Hand #168: Martin Kozlov opened the cutoff to 300,000, Matt Berkey called on the button, and Dylan Drazen defended his big blind to create three-way action.

The flop was Ts8s3s. It checked to Berkey, who bet 500,000, and only Drazen called. They both checked through the 6c turn and the 6s river.

“Full house,” Drazen announced the surprise. He showed 3c3d to prove it, winning the pot with treys full.

“That’s so sick,” Berkey said. “I turned a straight.” He showed 7c9c.

Hand #169: Dylan Drazen completed in the small blind, and Michael Aron “optionized” to 500,000 in the big blind, as emcee Joe Stapleton called it. Drazen folded, and Aron won the pot.

Hand #170: Yi Chi Li open-shoved the cutoff for about 1,600,000, winning the blinds and antes.

Hand #171: Michael Aron opened the button to 350,000, winning the blinds and antes.

Hand #172: Michael Aron opened the cutoff to 300,000, and Matt Berkey called in the small blind.

The flop was Js3h3d. Berkey led out for 375,000, and Aron called. The turn was the 6d, and a follow-up bet of 1,000,000 from Berkey earned him the pot with no further resistance.

Dylan Drazen – 10,925,000 (73 bb)
Matt Berkey – 6,400,000 (43 bb)
Michael Aron – 4,625,000 (31 bb)
