Hand #178: Jeff Blenkarn raised to 360,000 and won the pot.

Hand #179: Mike Kachan raised to 240,000 and Blenkarn called. On the {Q-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} flop, Blenkarn bet 325,000 and Kachan quickly grabbed into his stack, making the call. Blenkarn checked the {5-Diamonds} turn and Kachan bet 275,000.

Both opponents stared at each other and Blenkarn folded after about one minute of consideration.

Hand #180: Blenkarn announced a raise and made it 240,000 to go, Kachan called. Kachan checked the {3-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{Q-Spades} flop, Blenkarn quickly bet 400,000 and his opponent already placed the chips for the call while it was announced.

The {8-Spades} turn was checked through and Kachan announced 395,000 only moments after the {Q-Hearts} completed the board. Blenkarn quickly called with {A-Clubs}{3-Hearts} but that was only second best to the {J-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} of Kachan.

Hand #181: Blenkarn got a walk.

Hand #182: Kachan also received a walk.
