Both opponents call, they proceed to check down a 7spade4spade4diamond2heart9spade board, and Stammen tables JclubJspade. Both opponent muck and Stammen scores the triple up.

Grant Lang Doubles Thru Ben Zamani

Level 9: 400-800, 100 ante

Grant Lang Wishes His Daughter a Happy Birthday
Photo: Grant Lang made a sign to send a greeting to his daughter Christina (who follows the live updates) yesterday on her 11th birthday. The sign says, “Happy B-Day to the Best Little Girl in the Whole World, the Love of My Life, Christina. The Big 11.”

Grant Lang raises from middle position and Ben Zamani defends his big blind. The flop comes Qdiamond3heart2diamond and Zamani bets out 2,300. Lang calls.

The turn is the Aheart and Zamani checks. Lang bets 5,100 and Zamani calls.

The river is the Jspade and Zamani checks again. Lang moves al-in for 16,200. Zamani thinks for maybe 30 seconds before calling.

Lang silently  reveals Aclub2heart for aces up, Zamani mucks, and Lang takes the pot.

Grant Lang  -  52,500  (65 bb)
Ben Zamani  -  58,000  (72 bb)

Andrews mucks and Jaffee collects the pot.

Winter Arrives at the WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open

Level 9: 400-800, 100 ante

Borgata in Winter
The big news in the USA this week is the blizzard that rolled into the Northeastern United States yesterday, and Atlantic City was on the southern end of the predicted path.

Last night, New Jersey implemented a travel ban, shutting down all roads in the state for non-emergency use.

Fortunately, Atlantic City wasn't hit very hard, receiving some snow overnight but nothing that looked too dangerous. And it doesn't appear to have had any adverse effects on the WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open, other than the players and dealers who unexpectedly had to stay at the Borgata last night. (The Borgata gave free hotel rooms to all the tournament poker dealers.)

John Dibella vs. Andy Hwang

Level 9: 400-800, 100 ante

John Dibella limps in from early position, a player in middle position limps in, and Andy Hwang raises to 3,000 from the next seat. Only Dibella calls to see the flop fall QheartJspadeJheart.

Dibella checks to Hwang who bets effectively 12,000. After a few moments, Dibella lays down his hand.

Andy Hwang - 295,000 (368 bb)
John Dibella - 12,000 (15 bb)

Not Tony Dunst's Turn

Level 9: 400-800, 100 ante

Jean-Claude Moussa raises from early position, getting three callers, including WPT Ra Deal correspondent Tony Dunst, who is in the big blind.

The flop comes AspadeQclub6club and action checks to Moussa, who bets 3,200. The player in the hijack folds, Eddy Sabat folds from the cutoff, and Dunst calls.

The turn brings the Adiamond and Dunst checks again. Moussa moves all-in for around 17,000, which is roughly half of Dunst's remaining stack.

Dunst wastes little time thinking before saying, "Not my turnn," then folding.

Jean-Claude Moussa - 32,500
Tony Dunst - 34,000

It may not be Dunst's turn to win this hand, but it has been his turn lately to rack up the wins on the Official Daily Fantasy Sports Site of the World Poker Tour, DraftKings. In addition to winning six-figures in a $500 NFL event the other week, he also satellited his way into this tournament for just $50. He entered one of the many WPT satelites offered on DraftKings, won his seat, and is now trying to parlay his $50 buy-in into a much bigger payday.

Should Dunst not make the final table, you'll still be fearing from him on Friday when we live stream the final table of this event and he will call the action.
