Zalpys Elimiantes Buonincontro

Jaxon • Level 13: 1,500-2,500, 2,500 ante

Antonio Buonincontro jammed from the button for about 37,000 before Marius Zalpys rejammed for a little more from the small blind. Gary Miller folded in the big blind and players turned over their cards.

Antonio Buonincontro: {q-Hearts}{5-Hearts}
Marius Zalpys: {a-Spades}{7-Clubs}

It was looking good for Buonincontro to double after he paired the {q-Spades}{8-Spades}{7-Hearts} flop. The {j-Hearts} was a safe card for Buonincontro on the turn and even gave him a flush draw.

However, the {a-Clubs} came on the river and Buonincontro was ousted..

"Good game," said Zalpys as Buonincontro left the table.

Jaxon • Level 12: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante

Unibet Poker qualifier Dominik Znasik jammed from the cutoff for 25,000 with {j-Clubs}{10-Clubs}.

Fabian Donovan, who is sitting on one of the biggest stacks in the room, tanked for his full 30 seconds before he folded before the player in the small blind rejammed for about 70,000 with {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}. The player in the big blind folded and Znasik was at risk.

It wasn't looking good for Znasik after he failed to connect on the {4-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} flop and after the {5-Hearts} came on the turn. However, he managed to double up after the {10-Diamonds} came on the river to improve his hand to two-pair.
