David Martirosyan

Hand #21: Tom McCormick opened to 56,000 from the button and Bui raised pot, putting McCormick all in for his last 9,000 and McCormick made the call. McCormick turned over {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs} and was looking to fade an ace as Bui tabled {a-Spades}{3-Diamonds}.

The board ran out {k-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{10-Clubs}{6-Spades}{8-Diamonds} and McCormick found a much-needed double up.

Hand #22: Kazu Oshima opened to 32,000 from the button and Gregory Kolo called from the big blind. The flop came down {8-Spades}{9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} and both players checked. After a turn of the {9-Clubs} both players again checked.

The river was the {q-Spades} and both players checked. Kolo showed king-high and Oshima mucked

Hand #23: Oshima raised to 32,000 and took the blinds.

Hand #24: David Martirosyan raised to 32,000 from early position, Bui made the call from late position, and Ryan Schoonbaert three-bet from the big blind to 97,000. Martirosyan then raised pot, putting himself all in for 242,000.

Bui got out of the way and Schoonbaert thought for a moment before eventually making the call with {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}. He would need to see some love as Martirosyan had {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}.

The flop was {5-Clubs}{5-Spades}{k-Hearts} and after the turn of the {10-Spades}, Schoonbaert was now searching for a jack as his only out. He didn’t find it, though, with the {8-Diamonds} on the river and Martirosyan doubles, leaving Schoonbaert rather short.
