Haletky Battles for $87k


A single cash for $5,122 from the $565 buyin WSOP Colossus six weeks ago is what made up Jaime Haletky's poker resume coming in to the 2016 Ante Up World Championships $500,000 guaranteed $1,650 Main Event.

He made Day 2 with 93,000 - 12BB - good for 60th place out of the 70 players who made Day 2. He worked that up to a half-million stack and 10/27 on the 3-table redraw, and was 8/9 with 745,000 as final table play began.

Haletky stayed out of the way through much of the final table, chipping up without drawing a lot of attention to himself, climbing to more than 2 million and holding there until heads-up play began.

Despite being a 5-1 underdog when HU play started, Haletky worked his way back and took the lead, finding himself soon a single card away from the title. Rivered trips cut him down to 4BB, and he played back to a 3-1 deficit before falling Q9 > QT on a A-Q-3-2-J board on the final hand.

Jaime Haletky - 2nd place - $87,636

That wraps up 18 days and 20 tournaments with $1,000,000 offered in guarantees for the 2016 Ante Up World Championships.

Aces Craccc... um,


Jaime Haletky moves all in on the Q-7-6 board, holding AA, but he's behind to 6-7- ... until a Q lands on the turn, that is, giving him a larger two pair, and now Haletky is up to nearly 4 million chips and a 3-1 deficit.

Haletky Comes Back to .. Hold on


He doubled once, he doubled twice, he grabbed th chiplead and now Jaime Haletky is one card away from being the 2016 Ante Up World Champion.

He moves all in on a 5-9-6-4 board and gets a call.

Haletky is holding 9-T for top pair and is called by 5-8 for second pair and a gutshot-to-the-7 draw

the river is .....

5 ...

Trips ... 

Haletky is down to 4BB, but he doubles with a flush on the next hand and is back to 1,000,000

Haletky Aims for $124,940


Jaime Haletky starts heads-up play a substantial short stack - down 10.8 million to 1.6 million - but that doesn't seem to slow him down as he doubles KQ>K9 on the first hand of Heads-up play for the Ante Up World Championship and $124,940 top prize.

Haletky doubles three hands later AQ>A7 and he's now looking at even-stacks for the win ..

Alan Snow - 3rd Place - $56,355


Alan Snow is faced with a decision for his tournament life on a  board, and Snow makes the call.
Snow has A3 for third pair and a draw to a 5 for a straight, unfortunately Seat 4 is already there with 4-5 for the straight. Snow is looking for a 5 for a chop, but it does not arrive.

Alan Snow - 3rd Place - $56,355

3-Handed Chipcounts



8.5 million - Seat 4
2.2 million- Jaime Haletky

Phil Rhodes - 4th Place - $37,489


Phil Rhodes moves all in preflop for his tournament life, and is called by the overwhelming chipleader in Seat 4.

Rhodes - KT
Seat 4 - A7

The drama ends rather fast with the A in the window to go with 5-6 on the flop. The board runs out 5-7 and Rhodes is 4th today, cashing for $37,489, while the chipleader now has 9 million of the 12.4 million in play - and a chop is being discussed.
