Jiachen Gong

Jiachen Gong was under the gun and raised to 2,800. Action folded around to Aleks Dimitrov in the cutoff and he three-bet to 7,400. Gong called.

The flop came {k-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{8-Spades} and Gong checked. Dimitrov paused for a moment and decided to check back.

The turn was the {4-Hearts}. Gong led out for 12,500. Dimitrov didn't think long before calling.

The river was the {2-Hearts}. Gong went into the tank and eventually led out for 21,000. Dimitrov called fairly quickly, but found out he was dominated when Gong tabled {k-Spades}{q-Hearts}.

Daniel Dvoress opened to 3,000 from middle position and Sam Chartier, who had just bought in and was playing his first hand, three-bet to 8,200 from the cutoff. Small blind Rafael Moraes cold four-bet to 25,000 with about 61,000 behind.

Action was back on Dvoress after the big bind folded and he pushed forward a stack worth well over 100,000 to put both players to the test. Chartier had 49,800 to start the hand after paying the 200 ante and called all in. Moraes tanked for a bit before tossing his cards into the muck.

Daniel Dvoress: {A-Spades}{K-Spades}
Sam Chartier: {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}

"You got spades," Chartier said.

"If it makes you feel any better," McDonald added, "I had spades."

The board ran out {K-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{5-Hearts} and Dvoress parted ways with a big portion of his chips.

Stuer Isn't Staying

Nível 9 : 600-1,200, 200 ante

Action folded around to Pedro Idrovo in the cutoff and he raised to 3,000. Julian Stuer was in the small blind and he decided to three-bet to 11,100. Idrovo called.

The flop came {j-Hearts}{5-Spades}{3-Hearts} and Stuer led out for 7,500. Idrovo called.

The turn was the {7-Diamonds}. Stuer checked this time, and Idrovo bet 10,000. Stuer called.

The river was the {a-Hearts}. Stuer quickly checked and Idrovo thought for a full minute before deciding to move all in. Stuer thought about it and called.

"I have an ace," said Idrovo, tabling {a-Diamonds}{4-Spades}. Stuer looked disappointed and mucked his cards, sending him to the rail.

Bonomo didn't need long to make up his mind and he shoved for 19,900. Jacobson called.

Justin Bonomo: {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}
Martin Jacobson: {A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}
