The flop came {9-Spades}{4-Spades}{2-Hearts} and Mathis checked to Moneymaker who continued for 250,000. Mathis thought for a moment and ripped all in for 1,620,000. Moneymaker quickly called and the cards were tabled.

Chris Moneymaker: {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}
Martin Mathis: {10-Spades}{7-Spades}

Moneymaker held an overpair and Mathis was looking to catch one more spade. The turn was the {4-Hearts} and the river brought the {9-Hearts}, sending Mathis home in 11th place.

Aido Makes a Wheel to Double Up

ajlamers • Level 31: 50,000-100,000, 100,000 ante

The action folded to Sergio Aido on the button who shipped all in for 1,670,000. Jeremy Ausmus asked for a count from the small blind and then re-shoved all in. Rainer Kempe folded his big blind and the two hands were tabled.

Sergio Aido: {a-Hearts}{9-Spades}
Jeremy Ausmus: {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}

The flop came {5-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{3-Clubs} to give Aido a straight draw to go with his one overcard. The {10-Diamonds} on the turn was of no help but the {2-Spades} on the river gave him a straight to double up.

Another Bluff from Deeb

ajlamers • Level 30: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante

Freddy Deeb raised it up from the cutoff and Frank Stepuchin called from the big blind. The flop came {7-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} and both players checked to the {9-Hearts} on the turn.

Stepuchin checked again and Deeb fired out a bet of 300,000 into a pot of around 550,000. Stepuchin called and the {q-Hearts} landed on the river. Stepuchin checked for the third time and Deeb put together a bet of 420,000.

"You gonna show me a bluff again?" Stepuchin asked as he threw his cards to the muck.

"Maybe," Deeb replied as he casually turned over {5-Hearts}{2-Hearts}. "Maybe."

Deeb Shoves on Beresford; Duthweiler Shoves on Deeb

will_shill • Level 30: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante

Freddy Deeb opened to 160,000 and called a three-bet from Conor Beresford to 450,000. Deeb checked the {6-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} flop and Beresford continued for 300,000.

Deeb check-raised to 1,400,000 and Beresford called. The turn {3-Spades} prompted Deeb to shove all in and Beresford shook his head before flinging his cards into the muck.

A short while later Tobias Duthweiler raised to 250,000 from the small blind and Deeb called in the big blind. Duthweiler continued for 575,000 on the eyebrow-raising {2-Spades}{2-Hearts}{2-Clubs} with Deeb calling. Duthweiler shoved the {10-Diamonds} turn for 1,730,000 and Deeb folded.

Huge Swing for Marchese

ajlamers • Level 30: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante

Tom Marchese raised to 175,000 on the button and Frank Stepuchin defended from the big blind. The flop came {8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{4-Clubs} and Stepuchin checked to Marchese who continued for 250,000. Stepuchin called and the {4-Diamonds} paired the board on the turn.

Stepuchin checked again and Marchese fired out another 575,000. Stepuchin check-raised to 1,500,000 and Marchese stuck around to see the {10-Hearts} on the river. Stepuchin, standing from his chair, slid out a bet of 2,000,000. Marchese announced all in for 3,050,000 and Stepuchin flicked in a call.

Marchese rolled over {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} for a full house and Stepuchin was forced to table his {3-Clubs}{2-Clubs}. Marchese scored a massive double up to put a dent in Stepuchin's stack and take over the chip lead.
