Hands #31-37: Puka Doubles Through Smith

• Level 32: 60,000-120,000, 20,000 ante
Lorenc Puka

Hand #31: Lorenc Puka got a walk in the big blind.

Hand #32: Mike Takayama got a walk in the big blind.

Hand #33: Puka shoved from the button and won the pot uncontested.

Hand #34: Puka got a walk in the big blind.

Hand #35: Takayama got a walk in the big blind.

Hand #36: Takayama called from the small blind and Matthew Smith checked his option.

The flop came {6-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}, Takayama bet 150,000, Smith folded, and Takayama took the pot.

Hand #37: Matthew Smith shoved for 1.3 million from the small blind and Puka called to put himself at risk.

Matthew Smith: {A-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
Lorenc Puka: {J-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}

Smith had the preflop edge and Puka needed to improve to survive. He caught up on the {K-Spades}{J-Hearts}{2-Hearts} flop, and neither the {9-Spades} turn nor {4-Spades} river were any help to Smith, so Puka took the pot to double up.
