BrandonTemple • Level 24: 15,000-30,000, 30,000 ante

Brian Reeder raised to 60,000 from under the gun, and was called by Kyle Cartwright in the small blind and Brent Cunningham in the big blind.

Cartwright and Cunningham checked the {k-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{7-Hearts} flop to Reeder, who bet 130,000. Cartwright called, and Cunningham elected to come along as well.

The {8-Hearts} turn was checked through to the {3-Clubs} river. Cartwright checked, and Cunningham bet 350,000. Reeder folded, and Cartwright called after a minute in the tank. Cunningham tabled {9-Spades}{8-Diamonds} for turned trip eights, and Cartwright mucked.

Laura Hoppe
Laura Hoppe

Laura Hoppe raised to 60,000 from the hijack, and Austin McCormick three-bet to 160,000 on the button. Hoppe called after a minute in the tank.

The {q-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} flop was checked by Hoppe, and McCormick bet 170,000. Hoppe called.

Hoppe checked again on the {5-Spades} turn, and McCormick fired another barrel, this time for 340,000. Hoppe called again.

The {4-Diamonds} hit the river, and Hoppe checked a third time. McCormick jammed, putting Hoppe to the test for her last 995,000. Hoppe tanked for a few minutes.

"Go big or go home, eh?" Hoppe said to McCormick. She called, and McCormick tabled {a-Hearts}{9-Clubs} for a triple-barrel bluff. Hoppe slammed down {a-Spades}{q-Hearts} for top pair, top kicker, and Hoppe, the start of the day short stack, now holds the chip lead with eight players left.

"That was a bad ass call, eh boys?" Hoppe added after the hand.

BrandonTemple • Level 24: 15,000-30,000, 30,000 ante
Brent Cunningham
Brent Cunningham

Hand #1:

Brent Cunningham raised to 60,000 from the cutoff, and Brian Reeder three-bet to 175,000 from the button. Cunningham folded.

Hand #2:

The very next hand, Kyle Cartwright raised to 60,000 from middle position, and Cunningham three-bet shoved for 480,000 from the hijack. Reeder four-bet shoved for 1.3 million from the cutoff, and action folded back to Cartwright, who quickly folded.

Brent Cunningham: {k-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}
Brian Reeder: {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}

Reeder's Big Slick held on the {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}{7-Clubs} flop, but the {q-Spades} turn left him shaking his head, as Cunningham peeled a three-outer to leave Reeder looking for an ace to earn the knockout. The {4-Clubs} on the river changed nothing, and Cunningham doubled up.
