Fitoussi's Stack Growing

Bruno Fitoussi popped it up to 5,000 before the flop and Douglas Corning called from the cutoff. The rest of the table folded and the flop came {2-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}. Two checks brought the {J-Clubs} on the turn and Fitoussi checked once again. Corning bet out 8,000 and Fitoussi called.

The river was the {6-Spades} and Fitoussi checked. Corning fired 17,000 and Fitoussi mulled over a decision for well over a minute before dropping in enough chips to call. He showed {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{J-Diamonds} for a set of nines and Corning mucked his hand, awarding Fitoussi the pot.

Trouble For Selbst

[user20283]

On the first hand of hand-for-hand play it was Vanessa Selbst who just lost an important pot. The board read {9-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{K-Clubs}{9-Spades}{7-Spades} when Michael Schwartz bet 9,500. Selbst raised it up to 35,000 and Schwartz called.

Schwartz showed {10-Clubs}{10-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} and took down the pot. Selbst complimented Schwartz on his call and she's now one of the shortest remaining stacks.

We are on the money bubble after [Removed:163] just lost all his chips to Jussi Ryynanen. Ryynanen raised it up to 5,100 after which Sheikh re-raised to 18,300 from the button. Michael Mizrachi called from the small blind, and Ryynanen announced a pot-sized re-raise.

The total raise was to 75,200 and Sheikh called all in for a total of 31,000. Mizrachi did some serious math, but eventually he decided to fold.

Showdown:
Jussi Ryynanen: {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}{8-Spades}{2-Spades}
[Removed:163]: {K-Clubs}{K-Spades}{Q-Spades}{J-Clubs}

The board ran out {A-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{6-Spades}{4-Hearts}{9-Hearts} and Sheikh was knocked out. Mizrachi claimed to have folded the eventual winning hand, but the chips went to Ryynanen. Hand for hand play is underway!

Mizrachi vs. Ryynanen Part III

After watching Vanessa Selbst double up Ville Mattila at one table, we found Michael Mizrachi and Jussi Ryynanen locked in yet another battle at the next table over.

The board read {10-Clubs}{J-Spades}{8-Spades}{3-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} and Ryynanen checked. Mizrachi moved a bet of 45,000 into the middle and Ryynanen was left thinking for a while.

Eventually, a smile washed over Mizrachi's face.

"Listen," Mizrachi said. "If you fold I'll show you a bluff. If you call...I'll probably show you the best hand."

This statement caused Ryynanen to peek at his hole cards once again before he began counting out chips.

"There we go," said Mizrachi.

Ryynanen tossed in a called and Mizrachi tabled {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} for a queen-high straight. Ryynanen showed {9-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} for a smaller straight and was forced to muck his hand after muttering a few choice words.

After winning this pot Mizrachi is flirting with 200,000 in chips.

Mattila Catches Spade to Double Through Selbst

On a flop of {9-Spades}{7-Spades}{5-Hearts}, Ville Mattila moved out two stacks of purple t500 chips for a bet totaling 20,000. Jussi Nevanlinna got out of the way and Vanessa Selbst announced that she was all in from the button. Mattila called for his tournament life and the hands were shown:

Selbst: {J-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}
Mattila: {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{10-Spades}{9-Diamonds}

Mattila was looking for a spade to best Selbst's flopped straight and found exactly that when the {5-Spades} fell on the turn. The {3-Clubs} completed the board and Selbst was forced to ship over 33,500 in chips to Mattila. She is currently sitting on about 120,000 in chips.
