Hands #67-69: Vela Flops a Set

Nível 29 : 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

Hand #67: Action folded to Michael Vela in the small blind and he limped in with {3-Spades}{3-Clubs}. Big blind Christian Harder checked {K-Clubs}{2-Spades} and the flop came {2-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}. Both checked and the {5-Diamonds} hit the turn. Vela checked again and Harder bet 100,000.

"Really?" Vela said right before he called.

The {2-Hearts} on the river saw Vela check again. Harder bet 350,000 and Vela called, showing the better full house.

Hand #68: Michael Vela on the button raised to 240,000 holding {K-Clubs}{9-Hearts}. Christian Harder called with {6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} in the small blind, Aleksei Opalikhin folded his big blind. Both checked on the {J-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} flop, {3-Diamonds} turn and {5-Clubs} river. Harder took down the small pot.

Hand #68: Christian Harder raised to 225,000 with {10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} on the button. Small blind Aleksei Opalikhin three-bet to 510,000 with {5-Spades}{5-Hearts} out of a 3.7 million stack. As Josephy folded his big blind, action was back on Harder and he four-bet to 985,000. Opalikhin tanked long and hard, sighed several times, and folded.

Hand #69: Christian Harder raised {A-Spades}{J-Hearts} to 240,000 from the cutoff. Big blind Michael Gentili defended with {Q-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}. The flop came {A-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} and Gentili check-called a bet of 200,000. The {10-Diamonds} on the turn saw Gentili check again, followed by a bet of 365,000 into 980,000 by Harder. Gentili, with a pair, gutshot and flush draw, called again, growing the pot to 1,710,000. The river {9-Clubs} did nothing for either and both players checked to see Harder take it down.
