Event #48: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Hands #36-39: Big Pot for Melogno; No Showdown Required

• Level 27: 30,000-60,000, 60,000 ante

Hand #36: Ben Keeline took a pot from Ari Engel, three-betting him on the button after his open to 135,000 on the cutoff.

Hand #37: Keeline took the next one with a single raise preflop - to 120,000 - in the cutoff.

Hand #38: Hughes gave Melogno his first walk.

Hand #39: Blind vs. blind, Melogno made up the big blind and Ari Engel raised to 210,000 total; call. On the {a-Hearts}{a-Spades}{6-Spades} flop, Melogno check-called another bet from Engel, this time 125,000. The {2-Clubs} on the turn was as far as the board got: Melogno led out for 175,000, Engel raised to 475,000 and Melogno pushed forward most of his stack, 1,515,000 chips in one of those Crocodile Dundee moments. Though these important decisions all took thinking time, Engel's fold was fairly rapid.
