Hand #158: James Duke raised to 800,000 and Jonathan Dimmig made it 1.7 million to go. Jeffrey Coburn folded and Duke quickly grabbed the chips for the call. We saw the flop and Dimmig continued for 1.15 million.
Again Duke quickly went into his stack, but only to play with the chips and giving it some thought. He then released the cards to the dealer and Dimmig raked in the pot.
Hand #159: Coburn limped from the small blind and Duke raised it up for another 600,000. “That will take it,” announced the floor man and Duke stacked the chips.
Hand #160: Coburn raised to 1 million from the button. Duke folded the small blind but Dimmig called the additional 600,000 to see the flop. Dimmig checked, Coburn bet 1.4 million and Dimmig moved all in. That shut down the action and Coburn folded.
Hand #161: Coburn received a walk.
Hand #162: Dimmig raised to 800,000 and Duke made the call. The dealer spread the flop and Duke bet 1 million. It didn't take long for Dimmig to raise it up to 2.6 million and Duke counted out the chips for a call.
Duke sat there silently for a minute and then mucked his cards.
