Aces Well Disguised

Both players checked the {4-Diamonds}.

At the {2-Diamonds} river it was Song who took the initiative and fired a 3,000 bet which was snap-called by Toma.

Song turned over a pair of aces {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs} and Toma surprised by the hand of his opponent mucked his hand.

Thiemer Gets Another Pot Down

• Nivo 8: 500-1,000, 1,000 ante

After a limp from the player under the gun, Yi Lin made it 3,500. Frederik Thiemer next to him raised it to 11,000 and after folds from the rest of the table Yi called.

The two players checked all streets and reached a showdown at the {q-Spades}{k-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{2-Hearts} board.

Lin showed a pair of sevens {7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} but was not good to beat the {a-Spades}{q-Clubs} of Thiemer, who moves to over 250,000.

will_shill • Nivo 8: 500-1,000, 1,000 ante

The clock had been called in a hand involving Roko Rudic. Rudic had shoved river on {j-Clubs}{a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} and his opponent was taking time making his decision.

With 50,000 in the middle, Rudic's shove was for 37,200. The tournament official counted down the last ten seconds before the player mucked, flicking his cards in and accidentally sending them cartwheeling face-up on the table {a-Hearts}{10-Hearts}

Rudic pulled back his chips and tabled {k-Spades}{k-Clubs} for quad kings and took down the pot.
