Kolonias Runs Pure Against Grax

MartianNews • Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Action folded around to Sebastien Grax, he moved all in for 236,363 from the cutoff and Alex Kolonias called in the big blind.

Sebastien Grax: {a-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}
Alex Kolonias: {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}

The flop spread out {k-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}, leaving Grax in the lead with his higher kicker. A {9-Spades} left Kolonias with my last chance for romance and the river brought him the love when a {10-Spades} landed, giving him a pair of dimes to send Grax out the door.

Nemeth Finds a River vs. Smith

MartianNews • Level 21: 7,000-14,000, 1,750 ante

Dan Smith opened to 29,400 from under the gun, Andras Nemeth called in the big blind and the {j-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{4-Spades} flop hit the virtual felt. Action checked to Smith, he bet 15,400 and Nemeth check-raised to 58,800.

Smith called and the {8-Diamonds} peeled off on the turn. Nemeth checked again to Smith who bet 56,000 and Nemeth then check-raised all in for a total of 204,048. Smith snap-called, tabling {j-Spades}{10-Spades} for top pair with a straight draw.

Nemeth turned over {a-Clubs}{9-Hearts} for just a pair of nines and was in rough shape until the {9-Spades} landed on the river, giving him three nines to take down the pot for an unlikely double through Smith.
