Josh Hillock - 23rd Place
Josh Hillock - 23rd Place

Only one hand later and same table. John Fontana was single big blind and Josh Hillock pushed 60,000 towards the middle of the table. All players except for Fontana folded but he announced call and was about to flip over his cards. The other players reminded him in time that the opponent had chips left behind and thus it was ruled as a call.

On the {10-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{A-Spades} flop, Hillock got his remaining 32,500 in with {4-Spades}{4-Clubs} and Fontana immediately revealed {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}. Only running fours would save Hillock and he was already drawing dead after the {3-Clubs} turn, the {8-Clubs} completed the board.

Linde Doubles Through Kim

[user153638] • Level 19: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Debbie Kim opened for 18,000 under the gun and was met by an all-in three-bet to 58,000 from Dylan Linde on the button. The blinds both folded, and Kim thought for a minute or so before making the call.

Kim: {6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}
Linde: {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}

Kim was no doubt hoping her opponent held two different big cards so that it would be a race situation, but as it stood, she was dominated by Linde's superior pair. The board ran out a dry {j-Spades}{5-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{3-Diamonds} and Linde doubled through.

With both players looking at a {3-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{9-Spades} flop, Inselberg moved all in and Vergara went into the tank for about a minute before opting to let his hand go. Inselberg showed {Q-Spades}{Q-Hearts} before raking in the chips.
