Hand 111: Maor Feldinger
Button: Ira Blumenthal (seat 5) – Feldinger raises to 55,000 from the small blind and gets a pass from Marcus.
Hand 112: Nicholas Bamman
Button: Maor Feldinger (seat 6) – Marcus, in the small blind, makes it 60,000 and gets an all-in call from Bamman in the big blind. Marcus requests a count and goes into the tank. It’s an extra 305,000 to make the call, but he folds.
Hand 113: Van Marcus
Button: Van Marcus (seat 9) – Marcus is another pot with a raise to 55,000. Everyone passes, and he gathers 48,000 in blinds and antes.
Hand 114: Van Marcus
Button: Nicholas Bamman (seat 2) – In a carbon copy of the previous hand, Marcus makes it 55,000 and gets no callers.
Hand 115: Van Marcus
Button: Brett Parise (seat 4) – Again, Marcus makes it 55,000 and this time, he gets a call from Feldinger. The flop reads Qd Ad Ac, and both players check. The turn is 9d, and again it’s check check. Marcus then pushes all-in after the 4s lands on the river. Feldinger has Marcus covered, but it will take 313,00 to call. Two minutes go by before Feldinger calls, but Marcus shows A Q for a full house. It’s a massive turnaround and takes Van ‘sirens’ Marcus to more than 900,000 in chips.
Hand 116: Van Marcus
Button: Ira Blumenthal (seat 5) – Out of respect for Marcus’s giant pot, no-one goes near his big blind.
Hand 117: Ira Blumenthal
Button: Maor Feldinger (seat 6) – Van Marcus pops it to 60,000 and gets a call from Blumenthal. It’s checked down and Blumenthal ends the run of Marcus scooping in the chips.
Hand 118: Maor Feldinger
Button: Van Marcus (seat 9) – Feldinger makes the push with his short stack but receives calls from Marcus and Parise. It’s checked all the way on a board of 9d 9h 6s 3c Qh, and Feldinger survives when he shows a 6 to make two pair.
Hand 119: Van Marcus
Button: Nicholas Bamman (seat 2) – Marcus makes a move with a raise of 60,000 and takes the blinds and antes.
Hand 120: Maor Feldinger
Button: Brett Parise (seat 4) – Marcus again bumps it up to 60,000 and Feldinger pushes all-in. Marcus calls with As Qh, Feldinger has Kd 9s. The flop of 3h 7d Qc, hitting Marcus. The turn is Js, but Feldinger hits the Kc on the river to stay alive and double through to almost 250,000.
