Nguyen check-called Mitchell's 250,000 continuation bet and saw the {4-Clubs} fall on the turn. Nguyen followed suit, check-calling Mitchell's 325,000 bet, along with his 425,000 bet after the {10-Spades} river completed the board.

Brown tabled {k-Clubs}{10-Clubs} for the flush and Nguyen shook his head and tossed his hand into the muck.

Rothstein Takes Down Three-Way Pot with Higher Full House

AnthonyThompson • Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 100,000 ante

Michael Linster opened for 225,000 on the button and was called by Russell Rothstein from the small blind, along with Mitchell Brown from the big blind to see a {9-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{5-Clubs} flop.

Action was checked to Linster who bet 250,000 and was called by both opponents.

The {4-Hearts} turn along with the {4-Spades} river were checked down. Both Linster and Brown held a five in their hand but that was no good as Rothstein tabled {6-Clubs}{6-Spades} to take down the pot.

Rafal Kordys opened for 200,000 from middle position Michael Linster three-bet all in for 1,520,000 on the button. Action was on Kevin Lutz who called for less and Kordys mucked his hand face-up {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}

Kevin Lutz: {a-Clubs}{q-Clubs}
Michael Linster: {k-Diamonds}{k-Spades}

Lutz didn't like that Kordys held the same hand and was drawing dead after the {k-Hearts}{5-Spades}{3-Spades} flop gave Linster top-set.

The {6-Clubs} came on the turn and the {j-Clubs} on the river to send Lutz home in 10th place.
