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

Hand #40: James Hughes moved all in for 435,000 in the cutoff and picked up the blinds and ante.

Hand #41: Pablo Melogno raised to 125,000 in the cutoff and David Baker shipped all in for 850,000. Melogno instantly asked for the table chatter to stop as he needed to think. He eventually laid his hand down and Baker collected the pot.

Hand #42: Ari Engel raised to 135,000 in the cutoff and Wilbern Hoffman defended from the big blind. The flop fell {6-Spades}{5-Clubs}{4-Spades} and Hoffman check-called a bet of 150,000 from Engel.

The turn was the {10-Diamonds} and both players checked to the {6-Hearts} on the river. Hoffman led out for 400,000 and Engel tanked for a couple of minutes before calling. Hoffman showed {k-Clubs}{7-Clubs} while Engel was awarded the pot with {2-Spades}{2-Diamonds}.
