Hand #42  –  Tyler Cornell raises UTG+1 to 90,000, Harut Arutyunyan calls from the hijack, and Owen Crowe calls from the big blind. All three players check to the turn on a board of [10h7d3c9s], Crowe bets 120,000, Cornell calls, and Arutyunyan raises to 355,000.

Crowe and Cornell both fold, and Arutyunyan takes the pot.

Harut Arutyunyan  –  3,100,000  (77 bb)
Tyler Cornell  –  3,700,000  (92 bb)
Owen Crowe  –  2,250,000  (56 bb)

Hand #43  –  Owen Crowe completes the small blind to 40,000, Harut Arutyunyan raises to an unknown amount, and Crowe folds. Arutyunyan takes the pot.

Hand #44  –  Taylor McFarland min-raises UTG+1 to 80,000, Tyler Kenney moves all in for 435,000, and Massoud Eskandari calls from the small blind. McFarland folds.

Kenney turns over [AcJh], and he needs it to hold to stay alive against Eskandari’s [KsQs].

The board comes [AhQc2c8h5h], and Kenney wins the pot with a pair of aces to double up in chips.

Tyler Kenney  –  1,025,000  (25 bb)
