Two Double Ups for Ulrich

• Level 30: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante
Sebastian Ulrich
Sebastian Ulrich

Sebastian Ulrich shoved all in for 855,000 with {a-Clubs}{8-Clubs} in the hijack and Raul Villarroel quickly called with {j-Spades}{j-Hearts} on the button. The blinds folded and the two hands were tabled.

The flop came {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}{3-Clubs} to give Ulrich the best hand. The {6-Clubs} on the turn narrowed Villarroel's outs and the {q-Clubs} on the river gave Ulrich a flush to double up.

In the next hand, Henrik Brockmann raised to 275,000 in early position with {a-Spades}{a-Clubs} and Ulrich shipped all in for 2,010,000 directly on his left. The action came back to Brockmann who snap-called.

The flop fell {k-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{7-Clubs} to give Ulrich a straight draw and the {10-Diamonds} on the turn completed the straight for Ulrich. Brockmann still held a flush draw but the {10-Spades} on the river bricked off. Ulrich came from behind for the second time in a row to double his stack.

The flop came {k-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{5-Spades} to give Ulrich a straight draw and a backdoor flush draw. The {7-Clubs} on the turn eliminated some of his outs and the {10-Clubs} on the river secured the double up for Szunyoghy.

Raises and Folds

• Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 100,000 ante

Amar Begovic raised to 230,000 from early position with {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs} and Timur Margolin three-bet to 600,000 from the small blind with {a-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}. The action was back on Begovic who decided to find another spot and let his hand go.

The action has been pretty tame since the field was dwindled down to the final eight players. There have been a lot of raises from the big stacks and a lot of folding from the small stacks.
