Sergi Reixach was on the right side of a cooler earlier in the day in order to double up, but this time the tides turned and he found himself on the wrong side of it. Chris Moneymaker raised to 150,000 in the hijack and was called by Sergio Aido on the button and Reixach in the big blind.

The flop fell {q-Spades}{8-Spades}{3-Clubs} and Reixach checked to Moneymaker who continued with a bet of 325,000. Aido folded and Reixach check-raised to 900,000. Moneymaker called and the {7-Spades} landed on the turn. Reixach led out for 850,000 and Moneymaker announced all in. Reixach called off his stack of around 2,500,000 and found out the bad news.

Moneymaker flipped over {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs} for a set of queens and Reixach was drawing to just one out with {3-Spades}{3-Diamonds} for a set of threes. The river was the {9-Clubs} and Reixach was eliminated in 13th place.

ajlamers • Level 29: 35,000-70,000, 70,000 ante

A board of {a-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} was spread across the felt and Freddy Deeb checked from the big blind. Frank Stepuchin tossed in a bet of 240,000 on the button and Deeb called.

The river was the {7-Clubs} and Deeb slid out a bet of 800,000. Stepuchin sent his cards to the muck and Deeb flashed {6-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} to show his six-high bluff.

Mustafov Down, But Not Out

ajlamers • Level 29: 35,000-70,000, 70,000 ante

Frank Stepuchin opened to 150,000 from the cutoff and Freddy Deeb shipped all in for 2,285,000 in the small blind. Fahredin Mustafov asked for a count and then re-shoved all in from the big blind which got Stepuchin to fold.

Deeb turned over {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts} and was dominating Mustafov's {a-Spades}{q-Clubs}. The flop came {k-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} to give both players a pair, Deeb with the larger one. The {4-Diamonds} and {7-Diamonds} runout didn't help Mustafov as he sent a double up to Deeb.

Down to just 795,000 chips, Mustafov moved all in from the small blind when the action was folded to him in the next hand. Tom Marchese quickly called from the big blind and the cards were on their backs.

Mustafov was the one in a dominating position this time with {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs} against Marchese's {a-Spades}{4-Spades}. The flop of {j-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} gave Mustafov a commanding lead and the {6-Hearts} on the turn locked up the pot for him as he doubled up the very next hand.
