With action folding all the way to the blinds, Marc Rivera limps in from the small blind and Annica Ivert on the big blind checks. At the flop of Q♠ Q♣ 8♠, Rivera checks, Ivert bet 3000, and Rivera called. At the turn of A♣, both players checked. Then on the river of 10♣, Rivera checked once more, Ivert bet 5500, Rivera called, and Ivert quickly mucked giving Rivera the pot without a showdown of cards.
Another short stack was denied a double up, this time it was David Erquiaga whose chips were down to just over 20K. In a hand raised by Johnson Tan to 6K, Erquiaga shoved, then was tank-called by Tan.
Erquiaga: 6♥ 8♥
Tan: K♠ J♣
Board: J♣ A♦ 9♥ 7♦ K♦
Needing to double up, Sebastian Sim shoved with his remaining 20K chips and was called by the big blind defender, Samad Razavi. Sim had A♥ 4♥, Razavi had K♥ 8♦, and with the board running K♠ 3♣ 10♣ 5♦ Q♥, Sim busted out.
Mike Takayama and Jay-R Mascunana faced off with an all in preflop situation. Mascunana had A♣ 8♣ and Takayama had 9♣ 9♥. With the board running 4♥ 5♠ 2♥ 3♦ 9♠, Mascunana landed a straight and doubled up to around 62K chips.
Luke Pangan just scalped two players with his K♥ K♠ winning against A♦ 10♠ and A♠ Q♦. Pangan now has around 220K chips.
As one of the few remaining ladies at the Main Event, Annica Ivert called a raise of 4500 by Marc Rivera, and Gavin Smith followed right behind her. At the flop of 3♥ A♠ Q♠, Rivera checked, Ivert bet 8000, Smith called, and Rivera opted to resign from the hand. At the turn of 7♠, Ivert continued to pump up the pot and banged out 9000 which Smith again smooth-called. Then at the river of 10♣, Ivert laid out 19K big ones and Smith made the call. Ivert won the pot with her 9♠ 8♠ flush. Smith mucked.
