APPT Macau 2007 High Roller Event: Hands 103 - 115

Hand 115:

Button: Sehlstedt (seat 4) – 32,000 is the raise by Sehlstedt, Assadourian reraises 100,000, Sehlstedt is again all-in and Assadourian covers the extra. Sehlstedt shows Ad Kh, while Assadourian is dominated Kd 10d. The board shows 6h Qh 3s Qs 4d, and Sehlstedt is right back in the game.

Hand 114: Bo Sehlstedt

Button: Assadourian (seat 6) – Assadourian calls the extra 10,000 and Sehlstedt checks his option. The flop is Qh 5d 2c, Sehlstedt raises 18,000 and takes it down.

Hand 113: Eric Assadourian

Button: Sehlstedt (seat 4) – Sehlstedt calls in the small blind, Assadourian raises 35,00 and Sehlstedt folds.

Hand 112: Bo Sehlstedt

Button: Assadourian (seat 6) – Assadourian raises 85,000 (enough to cover Sehlstedt) and Swede says it’s time to gamble with Kd 8c. Assadourian is in the box seat to take it out with Ac 9c. The flop is 4h 10s 2h but the 8d puts Sehlstedt ahead. The 10h on the river puts Sehlstedt almost back where he started (172,000) when the heads-up contest started. He’s doubled-up three times in the past five hands.

Hand 111: Eric Assadourian

Button: Sehlstedt (seat 4) – Sehlstedt now has some chips to pick his mark, and folds the small blind.

Hand 110: Bo Sehlstedt

Button: Assadourian (seat 6) – Assadourian folds, and Sehlstedt picks up the blinds.

Hand 109: Eric Assadourian

Button: Sehlstedt (seat 4) – Sehlstedt folds in the small blind.

Hand 108: Bo Sehlstedt

Button: Assadourian (seat 6) – Sehlstedt is up to 46,000 in chips, Assadourian bets enough to put Sehlstedt all-in and the Swede takes the bait. He shows Kc 8s, against Assadourian’s 9s 8h. The flop is all low (2h 2s 4c), stays low with the 5c on the turn and the river is the 10c and Sehlstedt adds an extra 45,000 to his stack.

Hand 107: Bo Sehlstedt

Button: Sehlstedt (seat 4) – The final hand? Sehlstedt is all-in with As 4d against Assadourian’s 3h 6c. The Australian starts behind in a race for one of the few occasions at this final table. The flop hits both players – 3d 4c Kc – putting Sehlstedt ahead. The turn is a 5d, and the river Jd and we’ll be playing some more.

Hand 106: Eric Assadourian

Button: Assadourian (seat 6) – Assadourian raises 25,000, and Sehlstedt calls. The flop is Kd 7s 4c (check check) 8h, Sehlstedt checks, Assadourian bets 30,000 and Sehlstedt calls. The river is Ad, Sehlstedt checks again, Assadourian bets 75,000 and Sehlstedt calls. Assadourian’s pair of eights are good, and he is now in an almost insurmountable chip lead. Sehlstedt has just 23,000 in chips remaining.

Hand 105: Eric Assadourian

Button: Sehlstedt (seat 4) – This time, Assadourian makes the same bet post-flop and makes it two out of two.

Hand 104: Eric Assadourian

Button: Assadourian (seat 6) – Assadourian raises 15,000 pre-flop and wins the pot.

Hand 103: Bo Sehlstedt

Button: Sehlstedt (seat 4) – The heads-up duel is about to kick-off between reigning NZ poker champion Eric Assadourian of Sydney, Australia and Bo Sehlstedt, one of the most respected poker figures in his homeland of Sweden. Blinds will start at 5000/10,000 (there are 29 minutes left at this level). Assadourian has 772,000 in chips, Sehlstedt has 181,000, but it’s the Swede who takes the first pot.
