Hands #38-42: Wien Extends His Lead

Jan_Kores • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 50,000 ante

Hand #38: Eric Blair made it 110,000 in the hijack and Shawn Buchanan came along from the big blind. Buchanan let Blair continue for 135,000 on the {6-Hearts}{9-Spades}{Q-Spades} flop and called. The {9-Hearts} turn was quickly checked by both players and the {J-Clubs} river saw Buchanan fire 225,000. Blair quickly called with the winning hand, although it wasn't clear which exact hole cards he opened.

Hand #39: David Peters raised to 115,000 on the button, but folded after David Laka moved all in for 1.15 million out of the big blind.

Hand #40: Peters repeated his previous raise, and this time it went through uncontested.

Hand #41: Buchanan raised to 125,000 in the cutoff and John Amato flatted in the small blind. A Broadway flop landed as the dealer rolled out {J-Spades}{A-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}. Amato check-called 125,000 and then checked the {7-Clubs} turn. Buchanan checked back to see a blank {2-Spades} river. Amato fired 415,000 and Buchanan let it go.

Hand #42: Eric Blair completed in the small blind and called when Jeremy Wien made it 155,000. They both checked the {3-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} flop, then Blair led out 255,000 on the {5-Spades} turn. Wien called and the {10-Spades} paired the board. Blair checked and folded to Wien's bet of 275,000.
