Soika Soars

• Level 35: 150,000-300,000, 50,000 ante

Action folded around to Salvatore DiCarlo in the cutoff and he raised to 700,000. Ihar Soika called on the button and Stoyan Obreshkov three-bet to 2,850,000 from the big blind. DiCarlo folded and action was back on Obreshkov.

Obreshkov went into the tank for a solid five minutes before Brian Yoon called the clock. Tournament director Bob Smith walked over to confirm a sufficient amount of time had passed and the dealer acknowledged that it had. Smith explained that Soika had 30 seconds before he would begin a 10-second countdown. If there was no action by the time he said "zero," the hand would be dead. "Zero!" yelled Will Failla. The entire table laughed and Obreshkov proceeded to call.

The flop came {q-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} and Obreshkov paused for about a minute before checking. Soika went into the tank and eventually moved all in. Obreshkov folded.

Will Failla raised to 700,000 from the cutoff and Richard Ma reraised to 1,750,000 in the big blind. Failla called and the flop came {10-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{3-Spades}. Ma led out for 1,275,000 and Failla called.

The turn brought the {j-Clubs} and Ma checked this time. Failla went all in for 4,600,000, putting Ma at risk should he call. "Ace-king is no good," Failla said to Ma, as he got his opponent to throw his cards away. Failla scooped the pot.

Will Failla triples up

Will Failla was all in from the cutoff for his last 1,325,000. Salvatore DiCarlo called on the button, and Pfizer Jordan moved all in from the big blind. DiCarlo folded.

Failla was well behind with {q-Hearts}{j-Clubs}, up against Jordan's {a-Clubs}{j-Spades}. He already declared he was going to triple up this hand, and even said a prayer while DiCarlo was left to act.

The flop came {10-Spades}{8-Hearts}{4-Hearts} and Failla picked up some outs to make a straight in addition to the remaining queens in the deck.

The turn was the {9-Diamonds} and Failla made his straight. He cheered as the {2-Diamonds} hit the river and scooped up the pot.
