Landier Four Bet Shoves, Buck Bluffs Gnidash

• Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Hand #6: The action folded to Rory Mathews and he made it 32,000 and he collected the blinds and antes.

Hand #7: Kirby Martin raised to 35,000 from the hi-jack only to have Jonathan Bennett three-bet to 80,000 next to act. From the big blind Bryce Landier moved all in for roughly 600,000 and both Martin and Bennett folded.

Hand #8: Jonathan Bennett bumped it up to 32,000 from the hi-jack only to have Norbert Szecsi move all in from the big blind. Bennett mucked and Szecsi picked up the pot.

Hand #9: Denis Gnidash opened to 38,000 from under the gun and collected the blinds and antes.

Hand #10: Chris DeMaci opened to 32,000 from the lo-jack and Dana Buck made the call from the small blind only to have Denis Gnidash three-bet to 92,000 from the large blind.

DeMaci folded, but Buck called as the flop fell down {3-Spades}{4-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} and Buck led for 100,000. Gnidash called as the {4-Clubs} rolled off on the turn and Buck led for 150,000 with Gnidash making the call as the {7-Hearts} completed the board on the river.

Buck slid in a bet of 230,000 and Gnidash went deep into the tank for over two minutes before folding as Buck tabled his {Q-}{6-} for complete air.

Hand #11: Ariel Celestino raised to 34,000 from middle position, and Denis Gnidash moved all in from the small blind. Celestino folded after action came back to him.

Martin Jams in a Four-Bet Pot

[user249920] • Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Hand #1: Ariel Celestino raised to 34,000. Denis Gnidash called out of the big blind. Gnidash checked the {4-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{3-Clubs} flop, and Ariel's 36,000 bet took the pot.

Hand #2: Gnidash took the pot with a bet on the flop.

Hand #3: Celestino raised to 34,000. Kirby Martin reraised to 55,000 from the big blind. Celestino repopped to 110,000, and Martin made the call. Martin then checked the raggedy {3-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} flop. Celestino fired 114,000. Martin jammed it in, and Celestino quickly folded.

Hand #4: Chris DeMaci came out with a raise to 32,000 under the gun. Everyone folded.

Hand #5: Bryce Landier opened to 40,000. DeMaci called from the big blind. He checked the {8-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} flop, and Landier bet 50,000. DeMaci went nowhere. The turn came {4-Clubs}, and DeMaci checked again. Landier bet 75,000, and DeMaci called him once again to see the {5-Spades} fall on the river. DeMaci checked and saw his opponent bet 75,000 once more. DeMaci finally gave up.

Daniel Neilson Eliminated in 10th Place ($19,939)

• Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

The action folded round to Dana Buck in the small blind and he asked Daniel Neilson how much he had. Neilson responded by saying, "about 235!"

Buck then announced he was all in and Neilson made the call from the big blind.

Neilson: {K-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}
Buck: {9-Spades}{6-Clubs}

The dealer spread a {6-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{9-Clubs} flop putting Buck out in the lead, but when the {Q-Spades} landed on the turn, Neilson now had outs to a straight.

Unfortunately for the Australian, the river landed the {3-Spades} and he was bounced out in 10th place for a $19,939 payday.

Martin Makes a Surprise Straight

[user249920] • Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

In the last hand before the redraw, Kirby Martin and Norbert Szecsi saw a {4-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{a-Diamonds} flop heads up. Martin fired 60,000, and Szecsi called him. The turn paired the board with the {3-Clubs}, and Szecsi watched his opponent bet 75,000 this time. Again, Szecsi called. Martin fired a final bullet on the {5-Clubs} river, 125,000. Szecsi leaned back in his seat and pondered before announcing a call.

Martin rolled over {2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} for a rivered straight.

"Nice hand," someone said at the table.

"Yeah it was, because I hit a straight," he replied.
