Before the blinds went up:

At the river, the board read Ah7c4h5c3s and Tommy Helms (Glendale, AZ) bet 20k.  John Dolan gave it some thought, then called.

Tommy HelmsTommy (above) showed 9d6d for the straight and John mucked his hand.  He’s down to only 15k.

On the next hand, Tommy and Marc Lowe got to the river with a board of Kc9s3d6cKh and Marc checked.  Tommy (button) fired 8k.  Marc let it go.  He’s down to ~75k.

Tommy’s up to about 110k.  He’s in town for a business trip for his dealership, but the work doesn’t start until Sunday, so he decided to come play a little poker!
