Hand #112: Carlton won the blinds and antes with raise to 150,000 from the small blind.

Hand #113: Carlton raised from the button, but folded when Joe Cada reraised all-in for is last 840,000 or so chips.

Hand #114: Polychronopoulos opened to 125,000 from under the gun, Taylor reraised all-in for approximately 1.2 million big blind, and that was enough to force a fold.

Hand #115: Cada opened to 120,000 in the cutoff, stealing the blinds and antes.

Hand #116: Cada opened to 120,000 from under the gun, Taylor shoved all-in for 1.4 million, and Cada made the quick call for his last 1.165 million.

Showdown:

Cada: {A-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}
Taylor: {10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}

The two were racing in this huge spot, but when the flop fell {6-Spades}{j-Spades}{a-Spades}, Cada got a big head start. A {Q-Hearts} on the turn improved Cada's hand, but actually gave Taylor four more outs to the Broadway straight. The {6-Diamonds} on the river was a brick though, and Taylor shipped most of his chips across the table.

Hand 111: Polychronopoulos Pushing Them Around

Jonathan_Zaun • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Hand #111: Taylor opened for 110,000, Polychronopoulos reraised to 275,000, and Taylor called. A flop of {7-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{8-Spades} rained down, and Polychronopoulos bet 350,000 to take it down.

Hands 106-110: Poly Want a Cracker

Jonathan_Zaun • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Hand #106: Taylor raised to 110,000 holding the button, and that was enough to take down the blinds and antes.

Hand #107: Polychronopoulos raised his button to 115,000, stealing the blinds and antes.

Hand #108: Polychronopoulos opened for 100,000 from the cutoff, and Carlton three-bet to 260,000 from the button. Polychronopoulos liked his hand enough for a four-bet to 450,000. Carlton was convinced, and his hand went into the muck.

Hand #109: Continuning to ramp up the aggression, Polychronopoulos opened for 115,000 from under the gun, but folded to Cada's all-in shove of 605,000.

Hand #110: Mutke raised to 100,000 from the button, Taylor called from the small blind, as did Polychronopoulos in the big blind. The flop came {5-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{4-Hearts} and Taylor checked to Polychronopoulos, who responded with a bet of 175,000. Mutke reraised to 430,000, but folded when Polychronopoulos moved all-in.

Hands 101-105: The Slow Lane

Jonathan_Zaun • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Hand #101: Taylor raised his button to 110,000, and it was good enough to claim the blinds and antes.

Hand #102: Polychronopoulos limped in on the button, Carlton completed his small blind, and Cada checked his option. The flop came {9-Spades}{a-Spades}{k-Spades}, Cada checked, Polychronopoulos bet 75,000, and Carlton got out of the way. Cada called to see the {6-Diamonds} on the turn, which both players checked. On the {8-Clubs} river, Cada check-folded to a bet of 100,000 by Polychronopoulos.

Hand #103: Mutke went for a walk in the big blind.

Hand #104: Polychronopoulos raised to 115,000 from under the gun, and Taylor called from the big blind. The flop of {4-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} was checked by Taylor, and Polychronopoulos fired a bet of 150,000, which earned him the pot.

Hand #105: Polychronopoulos got a walk in the big blind.
