Robert McLaughlin on the button made it 280,000 to go, the maximumm allowable (although he had a go at "let's just call it all-in for 400"). Big blind Konstantin Puchkov made the call.

Puchkov: {q-Spades}{j-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{8-Hearts}

The turn and river fell {6-Diamonds}{5-Spades} handing a different, but still good, two pair to McLaughlin.

Yarchever Triples Up

Tboss • Nivo 28: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante

Tam Nguyen raised from the cutoff to 205,000 Jeff Yarchever called, and the big blind squeezed to 820,000 and after a few seconds, Nguyen called. Yarchever went in the tank for three minutes before finally deciding to put his 940,000 in the middle, which both opponents called.

The flop came {9-Spades}{3-Clubs}{3-Hearts}, and the big blind fired out 500,000 which Nguyen folded to.

Jeff Yarchever: {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{7-Hearts}
Big blind {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{q-Spades}

It wasn't looking good for Yarchever on the flop, however the {q-Hearts} hit the turn and Yarchever chanted "Heart! Heart!" The {5-Hearts} landed on the river giving Yarchever the triple up and a healthy stack.

Lamora Busts Lawson, Bests Kempe

• Nivo 28: 40,000-80,000, 80,000 ante

Pot-Limit Omaha

Three players' four cards were on their backs before the flop after Ted Lawson moved all in for under 250,000, called by Brandon Lamora, before small blind Rainer Kempe three-bet to set Lamora in, too.

Lamora: {q-Clubs}{8-Spades}{10-Clubs}{7-Spades}
Lawson: {k-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{10-Spades}{5-Diamonds}
Kempe: {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{j-Spades}

All five community cards with no further betting: {9-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{j-Spades}. The jack on the river completed a queen-high straigh for Lamora, busting Lawson and dropping Kempe back to 1,500,000 after his hot run at the end of the last level.

Pot-Limit Omaha

Stephen Ma opened from the hijack to 210,000, Daniel Moravec called from the cutoff and Jonathon Sparks overcalled from the big blind.

The flop was {q-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{5-Spades}, Sparks checked and Ma moved all-in for 415,000. Moravec called quickly and Sparks got out of the way.

Stephen Ma: {a-Hearts}{q-Spades}{q-Clubs}{7-Spades}
Daniel Moravec: {j-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}

The turn was the {k-Clubs} and the river was the {2-Spades} changing nothing and Ma's set of queens was good.
