Sweet Dreams Are Made of These

Yoni Simeon Houri raised to 1,200 from under the gun and then Christopher Sly three-bet to 3,600 from the cutoff seat. Tommy Vedes called from the big blind and then Houri called as well.

The flop came down queen high with two diamonds, {Q-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}. Vedes and Houri checked before Sly bet 4,200. Vedes made the call rather quickly and then Houri took some time. Houri's resulting decision was a check-raise to 11,000. Sly moved all in almost immediately for 35,300.

The shove had Houri covered and Vedes had both players well covered. He quickly called. Houri tanked for a little bit with 18,000 behind, but ended up folding and left Vedes to do battle with Sly. "I only have a pair of threes," said Sly. Low and behold, he was ahead.

Sly: {6-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}
Vedes: {A-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}

The turn brought the {4-Clubs} and the river the {5-Diamonds}. With the river, Vedes made his diamond flush and busted Sly. He's now up to 150,000 in chips and crushing, humming "Sweet dreams are made of these," as he goes on.

Daniel Negreanu In Trouble

Daniel Negreanu - super short stack territory
Daniel Negreanu - super short stack territory

When you are holding {A-Spades} {2-Clubs} on a flop of {A-Clubs} {4-Clubs} {2-Hearts} and your opponent has {4-Spades} {4-Diamonds} you are in a world of hurt. That is exactly the place Daniel Negreanu is in after running into the set of Erik Cajelais. It reduced Negreanu to 3,750 chips and they went into the middle a few hands later holding {A-Clubs} {7-Diamonds} but he was fortunate to double up against the {Q-Hearts} {9-Spades} of his opponent.

Negreanu now playing the super short stack.

Break Time

• Nivå 5: 200-400, 50 ante

This is the last break of the day and then we have one more level of 90-minutes.

Woman Down!

Tony G raised to 1,000 to open the pot from early position, and Richard Loth three-bet to 2,525. In the small blind, Erika Moutinho looked down at {A-Spades} {K-Clubs}, and that was plenty good enough to commit her last ~7,000 chips on a reraise all in. That folded Tony G, but Loth quickly called, showing down {A-Clubs} {A-Hearts}.

The board ran through {2-Spades} {J-Clubs} {A-Diamonds} {K-Spades} {7-Hearts} -- good, but not good enough for the lady. She is out.
