Hand #93: Chance Kornuth and Alex Epstein both limped, with Anson Tsang checked his button. The flop was {10-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{8-Clubs} and the three all checked. The turn was the {8-Diamonds} and again all three checked.

The river was the {6-Clubs} and Kornuth decided enough was enough and put some chips in the middle, betting 40,000. Epstein called and Tsang folded. Epstein showed {7-Hearts}{9-Hearts} for a straight and took down the pot.

Hand #94: Kornuth raised to 120,000 and won the pot.

Hand #95 Rene van Krevelen moved all in for 833,000. It folded to Thai Ha in the cutoff who moved all in for 753,000.

Thai Ha: {j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}
Rene van Krevelen: {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs}

The flop was {9-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{7-Clubs} with Ha still ahead. The turn was the {8-Diamonds} meaning Van Krevelen would need an ace or a king if he was to avoid being left with less than 100,000 in chips. The river was the {9-Spades} and Ha doubled up.
