Jameson Painter raised, and everyone folded. Over at the rail, there was cheering.
"Take it down, take it down, bravo! Pumpkiiiiiiinnnn!"
While play has been progressing at a steady pace on our final table, the Pumpkinites have been slowly trickling in.
We remember Painter's fan club from when he finaled the $2,000 Limit Hold'em event last year. Presumably they also made it out for his $2,500 2-7 final table last week, although we didn't witness that one in person. Either way, there are eight or nine avid Painter fans railing right now, all wearing orange and waving a banner that says "I Love Pumpkin". Some of them are wearing t-shirts bearing the legend "WWJRPD". Also railing, although not keeping with the color scheme, is Jimmy Fricke.
Painter raised it up the next hand as well and this time Georgios Kapalas called in the big blind to see a flop which he checked. Painter bet, Kapalas folded, and the rail got terribly excited.
"Yayyyyy!" came the chorus. "O-range, orange! Way to go, Pumpkin!"
