Viacheslav Buldygin opened to 14,000 from early position. Pavlo Veksler called from the cutoff before Guillaume Nolet three-bet jammed for 142,939 from the small blind. Buldygin called and Veksler folded.
The board gave both players top pair and Buldygin eliminated Nolet with a better kicker.
A few hands later, Buldygin was back at it again.
This time, Wei Zhao opened to 15,400 from the hijack and called off for 292,876 after Buldygin jammed from the small blind.
The board paired Zhao but this wasn't good enough with Buldygin improving to a set.
