Hand #18: Andreas Klatt got a walk.

Hand #19: Klatt moved all in from the small blind and Gagliano folded his big blind.

Hand #20: Pillai opened to 55,000 under the gun and Kevin Gerhart three-bet shoved for 310,000 from the cutoff. Action folded back to Pillai who went deep into the tank, then made the call.

Kevin Gerhart: {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}
Shankar Pillai: {k-Hearts}{j-Clubs}

The flop came {3-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} giving Pillai an open-ended straight draw but the {2-Hearts} turn and {k-Spades} river completed the board and Gerhart stayed ahead with his pair of aces to double up.
