Event #86: $10,000 6-Handed No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Big Call Fosters Hope

• Nivo 15: Blinds 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

On a completed board of {2-Spades}{5-Spades}{8-Spades}{k-Spades}{7-Spades}, Kazuhiko Yotsushika moved all in for 139,000, and sent his heads-up opponent, Lucas Foster, deep into the tank.

After five full minutes, table sheriff Scott Seiver called the clock and Foster was given a thirty-second countdown.

Soon after, Foster shoved his chips into the middle to call, and got the best news any poker player could hear, "Nice hand, sir," as Yotsushika turned over {4-Hearts}{5-Hearts} to play the board.

"Yes!" shouted Foster as he proudly turned over {j-Spades}{10-Diamonds} for a jack-high flush to win the pot. Yotsushika exited the tournament as Foster's chip stack grew to 500,000.

Paur Doubles Through Plante

[user339872] • Nivo 15: Blinds 3,000-6,000, 6,000 ante

Jerry Wong raised to 12,000 in the hijack and was called by Taylor Paur in the cutoff and Santiago Plante in the big blind. The flop came {a-Clubs}{5-Spades}{4-Spades} and the action checked around to the {q-Hearts} on the turn.

Paur was the first player to take a stab at the pot with a bet of 16,000 on the turn. Plante called and Wong stepped aside. The river was the {3-Spades} and Plante checked again. Paur counted out a bet of 42,000 and Plante check-raised all in. Paur wasted little time before calling off his stack of 129,000. Plante showed {a-Spades}{10-Clubs} but Paur revealed the {10-Spades}{9-Spades} for a flush to double up.

Meanwhile, at another table, Pavel Plesuv was seen collecting a double up from Chino Rheem after making a set of eights. Plesuv doubled up to over 1,000,000, the first player in the tournament to reach seven figures.

Jensen Knocks Out Padilha

[user339872] • Nivo 14: Blinds 3,000-5,000, 5,000 ante

Gregory Jensen raised it up on the button and Pedro Padilha three-bet shoved all in for around 200,000 in the small blind. Jensen called and they were off to the races.

Pedro Padilha: {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}
Gregory Jensen: {6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}

The flop of {8-Spades}{3-Spades}{3-Clubs} left Jensen in the lead with his pair of sixes. The {2-Clubs} on the turn and the {4-Hearts} on the river were no help to Padilha who was eliminated.
