Hand #41: Jake Cody had the button, but we got distracted and missed this one. Aplogies. It was just a raise-and-take, though.
Hand #42: Shawn Buchan had the button. Elio Fox opened to 85,000 from middle position, and Jake Cody flatted in the cutoff. It was heads-up to the flop, and Fox took his pause. He snagged a blue plaque from the top of his tower, added some red and gray chips, and bet 140,000. Cody leaned forward just a bit, adjusting in his chair and eyeing up Fox's big stack. He studied some more, then made a raise to 365,000 total. With his hands clasped in front of his mouth, Fox let out a couple deep breaths before surrendering.
Hand #43: Moritz Kranich had the button, and he raised to 85,000 first into the pot. In the small blind, Chris Moorman reraised to 230,000, but the action wasn't done there. Next door, Brian Roberts doubled it with a four-bet to 460,000, and Kranich responded by shoving all in. It was 2.35 million total, and Moorman was deep in thought. He was covered, and he folded, and Roberts frowned and folded without incident, sending the pot to Kranich. The German is up to 3.075 million now.
Hand #45: Chris Moorman had the button. Shawn Buchanan raised to 95,000 in middle position, and it won him the blinds and antes.
Hand #46: Brian Roberts had the button. Before it got to him, Chris Moorman raised to 85,000 in the cutoff, and he took it down without a fight.
Hand #47: Elio Fox had the button. For the second consecutive hand, Chris Moorman's raise to 85,000 was enough to win the pot.
Hand #48: Dermot Blain had the button. Brian Roberts raised to 85,000, and Blain three-bet shoved all in. "Can you count it?" Roberts asked with a bit of a grimace. He was still cringing when he heard 485,000 announced, and he counted down his stack to assess the potential damage, apologized for thinking, and folded.
Hand #49: Jake Cody had the button, and the table folded through him and around to the blinds. In the small, Shawn Buchanan raised to 165,000, and Moritz Kranich folded his big blind quickly.
Hand #50: Shawn Buchanan had the button. In middle position, Elio Fox raised to 85,000, and Dermot Blain once again three-bet shoved. This time it was for a bit more than last time to, and it was Jake Cody who was the most curious to learn the number. He appeared to be thinking about it, but he folded, as did the rest of the table, including Fox.
