Hand #97: Dmitry Yurasov raised to 300,000 in the cutoff and the rest of the table folded.

Hand #98: Andrew Lichtenberger raised to 260,000 in the cutoff and Ben Heath flat-called on the button. Yurasov also came along from the big blind and the three players saw a flop of {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}{7-Hearts}. The action checked to Heath who tossed in a bet of 280,000 and Yurasov was the only one to stick around for the {7-Diamonds} on the turn.

Both players checked and the {9-Diamonds} completed the board. Yurasov counted out a bet of 1,350,000 and Heath raised to 3,120,000. Yurasov called and Heath turned over {a-Hearts}{8-Spades} only to chop the pot with {a-Clubs}{4-Clubs} from Yurasov.

Hand #99: Heath opened to 270,000 in the cutoff and Sam Soverel re-raised to 800,000 on the button. The blinds folded and Heath gave it some thought but decided to fold as well.

Hand #100: Yurasov made it 300,000 on the button and Lichtenberger called from the small blind. Heath raised to 1,500,000 in the big blind which got snap-folds from Yurasov and Lichtenberger.
