Main Event Day 2 Level 14

Christa Weaver in Event #16.  The Main Event is starting Level 14.
Blinds are $1,500 – $3,000 with $300 ante

Our girl Christa regales us with a story from her table in Event #16.  She was dealt pocket 7’s in late position, a big raise from an EP player when her phone began ringing.  She wasn’t calling a raise that big with a baby pair and prepared to answer her phone.  In the act of mucking her cards she caught and edge exposing her cards to the entire table.  The flop brought a 7 and the turn brought the case 7.  Ended up two players all-in which would have produced and sizable pot for our girl but it wasn’t to be.  She doesn’t mind not playing the hand, only that the entire table was aware of her miss.

Never a dull moment here in the tournament room.

In the Main Event area, Allen “Chainsaw” Kessler was unable to stay alive even though he outlasted more than half of the Day 2 field.  Victor Ramdin survived his short stack shoves and now sitting with 120,000.  Mark “dipthrong” Herm took a hit to his chip stack when a player was willing to call off his chips with nothing but a jack high flush draw, and it hit.  Kevin “Lucko” O’Brien’s table became a little bit easier with the loss of Ted Forrest from the tournament but it’s still a formidable task.

Tony Cousineau told us of a story at his table earlier in the day when he was only dealt one card on the button and saw a few limpers before action was on him.  He decided to get frisky and pop it up big.  One player started the long sweat as he went in the tank and eventually folded AQ face up.  At that point Tony let it be known that he was only holding one card.

We are in the last level before the dinner break and sitting with 333 players remaining.
