AnthonyThompson • Level 38: 60,000-120,000, 15,000 ante

Action folded around to Matt "berkey11_s4y" Berkey who raised all in for 9,149,831 and Ofir "panda15" Mor called off his 2,941,919 stack from the big blind.

Ofir "panda15" Mor: {q-Hearts}{q-Spades}
Matt "berkey11_s4y" Berkey: {k-Clubs}{3-Clubs}

Mor was ahead and improved with the {a-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} flop but it also gave Berkey the flush draw.

Berkey didn't have to wait long as the {8-Clubs} turn completed his flush and the {3-Spades} river ended Mor's tournament in ninth place.

Ryan "rbam13" Bambrick raised to 200,000 from the cutoff and was met by a three-bet to 640,625 from Michael "ha8me" Policastro in the small blind. Bambrick responded by four-bet jamming for 1,227,625 and Policastro called.

Ryan "rbam13" Bambrick: {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}
Michael "ha8me" Policastro: {a-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}

Bambrick was looking to dodge an ace or some other bad beat, and he successfully did so on both the {3-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{6-Clubs} flop and {j-Diamonds} turn. Unfortunately for him, the {a-Spades} spiked on the river to give Policastro a winning pair of aces.
