• Level 27: 20,000-40,000, 0 ante
Michael Deveronica

Michael Devornica raised to 80,000 UTG with just 10,000 behind. Matt Waxman called in the small blind but surprisingly (at least to Waxman) Francesco Barbero folded.

The flop was {6-Spades}{A-Hearts}{K-Spades} and the remaining 10,000 went in but neither had much.

Waxman: {Q-Hearts}{J-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} for a gutshot and the nut low draw.
Deveronica: {Q-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} for a solitary pair of nines that were currently ahead.

The {A-Spades} on the turn changed nothing but the {Q-Diamonds} on the river made Waxman a pair of queens with a jack kicker just beating Deveronica's ten-kicker.

"Yes, finally," said Waxman.

We have four remaining.
