Brian Altman

Hand #82: Scott Wellenbach raised to 250,000 on the button with {K-Spades}{10-Clubs} and Daniel Strelitz jammed the small blind with {2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} for 2,480,000. Chino Rheem in the big blind asked for a count with {4-Spades}{4-Clubs} and folded, as did Wellenbach.

"Pocket threes again?" Pavel Veksler said and Rheem replied he had pocket fours.

Hand #83: Rheem limped with {K-Hearts}{3-Hearts} and Brian Altman on the big blind squeezed to 400,000 with {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}, Rheem called. The flop brought {5-Hearts}{3-Spades}{2-Spades} and that paired up Rheem to take the lead, he checked and Altman checked behind.

On the {5-Diamonds} turn, Rheem bet 400,000 and Altman stared him down before making the call. The {Q-Hearts} came on the river and both players checked, Rheem claimed the pot.

Hand #84: Rheem raised to 225,000 on the button with {9-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} and Altman jammed the small blind with the {8-Hearts}{8-Clubs}, no call followed.

Hand #85: Pavel Veksler raised the small blind with {10-Spades}{4-Spades} and Vicent Bosca called in the big blind with {8-Hearts}{3-Hearts}. The flop brought {A-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{5-Clubs} and a bet of 250,000 did the trick to win the pot for Veksler.

Hand #86: Veksler raised the button to 200,000 with {8-Spades}{7-Hearts} and Wellenbach flat-called in the big blind with {Q-Spades}{10-Clubs}. The flop came {Q-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} and Wellenbach checked, then called a continuation bet of 175,000 by Veksler. Both checked the {7-Diamonds} turn and the {3-Spades} river, Wellenbach claimed the pot.
