Meless Eliminated by Hoesel

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

Joshua Hoesel raised to 264,000 and Aleksejs Meless three-bet to 1,080,000 out of the small blind. Hoesel made the call and came along when Meless continued for 600,000 on the {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{2-Hearts} flop. Meless had some 2 million behind and those went in after the {7-Hearts} turn, Hoesel called.

Meless tabled {a-}{k-} and Hoesel was ahead with the {a-Clubs}{q-Spades} for the top two pair. A blank followed on the river and Meless departed not far away from the end of the night. Only 94 players currently remain and 89 will advance to Day 2.

O'Dwyer now turned up the aggression and that immediately shut down Heidorn.

Jeremy Saderne looked him up with the {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts} and both players missed the flop and turn.

Peralta Felted by Mikolaitis

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

On a flop of {10-Spades}{9-Clubs}{7-Spades}, the stacks went in between Eugenio Peralta and Dominykas Mikolaitis. It was the former at risk in a pot worth nearly 6.4 million.
