Hand #69: Matthew Lapossie opened for 200,000 from the cutoff and won the blinds and antes.
Hand #70: Igor Dubinskyy opened for 225,000 from the under-the-gun position and Theodore Driscoll called from the big blind. The flop saw Driscoll lead out for 300,000, Dubinskyy called, and the both players checked the turn. When the completed the baord on the river, Driscoll bet 425,000 and Dubinskyy gave it up.
Hand #71: Matthew Lapossie opened for 200,000 and received a call from Brandon Eisen in the cutoff. Vimy Ha then flatted from the button, both blinds folded, and the flop came down . Lapossie was first to act and bet 250,000, which inspired Eisen to call. Ha then moved all in for 680,000 total, and both Lapossie and Eisen called.
Both active players checked the turn and then did the same on the river.
Ha had gotten it in good with a pair of nines while Eisen had flopped the nut flush and Lapossie an inferior flush with an open-ended straight draw. The turn had no consequence on the hand, but the river did as it gave Eisen a winning pair of jacks.
"I guess we could have gotten it in on the flop," Eisen told Lapossie as Ha silently exited in eighth place for $68,019.
