Hand #68: Benjamin Ector raised to 2.5 million on the button and Gregory Katayama defended from the big blind. The flop came {q-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{2-Spades} and Katayama check-called a bet of 2.1 million from Ector.

The turn was the {6-Diamonds} and Katayama checked again. Ector slid out a bet of 11 million and Katayama stuck around to see the {k-Hearts} on the river.

Katayama checked for the third time and Ector announced all in, putting Katayama to the test for his remaining 38.3 million chips. Katayama called and Ector showed {4-Diamonds}{3-Spades}. Katayama had turned a set of sixes with {6-Spades}{6-Clubs} and a massive pot has provided a stunning start to the day's play.

Hand #69: Katayama limped in from the small blind Vincent Chauve checked his option. The flop fell {a-Clubs}{j-Spades}{6-Spades} and Katayama led out for 1.2 million. Chauve folded and Katayama picked up his second straight pot.

Hand #70: Katayama opened to 2.5 million on the button and Chauve three-bet to 9.5 million in the small blind. Katayama folded and Chauve took down the pot.

Hand #71: Chauve made it 2.4 million to go on the button and Kainalu McCue-Unciano re-raised to 7.2 million from the big blind. Chauve quickly folded and McCue-Unciano earned himself a pot.

Hand #72: Katayama raised it up to 2.4 million in the hijack and Chauve three-bet to 7.3 million in the cutoff. The action folded back to Katayama who also let his hand go.
