Ran Away

[user76023] • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Ran Azor tried to go for a cheap limp on the button, but he reckoned without Victor Paraschiv who moved all in for circa 700,000 from the big blind when the action was passed around to him. Azor instantly folded.

Rettenmaier Gets Two Streets


Marvin Rettenmaier made it 105,000 from the cutoff and Joseph El Khoury defended his big blind to see an {A-Clubs}{2-Spades}{J-Spades} board which both players checked.

The {6-Spades} on the turn was also checked by El Khoury but the German showed no such caution, he slid out a bet of 90,000 and El Khoury made the call to see the {5-Diamonds} river.

El Khoury checked a third time and Rettenmaier made a bet of 135,000 and was again called. Rettenmaier showed {A-Spades}{3-Clubs} and El Khoury mucked, the German's pot-controlling flop check gaining him two streets of value.

Azor Dodges Bullets

YorkshirePud • Level 26: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Marvin Rettenmaier just congratulated Ran Azor on avoiding a big hand and now Azor has just dodged the bullets of Kiryl Radzivonau.

Azor opened to 125,000 from under the gun and Radzivonau three-bet all-in for 775,000 in total. Azor went into the tank for close to 90-seconds before letting his hand go. A very disappointed Radzivonau then showed Azor a pair of aces, much to Azor's delight.

Azor Makes A Solid Fold

YorkshirePud • Level 26: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Marvin Rettenmaier opened to 85,000 and after Artur Voskanyan got out way Ran Azor made the call.

The duo shared a {k-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{4-Hearts} flop, a flop that both players decided to check. The turn saw some betting though, Rettenmaier leading out for 85,000 upon the arrival of the {3-Clubs}. Azor snap-called.

The river card was the {k-Spades} and Rettenmaier fired another barrel, setting the price to play at 235,000. Azor turned around in his chair then turned back to face Rettenmaier and then folding his hand.

Rettenmaier tapped the table and said, "Nice fold," before mucking his own holding.

El Khoury Doubles Up

Joseph El Khoury

After a flop of {Q-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{3-Clubs} had been checked through, Joseph El Khoury checked the {10-Hearts} turn against Kiryl Radzivonau and the latter bet 85,000. El Khoury check-raised all in and Radzivonau made the call.

El Khoury: {Q-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}
Radzivonau: {J-Diamonds}{J-Spades}

The river was the {7-Clubs} and El Khoury jumped into the middle of the pack while Radzivonau has lost over a million chips since we started this final table.

Kiryl Gets Ran Out of Town

[user76023] • Level 26: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Kiryl Radzivonau raised to 80,000 preflop from the cutoff, Marvin Rettenmaier made the call on the button and the action passed to chip leader Ran Azor who put out a three-bet to 240,000.

Radzivonau, unperturbed, announced a reraise to 440,000, sliding out the first four-bet of the final table. Rettenmaier did not fold instantly but instead took several minutes before giving up his hand.

Azor took much less time, quickly flinging the disc with the words "All in" into the middle of the table. Radzivonau took a couple of breaths before forlornly mucking his hand.

The Artur Folding

[user76023] • Level 26: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Victor Paraschiv raised to 85,000 from the cutoff and Artur Voskanyan defended from the big blind to see a {9-Spades}{5-Clubs}{3-Hearts}. Any hope of fireworks though was quickly curtailed as Voskanyan quickly folded to a 100,000 chip bet from his opponent.
