Hand #258:

Joseph Hertzog: {x-}{x-} / {q-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{7-Clubs} / {x-}
Daniel Idema: {x-}{x-} / {j-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{5-Spades} / {x-}

Idema brought it in, then called when Hertzog completed. Hertzog bet out on every street, including seventh where he bet blind, and Idema called him down.

When Idema called on seventh, Hertzog turned over his first two cards ({a-Clubs}{4-Clubs}), then ripped over his seventh card, the {7-Hearts}. Idema mucked his hand, and Hertzog dragged in a massive pot, regaining the lead.

"Too many outs," Hertzog chuckled.

Idema showed {a-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} for aces up.

Shots!

[user249920] • Level 27: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Both of our heads-up combatants have indulged in a double shot of Jagermeister.

Meanwhile, fifth street is a rare sight; we've gotten there just once in the past 20 hands.

Hand #208:

Paez was left with 160,000 after Hand #206, and the money went in on third street two hands later against Joseph Hertzog.

Paez: ({j-Diamonds}{3-Spades}) / {2-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} / {x-}

Hertzog ripped over the {4-Hearts} on seventh, making eights and fours, and Paez shoed the {6-Spades} for king-high.

Paez hit the rail in third place, earning $71,736. There will now be a short break before heads-up play begins.

Paez Keeps Sliding

[user249920] • Level 27: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Hand #198:

Raul Paez: {x-}{x-}/{a-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{7-Spades}{9-Clubs}
Daniel Idema: {x-}{x-}/{5-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{q-Spades}{2-Clubs}

Idema completed on the first round, and Paez raised it. Idema made the call, then took the lead on fourth when he caught a second low and Paez caught the queen. The back-and-forth continued on fifth, as Paez bet and Idema called. Both checked sixth, and Idema bet seventh. Paez made the call.

"Two pair," Idema said quietly, turning over {5-}{3-}{6-} for sixes and fives. Paez mucked in frustration.

Hand #196:

Joseph Hertzog: {x-}{x-} / {5-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} / {x-}
Daniel Idema: {x-}{x-} / {6-Diamonds}{j-Spades} (FOLD)
Raul Paez: {x-}{x-} / {j-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{3-Clubs} / {x-}

Hertzog brought it in, Idema completed, and Paez raised. Both Hertzog and Idema called. Paez led out on fourth, Hertzog instantly raised, and only Paez called. As soon as the {7-Diamonds} dropped in front of Hertzog, he fired out a bet. He bet quickly again on sixth, then bet dark on seventh. Paez called

Hertzog flipped over {4-Clubs}{6-Hearts} for sevens and fours with an open-ended straight draw. He then ripped over the {8-Diamonds}, giving him a straight and an eighty-seven low.

Paez could only shake his head as he showed {j-Hearts}{10-Spades} and angrily mucked his seventh card face down.

"What?" Hertzog said after the hand, continuing to needle Paez. "I didn't have cheese. Swiss cheese. I had cheddar!"
