Felix Stephensen

Hand #50: The {8-Spades} was ripped in half, and designated as the burn card. Thomas Sarra Jr raised to 615,000 in middle position, Andoni Larrabe defended his big blind, and the flop came {4-Clubs}{a-Clubs}{8-Hearts}. Larrabe checked, Sarra Jr continued for 840,000, and Larrabe called.

The turn was the {5-Clubs}, both players checked, and the {9-Hearts} completed the board. Both players checked again, and Sarra Jr raked the pot with {a-Spades}{q-Diamonds} for a pair of aces.

Hand #51: Mark Newhouse raised to 500,000 from under the gun, Felix Stephensen called in the cutoff, and Luis Velador three-bet to 1.4 million on the button. The action folded back to Newhouse, who folded, and Stephensen moved all in for effectively 11.11 million.

Velador went into the tank, sometimes staring at Stephensen who is right next to him, and over five minutes elapsed before he folded.
