Cimbolas Chips Up

zedmaster84 • Level 21: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

First Matas Cimbolas was involved in a hand with Jesus Gracia when he made a continuation bet of 49,000 on the {Q-Clubs} {J-Clubs} {3-Hearts} flop. Gracia min-raised to 98,000 and then folded to a reraise of the Lithuanian, worth 257,000.

The next bigger hand saw him battle Christopher Yong and check-call a second barrel worth 145,000 on the {3-Spades} {3-Diamonds} {A-Spades} {2-Diamonds}. Yong then checked behind the {K-Hearts} river and Cimbolas showed the winning {A-Hearts} {J-Spades}. "Give me my chips. Who is next?" the eloquent Lithuanian said.

Jeraint "JJ" Hazan is also up early in level 21.

Kevin Allen raised to 40,000 and James Manlove moved all in for his last 41,000 chips in the cutoff. Everyone else folded and Alen tossed in the extra chip to head into a showdown.

Allen: {A-Hearts} {4-Diamonds}
Manlove: {K-Clubs} {K-Hearts}

"Oh, look at this," Manlove said when he spotted the {A-Clubs} {4-Clubs} {10-Hearts} flop. The Brit wouldn't improve anymore on {Q-Hearts} turn and {7-Clubs} river.
