• Level 2: 2,000-4,000, 0 ante

During this next level, the two players on each team will switch streets they play, with Ben Lamb starting for Team America and Tony G starting for Team Europe.

On the first hand, Lamb raised from the button to 8,000 and Tony G called to see the {J-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{4-Hearts} flop. Jake Cody was first and bet 9,000. Jason Mercier raised to 22,000. Cody studied and then reraised to an unknown amount. Mercier moved all in and Cody called.

Team America showed pocket aces and was up against Team Europe's {K-Hearts}{8-Hearts}.

The turn and river were both fives and both non-hearts, keeping Team America's aces in front and winning them the hand.

Team America now has a strangle hold on the match with 192,000 in chips to Team Europe's 8,000.
