Money Has Been Reached; Tentnowski Starting to Heat Up


On blinds of 4,000/8,000 "MBohmerwald23" pushed 59,625 into the middle and Stanton "Stonniepokes" Tentnowski called, putting his opponent at risk.

"MBohmerwald23": {5-Spades}{5-Diamonds}
Stanton "Stonniepokes" Tentnowski: {j-Hearts}{10-Spades}

The flop came down {6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} and "MBohmerwald23" was still ahead with their pair of nickels. A {6-Clubs} turn fell and the pair seemed to be holding true until the {10-Hearts} river landed, giving Tentnowski a higher boat to take down the pot and add a bounty.

Pahuja Spikes a Bullet to Collect a Bounty


On blinds of 1,800/3,600 Vinny "brownmagic" Pahuja called the all-in of Ramon “hoodrathings” Liriano Jr and the two tabled their hands.

Ramon “hoodrathings” Liriano Jr: {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Vinny "brownmagic" Pahuja: {a-Hearts}{10-Clubs}

All was well for Liriano Jr who had a commanding lead with his dimes but an {a-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{2-Hearts} flop quickly turned the tables as Pahuja landed a pair of bullets. The {5-Spades}{q-Spades} runout was a nonfactor and Pahuja secured the pot, dropping Liriano Jr from the tournament.

"milkyrugs": {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}

The flop was {9-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}, giving "SadBigCheese" a flush draw but the {9-Spades}{8-Hearts} runout failed to connect and they were sent packing, shipping the pot to "milkyrugs" with their bullets.
