O'Dwyer Pays Off Vasylchenko

zedmaster84 • Level 19: 70,000-140,000, 17,500 ante

On a completed board of {k-Spades}{6-Spades}{4-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{k-Hearts}, Oleg Vasylchenko made it 942,018 to go with a pot of 2,854,600 until then. Steve O'Dwyer was the only opponent left and tank-called to get shown the {k-Clubs}{10-Spades} for trips tens by Vasylchenko.

That ended up winning the pot as O'Dwyer mucked and dropped below the average.

Baldini Gets Put All-in by Jorstad

poolshir • Level 19: 70,000-140,000, 17,500 ante

Marco Baldini raised from the middle position and Espen Uhlen Jorstad three-bet to 1,176,000 from the big blind which Baldini called.

The flop came {a-Clubs}{q-Spades}{3-Spades}, Jorstad continued with a bet of 630,000 and was called again.

The turn was the {10-Clubs} and Jorstad bet enough to put Baldini all-in who took some time but then opted to fold.

Selouan Short Again; Dvoress and Rudolph Battle

zedmaster84 • Level 19: 70,000-140,000, 17,500 ante

Rodrigo Selouan raise-called a three-bet by chip leader Daniel Dvoress and then folded on a nine-high flop.

Up next, Dvoress min-raised to 280,000 and Christian Rudolph three-bet to 980,000. Dvoress made the call and check-folded the {9-Spades}{5-Spades}{2-Hearts} flop. Both tangled again in the very same three-bet spot. However, this time it was Dvoress who won a pot of more than 3.3 million as Rudolph let go on the turn.

Vasylchenko Leaves Heidorn Short

zedmaster84 • Level 19: 70,000-140,000, 17,500 ante

Joining the action on the {a-Spades}{6-Spades}{5-Spades}{9-Diamonds} turn with 1,232,000 in the middle, Robert Heidorn checked out of the big blind. Oleg Vasylchenko bet 776,160 on the button and Heidorn invested some precious seconds of his time bank before making the call.

The {2-Diamonds} on the river was checked and Heidorn rolled over {a-Hearts}{4-Hearts}, which Vasylchenko had beat with the {a-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}.

Triple Up for Selouan

zedmaster84 • Level 19: 70,000-140,000, 17,500 ante

Daniel Dvoress min-raised and picked up a call by Jeremy Saderne in the cutoff. Rodrigo Selouan jammed his short stack of around 1 million out of the small blind and was called by Dvoress and Saderne.

On the {7-Spades}{5-Spades}{2-Clubs} flop, Dvoress check-called a bet worth 753,192 by Saderne and did so again on the {a-Spades} turn for 840,000. The {q-Clubs} river was checked by both active players and Selouan tabled the {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}. That ended up securing a triple up, as Dvoress' {a-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} was third-best, Selouan won the side pot against the Canadian with {a-Hearts}{10-Clubs}.

Kocab Catches a Double

zedmaster84 • Level 18: 60,000-120,000, 15,000 ante

Down to 11 blinds, Jiri Kocab jammed it in from the under the gun position and was called by Steve O'Dwyer in the cutoff.

Kocab tabled the {k-Clubs}{j-Clubs} and was trailing against O'Dwyer's {a-Spades}{q-Hearts}. However, he spiked top pair on the {k-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} flop and made that top two pair on the {j-Spades} turn. Only a ten could help O'Dwyer and the river was a blank {7-Hearts}.
