Anton Morgenstern

Liran Twito raised to 600,000 from the early position and Anton Morgenstern shoved from the button for 5,315,000. Action folded back to Twito who snap-called.

Anton Morgenstern: {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}
Liran Twito: {j-Spades}{j-Hearts}

The flop came {10-Hearts}{a-Hearts}{k-Hearts} for Morgenstern to flop top two pair but it also gave Twito the gutshot to the straight and a flush draw.

The turn was the {9-Hearts} to give Twito the flush indeed. Morgenstern needed another ace or king to stay alive but the {2-Clubs} was dealt on the river for Morgenstern to be eliminated in eighth place for $75,355 after almost 2.5 hours of eight-handed play.

Yaiche Doubles Through Geilich

Liran Twito raised to 600,000 from the hijack and Basil Yaiche shoved from the cutoff. Ludovic Geilich asked for a count from the button and the dealer confirmed Yaiche had 3,190,000 behind. Geilich made the call. Daniel Braude quickly folded his small blind but Anton Morgenstern looked to have a lot more difficulty in making a decision from the big blind. After about two minutes, Morgenstern reluctantly folded as did Twito.

Basil Yaiche: {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}
Ludovic Geilich: {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}

The flop came {2-Spades}{3-Spades}{6-Spades} and Morgenstern held his head in his hands.

The turn was the {q-Hearts} while the rest of the table wondered what Morgenstern had.

The river completed the board with the {8-Spades} for Yaiche to river a set of eights to stay alive.

"I had ace-king of spades'" Morgenstern said.

Then, Twito raised to 500,000 from the early position and now Andreas Christoforou shoved from the big blind for 4,790,000 and Twito folded.

Now, Twito raised to 500,000 from under the gun and Kristen Bicknell called in the big blind. The flop came {2-Spades}{k-Clubs}{5-Spades}, Bicknell check-called the 525,000 continuation-bet of Twito. They both checked through the {7-Hearts} on the turn to the {9-Hearts} on the river. Bicknell now bet 1,700,000 and Twito called and mucked when he saw she held {k-Spades}{q-Diamonds} for the flopped top pair.
