Andrew Lichtenberger
Andrew Lichtenberger

Justin Conley bet 45,000 on the {Q-Hearts}{10-Spades}{5-Hearts} flop and Andrew Lichtenberger raised all in for 316,000. Conley took a minute, then called with the {9-Hearts}{8-Hearts} for a combo draw. Lichtenberger held the {K-Hearts}{K-Clubs} for an overpair.

The turn was the {9-Diamonds} and the river the {Q-Diamonds}. Lichtenberger's two pair of kings and queens was best and he doubled up.

On the next hand, Lichtenberger raised to 16,000 from the hijack seat and Keith Lehr called from the big blind to see the {9-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} flop come down. Lehr checked and Lichtenberger checked behind.

Lehr attempted to fire 17,000 on the {J-Hearts} turn, but Lichtenberger put in a raise to 49,000 and won the pot.

Darren Elias doubles with ace-high.

Carter Phillips and Darren Elias were heads up with the board reading {k-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{5-Spades}. Phillips led for 23,000 from under the gun, and Elias called. The {j-Clubs} turned, and Phillips slowed down, checking to Elias who fired 42,000. Phillips moved all in for effectively 205,000, and Elias tank-called with just ace-high.

Phillips: {8-Clubs}{6-Clubs}
Elias: {a-Hearts}{9-Clubs}

Elias dodged a ton of outs when the {k-Spades} completed the board, doubling to nearly half a million chips.

"That qualifies as sick," Eddy Sabat told Elias after the hand.

Nishijima Doubles Reiman, Then Doubles Up


On one of the first hands back from break, Ty Reiman was all in and at risk preflop against Thiago Nishijima. Reiman's {a-Spades}{k-Hearts} dominated Nishijima's {a-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}, and the {5-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} flop actually gave Nishijima an extra out. The {j-Clubs} on the turn reduced Nishijima's win outs to two, and the {7-Spades} bricked on the river.

Reiman doubled to 315,000, while Nishijima dropped to around 70,000.

A few hands later, Nishijima was all in with {k-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} against an opponent's {q-Hearts}{q-Spades}. The board ran out {2-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{4-Hearts}{9-Spades}, and Nishijima doubled to 144,000.
