Hand #344: Roman Korenev limped and Jared Koppel checked. The flop was {k-Clubs}{5-Spades}{3-Clubs} and Korenev bet 300,000, called by Koppel. The {10-Clubs} turn brought a third club and Koppel checked. Korenev settled on a bet of 500,000 and Koppel peeled one more street.

The {j-Clubs} river was the fourth club and both players rapidly checked. No one had a club in their hand, but Koppel's {k-Spades}{4-Hearts} was still ahead of the {7-Spades}{7-Hearts} of Korenev.

Hand #345: Action opened with a raise from Koppel to 750,000 and a call from Korenev. The {9-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{8-Spades} flop got checked both ways. On the {7-Clubs} turn Korenev bet 1,100,000 and got a fold.

Hand #346: In a limped pot, the {4-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{k-Spades} board was checked down to the river where Koppel bet 350,000. Korenev folded.

Hand #347: It was Koppel with a raise to 625,000 this time and Korenev called. The flop came down {k-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{q-Clubs} and once again, no flop action. Korenev bet a million straight on the {9-Hearts} turn and Koppel called.

The {2-Hearts} river completed a possible backdoor hearts and Korenev went for 1,600,000. Koppel called but Korenev had him crushed with the {q-Spades}{4-Spades} to inch to nearly equal stacks.

Hand #348: Korenev limped and Koppel checked. Flop {j-Clubs}{5-Spades}{4-Spades} went check/check as well. Turn {3-Spades} brought 600,000 from Koppel and a call from Korenev. Koppel slowed down on the {5-Clubs} river and checked, Korenev checked behind.

Koppel showed a counterfeited {4-Clubs}{3-Hearts} and was second best to Korenev's {9-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}, who took the lead after the hand.
