Hand #105: Marco Bognanni calls from the button and Robert Mitchell checked his blind. Both players checked to the turn on a board of {2-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}, Mitchell then check-called a 1 million chip bet from Bognanni. Both players then checked the {8-Hearts} river, Mitchell tabled {j-Hearts}{9-Clubs} and raked in the pot.

Hand #106: Hallay called from the button, and then folded after Mitchell raised it to 4.5 million from his small blind.

Hand #107: After both Mitchell and Bognanni limped preflop, Hallay raised it up to 4.5 million and Mitchell made the call. Bognanni then three-bet shoved for 24.9 million, which got an instant fold from Hallay, but Mitchell asked for a count. He then went into the tank for about a minute before he decided the amount was too much too call and he mucked his cards.

Hand #108: Hallay called in the small blind and after Mitchell checked his option, both players saw a flop of {9-Spades}{k-Hearts}{a-Spades}. Hallay bet 1 million and got called by Mitchell. After both players checked the {8-Hearts} turn, and Hallay again checked on the {5-Diamonds} river, Mitchell decided to take a shot at the pot with a bet of 2 million, which was enough because Hallay folded.

Hand #109: After Mitchell raised it to 3.5 million and Bognanni made the call, both players checked to the river on a board of {k-Hearts}{a-Spades}{4-Spades}{10-Clubs}{2-Spades}. Mitchell then bet out 2 million, only to be check-raised to 15.2 million by Bognanni, which got a quick fold from Mitchell.

The river brought the {3-Spades} and Bognanni checked. Hallay bet 6,000,000 this time, and Bogdanni went in the tank.
