zedmaster84 • Level 30: 60,000-120,000, 20,000 ante

Hand #21: Uri Reichenstein raised to 260,000 from the button and Andreas Chalkiadakis called in the big blind to see a flop of {9-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}. Chalkiadakis quickly checked, and Reichenstein checked behind.

On the {K-Hearts} turn, Chalkiadakis checked and then faced a delayed continuation bet worth 340,000 by Reichenstein. Chalkiadakis called and the {8-Clubs} river saw the Greek once again check, Reichenstein checked behind. Chalkiadakis showed the {10-Spades}{7-Spades} and Reichenstein almost mucked the winning {K-Spades}{2-Hearts}, mentioning in table chat that he thought the seven would have made a straight.

Hand #22: Sebastian Malec raised to 270,000 from the hijack and Reichenstein asked for his stack, then called from one seat over in the cutoff. Zorlu Er asked "How much?" in the big blind and peeked at his cards before sending them into the muck.

On the heads-up flop of {J-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{2-Spades}, Malec checked to Reichenstein and then faced a bet of 120,000 by the German. Malec called and the duo headed to the {A-Spades} turn. Malec quickly checked, and Reichenstein checked behind.

After the {5-Diamonds} river, Malec checked. Reichenstein bet 440,000 and Malec quickly called to see his opponent turn over {A-Hearts}{2-Hearts}. Malec had that beat with {A-Clubs}{Q-Spades} to win a juicy pot.

Hand #23: Chalkiadakis raised to 260,000 from the button and Zorlu Er three-bet to 710,000 in the small blind. Harcharan Dogra Dogra initially asked for a count, but then quickly folded. Chalkiadakis eventually folded and the players headed into a 20-minute break.
