Steve Levy Eliminated By Rhynie Campbell

Level 2: 75-150, ante

2654 Rhynie Campbell
Photo: Rhynie Campbell, who won WPT Turks & Caicos back in Season VI.

Three players see a flop of Kclub9diamond7heart. Steve Levy is in the small blind and bets 700. Rhynie Campbell is in middle position and calls. The player in the cutoff folds.

The turn brings the 5club and Levy bets 2,175. Campbell raises, making it 6,500 to play, and Levy quickly announces he is all-in for not too much more than that.

Campbell calls and shows AheartAspade for an overpair of aces. Levy holds K-Q for top pair. The river Jclub is no help to Levy and he is eliminated early in the Day 1A action.

Rhynie Campbell - 40,000
Steve Levy - eliminated

Adam Katz vs. Alex Venovski

Level 2: 75-150, ante

Adam Katz raises to 500 from early position, Darryll Fish calls in middle position, Alex Venovski calls from the small blind, and the player in the big blind calls as well.

The four players all check the Qclub9heart4heart flop.  Venvoski bets 1,500 after the turn brings the 7spade.  The player in the big blind folds, Katz calls, and Fish folds.

The river is the 6club and Venovski bets 3,550.  Katz announces call and Venovski shows Qdiamond10heart for top pair.  Katz has him bested though with 4diamond7diamond for two pair, fours and sevens.


Venovski is one of the early big stacks here on Day 1A, so while that pot put a little dent in his stack, he is still well above the rest of the pack.

Adam Katz - 37,000
Alex Venovski - 55,000

Battle of the Matts

Level 2: 75-150, ante

A player in early position raises to 400, a player in middle position calls, and Matt Stout pauses a moment before calling in middle position as well.  Matt Waxman calls from the button, then Noah Schwartz defends his big blind.

The flop comes 5diamond3diamond2heart and action checks to Stout, who bets 1,200. Waxman is the only caller.  The turn brings the Jspade and Stout bets 2,700.  Waxman calls again.  The river is the 4heart and prompts a bet of 4,100 from Stout.  

Waxman thinks for over a minute before folding.  As Stout starts stacking chips, Waxman tells him, "I would've three-bet pre."  He pauses, then adds, "With ace-queen of diamonds," inferring that is what Stout held.

Stout looks up from stacking his chips and asks, "What would you have done with queen-nine of diamonds?"

Matt Stout - 43,500
Matt Waxman - 23,000

James St Hilaire Picks Up a Pot

Level 2: 75-150, ante

James St. Hilaire raises to 350,000 from under the gun, a player in middle position, Mike Beasley calls, Chris Tryba calls from the cutoff, and the player in the big blind calls.

The flop comes 9diamond6spade5club and action checks to Tryba, who bets 1,100. The player in the big blind and St. Hilaire call, while the player in middle position and Beasley both fold.

The turn is the 5diamond and action once again checks to Tryba, who bets 2,625.  The player in the big blind folds and St. Hilaire calls.

The river is the 7club and both players check.  St. Hilaire shows 8spade9spade for a rivered straight.  Tryba tosses his JdiamondJheart face up into the muck.

"This Must Be The Late Reg Table"

Level 2: 75-150, ante

2726 Tough Table - Matt Waxman Noah Schwartz Christian Harder Matt Stout
Matt Stout is one of the latest players to take his seat at the Seminole Hard Rock, and it certainly isn't an ideal chair for him.

Stout is at what is arguably the toughest table in the room, with six of the nine seats occupied by young, tough pros.  Here is a look at the line-up:

Seat 1: unknown player
Seat 2: Corey Burbick 
Seat 3: empty
Seat 4: Matt Waxman
Seat 5: Jesse Cohen
Seat 6: Noah Schwartz 
Seat 7: Christian Harder
Seat 8: unknown player
Seat 9: unknown player
Seat 10: Matt Stout

Stout is trying to keep on the bright side about the tough table draw.  "We've got to be one of the first tables to break," he explains.  "Cause this is obviously the late reg table."
