Hand #126:

Raul Paez: {x-}{x-}/{3-Clubs}{5-Spades}{j-Spades}{a-Clubs}
Mike Leah: {x-}{x-}/{6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}
Matt Vengrin: {x-}{x-}/{10-Clubs}{3-}

Paez completed, Vengrin raised and Leah cold-called. Paez made the call as well. Leah took the lead when he picked up a second low diamond, and Paez was the only caller. He kept the lead on fifth, but Paez bet sixth when he got his third wheel card. Paez bet the end as well, and Leah went into the tank.

"I'm gonna need a few minutes here, guys," he said, seeming anguished. "You have to have a wheel," he muttered to himself shortly thereafter.

Finally, he slammed in a call. Leah was right about the wheel, and Paez even had a six-high straight to go with it, showing {2-Spades}{6-Spades}{4-Clubs}.

Hand #128:

Matt Vengrin completed with the {6-Clubs}, Leah raised with the {10-Spades}, and Vengrin re-raised to 66,000, putting Leah all in. He called, and the boards ran out like this:

Leah: ({10-Clubs}{4-Hearts} / {10-Spades}{a-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{q-Hearts}
Vengrin: ({6-Hearts}{3-Hearts} / {6-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{6-Spades}{a-Spades}

Vengrin turned over the {j-Diamonds} for a full house, leaving Leah drawing dead. He turned over the {7-Clubs} on seventh, giving him a flush for kicks and giggles.

The Canadian will walk away with $37,552 for his efforts.
