Hand #21: Mats Karlsson picked up {10-Spades}{8-Spades} under the gun and opened up the action with a raise to 110,000. Elie Saad called with {K-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} out of the small blind.

The {Q-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{8-Hearts} flop gave Karlsson two pair and he took down the pot with a bet of 175,000.

Hand #22: Aliaksei Boika opened to 150,000 with {A-Spades}{8-Diamonds} from the small blind. Mats Karlsson three-bet to 500,000 with {8-Spades}{5-Spades} from the big blind. Boika folded his hand and Karlsson dragged another pot.

Hand #23: Aliaksei Boika opened to 110,000 with {9-Spades}{6-Hearts} on the button and Peter Ockenden defended the big blind with {J-Diamonds}{5-Spades}. Boika flopped middle pair on a {K-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{2-Spades} flop and both players checked.

On the {2-Hearts} turn, Ockenden led out with a small bet of 80,000 and Boika quickly called. Ockenden tried to buy it again on the {8-Hearts} river, this time with a potsized bet of 425,000. That price was too steep for Boika, who folded the best hand.

Hand #24: Elie Saad folded {A-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} from under the gun. Aliaksei Boika raised to 125,000 with {A-Hearts}{8-Spades} from the cutoff. Peter Ockenden called from the small blind with {2-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and Dmitry Yurasov called from the big blind with {K-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}.

The flop {Q-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{8-Hearts} improved Boika, who continued with 135,000. Both blinds quickly folded their hands.
