Hand #138: James Anderson raised to 3,400,000 on the button, Liran Betito three-bet to 9,200,000 in the small blind and Anderson called. The flop was and Betito bet 13,000,000. Anderson shoved all in for 38,500.000 and Betito snapped him off.
"Yes!" yelled his fellow Israeli Shalom Elharar at the table, who seemingly was more anxious about the runout than Betito. Anderson needed an ace or deuce and caught exactly that when the fell on the turn.
"No mami," Elharar said in exasperation after the deuce rolled off. The river could change nothing and a disgusted Betito was left with just 8,200,000.
Hand #139: Betito shipped the 8,200,000 in on the button and received a swift call from Fernando Karam in the big blind.
The board ran out and the previously deflated Israeli rail found life when the king fell on the river. A loud "Yes!" from Elharar once again echoed around the Amazon room.
Hand #140: Karam raised to 3,800,000 in the small blind, Elharar three-bet shoved 23,900,000, and Karam nodded and called.
The board fell and Elharar and the Israelis cheered in delight.
Hand #141: Elharar limped the small blind and check-folded the flop to a 2,300,000 bet from Anderson.
