Four More Hands

Level 15 : 3,000/5,000, 5,000 ante

The clock has been paused and the tournament director has announced each table will play four more hands before bagging and tagging to end the night.

Hastings Check-Raises the Flop

Level 15 : 3,000/5,000, 5,000 ante

A player in the hijack limped in, as did the small blind and Brian Hastings checked his option from the big blind.

On the flop {5-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{3-Clubs}, Hastings checked and the hijack player bet 13,000. The player in the small blind made the call, but Hastings woke up with a raise to 50,000 and both players folded.
