Hands #12-15: Karlsson Gets Richer

• Nível 26: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Will Mats Karlsson Win the Trophy?

Hand #12: It was folded to Elie Saad on the button. The Lebanese, raised to 110,000 with {3-Spades}{4-Spades} and Mats Karlsson defended his big blind, holding {K-Clubs}{3-Hearts}.

The Swede connected with the {2-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} flop but checked. So did Saad. The {3-Diamonds} turn did pair Saad but he was drawing dead against Karlsson two pair.

Karlsson fired out a bet of 150,000 and Saad called to see the {5-Diamonds} hit the river. Karlsson counted out chips for a bet and made it 350,000. Saad thought about it for a few seconds before laying down his hand.

Hand #13: From first position, Dmitry Yurasov came in raising to 110,000. It was enough to win the blinds and antes.

Hand #14: Peter Ockenden completed the small blind with {9-Diamonds}{2-Spades} but folded when Dmitry Yurasov raised to 150,000 while holding {A-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}.

Hand #15: From the cutoff, Mats Karlsson raised to 110,000 with {K-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}. Peter Ockenden folded his button and Dmitry Yurasov laid down his big blind. Elie Saad called from the big blind with {A-Clubs}{6-Hearts}.

The flop was {5-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{9-Spades} and Saad check-folded to a 150,000-bet.
