Below are five of the biggest and most interesting hands from the new episode.

After a couple of small pots to start the action, the stack sizes (minus Phil Ivey's as he was sitting outside at the time) came up on the screen for the first time.

Phil Ivey v Lazaro Hernandez – Pick up the bluff

Lazaro Hernandez limped on the button {10-Spades} "style =" Margin-down: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{8-Diamonds} "style =" margin-bottom: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15 and Jake Daniels bet $ 400 more from the small blind on that {k-Diamonds} "style =" Edge-down: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{7-Hearts} "style =" Bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15. Ivey exercised his option from the big blind with a raise to $ 4,300 {a-Spades} "style =" Margin-down: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{7-Clubs} "style =" Bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15 and Hernandez decided to call.

Daniels stepped out of the way and it was heads up action to the flop that came down {j-Clubs} "style =" Bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{6-Spades} "style =" Margin-down: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{9-Diamonds} "style =" margin-bottom: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15. Ivey went for $ 3,500 and Hernandez called with his straight draw. The {a-Hearts} "style =" bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15 in turn paired Ivey and he wagered $ 13,000.

Hernandez called it but missed that {j-Hearts} "style =" bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15 River. Ivey checked, however, and that opened the door to Hernandez to bluff with a $ 27,000 bet. However, it didn't work when Ivey picked it up and won the $ 97,200 pot.

Phil Hellmuth versus James Bord – Hellmuth gets no respect

Phil Hellmuth and James Bord

James Bord hobbled with that {a-Spades} "style =" Margin-down: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{9-Spades} "style =" margin-bottom: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15 and Daniels did the same thing from the cutoff with that {2-Hearts} "style =" margin-bottom: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{2-Clubs} "style =" Bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15. Ivey called with the {4-Diamonds} "style =" margin-bottom: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{7-Diamonds} "style =" margin-bottom: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15 on the button before Hellmuth raised from the big blind to $ 4,000 {j-Spades} "style =" Bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{j-Hearts} "style =" bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15.

No one was put off when all of the Poker Brat's opponents came to him and flopped {k-Clubs} "style =" bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{10-Diamonds} "style =" margin-bottom: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{k-Spades} "style =" Bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15. Hellmuth checked, Bord bet $ 7,000, and both Daniels and Ivey let go. Hellmuth called before checking in in the dark {a-Clubs} "style =" Bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15 turn what board gave the lead.

Bord bet $ 12,000 and Hellmuth leaned back in his chair. “What are you doing, Bordy? Are you trying to give me the money "Hellmuth called and added," I think you're trying to give it to me. "

Hellmuth then checked that {6-Spades} "style =" Margin-down: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15 The river and board did the same to win the $ 58,400 pot.

"We have ignition," said commentator Gabe Kaplan when Hellmuth shot from his chair and released some explosives.

In the next hand, Tom Dwan returned to the game and bought the button that put Hellmuth under the gun. He looked at them {q-Diamonds} "style =" Edge-down: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{q-Clubs} "style =" bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15 and raised to $ 1,600, which just Dwan called with that {a-Spades} "style =" Margin-down: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{2-Spades} "style =" Margin-down: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15. Both players checked that {4-Clubs} "style =" Bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{5-Clubs} "style =" Bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{k-Diamonds} "style =" Edge-down: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15 Flop and then Dwan bet $ 2,000 on the {10-Spades} "style =" Margin-down: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15 Turn. Hellmuth called and she {7-Spades} "style =" Margin-down: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15 completed the board on the river. Dwan checked, then bet $ 2,000 from Hellmuth.

Hellmuth then felt the need to bring Dwan up to date on what had happened to the hand before and how badly Bord had played.

Chamath Palihapitiya versus Tom Dwan – four of a kind

Tom Dwan

Chamath Palihapitiya spread to $ 1,600 and Dwan raised it to $ 5,000 to deal with {7-Diamonds} "style =" margin-bottom: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{5-Hearts} "style =" margin-bottom: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15. Action worked back to Palihapitiya and he tossed it back by making $ 17,000. Dwan refused to give up, tossed in the chips and the flop fell {5-Clubs} "style =" Bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{10-Spades} "style =" Margin-down: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{9-Spades} "style =" margin-bottom: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15.

Palihapitiya flopped in the middle set, leading for $ 20,000, which Dwan called with the lower pair. The {9-Diamonds} "style =" margin-bottom: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15 in turn, Palihapitiya gave quads and he checked to Dwan, who checked behind. On the {7-Clubs} "style =" Bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15 River, Palihapitiya fired $ 85,000 into the $ 76,000 pot, leaving only $ 9,000 behind.

"Wow," Dwan whispered as he moved in his chair. The man known as "durrrr" thought long and hard before calling.

"Quads," said Palihapitiya as he handed in the goods.

"It will," said Dwan with a smile. Send the $ 246,000 pot to Palihapitiya.

Brandon Adams v Chamath Palihapitiya – line up to lose

Brandon Adams

Palihapitiya increased to $ 2,300 with that {j-Spades} "style =" Bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{j-Hearts} "style =" bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15 from the border and Brandon Adams called hold the {3-Spades} "style =" Bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{3-Hearts} "style =" margin-bottom: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15 on the button. Both blinds fell and it was heads up to {3-Clubs} "style =" Bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{5-Spades} "style =" Bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{10-Clubs} "style =" Bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15 Flop. Palihapitiya bet $ 4,000 with his overpair and then called when Adams, who flopped a set, raised to $ 14,000.

The {2-Clubs} "style =" Bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15 in turn, Palihapitiya saw a bet of $ 22,000 and the check call {8-Diamonds} "style =" margin-bottom: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15 completed the board on the river. Palihapitiya checked again and called when Adams bet $ 35,000. The $ 148,600 pot went to Adams.

Not long after that, Ivey withdrew from the game and Jason Koon took his place. Koon bought in for $ 500,000, which meant over $ 2 million on the table.

Tom Dwan vs. Brandon Adams – Big Slick in Rockets

Tom Dwan

Adams raised it to $ 2,500 under the gun that held it {a-Spades} "style =" Margin-down: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{k-Spades} "style =" Bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15 just to have Dwan on the {a-Hearts} "style =" bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{a-Diamonds} "style =" Edge-down: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15 three bets to $ 10,000 in the big blind. Adams called and the {2-Hearts} "style =" margin-bottom: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{3-Clubs} "style =" Bottom margin: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15{9-Spades} "style =" margin-bottom: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15 ran out on the flop.

Dwan went on for $ 15,000, shouted Adams and the {10-Spades} "style =" Margin-down: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15 gave the latter a spade flush draw.

Dwan raised his stake to $ 40,000, but that wasn't enough to shake Adams, who called to see {4-Hearts} "style =" margin-bottom: -3px; "width =" 25 "height =" 15 River.

It was a brick for Adams, and he folded when Dwan moved all in for $ 145K into the $ 131,200 pot.
