Hand 120: Sergey Rybachenko moved all in from under the gun for just 10,000 chips and Michael Gathy raised to 75,000 with {10-Diamonds}{2-Spades}. Rybachenko held {Q-Spades}{4-Diamonds} and when the board ran out {8-Spades}{3-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{J-Diamonds} Rybachenko's queen-high was good and he doubled up.

Hand 121: Gathy opened to 60,000 and Rybachenko called off his few remaining chips. Gathy turned over {A-Spades}{5-Diamonds} to his opponent's {A-Hearts}{7-Clubs}, which resulted in a split pot when the board ran out {A-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{2-Spades}{2-Clubs}{10-Hearts}.

Hand 122: Reason opened to 60,000 on the button, Rybachenko moved all in for 70,000 in total from the small blind and Gathy called in the big blind. The two active players checked down the {Q-Hearts}{6-Spades}{10-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{5-Spades} board and the cards were turned onto their backs.

Gathy: {A-Clubs}{4-Spades}
Reason: {9-Clubs}{7-Spades}
Rybachenko: {2-Spades}{2-Hearts}

Rybachenko wins with his lowly pocket deuces. Rybachenko could become the new Jack Straus!
