Hand #185: Daniel Strelitz raised to 325,000 with the {5-Spades}{4-Spades} and Chino Rheem called with {6-Spades}{5-Clubs}. The flop came {k-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} and Rheem check-folded to a bet worth 300,000 by Strelitz.

Hand #186: Rheem opened to 350,000 with {Q-Clubs}{9-Hearts} and Strelitz three-bet jammed for 5,240,000 with {K-Clubs}{Q-Spades} to win the pot right there.

Hand #187: Strelitz opened to 325,000 with {9-Spades}{4-Clubs} and Rheem defended the {J-Diamonds}{3-Spades}. The flop came {A-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and Rheem checked, Strelitz bet 300,000 and picked up a call. After the {7-Spades} turn, Rheem checked once more and Strelitz checked back. The {A-Clubs} river brought a bet of 600,000 by Rheem and Strelitz folded right away, which maintained a 4-1 lead for Rheem three hands into heads-up play.

Hand #188: Rheem had the {7-Spades}{2-Clubs} and raised to 400,000, Strelitz called with {K-Clubs}{6-Clubs}. The flop brought {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{5-Spades} and Strelitz checked his nutflushdraw. Rheem bet 600,000 and the call by Strelitz followed. After the {8-Spades} turn, both players checked and the {2-Spades} river was checked by Strelitz.

Rheem bet 800,000 with his rivered bottom pair and Strelitz folded.

Hand #189: Strelitz raised to 325,000 with {K-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} and Rheem defended {Q-Spades}{5-Hearts}. The {Q-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{7-Clubs} flop went check/check. Rheem bet 400,000 on the {9-Diamonds} turn and Strelitz called.

The {2-Spades} on the river kept Rheem ahead and he bet 1,20,000 for value. Strelitz gave it up.

Hand #190: Rheem raised to 350,000 with {8-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}, Strelitz shoved {A-Spades}{5-Hearts} and Rheem snap-folded.
