The two remaining players, Erle Mankin and Paul Michaelis are acting fast while also chatting. Here are some of the hands we've just followed:

Hand #1: The flop was {8-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{5-Spades}, Mankin check-called the 7,000 bet of Michaelis. The turn was the {10-Diamonds} and Mankin check-called the 17,000 bet of Michaelis. The {8-Diamonds} on the river completed the board and they both checked. Mankin showed {Q-Diamonds}{10-Spades} for two pairs with the queen kicker. Michaelis showed {10-Hearts} for the same two pairs but mucked the rest as it was a lower kicker.

Hand #2: Mankin raised to 8,000 and Michaelis called. The flop gave them {10-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} and Michaelis check-called the 7,000 bet of Mankin. The turn was the {8-Clubs}, Michaelis opened to 10,000, and Mankin called. The {4-Diamonds} on the river completed the board, Michaelis bet 36,000, and Mankin folded.

Hand #3: Michaelis raised to 6,500 and Mankin called. The flop was the {4-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{2-Spades} and Mankin check-called the 6,000 bet of Michaelis. The {4-Diamonds} came on the turn and Mankin check-called the 12,000 bet of Michaelis. The {Q-Clubs} on the river meant Mankin check-called the 25,000 bet of Michaelis. Michaelis showed {6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} for two pairs, sixes and fours. Mankin mucked.

Hand #4: Mankin raised to 6,000 and Michaelis called. The flop came {6-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{K-Spades}, Michaelis checked, Mankin opened to 6,000, Michaelis raised to 16,000, and Mankin went all in. Michaelis stood up, asked for a count, had a think, and then decided to call. Mankin still had 136,500 behind.

Mankin: {K-Clubs}{4-Hearts}
Michaelis: {K-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}

The turn was the {Q-Spades} and the river was the {J-Spades} so Mankin doubled up.
