Hand #59: Alex Epstein called from middle position and Anson Tsang and Thai Ha called as well. Chance Kornuth sat on the button and he opted to check.

The flop was dealt {k-Hearts}{k-Spades}{6-Diamonds} and it checked around. The turn was the {9-Spades} and Epstein checked. Tsang bet 60,000 and Ha immediately folded. Kornuth called and Epstein got out of the way.

The two saw the {7-Hearts} on the river and Tsang checked to Kornuth. Kornuth bet 300,000 which was more than pot-size and Tsang called. Kornuth showed {k-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} Tsang mucked his hand.

Hand #60: Thai Ha moved his last 450,000 in the middle and all others folded.

Hand #61: Kornuth raised from the hijack to 80,000 and Yong Wang pushed 619,000 to the middle after he used a time bank card. Kornuth folded and the pot was pushed to Wang.

Hand #62: Kornuth called from middle position and hijack Wang and cutoff Rene van Krevelen did the same. Epstein raised to 125,000 and that was enough to make everybody fold.

Hand #63: Van Krevelen bet 589,000 which was everything he had left from the hijack and the other players folded.
