With a little of 20,000 in the pot and a board reading , Niel Mittelman checked from the small blind and Canada's Pouliot Serge moved all in for 17,000 from the button. It did the trick as Mittelman released his hand. Serge chipped up to 37,000 while Mittelman preserved his 17,200 stack.
A couple tables over, there was 9,000 in the pot and a board reading when Olivier Busquet checked from the small blind and 2016 GPI Player of the Year David Peters bet 5,200 from the cutoff. Busquet gave it some thought, but ultimately released his hand. With that, Peters is up to 36,000 while Busquet fell to 27,500.
Finally, over at Table 9, Pawel Zielony raised to 400 from early position and Vojtech Ruzicka, who if you recall finished fifth in the 2016 World Series of Poker Main Event back in November, three-bet to 1,400 from the hijack. The Netherlands' Arjen Hulskotte flatted from the cutoff, the button and blinds all folded, and Zielony put in the additional 1,000 to see a flop.
Two checks saw Hulskotte bet 2,000, and both Zielony and Ruzicka folded. Ruzicka fell to 33,000 after the hand while Hulskotte got back to the 30,000 starting stack.
