Myers Rivers Straight For A Knockout

• Nível 10: 1,000-1,500, 1,500 ante

Matt Myers opened to 3,500 from under the gun. Maurice Hawkins made the call on the button and the action folded to the player in the big blind who moved all-in for just over 35,000. Myers shoved over the top and Hawkins got out of the way.

Big Blind: {a-Diamonds}{j-Spades}
Matt Myers: {10-Spades}{10-Hearts}

The board ran out {j-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{a-Spades}. The player all-in and at risk out flopped Myers with a pair of jacks. Unfortunately, he couldn't hold when the ace on the river completed a Broadway straight for Myers pocket tens.

Tristan Wade raised in the hijack and the player in the small blind three-bet to 11,500. The big blind quickly folded and Wade made the call.

The dealer spread a flop of {8-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} and the small blind continued for 10,000, which Wade called.

Both the {q-Diamonds} on the turn and the {4-Clubs} on the river got checked and the small blind opened {a-Clubs}{5-Clubs} for ace-high, while Wade scooped the pot when he tabled {10-Spades}{10-Clubs} for two pairs.

Lauson Makes Quads

• Nível 10: 1,000-1,500, 1,500 ante
Travis Lauson
Travis Lauson

On a flop of {k-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}, the player first to act jammed all-in for 10,000 and Travis Lauson called next to act before the third player announced he was all-in for just over 70,000 chips. Lauson snap-called and all three hands were shown.

Opponent One: {8-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}
Opponent Two: {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}
Travis Lauson: {k-Spades}{k-Hearts}

Lauson flopped top set and was looking to avoid a diamond for his opponent's flush. The turn was the {4-Clubs}, changing nothing and the {k-Clubs} on the river meant Lauson made quads to eliminate both opponents.
