Hand #67: Chance Kornuth raised to 250,000 on the button and Sam Soverel three-bet to 1,000,000 from the small blind. Kornuth gave it some thought but folded before his time was up.

Hand #68: Sam Soverel opened to 265,000 on the button and Elio Fox called from the small blind. The two players saw a flop of {7-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{3-Hearts} and Fox started with a check. Soverel continued for 300,000 and Fox instantly folded.

Hand #69: The action folded to Dmitry Yurasov in the small blind who just limped in. Andrew Lichtenberger raised to 325,000 in the big blind and Yurasov called. The flop came {10-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{3-Hearts} and Yurasov checked to Lichtenberger who continued for 150,000. Yurasov check-raised to 400,000 and Lichtenberger called.

The turn brought the {a-Hearts} and both players checked to the {j-Clubs} on the river. Yurasov made a small bet of 250,000 and Lichtenberger used a time extension before pushing in a raise to 1,750,000, leaving only 200,000 behind. Yurasov dipped deep into the tank, using up four of his time extensions before making the call. Lichtenberger turned over {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts} for a king-high flush and Yurasov mucked his cards.
