Feature Table Hands #34-38: McCorkell and Stephensen Get Active

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

Hand #34: Craig McCorkell opened for 350,000 from the hijack and took down the blinds and antes.

Hand #35: McCorkell raised to 350,000 for the second hand in a row, and once again he swiped the blinds and antes.

Hand #36: Bruno Politano opened for 350,000 from the hijack only to have Martin Jacobson three-bet to 850,000 from the cutoff. Action folded back to Politano and he called to see a flop of {2-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{5-}. Both players checked, the {K-Clubs} appeared on the turn, and the Brazilian checked. His Swedish opponent did the same and the {Q-Spades} completed the board on the river. Politano led out for 975,000 and Jacobson folded.

Hand #37: Felix Stephensen raised to 350,000 from the button, Craig McCorkell called from the big blind, and the flop came down {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}{9-Hearts}. McCorkell checked, Stephensen bet 250,000, and McCorkell made the call. When the {6-Hearts} appeared on the turn, McCorkell checked and Stephensen fired out 530,000. McCorkell called and the two watched the {3-Clubs} complete the board on the river.

McCorkell checked for a third time, and Stephensen kept the pressure on with a bet of 850,000. McCorkell gave it some thought but ultimately conceded the hand.

Hand #38: Stephensen raised to 350,000 from the cutoff and swiped the blinds and antes.
