Hands 60-63: Kempe Shoves Twice, Makes a Nice Laydown

Webjoker • Level 32: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante

Hand #60: Rainer Kempe on the button moved in for 2,460,000 from the button with {A-Clubs}{9-Hearts}. Warburton asked for a count holding {A-Spades}{5-Hearts} in the small blind, but folded in the end. Juanda had {K-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} and simply said "No" and folded as well.

Hand #61: Denys Shafikov opened under the gun with {8-Spades}{5-Diamonds} for 320,000. Rainer Kempe in the cutoff, who's cards weren't shown yet, moved all in again. Action folded around quickly and Kempe won his second hand in a row.

Hand #62: Kempe, now with 3,420,000, opened for 320,000 holding {A-Hearts}{2-Hearts} under the gun. Shafikov with {A-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} in the big blind made the call. {A-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{5-Spades} on the flop hit both players, but especially Shafikov.

Both players checked and the {K-Spades} hit the turn. Shafikov checked and Kempe bet 200,000 into the 820,000 pot. Shafikov check raised to 750,000 and Kempe eventually folded, making the right laydown.

Hand #63: Steve Warburton with the {8-Spades}{8-Clubs} made it 330,000 under the gun. Shafikov in the small blind with yet another pair, {2-Spades}{2-Clubs} this time, called. The flop came {6-Clubs}{4-Spades}{10-Hearts} and Shafikov checked. Warburton bet 370,000 and Shafikov folded.

Hand #59: Andreas Samuelsson looked down on {J-Spades}{10-Clubs} in the cutoff and moved all in for 1,210,000. The action folded to Steve Warburton who called with {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs} in the big blind.

The flop brought out {A-Spades}{K-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} and Samuelsson picked up a gut shot against Warburton's set. On the turn the {4-Hearts} hit and that didn't change a thing. On the river the {7-Spades} hit and Samuelsson exited the tournament in sixth place.

Warburton celebrated the hand with his friends on the rail, while the Swede headed for the payout desk.

Hands 54-58: Small Blind Battle Between the Big Stacks

Webjoker • Level 32: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante

Hand #54: Denys Shafikov in the cutoff with {Q-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} raised it to 320,000. John Juanda called from the big blind with {K-Hearts}{3-Hearts}. Juanda checked blind and the flop came {6-Clubs}{4-Spades}{10-Hearts}. Shafikov bet out 315,000 with his second pair and Juanda folded. "Give the man his money" Juanda quoted Rounders.

Hand #55: Juanda in the small blind woke up with {A-Hearts}{J-Hearts} and made it 350,000. "Do you got any idea how much you're playing?" Jensen asked. Jensen in the big blind had {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} and he called when he heard Juanda was playing about 8 million.

The flop came {K-Spades}{4-Hearts}{Q-Spades} and Juanda and Jensen both checked. The {3-Hearts} on the turn gave Juanda a flush draw on top of his gut shot and live outs but again both players checked. The {5-Clubs} hit the river and Juanda checked. Jensen thought about it for a bit before checking back. Juanda showed his missed ace-jack and Jensen picked it up with his nines. "I'm glad to lose a small pot there!" Juanda said with a smile and they continued to discuss the hand which could've gone different easily.

Hand #56: Juanda with {10-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} on the button raised to 320,000 and both blinds folded. Blinds and antes for Juanda.

Hand #57: Warburton with {A-Hearts}{J-Diamonds} opened and Shafikov called with {A-Spades}{2-Diamonds} from the big blind. Both players checked the {Q-Spades}{Q-Hearts}{A-Clubs} and the {8-Clubs} hit the turn and again both players checked. The {3-Hearts} hit the river and Shafikov bet 430,000 into the 850,000 pot. Warburton called instantly and picked up the chips after showing down the better kicker.

Hand #58: Juanda found another big hand, this time he had {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts} and he made it 320,000. Action folded and so again raise and take it for Juanda.

Hand #53: John Juanda raised under the gun to 320,000 with {3-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} and Amir Touma moved all in from the button for 400,000 with {Q-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}. Steve Warburton was next to act in the big blind with {A-Hearts}{10-Hearts} and he made the call, as did Juanda.

The flop brought out {6-Hearts}{2-Spades}{5-Clubs} and Juanda stayed in the lead as the action was checked. On the turn the {4-Spades} hit and Juanda hit a straight. Juanda bet 420,000 and Warburton folded. On the river the {9-Spades} hit and Touma hit the rail.

Touma managed to make one pay jump, and Andreas Samuelsson is now the tournament short stack.

Hands 50-52: Mario Sanchez Eliminated in 8th Place (€137,080)

Hand #50: John Juanda entered the pot with a raise to 320,000 from the hijack holding {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}. Action folded around quickly and Juanda took down the blinds and antes.

Hand #51: Action folded to Denys Shafikov and he found {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}. With short stack Amir Touma in the big blind, Shafikov raised it up. Touma, despite being down to just a few big blinds, folded his {7-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}.

Hand #52: Mario Sanchez with the {K-Hearts}{J-Hearts} made it 360,000 to go from middle position. Frederik Jensen right next to him picked up {A-Spades}{K-Clubs} yet again and three bet to 910,000 from the hijack. Sanchez made the call.

The flop came {4-Spades}{3-Spades}{10-Hearts} and Sanchez checked. Jensen checked behind. The {Q-Spades} on the turn brought something for both. Sanchez, with 14% equity in the hand, bet out 950,000 into the 1,310,000 pot. Jensen, with his gutshot and nut flush draw, tanked for a bit before calling.

The {9-Spades} hit the river and Sanchez made his straight while Jensen made the nut flush. Sanchez checked and Jensen announced all in. Sanchez, with 3,230,000 behind, thought about it for about 5 minutes before he called all in.

Jensen instantly showed the nuts and Sanchez left the tournament with hanging shoulders.

Amir Touma (2 big blinds) and Andreas Samuelsson (9 big binds) must have been happy picking up a slightly bigger cheque because of Sanchez' bust out. They are now guaranteed €194,100 while Mario Sanchez picked up €137,080.

Hand #45: John Juanda raised under the gun to 320,000 with {A-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} and Denys Shafikov three-bet from the cutoff to 750,000. Juanda folded within ten seconds and Shafikov raked in the pot.

On the turn the {4-Hearts} hit and Sanchez checked once more to Shafikov who checked behind. The river was the {9-Diamonds} and Sanchez reached for chips and bet 620,000, just shy of half the pot. Shafikov went into the tank for quite some time before folding his cards, and Sanchez raked in the pot.

Hand #48: Denys Shafikov looked down at {9-Spades}{9-Hearts} and he raised to 320,000 under the gun plus one and he took down the pot with his third pocket pair in a row.

Hand #49: The action folded to Frederik Jensen in the small blind and he moved all in with {A-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}. Andreas Samuelsson, with just 11 big blinds left, folded {K-}{2-} and Jensen picked up this pot.

Hand #44: Juanda found {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds} and made it 320,000 from early position. Andreas Samuelsson in the cutoff picked up {Q-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} and thought about it for a bit before three betting to 740,000.

It folded back to Juanda who, with at this time 22 big blinds behind but with short stack Touma still alive, decided to four bet to 1,480,000. Samuelsson tanked for about 3 minutes and shoved all in. Juanda called instantly.

The flop came {4-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{4-Clubs}, making Samuelsson a three to one favorite. The {9-Diamonds} on the turn meant Juanda was down to just six outs. The {A-Diamonds} on the river was one of them and Juanda doubled!
