Huge Laydown from Mateos

Nível 8 : 400-800, 100 ante

Dmytro Shuvanov checked from the big blind on an {a-Spades}{3-Hearts}{k-Hearts} flop, and Adrian Mateos bet 1,500 in the next seat. Shuvanov called, and Mateos bet a further 5,700 on the {10-Spades} turn. Shuvanov responded with a raise to 15,000. Mateos thought awhile and then mucked {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} face-up, but Shuvanov did not show.

Moreau and Banic Double; Varnell Thriving

Nível 8 : 400-800, 100 ante

Craig Varnell confirmed a big double through Ivan Banic to leave the latter short. According to Varnell, he four-bet to 20,000 and Banic just called after having three-bet to 8,000. Varnell bet a {A-}{J-}{10-} flop from the hijack for 23,000 and picked up a call before shoving the {9-} turn for 20,000 with {J-}{10-}. Banic called with {A-}{Q-} and the {6-} river bricked.

Picking up the live action after, Alexandre Moreau defended the big blind against Walid Bou Habib and the duo checked down the {J-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{4-Hearts} flop and the {Q-Diamonds} turn. On the {10-Hearts} river, Moreau somehow got his stack of 38,500 in with {9-Hearts}{2-Hearts} and Bou Habib mucked ace-king for the nut straight after having paid off his opponent.

Then, Banic got his short stack in with {K-Spades}{10-Diamonds} and initial raiser Stephen Woodhead called the extra chips with {J-Hearts}{6-Hearts}. The board ran out {9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{K-Hearts} and Banic stayed in.

Among those that were less fortunate and ran out of chips entirely were Bogdan Capitan, Vladas Tamasauskas, Anton Morgenstern and Anatoly Korochenskiy.

Aladin's Wish Doesn't Come Through

Nível 8 : 400-800, 100 ante

After some action preflop, three players saw a flop of {Q-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{8-Clubs} come down. Preflop aggressor Maxim Panyak flicked in a T-5,000 chip and bet a lesser amount. Aladin Reskallah raised to 8,500, which got the third player out. Panyak shoved 21,800 and Reskallah called instantly.

Maxim Panyak: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}
Aladin Reskallah: {A-Hearts}{10-Hearts}

Reskallah wished for a king, nine or heart, but despite his many outs the Frenchman failed to get there on the {4-Diamonds} turn and {5-Diamonds} river.

Vlasenko Finds a Double

Nível 8 : 400-800, 100 ante

In a three-way three-bet pot for 5,500 apiece, Salvatore Candido Graziano in the big blind, Bradley Marsh from early position and Preben Stokkan in the cutoff ended up checking down a board of {9-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}. Graziano showed the {A-Hearts}{K-Spades}, Marsh the {7-Diamonds}{7-Spades} and Stokkan won the pot with {A-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}.

One hand later, Ema Zajmovic raised to 1,500 on the button and short stack Martin Jacobson defended the big blind. On a flop of {A-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}, Jacobson checked and folded once Zajmovic had fired a bet worth 1,200.

Last but not least, Graziano raised to 1,600 a few hands later, in the new level already, and called the shove of short stack Andrey Vlasenko for 7,500.

Andrey Vlasenko: {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}
Salvatore Candido Graziano: {A-Spades}{J-Diamonds}

The board came {Q-Spades}{J-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{7-Spades} and Vlasenko kept his hopes alive. Below are also the updated counts for Dan Smith and Daniel Dvoress, who share the same table.

Hakim Snap-Calls for a Pile

Nível 8 : 400-800, 100 ante

A player in middle position had 4,500 in front of him on a {4-Spades}{7-Clubs}{4-Clubs} flop and was facing a check-raise to 11,500 from Jeff Hakim. That player decided on a reraise to 22,000, which Hakim quickly called. He checked the {6-Spades} and his opponent announced all in. Hakim beat him into the pot and turned over {4-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} for quads.

"That's not good," Hakim's deadpanned, turning over {j-Spades}{10-Spades} for a flush draw that was drawing dead.

After the {a-Clubs} hit on the river, Hakim dragged in his opponent's remaining 70,000.

"Why Do I Do This to Myself?"

Nível 8 : 400-800, 100 ante

After Nick Petrangelo opened early and got three callers for 1,400 at the previous level, Isaac Haxton made it 8,000 to go from the big blind. Petrangelo folded, but Peter Eichhardt, the first flat-caller, shoved all in. Action was back to Haxton, and he sighed as he thought.

"Why do I do this to myself?" he wondered aloud.

After a couple of minutes he mucked, saying he had two nines.

Demenkov and Haxton Build Stacks

Nível 7 : 300-600, 100 ante

PokerStars qualifier Vladimir Demenkov check-raised the {K-Hearts}{7-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{Q-Spades} turn out of the big blind from 2,800 to 7,000 and Bahram Chobineh called to see the {9-Hearts} appear on the river. Demenkov quickly bet 8,500 with 5,000 behind and Chobineh eventually called.

Demenkov turned over the {K-Spades}{7-Diamonds} for flopped two pair and that won the pot.

A few tables over, Vladas Tamasauskas raised to 1,400 in the hijack and Isaac Haxton called on the button, the big blind also came along. On the {K-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} flop, the action checked to Haxton and he bet 4,200. Only Tamasauskas called and checked again the {6-Spades} turn. Haxton made it 7,800 to go and his opponent eventually folded.
