With a raised pot before them, Tofie Runas and the utg players battled on a board showing 5♣ 10♠ J♠. Acting first was utg who led out 1000 which Runas raised to 2200. The utg called and both saw a turn of 9♣. Utg checked to Runas who continued to bet by sending out 5500. Again, the utg called. Then on the river of 6♣, utg checked, Runas bet 2200 which was enough to win the hand as his opponent folded. Runas showed his 10♣ 10♦ set.
Terry Fan picked up some chips against a player on the big blind when his raise to 1300 in mid position was called. At the flop, K♦ 4♦ 3♠, the bb checked to Fan who made a continuation bet of 1500 but only to get raised to 3700 by the bb. Fan flat-called the raise and both players went to see the turn land 6♣. Thinking he was on the driver’s seat, the bb led out for 4700 only to face a 14,500 all in shove by Fan. Too much to handle, the bb folded and Fan took down the pot.
With a raise to 600 by the mp player, four players made the call and a flop of K♦ Q♥ 10♠ landed on the board.

Dimayuga was ahead with A♥ K♣ against mp’s K♠ J♠. With the river of 2♦ not of any help, Dimayuga railed one and was shipped a nice pot.
On a board of 10♦ K♠ Q♣ 8♠, Jessie Supnet pushed all in and was called by the cutoff player. Supnet was ahead with K♦ Q♦ two pairs versus cutoff’s Q♠ 9♠.

Then with the river of 5♠ completing the board, both players checked and hj quickly mucked when he saw Zak’s K♠ J♦ for a straight.
Hans Lim three-bet the utg player to make it 1100 to go. The utg called and off to the flop they went with 8♦ J♦ A♥ landing on the board. The utg checked to Lim who banged out 2300 which was enough to get his opponent to fold. Lim showed his 6♦ 3♦ flush draw.
With a flop showing 9♠ A♣ K♥, Lester Edoc bet 500 only to face a raise to 1200 by the button player. Ready to dance, Edoc re-raised to 2500, and without much thought, the db called.

Edoc won the hand with his 7♥ 6♣ for a straight.
