Hand #180: Espen Jorstad limped in from the small blind with {j-Spades}{3-Hearts} and Adrian Attenborough checked in the big blind with {8-Spades}{5-Hearts}. The {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} flop brought a min-bet by Jorstad and Attenborough sent his cards into the muck.

Hand #181: A button raise to 6,000,000 by Jorstad with {k-Clubs}{j-Clubs} won the blinds and big blind ante.

Hand #182: Jorstad raised to 6,000,000 with {a-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} as the first player to act, scooping the pot uncontested once more.

Hand #183: Michael Duek made it 6,500,000 to go from the button with {10-Spades}{8-Spades}. Jorstad called from the big blind with {a-Spades}{6-Hearts} and the flop brought {10-Hearts}{9-Spades}{7-Clubs}. The check by Jorstad triggered a bet worth 6,000,000 by Duek and that won the pot right there.

Hand #184: John Eames opened to 6,000,000 on the button with {5-Spades}{5-Diamonds}, picking up a call by Attenborough in the big blind with {j-Spades}{10-Spades}. The {j-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{6-Clubs} flop brought no betting action and was swiftly followed by the {8-Spades} on the turn. Attenborough led for 4,100,000 and Eames let go.

Hand #185: Adrian Attenborough {9-Spades}{8-Clubs} limped in the small blind and Michael Duek {7-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} called. The flop was {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} and Duek folded to a continuation bet from Attenborough.
