Love him or hate him, Roger Teska has moves.

Mike McDonald raised from under the gun, Teska called on his direct left, and the rest of the players folded. The dealer fanned {9-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}, McDonald check-called a bet of 55,000, and the turn was a third diamond - the {k-Diamonds}.

McDonald checked, Teska fired out 125,000, and McDonald called.

The river was the {a-Hearts}, McDonald checked a third and final time, and Teska bet 50,000 - roughly 10 percent of the pot. McDonald tanked for a bit before folding, and Teska picked up the pot.

Lampert Falls to Silver

• Nivo 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

George Lampert open-shipped all in for his last 100,000 from middle position. It folded to Kristoffer Edberg in the small blind who announced a flat call. Max Silver was in the big blind and then over-shipped all in which was a bet for Edberg's tournament life. Edberg opted to hang on to his remaining 400,000 and let go of his {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades} face up. Silver rolled over the {6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}, which was racing with Lampert's {K-Hearts}{9-Spades}.

Silver struck gold on the {A-Spades}{5-Hearts}{6-Spades} flop, giving him a set of sixes and a death grip on the hand. There was a small sweat, however, when the {7-Spades} rolled off on the turn, giving Lampert outs to made a spade flush or an inside straight. Nothing materialized, however, as the {4-Diamonds} finished off the community cards.

Silver scooped up the pot and now has about 2.2 million in chips.

Anton Iaroslavskii opened to 35,000 from early position, and the action folded to Isaac Baron in the big blind. Baron, who won the first two hands of the level at the time, moved all in for 366,000, and Iaroslavskii tank-called.

Iaroslavskii: {a-Spades}{j-Hearts}
Baron: {10-Spades}{10-Hearts}

The dealer spread {3-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{2-Diamonds}, changing very little, and the turn brought paint. Thankfully for Baron, the {q-Clubs} missed Iaroslavskii, as did the {5-Diamonds} on the river.

Baron, known as "westmenloAA" online, doubled to 756,000 chips, while Iaroslavskii fell to 596,000.
