Two-Tier Beginning And a Memorable Ending"
With Andrew N.S. Glazer, "The Poker Pundit"
World Series of Poker
1/2 Limit Hold’em-1/2 Seven-Card Stud
$165,640 Prize Pool
never seen a final table like this,” guest announcer Vince
Burgio remarked as he examined the line-up for the 1/2 limit
hold-em-1/2 seven-card stud finale. “There should be one
table for the short stacks and another for the big ones.” This
was indeed a two-tier table for the rich and for the poor. Four
of the players had between $4,000 and $8,700 and the other four
had between $32,300 and $48,400. In other words, the shortest
of the big stacks had 25 percent more than all the little ones
combined. It seemed like an easy table to handicap, at least
for the early stages, and for the most part it went that way.
But there were lots of surprises, twists and turns in this exciting
event, capped by a 51-hand heads-up match between …
No, wait! Andy Glazer has reminded me that many readers prefer to
be kept in suspense and not have their fun spoiled by being told
that the butler did it in the headline and first sentence. So I will
forego my usual style and, while I may not be able to match the substance
and in-depth analysis that Andy offers in his inimitable reports,
I will at least attempt to follow the format. Actually, this is a
tag-team effort. Andy stopped by the tournament area toward the latter
stages, was mesmerized by the final match-up and added a “special
bonus coverage” located at the end of this article.
THE RICH AND THE POOR
Here is the starting line-up for this initially mismatched match.
|1 Dean Shulman
|2 Thor Hansen
|3 Kevin Song
|4 Diego Cordovez
|5 Andrew Hallenbeck
|6 Jimmy Cha
|7 Humberto Brenes
|8 Chris Ferguson
OK, five bracelet-holders including a world champion and 10
bracelets total. Not a bad field. We started at level 10. The
first game was seven-card stud, with $200 antes, $300 low-card
bring in and $1,000-$2,000 limits, 16:56 remaining and $178,300
in play. The first hand saw three-way action. Kevin Song folded
on fifth street and Chris “Jesus” Ferguson dropped
out on sixth when Diego Cordovez bet with a board of 6-10-7-2. “The
D Train” picked up a 16k pot, and while he hadn’t
joined the rich folk yet, he wasn’t poor anymore either.
Call him middle-class.
ONE GONE QUICKLY
On hand three, businessman Jimmy “Jimmy Jimy” Cha
looked at pocket kings. Starting lowest-chipped with $6,000,
he hadn’t much choice but to push his hand all the way,
and that’s what he did. He put his last few hundred in
on sixth street and never helped. Humberto Brenes of Costa
Rica, 28th WSOP all time, with 21 money finishes, went in with
5-8/A, paired his 5 on fourth street and made a second 7 on
the river to cut the field to seven. Cha took home $4,960 for
Hand eight was only the second one to go to the river when
Dean Shulman’s split queens held up to beat Kevin Song’s
two queens. This was the 10th money finish for Song, a WSOP
limit hold’em winner, who was returning to action after
a year’s hiatus to take care of personal business.
On hand 11, the game reverted to hold’em, with $1,000-$1,500
blinds, playing $1,500-$3,000. On hand 13, Andrew Hallenbeck,
making his first WSOP cash-in raised, Ferguson raised and Shulman
three-bet it with K-K. With a 9-9-7-2 board, Hallenbeck bet
and Chris folded. Andrew picked up a 16.5k pot and Chris lost
his starting chip lead to Brenes. But Jesus rose to regain
his lead on the next hand by winning a $25,000 pot against
Song. Chris had 7-7, Kevin A-J. Chris opened for 3k and Kevin
three-bet it from the small blind with A-J. A board of 10-9-3-8
gave Chris a straight draw and Kevin a higher straight draw.
Kevin also had two overcards, but a jack would have given Chris
the straight. On the other hand, a 7 would have given Chris
a set, but Kevin a straight. Anyway, Chris was about an 80
percent favorite and his 7s held held up when the board paired
D TRAIN IS NEAR DERAILEMENT
An eyeball count two hands later showed Chris hanging onto
a slight lead over Humberto, while D Train was nearly off the
tracks with 8k.
