Yakuba Doubles Through Van Hoof

• Level 5: 300-600, 600 ante

Jorryt van Hoof limped in from the middle position and so did Yuan Li in the hijack and Dinesh Alt in the cutoff. Anton Yakuba raised to 3,600 on the button. Yake Wu was sitting in the big blind and was contemplating his options for a bit before three-betting to 12,600. Everyone folded to Yahuba who four-bet shoved for 40,400. Wu snap-called.

Anton Yakuba: {j-Hearts}{j-Clubs}
Yake Wu: {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}

The board ran out {6-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{5-Spades}{10-Hearts} for Yakuba to hold with the pocket pair to double up with.

Burns Busts Grafton

• Level 4: 200-500, 500 ante

Kahle Burns was sporting a bigger stack than previously and Sam Grafton had left the table, Burns was kind enough to relay what had happened:

Burns had opened to 1,300 from the middle position and had 2 callers. Grafton three-bet to 6,000 on the button and Burns was the only one to make the call with {10-Clubs}{10-}.

The flop came {7-}{6-}{4-} rainbow, Burns check-called the 10,500 continuation-bet of Grafton.

The turn was the {4-Clubs} to bring the flush draw, Burns checked again and Grafton shoved. Burns called to see Grafton held {9-Hearts}{8-Hearts} for the open-ended straight draw. The river didn't change things and Grafton was sent away from the table.
