Becker Makes the Bigger Flush

• Level 14: 1,000-2,500, 2,500 ante

Dieter Becker open-shipped all in for 37,000 in early position and [Removed:321] Omari re-shoved all in for 126,000 in the cutoff. Elad Teva was in the small blind and went into the tank for nearly two minutes before finally letting his hand go.

Dieter Becker: {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs}
[Removed:321] Omari: {a-Spades}{q-Clubs}

Becker was in a dominating position and the flop of {10-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{7-Clubs} gave him the better flush draw as well. The {2-Spades} on the turn changed nothing and the {6-Clubs} on the river gave Becker the better flush to double up.

Sinisi Quadraples

Ernestok • Level 13: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante

Nicola Sinisi was left with 13,500 chips and he put them in the middle from early position. Three players called the shove, Karim Frick from middle position, Mateusz Zerko from the cutoff and Kevin Paschmann from the button.

The flop came {q-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} and all three players checked.

The turn was the {4-Clubs} and Frick bet 17,000 with only Paschmann calling.

The river was the {4-Hearts} and this time they both checked.

Sinisi opened {3-Spades}{3-Hearts} for a full house which was good, since Frick had {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs} for a flush and Paschmann {a-Spades}{k-Clubs} with just ace high.

Shkapenko Sends Bruggen to the Rail

• Level 13: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante

Britt Petersen opened to 5,000 in middle position and Thomas Bruggen shoved all in for 35,800 on her left. Oleh Shkapenko was next to act and just called. The action folded back to Petersen who laid her hand down as well.

Oleh Shkapenko: {k-Spades}{k-Hearts}
Thomas Bruggen: {8-Hearts}{8-Clubs}

The flop came {a-Clubs}{q-Spades}{9-Diamonds} and Shkapenko was still in a commanding lead with his pocket kings. The {4-Spades} on the turn nor the {9-Spades} on the river would be of any help to Bruggen who was eliminated.
