Three-Betting War

• Ниво 20: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

In the last hand of the previous level, Sergio Aido opened to 160,000 and Koray Aldemir three-bet to 500,000 in order to force a quick fold.

The new level started and Aldemir opened to 190,000. Aido fired back with his own three-ber to 470,000, and Aldemir took off his sunglasses briefly to check the stack of his opponent before folding.

Aldemir has increased his lead slightly without showdown, but both players are very deep to make for plenty of moves going forward.

Aldemir Takes Two Solid Pots

• Ниво 19: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Koray Aldemir has taken the lead after 10 minutes of heads up play by taking down two solid pots off Sergio Aido.

Hand 1

Aldemir raised to 150,000 and Aido called to see the flop come {Q-Spades}{8-Hearts}{2-Hearts}. Aido checked and called a bet worth 160,000 by Aldemir before doing so again on the {9-Spades} tun for 430,000. The {3-Hearts} river completed the board, and Aido checked for the third time. Aldemir was about to grab deep into his stack and move forward three towers for a bet of more than 1,500,000 when Aido said "it's okay," and folded.

Hand 2

Both players invested 160,000 preflop and the flop of {K-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{8-Hearts} was checked. On the {5-Spades} turn, Aido bet 175,000 and Aldemir raised it up for 375,000 on top to force a fold.

Soon after agreeing to a deal, Dan Cates got his stack in from the small blind. It was Sergio Aido who had raised to 150,000 from the button and Cates' shove was for around 1,400,000. Aido just wanted to have a rough estimate and nodded, called and the cards were turned over.

Dan Cates: {K-Hearts}{J-Spades}
Sergio Aido: {K-Spades}{Q-Spades}

"That is not a bad fold, eh?" Cates shrugged over to Koray Aldemir before the flop fell {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{2-Spades}. Cates had some chop outs, but the {4-Clubs} turn and {8-Spades} river were both blanks. According to the deal numbers, Cates takes home HK$7,7651,156 for his efforts.

Aido starts heads up with a solid, but not dominating lead.

• Ниво 19: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Dan Cates recovered a few chips and even got a walk when flipping over {Q-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}. Cates then asked to stop the clock and have a look at numbers again, which Sergio Aido and Koray Aldemir agreed to. There are 33 minutes remaining in the level.

Aido's Set Scoops Big Pot

• Ниво 19: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Dan Cates raised to 180,000 from the small blind and folded to a three-bet by Koray Aldemir out of the big blind.

The next hand would take far longer and again, Cates ended up second-best.

Cates raised to 120,000 on the button and Sergio Aido three-bet to 425,000 in the big blind, Cates called. On the {A-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{4-Spades} flop, Aido checked and called a bet worth 300,000 by Cates. After the {10-Clubs} turn, Aido checked again and Cates fired a second bet worth 575,000.

Aido just called and checked the {6-Clubs} river. Cates gave it plenty of consideration before making a decision, and ultimately tapped the table with a "I make a very tight check."

Aido flipped over {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades} for a set of tens, while Cates showed his inferior {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}.

Good Restart for Aido

• Ниво 19: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Within the first few hands after coming back, Sergio Aido increased his stack slightly.

Aido first raised the button and Koray Aldemir called out of the big blind. Aldemir checked, Aido continued on a flop of {J-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{2-Hearts} for 175,000 and that won the pot.

Then, Dan Cates opened to 120,000 and folded to a three-bet by Aido in the big blind.
