After a flop of As10h9s, The player in the cutoff was all in for 15,600 with KsQs (spade flush draw with a gutshot straight draw), and he needed to improve to stay alive against Julian Wohlgemuth’s AdQd (pair of aces).

The turn card was the 7c, the river card was the 7d, and Wohlgemuth won the pot with two pair, aces and sevens, to eliminate his opponent.

Julian Wohlgemuth  –  150,000  (94 bb)

At a nearby table, the player in the cutoff limps, Jacobo Milhem completes the small blind, and Anthony Zinno raises from the big blind. The cutoff called, and Milhem folded.

Both players checked to the turn on a board of JhJd9d9h, Zinno bet 6,000, the cutoff raised to 16,000, and Zinno called.

The river card was the 5h, Zinno checked, the cutoff bet 22,000, and Zinno tanked for a while before he called. His opponent quickly mucked his cards, and Zinno won the pot without showing his hand.

Anthony Zinno  –  114,000  (71 bb)

Two hands later, Edgar Varas moved all in from UTG+1, a player called from middle position, and Anthony Zinno moved all in from the button, covering both players. The middle-position player folded.

Varas turned over Ac10s, and he needed to improve to stay alive against Zinno’s JsJd.

The board came Ah9s9c10c6h, and Varas paired his ace on the flop and his ten on the turn to win the pot with two pair and double up in chips.

Edgar Varas  –  48,500  (30 bb)
