Hand #151: Gordon Voya calls on the button and Davidi Kitai checked. The {5-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} flop was bet to the tune of 100,000 by Voya and Kitai folded.

Hand #152: Kitai had the button and he raised to 175,000. Voya called and it was off to the {6-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{9-Hearts} flop. A check from Voya prompted Kitai to be 110,000 and Voya called.

The {2-Spades} was met with checks from both players, leading to the {A-Diamonds} falling on the river. Both players checked and Kitai won the hand with {Q-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}.

Hand #153: Vayo limped in on the button. Kitai wasn’t prepared to take a passive route and raised to 190,000. Vayo put in the extra chips and the dealer go busy spreading the {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} flop.

A bet of 95,000 from Kitai was not enough to push Vayo off his hand and he called. The {A-Diamonds} was the turn card and Kitai bet again, this time increasing the amount slightly to 120,000. Vayo called.

The {5-Clubs} completed the board, Kitai checked, Vayo bet 320,000 giving Kitai some thinking to do. Call.

Kitai showed {Q-Spades}{J-Spades} and won the pot with queen-high for the second time tonight, Vayo mucked {10-}{8-}.

Hand #154: Kitai raised to 175,000 and Vayo responded with a call. Vayo then checked the {4-Spades}{A-Hearts}{2-Spades} flop and Kita bet 95,000. Vayo called. The heads-up duo watched as the {K-Clubs} appeared on the turn. Vayo checked its arrival, Kitai continued his aggression with a 145,000 bet that Vayo called.

Fifth street, the river, was the {J-Clubs} and both players checked, then split the pot because they’d both made a pair of fours with their {4-Clubs}{3-Clubs} and {9-Clubs}{4-Hearts}.
