Poker Maximus IV – Day 6 Recap

Day 6 at Carbon Poker saw three more PM IV tournaments completed and three new winners were crowned. Remember, players earn PM IV points for how well they do over the course of all the events and prizes are given out to the top finishers at the end. Here’s how Day 6’s tournaments wrapped up.

Event #18: $30,000 Guaranteed NLH Turbo + Rebuy – ($55+5 buy-in)

It was no surprise to see the $30K guaranteed total grown by over half as the final prize pool for Event #18 was over $47,000. That is a lot of cash up for grabs on the table and while the top 27 finishers got some of that, the real money ($1100 +) was at the final table. JinxyCatt and CornerDweller were lucky enough to outlast them all and do battle for the $11K 1st place prize.

On the final hand JinxyCatt was dealt 8d,8h and sensed weakness after his opponent limped in from the small blind. JinxyCatt shoved all in and had to be a little surprised to get a call as CornerDweller was holding Ts,Ad. The flop and turn brought no help to CornerDweller’s ace-high (Ks,7s,3h,9h) but lightning struck on the river when the Ac fell, giving him the pot, the tournament win and $11K and change.

Final Table Payouts and Prize Winners:

1 CornerDweller $11487.52; 2 JinxyCatt $7626.96; 3 aROLIz $4708.00; 4 rrmg0503 $3531.00; 5 WarcraftKing $2918.96; 6 SiRobertson1 $2354.00; 7 shuthef $1883.20; 8 loxxii22 $1506.56; 9 Jayman81 $1177.00

Event #19: $20,000 Guaranteed PLO – ($55+5 buy-in)

Event#19 was the third PLO tournament of PM IV and 293 players played down to 1 in just over 7 hours. It was mcpyr0 and WhiteDevil42 who had outlasted everyone else and on the final hand it was WhiteDevil42 who needed one last stroke of help if he wanted to continue on and win Event #19.

WhiteDevil42 was holding Ad,Td,2h,Kc and after he and mcpyr0 traded pre-flop raises, WhiteDevil42 shoved the rest of his stack in the middle.  His opponent was holding Kd,Ks,6s,2s and had to call with his starting pair of Kings. The flop game down Th,5s,9s giving WhiteDevil42 a bit of help with a pair of 10’s but he now needed to avoid a third spade and get some help if he wanted to remain alive.

It wasn’t meant to be though as the Qc fell on the turn and 3c fell on the river, allowing mcypr0’s pair of Kings to hold up as the best hand, giving him the Event#19 crown.

1 mcpyr0 $4880.00; 2 WhiteDevil42 $3240.00; 3 LeftRightLeft $2000.00; 4 BustNuts $1500.00; 5 PEPPERONiKID $1240.00; 6 mahilk $1000.00; 7 CUTTHROATKILLER $800.00; 8 Crackerontilt $640.00; 9 TheGfactor33 $500.00

Event #20: $25,000 Guaranteed NLH 6-Max, rebuy – ($10+1 buy-in)

1st place was worth over $5200 after nearly 1000 players signed up for Event #20 and made their way through the rebuy period. In a tournament that lasted over hours it was Sizzlinbet and Smashers25 who managed to maneuver their way through everyone else and battle for the title. Here’s how they wrapped it up:

Smashers25 was on the big stack and was dealt pocket 5’s in the big blind. After Sizzlinbet put in a min-raise pre-flop with As,3d, Smashers25 saw an opportunity to either steal the pot or possibly win this tournament here and now and shoved all-in. Sizzlinbet made the call and needed to get some help on the flop.

The board wouldn’t oblige though (Js,2d,Ts,4h,3h) and Sizzlinbet was left wondering what could have been. Congrats to Smashers25 for winning Event #20 and taking home $5200 in the process.

Final table results:

1 Smashers25 $5269.23; 2 Sizzlinbet $3944.69; 3 Vamonospeste $2834.17; 4 thatspoker27 $1966.57; 5 allinDomination $1417.09; 6 Heisenberg66 $838.69; 7 PANKLER $578.41; 8 LoveForFire $578.41; 9 out2gitu $578.41

Wednesday’s events on the PM IV schedule are all of Hold’em variety as there are two of the No Limit variety and one Limit Hold’em tournament. The total prize pools for these events is over $80K and with points continually be awarded to players for how well they place, today is a great chance for Hold’em players to move well up that leaderboard.
