The action was opened from early position with a raise and both Vladimir Troyanovskiy, on the button, and Neymar Jr. in the small blind called. All three players checked on the {a-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{7-Hearts} flop and again on the {7-Spades} turn.

The river fell the {k-Diamonds}, and after Neymar Jr. and the initial raiser checked, Tryoanovskiy contemplated his next move but ultimately decided to check.

Neymar Jr. revealed {9-Spades}{10-Spades} for two pair and took the pot after both his opponents mucked. The Brazilian is currently sitting on just below starting stack with 27,000.

The completed board was down on Andre Akkari's table, and it read {2-Spades}{a-Spades}{3-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}. Akkari was in middle position and heads-up against an opponent in the big blind.

Akkari's friend and compatriot Neymar walked over to his table to watch over the action and saw Akkari's opponent move all in for 17,000. The Brazilian wasted no time in making the call and revealed {8-Spades}{5-Spades} for the straight after his opponent could only muster {3-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} for two pair.

Akkari pulled the pot towards him and shared a smile with Neymar before he stacked his new 70,000 chip stack.
