Irish Winter Festival: Dorlan Schick Back in Business
Dorlan Schick chose the right time to be lucky. Actually, he was short stacked for a long time and it was time to quit or double up.
All the table folded until the small blind who decided to shove. Dorlan made the call with 8♣ 9♣ and held out over the 8♦ 6♥ of his opponent. Dorlan doubled to a little bit more than 18K.
A few hands later, a player in middle position raised and Dorlan moved all-in. All the table gave up except the initial raiser who snap-called with pocket Queens.
Dorlan Schick showed: K♠ J♠ and hit a king to win the pot and climbed to around 39K.
The 148 players left in the Irish Winter Festival Main Event tournament are on a break just before playing the last hour of Day1. The average chip stack is up to 40K and the blinds will increase to 500/1,000, ante 100, as Level 10 begins.
After 3 days of wonderful poker, Team Titan’s French pro player Florian Desgouttes was eliminated from the EPT San Remo Main Event on a really hard last hand that he couldn’t avoid just before the end of Day 3.
Florian, with pocket 3s, hit the flop: 8♥ 3♣ 4♥ and invested his entire stack of 220K (with the average stack being 320K). His opponent had A♣ 8♣ and hit only a pair on the flop. Unfortunately for Florian, the turn fell K♣ and the river brought the 10♣ , completing his opponent’s flush.
Really cruel for our French player who nevertheless enjoyed a beautiful result, ending his Italian poker adventure with a prize of €10,000.
