Hand #175: George Holmes raised to 4,000,000 from the button and Koray Aldemir defended. They both checked through the {5-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{k-Spades} flop to the {9-Diamonds} on the turn. It was checked again for the {9-Clubs} to complete the board. Aldemir showed the {a-Hearts}{3-Clubs} for Holmes to table the {a-Clubs}{6-Spades} for the higher kicker to claim the pot.

Hand #176: Aldemir raised to 4,600,000 from the button and Holmes called. The {k-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{q-Hearts} was fanned out on the flop. Holmes check-called the 3,400,000 continuation-bet of Aldemir. The turn was the {k-Spades}, Holmes checked again.

This time, Aldemir did the same to see the {9-Spades} complete the board. Holmes took 39 seconds and then bet 9,000,000. Aldemir called to see the {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs} of Holmes who had a full house for Aldemir to muck.
