Justin Bonomo raised from the cutoff seat to open the pot, and Phil Galfond three-bet him from the button.
The two men took a flop of , and Bonomo check-raised a Galfond bet. The turn and river came and to fill out the board, and Galfond called Bonomo's bets on each street.
At showdown, Bonomo's was going to be hard to beat, and indeed Galfond could not show anything better than Broadway. The pot goes to ZeeJustin, moving him up to 36,000 and knocking Galfond down around 28,000.
Stefan Huber opened the pot under the gun, and Nikolay Evdakov made it three bets in position. From the button, Shaun Deeb reraised to four bets, and both Huber and Evdakov called the extra bets to go to a three-way flop.
It came , all suited and pretty-like. Deeb bet when they checked to him, and Huber stuck in a check-raise. That folded Evdakov, and Deeb called the extra small bet. That led them heads up to the turn, and Huber check-called another bet. He did the same thing on the river, and Deeb tabled the winning , having turned his wheel to take down the pot.
"I'm upset for you," table mate Greg Mueller said. "You're using up all your luck now."
Deeb's luck has taken his stack up to 76,000 now and into contention for the early chip lead.
The pot was raised (and likely rereaised) before the flop, and we picked up the heads-up action just as the dealer put down on the flop. Mizzi bet out from the small blind, and his opponent called from the button. That action repeated on the turn with Mizzi getting in a full bet.
On the river, the drew one last bet from Mizzi, but his opponent finally raised, and Mizzi called. The unknown player tabled for top pair, and that was good enough to take down the pot and knock Mizzi down to about 11,000 chips.
Noah Boeken was all-in for his last 600 chips before the flop against two opponents. His did not improve against Brock Parker's on the board and the Team PokerStars Pro hit the rail, only a few hands after his return from the dinner break.
Jameson Painter raised in middle position, and Nikolay Evdakov made it three bets from the button. In the big blind, Shaun Deeb four-bet it, and both of his opponents called to see a flop.
It brought out , and Deeb's follow-up bet was once again called by both players. That led them to the turn where Deeb bet again, and this time Painter ducked out of the way while Evdakov continued his calling ways.
They were heads up to the river, and Deeb check-called a bet this time. Evdakov tabled for top pair on the river, and Deeb broke into a fit of laughter as he mucked his second-best cards.
On a flop, Howard Lederer check-raised Erik Sagstrom's bet and earned a call. The came on the turn and Lederer fired out. Sagstrom raised and Lederer called. The river was the and Lederer check-called one more bet.
Sagstrom turned up for a full house and Lederer mucked.
"I'd better lower my expectations for today," sighed the Professor. He's down to only 3,100 in chips while Sagstrom is up to 42,000.
