Webjoker • Level 22: 100,000-200,000, 200,000 ante

Hand #123: Andrew Lichtenberger made it 700,000 from the small blind. Ben Heath called from the big blind to see a flop in position. On {2-Spades}{5-Clubs}{6-Spades}, Lichtenberger and Heath both checked. The {9-Hearts} on the turn saw them both check again and the {3-Spades} on the river was seen for free and they checked again. Lichtenberger showed {k-Spades}{8-Clubs} but that was no good as Heath took it down with the slightly better {k-Diamonds}{j-Spades}.

Hand #124: Andrew Lichtenberger raised to 475,000 from the button. Heath folded but Sam Soverel called from the big blind. On {5-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{9-Hearts}, they both checked. The {5-Clubs} on the turn paired the board and Soverel bet 1,350,000. Lichtenberger called.

The {9-Diamonds} completed the board and Soverel took his time before he bet 800,000 into 3.95 million. Lichtenberger needed some time too but eventually called. Soverel showed {8-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} for not much of anything, Lichtenberger took it down with {k-Hearts}{2-Hearts} for a slightly better nothing-hand.

Hand #125: Lichtenberger was first to act and opened for 450,000. Ben Heath right next to him three-bet to 1,580,000 and saw all other players fold. Pot to Heath.

Hand #126: Dmitry Yurasov limped in from the small blind and Lichtenberger checked his option in the big blind. On {8-Spades}{5-Clubs}{2-Clubs}, Yurasov checked. Lichtenberger bet 250,000 and Yurasov folded.

Hand #127: Lichtenberger made it 700,000 from the small blind. Heath called in the big and the two saw a flop of {7-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}. Lichtenberger checked and so did Heath. The {8-Clubs} on the turn had Lichtenberger bet 450,000. Heath called.

The 2.5 million in the middle was about to get bigger with the {5-Spades} on the river. Lichtenberger bet 1,350,000 and Heath called. Lichtenberger showed {2-Hearts}{3-Hearts} for the missed flush draw and Heath took it down with {a-Hearts}{j-Hearts} for the better missed flushdraw that made a straight on the river.
