Wes Ingram: {k-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
Nipun Java: {a-Diamonds}{j-Spades}

Mebrahtu Commits Herself; Doubles Gennaios

• Level 21: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante

After an under-the-gun player raised to 40,000, Yordanos Mebrahtu three-bet to 115,000. Kostantinos Gennaios then shoved all in for 245,000 and the original raiser folded.

"I think I committed myself. I can't fold," Mebrahtu said as she called.

Kostantinos Gennaios: {k-Clubs}{k-Hearts}
Yordanos Mebrahtu: {9-Spades}{9-Clubs}

Mebrahtu failed to hit the {j-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds} board and sent the chips over to Gennaios.
