Andres Jeckeln

Matija Dobric opened to 1,000,000 from early position and was called by Andres Jeckeln in the small blind as well as Tom Kunze out of the big blind.

Matija Dobric:   

Though Jeckeln was ahead, his opponent did have a lot of straight and flush outs. The   turn immediately ended affairs with Jeckeln rising from his seat prior to the meaningless   river. He collects $323,100 for his impressive 21st-place finish while Dobric ascends to the tournament chip lead.

Setna Jams on Diaz

David Diaz raised to 1,000,000 from middle position and was three-bet to 3,200,000 by Jimmy Setna in the big blind.

Diaz was quite demonstrative in his decision-making, tilting his head back and forth as he weighed his decision and counting his chips before cutting out a call.

The flop came     and without much hesitation, Setna moved all in for a bit under 7,000,000.

Diaz didn't take long before picking up his cards and dropping them in front of the dealer, sending the pot to Setna.

Eames Essentially Doubles in Bizarre Clicking War With Rebei

John Eames

Karim Rebei raised it up to 1,400,000 in the small blind with the    and was called by John Eames in the big blind, who reluctantly came along with the   . What followed was the     flop on which Rebei checked after almost a minute and nearly identical time was spent for consideration by Eames, which then led to a bet worth 850,000 with his full house.

Rebei was having none of it, mulling over his next move for more than a minute, then raised it up to 2,000,000. Some one and a half minutes later, Eames three-bet to 3,500,000 and Rebei then used another minute before clicking it back to 5,500,000.

The call by Eames followed and they headed to the   on the turn with more than ten minutes already spent during the click-back war.

Time moved as slowly thereafter but with fewer twists as Rebei bet 3,275,000 and Eames called as they headed to the   on the river. Rebei now bet 4,500,000 with complete air and then instantly folded his bluff when Eames pushed all in for just 5,250,000 total, only 750,000 more into a massive pot but with zero equity on a stone cold bluff.

Asher Conniff

Mayank Madan made it 1,000,000 to go in the hijack and the action then reached Asher Conniff in the big blind. He took 44 seconds before three-betting to 2,800,000 and that sent Madan, who is sporting a Jaka Coaching patch, into the tank.
