Sebastian Malec

Hand #29: Reich raised to 600,000 with {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts} from under the gun. Malec had {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades} and called before checking the flop of {6-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{9-Spades} along with his opponent.

The turn of {J-Hearts} opened up the flush draw, but the river {8-Spades} saw both check again and although not everyone at the table loved the chop pot, both players in the hand seemed fine with it.

Hand #30: Sebastian Malec bet 750,000 in the small blind with {J-Spades}{8-Hearts} and Reichenstein called in the big blind with {9-Diamonds}{8-Spades}. The flop of {Q-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} saw Malec continued for 1.2 million, and Reichenstein made the call.

A big pot now, and turn of {8-Clubs} saw four million in the middle already. Malec checked, but Reichenstein was not in the mood to allow a free river card, and he bet 2.2 million. Malec had a huge decision to make. Eventually, he folded it, and Reichenstein re-took the chip lead.

Hand #31: Malec bet 500,000 with {4-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} from the button , but Reichenstein held {6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} in the small blind. Reichenstein made it 1,375,000 and Malec made the call.

The flop of {3-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{A-Hearts} saw Reichenstein check to Malec, who made it 975,000. Reichenstein called, and the turn of {A-Diamonds} was an intriguing card. Again Reichenstein checked to Malec, and the Polish player took his time before betting out 1.7 million.

Reichenstein folded the best hand and Malec raises his arms to his rail, who celebrate to a man. With that vital pot, Malec takes the chip lead.

Hand #32: Malec raised to 575,000 with {A-Spades}{7-Diamonds} from under the gun. That's enough to take it down.
