On the very first deal over here at the ESPN table, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier opened for a min-raise to 200. Daniel Negreanu reraised to 850 and Grospellier called. Grospellier checked to Negreanu on the flop. Negreanu bet 1,200 and it was enough to induce a fold.
On the next hand, Antonio Esfandiari made it 250 to go from the cutoff and Joe Hachem three-bet to 650 from the button. Esfandiari gave it up and Hachem raked in the pot.
"What's that thing they used to say, baby? Aussie, Aussie?" Scotty Nguyen asked.
"Oi! Oi! Oi!" replied a Hachem supporter in the crowd, right on cue.
