Hand #48: O'Connor raised to 320,000 and Olivier Busquet called from the big blind. The flop fell {k-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{10-Hearts} and Busquet check-called a bet of 250,000 from O'Connor.

Hand #35: O'Connor limped from the small blind and Pierre Calamusa checked. The {9-Spades}{7-Clubs}{4-Spades} flop was dealt and O'Connor check-called a bet of 200,000. The {a-Spades} was dealt on the turn. Both players checked this time and the {8-Spades} landed on the river.

Hand #37: O'Connor raised to 250,000 from the cutoff and Joe Cada called in the big blind. The flop fell {q-Spades}{10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} and both checked.
