Lijo Doubles Through Hall

Cottrellmkw • Level 24: Blinds 200,000-400,000, 400,000 ante

Galen Hall moved all in from the small blind and, after thinking for some time, Lander Lijo called off for his tournament life out of the big blind.

Lander Lijo: {a-Hearts}{2-Hearts}
Galen Hall: {k-Diamonds}{4-Spades}

Lijo was marginally ahead and remained so following the {5-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{q-Spades} runout to secure a full double up.

Galen Hall opened to 1,050,000 from the small blind and Lander Lijo called from the big blind.

The flop came {6-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{4-Hearts} and after Hall checked, Lijo bet 800,000. Hall called.

The turn was the {2-Hearts} and after Hall checked a second time, Lijo used one of his time banks before checking.

On the {5-Diamonds} river, Hall used a time bank before checking a third time and Lijo used a similar amount of time before checking back.

Hall showed {7-Spades}{6-Diamonds} for the winner.

Lijo Gets Shove Through

Cottrellmkw • Level 23: Blinds 150,000-300,000, 300,000 ante

Lander Lijo opened to 600,000 on the button and was faced with a three-bet to 2,050,000 from Joao Vieira out of the small blind. After a moments consideration, Lijo moved all in. Vieira instantly folded to send a decently sized pot Lijo's way without even seeing a flop.

Hall and Lijo Get All In, Chop

blaisebourgeois • Level 23: Blinds 150,000-300,000, 300,000 ante

Galen Hall opened to 1,050,000 from the small blind and Lander Lijo raised to 2,125,000 from the big blind. Hall shoved and Lijo snapped it off.

Lander Lijo: {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}
Galen Hall: {a-Clubs}{q-Spades}

Both Lijo and Hall had ace-queen but Lijo was drawing to diamonds. The flop came {9-Clubs}{8-Spades}{j-Diamonds}, leaving Lijo to freeroll in search of runner-runner diamonds.

However, the {j-Spades} turn would ensure that the two players would chop it up. The {q-Clubs} completed the board.

Lijo Cracks Vieira's Aces To Survive

Lander Lijo moved all in for 3,000,000 on the button and Joao Vieira called out of the small blind. Galen Hall folded his big blind and Lijo was officially at risk.

Lander Lijo: {q-Hearts}{6-Hearts}
Joao Vieira: {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}

Lijo was in bad shape with little hope of survival. The {8-Spades}{8-Clubs}{k-Hearts} flop did not change much but the {4-Hearts} turn gave Lijo hope with a heart draw. That draw came in on the {5-Hearts} river, prompting wild celebrations from his rail. To rub salt in the wound for Vieira, Galen Hall revealed he had folded two hearts.

Vieira and Hall Trade Big Pots

blaisebourgeois • Level 22: Blinds 125,000-250,000, 250,000 ante

Joao Vieira opened to 500,000 and Galen Hall raised it from the small blind to 2,000,000. Vieira took his time before going all in and Hall snap-foled.

A few hands later, Vieira again opened to 500,000 and Hall again raised it to 2,000,000 from the small blind. This time, Vieira was content to just call.

The flop came {6-Hearts}{5-Spades}{4-Clubs} and both players would tap the table.

On the {3-Hearts} turn, which put four to a straight on the board, both players would check once more.

The {j-Clubs} arrived on the river and Hall would use a time bank before arriving at a bet of 2,800,000 less than a second before his additional 30 seconds were up.

Vieira would go into the tank and spend nearly two minutes making his decision. After using three time banks, leaving just one time bank chip behind, he would make the fold.

Vieira Gets A Fold

Cottrellmkw • Level 22: Blinds 125,000-250,000, 250,000 ante

Joao Vieira limped from the small blind and Galen Hall raised to 900,000 out of the big blind. Vieira called to send the two players to the flop.

Vieira checked on a flop of {6-Hearts}{a-Spades}{7-Hearts} and then called when Hall continued for 1,100,000.

Both players checked through the {2-Spades} turn to the {2-Hearts} river where Vieira took over the betting lead, firing off 2,850,000. Hall considered his options but ultimately decided on a fold to slow down his momentum somewhat as Vieira stacked his newly acquired chips.
