Nick Yunis waits for the other tables to finish

On the first round of hand-for-hand, Nick Yunis limped from the small blind and Raminder Singh shipped all in from the big with a slightly bigger stack. Yunis called and the two players had to wait for the action to finish on the other three tables.

Once their business was complete, the hands were tabled.

Yunis: ThTc
Singh: KhQh

It was a flip and Yunis faded the suited over cards on the 7s6h2c5s2s run out. The dealer counted down his stack and he doubled to 325,000 while leaving Singh with only 30,000.

Matthew Lambrecht

The second hand was uneventful but the third saw Matthew Lambrecht call a 44,500 shove from the hijack while he was in the cutoff. The button and blinds released, the other tables finished their action, and the cards were flipped up.

Lambrecht: AhTs
Hijack: KdJd

Lambrecht was in good shape to put the field in the money and the no-paint 9h4c2s9s7c board sealed the deal.
