Kush Vinod Kataria and Johan Guilbert

Stefan Fabian three-bet jammed out of the big blind for just shy of ten blinds and was called by Jim Sue Pan in the cutoff.

Stefan Fabian: {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}
Jim Sue Pan: {j-Clubs}{9-Clubs}

The board came {5-Spades}{2-Clubs}{2-Spades}{k-Clubs}{k-Spades} and Fabian doubled in the last hand on the table. But there was also another all-in and call on the third table, in which Viktor Ustimov four-bet jammed into John Guilbert and was snap-called.

Johan Guilbert: {q-Hearts}{q-Spades}
Viktor Ustimov: {6-Spades}{6-Hearts}

The dominated pair found no equity on the {a-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{8-Spades}{4-Clubs} and Guilbert doubled for 3.71 million.

Er Stays Alive

zedmaster84 • Level 27: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante

Zorlu Er was at risk with a short stack and the {k-Hearts}{9-Clubs}. Viktor Ustimov looked him up with the {5-Spades}{3-Clubs} and hit a pair on the {a-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{3-Spades} flop. The {8-Diamonds} turn bricked but the {9-Hearts} river saved Er for the time being.

Old School Meets New School

zedmaster84 • Level 27: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante

Artur Martirosian defended the big blind against Ionel Anton and checked the {k-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} flop. Anton jammed for 1.6 million and that sent Martirosian in the tank.

"Are you a professional?" Anton asked and his opponent replied "Yes of course. Don't you know who I am?"

Anton continued "is that only your opinion or everybody else's also?" Martirosian tanked for another minute and then folded the {k-Spades} face up, Anton grinned and flashed the {10-Clubs}. Needless to say that the entire table broke out in laughter.

zedmaster84 • Level 27: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante

Johan Guilbert limped the small blind and Saman Nakhjavani checked his option to see the {6-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{2-Hearts} flop for free. The Frenchman led for 200,000 and called the shove by Nakhjavani,

Saman Nakhjavani: {7-Spades}{6-Clubs}
Johan Guilbert: {j-Hearts}{j-Spades}

The trap of Guilbert had worked but Nakhjavani got there on the {9-Spades} turn and {8-Spades} river to double for 1,905,000.
