Sahar Khajavi raised from UTG/cutoff to 35,000, Vanessa Kade called all in from the button for 20,000, and Mica Lamar also called. There was 90K in the main pot, and another 30K in the side pot.

Lamar and Khajavi checked all the way down on a board of 10d9c3s10c10s, and all three players turned over their cards.

Sahar Khajavi:  AcJd  (ace high)
Mica Lamar:  Kc4c  (king high)
Vanessa Kade:  Ah3h  (full house, tens full of threes)

Kade won the pot with her full house to more than quadruple her chip stack to 90,000. These were the approximate chip counts after the hand:

Seat 1.  Vanessa Kade  –  90,000  (6 bb)
Seat 2.  Mica Lamar  –  360,000  (24 bb)
Seat 3.  Ana Huete  –  460,000  (31 bb)
Seat 4.  Sahar Khajavi  –  400,000  (27 bb)

A couple minutes later, Mica Lamar moved all in from the button for 360,000, and Ana Huete called from the small blind with QhQd. Lamar turned over AhKc, and Lamar needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came AcJd8s5d2s, and Lamar paired her ace on the flop to win the pot and double up in chips.

Mica Lamar  –  750,000  (50 bb)
Ana Huete  –  100,000  (7 bb)

Two hands later, Vanessa Kade got it all in from the small blind for 60,000 with 9h9c, and she needed it to hold to stay alive against the 4h3d of Mica Lamar in the big blind.

The board came QsQdJd3cJc. The double-paired board counterfeited Kade’s pocket nines, but she still won the pot with nine high to double up in chips.

Vanessa Kade  –  135,000  (9 bb)
Mica Lamar  –  675,000  (45 bb)

With four players remaining, the average chip stack is about 330,000 (22 big blinds). The remaining players are guaranteed at least $1,155 each.
