zedmaster84 • Level 1: 50-100, 0 ante

Table eight already provides some early action and Hassan Bittar is involved as usual. The first hand saw a three-way pot of 3,500 to the flop of {3-Spades} {4-Spades} {3-Clubs} that was checked through. Toufic Saliba then bet 1,250 on the {4-Clubs} turn and was called by Khalil Tawil whereas Aristidis Theodoridis folded.

The {2-Spades} river was checked through and the {A-Clubs} {J-Clubs} of Khalil were no good, as Saliba had spiked a straight with {5-Clubs} {6-Clubs}.

One hand later, Bittar raised to 500 in a "friendly hand" and half of the table laughed. Saliba called out of the blinds and check-raised the {6-Diamonds} {10-Diamonds} {4-Hearts} flop from 700 to 2,100. "You know, I want to raise you but I just call," Bittar said. Both the {9-Clubs} turn and {2-Diamonds} brought no further action and Saliba won the pot with {6-Spades} {10-Hearts}, Bittar only had top pair.
