After just a quick pause to prepare the table, the players are facing off across the table from each other.

Frank Gary gets a walk on the first hand of man-to-man play.

Nick Binger Eliminated in 3rd Place ($84,814)

Nick Binger - 3rd Place
Nick Binger - 3rd Place
Limit Hold'em:

Frank Gary has the button and folds. Nick Binger raises from the small blind and Jonathan Tamayo reraises out of the big blind. Binger reraises, making it four bets. Tamayo caps the action and Binger calls.

The flop is {2-Hearts} {10-Diamonds} {7-Hearts} and Binger and Tamayo get all in for Binger's last 69,000.

Binger: {3-Spades} {3-Diamonds}
Tamayo: {Q-Spades} {Q-Clubs}

The turn is the {10-Clubs} and Binger will need a three on the river to stay alive. As the railbirds cheer for a three to pop off, the river is the {J-Spades} and Binger is eliminated in third place. He'll earn almost $85,000 for his efforts.

As he exits, Binger makes his way over to his group of friends and mentions that he really wanted first place. His friends hand him a glass of freshly-poured champagne and congratulate him anyway. He smiles and moves on to his interview.

Chips Evening Out Again

Limit Hold'em:

Nick Binger has the button, and he lets his hand go. Jonathan Tamayo raises from the small blind, and Frank Gary comes along with the extra bet.

The flop shows up {8-Spades} {7-Hearts} {4-Hearts}. Tamayo bets and Gary calls.

Fourth street: {6-Hearts}. This time Tamayo passes it over, and Gary obliges him with a bet. Tamayo smooth-calls.

The river: {Q-Diamonds}. Both players check. Frank Gary tables king high, and it's the winner as Tamayo mucks his cards.

None of our three players can seem to pull away from the field here deep in the final table.

Fizzy Lifting Drink

With the first two bottles of champagne laying like wounded soldiers on the floor, the Binger contingent has just received a delivery of two fresh bottles of the bubbly.

Raise and Take

This portion of no-limit has been all raise and take so far. The players seem deadlocked with each other and no one wants to budge.

One thing that has changed is that Frank Gary has opened up and is playing more pots than he was before.
