Saar Wilf just ended up all in for 372,000 from the button against Max Silver in the small blind.

Wilf: {A-Spades}{8-Diamonds}
Silver: {K-Spades}{J-Clubs}

The flop brought out {6-Spades}{6-Hearts}{J-Spades}, and Wilf let out a deep sigh as he got up out of his seat. The turn brought the {7-Clubs}, and only an ace on the river could save him. The {A-Diamonds} did just that, and Wilf celebrate quietly, as Silver paid off the bet.

Stern Takes from Papazian

zedmaster84 • Level 22: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante

Zvi Stern showed up about 10 minutes late and then raised to 50,000. Alexandru Papazian three-bet to 185,000 and Stern asked him if there had been any movements to his stack while he was not there yet. "About 100,000 more," Papazian said and Stern called. Both checked the {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts} flop and Papazian check-called 75,000 on the turn.

The {Q-Diamonds} river was checked through and Papazian showed {J-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}, Stern claimed the pot with {A-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}.
