From under the gun, Russell Thomas raised to 4,000. Action folded to [Removed:163] in the small blind, and he made the call. Jesse Sylvia, who happens to be Thomas' fellow Octo-Niner at the World Series of Poker Main Event final table, reraised from the big blind to 11,500. Thomas four-bet to 24,000, and that knocked Sheikh out of the way. Sylvia also folded, and Thomas won the pot.
