6.05pm: PokerStars Blog Feature Seat is on fire
Liya Gerasimova has got her stack up to 50,000, a good 15,000 or so above her boyfriend, Team PokerStars Pro Ivan Demidov. It’s no wonder she got her stack moving in the right direction as after facing a raise and a three-bet in front of her she had no qualms in four-betting and making her two opponents run to the hills.
6.40pm: That’s your Mallot
Dragan Gallic and Andrew Malott are both big stacks at their table and neither are afraid to voice their opinions of each others game. Malott was just suggesting that his opponent played ace-jack badly against his same hand. I doubt Galic cares too much though as he has an 83,000 stack at present.
Malott, who to me looks like a cross between Jean Robert Bellande and Adam Levy, is catching up though. He raised to 1,125 from the button and was called by the small blind before the flop came down Q♥7♠3♥. The small blind led out for 1,500 and Malott called before facing a 6,000 bet on the 3♦ turn. it was about 40% of of the small blind’s stack and after staring him down Malott put him all in. The small blind shrugged and called with K♥10♥ for a flush draw. Malott had made a good read with his Q♠8♦ and it got better as the 8♠ fell on the river to secure him the pot at his opponent’s expense who was eliminated. Malott up to 74,000 now.
