Hand #5: Nacho Barbero opened the pot to 25,000 only to have Tobias Wenker three-bet to 65,000 from two seats over.

The blinds released and Barbero contemplated for a few moments while shuffling chips before folding.

Hand #6: The action folded round to Jake Schwartz who raised to 24,000 from the hi-jack with only Simeon Naydenov making the call as the {4-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{A-Hearts} flop was checked by Naydenov before Schwartz bet out 24,000.

Naydenov made the call as the dealer dropped the {10-Hearts} on the turn and both players checked as the {4-Hearts} completed the board on the river and both players checked again.

Schwartz would table {7-}{7-}, but it would be Naydenov's {Q-Diamonds}{J-Spades} for two pair that would see him capture the pot.

Hand #7: From the cutoff Jan Kropacek raised to 24,000 only to have Sumanth Reddy move all in from the button to force folds from the blinds and Kropacek.

Hand #8: Jake Schwartz opened the pot to 24,000 with Salman Behbehani making the call next to act along with Jan Kropacek from the cutoff before Mike Watson three-bet to 104,000 from the small blind.

Schwartz and Behbehani folded but Kropacek made the call to see the dealer spread a {J-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} flop. Watson contemplated for several moments before leading out for 77,000 to prompt a muck from Kropacek.
