Smith Chipping Up Through Parvizi

[user139916] • Nivo 21: 15,000-30,000, 0 ante

Tommy Le limped in from under the gun, Iraj Parvizi raised to 100,000 from middle position, Dan Smith reraised the pot to 360,000 from the small blind, Le folded, and Parvizi called. The flop fell {6-Spades}{2-Spades}{2-Hearts} and Smith bet, getting a quick fold from Parvizi.

A few hands later, Smith raised to 105,000 from the cutoff and Parvizi defended his big blind.

The flop came down {Q-Spades}{J-Spades}{7-Clubs} and Parvizi check-called 135,000 from Smith. The {J-Diamonds} turn fell, both players checked, and the {8-Spades} river completed the board. Parvizi checked, Smith bet 350,000, and Parvizi instantly called.

Smith tabled {Q-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{10-Spades}{4-Spades} for jacks full of queens, Parvizi mucked, and Smith won the pot.

Ashton Griffin raised to 90,000 and Esther Taylor called out of the small blind. On the {J-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} flop, Taylor bet the pot with less than that behind and Griffin shrugged, then moved all in a few seconds later. Taylor called all in and the cards were tabled.

Esther Taylor: {9-Spades}{8-Spades}{7-Spades}{5-Hearts}
Ashton Griffin: {A-Clubs}{A-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}

Two Limped Pots for Yockey

[user38873] • Nivo 21: 15,000-30,000, 0 ante

Iraj Parvizi rivered a queen-high straight on a flush draw board and Alexey Rybin checked behind with a set of queens to see Parvizi scoop the pot.

In the next hand, Aaron Katz limped in, as did Bryce Yockey, Dario Sammartino in the small blind and Rybin checked out of the big blind. The flop came {A-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{8-Clubs} and all players checked. Yockey bet the {A-Diamonds} turn for 45,000 and all opponents folded.

Right after, Katz limped again and Parvizi, Yockey and Dan Smith in the big blind came along. The flop showed {10-Spades}{8-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} and Yockey's bet of 90,000 won the pot uncontested.
