Overheard at the Tables

Eddie Hearn found no callers after moving in for 16,000 over the top of a button raise to 1,600. He showed queens when no one else called.

"He's my mate," Hearn said, pointing at the button player. "We talked earlier. I've got confidence."

"I'd have a lot of confidence too if I was in the small blind with queens," another player responded.

At the next table over, Casey Kastle and Toto Leonidas were discussing the pros and cons of the schedule for the 2009 World Series of Poker, which was released earlier in the week.
