ajlamers • Level 26: 20,000-40,000, 40,000 ante
Friman Villalona

In the last hand before the break, Friman Villalona raised to 110,000 in the cutoff. Rick Troendly three-bet to 320,000 from the small blind and Villalona called. The flop came {q-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} and both players checked to the {6-Clubs} on the turn.

Troendly led out for 600,000 and Villalona thought for a minute before shoving all in for 970,000. Troendly went into the tank for nearly two minutes before sigh-calling.

Villalona turned over {3-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} and Troendly was well ahead of that with {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs}. The river was the {7-Diamonds} and Troendly held on to eliminate Villalona in fifth place. There will be a little under 10 minutes left on the break.
