Duhamel Takes the First Flopped Pot


Fifteen minutes into the level we found our first flop. Jonathan Duhamel opened for 1.25 million pre-flop and was called in position by Brandon Steven. Both players checked an all-small flop, {2-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{6-Spades}. Duhamel led out for 2.0 million on the {j-Hearts} turn and took down the pot after a fold by Steven.

"Cheering may or may not induce action," said MOC Robbie Thompson after the hand. "But it can't hurt." Word.
