Hands: 6-9: Slow Going

• Level 1: 15,000-30,000, 0 ante

Hand #6: Radoja opened for 60,000, and Nguyen surrendered his blind.

Hand #7: Nguyen opened for 60,000, Radoja called, and the dealer flopped the {a-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{9-Spades}. Radoja checked and called a bet of 50,000, and he check-called a bet of 140,000 on the {3-Hearts} turn. When the {2-Clubs} appeared on the river, Radoja checked for a third time, but Nguyen checked behind, avoiding the trap set by Radoja and his {A-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} for the wheel straight.

Hand #8: Radoja limped in on the button, and Nguyen checked to see the flop of {10-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}. Nguyen then check-folded to Radoja's 30,000 feeler bet.

Hand #9: Nguyen raised to 60,000 and Radoja came along, bringing a flop of {10-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{j-Clubs} to the board. After both players checked, the {7-Clubs} dropped on the turn, and Radoja led out for 70,000. Nguyen called to see the {K-Spades} arrive on the river. After a bet of 150,000 and a call on the river, both players showed down two pair, but Nguyen's {K-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} was best over Radoja's {J-Spades}{10-Clubs}.

This hand could have prompted a larger confrontation, but both players appear content to play small pots at this point in the match.

Nguyen Pushing Back

• Level 1: 15,000-30,000, 0 ante

Hand #3: Don Nguyen had the button. He opened to 60,000 and Mark Radoja put him all in. Nguyen snapped him off and showed {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades} which was crushing Radoja's {A-Spades}{10-Diamonds}.

Despite Radoja being crushed, the two chopped the pot when the board ran out {4-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{J-Spades}{4-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}, each only playing their ace-high.

Hand #4: Radoja made it 60,000 from the button. Nguyen shipped all in and Radoja folded.

Hand #5: Don Nguyen made it 60,000 from the button and Radoja flat called. The flop brought {7-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{8-Clubs} and Radoja checked. Nguyen continued for 50,000 and Radoja stuck around. Fourth street saw the {10-Diamonds} hit and Radoja took a swing at it with 160,000. Nguyen moved all in over the top for 750,000 and Radoja folded his hand. Both players still have two lammers that have not been cashed in.

Hand #1: Don Nguyen opened for 60,000 and Mark Radoja came along to see a flop of {4-Spades}{3-Clubs}{6-Hearts} arrive. Radoja then checked, Nguyen bet 50,000, and Radoja raised to 140,000. Nguyen called to take a turn card, which came {4-Diamonds}. Radoja checked again, but folded to Nguyen's second barrel of 60,000.

Hand #2: Radoja opened for 60,000 and Nguyen called, bringing a flop of {8-Hearts}{a-Spades}{5-Hearts} on board. Nguyen then check-raised Radoja's bet of 55,000, making it 140,000 to go. Radoja called and the {A-Diamonds} fell on the turn. Nguyen led out this time, for a bet of 160,000, and after a call by Radoja, we saw the {Q-Diamonds} come on the river. Nguyen fired again, betting 320,000, but he insta-folded when Radoja announced himself all-in.

Hand #87: Mark Radoja announced all in from the button and Justin Bonomo folded.

Hand #88: Bonomo moved all in from the button and Radoja snapped him off.

Bonomo: {J-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}
Radoja: {A-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}

Radoja was out in front and seized a death grip on the hand when the flop brought {3-Clubs}{A-Spades}{6-Hearts}. The {K-Diamonds} on the turn meant Bonomo was dead heading to the final street and the two competitors stood up and shook hands.

"I hope you win the bracelet," Bonomo said to Radoja as the meaningless {3-Spades} finished off the board.

Radoja will be playing Don Nguyen in the finals later today.

Bonomo Fires Last Bullet

• Level 5: 20,000-40,000, 0 ante

Hand #86: Justin Bonomo moved all in from the button for 690,000 and Mark Radoja called out of the big blind.

Bonomo: {Q-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}
Radoja: {A-Hearts}{8-Spades}

The flop kept Radoja in the lead by pairing his ace with {k-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{A-Clubs} but Bonomo picked up a flush draw when the {4-Diamonds} hit the turn. Ultimately, Radoja clinched the lead when the {3-Clubs} finished off the board. This forced Bonomo to cash in his last add on and he's now sitting on just 640,000.

Hands 82-85: The Calm Before the Storm

• Level 5: 20,000-40,000, 0 ante

Hand #82: Bonomo surrendered his small blind.

Hand #83: Radoja limped in for 60,000, and folded when Bonomo moved all-in.

Hand #84: Bonomo limped in, and Radoja checked his option to see the {k-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{k-Hearts} fall on the flop. Both players checked to see the {3-Clubs} arrive on the turn, and a bet of 60,000 from Radoja took it down.

Hand #85: Radoja limped in, Bonomo checked, and the dealer fanned a flop of {9-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{3-Spades}. Both players knuckled the felt and the {q-Spades} came on the turn. Bonomo led out for 80,000 and Radoja called, bringing us to the {K-Hearts} on the river. Bonomo then check-folded to Radoja's 180,000 bet.

Hand 81: Radoja's Revenge

• Level 5: 20,000-40,000, 0 ante

Hand #81 Radoja opened for 120,000 and Bonomo called to take a flop of {q-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{6-Clubs}. After a check to Radoja, who bet 65,000, Bonomo raised to 200,000 even. Radoja reraised for the minimum, making it 335,000 to play, and Bonomo jammed it n over the top. Radoja quickly called and the cards were exposed.

Showdown:

Radoja: {Q-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}
Bonomo: {10-Hearts}{2-Hearts}

Radoja was out in front with his pair of queens, and Bonomo would need help to overcome top pair. The turn came {8-Clubs} and the river {A-Spades}, preserving Radoja's lead and giving him a massive double to take over the chip lead.
