Venovski {K-Clubs} {J-Hearts}
Ivey {A-Clubs} {2-Clubs}

Flop: {10-Diamonds} {2-Diamonds} {K-Spades}

Venovski took the lead, which was greeted by a cheer from his supporters. Ivey needed a deuce or an ace but the {8-Spades} and {4-Hearts} let him down and Venovski doubled up.

Andy Frankenberger has just slid from pole position to just plain bottom of the pole.

Andy Frankenberger raised to 160,000 on the button and Ali Eslami called in the big blind. The two foes saw the {7-Spades} {7-Hearts} {10-Diamonds} flop and Eslami check-called an 80,000 Frankenberger bet. The turn card was the {5-Diamonds} and both players checked. The river card was the {7-Diamonds} and Eslami checked his cards before betting 175,000 and Frankenberger called once again. Eslami turned over {6-} {5-} for the boat and Frankenberger mucked his hand.

With that hand Eslami became our chip leader.
