Papola & Blumenthal Do Battle

[user135779]

Geffrey Klein has been more than happy to just stay out of the way and let Eddie Blumenthal and Jeffrey Papola go hammer-and-tongs at each other as the action continues here at this final table.

After several uncontested pots, Papola elected to limp in from the button before the flop. Blumenthal raised to 135,000 from the small blind, forcing Klein out of the way before Papola called to go heads-up to the flop of {8-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{A-Hearts}.

Blumenthal led out for 140,000 and Papola called before both players checked the turn of the {3-Diamonds}. Blumenthal then checked his option on the river {3-Diamonds}, which saw Papola lead out for 260,000. Blumenthal called and his {A-Spades}{K-Hearts} was good enough to take the pot down.

In the very next hand, Blumenthal raised to 60,000 from the button and again Klein let his hand go, leaving Papola to call before the dealer spread a flop of {J-Spades}{3-Clubs}{3-Spades}. Papola check-called Blumenthal's bet of 80,000, then both players checked the turn of the {6-Diamonds} before Papola fired out 160,000 on the river of the {10-Spades}. This time, Blumenthal let his hand go.
