ajlamers • Level 18: 250,000-500,000, 500,000 ante

Hand #54: Fedor Holz raised to 1.1 million in the cutoff and Justin Bonomo called on the button. The flop came {k-Spades}{7-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and Holz continued for 1.8 million Bonomo called to see the {7-Hearts} pair the board on the turn.

Holz pushed in another bet of 7 million after using up one of his time extensions. Bonomo quickly folded and Holz dragged in the first pot of the night.

Hand #55: Bonomo opened to 1.2 million in the cutoff and Rick Salomon called from the small blind. The flop fell {9-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{4-Hearts} and Salomon check-called a bet of 1.5 million from Bonomo. The turn was the {j-Hearts} and both players checked to the {5-Diamonds} on the river. Salomon led out for 2 million and Bonomo instantly called. Salomon turned over {k-Diamonds}{q-Hearts} for a flush and Bonomo mucked his cards.

Hand #56: Holz made it 1.1 million to go from under the gun and David Einhorn defended his big blind. On a flop of {7-Hearts}{6-Spades}{3-Clubs}, Einhorn checked to Holz who bet 1.6 million. Einhorn let his hand go and Holz scooped the pot.
