After some thinking, Steve Chanthabouasy pushed his last 5,000 chips in the middle and Brock Parker raised it to 8,000 on the button. The blinds folded and the players tabled their cards:

Steve Chanthabouasy: {9-Clubs}{9-Hearts}
Brock Parker: {10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}

Chanthabouasy needed to hit on the board but found no help on the {10-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}, improving Parker's hand into a set of tens and busting Chanthabouasy on the bubble while the rest of the players cheered from joy.

Lucky River for Rygol

• Level 15: 3,000-6,000, 0 ante

Daniel Negreanu raised in the cutoff and after some tank, Bernard Rygol decided to call all in for his last 4,500 chips to create the following showdown:

Bernard Rygol: {10-Spades}{4-Clubs}
Daniel Negreanu: {q-Clubs}{j-Hearts}

Rygol was in bad shape for a double up at the bubble, and the board first fell {9-Spades}{4-Spades}{5-Clubs}{3-Spades}, but a {q-Spades} showed up on the river, giving a pair of queens to Negreanu and the flush to Rygol who took down the pot.
