There were just two eliminations in one hand.

Vlad Munteanu open-jammed from the hijack for 550,000 before Mark Wong three-bet jammed for 1,285,000 from the cutoff. Damien Pilkington-Lewis had them both covered and made the call from the small blind.

Vlad Munteanu: {k-Clubs}{q-Spades}
Mark Wong: {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}
Damien Pilkington-Lewis: {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}

"Yes!" shouted Pilkington-Lewis after the {j-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{j-Diamonds} came on the flop to give him a full house. Both of his opponents were drawing dead after the {8-Spades} came on the turn and he officially won the pot after the {5-Diamonds} completed the board on the river.

Callum Pooles raised to 300,000 from under the gun. Valentin Ghioca raised all in for 375,000 from middle position. Damien Pilkington-Lewis then re-raised all-in from the small blind. Pooles tanked for 30 seconds then called.

Valentin Ghioca: {8-Hearts}{8-Spades}
Damien Pilkington-Lewis: {q-Hearts}{q-Spades}
Callum Pooles: {k-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}

The board ran out {6-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} giving Ghioca the straight and a triple-up. Pilkington-Lewis won the large side pot and Pooles big lead took a bit of a dent.

Munteanu Doubles Early

lukemaskell94 • Level 28: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante

Bartas Samoska opened to 240,000 from the button. The small blind folded. Vlad Munteanu went all-in from the big blind for not much more than the original raise which was quickly called by Samoska.

Vlad Munteanu: {k-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}
Bartas Samoska: {7-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}

The flop came out {k-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} giving Samoska a flush draw, but the board bricked out {9-Spades}{10-Spades} and Munteanu doubled.
