Vaskaboinikau Gains Ground

[user339870] • Niveau 21: 50,000-100,000, 100,000 ante

Jason Koon raised to 200,000 from the button and Mikalai Vaskaboinikau called from the big blind.

The flop came {7-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} and both players checked.

The turn brought the {5-Spades} and Vaskaboinikau bet 200,000. Koon called.

The {10-Clubs} fell on the river and Vaskaboinikau bet again, 400,000 this time. Koon tossed his hand into the muck and Vaskaboinikau took the chips.

Koon Extends His Lead

[user339872] • Niveau 21: 50,000-100,000, 100,000 ante

Mikalai Vaskaboinikau limped in on the button and Jason Koon checked his option. The flop came {5-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{2-Spades} and Koon check-called a bet of 100,000 from Vaskaboinikau.

The turn paired the board with the {2-Hearts} and Koon checked again. Vaskaboinikau fired another 200,000 and Koon made the call.

The {6-Clubs} peeled off on the river and Koon took a moment before putting together a bet of 525,000. As Vaskaboinikau's time clock was wearing down, he made the call and Koon showed him a straight with {k-Spades}{4-Diamonds}. Vaskaboinikau flashed the {a-Hearts}{5-Hearts} before sending chips to Koon.

Koon Takes the Chip Lead

[user270022] • Niveau 21: 50,000-100,000, 100,000 ante

Jason Koon limped and then called a raise to 300,000 by Mikalai Vaskaboinikau. The flop fanned out {4-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} and Vaskaboinikau continued with a bet of 300,000 which Koon flatted.

Vaskaboinikau fired a second bullet when the {k-Diamonds} touched down worth 600,000 and once again Koon just flatted.

The {6-Clubs} completed the board and Vaskaboinikau slowed down, checking to Koon. Koon moved all-in and Vaskaboinikau folded.

Koon flashed the {5-Hearts}{5-Spades} flopping a full house as he tossed his cards in the muck.

Vaskaboinikau Tilts the Scales

[user339872] • Niveau 20: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante

After Jason Koon took down the first four hands of heads-up action, Mikalai Vaskaboinikau started to give some of his strategies away.

"I play better preflop. I don't like playing post-flop with you."

A humbled Koon just laughed and assured his opponent that it was still early. Vaskaboinikau might have been lulling Koon into a false sense of security as the Belarussian took down the next few pots with some post-flop play.

Timothy Adams Eliminated in 3rd Place ($196,500)

Mikalai Vaskaboinikau opened and called a three-bet shove by Timothy Adams.

Adams: {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}
Vaskaboinikau: {a-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}

Adams was in great shape to double up, until the river. It was smooth sailing through to the turn as the board ran out {10-Spades}{5-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{7-Spades}. Unfortunately, Vaskaboinikau channeled his inner Barry Greenstein and the {a-Hearts} landed sending Adams to the rail in third place, good for $196,500.
