Chips Moving Rapidly

$3300 + $200 Championship No Limit Hold'em (Re-Entry)

After Brent Hanks opened early, Steve Buckner made it 31k to go.  Brent kicked it on up to 100k.

Steve gave it some thought, then open-mucked his pocket 9s, saying "I can't call there for my tournament".

On the turn with a board of K 9 3 8, Luis Urioste (bb) got all his chips in the middle against Adel Jo (hijack).  Adel tabled pocket Aces, but Luis held K8 suited for two pair.  The river was a 5 and Luis doubled up to ~300k.

Manh Nguyen was all-in pre-flop holding pocket 5s, but ran into the pocket 8s of David Stefanski.  The bigger pair held up and David took the pot.  Manh took the long walk to the rail.
