Hand #5

Al Decarolis limped in on the button, Vanessa Selbst checked in the big blind and the flop came {6-Spades}{10-Clubs}{2-Spades}. Selbst checked, Decarolis fired out 80,000 and Selbst check-raised to 205,000. Decarolis called.

The turn was the {j-Spades}, both players checked, and the pair both knuckled after the {A-Diamonds} river as well. Selbst revealed {a-Spades}{5-Spades} for the nuts and raked in the pot.

Hand #6

Decarolis limped in again, Jason Mo called on the button, Selbst completed from the small blind and JC Tran checked in the big.

All for players checked on a flop of {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{7-Clubs} and the turn brought the {j-Diamonds}. Selbst and Tran both checked, Decarolis fired out 150,000 and only Selbst called.

The river was the {5-Hearts}, Selbst led out for 180,000 and Decarolis called. Selbst showed {10-Clubs}{8-Clubs} for trip tens, but she was beat by Decarolis' {9-Hearts}{8-Spades} for a turned straight.
