Mateusz_Pater • Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante
Shana Matthews, Kristen Bicknell

Hand #36

Kristen Bicknell opened to 20,000 on the button, before Leanne Haas raised it up to 50,000 from the big blind. Bicknell stared down the bet, as well as Haas’ stack, before making the call, as both saw the flop come down {8-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}. With the option on Haas, she threw out a continuation bet of 55,000, as Bicknell sat up in her chair. She looked down at her cards one last time, before folding her hand, relinquishing the pot to Haas.

Hand #37

Eleanor Gudger opened to 25,000 from under the gun, and watched as everyone folded around, to award her the pot.

Hand #38

Amanda Baker opened to 20,000 from the cut-off, before Julie Monsacre raised it up to 55,000 from the small blind. Baker thought about her decision for just a moment, before releasing her hand.

Hand #39

Shana Matthews opened to 22,000, before Kristen Bicknell opted to raise it up to 55,000. The action folded back around to Matthews who asked Bicknell how much she had, before re-raising all in, which was snap called.

Matthews: {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}
Bicknell: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}

Matthews was behind, but had more chips heading to the flop. The board ran out {3-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{9-Clubs}, to see Bicknell double up to the chip lead, as Matthews dropped to 270,000.
