[user339872] • Niveau 27: 30,000-60,000, 60,000 ante

Hand #31: David Baker shipped all in from the hijack and everyone folded.

Hand #32: Ari Engel raised to 135,000 from under the gun and Truyen Nguyen called from the big blind. The flop fell {10-Spades}{7-Clubs}{4-Hearts} and Nguyen check-called a bet of 110,000 from Engel. The turn was the {4-Clubs} and both players checked to the {2-Clubs} on the river. Two more checks and Nguyen tabled {j-Clubs}{10-Clubs} for a flush to take down the pot.

Hand #33: Pablo Melogno limped in on the button and Engel checked his big blind. The flop came {a-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{2-Clubs} and both players checked to the {k-Diamonds} on the turn. Engel checked and Melogno bet 60,000 which got Engel to fold.

Hand #34: Melogno limped in again and Keeline was his opponent in the big blind this time. Both players checked the {9-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{7-Diamonds} flop and the {2-Diamonds} landed on the turn. Keeline bet 85,000 and Melogno called to see the {10-Clubs} on the river.

Keeline slid out a bet of 350,000 and Melogno tanked for a couple of minutes before calling. Keeline tabled {j-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} for a straight and Melogno sent his cards to the muck.

Hand #30: Ari Engel opened to 135,000 in middle position and Ryan Olisar shoved all in for 580,000 in the small blind. Engel asked for a count and thought for a minute before making the call.

Ari Engel: {k-Hearts}{10-Clubs}
Ryan Olisar: {9-Spades}{9-Clubs}

It turned out to be a coin flip and Olisar stayed in the lead with a flop of {8-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}. The {2-Spades} on the turn was also a safe card but the {k-Spades} on the river spelled an end to Olisar's tournament in eighth place.

Hand #25: Ben Keeline raised first to act to 95,000, called by big blind Ari Engel. Engel check-called a bet of 85,000 on the {j-Spades}{7-Hearts}{2-Clubs} flop, after which the flow of chips to pot stopped. They saw a free {10-Hearts}{5-Clubs} turn and river, Engel showed {8-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} for two pair and won the pot.

Hand #26: Wilbern Hoffman took the min-pot with a preflop raise to 135,000.

Hand #27: Hoffman limped in under the gun, Engel did the same on the button, as well as David Baker in the big blind for no further cost. They saw all five community cards for no further cost.

"I got it," said Baker, the board standing {6-Clubs}{j-Spades}{9-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} and his {q-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} did, in fact, have it. The others mucked.

Hand #28: Pablo Melogno raised in middle position to 130,000 and Hoffman defended his big blind. From then on, it was Melogno doing the calling as Hoffman led all three streets. He bet 200,000 on the {7-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{9-Hearts} flop, 350,000 on the {10-Spades} turn and 500,000 on the {3-Spades} river. Melogno called all bets, but mucked when Hoffman turned over {j-Clubs}{9-Clubs}.

Hand #29: James Hughes moved all in with no callers.

Hand #23: Hoffman raised to 125,000 in the cutoff and Pablo Melogno defended from the big blind. The flop fell {a-Clubs}{8-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and Melogno check-folded to a bet of 225,000 after the clock was called.

• Niveau 26: 25,000-50,000, 50,000 ante

Hands #12-16: Olisar the Most Active

[user339872] • Niveau 26: 25,000-50,000, 50,000 ante

Hand #12: Pablo Melogno opened to 115,000 in middle position and Ryan Olisar shipped all in for 375,000 from the big blind. Melogno still took a minute before making the call to put Olisar at risk.

Olisar turned over {4-Spades}{4-Clubs} and was flipping against the {q-Spades}{9-Hearts} of Melogno. The board ran out {k-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{k-Spades} and Olisar held on to earn a double up.

Hand #13: The action folded to Olisar in the small blind and he shoved all in. James Hughes was down to around 500,000 in the big blind and he folded.

Hand #14: Olisar moved all in again on the button this time and both of the blinds folded.

Hand #15: James Hughes pushed all in on the button for 460,000 and picked up the pot.
