Brittney Stout opened from middle position, Joseph Graber three-bet on her immediate left. Action folded back to Stout who put in the four-bet. Graber responded with a five-bet to 21,600. Stout flatted from out of position.

The flop brought the {10-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{2-Hearts}. Stout checked to Graber, who bet 9,000, to which Stout check-called.

The turn fell the {j-Clubs}. Stout saw the single 25,000 chip left in Graber's stack and decided to lead out for that amount, putting Graber to a decision for all his chips in level one.

"I said I'd fold these if it happened in level one," said Graber, effectively telling the table his hand.

Eventually, he did fold and showed the {k-Spades}{k-Clubs} face up.

"Show one time," the table pleaded of Stout. She didn't, but she did tell her neighbor she had the aces.

"I didn't want you to fold preflop, that's why I just flatted. I almost put it in on the flop," said Stout.

"My intention was to bet-fold the flop. I don't know if I would have," reflected Graber.

Either way, Stout chipped up big early and Graber escaped the ultimate no-limit cooler with chips behind.

Details of some early action and bet amounts were relayed by Graber, Stout, and others at the table.
