It's a Great O'Dea

From the button, Benny Spindler brought it in with his standard raise to 70,000. He found action from the big blind where Eoghan O'Dea matched the bet to see a flop.

It came {3-Clubs} {8-Spades} {10-Hearts}, and O'Dea checked. Spindler continued out with a bet of 85,000, and his opponent came right along with the call.

Fourth street brought the {5-Hearts} and another check from O'Dea. Spindler loaded another bullet and fired 170,000 at the pot. After a long pause to consider, O'dea called once more.

The {7-Diamonds} completed the board, and O'Dea decided to lead out into the aggressor with a bet of 280,000. His move sent Spindler deep into the tank for several minutes as he shot sideways glances across the table. After a while, Spindler put in the call.

O'Dea tabled {J-Clubs} {9-Hearts} for the nuts. There was nothing Spindler could show to beat that, and he was visibly frustrated as he flung his cards into the muck. As O'Dea pulled in that big pot, Spindler glared at him through his long bangs, shaking his head and clearly steaming.

That straight pushes O'Dea up to a very healthy 2,060,000, crippling Spindler all the way down to just 290,000 as the dinner break approaches.

Marin Check-Raise Bluffs The River...

Benny Spindler raised to 70,000. Ludovic Lacay called from the cutoff and Adrian Marin called in the big blind.

The flop, turn and river of the {J-Clubs} {10-Spades} {4-Spades} {A-Hearts} {6-Hearts} board were all checked by the three players, until Spindler bet 80,000 on the river.

Ludovic Lacay quickly called this bet before out of nowhere, Marin suddenly woke up and check-raised to 260,000. Both Spindler and Lacay thought for a while but they both folded. Marin immediately and proudly showed {5-Clubs} {4-Diamonds} for just bottom pair.

Arneodo Plays Back at Spindler

First in from the hijack seat, Benny Spindler opened the pot to 70,000, and Julien Arneodo came along with the call from the next seat over. Everyone else ducked out, and it was heads up to a flop of {3-Hearts} {6-Diamonds} {7-Hearts}.

Spindler continued out with a bet of 90,000, drawing a long pause from Arneodo. Eventually, he announced an all-in raise, and Spindler returned his cards to the dealer, 160,000 lighter in the chip stack. He's slipped to 1.14 million, while Arneodo moves up to 830,000.