Chris Ferguson: $44,000
Humberto Brenes: $40,000
Thor Hansen: $35,000
Kevin Song: $25,000
Dean Shulman: $24,000
Andrew Hallenbeck: $3,500
Diego Cordovez: $8,000
A few hands later, Hallenbeck went all in before the flop
for $1,400 in four-way action, flopped a set of queens and
got to stick around for a while.
BACK ON THE FAST TRACK
Suddenly the D Train, who had picked up a few chips a few
hands before, shoved in the throttle all the way.
Hand 22: Against Thor Hansen, the pot is three-bet. Diego bets the flop of
K-K-10. A jack turns, Diego bets, Hansen folds.
Hand 23: Diego opens for 3k, Humberto three-bets. Flop is
10-10-6. Diego bets. Turn is an 8. Humberto bets, Diego raises,
Hand 24: Flop is 10d, 8h, 9s. Diego bets, Chris raises. Turn
is 9s. River is As. Chris checks, Diego bets, Chris folds.
Hand 25: Diego raises, Humberto makes it $4,500. Flop is Q-A-7.
Diego checks, Humberto bets, Diego check-raises. Turn is an
8, second club. Diego bets, Humberto raises. River is a 10.
Diego has K-J for the nut straight. He checks, but Humberto
with A-K of clubs, has missed his flush and isn’t biting.
The D Train, now going about 150 mph, wins five hands in a
row and takes the chip lead with about $55,000.
On hand 26, Song opened under the gun with A-K. Hallenbeck,
who never had many chips, called all in for $1,400 and so did
Hansen, holding K-K. The board of 9-4-2-A-6 was checked down,
and Song’s paired ace won. Hallenbeck, mucking without
showing his hand, settled for seventh place and $6,620 in his
first WSOP cash-out. On the next hand, Hansen, who hadn’t
been able to do much, got drawn out again. He had A-K to Brenes’ K-J.
The flop was K-Q-2, leaving Humberto dead to a jack or a back-door
straight. A jack turned and Humberto, going all in on the river,
HOW DID PHIL GET INTO THIS?
At this point, announcer Burgio mentioned that when Ferguson
won his third bracelet, he fastened all three together to make
a gold hatband for his black western hat (no doubt the world’s
most valuable hat band). With his fourth bracelet this year,
he might make a belt, Burgio suggested. What, he wondered,
could be made with five linked bracelets? “A headband
for Phil Hellmuth,” someone in the audience cracked,
breaking everybody up. Hellmuth may or may not be the world’s
best poker player, but he’s certainly poker’s best
comic straight man.
A couple of hands later D train threw some more coals on the
fire. On hand 35, Shuman opened for 3k from late position,
Song raised from the button and Cordovez made it 4.5k from
the small blind. On a 8-6-2 flop, Diego bet and got two calls.
He bet the turn-card deuce and Shulman called. He got another
call on the river and took the pot with pocket queens. On the
next hand, Shulman went all in for $1,700 with 6d, 5d. A flop
of 9-6-4 gave him a pair of sixes, but Cordovez had pocket
7s and won again. Shulman finished sixth for $8,280, and Diego,
one of the original short stacks, now had close to 80k and
a sizeable lead.
ONLY BRACELET HOLDERS ALLOWED
The five players left are all bracelet holders. In addition
to Ferguson, Hansen holds two, Song and Cordovez have one each
and Brenes has two.
Meanwhile, Hansen, the likeable pro from Oslo, Norway, had
been quietly going downhill. On hand 35, when Chris opened
on the button for 3k, Thor decided to take his chances with
9-7 of diamonds and called for his last $2,500. D Train, with
lots of chips, also called from the big blind with Q-2 offsuit.
A queen flopped, Diego’s paired lady won and Thor collected
his $9,940 for fifth place.
A rough chip count now showed:
DIEGO KNOWS HOLD’EM
Diego’s specialty is limit holdem, and a few hands later
he demonstrated his ability to read opponents. Song, on the
button, held Q-J and had an open-end straight draw on a flop
of K-10-5. When a 3-2 then was dealt, he tried a bluff bet
on the end, but Diego picked him off with just A-high. He won
yet another pot against Brenes when he flopped a king to his
A-K, but then …
THE TRAIN SLOWS
The rushing D Train hit his first big red flag on hand 48.
