Hand #98: Joe Curcio sat in early position and he raised to 210,000. Jared Koppel called from the big blind and they went to the flop.

The flop was dealt {8-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{2-Clubs} and both players checked. The turn was the {k-Hearts} and Koppel check-called a bet of 350,000. The river was the {7-Spades} and both players checked again.

Koppel was playing {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts} and he won the hand with a flush.

Hand #99: Curcio raised from under the gun to 210,000 and he was called by Koppel in the small blind and Matt Russell in the big blind.

The flop was {10-Spades}{7-Spades}{3-Diamonds} and Curcio took it down with a continuation bet.

Hand #100: Francis Anderson raised to 210,000 from the cutoff and small blind Russell and big blind Curcio called.

The flop was {j-Hearts}{5-Spades}{5-Diamonds} and it checked to Anderson who continued with a bet of 215,000. It was just called by Russell and Curcio got out of the way.

The {k-Hearts} turn-card was dealt and Russell check-called another bet by Anderson. They both checked on the {2-Diamonds} river and Russell won the pot with {a-Diamonds}{j-Spades}.

Hand #101: Curcio limped the small blind and big blind Dong Sheng Peng checked. {q-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} landed on the flop and Curcio bet 165,000. Peng called the bet to see the {a-Hearts} on the turn.

Curcio bet another 250,000 on the turn but Peng three-bet to 750,000 this time around. Curcio got out of the way and the pot was awarded to Peng.

Hand #102: Jared Koppel raised to 210,000 from the hijack and Joseph Liberta defended his big blind. The flop was dealt {a-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} and Liberta check-called a bet of 150,000.

The turn was the {a-Diamonds} and Liberta check-called another time. The bet was 325,000 this time.

The {4-Spades} river completed the board and Liberta checked to Koppel for the third time. Koppel fired a big bet of 750,000 and Liberta went into the tank. He called after about a minute and he showed {a-Hearts}{10-Spades} which was enough to beat the {q-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds} by Koppel.
