Hand #64: Ari Engel raised to 275,000 on the button and Pablo Melogno tank-folded his big blind.

Hand #65: Melogno opened to 225,000 and Engel three-bet to 825,000. Melogno called and the flop came {10-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}. Engel led out for 900,000 and Melogno called to see the {7-Clubs} on the turn. Engel announced all in for 3,845,000 and Melogno was left shaking his head as he finally folded.

Hand #66: Engel made it 275,000 on the button and Melogno defended. The flop came {9-Clubs}{8-Spades}{6-Diamonds} and the two players checked through to the {10-Hearts} on the turn and the {a-Spades} on the river. Melogno turned over {7-Hearts}{4-Hearts} for a straight and Engel mucked.

Hand #67: Melogno raised to 200,000 on the button and Engel re-raised to 800,000. Melogno called and the flop came {k-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}. Engel led out for 900,000 and Melogno slid out a raise to 2,085,000. Engel shipped all in for 6,220,000 and Melogno quickly called.

Ari Engel: {a-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}
Pablo Melogno: {k-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}

Melogno held the best hand but Engel had a straight draw. He also turned a flush draw on the {8-Hearts} turn card and the {j-Diamonds} on the river gave Engel a straight. It was a massive pot for nearly all of the chips in play, leaving Melogno with just seven big blinds.
