Match 2: Who's That On The Rail?

[user80015]

"OMG Donnie Peters and Marc Hodge are on the rail!" announced a fellow person in the media row.

Donnie who? Marc who? Who are these random people you are talking about you may asking from your computer back home.

Well you may know them better as donpeters, who is currently a blogger for PokerNews, and MaconMarc, who used to blog and report for us, watching this exciting heads up duel!

Why do you think that our fellow media row member stated this utterly useless fact?

Probably because it was the most excitement we've seen in the past hour!