Ferguson, who had been playing rather conservatively, hoping,
he later explained, to last as long as possible, now began
to open up. On hand 48 he button-raised with just K-2. Kevin
and Diego called. He bet the flop of A-7-2 and Diego, holding
an ace, check-raised. A 3 turned and Chris bet with just
a paired deuce against Diego’s aces. The river brought
what seemed to Diego a safe deuce. He bet, Chris raised and
showed a startled Cordovez his three ducks.
Earlier, Diego had picked off an attempted bluff by song.
Now, on hand 53, Song returned the favor. Kevin had A-5 in
the small blind, Diego 9-6 in the big blind. Diego raised a
flop of Q-3-2, bet a turn-card queen and then a river trey.
Puzzled, Song finally called with his winning ace-high.
A few hands later, Chris got unexpected dividends from overplaying
his K-2 earlier. With a board of 8h, 7h, 4h, Kc, Song had a
king and the best hand. But he checked because, he later explained,
he remembered Chris’ hand and feared he could have anything.
What Chris had was Ad, Jh, and a river heart gave hi a winning
flush. Right after that, Cordovez folded when Song bet into
a Q-9-2-4-K board and lost his lead as Ferguson edged past
him. The approximate count was:
BACK TO STUD
Stud now came in on hand 58. Antes were $300 with $600 bring-in
and $2,000-$4,000 limits. Six hands went by without a contested
pot. Finally, Chris, showing 3-5-J-Q against Diego’s
8-7-K-K, made jacks and fives to move up to $84,000. Song
had taken over second place with 46k while Cordovez had 37k
and Brenes was down to 12k. But the Costa Rican got well
again on hand 69 in what began as a three-way pot. Song had
started with A-K/10, had a flush and inside straight draw
on fifth street but missed everything. Brenes, starting with
split jacks, made two pair on that same fifth street, went
all in on the river and won.
Chris then proceeded to win hand 75 with aces and 9s against
Kevin, and again with the same cards two hands later. On that
hand, Kevin was Down to $1,500 and went all in with a door-card
8. Diego and Humberto both folded on fifth street, and the
remaining hands were turned up. Kevin had 10-7/8, Chris K-9/A.
Chris caught a 9 on fifth and an ace on the river while the
best that Kevin could do was pair his 8. He got $11,580 for
Chris now had a monster lead of about $110,000 to roughly
$33,000 each for Diego and Humberto.
WHO’S TONY CURTIS?
There was a stir of excitement as Nolan Dalla, who’s
handling press relations, report writing and broadcasting duties
for Binion’s, announced that actor Tony Curtis had strolled
onto the premises, reportedly looking for a $4-$8 game. But
there were more important things at hand, and attention immediately
returned to the ongoing battle, now three-handed. In a few
more hands it became two-handed. On hand 85, Brenes, showing
10-3-K-8, sighed and folded with Chris bet out showing 8-7-J-6.
Chris then sent him away on the next hand. Humburto had A-Q/A-5-4
and went all in. Chris had J-8/8-4-A. Once again Chris drew
out by hitting a two-pair jack on the river while Humberto
died with his split aces. He took home $19,860.
THE MARATHON BEGINS
Heads-up, Chris held a 2.4-1 lead, 132k-55k, but Diego had
no intentions of lying down for Jesus. The first action hand
came on hand 98 when Diego bet the river showing 10-6-3-4,
Chris raised whoing 8-7-2-9 and Diego folded with about $23,500
The count hadn’t changed much when it went to hold’em,
$3,000-$6,000 limits. Four hands later, on the 106th hand,
Chris had A-K, Diego A-A, and the pot was five-bet before the
flop. (The only time unlimited raising is allowed is when only
two players are left.) Chris was close to drawing dead on a
flop of J-4-3. Diego bet blind for fourth street and the river,
going all in, and won a pot of close to 40k. Chopping away
relentlessly, Chris had his opponent down to $15,000 on hand
128 by check-raising a flop of K-Q-2 and getting Diego to fold.
By hand 142 Diego was back up to 30k when Chris tried a check-raise
bluff into a Q-9-5 flop, then folded when Cordovez bet out
after a king and three were dealt. Diego probably saved some
chips a few hands later when Chris made a flush on the river.
