Hand #53: Gjergj Sinishtaj opened for 105,000 from the button and Rory Rees Brennan called from the big blind. The flop came {2-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{A-Spades}, and when Sinishtaj led for 120,000, Brennan folded.

Hand #54: Jared Bleznick raised to 100,000 from under the gun, and it folded all of the way back to Daniel Aleai in the big blind who called. The flop came {A-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{3-Hearts} and both checked. The {10-Diamonds} came on fourth street, and this time Alaei bet 145,000 and Bleznick called quickly.

The river was the {4-Hearts} and both checked again. Alaei showed {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{8-Clubs} and Bleznick {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{7-Spades}, and Bleznick won the pot with top pair, top kicker.

Hand #55: Gjergj Sinishtaj raised to 110,000 from the hijack seat, then Alaei reraised to 380,000 from the small blind. The action back on Sinishtaj, he thought for about a half-minute before making the call.

The flop came monotone — {9-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{4-Clubs} — and Alaei paused a beat before announcing a bet of 225,000. Sinishtaj didn't wait very long before shoving all in, and Alaei folded.
