Event 17: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em

Rinse and Repeat

• Taso 26: 25,000-50,000, 0 ante

The action has been very passive in the first 15 minutes of the new level. The average stack is starting to get a little thin, and each decision is becoming more meaningful at this point. We've seen one pot checked down to the river, another one checked through the river, and plenty of raise-and-takes.

The last hand stuck out only because it was a copy of the action we saw on the first hand of the level. Ivey was under the gun and raised to 120,000, and Ali Eslami defended his big blind. Ivey bet another 120,000 on the {5-Spades} {2-Clubs} {7-Clubs}, and Eslami quickly check-folded.
