zedmaster84 • Level 20: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Ihar Soika raised to 32,000 and Senh Ung called from two seats over. Leslie Packer called in the big blind and neither of the opponents was willing to call Packer's shove for around 240,000 on the flop {5-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{10-Hearts}.

Over on the other table, Martin Finger raised to 32,000 from the button and Ezequiel Kleinman called in the big blind. They checked the flop {9-Clubs}{10-Spades}{4-Hearts} and Kleinman then bet the {J-Hearts} turn for 40,000. Finger called and Kleinman check-folded the {2-Hearts} river to a bet of 100,000 by Finger
