Event 13: $1,500 Limit Hold'em

Weiss Crippled, Then Doubles

It too has been a rough day for Jeff Weiss. He came into today as one of the bigger stacks with 171,000, but it has been a downward spiral today. Here's the hand that did most the damage.

Roland Israel raised it up in late position, and Weiss called. David Arsht also called in the big blind, and the flop came down {k-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}. Arsht checked to Israel who bet out, and Weiss called. Arsht check raised, and Israel folded. However, Weiss came along. Arsht bet on the turn, the {8-Clubs}, and the river, the {8-Spades}, and Weiss called both times. Arsht showed {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}, and Weiss tapped the tabled before open mucking {k-}{q-}.

That knocked him down to just 12,000, thought he did double up a few hands later. He shoved in the small blind with {a-Clubs}{5-Spades}, and Jennifer Harman called in the big blind with {q-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}. Weiss flopped two pair and held, and he got the first of what will need to be a few double ups if he wants to be a contender again.

David Arsht us 165,000 35,000
Jeff Weiss us 30,000 -112,000
