Thomas Boivin

Johan Schumacher opened to 160,000 in the hijack and Thomas Boivin jammed in his stack of 1,300,000 from the small blind. Schumacher called and the hands were revealed.

Thomas Boivin: {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}
Johan Schumacher: {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}

Both players had similar stacks and they found themselves against each other in a classic flip.

The dealer spread the {6-Spades}{6-Hearts}{2-Spades} flop. The {7-Spades} turn left Boivin one card away from a double, but the {q-Diamonds} spiked the river, and Schumacher breathed a sigh of relief. The two players from Belgium embraced as Boivin took his exit.

Big Stacks Clash

BrandonBloom • Level 33: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante

Gershon Distenfeld raised to 160,000 from early position and David Tran defended the big blind.

The flop came {q-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} and Tran check-raised a bet of 160,000 up to 480,000. Distenfeld then reraised to an even 1,000,000. Tran looked at the stacks and pondered his decision before ultimately throwing his cards into the muck.

Betancur Puts The Pressure On

• Level 32: 30,000-60,000, 60,000 ante

The action folded to Jonathan Betancur in the small blind and he limped. Sohale Khalili raised to 260,000. Betancur made the call.

The faction checked through the {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{2-Hearts} flop.

The {k-Spades} came on the turn. Khalili led with a bet of 300,000 and Betancur almost instantly moved all-in covering Khalili who mucked his hand. Betancur scooped the pot.

Ap Garza opened to 125,000 on the button and David Tran three-bet to 400,000 in the big blind. Garza moved all in and Tran called fairly quickly.

Ap Garza: {a-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}
David Tran: {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}

Garza ran into Tran's big blind Big Slick and needed help. The {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} flop left him drawing slim to a runner-runner flush, but he was dead on the turn as the {j-Clubs} and {6-Diamonds} completed the board.
