Steve Chanthabouasy raised it up from under the gun and was called by Kosei Ichinose in the big blind. The flop came {k-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{2-Spades} and Ichinose check-called a bet from Chanthabouasy.

The {6-Clubs} paired the board on the turn and both players checked to the {k-Clubs} on the river. Ichinose checked for the third time and Chanthabouasy threw in a bet. Ichinose looked him up and Chanthabouasy showed {9-Hearts}{8-Hearts} for just nine-high. Ichinose turned over {a-Spades}{q-Clubs} for ace-high and scooped the pot.

Chanthabouasy was left with just 55,000 after the hand and stuck in the last of his chips from the big blind when Kenny Hsiung raised. Ichinose also came along to see a flop of {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}. It checked through to the {a-Spades} on the turn and the {j-Clubs} on the river.

Ichinose bet the river and Hsiung let his hand go. Ichinose showed {a-Hearts}{8-Hearts} for two pair while Chanthabouasy exited with {q-Hearts}{10-Clubs}.
