There have now been three hands dealt during hand for hand with no one finding the felt. Here’s a look at some of the action:

Hand 1: Mike Kemeter puts himself at risk by shoving 126k into a hijack open to 22k and a button call. Neither player made the call and he collected a nice pot without showdown on the bubble.

Hand 2: Jeff Wicker and Alex Berdichevskiy are two of the bigger stacks in the room, with Wicker slightly ahead in chips. They played a big pot after Wicker opened in early position, Berdichevskiy 3-bet to 54k from the small blind prompting Wicker to 4-bet to 99k. Berdichevskiy made the call leaving himself ~660k behind to see a flop of 4c7d4d. Berdichevskiy check/folded to a bet of 115k after quite a bit of thought saying he folded QxQx.

John Attanasio picked up QxQx and shoved ~100k but got no callers to put him at risk.

Hand 3: Alex Berdichevskiy was back at it again and with a pot of ~140k and the board reading Qd5dQd8d5s, he raised his opponents river bet of 46k to 126k and eventually got a call. Berdichevskiy showed down the KcQc and recovered some of his stack that he lost the hand before.
