Toby Lewis opened for 75,000 under the gun and was called by Bryce Yockey from the cutoff and Yik Chiu on the button. Action was on Heng Zhang who three-bet to 325,000 from the small blind and got a fold from Lewis and Chiu while Yockey called.

The flop fell {q-Clubs}{10-Spades}{9-Spades} and Zhang jammed for his remaining 325,000 and Yockey snap-called.

Bryce Yockey: {j-Spades}{10-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{7-Clubs}
Heng Zhang: {k-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{5-Spades}

Joao Simao open-jammed from early position and had four callers that saw a flop of {k-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{a-Hearts}.

Action was checked to Bryce Yockey who fired out 75,000 from the hijack and that was good enough to get heads-up with Simao.

Bryce Yockey: {j-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{5-Hearts}
Joao Simao: {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{6-Hearts}

Yockey was on a flush and broadway draw but couldn't connect with the {2-Clubs} turn and {j-Clubs} river and Simao got some much-needed chips.
