Final stretch

anc-day2-042630Hand 211, table 7

Last session has started. Results will not be posted until after the last hand has been played out, but we will keep an eye on some of the key players and tables. Mongolia bounced off the last place ranking with an impressive surge and high scores from Temuulen Dashbat sitting at Table 7:

Australia’s Garth kay raises UTG to 175, CPG’s Mo Wei Liang and Temuulen both call as does Sangeeth Mohan in the SB. The flop is 7c 2c 7h. Check-check followed by a bet of 600 from Mo, Garth is the only one to call. The turn is Jc, both players check. The river brings 2h, and the players check it down. Garth is playing the two pairs on the board with an ace kicker but Mo wins with a better two pair holding pocket fives.

Hand 212, table 7

Mo folds UTG, Temuulen calls in 2nd position. Israel’s Hadas Wilf raises to 150 but Sangeeth on the button re-raises to 575 followed by folds around to Temuulen who calls as does Hadas. The flop is Ad 3c 4s and it is checked around to Sangeeth who takes down the pot with a bet of 1,550.
