Ha Tran limped from middle position for 6,000, and Steve Yagudaev raised from the button to 30,000. Charles Rosenblatt called from the small blind, Robert Lupo called from the big blind, and Ha Tran called.

All four players checked to the turn on a board of Kc7s7d9h, and it checked to Tran, who bet 20,000. Yagudaev called, Rosenblatt folded, and Lupo folded.

Tran bet 35,000 in the dark, and the river card was the 3s. Yagudaev only had 20,000 left, and he thought for a while before he folded.

Steve Yagudaev  –  20,000  (3 bb)

Several hands later, after the blinds increased to 4,000-8,000, Steve Yagudaev moved all in under the gun for 20,000. Charles Rosenblatt called UTG+1, Aaron Kupin called from the hijack, Zyad Qasem called from the cutoff, and Seyed Hosseini called from the big blind.

All five players checked to the turn on a board of 6d5d2d8h, and Hosseini bet 25,000. Rosenblatt called, Kupin folded, and Qasem called.

The river card was the Ac, Hosseini checked, and Rosenblatt bet 10,000. Qasem folded, and Hosseini thought for a moment or two before he also folded.
