Aliaksei Boika

Hand #18: From first position, Dmitry Yurasov raised to 110,000 with {8-Spades}{8-Clubs}. On the button, Aliaksei Boika picked up {K-Spades}{K-Diamonds} and he made a three-bet to 310,000.

Mats Karlsson and Peter Ockenden folded their blinds and it was back to Yurasov and he made the call. The flop was {A-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{5-Spades} and the ace did slow down the action as both players checked. The {J-Diamonds} hit the turn and Yurasov checked again and so did Boika.

The {4-Diamonds} river completed the board and it was checked to showdown and Yurasov took another small hit as Boika won the hand with his kings.

Hand #19: Elie Saad picked up {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} in first position and raised to 110,000. From the button, Mats Karlsson called with {J-Spades}{10-Hearts} and Peter Ockenden came along from the small blind with {K-Spades}{10-Diamonds}. Big blind Dmitry Yurasov was priced in and called with {8-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}.

The {8-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} gave Ockenden top pair and he out flopped Saad's queens. It was checked around to Karlsson who took a stab at it with {J-Spades}{10-Hearts}. Ockenden made the call and Yurasov and Saad folded.

The {A-Diamonds} fell on the turn and Ockenden checked and so did Karlsson. The river was the {9-Hearts}. Ockenden moved all in for 845,000 in total and Karlsson folded.

Hand #20: Aliaksei Boika picked up {a-Hearts}{10-Spades} and raised to 110,000. In the small blind, Dmitry Yurasov had him dominated holding {A-Diamonds}{Q-Spades} and he made the call.

Boika paired his kicker on the {7-Spades}{8-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} flop and Yurasov checked to him. Boika bet 140,000 and Yurasov let it go.
