Hand #193: George Holmes limped in on the button but Koray Aldemir raised it up to 8,500,000 to get the fold.

Hand #194: Aldemir raised to 4,600,000 from the button and Holmes defended. The flop came down with the {j-Spades}{j-Clubs}{7-Clubs}, Holmes checked and so did Aldemir. The {8-Spades} on the turn didn't bring any betting action either so the {k-Hearts} completed the board. They both checked again. Aldemir showed the {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} for the ace-kicker to claim the pot.

Hand #195: Holmes raised to 4,000,000 and Aldemir three-bet to 17,000,000. Holmes called.

The flop came {7-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{a-Spades}, Aldemir took a minute and barreled a bet of 10,000,000 out, Holmes raised it up to 28,000,000 after thinking about it for 44 seconds. Aldemir called after 47 seconds.

The turn was the {6-Spades} and Aldemir checked. Holmes did the same for the {8-Spades} to complete the board. Aldemir tanked for 74 seconds and then bet 9,000,000. Holmes raised to 24,000,000 after considering it for a minute. Aldemir called but Holmes held the {a-Hearts}{8-Hearts} for two pair and the big pot.
