Nível 21 : 6,000/12,000, 2,000 ante
Brett Murray

On a board reading {q-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{2-Hearts}, Arash Behnam was in the big blind and led out for 105,000. Brett Murray was on the button and moved all in for a total of 303,000.

Behnam asked the dealer to pull his initial bet in, and it was 198,000 more for him to call, should he decide to. After about a minute in the tank, Behnam slid a stack of chips forward, indicating a call.

The cards were on their backs and Murray revealed {j-Hearts}{9-Hearts} for a flush draw, at risk against Behnam's {q-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}.

The turn was the {7-Spades} and the river was the {3-Hearts}, completing a flush for Murray and locking up a double.

The board ran out {7-Spades}{3-Spades}{3-Hearts}{j-Spades}{q-Spades} and Stout said, "Once is good," as he raked in the pot.

Nível 22 : 8,000/16,000, 2,000 ante
John Cynn
John Cynn

Demosthenes Kiriopoulos came into the day as the chip leader and is showing no signs of slowing down. In the early stages, Kiriopoulos has stayed aggressive and shown the best hand when he's needed to.

Most recently, Kiriopoulos looked down at his cards in the big blind after John Cynn had moved all in on the button for around 220,000. Kiriopoulos instantly called after seeing {K-Spades}{K-Diamonds} in his hole cards and was in great shape against Cynn's {A-Clubs}{8-Hearts}. The board ran out {7-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} and Kiriopoulos eliminated the first player of the day.

"How Good Do You Run, Bro?"

Nível 22 : 8,000/16,000, 2,000 ante
James Mackey
James Mackey

Steven Buckner raised to 35,000 from the cutoff and James Mackey defended his big blind.

The flop came {a-Spades}{q-Hearts}{9-Spades} and Mackey checked. Buckner bet 40,000 and Mackey called.

The turn was the {k-Clubs} and both players checked to the river, which was the {9-Hearts}. Mackey led out for 160,000 and Buckner asked for a count. He cut out some chips and analyzed his stack to see how much he had. Eventually, he called.

"Nine," said Mackey as he tabled {10-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} for trip nines.

"Jesus Christ!" exclaimed Buckner, mucking his hand and accidentally flashing the {10-Clubs}. "F!@#ing float!" he continued. "It's so sick how you run. So sick, bro. How good do you run, bro? How do you run, bro? How do you run, bro? How do you run, bro?" Buckner asked over and over again. "Nice hand."

Mackey scooped the pot and has just crossed the million-chip mark.

The turn brought the {6-Spades} and the river was the {J-Clubs}, providing no help to Zarcadoolas and sending him to the rail.
