Shaun Deeb won a three-way pot against Robert Mizrachi and Owais Ahmed when the former bet the {q-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{4-Hearts} turn to force a fold from Ahmed and receive a check-call from Deeb. They checked the {j-Hearts} river and Deeb tabled {k-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{4-Diamonds} for a full house.

Short stack Ed Vartughian then ended up all in twice, once against Ken Aldridge and the second time against David Benyamine.

In the first hand, Vartughian got it in with {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} for a flopped straight on {8-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}. Aldridge had {a-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{3-Spades} and the {10-Hearts} turn and {8-Spades} river run out ensured the split pot.

Up next Benyamine held {a-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{10-Spades}{4-Spades} against Vartughian's {a-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and the {k-Hearts}{7-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{3-Spades} board resulted in a split pot again.

"All this for one chip. My friend keeps telling me all I need is a chip and two chairs," Benyamine joked.
