No Three-Outer for Hafauri

KaleGozer • Level 25: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante

Abelardo Hafauri moved in for a little under 800,000 from middle position. Everyone folded to Shahar Levi in the big blind who snap-called the shove.

Abelardo Hafauri: {a-Hearts}{6-Hearts}
Shahar Levi: {q-Diamonds}{q-Spades}

Hafauri begged for the three-outer to come but the aces didn't appear on a {k-Clubs}{3-Spades}{3-Hearts}{4-Spades}{2-Diamonds} board to end his bracelet attempt. David Mackenzie busted the Mini Main shortly after as well.

Poizner Out in Two Hands

KaleGozer • Level 25: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante

In the first of two hands, Alexander Poizner and Gerardo Giammugnani had built a pot of about a million already when the board was reading {5-Hearts}{4-Spades}{3-Hearts}{8-Spades}{8-Hearts}. Poizner fired a shell worth 570,000 and Giammugani called him off after quite some thought with {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs}. Poizner had {k-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} for an airball and was left with 625,000.

A few hands later, Poizner shipped his remaining stack in from under the gun and got a call once seat over from Andrii Vakaliuk.

Alexander Poizner: {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}
Andrii Vakaliuk: {7-Clubs}{7-Hearts}

Poizner lost the race on a {q-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{2-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{2-Spades} board and was gone in 32nd place.

Fulvio Sansanelli shoved from the hijack for around 750,000 and was called by Leonid Yanovski in the big blind who flipped over his cards but looked away during the runout.

Fulvio Sansanelli: {k-Hearts}{10-Hearts}
Leonid Yanovski: {a-Hearts}{9-Clubs}

The board ran out {a-Spades}{7-Spades}{q-Spades}{8-Clubs}{3-Hearts} for Yanovski to flop top pair but Sansanelli picked up the gutshot to a Broadway too. The rest of the board didn't bring the hack Sansanelli needed as he was sent to the rail.

Bohdanov Meets Resistance, Rivas Keeps Climbing

KaleGozer • Level 24: 30,000-60,000, 60,000 ante

2019 WSOPE Event #1 winner Renat Bohdanov has been on a rampage here as well but just met some resistance from Gerardo Giammugnani.

With already a sizable pot brewing between the two, Giammugnani checked from the big blind to Bohdanov, who bet 425,000 on the button. Giammugnani check-raised all in for 1,555,000 and Bohdanov folded after thirty seconds.

One table over, Vasile Sabou was all in and at risk holding {a-Spades}{j-Clubs} against the {9-Clubs}{9-Spades} of Jose Rivas, who had him covered by a wide margin. The {k-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} board didn't gave Sabou the needed help and Rivas loudly celebrated the win. Thai Ha and Bogdan Munteanu also busted.
