Blain vs. Dorey Over at Table 8

Level 1 : 50-100, 0 ante

We happened upon a decent pot over at Table 8. We caught the action on the river with a board reading {6-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{9-Clubs}{9-Hearts} and about 4,100 in the pot. Full Tilt Poker Ambassador Dermot Blain had checked from the small blind and William Ranulf Dorey took the opportunity to bet 2,075 from the big. Blain, who burst onto the poker scene with a win in the 2009 APPT Macau Main Event for $540,000, gave it some thought but ultimately released his hand.

Despite duking it out in that hand, both Blain and Dorey have gotten off to good starts and are above the starting stack. Here's a look at the rest of the Table 8 lineup:
