"It's OK, You're Rich"

• Level 15: 20,000-40,000, 40,000 ante

Daniel Negreanu was all in on the button for 580,000 and Jason Koon made the call from the big blind. Prior to the cards being tabled, Koon said he wasn't feeling confident about the hand.

Daniel Negreanu: {5-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}
Jason Koon: {a-Spades}{7-Diamonds}

Negreanu took out his phone and started recording the hand. "So far so good," he said as the flop fell {k-Spades}{9-Hearts}{8-Clubs}. The {q-Hearts} hit the turn and the {8-Diamonds} on the river to secure the double up for Negreanu.

"Sorry, Jason," Negreanu continued. "It's OK, you're rich."

The flop was {9-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{7-Hearts} putting a straight on the board and with 500,000 in the middle already, Byron Kaverman bet a cool 1,100,000.

His opponent was James Chen who used a time extension before raising to 2,600,000.

Now it was Kaverman's turn to tank, use a time extension and then call. Chen held {q-Spades}{q-Diamonds} for a queen-high straight and Kaverman mucked.

• Level 15: 20,000-40,000, 40,000 ante

Martin Kabrhel pushed out a raise of around 150,000, leaving himself one chip behind. Ali Imsirovic three-bet to 300,000 and Keith Tilston four-bet to 1,000,000. The action folded back to Kabrhel who stuck his last chip in the middle and Imsirovic folded.

Keith Tilston: {a-Spades}{q-Hearts}
Martin Kabrhel: {a-Hearts}{7-Clubs}

The flop fell {8-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} to give Kabrhel a straight draw along with his one live card. The {9-Spades} and {3-Hearts} runout would brick off though and Kabrhel headed for the rail.

Igor Kurganov opened to 70,000 on the button and Nick Petrangelo defended his big blind. The pair checked the {5-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{10-Hearts} flop and the turn was the {4-Diamonds}. Petrangelo bet 160,000 and Kurganov called.

The river was the {q-Clubs}. Petrangelo bet 440,000 leaving himself 20,000 behind. Kurganov moved all in and Petrangelo called.

Petrangelo showed {q-}{7-} for a rivered pair of queens and a blocker to the straight, but Kurganov held {7-Spades}{8-Spades} and had turned a straight which sent the 2018 $100,000 High Roller champion to the rail.

Reixach Doubles Through Wang, Kempe Finishes Him Off

• Level 14: 15,000-30,000, 30,000 ante

Sergi Reixach and Yong Wang got all of their chips in the middle preflop and it was Reixach who was at risk for around 700,000. The cards were tabled and Reixach was happy to be flipping.

Sergi Reixach: {2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}
Yong Wang: {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}

The flop came {10-Spades}{6-Hearts}{6-Clubs} and Wang picked up some counterfeit outs with a paired board.

Wang was left with around five big blinds and Kempe eliminated him in the very next hand.
