Hand #1: Duy Ho raised to 36,000 and got a caller in Paul Sokoloff out of the big blind. On the flop, Sokoloff checked, Ho bet 55,000, Sokoloff check-raised to 155,000, and Ho folded to give Sokoloff the pot.
Hand #2: Will Givens raised to 35,000 and Dutch Boyd, who was with him on the final table of the $1,000 No Limit Hold'em (Event #33), walked by and wished him good luck.
Dmitrii Shchepkin three-bet to 76,000 and only Givens made the call. After the flop, Givens bet and took down the pot.
Hand #3: Ivan Saul raised to 35,000 from early position and got two callers in Patrick Curzio and Givens in the blinds. On the flop, both players in the blinds checked and Saul made the continuation bet for 65,000.
Curzio then check-raised all in and Givens quickly folded. Saul asked for a count and eventually made the call.
On the turn, Curzio improved to a pair of eights and that would hold up after the river as well to see him double up and leave the Argentinian very short.
