Kacper Swiderski: {k-Spades}{9-Spades}
Milad Shoushi: {8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}

Niveau 16 : 2,000/5,000, 5,000 ante
Juan Pardo
Juan Pardo

Four-way action was on the flop of {5-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}. From early position, Ezequiel Waigel bet 16,000. Alex Kulev folded on the button and Ionut Colciar also removed himself from the hand in the small blind. That left just Juan Pardo to act in the big blind. He thought for a few moments before he jammed all in for about 63,000. Waigel called after about 20 seconds of consideration.

Juan Pardo: {a-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}
Ezequiel Waigel: {a-Hearts}{j-Spades}

Waigel had the lead with ace high and better kicker but Pardo had the flush draw. The turn sent him into the lead another way as the {6-Hearts} came off. The river came the {3-Spades} and Pardo gathered his boosted stack.

Demetrio Caminita

In a battle of shorter stacks, Juan Carlos Vecino was at risk for the last 60,000 and was covered by Conor Beresford.

Juan Carlos Vecino: {6-Spades}{6-Clubs}
Conor Beresford: {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}

The {a-Hearts}{10-Spades}{8-Hearts} flop propelled Beresford into the lead and the {5-Clubs} turn left Vecino with just two outs. One of them appeared on the {6-Diamonds} river as the Estonia-based Spanish poker pro doubled.

Moments later one table over, Jonas Plaar three-bet jammed for 97,000 out of the small blind and the initial raiser Demetrio Caminita instantly called from under the gun.

Jonas Plaar: {a-Diamonds}{q-Spades}
Demetrio Caminita: {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}

No ace appeared on the {j-Clubs}{5-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{2-Spades} runout and Plaar was the next player to head for the payout desk.
