All-in calls fill the air in WSOP Main Event

10 July 2007

The shouts of "all-in call" rang loud and clear above the din of chips clacking, cameras clicking, table banter and players trying to talk their way through critical hands Tuesday on Day 2A of the World Series of Poker Main Event.

Every time a dealer yelled the powerful phrase, players at nearby tables paused to check out the hand, a Harrah's official – if one was nearby – moved in to supervise the table, fans craned their necks to see the action and reporters, TV cameras and photographers raced over to the table to see who might be busting out.

At times, the action was non-stop. "All-in call at table 54," shouted one dealer. "All-in call at table 53," yelled another seconds later. "All-in call at 58" bellowed another as it let the casino floor know that a possible bust-out hand was in progress. The clarion calls came from all sides and all corners of the Amazon Room at the Rio All Suite Hotel & Casino as players fervently battled to survive and advance into Day 3.

Here's a look at a 45-minute stretch of bust-outs during Day 2A's evening session. (Note: This particular period had more bust-outs than listed here. These are simply the ones Casino City observed)

5:16 (Table 54): Pocket 10s beat pocket 3s and the dealer shouts "Open seat at 54."

5:17 (Table 53): Pocket Aces beat pocket Kings and another player is sent home.

5:18 (Table not noted): Pocket Queens crack pocket Aces to stay in the tournament.

5:21 (Table 54): It's A-Q vs. K-J in this hand. An ace comes out on the flop and K-J is sent home packing.

5:25 (Table 46): It's K-Q vs. K-8 in this race. K-Q wins this hand with K-K-Q-Q beating K-K-8-8 to survive.

5:28 (Table 57): A classic match-up between pocket aces and A-K. The flop came out J-7-7. A 5 hit on the turn and a 7 on the river. And Mr. Pocket Aces stayed alive in the tournament.

5:30 (Table 41): A player with A-10 survives against pocket Aces.

5:35 (Table 44): 66 goes all in against A-J. The sixes hold up and A-J is busted out of the tournament.

5:40 (Table in the the 30's) It's K-K vs A-7 at this table and in the end, the pocket Kings took it with K-K-8-8.

5:42 (Table 29): Monster hand here. Short stack goes in with pocket Aces and is called by pocket 10s. After the dust settled, and an ace on the river, A-A-A-5-5 beat 10-10-10-5-5 to win the hand and survive.

5:44 (Table 46): Pocket Jacks beats A-10 and another player exits the tournament.

5:46 (Table 27): Pocket Queens beat A-9 and the field loses another player.

5:48 (Table 32): 8-8 beats K-Q to survive.

5:51 (Table 58): It's pocket Tens vs. A-7 in this hand. The board read 10-3-A-K-4 and A-7 survived with a heart flush.

5:55 (Table 57) Shirley Williams, mother of David Williams who has already been all-in a few times is back at it. She hold A-K while her opponent has A-10. The board reads Q-J-10 and Williams picks up the straight to survive again.

5:57 (Table 17) Evelyn Ng busts out of the tournament, breaking the hearts of male fans across the world. (Didn't make it there in time to see the hand).

6:01 (Table 58): It's 8-8 vs. J-J in this confrontation. An eight appears on the board, and the pocket Jacks are sent packing.
