Hand #80: Sandeep Pulusani raised to 110,000 and Martin Hanowski reraised to 250,000. Pulusani folded and Hanowski won the pot.

Hand #81: Niall Farrell raised to 110,000 and it folded around.

Hand #82: Michael Rocco raised to 100,00 from the small blind and Pulusani reraised to 250,000 from the big.

Rocco tanked for a solid two minutes and was trying to get some information from Pulusani. He literally leaned in over the table to get a good look at Pulusani's face. Pulusani must not have given away anything because Rocco went in the tanked for a good two minutes more. Pulusani finally called the clock and Rocco ended folding before the final countdown. Pulusani showed the {3-Clubs}.

Hand #83: Hanowski raised to 100,000 and and Farrell called. Both players checked the {2-Spades}{8-Hearts}{4-Spades} flop. Farrell check-folded to Hanowski's bet on the {5-Hearts} turn.

Hand #84: Pulusani raised to 110,000 and Farrell reraised to 265,000. Hanowski 4-bet to 425,000, Pulusani folded and Farrell reraised all in. Hanowski asked for a count and made the call with almost 2/3 of the chips in play at stake.

Farrell: {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}
Hanowski: {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}

While Hanowski started the hand in the lead, Farrell's ace came right on the {a-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{9-Spades} flop. Farrell would maintain the lead through the {9-Clubs} turn and {5-Spades} river, giving him a majority of the chips in play and leaving Hanowski with less than 10 big blinds going into level 29.
