Hand #28: Maximilian Senft raised to 400,000 in middle position, and Mark Newhouse called from the big blind to see the {3-Clubs}{k-Spades}{10-Clubs} flop. Newhouse checked, and a bet of 475,000 won the pot for Senft.

Hand #29: Andoni Larrabe raised to 425,000 in the cutoff, and Thomas Sarra Jr. called from the big blind. Both players checked the {5-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{5-Spades} flop, and a {2-Spades} made it four babies on the board. Sarra bet 380,000. Larrabe called, seeing a {6-Hearts}. Sarra bet 670,000 this time. About a minute later, Larrabe called. Sarra mucked immediately, and Larrabe showed {a-Clubs}{7-Hearts} for ace-high.

Hand #30: Felix Stephensen opened in early position and won the pot.

Hand #31: Luis Velador made it 400,000 in early position. Senft defended from the big blind, and {5-Spades}{10-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} flopped. Senft check-called 500,000, and a {7-Hearts} hit the felt. Senft checked again, calling 750,000. The {9-Hearts} was the river card, and Senft checked a final time. Velador checked it back. Senft had {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}, and Velador couldn't beat it.

Hand #32: Craig McCorkell raised to 425,000 in middle position, he was called by big blind Stephensen. Two quick checks followed the {6-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{2-Clubs} flop, and a {j-Clubs} put a three-flush out there. Two more passes, and then a {4-Clubs} completed the board. McCorkell won with {a-Hearts}{10-Clubs} for a flush after both players checked again.

Hand #33: Bruno Politano's 450,000 raise in the cutoff was three-bet to 1.125 million by Stephensen in the small blind. Velador mucked in the big blind, and Politano came back with 2.38 million. After thinking it over for a couple of minutes, Stephensen put out 3.635 million. Minutes later, Politano put in another raise, and Stephensen gave up the noble effort, folding instantly.
