Hand #81: Daniel Negreanu raised from under the gun to 650,000. Action folded to Tobias Reinkemeier in the small blind, and he called.

The flop came down {10-Clubs}{8-Spades}{5-Hearts}, and both players checked through to the {J-Diamonds} turn. Reinkemeier bet 800,000, and Negreanu called.

The river was the {10-Hearts}, and Reinkemeier bet 2.25 million after a long thought process. Negreanu called, but didn't like what he saw when Reinkemeier rolled over the {J-Spades}{10-Spades} for a full house. Negreanu mucked.

Hand #93: Brandon Steven opened to 535,000 and took down the blinds and antes.

Hand #94: Rick Salomon limped under the gun and Gabe Kaplan raised all in for 2.935 million from the next seat over. Action folded back to Salomon who stood up from the table and called.

Salomon: {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}
Kaplan: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}

The flop came down {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{10-Clubs}, giving Salomon a full house of tens full of sixes.

"Put a ten out there!" said Kaplan. "One more ten!"

The deck failed to oblige Kaplan's request, as the board finished off with the {5-Clubs} and the {7-Hearts}. Kaplan was eliminated in 12th place and Soloman's stack has soared to 21.7 million.

Hand #95: Steven completed his small blind, Soloman shipped, and Steven folded.
