Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

Feature Table Hands #24-28: Politano Mixing It Up

• Level 31: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante

Hand #24: Eddy Sabat raised to 350,000 from the hijack and took down the blinds and antes.

Hand #25: Bruno Politano raised to 350,000 from the button, Martin Jacobson called from the big blind, and it was heads-up action to the {8-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{8-Clubs} flop. Both players checked, the {7-Clubs} appeared on the turn, and again it went check-check. The {J-Hearts} river saw Jacobson bet 400,000, and Politano called. Jacobson tabled {a-Diamonds}{4-Spades}, but it was no good as Politano had rivered a jacks and eights with {k-Hearts}{j-Spades}.

Hand #26: Politano opened for 350,000 from the cutoff and Andrey Zaichenko called from the big blind to see a flop of {10-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}. Zaichenko checked, Politano bet 380,000, and Zaichenko called, which brought about the {J-Spades} on the turn. Zaichenko checked, Politano bet 785,000, and again Zaichenko called.

When the {6-Hearts} completed the board on the river, Zaichenko checked for a third time and Politano fired a hefty 1.48 million. This time it worked as Zaichenko released his hand.

Hand #27: Mark Newhouse raised to 325,000 from middle position, Politano called from the hijack, and the two saw a flop of {q-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{6-Diamonds}. Newhouse led out for 400,000, and Politano wasted little time in releasing his hand.

Hand #28: Craig McCorkell opened for 350,000 under the gun, Felix Stephensen called from the small blind, and it was heads-up action to the {7-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} flop. Both players checked, the {5-Diamonds} appeared on the turn, and Stephensen bet. McCorkell quickly folded and that was the end of that.
