Grochocki Gone From Tournament

• Nível 20: 6,000-12,000, 0 ante

Another three-bet pot contested between "römpsä" and Pedro "LgwZ" Grochocki and in heartbreak for the latter. Grochocki committed the last of his stack on the {j-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{9-Clubs} flop. "römpsä" who had a pair of kings in his hand was ahead of his opponents flopped top pair. The {8-Spades} turn gave Grochocki an open-ended straight draw but missed it on the river as the {2-Clubs} came in.

"HudsonCE" Doubles Through Drinan

• Nível 19: 5,000-10,000, 0 ante

"HudsonCE" and Connor "blanconegro" Drinan called the opening raise from "KisuKe_7" to see the {a-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{3-Clubs} flop. "HudsonCE" then check raised "KisuKe_7" only for Drinan to call and the original raiser get out of the way.

"HudsonCE" moved all-in on the {8-Diamonds} turn and was called. Drinan had a host of straight draws to hit as well as having the gut-shot to the Royal Flush but the {6-Clubs} river meant the top set from "HudsonCE" held.