Chris, holding 10h, 9c, flopped a straight when the board came
8-7-6 with two clubs. But then two more clubs fell and Diego
folded when Chris bet.
UP AND DOWN – AND THEN OUT
As action continued, Cordovez climbed to $68,000, then plunged
back down to $28,000. The back-breaker came on hand 155. Chris
raised with 8-6, Cordovez played back at him with just 5-4.
A flop of 10-7-6 gave Diego an open-end straight and Chris
a pair of 6s with an inside straight draw. Pushing his draw,
Diego bet and was called. A deuce came on the turn. Still pressing,
Diego bet, and Chris, trying to represent a big hand, three-bet
on his semi-bluff draw hand. A nine on the river gave Chris
his inside straight. It was also a third diamond, and could
have made a higher straight, so when Diego tried one last desperation
bet, Chris only called.
Still, the damage was done because Diego was now down to just
$13,000. On the next and last hand, Chris held Kh, 9d to Diego’s
Ah, 7s. The pot was three-bet before the flop. When the board
came K-Q-8, Diego bet, and then bet all in on a turn-card 7.
Only an ace could now save Diego. A trey came on the river,
and Chris had bracelet number five, his second in WSOP 2003
to date. Asked to answer Vince Burgio’s question about
what he could make with five of them, he replied, “I’m
planning on a sash – we’ll see.”
He played tribute to Cordovez as one of the greatest hold’em
players in the world. “There are no chinks in his armor,” he
Asked whether the split-game format bothered him, he said
that while he had trouble with mixed games such as H.O.R.S.E.that
required frequent switching of gears, half stud and half hold’em
didn’t bother him. While hold’em drew the greatest
players in the world, he explained, he felt that he would be
a bigger favorite in the stud end, giving him, on balance,
As for an overview and analysis of the tournament, let’s
leave that to Andy.
Guys Don’t Finish Last"
Addendum by Andrew N.S. Glazer, "The Poker Pundit"
In the boring (to everyone else) and painful (to me) saga
of my back woes, I had to pass both on covering the entire
final table in the ½ Hold’em, ½ Stud Event
here at the WSOP and on playing the $2,500 no-limit event.
Nonetheless, a little voice in my head told me to go downstairs
at about 6:50 pm, to see that all was well with Max and his
story, and my eyes opened wide when I saw the two finalists
(I hadn’t even known who was going to be at the final
As you’ve already seen from Max’s story, I saw
Diego Cordovez taking on Chris “Jesus” Ferguson
for the title, and pain or no pain, I had to stay to the conclusion.
Why “had to?” Because I immediately realized that
if I were creating a list of the nicest people in the poker
world, these would be two of my top three picks. Before I made
it a top three, I realized I needed to make it a top four,
with Erik Seidel and John Juanda the other two.
THAT’S A LOT OF BONES
This doesn’t mean I’m not close friends with many
others, or that I don’t consider others “nice” (the
word that I hated to hear when dating). There are a lot of
other wonderful people in the poker world. In fact, I’m
probably closer with Phil Hellmuth than with any of these four.
It’s just that Phil, like me and the others I care about,
can slip occasionally. It’s just that these four don’t
appear to have a mean bone anywhere in their bodies, and if
my anatomical memories are correct, that means zero for 824
I could have entered my feelings about this match-up in the
dictionary under “ambivalent,” because I couldn’t
stand the thought of either of them losing.
You’re probably more familiar with Ferguson, the 2000
World Champion who is probably better known outside the poker
world by his sobriquet, “JESUS” (he feels it should
be capitalized). One look at his hair and face will tell you
from whence the nickname sprung.
Ferguson won two bracelets in 2000, and another one in 2001.
Coming into this year’s WSOP, though, he’d been “running
bad,” as the adverbially adverse poker crowd says.
(“Badly” would be grammatically correct, just
as “playing well” is correct rather than “playing
good,” but you’ll rarely hear either of the correct
expressions from anyone in poker. It’s not a matter of
education or not knowing what’s right: it’s just
You already know that Chris won, his second bracelet of this
WSOP, and in the aftermath, I wanted to know more about the
winless streak and the turnaround.
