More Eliminations Incoming; Veldhuis Cracks Aces to Bust Kihara

zedmaster84 • Level 19: 17,500-35,000, 4,500 ante

Pauli "Fiilismies" Ayras doubled in a flip with {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds} against the {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} of "uwintakeit" thanks to the {a-Clubs} on the river.

Two hands later, "uwintakeit" lost his short stack to Jason "JASON.MAC100" McConnon when {a-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} made inferior two pair versus {a-Spades}{9-Spades} on a {9-Clubs}{8-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} board.

"fishbones11" saw his stack reduced to crumbs when his {q-Spades}{10-Spades} made a full house on the {10-Clubs}{5-Spades}{5-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} board only for "zazano" to show {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} for the superior full house and score a double to more than 4 million.

"fishbones11" departed the next hand with {j-Spades}{10-Hearts} as Benjamin "bencb789" Rolle improved with {10-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} in the big blind on a {8-Spades}{7-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} board.

The next bang on the same table went in favor of Lex "L. Veldhuis" Veldhuis when he cracked the aces of Naoya "nkeyno" Kihara. Veldhuis was in the big blind and defended to a raise worth 87,500. The PokerStars ambassador check-raised the {5-Spades}{3-Spades}{3-Clubs} flop from 70,000 to 210,000 and led the {k-Clubs} turn for 280,000. Kihara jammed for 806,316 and Veldhuis made the call.

Naoya "nkeyno" Kihara: {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}
Lex "L. Veldhuis" Veldhuis: {a-Spades}{2-Spades}

The river was the {8-Spades} and Veldhuis improved to the nutflush.
