Chris De Maci made up the loose change from the small blind and Naoya Kihara checked. The flop was {A-Spades} {7-Clubs} {4-Clubs} and De Maci called a 60,000 Kihara bet. The turn was the {7-Spades} and Kihara picked up the pot with a 140,000 bet.

In the next hand Kihara raised to 100,000 on the button and De Maci called. The flop was a rather sumptuous looking {K-Clubs} {10-Clubs} {J-Spades}. This is where it got interesting because De Maci check-raised to 360,000 after Kihara had bet 140,000. The ice cool lad from Tokyo made the call and we moved onto the turn. The dealer placed the {J-Diamonds} onto the felt and both players checked through to the {8-Diamonds} on the river. De Maci made the check and Kihara bet 630,000 and De Maci mucked his hand.
