zedmaster84 • Level 11: 2,000-4,000, 4,000 ante

No-Limit 2-7 Triple Draw

Daniel Negreanu raised from under the gun and then called a three-bet by Yuri Dzivielevski in the big blind. Dzivielevski patted and Negreanu took one new card. The Brazilian then bet 30,000 into a pot of 130,000 and Negreanu piled in his stack of green T-25,000 chips.

Dzivielevski needed some 90 seconds and then sent his cards into the muck to forfeit the pot.

Seven Card Stud

Tony Hartmann: {9-Clubs}{6-Hearts} / {2-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{2-Clubs}{q-Spades} / {2-Hearts}

Paul Volpe had already mashed together his cards and needed an ace or five to deal the final blow to Tony Hartmann, who was at risk for what appeared to be 75,000 total. However, Hartmann rivered quads to lock up the double and remained in contention.

River Check-Raise Takes it For Martini

OHairDJ • Level 11: 2,000-4,000, 4,000 ante

Limit Hold'em

Josh Arieh raised on the button and was three-bet by Julien Martini from the small blind. Action folded back to Arieh, who called.

Arieh called a bet from Martini on the {k-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} flop and both players checked on the {10-Spades} turn.

Martini checked again on the {j-Spades} river — prompting a bet from Arieh. Martini then check-raised and Arieh gave his hand up after a bit of thought.
