Hand #8: Ben Sulsky limped in on the button, Don Nguyen checked, and the flop fell {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}. Nguyen led out for 20,000, Sulsky called, and the turn was the {8-Diamonds}. Nguyen led out again - this time for 50,000 - and Sulsky again called.

The {3-Hearts} completed the board, Nguyen fired a third and final bullet worth 120,000, and Sulsky moved all in for effectively 489,000. Nguyen tanked for quite some time, then folded the {a-Clubs} face up.

Hand #9: Nguyen raised to 32,000 on the button, Sulsky pushed out a stack of green T25,000 chips, putting Nguyen all in for 369,000, and Nguyen called.

Nguyen: {a-Hearts}{10-Hearts}
Sulsky: {k-Spades}{6-Hearts}

The board came {7-Spades}{10-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{10-Spades}, and Nguyen doubled to 738,000 chips plus two lammers. Sulsky has 542,000 chips and his two lammers.
