At exactly the same time on two tables there were two pre flop showdowns with pocket queens battling pocket jacks.
Matt Salsberg opened to 40,000 with pocket jacks from under the gun and called when Michael Benvenuti three-bet all in for 380,000 from the big blind. The latter had the queens and held through a nine high board.
We raced over to the other table where Isaac Haxton was all in from the small blind with pocket jacks. A cold deck gave the shorter stacked Giuseppe Cefalu pocket queens in the big blind and the board ran . Haxton is the tournament short stack now.
