Ka Kwan Lau nearly doubled up in a massive pot where he was all-in preflop for over 550,000 against an opponent who he had covered.

Opponent: {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{10-Clubs}
Ka Kwan Lau: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{3-Spades}

Both players had aces heading to the flop of {j-Spades}{4-Clubs}{7-Clubs}, which didn't put either player in the lead. The {6-Spades} on the turn gave Lau a flush draw and the {9-Spades} on the river gave him the best hand to eliminate his opponent in one of the biggest pots of the day.

Six players limped into the pot and AP Garza jokingly juked a raise before checking his option in the big blind.

Noah Schwartz in the small blind led out into his six opponents with a bet of 13,000 on the flop of {5-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{2-Clubs} and Garza called. The action folded around to Laszlo Bujtas on the button, who raised to 50,000.

Schwartz announced "pot" for a raise to 195,000 and only Bujtas called. The turn brought the {3-Diamonds} and Schwartz bet the pot again to put himself all-in. Bujtas quickly called.

Noah Schwartz: {9-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{4-Clubs}
Laszlo Bujtas: {8-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{4-Hearts}

Both players had flopped wrap draws and turned the same straight. They chopped up what began as a family pot when the {3-Hearts} peeled off on the river.

"That was a big hand," Schwartz told his opponent. "Big hand."

Negreanu Sits Down, Already Short After Doubling Wantman

dsalituro • Nivo 10: 2,000-4,000, 4,000 ante

Matthew Wantman bet 130,000 on a flop of {k-Hearts}{q-Spades}{6-Diamonds} and Daniel Negreanu raised enough to put him all in. Wantman, with about 20,000 behind, called with {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{9-Clubs} for a set of queens, while Negreanu showed {a-Clubs}{9-Spades}{6-Spades}{6-Clubs} for a set of sixes.

The turn and river came {10-Clubs}{j-Spades}, improving Wantman to a straight and leaving Negreanu to pay off most of his stack.

Sinn Already Thinking About Second Bullet After Doubling Ochana

dsalituro • Nivo 10: 2,000-4,000, 4,000 ante

Charles Sinn raised to 40,000 preflop before Eddie Ochana re-raised to 126,000.

"I'm going to have to start thinking about math," Sinn said, throwing in two time bank chips. Sinn eventually re-raised all in and Ochana called for his last 150,000. Sinn tabled {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{4-Hearts} but needed to improve against Ochana's {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}.

Sinn didn't get the help he was looking for on the {5-Hearts}{10-Spades}{9-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{q-Hearts} and Ochana doubled up.

"I still have the rebuy so I didn't give a s***," Sinn said while handing over the chips.

"Are you going to play differently on your second bullet," a tablemate asked him.

"I'll definitely play tighter. My VPIP might go to 40 instead of the 60 it is right now," Sinn replied.

Chip Counts as Deeb Considers Last-Longer Bet

connorrichards • Nivo 9: 1,500-3,000, 3,000 ante

Shaun Deeb told a player at another table that he was at around starting stack and the two considered making a last-longer bet before Deeb declined.

"Your table's a lot better than mine," Deeb yelled across the Amazon Tan section. "There's a lot of old guys over there."
