competition, each player can taste potential glory and will be leaving everything on the felt, as they try to prove that they have mastered five of poker's more complex disciplines.

Among the notable professionals still remaining in the field are PokerStars Team Pro Victor Ramdin and David Bach. Ramdin will be looking to capture his first World Series of Poker bracelet and cement his reputation as one of the most dangerous tournament players in the world. Bach has already etched his name in the poker history books with his victory in the $50,000 H.O.R.S.E World Championship held at the 2009 WSOP. Winning another H.O.R.S.E. bracelet here today will confirm that Bach deserves to be mentioned along with the game’s greatest mixed game players.

Our Day 3 field also has a decidedly international flair, with Paolo Compagno of Italy and Tristan Clemencon of France looking to continue the dominance shown by foreign players here at the 2011 WSOP. Check in with PokerNews.com for regular updates throughout the day as we play down to our table and crown a new H.O.R.S.E champion.
