Hand Updates?

There aren't any interesting hands to report. Really. The story right now is in the chip counts, because these two players are playing most of these pots for the minimum.

Heads-Up Play Is No Laughing Matter -- Or Is It?

The commentators are spending most of their time making jokes about the word "check." These players are from the Czech Republic, and they eat Rice Chex or Corn Chex for breakfast. Then they talk about hockey, because the players can receive fouls for checking.

Many different ways of saying there's a lot of checking.

Blinds Increase

Blinds increase to 15,000-30,000, with a 4,000 ante. Play continues without a break.

Passive Play

After 172 hands, Don Baruch and Jared Davis are playing about as passively as possible. Baruch's chip lead is over 4-to-1, but you wouldn't know it by the action.
