Hand #180: Gabriel Nassif opened with a raise under the gun and won the pot.

Hand #181: Brian Aleksa raised all in for 36,000 from the button, Ronnie Bardah called from the small blind and Gabriel Nassif did the same from the big. Both active players proceeded to check it down as the board ran out {10-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{2-Hearts}.

Aleksa was up out of his seat before he even saw his opponents' cards, and that's because he held the measly {j-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}. It was actually better than Bardah's {9-}{7-}, but not good enough to beat Nassif's {q-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} for queen high. Aleksa shook hands with the remaining players and then made his way to the payout desk to collect $69,968.
