Ector Defends and Then Chops

• Level 12: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante

Josua Weiss raised it up to 4,000 from the cutoff and Benjamin Ector defended from his big blind.

Ector checked the {k-Hearts}{6-Spades}{a-Clubs} flop, Weiss bet 4,000, Ector check-called and then led out on the {6-Clubs} turn for 5,000, which got a call from Weiss. Both players checked the {6-Diamonds} river and then tabled their hands to reveal the same full house.

Benjamin Ector: {a-Spades}{5-Clubs}
Joshua Weiss: {a-Hearts}{10-Spades}

Tamasauskas Takes One Out

• Level 11: 800-1,600, 1,600 ante

A short-stacked player looked at one card and then moved all in and [Removed:174] made the call. The short-stacked player tried to reveal only the ace to keep things interesting but was told that both cards had to be tabled in an all-in situation.

All-in Player: {a-Clubs}{5-Hearts}
[Removed:174]: {a-Spades}{9-Clubs}

The board ran out {j-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{3-Spades}, which gave Tamasauskas two pair and sent his opponent to the rail.
