Small One For Katz

Nick Schulman min-raised from the button with {A-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} and Cary Katz defended from the big blind holding {K-Spades}{6-Spades}. The duo proceeded to check both the {8-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}{9-Spades} flop and {J-Hearts} turn, and then Katz bet 80,000 on the {2-Hearts} river. Schulman was having none of it and gave up his hand.

Katz's Nine Lives

Cary Katz moved all in for 710,000 on the button with {k-Hearts}{10-Hearts}, and Nick Schulman immediately called in the big blind with {a-Spades}{9-Diamonds}.

The flop fell {a-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{9-Spades}, giving Schulman two pair, but Katz had a straight draw. The turn was the {3-Spades} - no help to Katz - but the {j-Clubs} spiked on the river, giving him the straight!

Katz shot back in his chair at the sight of the card, and doubled to 1.5 million chips.

Schulman Picks Up Aces

David "Doc" Sands opened for 130,00 on the button holding {7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} only to have Nick Schulman three-bet to 385,000 from the small blind, which is where he picked up {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}. Scott Seiver thought long and hard before folding from the big blind, and then Sands tanked for several minutes before making the call.

The {5-Hearts}{K-Clubs}{9-Clubs} flop kept Schulman firmly in the lead, and he kept the pressure on with a bet of 440,000. Sands, who is known to take his time, thought for about 90 seconds before releasing his hand.

Schulman Turns a Ten

• Level 19: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Nick Schulman opened to 125,000 from under the gun with {a-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}, Scott Seiver called with {3-Hearts}{3-Spades} on the button, and David "Doc" Sands defended from the big blind with unknown holdings.

Shaun The Dealer fanned {9-Spades}{k-Clubs}{7-Hearts}, all three players checked, and the turn was the {10-Spades}. The action checked to Schulman, who fired 250,000, Seiver folded, and so too did Sands.
