Hand #1: In the first hand of the day, it was folded to Aliaksei Boika on the small blind and he completed with {10-Spades}{4-Diamonds} and Mats Karlsson checked his {8-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}.

The flop came down {Q-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} and Boika check-folded to a bet from the chipleader.

Hand #2: From first position, Dmitry Yurasov raised it up but folded when Aliaksei Boika threw in a three-bet from the button.

Hand #3: When folded to him, Peter Ockenden raised to 130,000 from the small blind with {A-Spades}{K-Clubs}. Dmitry Yurasov called with {A-Hearts}{8-Hearts}.

The flop came down {6-Spades}{9-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} and Ockenden checked. Yurasov paired his eight and bet 125,000. Ockenden made the call and the {9-Diamonds} fell on the turn. It was checked to Yurasov again and his 260,000-bet was called by Ockenden.

The river was the {10-Diamonds} and it was checked to showdown and Yurasov won the first serious pot of the day.

Hand #4: Mats Karlsson had {10-Spades}{6-Spades} and from the cutoff, he made it 110,000 to go. On his left, Peter Ockenden found {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts} and he made a three-bet to 280,000. Dmitry Yurasov and Elie Saad folded their blinds and Karlsson folded as well.

Hand #5: From first position, Aliaksei Boika raised to 150,000 with {K-Clubs}{Q-Spades}. To his immediate left chipleader Mats Karlsson made a three-bet to 250,000 while holding {6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}. It was folded back to Boika and he let his hand go.

Hand #6: Action folded to Elie Saad on the button, who raised to 110,000 with {Q-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}. Aliaksei Boika defended his big blind with {Q-Hearts}{6-Spades}.

The board of {K-Clubs}{9-Spades}{6-Clubs}{A-Spades}{3-Hearts} got checked down all the way, giving Boika the winner with his pair of sixes.
