Lew > Hawrilenko

Matt Hawrilenko raised from under the gun, and the action folded all the way to PokerStars Team Online Member Randy "nanonoko" Lew, who re-raised. Hawrilenko called, and the flop fell {6-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{a-Clubs}. Lew bet, and Hawrilenko called.

The turn was the {5-Clubs}, Hawrilenko called another bet from Lew, and the {4-Diamonds} completed the board. Lew fired one final bullet, and Hawrilenko released.

Sevens Good for Jungblut

• Taso 4: 150-300, 0 ante

When we reached the table, the flop had already fallen {6-Hearts}{9-Spades}{5-Hearts}, and there was about 1,400 in the middle. A player under the gun checked to Brett Jungblut who bet, David Chiu raised, and only Jungblut called.

Both players checked on the turn ({9-Diamonds}), and the river ({q-Clubs}), and Chiu showed {a-Spades}{6-Spades} for a pair of sixes. They were no good against Jungblut's {7-Spades}{7-Clubs} however, and Jungblut was shipped the pot.

Heads Up: Andy Bloch & Barry Greenstein
Heads Up: Andy Bloch & Barry Greenstein

Over in the Orange Section of the Amazon Room, Andy Bloch is sitting right next to Barry Greenstein. Why is this relevant? Well, two days ago, they were playing heads up for a bracelet in Event 7: $1,500 Seven Card Stud. Bloch was looking for his first career bracelet, and entered heads-up play with a clear chip advantage against Greenstein, who was looking for number four.

In the end, it was Bloch who triumphed, earning him $126,363 and his first ever WSOP gold bracelet.
