The dealer spread a flop of {q-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{2-Hearts} and the big blind checked to Bernstein who threw in a bet of 3,300. That was enough to push the opponent out of the hand and the dealer pushed the chips to Bernstein.

Grujic Turns a Staight

Tboss • Level 8: 500-1,000, 1,000 ante

With the flop reading {j-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{7-Clubs} Marko Grujic check-called a bet of 2,000 from Adam Hendrix. The turn was the {4-Spades} and now Grujic took the lead by firing out a bet of 4,500.

The {2-Clubs} hit the river and Grujic fired once again for the same amount, 4,500. Hendrix made the call and Grujic tabled {6-Spades}{5-Spades} for a turned straight and that was good enough to win the pot.

Kanit and Rezaei Go Head-To-Head

• Level 8: 500-1,000, 1,000 ante

Daniel Rezaei raised on the button to 2,000. The action folded to Mustapha Kanit in the big blind who three-bet Rezaei to 8,500. Rezaei quickly four-bet to 20,500.

Kanit asked, "what did you start with?" Then he jammed enough chips in the middle to put Rezaei all-in. Rezaei snap-called.

Daniel Rezaei: {k-Hearts}{k-Spades}
Mustafa Kanit: {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}

The board ran out {q-Clubs}{3-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}. Rezaei's pocket kings held and he doubled through Kanit giving him one of the largest stacks in the Pavilion room and likely the whole field. Kanit was left with crumbs and busted shortly after.

Hudon Five-Bet Shoves on Kade

Tboss • Level 8: 500-1,000, 1,000 ante

The action folded to Vanessa Kade in the cutoff who raised to 2,000. Eliot Hudon was next to act and three-bet to 6,000 which forced the blinds to quickly fold. Kade gave it a few seconds and put in the four-bet to 15,000. Hudon thought about it for a brief moment and announced all-in for a little over 90,000 in chips.

Kade had a bright smile on her face whiling surrendering the pot and throwing her hand into the muck.