YOU CAN’T CONTROL THE CARDS, BUT YOU CAN CONTROL
HOW YOU PLAY THEM
“I never felt that I was playing badly,” he said,
stunning me with the correct grammar, “but the cards
just weren’t running the right way. I hadn’t won
a tournament in a year and a half before I won six days ago.
That’s more than a hundred tournaments. Lately it’s
been even worse: coming into the Series, I’d probably
made only one final table in the last 30 events I’d entered.
But if there’s one place to turn the way you’re
running around, it’s the World Series. I can’t
imagine anywhere else I’d want to win as much. There
are a lot of other big money tournaments on the circuit these
days, but the World Series is unique.”
Had he changed anything about the way he was playing – after
all, zero wins in 100+ tournaments, and suddenly two in six
days, and at the WSOP, no less….
“I don’t think I’ve changed anything,” he
said. “It’s possible, I suppose, but I really made
an effort to play my best even when the cards weren’t
there. I’ve seen a lot of people’s games deteriorate
when they aren’t getting the cards and then they aren’t
in a position to take advantage when the cards finally come
back around. I might be a little more focused here, but mostly
I think I’ve just been hit with the deck.”
DÉJÀ VU, ANYONE?
Chris had raised his arms in victory in almost exactly the
same fashion as when he won the Big One in 2000, and he was
quite emotional in the aftermath, hugging many friends and
supporters. “It just means so much to win here,” he
said. “A fifth bracelet is really special.”
Another reporter wanted to know if Ferguson thought he could
tie the record by winning a third bracelet at this Series (the
record is indeed three, curiously enough set and tied in the
same year, 1993, by Phil Hellmuth and Ted Forrest).
“It’s at least possible now,” he said. “I’d
never predict a win, but you can’t get three until you
have two, and I’d love to see it happen.”
HE GOT LUCKY…IT WAS A BAD BEAT…OH, HECK,
HE WAS JUST BETTER
I’d first met Chris when we were opponents in a heads-up
match-play tournament in Los Angeles, well before he was famous,
and he’d told me then, in the aftermath of his (grrr)
comeback win, that he’d practiced heads-up matches quite
a bit with one friend. Was he still practicing that way?
“A little,” he said, “but I get almost all
of my heads-up practice playing online. It’s so easy
to find opponents and stay in tune that way. It’s pretty
hard to get heads-up practice in actual tournaments – you
have to get to the final two to do it!”
He’s done pretty well in his heads-up duels at the WSOP:
he’s been in that situation six times and won five.
“I’d like to mention one other thing,” said
the computer science Ph.D. “I want to mention my ‘professional
sweater,’ Perry Friedman. He’s sweated (sat and
rooted for) me for every one of my bracelets. Annie Duke even
paid him to sweat Erik Seidel the other day when he won. Perry
was going to leave yesterday, but I offered to pay for his
room if he stayed, and he’s coming along to a very nice
dinner celebration tonight.”
SO THAT’S WHY HE GOT THE DOCTORATE
So much for the coolly analytical Ferguson being above superstition!
Cordovez isn’t exactly an unknown – he already
has a bracelet, as did each of the top five finishers, which
made for some tough competition, and he won the most money
anyone has ever won in a limit hold’em tournament when
he took down more than $561,000 at the Commerce last year,
and was the cover boy for Card Player Magazine.
(Kathy Liebert “technically” won a million dollars
at the Party Poker Million, but between the 8-way deal made
at the final table, the 4-way deal made later, and the percentage
owed to her backers, her actual take home number was less than
$250,000 – possibly less than $200,000.)
Cordovez also has a storied heads-up history. Until last year,
when he lost to Johnny Chan (on a bad beat) in the semi-finals
of the “bracelet-holders only” heads-up match play
at the WSOP, he literally had not lost a heads-up match in
ten years. Whenever he got to the final twosome, he’d
LET’S GET THIS STRAIGHT…THIRD IS BETTER
“Second place is the worst,” he told me. “Third
place is fun and fine. You’ve had a good run, won a lot
of money, and gotten your name up there. Once you get to the
final two, though, especially at the World Series, you really want the title. Chances to win tournaments don’t come
along that frequently and when you get that close you want
to finish the job.”
I’ve often said that I’ve found my ideal job because
I love writing and I love poker, so I’m making my living
doing something I’d continue to do if I suddenly became
independently wealthy. Cordovez is now involved in something
similar, although he put it more eloquently.
