Rob Wazwaz bet 15,000 from under the gun on a {k-Spades}{q-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} flop, and Kris Ehlen made it 37,000 to go. Mid-States Poker Tour Running Aces champ Ken Pates shoved all in for 112,000, and Wazwaz got a count. He pushed forward a call, and it was Ehlen's turn to act.

"How much do you have behind, Rob?" Ehlen asked.

"He can't reraise can he?" Wazwaz asked the dealer.

After a bit, Ehlen laid it down.

Wazwaz: {q-Diamonds}{q-Spades}
Pates: {3-Hearts}{3-Clubs}

It was set-over-set and Pates didn't find his one out.

"He can't reraise, can he?" Alexander said, jokingly mocking Wazwaz's attempt to look weak.

"He's tried that one before," Ehlen said.

Players are on their first break of the day, which ends in a few minutes.
