Jeff Trudeau opened the action with a raise to 65,000. Fabian Foster called from the button and Blaise Ingoglia and David Hunt followed suit from the big blind. They were four-handed.
Flop: – Ingoglia checked and Hunt promptly shoved for 305,000 total. Trudeau folded and it was on Foster. Foster, who had both Hunt and Ingoglia covered, thought for a minute or two before he shoved. Ingoglia snapped off.

O’Donnell: for queen-high Carr: for jack-high (missed heart draw)