“I’ve just started a company in the last two months,
called Advanced Gaming Applications,” he said. “Our
goal is to produce the finest Internet gaming and poker software
and payment system in the world. I’ve spent many years
in the business world and many in the poker world, so this
is an ideal job for me, getting to combine my vocation with
(Between this vocation/avocation comment and Ferguson’s
proper use of “badly,” I was getting grammatically
overwhelmed. Given the success these two players have enjoyed
in recent years, perhaps they’ll start a trend amongst
poker players. Ah, to dream the impossible dream….)
Aside from the hypnotic fascination I experienced the moment
I’d seen it was Cordovez vs. Ferguson, I wanted to watch
this match-up for educational purposes. After all, each of
them had such a tremendous heads-up record, I thought I could
learn a thing or two hundred.
Ferguson had a substantial chip lead, which didn’t leave
Cordovez with much room to maneuver. Still, he seemed the more
aggressive of the two, and I asked him about that.
“JESUS” SPEAKS: GRAB A PEN!
“I’m not sure I was the more aggressive player
overall,” he said (and I hadn’t seen the entire
heads-up match, just the last half of it, so my impression
could have been wrong). “I think I was the more aggressive
player after the flop, and before the flop, Chris might have
been more aggressive.” (Again, that wasn’t my impression – I
only saw Cordovez limp in from the small blind on the button
once or twice – every other hand was a raise or an occasional
I asked Ferguson about his take on the need for heads-up aggression.
Get out your notebooks: his answer provided the kind of analysis
that top players rarely give away for free.
“Tournament strategy changes at different phases,” he
began. “Early in the tournament, the most important thing
is to survive. You don’t want to take big risks, because
what you stand to gain is rarely as much as what you stand
to lose, at that stage.
“Later in the tournament, especially when you get heads-up,
that strategy changes dramatically. It’s vitally important
to push any small edge you have. You have to take risks, because
you can’t wait around for big hands. Value-betting becomes
much more important, and you really have to push hard if you
think you have any kind of edge in a hand.”
Indeed, it was such a moment that probably decided the tournament,
on a hand close to the end where Ferguson already had about
a 5-2 chip lead. Cordovez had the 5h-4h, and found himself
looking at a 10-7-6 flop. He had an open-ended straight draw,
and he pushed hard, including a check-bet-raise-re-raise sequence
later on the turn where Ferguson had to be wary of a straight
or a flush draw.
It was about as big a push as you could make, but Cordovez
had one problem: Ferguson already had the straight, so his “fear” was
limited to the chance that he and Cordovez might have the same
hand, or that Cordovez might be semi-bluffing with a flush
DON’T RAISE WHEN YOU’LL ONLY GET CALLED WHEN YOU’RE
“I almost re-raised him there, but the pot was already
pretty big, and without another re-raise, I had a chance to
get more of his chips on the river,” Ferguson said. “But
then the flush card came on the river, and when Diego led out,
I figured there was no point in raising. If he had the flush,
I was going to have to pay off another bet, and if he didn’t
have the flush or the straight, he probably wasn’t going
to call. I guess there were some hands he might have called
with on the end, like a set, but just calling there seemed
like the best move.”
Ferguson was correct; Cordovez’s 5h-4h amounted only
to five-high on the river, and he couldn’t have called
a raise, while if he’d had the flush, Ferguson would
indeed have suddenly been in rough shape, probably (I couldn’t
count exactly) even trailing in the match.
Ah, the randomness of poker. Cordovez’s suited hand
could just as easily have been the right suit instead of the
wrong one, and had that happened, they might still have been
playing even as I write this.
Instead, Chris “JESUS” Ferguson has his fifth
bracelet, and Cordovez is left with the bittersweet taste of
a rare second-place finish. No matter how the cards were going
to fall, though, I felt like I’d been treated to a clinic
in “give no quarter and ask for no quarter” poker,
and the poker world got still more proof that you don’t
have to be vicious to win.
Not that I didn’t like the other finalists – actually,
I rather like several of the other players at the final table – but
the two nice guys finished first. That’s the kind of
story that makes my own vocation/avocation even more fun. Thanks
for the lessons, guys, and even more than that, thanks for
