Javier Gomez Zapatero opened to 115,000 and Valentin Messina three-bet to 275,000 to receive a call and head to a heads-up flop of {7-Hearts} {3-Hearts} {3-Diamonds}. The Spaniard check-called a continuation bet of 225,000 and did so for 410,000 after the {A-Clubs} turn.

The {4-Diamonds} on the river saw Gomez Zapatero check once again and Messina gave up to muck once his opponent showed the {5-Spades} {5-Hearts}.

Panka Slips

MarcC • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Dominik Panka's stack had dropped further after a pot versus Javier Gomez Zapatero.

Zapatero opened to 115,00 from mid position and both blinds, Panka and Jean Montury, called. The flop fell {k-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} and Panka led for 165,000. Montury folded but Zapatero tank called before both players checked the {2-Spades} turn. Panka checked the {2-Clubs} river and made a quick fold when his opponent bet.

Off to the Races

[user153638] • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Antonin Duda opened for 105,000 from middle position and Hossein Ensan, the man responsible for bursting the final table bubble in EPT11 Barcelona (the same tournament Dominik Panka finished 11th in), moved all in from the small blind. Duda only had 1.235 million total and opted to call it off.

Ensan: {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}
Duda: {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}

It was a race, and Duda was looking to hold to score the double. The {4-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{9-Clubs} flop kept him in the lead, but the {5-Diamonds} turn gave Ensan wheel outs. Fortunately for Duda, the {J-Diamonds} river was safe and he scored the double.

Top Two Pair for Messina

zedmaster84 • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

fedor Holz opened to 105,000 from the hijack and was called by Valentin Messina in the big blind. The Frenchman check-called one barrel worth 140,000 on the {9-Clubs} {K-Clubs} {10-Clubs} flop and did so for 390,000 on the {5-Spades} turn.

The {2-Hearts} river slowed down the action and both players checked. Messina showed the {K-Spades} {10-Hearts} and that won the pot.

Duda Shoves

zedmaster84 • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Hossein Ensan opened to 105,000 from the hijack and Antonin Duda shoved for 1.2 million out of the big blind to enforce a fold after long consideration. One hand later, Jean Montury opened to 110,000 and Duda called in the small blind, so did Stefan Schillhabel from one seat over.

On the {A-Clubs} {10-Spades} {8-Hearts} flop, Montury's continuation bet for 215,000 did the trick.

Wyrzykiewicz in the Danger Zone

[user153638] • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Valentin Messina opened for 105,000 from the hijack and Remi Wyrzykiewicz three-bet to 250,000 from the cutoff. The rest of the players folded, Messina called, and the flop came down {5-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{6-Spades}, which they both checked.

When the {4-Clubs} appeared on the turn, Messina bet 230,000 and Wyrzykiewicz called to see the {K-Diamonds} complete the board on the river. Messina bet again, this time 310,000, and Wyrzykiewicz thought long and hard before making the call. Messina revealed the {k-Spades}{q-Hearts} for a rivered pair of kings, and it was good as Wyrzykiewicz mucked his hand.

Ensan and Messina Evened Out

zedmaster84 • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Fedor Holz opened to 105,000 and Hossein Ensan called in the big blind. After a {7-Diamonds} {8-Hearts} {10-Hearts} flop, Ensan check-called a bet of 165,000 and then saw the dealer burn and turn the {10-Spades}. Again Ensan checked and folded to the second barrel worth 365,000 by Holz.

Shortly after, there was three-way action to the {8-Clubs} {9-Hearts} {2-Diamonds} flop and it got checked through. On the {J-Spades} turn, Ensan bet 100,000 out of the small blind and Dominik Panka folded in the big blind. Valentin Messina called in the cutoff and the {5-Hearts} river completed the board.

Messina bet 300,000 after the German had checked to him and Ensan eventually paid off the {A-Spades} {J-Spades} of the Frenchman.
