Nick Yunis opened to 26,000 from the cutoff seat, and Leonid Bilokur three-bet to 62,000 on the button. The blinds released, and the action was back on Yunis. He thought for a bit, then four-bet to 144,000. Bilokur five-bet shoved for 557,000, and Yunis shrugged, then called.

Showdown
Yunis: {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}
Bilokur: {a-Spades}{k-Spades}

The board ran {3-Spades}{2-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{4-Clubs}, and Bilokur doubled to 1.15 million chips. Yunis sunk to just 150,000.

Duhamel Wins a Monster, Back over 1 Million Chips

Jonathan Duhamel is stacking more chips.

Four players saw a flop of {9-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{k-Spades}, including Nick Yunis, Nicolas Fierro, Team PokerStars Pro Jonathan Duhamel, and Team PokerStars Online Member Randy Lew. The action checked to Yunis on the button, and he tossed out 56,000 into a pot of about 85,000. Only Duhamel called.

The turn was the {3-Hearts}, both players checked, and the river brought the {6-Spades}. Duhamel led for 86,000, and Yunis tanked for quite some time before raising to 200,000. It was Duhamel's turn to sink into the tank, and he did so for a minute or so before min-raising to 335,000. Yunis begrudgingly called, and Duhamel turned over {a-Spades}{q-Spades} for an ace-high flush.

Yunis mucked, and dropped all the way down to 705,000 chips.

Matt Marafioti - Out.
Matt Marafioti - Out.

Matt Marafioti has been nursing his stack for the majority of the day today, and moments ago, when the action folded to him in the small blind, he shoved for his last 160,000 or so. Jason Koon called in the big blind, and the hands were opened.

Showdown
Marafioti: {7-Diamonds}{7-Spades}
Koon: {a-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}

Marafioti was ahead, and remained ahead after the flop fell {q-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{10-Spades}. The {a-Spades} spiked on the turn however, and Marafioti was one card away from elimination. The {6-Hearts} completed the board, missing Marafioti, and he was indeed eliminated from the tournament.

Team PokerStars Pro and 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event winner Jonathan Duhamel raised to 21,000 on the button and Nick Yunis made the call from the big blind. Then, the dealer ran out the {K-Spades}{10-Clubs}{6-Clubs} flop and Yunis checked. Duhamel's continuation bet was worth 24,000, but he was met with a check-raise to 72,000 from Yunis. Duhamel called.

The {Q-Clubs} landed on the turn and possibly completed some draws. Yunis slid out more chips, betting 140,000. Duhamel didn't take too long before folding and Yunis moved to over one million.

Nicolas Fierro wins another pot.
Nicolas Fierro wins another pot.

Leonid Bilokur opened to 20,000 from the cutoff seat, and Nicolas Fierro called on the button. The flop fell {2-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}, and Bilokur led for 29,000. Fierro called.

Both players checked after the {7-Spades} turned, and Bilokur checked again after the {3-Diamonds} was dealt on the river. Fierro reached for two stacks of blue T5,000 chips, removed four of them, and slid 180,000 forward into a pot of about 140,000.

Bilokur thought for a few seconds, flashed the {a-Diamonds}, and mucked his hand. Fierro mucked both cards face-down, and raked in the pot.
