In the first hand of a two-part Dario Minieri series, Maxim Lykov opened to 1,200 from middle position and was called by Minieri in from the cutoff. Everyone else folded.

The flop came {10-Clubs}{3-Spades}{7-Diamonds} and Lykov c-bet for 1,800. Minieri sat stoically for a bit and then pushed out a raise to 4,100. Lykov made the call.

The turn brought the {7-Clubs} and Lykov led right out for 5,100. Minieri let his hand go.

In the very next hand, Minieri opened to 1,200 from the hi-jack and was only called by the player on the button.

The flop came {Q-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{J-Hearts} and Minieri c-bet for 1,450. His opponent called.

The {4-Hearts} fell on the turn and Minieri fired again - this time for 2,650. His opponent came along.

The {A-Spades} completed the board and Minieri deliberated for a while before firing a hefty 10,200 bet into the middle - completing the four-barrel blast.

"Nice hand," Minieri's opponent offered as he mucked his hand.

After the two hands, Minieri is sitting with 70,000. Lykov is back up to 65,000.
