Shuffle Up & Deal!

The players are seated and ready to go, so it's time to shuffle up and deal!

Hand #2

Hand #2 - Thomas Savitsky has the button in seat 3, Friedberg raises from early position to 35,000, Hill reraises from the cutoff to 100,000, and Friedberg thinks for about a minute before he folds. Hill takes the pot.

Hand #4 - Eric Lynch Doubles Through Thomas Savitsky

Hand #4 - Bruce Van Horn has the button in seat 5, Lynch raises to 45,000, Savitsky reraises to 84,000, Lynch moves all in, and Savitsky calls with {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}. Lynch shows {7-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}, and it's a race situation. Lynch will need his hand to hold up to survive.

The flop comes {10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}, and Lynch retains the lead. The turn card is the {Q-Hearts}, and Savitsky picks up a gut-shot straight draw, and he can bust Lynch with an ace, a king, or a jack.

The river card is the {3-Diamonds}, and Eric Lynch doubles up in to about 200,000 in chips.
