Christopher Lindh raised to 3,500 preflop, and Freddy Deeb three-bet to 11,000. Lindh thought for a minute, and as he was thinking, you could feel the intensity in the air. This was the first hand of the day, and play has a distinctly different aura than yesterday. Players are starting to think not only about making day 2 or 3, but making the money, appearing at the final table, and even winning the bracelet.
After a tense minute, Lindh four-bet to 27,500, and now Deeb took his time making his decision. After another tense minute, Deeb called, and the dealer brought for the flop. Lindh led out for 22,000, Deeb thought for a minute, then slid his cards to the dealer.
