The action folded around to Dinesh Alt in the hijack, who raised to 90,000 in chips. Michael Fadersen then announced all in from the cut-off for his remaining 900,000 in chips. Gary Benson then joined the party, by moving all in for his last 370,000 in chips from the small blind. Alt got out of the way, as both players tabled their cards.

Benson: {K-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}

The board bricked for Fadersen, as it ran out {A-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{5-Spades}{9-Clubs}{4-Hearts}, giving Benson a much needed double-up.

Big Hand Before the Break

Mateusz_Pater • Level 24: 15,000-30,000, 5,000 ante

In the last hand before the break, Dejan Divkovic opened to 60,000 in chips. Dinesh Alt was sitting in the hijack, and opted to raise to 160,000 in chips. Divkovic came back over the top and raised an additional 130,000 to 290,000 in chips which was called. The board fell {9-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} as both players checked. The {9-Spades} on the turn saw Divkovic bet out 120,000 in chips, and get called. When the {3-Clubs} completed the board, Divkovic slowly counted out 400,000 in chips, and slid them into the middle. Alt sat motionless for a minute before announcing all in for 755,000 in chips which was instantly called.

Divkovic: {J-Clubs}{9-Hearts}
Alt: {10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}

The crowd erupted when Divkovic turned over his cards for a full house, but were even more shocked when Alt tabled his cards for a better full house.

“What a slow-roll,” was heard from the rail.

Divkovic didn’t think so, as he acknowledged his opponents good play.
