Week 17: Short Stack Specialist Andra Zachow stages a HUGE comeback to get a win!
Anthony Pellegrini was playing for Andrea Ruosi and Marv “the Duckman” Karlins shoved KK. Anthony’s AA held for a full double at the start of the night.
At 100/200 Andra Zachow chopped the pot with Ed VanLandingham when they both rivered the straight. Ed bet 1200 on the river, Matt Trizis called. Andra raised to 4000 and Ed jammed. Andra called hoping Ed didn’t have 9T, he didn’t.
Marv prematurely showed his set of twos in a hand with Anthony P. Anthony stayed for another card but folded when the Duckman stated that he had quad twos.
Steve Trizis, playing for Mark Wiser, was all in and got the double.
At 200/400 Brandon Byars, playing for Wally, called a 4K raise from the Duckman. The flop was 22J. Terrifying.
Marv then caught trip Jacks to put a huge dent in Brandon’s stack.
Andra’s A2 held for a double up! She is a renowned short stack specialist due to years of experience with short stacks.
Ed doubled through Steve Trizis leaving Steve on fumes!
Andra Zachow shoved, Jacob Naumann called and Jeff Gordon shoved for less. Jeff KK, Jacob JJ, Andra AQ. Jeff’s KK held and Andra turned a Q for the side pot to chip her up a little.
Matt Trizis doubled through the Duckman. Marv out 9th

From the Godfather:
Next week is the last week of the summer session. Attendance has fallen dramatically the last few weeks and consequently we are losing one minor seat.
Prizes will be.
1st thru 5th $10,000 for the main event.
6th a $2000 package. ($1500 + $500 travel)
This leaves $1500 plus whatever we bring in next week for the final money event – The Losers Lounge Freeroll that is not Free- on Friday night Oct 1.
Hopefully attendance is better this coming week.
Whether you are out of it, or have already clinched a seat, good sportsmanship dictates that you should show up for this week’s tourney. While Jeremy and Brenda are guaranteed a seat, spots 3 through 9 are still fighting for the remaining three Main Event seats and minor seat. If only they showed up, it would be impossible for the one in 7th, 8th or 9th place to advance. Put yourself in their place. In addition, every Penny of the WSOP money this week goes to the freeroll, so you aren’t losing anything if you haven’t clinched.
If this doesn’t convince you to play, please let me know why, so we can improve this next session.
