The river fell the {4-Diamonds}, Allison quickly moved all in for 17,400, putting his opponent to the test. Shultz thought for just a few moments before slamming in enough chips to call.

Allison turned over {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts} for ace high and Shultz tabled {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades} for tens over fours, securing the pot and eliminating Allison in the process.

Tsinis Applies Pressure

Niveau 10 : 400/800, 100 ante

Arkadiy Tsinis opened to 1,800 in middle position and got two calls behind. The flop brought out {4-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} and Tsinis continued into the pot for 3,000 and he was three-bet to 6,000. The other player got out of the way and Tsinis called.

It came a {2-Diamonds} on the turn and Tsinis check-called a bet of 3,100. The {q-Clubs} completed the board and Tsinis took the betting initiative, moving all in for 17,000 or so. It garnered a fold and Tsinis took it down.
