Rishi B gets out drawn

[user204797] • Level 11: 800-1,600, 100 ante

In preflop action Rishi B moved all in 17300 and got called by Rohit Malu.

Rishi B {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}
Malu {A-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}

The flop {9-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} made Malu bottom pair and gave him the lead. The turn {J-Hearts} put out a flush draw for Rishi B. However, the river {3-Spades} made Malu a full house and he adds the remainder of Rishi B's chips to his stack as the latter busts.

Dushyant Shekhawat and Uri Yochelman get eliminated

[user204797] • Level 11: 800-1,600, 100 ante

Sikander Kher opened the pot for 3200 and got called by Rohit Malu. Dushyant Shekhawat moved all in with about 25000 chips. Malu called as Kher folded.

Malu {Q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} flopped top two against Shekhawat's {2-Spades}{2-Hearts} with the board showing {5-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{5-Hearts} and he shipped that pot, eliminating Shekhawat along the way.

A couple of hands later, Uri Yochelman moved all in for his last 3800 from the small blind. Sikander Kher raised that to 10800 from the big blind and the limpers got out of the way.

Kher {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs} flopped a full house against Yochelman's {10-Clubs}{2-Hearts} and the dealer completed the board with {4-Hearts}{4-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{7-Spades} as Yochelman made his way to the exit.
