• Level 17: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Hand #13

Charles Nguyen opened to 35,000 from early position and Marcin Sobczak called from the blind. The flop was {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{7-Clubs} and Sobczak checked. Nguyen bet 50,000 and Sobczak folded.

Hand #14

David Luttbeg raised to 27,000 from middle position and Brian Wong three-bet all in and it folded back around to Luttbeg, who also folded.

Hand #15

David Luttbeg opened to 28,000 from middle position and Olivier Doremus pushed all in. The action folded back to Luttbeg who asked for a count. It was 88,000 and Luttbeg thought for a moment before making the call. Doremus turned over {3-Spades}{3-Hearts} and he was racing for his tournament life against the {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts} of Luttbet.

The flop was huge for Doremus, as it came down {2-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}. The board ran out {k-Clubs}{4-Clubs} and Doremus found the double up.
