The Double Up Galore Continues

Niveau 18 : 4,000/8,000, 8,000 ante

Nicolas Malo clashed with Simen Gulbrandsen and was at risk for 241,000 on the {q-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} flop.

Malo held the {k-Spades}{k-Clubs} for an overpair while Gulbrandsen had {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts} for top pair. The {7-Spades} turn and {k-Diamonds} river kept Malo's hand best and he doubled.

Next up, Malo put Matthew Wantman to the test who was all-in for 168,000 with the {q-Diamonds}{q-Spades}. Malo only had {5-Clubs}{5-Spades} and found no sweat on the {8-Hearts}{3-Spades}{2-Spades}{2-Hearts}{a-Diamonds} board.

Jouhkimainen Finds a Fold

Niveau 18 : 4,000/8,000, 8,000 ante

With about 140,000 in the middle, Bryce Yockey checked in the small blind and Joni Jouhkimainen bet 38,000 in the cutoff. Yockey called, bringing an {a-Hearts}. He then shoved all in for 187,000 effective. Jouhkimainen tanked several minutes.

"I think I'm supposed to fold this," he said.

Still, he thought another couple of minutes before conceding. He asked to see a card.

"I can't in a pot like that," Yockey said with a smile.

The Cohen Comeback Continues

Niveau 18 : 4,000/8,000, 8,000 ante

At blinds of 2,000-4,000 with a big blind ante of 4,000, Joel Cohen was down to 1,500 in chips. The money bubble was not reached yet. Who is still in contention with 51 players remaining? Cohen, of course.

He was moved to a new table just now and faced the raise to 18,000 by Gareth Pepper, Cohen jammed for 94,000 on the button and Rishabh Vekaria in the small blind cold-called. Pepper gave it some thought and folded to create the following showdown.

Joel Cohen: {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}
Rishabh Vekaria: {k-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}

On a board of {8-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}, Cohen survived yet another all-in showdown and now has a playable stack.

On a flop of {10-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}, Russell Thomas was the at risk player for what appeared to be 120,000 and table big stack Rishabh Vekaria looked him up.

Russell Thomas: {a-Hearts}{8-Spades}
Rishabh Vekaria: {10-Hearts}{7-Hearts}

Both had flopped a pair and Vekaria was in the lead, which he kept after the {3-Diamonds} turn and {3-Spades} river gave both players a full house.

Yockey Eliminates Fairrie; Doubles Up Lamb

Niveau 18 : 4,000/8,000, 8,000 ante

Bryce Yockey held {3-Hearts}{3-Spades} against the {k-Clubs}{10-Clubs} of Thomas Fairrie. Fairrie flopped a ten on the {5-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{10-Spades} giving him the lead.

"I'm thinking of the six of clubs," said Yockey, which would give him a straight draw, but the {3-Clubs} was much more immediate help as he turned a set. The river was the {2-Spades} and Fairrie was eliminated.

A short while later, Ben Lamb was all in with {a-Hearts}{k-Spades} against the {9-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} of Yockey for 205,000.

The board ran out {10-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{k-Hearts} and Lambd oubled up.
